Salem Oregon Boudoir Photographer | my friend on film

You may recognize my beautiful friend from a previous post. Her session was shot hybrid, meaning I used both digital and film cameras. The previous post showcased the digital images, while these are the film images. I love all of her images, but boy if the film images don’t just sing to me.

Salem Oregon Boudoir Photographer | just book your session already!

This is my friend. She booked and paid for a boudoir session last year. LAST. YEAR.
Then put off booking her session. To lose weight. To get more organized. To get her personal
life in order. Blah, blah, blah. When her session fee was about to expire (yes, almost a whole year later), she asked if she could put it towards a photo shoot of her kids. I said no. Not because I’m mean or because I lack understanding, but because I knew she NEEDED this session. ┬áSo, literally the last weekend before it expired, we did her session.
Without losing the weight, without getting organized, and without getting her
personal life 100% in order.
Her session was awesome, she loves the photos, and she feels GREAT about herself.
I’m sure you can imagine what she said, but I’ll tell you anyway. She said, “OMG, why
didn’t I do this sooner?!” So many clients say this after their session that I
just had to laugh when she said it.
So, the moral of the story is…If you’ve been thinking about a boudoir session, stop putting it off and just book it already! Who cares if you’re not at your ideal weight or if your schedule is crazy. Just do it! You won’t regret it. Plus, you can always book
another one when you have the perfect body and your life is
completely in order and no longer chaotic.

Portland Boudoir Photographer | Cozy Studio Session | Sneak Peek


Portland Oregon Boudoir Photographer | elegant pink lace dress

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… you do NOT have to wear lingerie or be nude for your boudoir session. I’ve taken boudoir portraits in women wearing dresses many times. It’s all about the attitude. Sexy is sexy, regardless of your attire.
This particular dress is one in my collection for clients to wear during their sessions, so if you are interested, just let me know and I’ll bring it with me to your session.
You may have seen these images recently at Whimsy Unveiled (click here to view that feature), but I thought I’d share them here on my blog too!
This session was a combination of digital and film, using a Canon 5DMII and a Canon EOS-3.

Trista is one of the most laid back, but fun girls I’ve ever encountered.
I had the pleasure of doing a second boudoir session for her recently and we had so much fun!
