THE THP Experience

Telling Stories With Intimate Images

Many people underestimate the ability for photography to help heal the soul. For four years now, we have used it as a way to reconnect our clients to their bodies and it has resulted in 100% of our clients having a better view of themselves post session. We take what we do here incredibly seriously, but we do it in a way that is fun, effortless, and allows you the freedom to explore what it means to be the truest form of yourself. Whether you want us to adorn you in fur and glitter (I’m not gonna say no), wear nothing at all, or showcase the connection you have with your partner, we are here to help you. While the photos are important (did you know that looking at photographs of yourself helps you become more comfortable with your body in real life? In addition to that, it has been proven to help prolong the positive feelings you have the day of your session…and your brain loves that shit.) it is the experience that we want you to remember the most. You are doing something that many people are too scared to do, you are doing something that some people may have said you COULDN’T (they can go kick rocks), and you are doing something FOR you and we think that is probably the most important thing: The majority of our clients tend to be caregivers, putting others before themselves, so we love when our clients take a chance and invest in themselves…and we aren’t just talking money, we are also talking TIME….the most finite resource of all.

So keep reading below to find out some of awesome things we do for you to create an unforgettable experience

Session Options

We wanted to create a variety of experiences to help our clients get exactly what they want, while still enjoying a body positive, inclusive environment to ensure everyone leaves empowered, confidence, and with some epic imagery. That being said, everyone has different budgets, needs, and desires when it comes to their sessions.

We have separated THP Studios into 3 distinct “session” types: The THP Experience Session with Teri Hofford (the OG experience where THP Studios began!), Intimate Sessions with Liz or Ally (more affordable sessions & collections PLUS 2 different time lengths!), and Photo Therapy sessions with Teri Hofford (these are designed to be less “sexy” and more therapeutic in nature. Click on the Photo Therapy tab on the menu to learn more about those!)

A Killer Wardrobe

A concern that many people have when it comes to doing a session is not knowing what to wear. Well, thanks to my “collecting” habits, I have made sure to create an overwhelming closet of items that can help make your session magic. We have over 100 pieces of clothing in sizes ranging from XXS - 5XL and varying styles to accomodate a variety of different needs. When you book, we are also going to send your wardrobe GUIDE which provides the information for what we like to shoot in our studio and works well with our style. While I know many people think that all boudoir photographers are the same, that’s not the case for us. We pride ourselves on being artists and in order for us to create the work that drew you to us in the first place, we have certain guidelines in terms of wardrobe to make that possible. And if you are interested in letting us handle ALL the styling then we would totally be in for that as well!!

Consultations & Shoot Customization Questionnaire

Just as no 2 people are the same, nor should their session be! This is why we offer free consultations to our THP Experience clients and our THP Studios Shoot Customization Questionnaire to all clients to make sure we hit the nail on the head when it comes to giving you the session of your dreams. After photographing over 1000 people in the last 4 years, I have come to learn that A)people have a hard time telling me what they want and B)like to reference images to describe their ideas….from there, I have created a session customization tool to help us get on the same page - similar to how commercial photographers work with art directors, models, and make up artists. Though you are the client and we are your photographers, it is truly a team effort to create the magic we do, so the more we are on the same page, the better the results will be for everyone! With our consultations and info guides as well, we want to set every single possible expectation for what you can expect when you come in for a session, so we have alleviated that stress for you as well. The last thing we all want, is unseen “surprises”.

Professional Hair & Makeup

We work with some of the most talented makeup and hairstylists in Winnipeg and we have chosen them, not just because of their artistry, but also their commitment to creating a body positive and safe environment for our clients. While hair & makeup isn’t necessary for your session, it is complimentary with your session fee. If you desire it, we want to make sure you get taken care of and enjoy that time to yourself. At the end of the day, we want to enhance your fabulous assets and give you the luxury experience you deserve.

Posing

The number one concern people have when having their photos taken is that they are expected to know what to do. Well, worry no more, my friend.

WE are the professionals.

Not only are we going to tell you what to do, but we are going to show you as well. We pride ourselves on our amazing ability to give direction and most of the feedback we get is how much people appreciated being told exactly what to do to bring out their phenomenal personality. The only thing you have to do, is show up and put your trust in us to make you look and feel your best.

In Person Reveals

Once your amazing intimate experience is complete, we will book you in for your reveal 10-14 days later. We standardly conduct our reveals on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Standardly, we will present you with a gallery of 45-55 images in the form of a slideshow and then If you are from out of town, we will do a remote reveal utilizing the ZOOM.us app which allows us to screenshare! Once you have seen your slideshow, we will then work together to select your final image selections! Since all of our sessions and image collections are paid for BEFORE your reveal, the stress is lifted and you are able to show up, fall in love with yourself, and simply select the images for the collection you chose.
