Thank you!

This spring my husband and I will be adding another little one to our family! It has become very difficult to operate my business out of my home with a toddler, so I have decided to take an extended break starting November 2014. I am not sure at this time when I will start taking clients again or where I will set up a new studio. I just want to say a huge “THANK YOU!” to all of the wonderful clients I have had the privilege of working with over the years I have been in business!

Ms. T’s Siren Session – Ann Arbor Boudoir Photography

I apologize that it has been so long since my last blog post! I have been so busy this summer with sessions and preparing for our baby girl that I have put the blog on hold. I will hopefully be posting a lot more regularly now that the summer is coming to a close.

Ms. T decided to book a session to surprise her boyfriend for their anniversary. She was our first boudoir client to request an updo hairstyle and we absolutely loved the way it turned out with her beautiful bone structure. Check out the sweet note I received from her and some of my favorite images from her session below!

Hi Emily!

I want to thank you for such a wonderful boudoir experience! Everything from your detail-oriented nature… to your adaptability to personal desires… to your photography expertise… and warming personality… made my experience an unforgettable one. Your energy and enthusiasm for your work was contagious and your professionalism and little surprises here and there only contributed to your upstanding business and I would recommend you to anyone and everyone. I will forever cherish and treasure my products and I know my boyfriend will be in disbelief when he sees such flawless pictures that you helped create. Thank you again for just being you!

Behind the Scenes of the Boudoir Chic Birthday Party! – Ann Arbor Boudoir Photography

I want to start this post by saying a huge “THANK YOU” to everyone who came out to our party and made it a success!!! We had so much fun hanging out with all of you and showing you around the studio. Below are some behind the scenes images from the party. I was so busy talking to everyone at the party that I forgot to take pictures during, so you will have to use your imagination and fill the studio with gorgeous ladies and gents. : )

A few images of our gorgeous makeover model Emily while Chrystal prepped her hair. I wish I would have snapped a few pics of the makeup demo, but the room was too full and I didn’t want to disrupt while Chrystal was working her magic. ; P Check out Emily’s before and after . . . she was absolutely gorgeous to begin with, but she is a bombshell with professional hair and makeup!

Makeover Transformations – Ann Arbor Boudoir Photography

As women we are all fascinated with before and after pictures. Let’s face it . . . we love to see transformations.

I decided to start taking before photos of all of my clients to show them their transformations, because I wanted to prove to them that no matter what flaws they see when the look in the mirror they are truly beautiful and they can have magazine worthy photos. My fabulous makeup artist and hair stylist Chrystal Miller will be doing a live makeover at our upcoming Champagne Party open house. If you would like to experience what a pre-shoot makeover is like we encourage you to join us!

Ms. G’s Starlet Session – Ann Arbor Boudoir Photography

Ms. G contacted me last year to book a Starlet session as a sexy surprise gift for her boyfriend of 12 years. What she didn’t realize at that time was that she was also purchasing a gift for herself. Read the note about  Ms. G’s experience below and be sure to leave her some love in the comments! : )

I want to thank you for helping give my boyfriend “the present ever” according to him. I honestly do not know how I will top this year’s anniversary/birthday gifts. We shared the opening of the album together, then of course he had to share it with the world. Everyone loved the pictures and said it was tastefully done. Furthermore, I want to thank you for making me realize that I am far more sexier than I thought. I’ve never felt better about myself than I do right now. It was an amazing experience and I hope to do (this) with my boyfriend real soon.

Ms. G,
I’m so happy that you were able to surprise your man and blow him away with your sexy gift!!! You are so gorgeous, and I’m glad that this experience has helped you to feel more beautiful than ever! I can’t wait to do a couples session with you and your boyfriend in the future. We are going to have so much fun! : )

Mrs. M’s Starlet Session – Ann Arbor Boudoir Photography

I am so excited that Mrs. M graciously gave me permission to share her images on the blog! Mrs. M decided to do a session both for herself and her husband as a Christmas gift. She was so much fun to work with and you would never guess her age (shhh . . . over 60! Totally UNBELIEVABLE right!?!). Not only is she stunning, she also has such a genuinely sweet personality that I immediately had the feeling that we were good friends! : )

Mrs. M,

Thank you so much for allowing me to post your images! Your story truly touched Chrystal and I, and I’m so glad that you chose me to photograph you. You are so beautiful, and I am still pretty jealous of your amazing legs!!! ; P

March 23, 2012 - 6:22 pm Victoria–Washington Boudoir Photographer - I can't believe Ms. M is over 60, she looks amazing and you did a great job!

Happy Valentine’s Day! – Ann Arbor Boudoir Photography

Today is Boudoir Chic’s 2nd birthday! When I started my boudoir business back in February of 2010, I never dreamed it would have such a huge impact on my life and the lives of all of the women I photograph. Shooting boudoir has given me an opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and it has also increased my love for photography as an art form. I am so excited to have an opportunity to change the lives of another group of gorgeous women this year by building their confidence and showing them how stunning they are despite all of the flaws they see when they look in the mirror!

Thank you to all of the women who have inspired me and helped me grow over the past two years! I look forward to new boudoir adventures this year with more enthusiasm than ever!



February 15, 2012 - 8:47 am Victoria - Whidbey Island Boudoir Photographer - Happy birthday to your studio, I hope it was a great one and best of luck in the future!! BTW if you ever want to do guest post on my blog please let me know i'd love to do a link or interview exchange!
