A very quick post today.

Time to start thinking about booking a holiday boudoir session.

Time is tight for me today but I wanted to get it out there ASAP. Here’s a picture of my high tech planner. Availability is going to get tight as the holidays get closer so book your boudoir session now so you can relax and enjoy the season.

The days with squares around them? I’ll explain those in the coming days.

More to come very soon.

Miss B’s Virginia Beach Boudoir session.

It was her first time doing one and she had concerns. Everyone does at first.

Miss B had never done a boudoir session before so she had a lot of questions and doubts. She was unsure of herself and didn’t know what to expect. Because of this she was a bit nervous about doing one.

Sound familiar? It should as 75% of the people I work with have never had a professional photography session before, much less a boudoir session. Talk about going from a full stop to a sprint with no warm up in between.

There area slew of questions to be answered and fears to be calmed. That’s where a true professional photographer steps in. They answer all your questions without hesitation. They even answer the ones you haven’t thought of yet. They assure you with their portfolio, presence, and demeanor. They set up a plan with you to create art that flatters and inspire.

I have given several reasons why someone should consider doing a boudoir session in previous posts. As I move along in my own journey of being a boudoir photographer I’m learning that it all boils down to two main reasons:

Do it for you. Do it because it’s fun.

All the other reasons I can think of are derivatives of those two.

Miss B did. Within 10 minutes of starting she had visibly relaxed and truly began to enjoy herself. Several times during the session the camera was a foot away from her face and she didn’t even blink. Her power and confidence just flowed through the entire session. I’ll end this entry with her own words.

“I had an amazing experience! Mark gave me overall control on how I wanted the shoot to go and what happened to the images after. I felt completely comfortable and relaxed during our session. He gave me helpful tips and tricks for outfits, poses, and expressions. I definitely would shoot again with Mark.”

Kristin B’s boudoir session at the beach.

 

She was in Virginia Beach for a weekend and wanted new images for her businesses and her herself.

Kristin and I have a history. I’m not exaggerating when I say that she was instrumental in making who I am today as a portrait photographer. You can read about that here. She was in town recently and wanted new images done for a variety of reasons. That included, for the first time with me, boudoir images.

The catch was that they only time she was available was Sunday morning before 8am and it had to be done at her oceanfront hotel room.

Challenge accepted.

What makes me unique when it comes to boudoir.

I’m breaking the Golden Rule of blogging by talking about myself for a moment.

I was having lunch recently with a really great friend and we were talking about how to improve our online business presences. We were tossing ideas back and forth about the other’s site when she hit me with a doozy.

What exactly makes me different from the other boudoir photographers out there?

Kicking off the Holiday Season right.

Let’s do a Bewitching Halloween Boudoir Session.

Tis the season, my friends. No, not THAT season. I’m talking Halloween. A time where everyone can be who they want to be and add their own spin on it. And this season is a great reason to get a bewitching boudoir session in.

Angel, devil, superhero, witch, cartoon character, literary character,  et cetera. You name it, we can photograph it. Bring your Halloween costumes, or any sexy outfits you want, and come have a spooktacular time. We can photograph it here in studio or out on location.

The best part? You can do the session before going to a Halloween party. Get all done up, get your images done, and then head on out to the evening’s festivities. Two birds, one stone. Or you could opt for a stand alone session before things get hectic.

You could do a solo session, team up with your bffs, or do a session with your significant other. It’s all up to you.

Moving forward. Always moving forward.

New email address for inquiries and tis the season.

Today I’m proud to announce an email account just for this site. The mark(at)sensualphotosbymarkk.com account is now active and ready to be used. Drop me a line there to say hello, ask questions about a session, let me know it’s working, et cetera.

Stay tuned for more changes like page design to upgrade the overall viewer experience.

On a different note. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Time to think about a gift for yourself or for that special someone. I will be talking about this more in the coming days. Right now I’m just putting the idea in your head.

Well, that and I wanted a reason to use this amazing image from last season.
