Why Boudoir Photography
There’s many reasons why women choose to do boudoir photography:
- To use photographs as a gift for a significant other.
- Brides looking for a unique gift to surprise the groom.
- To celebrate a milestone - like a 30th, 40th or even 60th birthday.
- Mothers-to-be looking to document their pre-baby body.
- As a gift for a lover on Valentine Day!
- Or simply just to remind yourself that you’ve still got that sassy side in you. With all the daily tasks women face – life gets pretty hectic! I truly feel that every woman deserves to take a break from the hustle of life, be a little selfish, indulge and do something totally outside of your comfort zone!
What to Expect
I am thrilled that you are interested in boudoir photography! I like to think of it as an extended spa day – but better! A boudoir session is better because you get to take home images that remind you every day of how amazing you truly are! Overall I want to create images that you would be proud to blow up and hang on your bedroom wall. At every shoot, I strive to give you a good mix of tasteful and timeless with a few sexy scandalous photos sprinkled in as well. If at the end of our day together you feel powerful, feminine and sexy then I have succeeded in my job. I love the entire process of boudoir photography from beginning to end and enjoy assisting you every step of the way.
First I suggest that you browse through this blog, read reviews and check out my portfolio. Contact me with any and every question and idea you might have. Prepping for the big day: shopping, and gathering inspirational ideas leading up to the shoot! Feel free to reach out to me so we can get some ideas together. A great place to look for ideas is Pinterest.
Finally, it’s the day of the big shoot! I work with remarkable hair and make-up artists that are just as passionate as I am about making you feel confident and sexy during your shoot.
We have two different collection options. You may book a private session or we host a Boudoir Marathon once a year. Our most popular being in January, just in time for Valentine's Day!
During our Boudoir Marathon, you will spend 30 minutes with make-up and another 30 with hair. Then we’ll start on our session! After shooting for 45 minutes, we’ll view your images right then and there for your album! Congratulations – we finished the shoot! Everything I offer is ready to hang or display, whether it’s an album, canvas or metal art.
Our private boudoir sessions consist of professional hair and make-up along with a 2-hour private session.
One of the most frequently asked questions is "What should I wear?" Clients are constantly inquiring about what is "acceptable" boudoir attire. The answer is: whatever you want! Boudoir attire is all about what makes you feel sexy and confident. We have ladies bring in everything from classic black dresses to barely-there lace underwear. You can reveal as much or as little as you want. Classic boudoir attire typically includes items such as:
His favorite tie
Jersey from his favorite professional team
His work shirt
Don't forget a pop of color!
What about props, YES, please bring them too!
Firearms (please contact me beforehand so we can discuss handling firearms during the shoot)
Let’s make this as personalized as we can!
Our outdoor Boudoir sessions are held at a private ranch. We have a variety of backdrops with the convenience of total privacy. Wanting portraits with a truck, bike, or quad? No problem! With the open fields and gorgeous views, we can incorporate all types of props in your outdoor Boudoir session!
I’m nervous about this! What’s your advice?
Being nervous is totally normal but I promise nerves will melt away very soon! After 5 minutes of shooting you will see how fun and easy it is. We will only do what you are comfortable with.
Can I bring a friend to the photo shoot?
Please contact me beforehand to get any visitors approved. I will generally welcome female visitors, but let the guys stay at home.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, I offer payment plans on product ordering. I can split up your total into 2 or 4 payments. Keep in mind that I cannot place any orders until everything is paid in full.
How long will it take to see my photos?
We provide in-person viewings as a courtesy to our clients to help with the image and product selection. You will be able to view your images right after your session! If you would like additional time during another day a $50 fee will be applied. Orders must be made at the ordering session. Sample albums and other products will be available so you can see exactly what you will receive. Full payment is due before any products will be ordered. Your final products will be delivered between 3-6 weeks.
Can I get the CD of images?
While digital files are not included in your collection, they are available for purchase and start at $150 per digital file.
Products we offer
Choosing how you will present your boudoir photographs is one of the best parts of the whole boudoir experience! After your photo shoot, we will meet in person for the big reveal and look through all of your images. Once you’ve narrowed down your favorite images we will be able to decide what product is best for you.
Albums: Most of our albums are available in 8x8. Do you have a special note or favorite quote you would like to include? Let me know and we can add that to your album design! The pages are a sturdy photographic paper that lay-flat when open without any seam or gap to distract from your image.
Canvas & Metals: My favorite place to hang these breathtaking metal photographs is in the master bathroom or master bedroom. Fill that space above your bathtub with a beautiful image of yourself. Or maybe you’ve got the perfect blank wall in your bedroom waiting to be filled with a collage of canvas prints.
Prints: We offer a variety of paper and mounted prints. These are great for your partner to take on the go!
“The environment created by Kate and her hair/makeup ladies was one of comfort and fun. I, like most, was a tad bit nervous and self-conscious at first, but this really helped me to see myself in another light. The photos came out absolutely gorgeous! I had originally intended them to be a gift for my husband, which will most likely render him speechless, however it turned into an unexpected gift for myself as well by providing me with the understanding that there is no need to be self-conscious of my body. This was truly a most excellent experience!”
“I love them so much! I cried a little bit and could not stop looking at them. I love your work and it’s so easy to work with you! Thank you so much!”
“I loved my session today! Wonderful ladies and easy to be around, thank you for making it that much easier to feel comfortable.”
“The whole experience was amazing. Kate made me feel very comfortable and made sure the poses highlighted the things I wanted showcased. Definitely planning to do this again.”
“My husband absolutely loved the album! He was surprised. He was impressed by my courage and the quality of the photos and book. It made for a wonderful anniversary gift!”
“I was so nervous going into this (almost chickened out when I got to the hotel). So happy I went through withit. Kate was amazing and made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. Felt like a movie star getting to have someone do my makeup and hair. Thank you so much for a fun and exciting day!!!”
“It was a great experience! Kate is always very professional and has such talent! I too was nervous and of course self-conscience in general but ended up loving the photos and had a hard time even picking! The hair and make-up gals were great and made you feel super comfortable! Can't wait to see the finished product!”
