Christmas and the Holidays

I am sure a lot of your holiday festivities have already kicked off at this point but I wanted to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas! I hope you all get to enjoy happy (and not stressful) family time and remember the reason for the season is spending time with those you love! Don’t let material things cloud the memories!

Christmas Reading

I have some other blog posts that I feel would be beneficial for you if you have some downtime during the holidays!

  • My good friend Gillian Becker wrote this blog post about Holiday eating last Christmas! By the way, she just launched her new company, Momshells, which is a weightless program.  Be sure to check it out for those New Year’s Goals.

  • Reason for the Season: Remember the reason for the season is family! Don’t get wrapped up in the material things! I would give anything to get one more holiday with my Grampy.
  • A Christmas Boudoir Session: And if you want to see some boudoir inspiration photos… here ya go!

Anyway…

Be present this holiday season! Live in the moment and really enjoy it this year. You never know how many you may have with your favorite relative or friend.

I know a few of you are probably about to get engaged, so congratulations early! I am so excited for you! Your ring is beautiful (aren’t they all though?). 🙂 Haha

2018 Christmas Boudoir Sessions

Yes I know.  It’s August, but 2018 Christmas is right around the corner.  Think about it- it’s really only 4 months.  If you want to have your album by Christmas, it’s time to get scheduled so you can miss the Christmas rush.

The Boudoir Photography Process

In all honesty, the boudoir photography session process takes anywhere from 6-12 weeks from start to finish. Let’s say we schedule your consult next week (August 12).  Then, at the consult we decide to schedule your actual session on August 27 in order to give you time to shop after hearing my outfit suggestions in person.  The following week(September 2,3) is Labor Day weekend so everyone is busy, so we schedule your ordering session on September 10.  At that time, we put your album together, then I have to retouch them and send them off to my lab, which can take 4-8 weeks depending on the album you choose.  So in all, although we started your session process August 12, it could be October 14 to November 11 before I’m able to deliver your album.

So 8-12 weeks after your initial consult, you would have the album in your hands.  Yes I can rush it once we get closer to Christmas if you are a last minute planner, but, heads up, there is a rush fee.  Save some money and stress for yourself by planning ahead!

2018 Christmas Gifts

I think a boudoir session is the perfect gift for 2018 Christmas.  It’s honestly a gift for you and a gift for him.  You get to feel like the most beautiful woman in the world for the day, which is a gift that you really remember long term  You get to be pampered with hair and makeup by my girls at The Blowout Bar.  He gets a gift of you looking absolutely gorgeous.

Albums

I have written about albums in a previous blog post that you can check out here. What I really want to talk about here though are the different album options I have.  There is honestly something for every budget, from smaller, more budget friendly albums, to the albums that I have imported and handmade from Italy.

Albums are where you will find the most value, so they are the most popular choice for gifts. A lot of the images from a boudoir session are those you would want to keep for your husbands eyes only as well, and are easier to hide away in an album.

Wall Portraits

Although these photos are for your husbands eyes only, I don’t want you to think you can’t have a wall portrait as well.  We will take some very classy photos of you during the session that will look amazing on your wall.  See the photo below. This wouldn’t be something you need to hide from kids or your parents when they come over!

Outdoor Boudoir Photos

Don’t rule out some super classy outdoor boudoir photos for your 2018 Christmas gifts! Fall will be the perfect time to photograph these sessions- not so hot your makeup melts off, and beautiful fall colors!
