Today’s Hot Mama is Ms. J – my fabulous client that came to Houston for her boudoir photography from Dallas, just to work with me! Matter of fact, she was part of the inspiration for the 2012 Boudoir Photography Tour, and I have plans to add Dallas to the tour list this fall! She planned a nice weekend getaway at Hotel Derek and she asked if we could do her session at her hotel. Absolutely! We wanted her to relax and enjoy it ALL! So Jennifer Aronson headed there to do her makeup, Chad from Roots the Salon did her hair, and then I did her super fun session!
While her Boudoir photography session in Houston was ultimately for herself, her sweetheart had a birthday coming up so she went to Sprinkles (My FAVORITE!) to get cupcakes for her session to use as a prop. She was kind and shared one with me afterwards – that was how I discovered just how amazing Sprinkles cupcakes are! (Gluten free red velvet are the BEST!)
You know that sexy face that you make in the mirror when you know you look DAMN GOOOOOOOD… well, I caught Ms. J making it in the mirror in the photo below on the right. Love it!
When I saw the title of the book she had been reading as she relaxed in bed the night before … well, how could I resist?
Her Boudoir Photography Review
I always make sure that I get a photograph or two that you can use for your Facebook or Twitter profile photograph, and the one below is one of my favorites! The note here is what Ms. J sent to me the day after Houston Boudoir photography photos were ready to review:
Thank you so much for making this such a positive experience for me it was just what I needed. Jennifer and Chad started my day out right and made me feel truly beautiful. After I saw a couple of the pictures I became a true believer in your “super power”! To my surprise, I was not nervous at all, and as soon as you arrived I felt comfortable. You were beyond professional, but so much fun at the same time…..I will never forget “brown chicken…brown cow”. Although I am not local….you were more than worth the trip and I am telling everyone about you. I think I have a client for you if you ever make that trip to Dallas! Thank you a million times over!!!
I’m sure you can imagine how AWESOME it is to get notes like this from my clients! But as the holiday rush hit, and then we sold our house and had to clear everything out quickly for the closing, all while I traveled a ton this spring (New Orleans, Salt Lake, Las Vegas, Austin, Las Vegas again, Paris, London, Boston, Calgary and finally Lake Louise in Banff), in addition to a lot of Houston boudoir photography sessions, I’ve fallen behind on blogging things here. So I wrote to Ms. J and asked her if I could share her images — and her response months after her session was the sweetest thing! I *LOVE* knowing how these sessions change women’s LIVES!
As I am sure that you have noticed through all my shout outs….my session with you was one of if not the best things I have ever done for myself. Your skills behind the camera are off the charts and I will be forever grateful for the confidence that you have given me in myself….a gift I can truly never repay! So in answer to your question….yes, yes, a million times YES!!! I would be honored!
Thank you so much, Ms. J! I’m glad that my boudoir photography brought you in to my life, that we’ve had the chance to become friends as well (yay, Facebook!) and that I could help give you that confidence. You are amazing, and I’m grateful to have met you! Thank you for allowing me to share your photographs here as well!
