I take my job as a boudoir photographer very seriously. Your comfort is the main priority. Discretion is something you should expect with boudoir photography. Your career and your private life may depend on it. I’m not going to be the one to jeopardize that. Promise. Clients who choose to allow me to share their images sign a release form giving me written permission. If you are okay with your images being on social media/website, please bring it up at the ordering session. 🙂
Some clients love to have their images and the effort they put in shown off on social media and my website. If you are one of these clients, I would LOVE to use your images. I appreciate every client who allows this.
What if I only want a few photos shown?
That’s great. Let me know which ones and I will gladly keep the private! I will be forever appreciative as well. Several of the images I take may only show a part of the body. The most private clients allow these to be shown as their privacy remains in tact.
What is on the Release Form?
It says I have permission to share the images where I want. I can use them on social media, my website, other forms of advertising, and competition. If you choose to only allow certain images to be shown, we will add an addendum to the release form stating which ones you allow. I follow that addendum to a tee. I promise.
What about the digital downloads of the photos?
With the purchase of an album, digital files are included. I upload these images onto an online gallery where you can download them. The gallery is completely private. I am the only one who has access to it and can share anything prior to emailing the client the link. I know who logs into the gallery and when they last logged in. The gallery expires after two weeks. The client is to have downloaded AND backed up the images. At expiration, I delete the images from the online gallery. They are backed up on my cloud and hard drives, but aren’t accessible to anyone except me.
Honestly, if you really don’t want your images to be used, I won’t be offended or think less of you. My main concern is your privacy. Don’t worry in the least about pressure to use them in my portfolio. 🙂 It won’t happen!

Need more reasons to do a boudoir photoshoot? Check out Jennifer’s session here. She said this about her experience
“A friend referred me, and Tracy exceeded my expectations! She was very professional. Still to this day, she continues to carry herself with such professionalism. She knew I had never done anything like this before. Tracy greeted me with a hand crafted champagne glass filled with a light mimosa. Not to mention her studio was so beautiful! Tracy offers a lot of natural lighting which makes the quality of photos extra special. We worked and we worked hard! She stayed completely engaged and was patient with me the entire time. Ladies, I recommend Boudoir by Tracy Lynn. She will provide a great experience while still feeling safe and comfortable. Dignity in private?.”
