Boudoir Portrait Parties bring together your best girlfriends for affordable boudoir, fashion & glamour portraits taken in a relaxed, safe environment.
These sessions give everyone a custom portrait experience with Boudoir! Boudoir! Photography without the larger investment of a full custom session.
Boudoir Parties are great for women who:
* are on a budget but still want sexy, beautiful professional photos done of themselves.
* want a fun new way to celebrate “girls-night”.
* know someone who is having a birthday and/or bachelorette party.

Things to think about…
It’s All About the Fun of Being a Woman
Who doesn’t love to play dress-up? Bring back the fun of being a girl- get all dolled up, know you are gorgeous, play the vixen, or the super-model… just be YOU, smile and be a star. Encourage your girlfriends to treat themselves to feeling beautiful, sexy and confident. Get a make-over or do each other’s hair and make-up! Go shopping! Pick out the perfect fashion or pin-up outfit together. Get ready for a fun party of self-esteem boosting photo shoots!
Do I have to get undressed?
No! Portrait Parties are for you to dress up or down however you want. Think fashion shoot! It’s about having fun and feeling great about how you look when you see yourself through the eyes of a professional photographer. Your 20 minute mini-session is all about you. We can do a boudoir, but you don’t have to! Wear whatever you feel best in!
Tips for a Successful Host
- Have snacks (it keeps the little ones busy who are waiting for their turn). You can provide snacks yourself or do it potluck style have have everyone bring a little something to share.
- Schedule your guests’ sessions 20 min apart. Schedule them consecutively so there aren’t any gaps (i.e. 10, 10:20, 10:40, etc). Let your guests know they aren’t required to stay the whole time.
- Follow up with your guests with reminders
The only monies you are responsible for collecting is the initial fee ($200/guest). Please let guests know they may pay in cash or check. If guest want to order more prints, you can let them know they can order directly from us. And remember: As a hostess, you receive one 20 minute session complimentary along with an 8×10 Fine Art Print.
