Big news! In addition to our luxury boudoir sessions at Hotel Duval, we are also offering studio sessions in the new Natural Light studio! Mrs. T. was our first maternity boudoir session to be taken at the new studio and she is absolutely stunning. She was so pleased with her results that she was more than happy to let us share her gorgeous session! Sneak peek below!

This isn’t a new session, but one from last year. She and I hadn’t chatted since that time, and she¬†dropped me a line tell me how happy she still was with her album of images and also to set up a time to come see me to catch up at the studio. I so rarely get to share, as you can see, so this was a special treat! I love showing this lady off! She was so natural in front of the camera. Can’t wait to work with her again!

I always enjoy working with a client from out of town. The suite at Hotel Duval really is a mini vacation then! Ms. G drove over from out of state for her She Boudoir experience and brought some rockin’ outfits with her. We even got to get ready in a different room than usual which had this awesome red wall to try out. I love the way the location and her outfit came together!

You know, over the last few years of doing these I’ve seen some gorgeous outfits, but this one takes the cake. Our latest She Boudoir client brought in her custom made corset and skirt that truly fit her like a glove. She topped it off with the coolest handmade burlesque mini top hat that she in fact makes herself! This session took place at our Midtown Tallahassee natural light studio and I just love the softness of the light that accentuates her entire ensemble. She was truly a joy to work with and hope one day she’ll bring me another unique look to photograph just for her!

Whenever I’m asked about my sessions I describe it as a spa day so I love it when my clients have a session done just for them to enjoy.¬† Taking a time out from everything and treating yourself. Ms. C scheduled a private boudoir session with us at Hotel Duval and did just that. After getting dolled up, we took our time and settled in for her gorgeous photo session. She brought a variety of pieces to wear which all came out absolutely beautiful, but as I explained to her at her consultation, I like to focus on the person rather than the outfits. These are beautiful portraits of a beautiful woman.

Thank you so much, Ms. C, for letting me share your gorgeous images! It was a pleasure working with you and I can’t wait to do it again!

Well I say Mrs. T, but technically she’s still Mrs. D! This lovely client of mine decided she wanted to give her husband to be something special as a wedding gift. She had intended to give it to him on their wedding day but absolutely could not wait to show him once she had that album in her hands! She emailed me immediately after showing him to tell me that he was totally and completely surprised and LOVED them. I’m so glad that I met this amazing lady! Her wedding is only weeks away and I just want to say again to her CONGRATULATIONS BEAUTIFUL WOMAN!

I cannot even describe what a pleasant and enjoyable experience working with Kira has been. She is so laid back and professional, five minutes with her and you feel like you have known her for years. I gave my fiance a book of my boudoir images for a wedding present… Needless to say he was completely blown away and speechless by this beautiful gift. This was such a self esteem booster and I will cherish these images for the rest of my life. This will not be my last boudoir session with Kira! If you are considering doing this do not hesitate, you will not regret it!

I’m so glad to have the opportunity to show off another beautiful session! While the majority of the sessions that we do are for just one person, this particular one was for two! Two best friends decided to spend the ultimate girls day out and get glammed over together for a double boudoir photo session! Both ladies arrived together and then spent the day chatting, helping each other choose outfits, and enjoying mimosas until I whisked one off to be photographed. They each wanted to do something to surprise their husbands for a special occasion. Here is Mrs. G in all of her glamorous elegance! She’s already shown them off to her husband (and her mom, and her friends) and I hear they were a big hit! Check out her testimonial below!

I admit that I had my reservations and fears about boudoir photography, but at a friend’s suggestion, I took the leap as an anniversary gift to my husband. The whole experience was so much fun and made me feel feminine and sexy again. I absolutely love my photos and I’m not embarrassed at all to show them off. Best of all, my husband was very surprised by the unique gift and loves them as much as I do.

 I was thrilled with Mrs. W. contacted me about doing her maternity session. She has had both a boudoir session prior to having her first child as well as a maternity session the first time she was pregnant. This pregnancy she was ready to combine them both! Mrs. W was a total trooper. I believe we had something like 4 outfit changes and lots of getting up and down on the floor, but she never once slowed down even though I know she has been ready for her little man to get here for weeks! She looked absolutely fabulous and enjoyed a little staycation at Hotel Duval with her hubby after her session. A perfect treat for a momma to be! Check out her gorgeous images below…

Some of you may have heard about the HUGE all inclusive wedding give away from Hotel Duval. I was honored to become a sponsor for such an event at my favorite Hotel! When I heard them announce this winners, Alana and Paul of Tallahassee, I couldn’t help but get emotional. Her whole family was there, everyone was crying, and this young couple could not look more excited! They so deserve this prize! Alana is an amazing and strong young woman. From my conversations with her during our session it’s overly apparent to me that Paul is already a fantastic and selfless partner to her. I encourage you to head over to the Weddings by Duval site and read their story. It is incredibly touching.

Did I mention that Alana’s images came out gorgeous?! This girl can WORK a camera! She is, of course, naturally stunning and after her make over and a few posing tips she turned into a regular super model! By the time her big day comes around she’s going to have been photographed so many times by so many of the top photographers in Tally, she’s going to feel like a celebrity! I’m happy to be a part of the paparazzi. Congratulations again to her and Paul!
