Last week we announced that we will be launching a fun new division of The Boudoir Divas, called “Destination Boudoir™!” It combines our love for travel and our desire to bring the “Supermodel Experience™” to every woman who may not be able to travel to our San Diego boudoir studio. So we figured, what better place than Vegas (during WPPI) to bring our traveling act to you?! ;) We think all photographers need to get in front of the camera if they truly want to understand how their clients feel. I don’t think anyone understands what’s going through their clients’ minds until they actually experience it for themselves. If you are like us, you probably put so stinkin’ much into your business. You work in your pj’s half the time, you occasionally choose editing 10 more photos instead of combing your hair – hey, we’re not judging, we’ve been there. We get it. :) ALL Photographers/biz owners get it. So this year during WPPI, why not take advantage of the opportunity to refresh yourself (and your biz), from a new perspective. Feel what you clients feel. Experience the thrill and fun nervous energy that they experience before the shoot starts. Relax as you get glamified by our awesome hair & makeup artist. Enjoy the treasure of an art piece, just like your clients do. Book a shoot with us and do something that is ALL ABOUT YOU, and will have tremendously invigorating side effects for your business. YOU deserve to feel like a SUPERMODEL FOR A DAY™!
Want more information? Ready to book one of these limited spots? Email us ASAP: firstname.lastname@example.org
There are only a few shoots available in Vegas this year, on March 11 & 12, 2013. Shoots will be booked on a first-come basis, and we’ll just need a 1/3 deposit to reserve your spot. We cannot WAIT for these shoots! We’ve spent a lot of time collecting our ideas and inspiration for the shoot. Think James Bond, Adele, Mad Men, Zou Bisou Bisou, all wrapped into an awesome photo shoot where you can Reveal Your Sexy. Ahhhh we are so excited! We’d love to have you join us and be a part of this epic shoot.
*****UPDATE: Monday March 11 is FULLY BOOKED! As of this moment, we have just THREE spots available for Tuesday March 12, 2013. Email ASAP if you’re interested in one of these spots – they’ll be snatched up FAST! :) email@example.com
Hey everyone! As you already know, we have been in the Caribbean for our Supermodel Shoots… and we have been having an amazing time. We had some gorgeous clients fly here for their own shoots, and then we also had the opportunity to create a killer editorial boudoir shoot (more on that coming soon!)
I (Kimberlee) also wanted to mention that I have found my favorite new traveling companion… the Drop It Modern Hard Case. This baby is my new best friend and favorite carry-on. It fits perfectly under my seat on the airplane, and I am in love with how I can keep everything organized and compartmentalized in the case. It’s so sturdy, and fits a ton of stuff in it. It’s the most unique camera case I’ve seen out there, and it’s got such a cool vintage vibe. AND… Drop It Modern also just reduced the price on these babies, so you can save 40% on the case RIGHT NOW! This is a killer deal – so go grab yours today!
Signing off from the Caribbean…
xoxo, Kimberlee (and the rest of the Boudoir Divas team)
We cannot express how BLESSED we felt while we were in a pasture overlooking the ocean, horses running around us on a beautiful day. The whole team, even our dudes that were helping us were shrieking with delight. We were all overwhelmed by the beauty that surrounded us yesterday. November 3rd will be a day we will all remember the rest of our lives. As we process the images we wanted to leave you with a little teaser of what’s to come….
Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!! We are having the time of our lives! We are currently sitting in our gorgeous house in Puerto Rico, overlooking the rainforest, the hammock on the deck is swaying in the wind, and birds are chirping all around us. We are in love with this place. A couple days ago, we had the honor of shooting two beautiful women here for our Caribbean Supermodel shoots. Unfortunately hurricane Sandy caused some travel issues, and two of our clients weren’t able to make it out here for the shoots. We missed having Christine & Nicole with us, and it was hard knowing they were so bummed that they weren’t able to make it – but we are looking forward to having them join us for a shoot in CA soon.
We had an amazing time shooting Brittany & Suzanne – these women are both incredibly gorgeous, and they knew how to work it in front of the lens. We started with two awesome sets at our house, and then we spent a little time in Old San Juan, with fun, brightly-colored buildings. Then we ended our day shooting at the beach – because, hello, it’s the Caribbean. Here are just a few ‘teasers’ from our Caribbean Supermodel Shoots…
First up: Brittany!
And next we have the beautiful Suzanne…
We have to give a huge shout-out to our fabulous, amazing, spectacular, INSANELY awesome hair & makeup artist, Peggy Rogers! She is such an integral part of our team, and we are so happy that she was able to come with us on our Caribbean shoots to help glamify these ladies! And we can’t help but mention that we couldn’t do any of this without our team. We are incredibly blessed to work with such amazing people. Deena, you are our right-hand gal and we are so thankful that you were able to come on this trip with us. Thank you!!!
