Thinking about boudoir??? payment options too!

So I thought I would post some information about the Boudoir sessions since I have recieved a few inquiries on what exactly it is....

What is it??

Boudoir – pronounced bŏo dwăawr comes from late 18th century French word and is translated as – a woman’s bedroom or a private sitting room. Boudoir photography, therefore, usually takes place in a setting such as a bedroom or a hotel room… an intimate setting to create classy images that can be soft, romantic, sexy and sensual. The main focus of a boudoir photographer is to capture you in the most flattering way by guiding you through the poses that compliment your body type.

Who should go for boudoir photography?

Well...anyone! Anyone that is a woman (over 18) can do boudoir session. I know the number one reason getting in the way of doing a boudoir session would go a little something like this... "I need to lose weight" ... " I don't have a perfect body" ....well I am here to tell you..... EVERYONE is beautiful. From size 0 to 50....we all have beauty in ourselves ...confidence is key...Really that is what you will be paying me's my job to make you look great in poses that are best for your body type and most flattering. There are so many ways other ways to capture beauty in your photo's than just standing there half naked....! On a more serious note...if your thinking of doing a boudoir session but not being completely happy with your body is getting in your way from booking...think again....they will turn out beautiful and you will absolutely love them (and so will your significant other :).

Now I know this is just after the holidays....when everyone has just spent their life savings on I want to make this affordable for everyone. I am going to require $100 deposit for your appointment. Another $100 is due the day of your session on the 30th and the remainder balance plus tax will be due before valentines day when you pick up your session package ! This will be a much easier way to keep a surprise for your loved one too!!!!!

This is going to be so much fun...and a win win situation for your valentine and you!!!! Let the pampering begin... Hair will be approximately 45 minutes ...and make up another 45 minutes. Then you will receive 45 minutes of shooting time. For the package details and what is included please email me at or call 253-861-1564.

Happy New Year ...Welcoming 2011 with excitement!

Welcome 2011! I have been itching to blog again!!! One of my new years goals for 2011!!!!! I just want to start off by saying how really thankful I am for all of you that have helped make Prissy Piggies Photography such a success this past year...I am truly blown away...I never in a million years would have thought I would be doing photography for a living if you would have asked me this a year ago...i would have laughed! It has truly been life changing....and couldn't ask for a better career....I really believe everything happens for a reason. I have met so many great people/clients/friends...people I feel like I have known my entire life! I get to witness true life and moments of new beginnings, brand new life, love and best of all laughter. I know most of you who know me well I always say i am I wouldn't trade this for anything... staying up until 3am just to finish a session because I am just too excited to stop is totally worth it! It's made me realize how precious moments really are with important it is to capture that...because in a flash anything can happen...and we all know our little loves grow WAY too fast! So thank you for such a wonderful year and your amazing support with my new adventure.....much love as always.

So onward to 2011...I have no idea where to start...I am just so excited and want to do so much this year! First of all I would like to welcome my new assistant Julie Heidal! She is amazing and I know you all will love her! She will be answering emails from the website, sending out contracts, setting up appointments, billing and ordering pictures and sending them out!!!!! I am so thrilled to have someone so eager to help and that is so positive with life in general...! I will post a bio about her next week!!! Can't wait!!!! This will allow things to get out in a timely manner and me to concentrate on growing my creativity and there is so much to learn in this business ...ALWAYS!!!

Speaking about up coming projects....these are some tentative idea's for mini sessions this you a sneak peek ahead:

End of January beginning of February
-boudoir valentine mini's
-vintage valentine for the kids

Tutu's and Ties/ Tea Party in the woods
Grandparents and Grandchildren
Tweens only!

Vintage Secret Garden boudoir (outdoor) (so excited about this I could pee my pants ...LOVE)
Vintage Fields for the kids

Family mini's

Winter: Christmas winter wonderland for family and kids (all tentative on snow in the mountains!)

While indulging on my time off I have been shopping/Antiquing ...I have added some great backgrounds and new props to my collection : including two of my favorite items found a cream tufted mini settee with wood carvings and an awesome tufted turquoise cane chair....with Victorian wood carvings...can you believe i found that on craigslist for $20....I about fell off my chair when i saw the listing...and looks brand new!!! Lots of new newborn items..and just received some items to photograph from NuxieMade and DaddyMackHats ...check out their shops...cute pictures to come featuring their products...exceptional gals and exceptional quality!

On another side note...for those of you who are familiar with the apple 365 challenge
that is circulating around first I thought I could not commit to this...then thought about what if i took a picture of my kids everyday? Finding the joy in the little things that we might often overlook because we are so busy these i am partaking in my own version... 361 Ethan and Boedy challenge! Being that I have a huge pile of scrapbooks that i KNOW i will NEVER get to ...this would be a great project to document life of them growing...and making a book at the end of the year...(which by the way I made some photo books for Christmas and by far was the best gift...we even ordered one for ourselves!)

Well...better get to bed~ First photo shoot of 2011 tomorrow morning and a crazy busy week ahead!!!! Good night!!!!! xoxo rachel

PS..Big surprise tomorrow...hint : "Pay it forward"
