Shawn Sawyer Photography Boudoir and Privacy


Does this sound like you?

You’ve been thinking about a boudoir session but just aren't ready to pull the trigger. You’ve seen your friends and other people's photos posted all over social media and thought, "Uh-uh- not gonna happen! I would implode if anyone saw my photos!"


ARE YOU AFRAID YOUR BOUDOIR PHOTOS WILL BE POSTED ONLINE?

Shawn Sawyer Photography Boudoir understands that boudoir photography is very personal and I respect your privacy. I will not share images online or in print without your permission. I will never sell images to third parties and I never "tag" you on social media. In addition, I do not share any nude images. Your decision to be photographed by Shawn Sawyer Photography Boudoir in any way is yours alone and I will never share these photos without express permission in writing. 

PRIVACY ON THE DAY OF THE Session

You will select from one of my two BEAUTIFUL studios in Virginia Beach or Suffolk.

On the day of your session, the only people present at the studio are me, my hair and makeup artist, my assistant and you.


PRIVACY DURING THE Session

During your session, you are given a private space to change. But never fear- me or my assistant are always close by in case you need help with an outfit!


PRIVACY AFTER THE Session

After your session with me, I will begin work on your images. I retouch, brighten and slightly smooth each image by hand. I then upload them into a password-protected private online gallery for proofing and download.  I host the images online for 60 days allowing you to view, download and order gifts.


About a week or so after delivery of your gallery you will receive a model release. Clients participating in model calls, waived studio fees, etc will not receive this as you have already agreed to image usage in return for waived or reduced fees. The model release contract allows you several levels of privacy. It allows for full use, image by image, SSP VIP Group Only as well as anonymous use and no use at all.


I am extremely firm on this policy, I do not post or share any client images unless I have a signed model release.


allowing me to share your images is not mandatory to have a boudoir session.
