Most of our clients come from a referral–someone else whose senior portraits we’ve done in the past, or perhaps they’ve seen a post on Instagram (@boulayphotos) or Facebook (Boulay Photography). Because we are a Boutique Studio, we pride ourselves on the relationships we build with our clients. We want to get to know you well and want you and your family to feel completely comfortable with us.
The first direct interaction you’re likely to have with Boulay Photography is with the wonderful Mrs. Janice, our Studio Manager. Janice has been with Boulay for over 10 years, and knows the in’s and out’s of everything we do. She talks with clients and potential clients daily, discussing everything from locations to wardrobe to pricing. Janice will also schedule your planning session, portrait session, and your ordering appointment.
Your planning session is key to a successful shoot. We ask all of our clients come to our studio for a 30 minute consultation. Most importantly, we get to know one another at this time, but we also plan everything about your session–from clothing choices to location to any sports or special interests you wish to include. We talk about the minute details that will make your session reflect who you are. Perhaps you have a favorite pet you’d like to include or an awesome car or truck. Maybe you have a special talent or passion. Your session is all about you, and we want this to be a fun experience, one you will look back on fondly for years to come. We also show you our entire product line–wall portraits, albums, metals–and discuss pricing.

Where you have your shoot depends on you. Do you like the country? Barns? Historic houses? Cities? Maybe you are interested in a destination shoot. Bring us your ideas and we will help make them a reality.
Approximately 1-2 weeks after your session, you will come back to the studio to see the best of the best images we captured, and make all the decisions about which ones you would like to have in your album and on your walls. You may feel overwhelmed when you first see all of your beautiful images, but trust us; your ordering appointment will take less than 2 hours and all the decisions will be made.
We are currently booking for late summer and fall for the Class of 2019. If you would like to get on our calendar, we’d love to talk to you more. Give us a call at 615-289-6045, fill out a client information form under the “Contact Us” tab, or message us on Instagram (@boulayphotos). We can’t wait to hear from you!
