Well helloooo! For 2018, not only are we freezing (I'm in Boston and have avoided going outside for 3 days), we're going through our OWN resolutions and changes. Since you've taken time to have us in your lives, I want you to be the first to know what is going on with us.
It's that time of year where we over here at OWN are brainstorming non-stop about what we need to let go, what we need to add, and how we can enhance your boudoir experience. For 2017 we saw our clients get creative with props, travel, wardrobe, their partners (hello couple's boudoir!), and ways to display the images from their session.
You guys also shared incredible stories with us. You shared your personal milestones, recent heartaches, monumental goals, Netflix binges, and awesome guilty pleasures (I've taken up a few of them as my own).
We listened to you....and we listened some more. All of this 'you talk and we listen' business has led us to plan out a few amazing changes for OWN in 2018!
Read below to find out more!
Change #1: COUPLE'S BOUDOIR!!!
While we've been dabbling in the world of couple's boudoir since OWN started in 2012, we've never fully made it an advertised option.
All of that is changing for 2018! As of January 1 we will be offering couple's boudoir as an option when booking your boudoir session. Clients can opt for a full couple's session or add a couple's option onto a solo-boudoir session.
Interested? Get in touch!
Change #2: Pricing adjustments
As of January 1, 2018 we will be increasing our session pricing as well as our a la carte pricing. If you're considering booking a session for 2018 we will be honoring 2017 prices until January 31, 2018. This means you can book your 2018 session at 2017 prices, even if that session is in December! This also applies to couple's boudoir!
Change #3: Personal Projects
It's no secret that I get to see a lot of skin. It's also no secret that the vast majority of us have some category of 'flaw' in our skin that we would like covered (read: photoshopped) when we see the final images from our boudoir sessions.
Scars are a huge part of so many of our lives. Be it emotional or physical scars, they are there.
For 2018 I'm starting a personal project, working title is "Scars of our OWN". I want to photograph your scars in a beautiful way. The scars you'd rather keep hidden, the scars you ACTIVELY hide, painful ones, joyful ones, new scars, and old scars. It may be painful for you, it may be freeing, I don't claim to predict the result and I don't know what the result of this project will be, but I'd love if you'd let me take a risk!
If you're willing to be photographed, get in touch and we can talk more about the project.
Email me or give me a call and we'll talk it over!
Change #4 (and final change!): Headshot offerings!
That's right guys, I'm finally officially offering headshots as a part of my photographic bookings. While we've had a tremendous increase in headshot requests this year, it's never been officially advertised as an offering. As of 2018 we are now offering the chance for you to be photographed beautifully and professionally – with your clothes ON.
This is a perfect way to update your look for your 2018 business goals, replace the image from 2012 that you regret, or to simply have a beautiful portrait of yourself to share.
Book your headshot today!
First of all, thank you so much for referring me out to your friends and family! In today's world we are so connected that it can seem like our friend in the UK is only a few seconds away (though they kind of are).
For 2018 we have a few travel dates set up already. If you know someone that is interested in their OWN session (with a referral kick-back of course) or if you'd like a change of scenery yourself, let's start planning.
Travel dates so far:
ALBANY, NY- 2/11-12/2018
ICELAND (for the 2nd time! Don't miss the most unique outdoor sessions ever)- 3/18-22/2018
