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...]

Outdoor Boudoir Photography just got SEXIER!

I am beyond excited to announce the NEXT BIG THING in outdoor boudoir photography, coming to you exclusively by Frances Photography, THE EDEN COLLECTION! A friend of mine recently invited me to visit a piece of property that he is managing outside just outside of Idaho Springs called Van Eden Ranch.  Besides being not to far from Denver (about 45 min away), this 300 acre stretch of land is one of the most gorgeous places I have ever seen in Colorado.  From the mossy forest, to the ponds, to the waterfalls, to the aspen groves, to the meadow, rock pile, and cliffs, this place is quite literally a photographer's dream come true. And I (yes, me) have been given EXCLUSIVE photographic access.  It's completely private property, and consists of totally untouched Colorado mountain brilliance at it's finest. One of the collection options I will be offering for next year will be "Eden in Amber" and it will only be available for two weeks during the peak of the fall.  I will be doing the … [Read more...]
