“Beauty isn’t about having a pretty face, it’s about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart and a pretty soul”. Drake

I thought I would bring you some tips today for planning  and getting ready for your boudoir portrait session.

  1. Be sure to pamper yourself in the week ahead of your session.  Make sure to have a fresh haircut and color at least two weeks ahead.  A manicure and pedicure a day or two ahead is nice…. remember to wear loose clothing to the session location, nothing too tight or that might leave marks on your skin.
  2.  Bring more outfits than you think you will use!  It is fun to use your significant others’s work shirt, or a dress shirt and tie, his favorite sports team shirt… lingerie, of course!  Don’t forget a simple bra and panties, even a loose sweater to pull off your shoulders, and a satin robe.  There is a wide variety of clothing to wear in a boudoir session.
  3. Definitely pack your accessories!  Heels, stockings, jewelry, hair and makeup supplies (if you’re doing your own).  Hats, gloves, flowers, pets, anything can be a prop as long as it means something to the two of you!

Your boudoir session can be fun and flirty or serious and sensuous.  I love to empower women and help them see themselves as their loved ones see them.  To quote Drake “Beauty isn’t about having a pretty face.  It’s about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart and a pretty soul.  I love this quote!  To me it fits perfectly with why I do boudoir images.  To show you the beauty within along with the beauty on the outside.

Give me a call and we can meet for a private no charge consultation.  We will talk about all aspects of the boudoir session.              CarolFlirt logo

Shoot for the Moon Photography Classes are back!

You may or may not know that I teach photography classes.  From the very beginning basic class to an all day safari type Extravaganza class, I offer it all!  I’ve attached the brochures so that you can see.  I love photography so much, and just want to help people who wish to record their personal memories and keep them safe to enjoy for many years to come…  Before I gush some more and it gets messy in here, I’ll be on my way.  Keep me in mind if you decide you need to take your personal photography to the next level, or pass this on to someone you know who might enjoy it!  Thanks!
