I can recognize my bias in saying this, but if there’s one thing to NOT pinch pennies over, it’s a boudoir session. If you know me, you know that nothing thrills me quite like a good sale or a lucky thrift find. If I don’t have to pay full price, why would I? If there’s a cheaper alternative with comparable quality, I’m all about it. But if I’m stripping down to my underwear in front of a camera, I am absolutely willing to shell out the money to make sure the experience is done right.
What does “done right?” mean? Simply, it means that you’re working with someone who knows what they’re doing, not just someone who got a camera for Christmas and is treating your most vulnerable moments as a side hustle for quick cash.
I know (from experience) how awful it is show up to a session unprepared, and then to be in your undies, with a camera in your face when the photographer asks you to “Just act natural!” No one photographs well when they’re nervous & stiff, and a $50 photographer likely doesn’t know how to gently direct you into the best poses & angles. The worst case scenario of prioritizing cost efficacy over experience is images that leave you feeling worse about your body than when you booked.
So now you know what to AVOID when searching for your kindred spirit boudoir photographer- but let’s talk about the magic of investing in yourself via a boudoir session.
If you’ve got a significant amount of money on the table for beautiful photos of yourself, your photos are better. I know there’s not a scientific explanation for this, but I believe that when you’re really allowing yourself to go all out, you take the time to prepare fully, knowing that you HAVE to show up for yourself (both physically arriving at the studio and being mentally engaged on the day of your session).
And when you choose to invest in transformation and beauty and an entire day completely dedicated to you feeling good, your life starts to shift in line with more of that beautiful, transformative pleasure. I’ve watched clients leave their boudoir sessions and go on to walk through their own personal renaissance, not because of anything I did, but because they made the decision to really show up for themselves and to back that decision with the energy of their money.
The more obvious magic to a professional boudoir session is that the experience reflects the investment. When you work with me you are getting a 90 minute session in front of my camera and beautiful images, but also
The way that most clients are able to afford a boudoir session is by taking advantage of our in-house payment plans. Payment plans are incredibly flexible and allow you to choose the frequency & the amount of the payments you’d like to make towards the purchase of your images without interest or credit checks. I truly believe every woman should do this at least once in her lifetime, and a payment plan is the easiest way to make it happen for almost any budget. If you can budget $250 a month towards a session, you can afford to work with me!
