OUR VERSION OF BOUDOIR.
YOU'RE WORTH IT! Some things are just BLACK AND WHITE....
Read on and view some beautiful images that should perfectly depict what our vision of a modern and contemporary boudoir session should be...
We want these sessions to be a multitude of things. We want them to be empowering, beautiful, clean and timeless. We want them to be sexy but also something you'd show your grandma, or grandkids. To us, these images are more reminiscent of a magazine style photoshoot, with a bit of an editorial feel to them. These sessions are geared truly towards women empowering women. We want women to book these sessions FOR THEMSELVES. Sure its great if they also want to gift some of the prints to their man, but for them to do this for themselves first. To have a chance to see themselves on the cover of their own album, to get a chance to get glammed up and feel like old Hollywood ( picture images of Marilyn Monroe). Oh yeah, and all images are edited only in black and white, because it just feels right!
These sessions are for moms who need to re-charge their batteries and remind themselves that they exist outside of mumming. These sessions are for the woman who just endured a hard breakup who needs to feel they exist outside of that relationship. These sessions are for the women just finishing their education and celebrating who they are and wanting to exist outside of that classroom, starting anew. These sessions are for women just turning 30, 40, 50+++ and so on. Because they exist. Incase you didn't notice a theme, if you exist (which I believe you do if you're reading this) then these sessions are for you! If you're going to leave a legacy in your photos, why not let them be these?
Nervous? don't think this can be you?
We invite you to read on, read some of our testimonials from these clients and see how they felt leading up to their session, during their shoot and even afterwards when they got to view their images with us to select their favorites ( this last part has quickly become a client favorite, and its amazing getting to see these women look at themselves differently than they ever have before).
Blush is proudly offering these sessions to the great women of Buffalo and WNY area, including Rochester NY and we cannot wait to meet you. Don's hesitate to reach out and start a conversation! All of the details at the bottom of the page.
After you book....then what? Don't worry, we send you a full and comprehensive prep guide as we approach your scheduled session. It answers so many questions most women have, and some you didn't even know you had! These sessions are just truly meant to be fun, celebratory, comforting, and all the things that YOU NEED. Each of us women are unique, some of us need more encouragement than others, and some will just need a space to be themselves. We're here for it.
"I booked a Boudoir shoot with Blush Photography WNY because I am getting married this summer and wanted a fun wedding gift for my fiancé. Anyone that knows me would never expect me to do this. So naturally I got super nervous and anxious about my decision to book. I almost cancelled the night before but so glad I didnt. Christine and Elaine made me feel so comfortable the entire time. They made me feel empowered, sexy, beautiful and not important CONFIDENT. Being a mom of two I rarely do anything for myself, so I am so glad I did this. The best part is that the feeling didn't just go away after the photo shoot. I see myself in a whole different light". I now see my own beauty and I truly encourage any women, mom, boss babe to do this for yourself. Your significant other will thank you too!"
"I was really nervous leading up to the photo shoot with Blush. As soon as we got started though, I felt like an actual model! Christine and Elaine made me feel so comfortable and important! I went in not having a clue about how to be in front of a camera...but they gave me so much direction for poses that accentuated my assets so I didnt have to worry!
After the sessions when I had a chance to see my images for the first time I had such a hard time picking out my favorites and then picking which ones to print. I wanted them all!!!
I hate being in front of the camera and I'm about to post these as my profile picture on Facebook! Such an exciting experience that every woman should do, even if its for your eyes only! I'm already looking forward to doing this again with different looks."
"How I felt leading up to the session.... starving lol. I ate nothing that day except an avocado and drank tons of water. ( Ladies I realized that was so not necessary!)
I had so much fun with the boudoir session with Blush Photography, Christine and Elaine made it so great. I was super comfortable the entire time with them, and they even had it extra warm in the studio for me knowing that I tend to run cold. I loved that they had a large selection of clothing items to wear for the session ranging from sexy to simple and different levels of modesty. Elaine worked hard to help pick the perfect outfit for me!WE had so many good laughs during the session...giggling because I haven't arched my back like that since I was 10 yrs old. Christine was really organized with different planned poses and ways of how to place my fingers and covering every detail of every pose. It took all the guesswork out of it for me so that was such a relief.
