Boudoir, has become one of my favorite types of photography!! Why? It HELPS out EVERY woman who does it. It reminds us that we don't have to be societies idea of perfect to have our own gorgeous and sexy images. I have been so lucky to get to work with the sweetest and most beautiful ladies at my shoots! Every one of them are real women... hard working mothers, students and career women! Every lady is always so nervous coming into their shoot, but every lady always ROCKS it! Its always rewarding when the ladies ask me "Is that me?" when they see their photos! :) Thank you to my recent gorgeous Boudoir ladies for the fabulous day and thanks for allowing me share some of your fabulous images!!!
The beautiful Miss M, has some wonderful friends! Her best friend contacted me a few months earlier and wanted to set up a photoshoot as a gift to Miss M and as a part of her Bachlorette weekend. I thought this was such a fun and fantastic idea. Such a lucky lady to have such caring and thoughtful friends, to make such elaborate plans months in advance for her special day. Good on you!! J
Miss M rocked the photoshoot as a photo natural! Beautiful and confident and new just what she wanted for photos, as she plans to give them as a gift to her fiancé, on their wedding day. She was so hyped up for our shoot and had many great ideas of her own, from simple beauty to much more racy, (we’ll just let her keep those ones). I loved working with her and just hanging out with the girls. I was actually the one to end the shoot, stating we had MANY great shots…. That never usually happens! I loved it! Hahaha
I hope the whole weekend went as well as our evening shoot and good luck to the beautiful Miss M and her fiancé on their August wedding day!
The lovely Miss T.. well now a Mrs T, contacted me to do some hot boudoir portraits as a gift to give to her husband on their wedding night. ( I had to keep these under wraps until now, post wedding) So I am very excited to share. I was sooo very happy to help her out with this, as Mrs T is such a kind hearted, sweet and innocent looking, beautiful lady. ( Personality to match!) I could not wait to bring out her smoldering, sexy side and I think this was accomplished while still keeping her own sweet personality shining through! We had such a blast and so many giggles! I hope the Mr enjoyed his gift. I now cannot wait to post their wedding photos.. now that was a fun day! Thanks Mrs T for allowing me to share these photos!

**Christmas Boudoir Marathon**
November 26, 2011
What is a Boudoir marathon??
Hearing “Marathon” can be intimidating.. But all it really means is many consecutive photo shoots in one day in one location. Having the photo shoots consecutive, allows me to offer a on location professional setting with make-up artist/ hairstylist, offered for much cheaper than individual sessions.
You bring the outfits you would like to wear… and they do not necessarily need to be lingerie, can be your husband’s/ boyfriend’s shirt… a nice skirt /shirt combo….or even your flannel pajamas.. Depends on the look you are going for.
Any woman, any size, shape or age (over 19) should experience a classy glamour session like this. I promise you will feel more sexy and beautiful then ever by the end of your shoot! If you have any concern areas, you just let me know and I will be sure to help you with posing to hide your concern areas.
What will you get with the Boudoir Marathon??
*A one on one consultation, before the shoot, at your convenience. We will go over any questions you may have
*You will be warmly greeted and shown around, also offered snacks and a glass of wine or champagne (might help calm the nerves) and meet our make-up artist /hairstylist. She will then go over what look you may be going for and what she thinks would be camera perfect. After you have been beautified you will join me in a private room, one on one, where we go over outfits and posing…Then let the super modeling begin!
*On location shoot in a luxury suite at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel
*One hour of photography time with the photographer, Me :)
*As many outfit changes as you wish (2-3 outfits are usually perfect)
*All of your Edited images on dvd- Hi-Resolution Jpeg (approx 30-40 images)

Q: Who gets boudoir images done?
Anyone who wants beautiful images made for themselves or someone special. Gifts for Valentine’s Day, the wedding day, anniversaries. Other reasons include milestone birthdays and weight loss or other body improvement celebrations.
Q: Who will photograph my session?
All boudoir sessions are photographed by myself (Rayven) no one else will be present in the shooting area. Most people are worried about posing, but I will completely direct you. Please let me know any specific ideas you have for your photo shoot. You do not need to pose like a model (unless you want to!)
Q: I’m nervous......?
It is normal for most people to feel nervous before and when they first arrive. Spending time getting your makeover should help calm your nerves. By the end of the session everyone says how much fun they had and how much more comfortable it was than they thought it would be. We also provide a glass of champagne to “unwind” before the shoot, but you don’t have to have it if you don’t want to.
Q: Will others see me during the session?
No one other than the photographer will see you. The shooting area is concealed from view of the makeup area and washroom. You will use the washroom to change, but in between, you can wear the robe that is provided or bring your own.
Q: Will you post my images on the Internet?
I respect the privacy of my clients and I will only display images on the web that have been approved by the client.
Q: Should I bring props?
Props can make your images special and more fun and personalized. Some ideas include flowers, cowboy hat, motorcycle helmet, birdcage veil, and props relating to your partner’s profession or your personal interests.
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
All deposits are non-refundable, no exceptions. In case of an emergency or illness if you are not able to make your session we can transfer your payment to any future marathon date. Due to the scheduled nature of the marathons we are unable to offer refunds for no-shows.
Q: What if I am not as skinny as I want to be?
You are beautiful the way you are. My job as a photographer is to emphasize the positives and minimize any areas that you are self-conscious about. When you receive your images I hope that you will see yourself as beautiful and perfect just the way you are!
