As I sit here, homemade latte in hand, watching the spindrift snow outside my office window, I wonder how winter came upon us so swiftly. Apart from the promise of Chorizo & Sweet Potato Stuffing next week, I am cheered by the upcoming Boudoir season. Talk about a winter warm-up! And today I’m releasing details on my long-awaited 2015 Boudoir Mini Sessions, yippee!
But first of all, why Boudoir?
Because I believe every woman deserves gorgeous photographs of herself.
Boudoir sessions make a wonderful gift idea for yourself or another — oftentimes both! Although I completely understand the butterflies that may accompany this experience, I can assure you: each of my clients leaves her session feeling empowered & radiant.
For a peek into the Boudoir experience, including what to do about those pre-shoot butterflies, check out this blog post.

Additionally, you may have questions about how I process my images & where I stand on the issue of airbrushing. If you’re interested in booking a session, this post is a must-read!
And finally, here are a few heartfelt words from a 2014 Boudoir client. Thanks for sharing your experience, Kristen!
“When I decided to do a boudoir photo shoot, I was really nervous about what it would actually be like… ‘What was I going to wear? How would my hair and makeup look?’ All of those questions and more were running through my mind. I shared my pre-shoot questions with Bailey and she put me at ease right away! She shared a Pinterest board with me of ideas for what to wear and assured me that the professionals who would be there to do my hair and makeup would take care of the rest.
The morning of my shoot I arrived a few minutes early, and Bailey along with her hair and makeup team were already there. I was greeted with smiles, a mimosa, and a little Beyonce in the background! I had an hour to relax and enjoy my mimosa while the stylists worked their magic. The whole time everyone was so friendly and made me feel really comfortable – Bailey especially. By the time the photo shoot began, the nerves were gone!
Throughout the shoot Bailey made me feel empowered and even shared some of her own personal butterflies with me to help me feel at ease. If you are thinking about doing a boudoir photo shoot, I highly recommend having Bailey take your photos. She is truly genuine, and is amazing at what she does!”
