July 10th, 2011 at 4pm | $195 session fee
This month's boudoir marathon filled up pretty quickly (as did the waiting list), so I added a July boudoir marathon date, and it's got ONE spot left! Another exciting day full of very sexy fun; the makeup artist, glass of bubbly, maybe a few pearls, some sexy music, a beautiful and private location.. it is ALL waiting for YOU. It's the perfect time and place for you to feel beautiful and empowered... and leave HIM speechless.
Same fabulous location: A gorgeous 1904 English Tudor Mansion in the hills of NW Portland.
Sure, these sessions are designed with gifts for your significant other in mind. However, do it for them, but do it for YOU too!
"Instead of hating our bodies, lets celebrate them."
What is Boudoir?
Boudoir is a french term that means 'bedroom'. A bedroom is typically the #1 intimate spot to take these types of images in. So instead of using an uncomfortable studio with tons of fake props, we're using a modern and intimate bedroom in a mansion near downtown Portland.
What is a Boudoir Marathon?
A marathon is a day or weekend where multiple sessions are scheduled. This way we can have an awesome location, professional make-up-artist, at the most affordable price for you!
Who gets Boudoir pictures done?
Anyone! Boudoir is becoming more and more popular. Lots of women like to get them done for the men in their lives. Whether its a birthday, holiday, wedding gift, or anniversary or 'just to make you smile' gift! I strongly encourage anyone to participate in a boudoir session for themselves, as a boost of self confidence. Any size, shape, color, personality, just remember that you are fabulous!
During the shoot it is you, me, the camera and the make-up artist. You're welcome to bring one friend, but space does not allow for more in the shooting room.
What if I am uncomfortable with my body, and do your retouch? First of all, you are beautiful. Secondly, my job is to emphasize the positives and to minimize the areas you feel are less than perfect. When necessary, I do retouch images. Before your session, we will have a complimentary consultation where you'll tell me what areas you are more confident with and what areas you are less than comfortable with. If you have question or concerns about retouching let me know.
Do you do nude photography?
Boudoir sessions normally would be "implied nude" at most.. but if you are interested in being completely nude in your images, just let me know ahead of your session.
Do you supply clothing or what should I bring?
No, I do not supply clothing. I'm going to bring a few accessories, but the rest is on you! One thing I want to make sure people are not confused about is that this is not the 80-90's version of boudoir. This is classy, modern, sexy, beautiful boudoir. Bring 2 or 3 outfits. Popular choices (aside from the bubbles, towels and sheets provided at the location) are: lingerie, tight jeans, cute tee shirts, baby doll dresses, chemise, corsets, garters, thigh highs, fishnets, sports jerseys, men's dress shirts and ties, bra/panty sets, thongs/g-strings/sexy boy shorts, heels and fun jewelry.
These are just examples.. bring whatever you want to wear, but please try them on before your session. We want these images to represent YOU and whatever makes YOU comfortable. One thing I do encourage is to stay away from busy patterns. Solid colors are more flattering..but feel free to have fun with the color!
