I love this time of year!  Not only because it snows on my blog (which I still think is cool) but because of the spirit of the season.  The weather, for the most part, is awesome and the decorations always put me in the spirit of Christmas!

I just wanted to take a second to thank all of my clients and their support for this past year.  Each and every one of you have trusted me with your precious moments to capture them forever.  I have heard so many kind words about my work and I appreciate them all!  In the year to come I look forward to meeting many more clients, catching up with current clients and offering many more options to you.  As always, if there are any ideas you have or want me to offer any other products… please let me know!  I will do my best to fulfill your requests.

Please make sure to book any sessions by December 31st in order to lock in the 2010 prices!  This goes for weddings, engagement, bridal, boudoir, family, children, senior… you name it!  Thank you all for your continued support of my personal dream.  You cannot know how much it means to me that you appreciate my work and see the beauty that I do.  May all of you have a safe and happy Holiday Season.

Anti-bride

I love to surf the net and find all sorts of blogs that give me a new perspective.  I follow cooking ones, photography ones, wedding ones…. anything that catches my attention.  I stumbled upon an article the other day that mentioned a new iphone application called “anti-bride” and it perked my interest.  I downloaded it (for free) and looked around.  I think it’s so cool!  They say it’s “Tying the knot outside the box” and I think it’s a really cool site!  Nowadays every bride wants to be different, they don’t want to have the same wedding that their best friend just had… that wouldn’t be any fun and who wants 2nds???  If you are a bride to be and want some new ideas, check it out!  You can get the app on your iphone or just visit the blog  http://www.antibride.com/ they also facebook, tweet and myspace.  =)

The only other blog I wanted to share today is this one… I actually found if off the anti-bride blog.  Bridetide.com they have blogged about the 100 top wedding blogs.  If you want to know anything about weddings in a blog, check it out!   http://bridetide.blogspot.com/2010/01/top-100-wedding-blogs-and-twitters-to.html#budget I’ve only gotten through the first 20 or so and I’ve found all sorts of cool info!  One of the first ones that I clicked was http://www.greylikesweddings.com/ if you want to smile and then about cry watch the video posted on 11/24 it’s so sweet!

Ok, enough about weddings…  it’s the holidays and time to spend with family and I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope that each of you enjoy the time with family and friends.

Chris and Wendi were married October 9th in Ruston, LA at Windsong Farms.  This is a beautiful setting and we had so much fun!  Chris & Wendi love old cars and trucks…  it was only right that we took advantage of the old truck out front.  Chris’ uncle even brought over his cavalier for them to take pictures with.  Chris & Wendi, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!

Ok, so I’m the worst blogger in the world!  I know it’s been a while…  I’ve had quite a few weddings in the past few months and decided to just post them all together.  To see more of my work, please visit my site: www.mysouthernmemories.com Enjoy!

Ok ladies…you have thought about it long enough and time is going to run out if you don’t act soon! This is not about how you look posing half naked..It’s not about how you need to lose that extra 10 or 20 pounds or even about getting some color on that skin of yours. Who says you even have to take your clothes off? Someone just mentions “boudoir” and you immediately think nude!! Come on, personally I think a woman looks sexier covered up…its all about how you feel about yourself. It’s about confidence, your smile, a silhouette, your hair falling on your shoulder…the back of your neck…heck, even your FEET! Get yourself a pedicure, some really fabulous shoes and let your hair down….

So, I am wondering who gets more out of professional erotic photos– the men who receive them as a gift or the women who give it to their man? When a woman, who maybe has some body issues, gets to see herself as an erotic being, I’d imagine that gives her a new sense of confidence; in fact, some boudoir photographers say it does exactly that.

Sags, wrinkles, bags, cellulite- they can’t compete with lingerie, soft lighting, the right angle and perfect position with a come hither look. I can assure you will be pleased with the results… (so will he!)

We still have some sessions available. Friday January 23rd 6:30, Friday January 30th 8:30

 

1 hour session with 2 photographers, 5×5 professionally soft bound memory book, CD with your images & copyright release~ your cost is only $100.00

Every Woman is Beautiful

Everyday we see images of what beauty should look like. /l;56; The everyday woman is not a super model and we never will be… but we are beautiful!  Every woman should be empowered by how they look and feel.  Even if you don’t think that you are the most beautiful woman in the world… someone does.  We have a right to feel sexy no matter what size we wear, large or small, short or tall… Every woman is beautiful!

Ladies, do you have a special someone that you want to surprise with a sexy gift for valentine’s day?  Maybe for your wedding gift to your future husband?  Want to spice up your relationship and remind them what they have at home?  What ever the reason, I have a special event just for you!

Ok here are some answers to question you might have…. 

What is Boudoir Photography?
Boudoir Photography is a tasteful, classic, beautiful, sexy way for the modern woman to appreciate herself and her body.  Often these images are given as a gift to a significant other, but the gift you give yourself may be even more  valuable.
Do I have to undress and/or wear revealing clothes?
Absolutely NOT… Being sexy does not mean you have to be nude and/or dressed slutty. Being sexy means you being you in whatever makes you FEEL sexy. Or whatever you think he would love to see you in…for example: that cute little tank top and pj bottoms that you think is really cute…or his business shirt and tie with some really cute jeans…maybe its your wedding dress and veil that has been boxed up for a few years.. And it ‘ even have to be full body shots…. waist and/or neck up can be really glamorous to! 
Who are these images for?
They are for the bride who wants to give her groom the most unbelievable gift. They are for the wife and mother of 3 whose husband could use a reminder he married the sexiest woman on the planet. They are for the woman who wants to feel like a supermodel. They are for EVERY woman!
 

My Policy:

My Policy on Boudoir Images is no full nudity. I will never ask you to pose nude. I work with implied nudity only which means you are covered with either your clothing, your hands, or an object.  I view any nudes as extremely private in nature and will be between you and whomever you wish to share them with.

I’m interested…What’s Next?

If you are interested in booking a boudoir session please contact me to schedule a date!

Where is the session?

Typically I am an on-location photographer. This means I would come to you!  If you don’t want to use your home, arrange to use a friend’s home or better yet rent a hotel room.  I have had clients that get a group of friends together and they rent a room and make a night of it.  If you schedule more than 3 shoots in one day you’ll get a discount on yours.  

But  I don’t know how to pose!
Don’t worry, we will guide you through the poses and make sure you look fabulous in them all.

What if I’m not happy with my weight or shape? Should I wait?
No, you don’t need to wait at all.  Everyone has their own unique beauty, and that’s what I will bring out in these shoots. I will retouch the images in editing however, I will NOT alter your photos- They will be “enhanced” in a glamorous style.

How do I know he’ll like them?

Trust me, he’ll like them. Why wouldn’t he like his own private collection of photos of you looking sexy, classy and confident. He will love them! He is a man, trust me…if he enjoys a little sexy picture once in a while, shouldn’t it be YOU?

 

**OK so if you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.  I will be glad to answer any questions or concerns you may have.  

**for mature women only**     **NO NUDITY**
