Holiday boudoir sessions are upon us.

Tis the season to give that someone special something truly special.

Yes, my friends, it’s that time of year again. Time to hustle to and fro searching for that perfect gift for that special someone in your life or just for you. Let’s talk about the most personal gift one can give to another. The gift of you. Can you think of something else that would be more cherished and prized?

But I also would like to point out that this would be the perfect gift to give yourself.

Yes, you. Let’s be honest here. We’ve all seen that one thing that we’ve always wanted and just have to buy for ourselves. Why not give yourself a little something as a reward for doing everything you’ve done for others. As someone told me just yesterday, you can’t pour from an empty cup. So why not get this for yourself? You deserve it.

To those significant others out there reading this, here’s that perfect gift for her. A day of pampering followed by a boudoir session where they are the star and they literally get pictures for proof. Perfection all done up with a bow.

My boudoir sessions includes a pre-shoot consultation where we go over what to expect, what kind of images you’d like to do, et cetera. It also includes a professional hair and make up session before the shoot. Then we get to do the session itself where I give posing tips and suggestions to show you off like the star you are. Finally you will get the best images optimized for web viewing and an matted 11×14 print ready for framing.

It also has to be said that this is my last holiday season here in Virginia Beach as I am moving to Clearwater, Florida just before the big day. If you’ve ever thought of doing a session like this with me, this is the last chance you’ll probably get. Get it in now before it’s too late.

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.”

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.

Mrs C’s Virginia Beach fitness boudoir session.

Boudoir, in my mind, is a place where a woman can drop her mental and physical armor and just enjoy being a woman.

The best thing about doing what I do means I get to work with such a diverse group of people. I have yet had a “typical” boudoir session. Each of us is unique. We are perfectly, wonderfully, ourselves.

I’m not talking just about age, ethnicity, or size. I’m also taking about personalities. Which means, when combined with my desire to capture them simply being themselves, that no two sessions will ever be the same.

Miss H’s sensual boudoir session in Virginia Beach.

She wanted something special to give to her husband for their wedding anniversary.

Miss H found herself in a quandary. Her wedding anniversary was coming up and she was struggling for idea on what to get her other half. Nothing was standing out as a clear winner. She wanted something personal, that would mean something, and that her husband would cherish.

Then she hit upon the idea of a boudoir session.

She was intrigued with the idea as it would check off a lot of boxes. It would be personal, from her heart, it would be cherished, and it would be a chance to show off her hard work at the gym.
