Are you obsessed with Halloween? Do you decorate your house with all things Halloween? Do you wish you could keep those decorations up all year long? Do you actually keep those decorations up all year long and you don't care what anyone thinks? You are in good company! So many of my friends and clients are just like you! And our spooky boudoir sessions are right up your alley.
We have so many options when it comes to our boo-doir sessions every fall...our hair and makeup artist specializes in theater makeup, which gives us sooo many fun ways to shoot.
Glamour: We can do a regular glamour look for you, which is perfect if you prefer your boudoir album to be filled with mostly classic boudoir portraits - and we can shoot a set in a costume (of course you may choose those images to be in your album as well, but you could also just use that set for some add-on prints or wall art). A great choice for goddess type costumes, or Marilyn Monroe. This option is perfect for the first time boudoir client - especially if you are a little nervous about being in front of the camera. Dressing up in a Halloween costume is a perfect way to feel safe because you can just tell yourself this is all make believe. That it is not really you.
Creature Face: Our awesome artist can make your face up so you can reenact your wild self - whether you want to be a zombie, or a werewolf, a vampire, or a kitten - we can make it happen! This session is perfect for the hard core Halloween lover, especially if you have had a boudoir session in the past and you want to shake things up a bit. Creature face paint will limit what we can do as far as looks go - there probably won't be too many "traditional" boudoir images we can get for your album.
All-over Body Paint: This option can be so freaking awesome! Probably not for the feint of heart or super shy person, as you will be mostly nude, but the sky is the limit for what we can dream up!
We now have 2 studios - one is located downtown Colorado Springs, and the other is in West Plains, Missouri. Please specify your location as we have limited availability in each place. You may choose to shoot on our normal sets, we can add a few Halloween props, or we can make a large and intricate spooky themed set for you as well. Halloween brings out some wild and crazy ideas, so a shoot on location / outdoors is absolutely doable. Brainstorm some ideas - slasher movie characters in the woods, mermaids in a pond or pool, sexy lumberjack, a shipwrecked ghost looking for her lost love, moon goddess stirring a cauldron (smoke bombs, anyone?) ...I don't even know what else we could dream up! Tell me your ideas!
Now, just a little about me, in case you don't know who I am ...I have been a photographer in Colorado for over 25 years, and have photographed a ton of genres. None have fulfilled me personally as much as shooting boudoir has. I have witnessed women with every insecurity I could imagine, transform right in front of my eyes. They start out shy and closed in, and after a short time in front of my camera they have blossomed into radiant goddesses. I am so touched that clients trust me enough to share their most vulnerable selves with me. I feel a little bit like a therapist, and I love being able to provide a little healing in our short time together. Society puts some cruel chains on us women and I feel compelled to help as many as I can break free and empower themselves the best way I know how. Our self worth should not be tied to our dress size, or our hair length, or how full our lips are! Everybody needs to see how beautiful they are - and sometimes it takes them seeing themselves through someone else's eyes to make that happen.
So - here is some information on how our Halloween session works…** It is easiest to do all this on a phone call so you can tell me your vision, and I can answer all your questions as they come up.
First we need to choose your session type - the time it takes for hair and makeup varies at each level, and retainer fees are charged accordingly. Location also plays a part with scheduling - we can either do hair and makeup at the studio and then go to your location to shoot, or we could feasibly do hair and makeup on location depending on amenities.
What you get from me:
We do have many options for you to take home all your images that you have fallen in love with. Your retainer fee covers the session fee only. Images and albums are not included and are priced separately.
Send me an email with BOO-DOIR in the subject, and any questions you may have. Tell me what type of session you are wanting, then we can set up a phone consultation to go over any questions and pick your date. Once your date and time is set, I will send you a questionnaire and welcome email with tips for your photo shoot.
I can't wait to see what we can dream up!
