I know we’re already a month into the new year but since I haven’t wished you a happy new year yet then let me be the 1000th person to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2011 was a great year for Brown-Eyed Girl with so many exciting firsts for me, THE most exciting of which was shooting photographs for the Winter issue of Where Women Create magazine. You can see some of the inside of the issue here. I was asked to travel to Houston to shoot the studio of Drew Emborsky, the Crochet Dude who turned out to be such a funny charming guy and I really enjoyed spending some of the afternoon with him and having the opportunity for shooting for one of my very favorite publications!
2011 was also full of various types of portrait photo sessions…….newborn, family, engagement, senior & my new favorite type of session, boudoir. I’ve had many of you contacting me lately asking about these types of sessions so I’ve created a new boudoir gallery on my website along w/information on them under the “New!!” section. Basically I shoot boudoir/hot mama sessions at the location of your choice which is typically your home, the home of a friend or family member or possibly even a hotel room you’ve rented for the day. We don’t need much room……just a chair, settee, sofa or bed and some pretty natural light. If we shoot the session in your home then it’s much easier for you to change outfits, freshen your makeup and feel comfortable and let me tell you that every single woman I’ve shot these types of sessions for go away from it having a GREAT time and always tell me how much they enjoyed the experience. It’s VERY empowering! In both of my boudoir packages you get all of the edited images from your online proofing gallery in high-resolution on a CD with full printing rights, this way you can make your own prints or use the images to make a book or other gifts for your significant other which is a lot of fun! Pricing for these sessions are $300 for up to 2 hours of shooting time, my travel to you, professional editing of your images, the CD of images and $50 in print credit to spend with me for pro prints of your favorite images. The price for that package with professional makeup application is $350 and I HIGHLY recommend having your makeup done because it’s amazing the difference that adding false eyelashes and playing up the eyes & lips makes. HUGE difference! Here are a few examples of these types of sessions that I’ve done but as I said, you can see more on my website…..
As you can see, they don’t need to be too risque’…….they can be sweet & demure or you can push the envelope a bit and go for hot & sexy, it’s all up to YOU!! If you would like to chat more about this type of session then please don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact form at the top of my blog or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you!
