I call it Double Exposure. A repeat business. A customer that comes back for more.
There are many reason why a woman would want more than just one photo session in her life. Usually it’s to celebrate a milestone, something to remember. I’ve had clients that came back after they lost weight, changed their looks, or changed a boyfriend ; ) . Some come in before, during and after pregnancy. Others, love their experience so much and get so inspired, that they book a session just to pamper themselves.
When Sarah called me up and wanted to make an appointment for a Boudoir Photo shoot I was not at all surprised. What made her experience a bit different from others is that her first session was more than two years ago, when she just turned eighteen. The two shoots could not be more different from one another. Not only did Sarah change and mature, but Oni Studio did as well. Two years brought an unrecognizable change in our quality, knowledge and experience. But enough about us. Let’s let Sarah tell her story.
My first experience at Oni Studio was two years ago, I was eighteen then and very nervous and shy. I was introduced to Victoria when my friend brought me along to her shoot, and instantly after it was done I was ready to book my own.When I got to the shoot I had no idea what to do, but Victoria helped pick each outfit and made me feel comfortable. During each shoot she told me how to pose and definitely knew what she was doing. I brought the friend who’s shoot I went to, I did feel a little uncomfortable doing the lingerie shoots in front of her, but I got over that as soon as Victoria started shooting. Back then her shoots were very inexpensive, for a CD with 15 pictures on it, and that’s it. Two years later and WOW things have changed! Victoria has gotten way more popular, and has more experience under her belt. Prices have gone up, but it is well worth the money. When I arrived Victoria went right to work looking at my outfits and planning the shoot. Then I sat down and got pampered by Ashley from Make-Up Your Mind, who did my makeup and hair. The sets are more diverse now. Before it was a little room with a back drop, and now there is a whole house to play with. We were on a set of mirrors, on a desk, then to some stairs, on to a bed, and lastly outside onto a motorcycle I had brought over. Victoria made me feel so comfortable and relaxed that I didn’t have time to think about the fact I wasn’t wearing much in some of the shots. And I love the difference of the photos from two years ago to today. The first shots almost look like high school pictures, cute maybe a little sexy, but the ones from this year are….holly cow is that me?! I’m hot!, and usually I never say those kinds of things about myself. Just by this one shoot with Victoria, I have gained so much confidence about my self that I used to never have. And I am now looking to branch out on modeling. Hopefully I will get to work with Victoria again. She is wonderful, and can make you laugh when your starting to feel uncomfortable. I think everyone should have this experience. ~Sarah G.
