Holiday Family Portraits: Memories That Last

As Fall approaches, we’re celebrating the importance of family togetherness with Holiday Family Portraits. We always knew that life can pass by us in just the blink of an eye. Since the pandemic however, I think it takes slowing down to truly treasure the time we have together. So, this year’s holiday is a little extra special for us as we reunite with our families and spend the holidays together.

“Memories made together last for a lifetime.”

Each family has its own unique traditions and ways of celebrating. But no matter how differently we celebrate, one thing remains consistent. Spending holidays with family is a special and important memory to create. To celebrate that memory, we’re including a beautiful ornament for Holiday Family Portraits sessions this season. We know this holiday deserves a special celebration. Preserving those memories together has never been more important.
 
As we head into September, take advantage of this special to create a memory that lasts a lifetime. Book your family photo session at $75 off and receive a beautiful complimentary ornament. 
We know how busy everyone’s schedules can be as we get closer to the new year. We’re preoccupied with shopping, traveling, gift-wrapping, cooking, events… traffic. In those weeks it’s hard to focus on much more than what’s in front of you.
 
Thankfully, time is on our side right NOW! Getting ahead of the game with family portraits will not only get you excited about the memories to come but cross one more thing off your to-do list. Let’s make the most of these calmer months by scheduling a stress-free photo session that the whole family will love.

3 Reasons Every Woman Deserves a Boudoir Shoot for Valentine’s Day

Tired of the same old Valentine’s Day? Looking for something fun and different? Try stepping out of your comfort zone.

You may think it’s a bit early to begin thinking about Valentine’s Day, but if you’ve been thinking about doing a boudoir photo shoot, then now is the perfect time to reserve your booking. Whether you’re going solo this Valentine’s Day or planning to spend it with someone special, a photoshoot is the perfect way to express the love you have. Boudoir sessions not only make wonderful gifts for someone you love, but they also are an amazing experience that gives the gift of self-expression and confidence.

A boudoir session is a powerful experience that every woman deserves to have and here, we offer three reasons why:

1. You’ll Fall in Love with Your Own Beauty

Contrary to what society tells us to believe, your body is beautiful the way it is. When you do a boudoir photo shoot, you get to own and define every curve of your body, and when you look at the beautiful outcome of the photos you will love the way it looks. It’s truly self-rewarding and you will fall in deeper love with the skin you’re in, gain confidence, and feel utterly gorgeous.

2. You Get Pampered

You do everything for everyone else all year long. Whether you’re a mother, significant other, or a female entrepreneur growing her career, you spend a lot of time putting yourself aside. A boudoir photoshoot is more than taking beautiful photos – it’s a luxurious experience that you’ll never forget. From getting your hair and makeup done to enjoying a glass of wine and relaxing, its hours you get all to yourself to simply enjoy.

3. A Gift of Sexy, Powerful Confidence

Valentine’s Day boudoir shoots are an opportunity to capture your body and spirit in a way that will stay with you for a lifetime well beyond the holiday. You can choose a boudoir shoot as a gift for yourself that will allow you to always look back on a moment when you felt empowered. You can also choose to give it as a gift to someone special who will enjoy seeing your confidence shine through. Remember, confidence is sexy and powerful and boudoir shoots are where you can uplift, reclaim, and celebrate your body.

Jewels – Luxury Fifty & Fearless Session

Often we reach an age where we look back in awe of how quickly life has passed us by, reflecting on all the experiences – wonderful and otherwise – that helped form us into who we are today. Our journey in this life is one worth celebrating and our Fifty & Fearless women will be the first to tell you that their photoshoot was a life-changing celebratory experience they will never forget.

Many women come to us unsure if they’ll feel comfortable and confident in front of my camera, but they quickly discover that their beauty and confidence has been inside of them the entire time.

Fifty & Fearless boudoir photoshoots are not just about being sexy. They’re about feeling empowered in your own skin and celebrating who you are. My recent photoshoot with Jewels was no exception to this.

“From the moment I spoke to Lori on the initial call, to walking out of her studio feeling like a Beautiful Magical Goddess, I put my insecurities aside and allowed myself to be captured fully self-expressed.” – Jewels

When I first met with Jewels, I immediately noticed how beautiful her hair was. Its various shades of gray, blonde, and brown complimented her personality and essence so perfectly. Seeing her self- confidence inspired me to consider letting my own hair grow out naturally. Still, in preparing for our session, Jewels confessed she had some insecurities, and together, we designed a session that she felt comfortable with and captured her full self-expression.

When I meet with clients for the first time during our consultation, I always ask about their life’s journey because I love seeing and hearing them talk about their adventures with such emotion and passion. I am always so honored at how comfortable my clients feel in opening up and expressing themselves. Women are truly remarkable, and as we manage through this pandemic, I am reminded now, more than ever, how strong, indestructible, and brave women are. We are mothers, best friends, and teachers of life. We feel deeply for one another and give so much of ourselves for others. There is so much wisdom in the hearts of women that deserves to be shared and celebrated.

“I am so proud of the photos and honored by the heart that can see the beauty in others from a lens behind her camera.” – Jewels

That’s why I absolutely love doing what I do. I lift women up and celebrate who they are. Every one of my clients has a “why” they’re doing a photoshoot. Sometimes it’s because it’s on their bucket list, but more often, women have a story they want – and deserve – to share.

Having photographed thousands of women over the years, I have truly seen how a boudoir session is more than just a photoshoot. It isn’t just about how pretty you are on the outside. It’s about everything you’ve lived through and all the places you’re going.

“This experience was well worth the wait for me to have the ability to capture who I am, but also allow me to see the masterpiece of my life, finally, fully self-expressed for all to see.” – Jewels
