FAQ: What to Expect from Ain't No Body Like This Body Boudoir Events!

Our mission:

Our boudoir events are for ladies who live for their universal tribe. We make feeling sexy in your skin easy by hosting an all-day girl hang in a cozy environment with all of your favorite things: coffee, champagne, snacks, bad-babe music, chick flicks, and pampering services to set the tone. The environment of our shoot changes with each event, but is consistent in its ability to foster community, connectedness, and body positivity. Read on to hear what you can expect from each of our events.

Q: Where are these events?

A: We change the location for each event because every boudoir experience is unique. We host events in cozy houses and rentals, welcoming and upscale hotels, and getaway and retreat locations. The spaces we select are bright, fresh, intimate, and embrace the seasonal offerings of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Unless otherwise (and clearly) noted, we host our events and around the neighborhoods of Seattle.

Q: How many people participate?

A: Each event has spaces for up to 8 participants. If you want to share the event with friends, we recommend booking early to ensure you both get spaces in the same event.

Q: What does the event cost? And how do payments work?

A: That depends on when you book! We have a special Early Babe for women who book two or more months before our event date. The Early Babe gets the worm (or the discount)! Our pricing for day retreats is consistently under $600. You can pay in full OR split the total cost into a deposit and 1 or 2 remaining payments. All payments are due a month before the event.

Q: What does the day-long schedule look like?

A: Our events start around brunch time (9:00-10:00am) and run all day until dinner time (5:00-6:00pm). Each participant is scheduled for a 45 minute hair and make-up session followed by 45 minutes of boudoir shoot time. After you sign up, you fill out a contact form to opt for your preferred time slots and we reach out to schedule your time slot the week of the event. Whatever your scheduled time slot, everyone is welcome to hang at our getaway space for the whole day to enjoy our pampering services, each other’s company, and delicious food and drinks.

Q: What kind of services are offered?

A: Every event is supported by the incredible photography by Kate Miller Photography; hair and make-up services by Holly Tipp Makeup; and event planning and coordination by Tapestry Event Company. Just like every event location is unique, so are our event services. We bring in other talented artists like florists, body positivity coaching, catering, and/or massage therapy. Check out the event page for which services to expect.

Q: What if this is my first time? What if I feel uncomfortable in front of the camera? What if I don’t know what to wear?

A: TOTALLY NORMAL—AND WE HAVE YOUR BACK. Your boudoir session will be exactly how you want it to be. Upon sign up, we share with you a thoughtful questionnaire to understand the “why” behind your shoot, what we can do to create a comfortable environment for you, and what your concerns are so we can be supportive. We can help you choose outfits, direct your posing, build your confidence, and laugh through any awkwardness. Bring it all into the room and be ready to let all your quirks shine.

Q: Is my boudoir shoot private or open to the other participants?

A: It’s up to you! Some women enjoy the shared space getting ready and pampered, then want a private, intimate shoot to help them get in the zone and shed any layers of insecurity that might come with an audience. Other women attend this event with friends and thrive off of encouragement and laughter during their shoot. The choice is yours, and if you would like your lady friends present, just let us know in the contact form so we can schedule you accordingly.

Q: What do I receive after my shoot?

A: After your session, you will receive a gallery of proofs within a week. Participants pick their top 10 photos to transform into 10 edited, high resolution images that come with the price of your boudoir session. You also have the option to purchase any extra images, prints, or albums through the photo gallery website!
