Outdoor Boudoir Photography

Outdoor Boudoir Photography:  I have been photographing gorgeous, brave women in spectacular mountainous parts of Colorado for a couple of years now, but this photo shoot with the fabulous beauty, Evelyn, takes the cake.  Evelyn is a graphic designer from Northern California and had done a more typical boudoir session there that she wasn't in love with.  She started searching for different kinds of boudoir photography and stumbled upon my website.  We booked her shoot for 7 months out so that we could take advantage of the summer wildflowers and boy, did we hit it perfectly!  Besides being incredibly comfortable in her own skin, Evelyn was adventurous and more than willing to do some major off-roading to get to some locations that are not easy to get to.  We had a blast and the weather was incredible.  We had everything from sunshine to a soft cloud cover, to dark dramatic skies, to a little rain, and back to sunshine again.  Welcome to Colorado!  It made things a little interesting, … [Read more...]

Denver Boudoir Photography: It’s a Party!

Denver Boudoir Photography:  Who said a boudoir photo shoot is something you have to do all alone?  Not me!  I was recently asked to photograph 5 girlfriends that had gotten together in Denver to celebrate their fearless ring leader, the beautiful Bachelorette.  The ladies had a jam packed weekend of fun-filled activities including spa treatments, dinners out, dancing around town, and you guessed it- a boudoir party with yours truly. Since my studio was still in the process of being remodeled we booked a suite at Hotel Teatro in the heart of downtown, invited a make-up artist, and made it a whole "thing."  The champagne flowed, the tunes blasted, and the girls took turns getting dolled up.  In the connected room next door I did 30 minute mini-sessions with each girl privately.  Not that I would have cared if they wanted to watch each others sessions, but I made sure that they could have a privacy too.  Some of the girls were a little shyer than others, so it worked out perfectly to … [Read more...]

Denver Boudoir Photography: The Studio is OPEN!

Denver Boudoir Photography:  Words cannot express how thrilled I am to finally write this post!!  Almost one year ago, after much deliberation, I decided that it was time to create a space for my boudoir and portrait clients.  I looked at dozens of spaces all over Denver and ultimately decided to take on a massive home remodel project that was originally supposed to take approximately 3 months.  It took 8 and a half.  I lived in my basement while my home was literally torn apart from floor to ceiling and wall to wall. As an artist and photographer seriously addicted to color and more importantly, LIGHT, I cannot even begin to describe how dark those 8 months were for me.  I lived without a kitchen for about 6 of those months (you're welcome Starbucks) and figuratively climbed the walls while my house looked and felt like a construction zone from July of 2014 until very recently.  Between all of my doubt and worry, hope and determination, frustration and tears, stubborn dedication … [Read more...]

Outdoor Boudoir Photography: A little slice of Heaven

Outdoor Boudoir Photography:  There are several exciting new things happening inside of the boudoir umbrella of my business!  Firstly, the construction on my new boudoir studio that has been underway for the past 6 months is ALMOST done!  Which means starting in January 2015, I will have a gorgeous new space to photograph my boudoir clients.  Hotel fees will be a thing of the past and I will also be adding a make-up artist to my ranks so that I will be able to include professional hair and make-up services with all of my boudoir sessions.  Creating a fabulous new home studio has been something I have been dreaming about and working towards for the last 12 months and I am SO EXCITED to see it coming to fruition! Secondly, I am getting ready to unveil the "Eden Collections"- a series of outdoor boudoir options for adventurous clients that are looking for an "out of the box" experience.  Imagine being surrounded by pristine Colorado mountain beauty on 3000+ acres of private land about … [Read more...]

Denver Boudoir Photography: Classic American Beauty

Denver Boudoir Photography:  One of the questions I am always asked about my boudoir shoots is "How many images are included in your basic session?"  There are two answers.  First, the number of images I shoot in an hour, edited, is generally around 80-100/per hour.  Sometimes it's more and sometimes it less (depending on lots of things) and these are what I call the "proofs,"  which I deliver via an online gallery.  Secondly, I also include 5 high resolution retouched favorites available for download.  That means that 5 favorite images are taken a step beyond our customized processing and retouched a level further to enhance the image to my artistic preferences.  And then you own it.  Of course, I am happy to "finish" as many images as you choose, but 5 are included.   We also have options for purchasing individual images ,as well as the entire set on DVD, books, prints, and more. Here are the 5 (ok, 6) finished favorites from a recent boudoir shoot with a classic Colorado beauty.  … [Read more...]