Seeing the images in their slideshow later on was definitely shocking just because I couldn't believe how the simple little ways of how to pose makes such a difference in pictures! I would definitely do it again, I had so much fun!!
"I am literally obsessed with myself in these photos! Whenever I feel "less than", I will look at these pictures and be reminded of what a sexy, flirty, and powerful woman I am. This is what Christine captured with her lens! What I might have thought as awkward turned out to be some of my favorite poses. Christine knows her angles! Trust the process and let go and be free! Embrace your confidence and have fun. Sometimes y ou gotta look at yourself through another lens to see what is so obviously beautiful to others. What a body positive and empowering experience!"
"Christine (Blush Photography WNY)- I just wanted to reach out to you about my experience doing a boudoir session with you! I am so happy I decided to do this! Like most women, I lack lot of confidence and this turned out to be the boost I needed! I was nervous going into this but my nerves disappeared 2 poses in! I felt so comfortable and you made it so easy! I felt like a natural even though I have never had professional photos done before lol.
Seeing my photos for the first time, I was in shock! It was so strange seeing myself in pictures. Seeing myself in a different way that I normally would felt really great! Very empowering. I needed this for ME!!! Thank you so so much. Every woman deserves this!"
My experience with Christine was amazing to say the least. Leading up to the shoot I was slightly nervous because I've never done a shoot like this. And like most women, I had preconceived notions that I HAVE TO be and look a certain way to book a boudoir session. Not true! Christine went above and beyond with making me feel so confident, comfortable, and sexy! She guided me thru each pose and position making sure to accentuate my body with her amazing camera and posing skills, I left with such a confidence boost. The outcome of the photos were classy, elegant and beautiful and they exceeded my expectations. I definitely recommend Christine for your boudoir shoot!!"
For anybody that knows me I was like, ya sure I’ll do it for giggles, basically I’ll try anything once lol But as we scheduled an actual date it became more of a thought, many thoughts! 1. I have no business getting in front of the camera 2. This is not a good time, I literally weigh the most of my entire life! (Yes I blame Covid quarantine) 3. Why would I do this?
Then the day came, I wasn’t nervous at all ...I’m closer to the photographer, Christine, than almost anyone else in life. I was definitely body shaming myself, I definitely mentioned all the things to Christine and put my makeup on anyways.
What I didn’t expect was to not only like but actually Love some of my photos! I didn’t expect I’d be able to choose more than one or two shots I’d like to be honest. Christine definitely has educated herself to know exactly how to pose and where she needs to shoot in order to make everything perfect. The best part is any photos I didn’t like (there were only a few) never will see the light of day, deleted and gone period. I’m so glad I did this it gave me a different way to see myself. To give me a little boost of confidence I didn’t know I needed. It was good for the soul to do this just for me, I’m so glad I did 😍
We want you to feel pampered and the center of attention in all the most positive ways.
All boudoir sessions will include professional hair and makeup artistry prior to your shoot to really take your look to the next level. We plan for hair and makeup to take about an hour.
Included in our sessions is a pretty extensive client wardrobe ranging in sizes and coverage, from mens style button ups, to fishnets, to bodysuits and dresses (though its certainly not mandatory that you wear what we offer, its just an extra little service we have and can help take a little stress out of your session planning.)
Our sessions themselves last about 45-60 minutes and include about two outfits ( we recommend wearing something dark for our white backdrop and something light for the dark backdrop to really pop), along with some differently lighting techniques offering you plenty of variety. We've got an arsenal of poses up our sleeves to flatter and accentuate different body types and to take all of the guesswork out of anyones session. You'll be posed from the top of your head to your pointed toes, and even your fingers and face are shown what to do :)
Sessions packages start at $550, reach out today to get on our quickly filling schedule for 2021.
