It’s a day late, but I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day! Even back in my single days, I’ve always believed Valentine’s Day was more a day to celebrate love of all kinds- not just love for a significant other. So whether you’re single or in a relationship, I hope you all felt a little love yesterday!
I did a quick shoot of Charlotte yesterday for Brian’s Valentine card… oh, she makes me so happy. <3
Have you ever thought about doing a boudoir session as a gift for your special someone? Or even just as a fun gift for yourself? I know it can be a scary thought, but I have found that boudoir sessions have quite an empowering affect on the women I am photographing and as a photographer I feel so rewarded by that. Boudoir has become one of my favorite types of sessions to photograph because they offer me a way to help women feel especially beautiful. I love them and I want to shoot more of them!
Because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner (and so is the start of another wedding season!), I’m offering 25% off the normal rate for Boudoir Sessions booked between now and February 11th! The session must be scheduled to be photographed on or before April 6th. I have a limited number of session dates available, so email me soon if you’d like more information. This special expires end of day February 11th.
If you’re interested in a boudoir session, but feel a little scared of the idea, here are some words from previous boudoir clients who felt the same way and left the session feeling really great about the images we created together:
“I can be pretty modest so I was a little nervous about doing a boudoir shoot, but Heather made it the most fun experience! I had a great time at the shoot, and Heather helped bring out my sassy side for the shots. I was beyond thrilled with how the photos turned out and my husband LOVED them!” -M”
“It was a year ago since I did my boudoir session, but I can still remember how incredibly fun it was. I was of course nervous, because it can be intimidating to strut your stuff in front of a camera, but Heather made me feel so comfortable by giving me the confidence to enjoy myself. Throughout my session I felt relaxed, and really trusted her artistic direction. I loved that she worked with me to showcase certain assets which I knew my husband would enjoy, and when I would get nervous, or feel silly, she lightened up the mood so I could just have fun. I am so glad that I did a boudoir session… Looking back at those pictures from a year ago makes me smile, because they capture the moment in time before I became a Mrs.
Thank you Heather!! – K”
This has been a very long time coming, but today is finally the day I’m launching my brand new blog with a brand new look! I’m keeping my same logo (because I love it) but I wanted to give my overall blog and main site a major revamp and face lift. I loved the old aqua background, but I decided it was time to go a little fresher and cleaner with simple white. I love the way this makes the images really stand out and just gives my overall brand and web presence a cleaner, more modern feel. If you look around, you’ll see other changes, too, like better comment functionality, related posts for each and every post you view, post image previews at the top, and more sleek integration with my main portfolio site (which, by the way, will be launched very soon!) When I started designing this new space of mine, I knew I wanted it to feel fresher, and I knew I wanted a space that would really showcase the images and let them speak for themselves, and I really feel like we’ve accomplished that.
I say “we” because none of this would have been possible without the work of my awesome, talented, kind and patient programmer who made my design and vision really become reality – Peter Medina of Pete Medina Creative. He is so great and is a master of WordPress and all things code-related. It was very much a collaborative effort with many challenges along the way, and Peter was just fantastic at every step. If you need any programming/Wordpress work, no matter how custom, please contact him.
I’m so happy to finally be launching this new blog and hope you’ll find it fun and easy to browse! I hope you’ll take a few minutes to look around, leave a comment so I know you were here, and come back often as I have many posts I’ve been waiting to publish until this new blog was launched. Enjoy!
And because I was just editing this wedding I shot last weekend, I wanted to include a little sneak peek of a lovely, candid, First Look moment:
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
