Women’s portrait photographer searches can produce a wide range of image possibilities. To make it easier, we provide guidance on several important criteria to consider that can help narrow down your search. This way, you will get the type of women’s portraits you’re looking for. Here’s a few key considerations to ensure you get the best photographs.

Look At Each Portrait Photographer’s Portfolio

Here, at Lunar Body Boudoir, we specialize in photographing women. We offer maternity, contemporary beauty portraits, boudoir, headshots, and personal branding. Look to see if the portrait studio offers variety in style, genre, lighting, posing, and artistic vision.

Great women’s portraits evoke a feeling or an emotion or bring you back to a memory. Many women seeking portraits are celebrating a milestone, an achievement, or wanting to document a time in their life through contemporary portraits. Portraits are important because it’s how we choose to be remembered. It’s the energy we choose to communicate with conscious intention.

Read Photography Studio Reviews

One of the best ways to research a women’s portrait photographer is to read reviews and testimonials. Ask friends, family, and other people who’ve had their portraits done by them in the past to see what their experience was like. Research online customer reviews of different photographers and read up on any awards they may have won as well. This will help you get an idea of their style and service.

Make Sure Your Portrait Photographer Understands Your Vision and Style

When selecting a portrait photographer, make sure they understand your hopes and goals for the aesthetic of your portraits. You may have something specific in mind or you may be open to their suggestions. Either way, ensure your photographer is someone who can translate your vision into stunning photographs that you’ll love for years to come. Again, verifying that that have a portfolio that aligns with your vision and offers a lot of variety in lighting, posing, and styling is key.

Clarify Photoshoot Pricing and Finance Options

Keep in mind that price will vary based on level of service, experience offered, and quality of portraits. For example, if you choose a portrait experience that offers a personalized, private session with a lot of guidance, the investment will reflect that. In comparison, may be a lower cost to choose a portrait studio that does not offer a full experience or shoots outdoors and uses natural light.

To ensure you get the best value and experience, make sure you thoroughly research the type of photoshoot experience you’re looking for and pricing that correlates with the quality of images you’re looking for. It’s important to understand the costs associated with their services and packages before booking. Don’t be afraid to ask questions so that you understand how each women’s portrait studio pricing works. Remember to ask what’s included in their packages, and any other financial information they may have. At Lunar Body Boudoir, we offer several different payment options including financing that provides many options for our clients.
