Quality Not Quantity
For any of you gals who have ever gone power shopping, you know it can be exhausting! Imagine a hot dressing room, plenty of static, only a short period of time to try items because the next gal wants your room… your poor hair & makeup destroyed by flipping outfits on and off quickly, and sweating rapidly. Yikes! This does not sound relaxing! While many photographers offer “Marathons” or short 30 min sessions, we feel this is unrealistic if you are searching for quality images, we believe in quality not quantity. Our standard Collections allow 1 hour per outfit so you may relax and enjoy your “Boudoir Experience” like a day at the spa! C’est magnifique!
Hair & Makeup Magic
For the woman next door to the fashionista, we offer savvy professional hair & makeup services that will set your boudoir session aside from the others. Let us create a glamorous look from dramatic bomb shell to soft country chic. Our team of MAC artists will leave you speechless! It’s the perfect compliment to your “once in a lifetime” boudoir experience, including lash extension! Feel free to bring photo samples or sit back and relax our experts will doll you up! This is your time!
What to wear
We want to give you a excuse to go shopping! Where to find these sexy frocks you ask…If you wear lingerie regularly and are searching for something over the top may we suggest ~ for love & lemons.com, Adoreme.com, and Dollhouse Bettie.com. If lingerie is something new to you or you simply do not wear it often may we suggest ~ Amazon, TJ Maxx, Burlington & Kohls. For a slender appearance we recommend purchasing panties and stocking 1 sizes bigger so the material flows off your body instead of cutting into it. If you wish to emphasize your bust purchase your bra one cup size smaller ~ this gives the illusion of a larger breast. Perhaps a corset if you are long waisted or a baby doll to shadow your hips and waist. Vintage is the rave these days, perhaps a Merry widow body suit…oh and don’t forget garter belts, ladies. Lets focus on the positive ~ what do you love about yourself, because every woman has their favorite assets!
Your groom will most definitely appreciate & cherish this sexy surprise from his new sexy bride. Since brides and grooms often swap gifts boudoir photos are a wonderfully personal gift, and is incredibly intimate. What a sensuous way to kick off the honeymoon than sharing your sassy side with your groom? Consider setting a special time on the wedding night to exchange your gifts and create a unforgettable memory. Every woman deserves to see herself at her very best!
