Boudoir Photography is quickly becoming one of the most popular sessions in my studio–especially with my brides (and the grooms aren’t complaining either).
Whether traditional or optional, it is very common for the bride and groom to exchange gifts either right before or after the wedding. So what do you get each other? Great options for brides include something sentimental and representative of your lives together such as a framed picture or a note, or something beautiful for her to wear at the wedding…or on the honeymoon. The same options are great for a groom, too. But how about something a little unexpected that will really knock his socks off? A sexy, little best-seller he won’t want to put down? I’m talking about a Little Black Book album from your super-fun and sexy boudoir session! Whether delivered to the door of their getting ready room the day of the wedding or slipped into their hands as you exit your reception together, the Little Black Book Groom’s Gift Album is quite often a most unexpected and extremely pleasant surprise. It’s a fun and flirty way to get his heart racing with a little anticipation. Don’t let the “Groom’s gift” part fool you though…these little books are not just for newlyweds.
Oh, and by the way, it’s not just for him, either. Boudoir sessions are confidence builders. Women often come in feeling a bit stressed and self-conscious, but quickly learn that sexy is not in our clothing size…it’s in our attitudes and love of ourselves. Enjoy a session focused on you and discovering the sexy you might not know you possess. Most women come back to their image reveal and tell me that they never thought they could look the way they do in their pictures. It’s sort of a self-discovery or re-discovery of the person that can often be forgotten in our everyday lives.
Most brides plan a hair and makeup test a month or two out from their wedding to ensure everything will run smoothly on their big day. Since you’ll be glammed and looking gorgeous, it’s a great idea to put it all to good use and schedule your boudoir session that day, too. I also work with wonderful, professional hair and makeup artists who can doll you up right in the studio or at the salon, if that is your preference. Whether you’re going for a tousled girl-next door look, fine-art nude, or sexy pin-up, hair a makeup is a super-important part of the process. It helps to pull together your look and give you that polished appearance.
“I just need to lose 5 pounds first.” No you don’t! No one is perfect. You can love yourself without loving every little flaw. We all have them, but a sexy woman shines through with her confidence. I’m there to support you through it all with guided posing so you’re not left feeling awkward. And those tiny flaws you’re so worried about aren’t even noticiable with the right poses and gentle, professional image retouching. So, call your girlfriends and treat yourself to some shopping, put on a smile, and prepare to have some fun!
For a limited number of sessions I’m offering the Little Black Book album at Half Price to women willing to sign a model release allowing the images to be used on my website and in my marketing materials…all shapes, sizes and ages are welcome.
