So You Wanna give your Significant Other a boudoir album. Ive got some thoughts on this.
“OMG Im so excited! Its a gift for my spouse on our wedding day!”
Me: “AWESOME! Congrats!!!”
“Ya, and I figure I may have kids and my body wont always look this way?”
Me: Nodding (and recalling my own body at that age)
“Ya and I want to remember how I looked in this stage in my life”
Now were getting somewhere. It might feel like its a gift for you SO, BUT… if its SO much more.
Look ladies. Boudoir is fucking FUN.
So even if you start off planning on doing a session as gift for your wedding, or anniversary; EVERY SINGLE WOMAN IVE EVER PHOTOGRAPHED has said the same thing in the end:
“Really its more for me”.
And that aligns with what I preach around here.
Its your time, and you celebrating YOUR body as an artform – you are connecting with your divine feminine essence. Truly a gift you cannot possibly comprehend until you’ve done it.
BUT all that aside – it DOES make a great gift, and I was actually inspired to write this post because I was flipping through some old hard drives looking for some photos of my kids as babies (again… a whole other post about the importance of printed photographs) when I found these shots.
I dont shoot weddings much these days, but had to share, because I DO do boudoir, in my studio or in your home, and specialize in making books, albums and artwork to preserve the memory.
How to do a Boudoir Photoshoot and Make a Boudoir Album
Step 2. We craft a session around you, your energy, your intentions.
Step 3. My assistant and I style you and guide you through a glorious, empowering session.
Step 4. A few weeks later, you return to the studio where I have a predesigned album digitally created, and together we tweak it to design the perfect album for you. You choose cover materials, any signature messages to include, anc customizations to make this a truly memorable gift… no matter who its for.
Step 5. Approx 8 weeks later your album is delivered into your hands.
WARNING! You will feel emotional seeing yourself in print and this whole process is mildy addictive. You’ve been warned!
