2015 Boudoir Mini Sessions

December 9, 2014

I’m extremely excited to announce that in early January I am hosting my second annual Boudoir Mini Sessions! Last year, I offered it privately to my brides, past and present, and it was so successful, I knew I had to open it up to the public this time around, just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Are you getting married soon? Is your man’s birthday just around the corner? Don’t forget about Valendtine’s Day! Give yourself the pampering YOU deserve and your man a gift that he will absolutely LOVE! A custom designed, handmade 4×4 black photo album from your boudoir mini-session! If you are getting married this year, this is an awesome gift you can give you husband on your wedding day! I’ve done boudoir photo-shoots in the past, but have never posted any online, due to the nature of the photo-shoots.

So I’m super excited to be able to offer these special discounts for a two-day only mini-session marathon in Paducah Kentucky! Come enjoy a day of fun, get your hair & makeup professionally done, enjoy wine and snacks, and walk away with some amazing photos that you (and your man) will cherish forever!

Spots are very limited and will be booked on a first come/first serve basis. Sessions are limited to one subject per mini session (women only). Full amount is due up front in order to reserve your boudoir mini session.


Q) What is a boudoir mini-session?

A) A boudoir mini session is a half hour portrait session booked on a select weekend. The cost is significantly lower since I book multiple portrait sessions all in one weekend. You book a time slot for your portrait session, and if you opt for a hair & makeup time slot, you arrive 1 1/2 hours prior. This year’s portrait location will be disclosed once you’ve reserved your time slot.. Bookings can be scheduled between 8:00 am and 3:30 pm on the selected day. On location, there will be one hair stylist and one makeup artist, and me, of course. Wine & hor d’ouvrves will be provided as well. Choose your favorite lingerie for the shoot, 2 outfits allowed for the half-hour session. If you have any questions or can’t decide on your outfit selections show up a bit early with some options so we can help you out. You can even book your session back to back with some of your friends then have a girls night out after your photo-session. You will already look awesome with your hair & makeup done, so it’s a great time to go out!

Boudoir photography is a great gift to yourself and your loved one. We get busy in our day to day lives and forget what it’s like sometimes to get dolled up and feel beautiful. A boudoir session pampers you and let’s you truly feel like the beautiful person you are. We jam out to some good tunes, and keep it fun, no full nudity – I do my best in every boudoir portrait session to give a classic, elegant feel to the photographs, and make sure you feel comfortable and enjoy yourself during the photo-shoot.

Q) Tell me more about this 4×4 little black album!
A) After your session you will be able to view/select your top 15 photos from your online (password-protected) gallery to be included in your album. Included in the mini session fee is a 4×4, lay-flat, black linen covered album. Additional prints or products may be ordered directly from your gallery PLUS album upgrades are available!

Q) How should I arrive for my shoot? What should I all bring?

A) Once you book your time slot, I will email you an info email full of tips on how to prep for your shoot, what to bring and how to arrive. Since you’re already here reading this I’ll sum it up . Bring 1-3 outfits, arrive with a clean face/hair down and get a good nights sleep and drink lots of water leading up to the shoot.

Q) What is the location like?
A) The location is a swanky, rustic, and romantic condo in downtown Paducah. Specific location information will be disclosed after you’ve reserved your time slot.

Q) Will my photos be shown on your website or kept private?
A) I never post images from a boudoir portrait session due to the family friendly content of my website and blog. I understand that because of the nature of the photography, it’s something most women like to keep between them and their man.
