Miss Behave / Groupon FAQs.
Miss Behave is very excited to have Groupon feature our mini boudoir session! We have put together some FAQ’s to hopefully answer any questions you may have about this amazing deal!
1. Do I have to be a size 2 to get great photo’s? What if I don’t like my tummy/arms/thighs? What if I am really nervous? Will you help me pose?
Let’s be honest…as women we are all our own worst critics. But, there is no need to worry as Miss Behave celebrates women of all sizes and helps you to embrace your body as it is! We have an arsenal of poses and lighting techniques that can hide any area’s that you may feel self conscious about and by the end of the shoot the last thing you will be thinking of is your ‘problem area’. We also retouch all your chosen images so we can smooth out any area’s and give your body and skin that extra little perfecting boost. Our retouching helps with that last 10 pounds and also gives you the look that you had a really good night’s sleep. (The best part is you will have the photographic evidence forever!) And don’t worry, everyone is a little nervous of the idea of getting into your intimates in front of a camera. We guarantee you by the time you are 10 minutes into your shoot you will have let go of your butterflies and be enjoying every minute of your session. We will coach you along the way and promise you will be just fine. Our photographer will give you a ton of direction throughout the shoot in terms of everything from your poses, to what to do with your hands, to how to obtain that “sexy” look with your facial expressions.
2. What is included in the Groupon Miss Behave Voucher?
It includes a 45 minute session that includes approximately 10 minutes of personal styling and 35 minutes of camera time. Our styling includes giving our professional opinion on putting together your perfect sexy look by picking out your best outfit, accessories, and heels. Your mini session includes one look, one outfit and one background with minor changes. You will select from up to 50 proofs that can be viewed in our studio a week after your session takes place.

You can also bring along your iPod with your favorite play lists and a bottle of wine to loosen you up. Once you have booked your session we will send you a getting ready email with some other suggestions of what to bring with you.

15. Can I bring a friend with me?
You are more than welcome to bring a friend to the shoot if it makes you more comfortable. Or even better find a friend that is interested in getting her own shots done and you can go through the experience together. We offer a BFF discount if you come together and you will both get a bonus $25 credit toward your product order. Also keep in mind that this friend should be someone you are ok with getting down to your intimates around.
16. Do you take walk-ins?
We do not take walk in’s and all of our consultations and sessions are scheduled far in advance. We work by appointment only.
17. Do you offer a consultation before my session date?
We will do an over the phone consulation and we can discuss outfit idea’s, backgrounds and any idea’s you may have.You may come in for an in person consultation for an additional fee of $25. Unless you have a specific idea in mind we find that an in person consultation is typically not necessary. We do understand if you want to come in to meet us before the shoot but please call to make an appointment.
18. Will my final images be retouched?
Yes, we do beauty retouching to all of your final images that you have chosen. Our beauty airbrushing includes skin perfecting ( wrinkles, stretch marks, cellulite) and body contouring. We are also very careful to not overly retouch the photo’s…the last thing we would want is for you not to recognize yourself in the photo’s. We just make it look like you had a great night’s sleep and have been taking very good care of yourself.
19. How long will it take to get my prints back?
Most reprints and albums can be turned around within a week of your order being placed with us. However, during peak times of the year (Christmas and Valentine’s Day) we may require additional time. If you are purchasing photo’s for the holidays please be sure to get your print orders in by December 5th for Christmas and January 23rd for Valentine’s Day just to be safe.
20. When do I arrive for my photo session?
If you are utilizing our hair and make up stylists then you will arrive an hour before we are set to start shooting. If you are coming with your hair and make up done please arrive 5 minutes early. If you are more than 10 minutes late the time will be taken out of your allotted shooting time. Thanks and we look forward to bringing out your sexy side soon!
