If there is a biggest reason why I feel woman don't book boudoir shoots for themselves it's because in their head they need to lose that five pounds yet, tone those arms a bit more; they're bodies just aren't quite there yet. Well, this is me saying KNOCK IT OFF LADIES! You're beautiful just the way you are! Yeah, I know we all have those five pounds to lose and are more than aware of our own worst features (that we're most likely exaggerating), but this is your chance to see yourself in a new or different light. Being a woman rocks (for the most part)! And being a strong, confident, sexy woman rocks even harder! And if you don't come out of our boudoir session feeling even stronger and sexier, than I haven't done my job. I can promise you that throughout our session you will feel your confidence skyrocket - guaranteeing your photos to look amazing no matter your age, shape, or size! So document yourself as you are right now, beautiful.
Please notice how even though I cropped these images to protect my clients privacy, each one still promotes a feeling. Sexy, sensual, lighthearted or otherwise, I believe they're achieving their goal. So, if you're not comfortable with going completely nude that's just fine and know that you will still end up with a beautiful set of images! Honestly, some of my favorite shots from the shoot above are ones where she's completely covered - just the suggestion of the female body is enough to inspire!
make it a girls night!
I also offer a girls' night special! I call them Boudoir & Bubbly sessions. Get a group of girls together, get pampered, let's sip champagne, laugh a whole lot, and make some amazing images while we're at it! With being able to photograph multiple sessions, but in one day at one location, I'm able to give you and your girls a better deal too - bonus! Both one-on-one boudoir sessions and the Boudoir & Bubbly sessions include multiple looks and your own personal makeup and hair stylist to help create the look you're going for! Both sessions also include a private online gallery and a $35 print credit towards your album or prints! A one-on-one boudoir session with professional hair and makeup included is $395. Get a group of your closest girlfriends together for a Boudoir & Bubbly session and pay only $295/lady. The Boudoir & Bubbly sessions not only allow you to save a few bucks, but I also include a little craft service as well as a bottle of champagne! :) Please note that if you'd like to have your shoot outside your home, in a hotel room for example, (which you'll most likely want to do for a B&B session), the costs associated are your responsibility. If booking a room, ask if they have day-rate options to save a few bucks, or don't and enjoy the room for the night and have a good ol' fashioned sleepover. So, if you've ever thought about getting some intimate portraits for your man or significant other, thought about doing it for yourself (which happens no matter what because I know you'll be just as excited to have them as they will), or you just need the perfect excuse to get together with the girls, call me to set up a consultation to chat about your ideas!
Because remember, you're beautiful, just the way you are. Right now.
A big THANKS to the gorgeous girl pictured above for allowing me to share your images and for allowing me to help show you just how beautiful you are, I'm honored. xoxox
