Wardrobe & Styling:
The client is responsible for choices in wardrobe, makeup, and hairstyle. No reshoots are available due to client disliking the wardrobe or styling in photos.

Editing style is at the discretion of the photographer. Blemish removal is standard editing practice, however thinning of the body, lengthening of hair, removal of stretch marks, tattoos, etc. is not common practice and will not be done in this studio.
All clients are asked to sign a model release that grants Sophia Barra Boudoir permission to use any photographs taken of you during your session in marketing and advertising (this will be signed during the reveal). If you do not feel comfortable having your images on social media, do not sign the release. You won’t hurt our feelings! You may also hand pick which images you are comfortable with showing and which to keep private. We are dedicated to your comfort and privacy. You may rescind your decision to share images at any time, and we will take down any images you aren’t comfortable sharing immediately.
All products produced under this contract is protected by US Copyright Law. Valerie Simpson / Sophia Barra Boudoir is the sole owner and copyright holder of every image taken during your session. You are more than welcome to share any and all digital images you have received, or photos you have taken of your prints/products. In fact we encourage it! Please do NOT put a filter on any of our images, we spend a long time editing to make our images a certain way, and filters detract from our artistic vision. Tagging is not required but is greatly appreciated! @sophiabarraboudoir or @styledbysbb