Aren’t these women BEAUTIFUL!?!?!?! We have SO many incredible images of them; it was hard to just choose a couple to show off here. Thank you, Suzanne & Brittany, for flying all the way to Puerto Rico for your shoots with us. We had such a wonderful time with you ladies! xoxo, K&M and the rest of the Diva Team
Early this year we released the new, updated, revised, re-written Boudoir Workshop in a Book – and we couldn’t be more proud of this book! Since the time the first edition was released way back in 2008, this book has received rave reviews. Thank you so much to all of you who have purchased the book and shared with us how much you love it! We love it too… but starting next week, this book will no longer be available for purchase separately. It will only be available when you get the Boudoir Biz in a Box. So if you’ve been thinking about getting this little beauty, now is the time! Go get it now!!!
The 2012 edition is updated with all of the new things that our business does on a daily basis. If you are looking to start shooting boudoir, or if you want to take your current boudoir business to the next level, THIS book will help you do just that. It’s an A to Z book covering absolutely everything about boudoir and how we set-up our boudoir studio. We talk about set design, marketing tips, post-production, and everything in between! What are you waiting for? In just a few more days, this book will no longer be available for purchase alone! (It will ONLY be available by purchasing the entire bundle – the “Boudoir Biz in a Box“).
We are getting ready to head out to the Caribbean to photograph some fabulous clients for “Supermodel Boudoir Shoots” as well as an Editorial shoot that we have been wanting to do for YEARS! But we wouldn’t be able to get the epic sunshine/sunset shots we want without epic equipment. So that’s why we got the Photoflex Triton Flash. It’s an incredible battery powered strobe and it won the HOT ONE Award this year! So you know we just had to have it. We are looking forward to showing off all the images from our Editorial. Wish us luck this one will be a doozie to pull of. Remote island and wild horses? No problem, we got this ;)
Photoflex wins a Hot One Award for Best Portable Flash. The Photoflex TritonFlash battery powered strobe packs a powerful punch of light for remote applications where AC power is unavailable. Rated at 300 watt-seconds with a guide number of 185 and up to 750 full-power flashes on a single charge, the TritonFlash operates in the power range of studio strobes. The lightweight battery pack (22 ounces) features the latest lithium ion technology and will power two TritonFlash heads simultaneously. The fast recycle mode allows bursts of up to seven shots per second. The kit comes with several accessories for location shooting, including an extra-small OctoDome SoftBox and a FlashFire wireless system.
Thank you so much Kellene, (KellieMae) for not only flying all the way to us to attend our boudoir workshop and have a photo shoot, but then taking the time to write about your experience. Your heartfelt honesty was incredibly touching and I think everyone who reads your story will not only be moved, but also identify with it in some way or another. I am sure you would all agree when I say that when someone is candid and vulnerable with their emotions and experiences, it can be healing for us, the reader, as well. So thank you Kellene for sharing with us.
Here are a few snippets from her blog post …
“I cannot put into words how much this experience has meant to me or has changed the way I feel about myself. For the first time in almost 4 years, I am looking at myself through different eyes, and realizing that I am STILL beautiful. The death of my son robbed me of so many things that I didn’t realize until just recently, and to be able to look at my images and not just see myself as a “failure” is such a weight lifted off my shoulders. God works in incredible ways, and I know that my journey has been preparing me to help other women like myself, who have self-blame, self-doubt, and low self-esteem. I’ve seen the gift I’ve given my clients as I’ve watched them in awe over their own images. I’ve heard them say things like “I’ve never felt that beautiful EVER!” If I can give just one woman hope, then I have done His work.
To now have experienced it for myself, I know what power it truly has on a person. Despite some negative responses I’ve received this week about my line of work, I’m choosing to take the high road. Because frankly, until you’ve experienced what women like myself have, you will never comprehend the power of hope that images like these can give you.”
“So, a HUGE thank you to Denna, and the rest of the FABULOUS Boudoir Divas; for teaching amazing techniques, and above all, for doing His work in changing the lives of women, desperate to find the beauty that God has granted them… because all women are beautiful and all women should celebrate it. The wounds that these images have healed in me are beyond words. I can now look in the mirror and not just see a mother of a dead son, or the scarred up body of a mother who has been through traumatic births, but as the beautiful person I am, DESPITE the journey I’ve been through. I feel empowered and beyond blessed for this experience that God has so graciously bestowed upon me. Cheers and blessings to The Boudoir Divas… you truly are doing the work of His hands!”
