“What IS it?”
Boudoir and Beauty photography is an absolute joy for me to shoot! All of us run through our lives so busy and in a constant state of a To-Do list we sometimes forget that it is important to save a little bit of ourselves FOR ourselves. With that in mind, that is really WHY these types of portraits are so special. Whether you choose the beauty path or the boudoir, we work together to ensure that these images are there for you now, in ten years and again in thirty. What woman doesn’t want to look back on photos of herself and really KNOW that she is gorgeous? That is what I do for my clients. We are taking just a little time in an afternoon to add to your legacy.
Whether you are twenty-two or seventy-two, I know that you are more than the sum of your parts. You are not your weight scale reading. You are not your grey hair. You are not your stretch marks. You are creative and loved, and meaningful. Let me show you. Let’s capture You, as you are, right now.
“What is the difference between Beauty and Boudoir photography?”
Think of it this way, beauty style portraits are portraits you’re comfortable sharing with friends and family and hanging on your living room wall. It can be you, you and your best friend, you and your Mom or sister(s). These sessions are great for Girl’s Days, mothers and daughters, holidays and birthdays.
Boudoir is a little more intimate. Literally defined boudoir are images taken in a woman’s private room/or bedroom and include intimate apparel (lingerie, robes, etc.). Many women find that the boudoir style sessions are not only engaging and empowering but also are amazing gifts for their significant others around the holidays, anniversaries or just as a great surprise!
There are only a few appointments left for this holiday legacy portrait event and they will be booked on a first come, first serve basis.. Professional hair and makeup, a little bubbly and a great time! Make it a Girl’s Day with your Mother, daughter, sister or BFF! Let’s have some fun ladies!
