Boudoir Q&A – Ahnvee Photography

Ahnvee Photography receives several questions on a daily basis regarding our services, but the service we receive the most questions about are boudoir sessions. Back in December, Tiffany took some time to answer the most frequently asked questions when it comes to boudoir photography. We have answered the most important questions and answers here for all potential boudoir clients to reference when booking a session. Will you share my boudoir images online? First and foremost, this session is for you. A lot of people get it done for their significant others and give them as gifts but you will learn within the first thirty minutes that this whole experience is for you. You’re going to gain confidence; you’re going to feel empowered and look at yourself in a better light. That being said, you don’t have to share any of your images with the world. If you feel that you want to speak about your experience and how it changed you, how it gave you the confidence to show off how beautiful your body is and how sexy you can be in your own skin, then you absolutely can. I do not share anything publicly because I would probably have […]

Boudoir Outfit Guide

One of the first questions we get when women book their Boudoir session is, “What should I wear?” When people think of Boudoir photography they automatically think, “lingerie”. While lingerie is a popular option, it is certainly not the only option. For my Boudoir shoot, I wore a pretty bra and panties with a lacy robe as well as a pair of cheeky panties with an off the shoulder cropped sweater and knee highs. You do not have to wear all the fancy, expensive, or strappy things! With any photography session, you want to stay away from whites, brights, and lights. Whites make most subjects look washed out, and always seem to pick up and absorb other colors around it. It’s very difficult to get a “true white” in a photograph. Brights are picked up more neon in camera, and it also transfers onto skin in a photograph, so staying away is your best option. While light colors are good for enhancing and accentuating areas, they will often times make subjects appear bigger than they are. Dark colors help to conceal areas, and neutrals are always a good option, especially with boudoir photography.  The most important part, however, is how […]

Professional Labs vs Consumer Labs for Printing

Unless you’re in the photography world, you may not know that there are strong differences in the finished product when choosing where to have your professional images printed.  Not all printing services are created the same, and despite which photographer you choose, each will have their own opinions on where is the best place to have the final images printed.  You will find some similarity between professional opinions, but the one opinion guaranteed across the board with professionals is that consumer photo labs (Walgreens, CVS, Shutterfly, etc) typically produce images that pale in quality comparisons to professional photo labs like WHCC or Miller‘s. As with everything, the proof is often in the contrasts, and we didn’t slack in doing our own homework to see how the more commonly used services measured up against our preferred printer.  Keep in mind that when it comes to art, its creators have a vested interest in the quality you select to display your final images.  We here at Ahnvee Photography care a great deal about the quality of your printed images and therefore, we DO NOT add any additional charges to the existing cost to print from our preferred professional lab, WHCC (White House […]
