LEARN THE ART AND BUSINESS OF BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY
Yes, you CAN make art AND money!
As a photographer, you want to make beautiful art. As a boudoir photographer, you probably also want to make sure your clients have a great experience, while making them look and feel beautiful… And all of that is important to the goal of being a good boudoir photographer… But what about the goal of a growing a successful, satisfying, and sustainable business? To do that, you need to:
Make your clients truly ecstatic.
Make yourself stand out in the marketplace.
Make time for your loved ones… and yourself.
If you struggle to make ends meet, if you can't find the "right" clients, if you feel lost when it comes to business, pricing, sales, and how to actually make a good living doing what you love...while still having time to spend with your loved ones... you NEED The "Shoot to Sell" approach.
DIGITAL EDUCATION & PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS
With the “Shoot to Sell” Boudoir Posing Guide, you will: Learn "sets" of related poses that are universally flattering to every figure (plus which poses to stay away from and how to modify others for certain body types.) Learn how to use slight variations to create up to half a dozen sell-able images from the same pose. Better yet, learn how to get your clients (who are not models) to relax and feel confident and comfortable enough to execute the poses beautifully. And best of all, learn posing that really, truly, absolutely SELLS.

Literally nothing is as important in boudoir photography as getting posing right. Learn to flatter every body type, every age, every size; learn how to create huge variety in your shoots, and learn how to use your posing technique to substantially increase your sales. Posing is the foundation of great boudoir images, and therefore, is the foundation of a successful boudoir business.
LIGHTING FOR BOUDOIR
After posing, flattering and interesting lighting is the secondary key to capturing images that WOW your clients and set you apart from (and ahead of) the pack. Lighting can be used to set a mood, flatter your client, and create variety in your sessions. (Have I mentioned yet how variety leads to big sales?)
RETOUCHING FOR BOUDOIR
The final polish provided by quality (not too much, not too little, but "just right") retouching will leave your clients virtually incapable of walking away from ANY of their stunning, flawless images!
WARDROBE, HAIR AND MAKEUP, & SET/STUDIO DESIGN FOR BOUDOIR
These are the extra ingredients -- after posing, lighting, and retouching -- that make up a successful session for both you and your client. Getting these areas right is the "last 10%" to having every single client leave your studio ecstatic with her experience as well as her images.
BUSINESS MENTORING - THE SHOOT TO SELL APPROACH
What is The "Shoot to Sell" Approach?
It's a chance to elevate your business while staying true to your passion and achieving and maintaining a happy work-life balance.
It's a chance to learn from others who have achieved what you want (why re-invent the wheel?)
It's a chance to share and immerse yourself in invaluable information and strategies for making your clients ecstatic AND enjoying your most successful business possible.
I used to offer the Shoot to Sell Approach in classes and workshops, but after completing my first ebook and having worked more with private mentoring, I found these approaches to be not only more popular, but also more fulfilling and more effective in making changes in my students' boudoir businesses.
I truly believe (as do my students) that private mentoring classes are the best and quickest way to make substantial change in your photography business. Instruction is targeted to your specific needs, and it is 100% personal, hands-on instruction and problem-solving.
The Shoot to Sell Approach focuses on:
Learn how to double or even triple your sales average while also doubling your client satisfaction. This is not a joke. This is literally the way it works when you understand what your client truly wants and needs from you.
As artists, most photographers find there is nothing more challenging than pricing their work properly. I can help you overcome your blocks, figure out your true costs of doing business -- costs in terms of both time and money -- and create a pricing menu that will keep you growing and thriving instead of getting burned out and growing to hate the career you once loved. I can teach you how to price for both passion AND profit.
THE CLIENT EXPERIENCE
Learn the "little things" you can do to turn every client who walks through your door into a raving brand evangelist who does your marketing for you just by telling everyone she knows just how amazing you are, and how her boudoir session changed her life.
THE BUSINESS STUFF
Learn the ins and outs, the minutiae, the stuff we like to avoid, but that makes your business run like a business. Contracts, planning, legalities, and more.
Antoine Powell - Cayman Islands
"I just have to say that mentoring with Natalie Kita was one of the best decisions I have ever made!! I was very green before I attended the mentoring session and after the session I left being blown away with the level of information that Natalie shared with me which resolved most all of my questions on shooting boudoir photography at that time. Natalie did not hold back on providing lighting, posing and post processing information about Boudoir photography during our mentoring session – I mean she really shares a wealth of information. I left the session just being filled with loads of practical knowledge, some photos for my portfolio and most importantly for me inspiration. I am forever grateful to Natalie for the wealth of information and her passion for Boudoir photography. If someone is looking to take their Boudoir photography to the next level – then mentoring with Natalie Kita is one of the best investments you could ever make.”
Susan Page - Palmerton, PA
"I’ve invested in various workshops and mentoring sessions with other photographers in the industry, and although I’ve always gotten at least a little something out of them, I never felt like I’d really gotten a good return on my investment. Until I signed up for a mentoring session with Natalie. The return on my investment with Natalie was a game changer for my business, her mentoring literally paid for itself in the first client sale afterwards. Prior to working with Natalie my sales average was $1500 per client. Since our mentoring session my sales average has been a consistent $3500 and is growing! Natalie was very open and forthcoming with her information, super fun to work with, doled out the tough love where needed, and truly seemed excited and invested in helping me grow as a business woman. If your studio is a boutique model and you’re struggling with the business side of your photography work, pick up the phone and call Natalie!”
Agnes Fohn - Sherman, CT
"Natalie is a goddess sent! I was struggling so hard with my business and didn't know where to turn when Natalie came to the rescue!! My mentoring sessions with her are worth MORE than their weight in gold!! She helped me break through my blocks and approach my business in a completely different way. Her techniques for everything from sales to posing to personal blocks (and more) helped me to look at what I was doing wrong and change my entire outlook on how to run a SUCCESSFUL boudoir business!! Although I am sure her coaching would help ANY business. Thank you Natalie from the bottom of my heart for your kindness, compassion and ass kicking that I needed! You are truly a gift and I am so grateful for your help and light that you bring to this world!!"
