Your Boudoir experience awaits....
Boudoir is an intimate portraiture and self empowerment session. It is my goal to help you see yourself in a new light, renew your femininity, and begin to love the women inside that time may have forgotten. It is an excellent out of the box gift for yourself or for your intimate relationship with your partner. It is also a unique way to preserve your beauty and celebrate the strength of your new found confidence.
Prior to your experience
From the initial inquiry to delivery of your amazing gallery of images, we will be with you every step of the way helping you plan your dream sessions. Each client will receive unique personalized care to ensure we reveal YOUR inner beauty! Leading up to you Experience, we will be sending you over several different emails to read as well as a questionnaire about your session. We have several opportunities for touch points if you would like to talk to a member of our staff on the phone to go over any questions or concerns about your upcoming Experience with us. It is our goal that our clients feel completely prepared for their shoot day, so that when you arrive you can feel as comfortable as possible about what is going to happen through each part of the process. If you ever have questions, we are always here to answer them (even if you think they're silly questions!). Reaching out to us via email is the best way to contact us, and we can set up a phone call with you if necessary.
The Day of your Experience
On the day of your Experience, you will be greeted by a me and I will help get you settled into the studio space. We offer a variety of snacks and drinks that you are free to enjoy (help yourself). Once we get you settled in, one of our resident stylists will guide you into the Hair and Makeup Room where they will prepare you for your photoshoot. The stylist will ask you some questions about your preferences before she begins her service, so that she is able to fully customize your look to cater to your specific requests! We will always make sure you are in love with your transformation before moving on to any other part of our day.
Next up: the photoshoot! Obviously the most anticipated part of the day where all the magic happens. We will pose you from head to toe! Not all of the poses are easy, but we promise that they are worth it no matter how silly you feel in them. Our coaching process is top notch, we are the experts in posing women and this is undoubtedly why you hired our studio for your session. You are welcome to have a few poses saved as special requests to show us, however this is usually not necessary. Just put your trust in us, and go with the flow. We promise to give you our very best!
after your experience
You will return to the studio 1-2 weeks later for your Private Image Reveal & Ordering Appointment to view your images and select which ones you would like to purchase. We will help design all of your gorgeous products, make black and white selections, and any other customizations you desire at your Ordering Appointment! You will also have the opportunity to add on any additional products to your purchase at this time if you so choose. Once this process is complete, we wrap up for the day.
Anywhere from 4-6 weeks following your shoot day, you will receive all of your finished products delivered straight to your door. And that's a wrap! We have a lot of repeat clients, so we will very likely see you again soon. Some clients even book their session for the following year before they leave their Image Reveal, and you can save some money by doing the same if you wish!
The Studio is located in Rixeyville, VA. It is a 40 acre wooded area so you will have all the privacy you will need! Our exact address will be disclosed to you after booking your session, as we are a "by appointment only" business and don't want people just popping by during a private session!! The space is devoted to shooting only boudoir!
Are you ready for an experience that will change your confidence?
Are you nervous? That is totally normal! All of our clients tell us that they were SO SCARED to book their session, but that they are SO HAPPY they did and that they never imagined they would love the way they looked in their images. I promise, you are in GREAT hands and we are going to WOW you every step of the way!
Rachel makes boudoir so effortless! The whole process was just so comfortable I hardly noticed the passing of time. She's great at describing and showing poses (perf for a goob like me) and her positive feedback is addictive. If you're looking for someone who's relaxed while also willing to push a boundary or three, book your sesh with Rachel.
I loved every single part of my experience working with Rachel! I had so much fun and gained so much confidence. I absolutely love all of my photos. Rachel goes to great lengths to ensure the experience is fun and has amazing results! From the beginning of hair and makeup, to posing, socializing, and then receiving the final product - everything was incredible!! I highly recommend Rachel and Briarley Images!!
So considering I had to get practically naked, no one would have made me feel anymore comfortable prancing around in my (not so skinnies) as rachel! We jammed out to some throwback Blink and Spice Girls, and apparently I managed to look sexy. And she did a fantastic job at capturing it and not making me look like a total fool!The best part was when I got my photos back and I expected to cringe at every photo, I did the exact opposite and loved every single one of them! I don’t even care if my husband did!(but he did...right? �)She’s fantastic and talented and beautiful and fun to hang out with and I wouldn’t recommend anyone else for any other occasion! Especially if you’re looking for a boudoir photo session to wow your husband right into getting a vasectomy!
