The Bloom Experience

After a few days, you'll receive an email for your reveal session. Together, we'll go through each of your images and select the ones you LOVE. From there, we'll decide what collection you'd like to purchase.

Reveal session

Finally! You'll arrive at your session at 10 am to start hair and makeup. Once that's finished, we go over your lingerie and start shooting! You'll leave feeling amazing! 

Shoot day

You'll be sent a questionnaire to answer questions on your nudity comfort levels + questions about you! You'll also be sent a preparation guide.

Pre shoot prep

Once you inquire, we'll schedule a time to chat on the phone. On our phone call, we'll go over the experience + any pricing questions together.

Payment Plans

After your boudoir session, we will schedule either an in-person or video call reveal session where we will go through your photographs together. Each client will see between 80-100 images.

Our clients spend an average of $2,700 to $3,500 on their products. The minimum investment is $1,400.
For the $1,400 minimum investment, you can purchase a 10X10 linen album with 30 retouched images or a combination of a la carte items. This is in addition to the $350 session fee.

There is a 5% service fee with an in-house payment plan. There is a 5% discount for paying in full at your ordering appointment.
To receive your products immediately, I highly recommend signing up for Paypal credit. You will be able to receive the Paypal funds immediately to pay for your purchase. This allows you to pay off Paypal rather than Bloom Boudoir's in-house payment plans and receive your products in a few weeks rather than months.

"Chelsea made my first boudoir photography experience absolutely amazing. Every step of the way I felt comfortable and safe. She was my own personal hype woman and took all the guesswork out of it - she advised me where to look, how to pose, what to do with my facial expression, and even helped me pick out the best outfits! The images are drop dead gorgeous. 10/10 hire Chelsea for a truly unforgettable experience."



"My boudoir experience with Chelsea was amazing. She coached me along the way and made me feel super confident and sexy. The pictures turned out incredible and I would recommend her one thousand times over!! "



"I chose to do my boudoir shoot with Chelsea because of her ability to create comfort during her sessions. She really understands what women want. She can achieve exactly what how you want those pictures to make you feel - sexy and irresistible - with the press of a shutter. I was in love with every picture in my gallery. Your self-belief changes dramatically after a session with Chelsea. She is pure talent. "



The $350 session fee covers studio rental, professional hair + makeup (yes, you're getting pampered!), and some champagne. Prints, albums, and additional images are purchased separately. 

+ What does the $350 session fee cover?

On average, my clients will invest between $2,700 to $3,500 on their boudoir session images, prints, and products. Our minimum investment is $1,400.

+ What is the average investment?

Boudoir sessions take place in Richmond, VA at a studio. Once a month I will travel to Virginia Beach and shoot boudoir at a studio there if a client requests. 

+ Where do the sessions take place?

From arrival, to hair and makeup, to finishing up shooting, the entire process takes up to 3 hours. 

+ How long do the day-of sessions take?

You will receive a link to schedule a reveal session with me a few days after your session. I know you're eager to see your photos! So you can schedule a session as early as the week after. 

+ When can I see my images?

Normally we shoot on weekdays starting either at 10 am or 1:30 pm. If a Sunday is needed or a travel session is needed, we'll chat more about timing!
