2023 Boudoir Model Call

May 17, 2023

Please read the ENTIRE POST before applying! Incomplete submissions will NOT be accepted!!

I’m looking for a select number of people to be a part of this Model Call – open to all women and even couples boudoir. Storyteller Collective Boudoir is an INCLUSIVE studio that is LGBTQ+IA & BIPOC friendly, and I’ve photographed people from all walks of life, orientations, and skins tones. Photography is an art form, and I believe that everyone deserves their own unique experience of being in front of the camera. I am looking for REAL people, you DON’T have to be a model to apply. As always, I will prompt and pose you fully, so you don’t need to worry about that! Does this sound like a fun time? I hope so! That’s what it’s all about. I’m excited to see your application!

The Details and What you need to know

LOCATION: The Shoot will take place at the newly re-located studio in Des Moines, Iowa. If your application is chosen, when you arrive to your session, please come makeup and hair ready to begin on time. As mentioned, no modeling experience is required. In fact, I love it when my Model Call clients are like regular people. It makes the Boudoir experience even more fun and relaxed.

AGE REQUIREMENT: You must be 18+ years of age, and may be asked to show proof with a state or government issued ID, if there is any question of age. Due to the nature of this type of photography, there are laws that I have to abide by, age being one of them.

BOOKING FEE: Discounted $250 Retainer Booking Fee to schedule your session that includes 10 complimentary edited digital photos (no pressure to purchase any products, but Payment Plans are available including the PrePayment Plan, In-House interest-free Payments, and AfterPay through Square if you qualify). All products and digital files must be paid in-full before they will be ordered and delivered.

MODEL RELEASE: You agree to a FULL MODEL RELEASE on all images taken at your session, if you are selected. The images will be used for marketing/promotional purposes, displayed in both print and digital format at the photographer’s discretion. This is because the purpose of the Model Call is for sharing the photos and you are receiving a discounted price. If at any time, you decide you’d like to keep your images private, you’ll need to pay for the full session fee + 10 edited photos.
