One of the perks of living in Houston is that I can easily do New Orleans boudoir photography sessions. New Orleans is one of my favorite cities – I am there once a quarter, and the sessions are always SO much fun! I love being able to bring my work to the fabulous Hot Mamas of New Orleans and the rest of Louisiana as well.
Mrs. S doesn’t live in New Orleans – she actually drove TWO hours to come do a session with me! I was so honored that she coordinated making that happen, leaving the kids at home with her husband to spend a fantastic afternoon with me. (I always hear the BEST stories of what wives tell their husbands about where they are going when they are really coming in for a boudoir session for a gift. You sometimes have to get a bit creative to get out of the house without spoiling the surprise!)
Mrs. S originally was looking for a boudoir photographer for one of her girlfriends who wanted to do a session. Her girlfriend ended up deciding not to do one, but Mrs. S was so excited about it, she went ahead and booked one for herself! How awesome is that?
I loved her enthusiasm before the shoot – she told me that it was her dream shoot! She absolutely LOVES New Orleans and we were able to incorporate her wedding dress (while showing off some skin!) to make it a dream come true. She did the session as a gift for her firefighter husband who works in the oil field, and we had such a fabulous time!
A few days after our session, Mrs. S sent me the sweetest email thanking me for the session, and I loved how she summed up the experience:
“As I drove away from you Sunday night, a little teary-eyed, I realized I haven’t felt that good about me being me in so very long. You managed to make me feel like I was on top of the world, not like I was doing something derrogatory or dirty.”
That? That is why I do what I do. I love being able to share that feeling with Hot Mamas!
In New Orleans and want to know when I’ll be back so you can book a session with me? Keep an eye on Travel Dates (aka the Hot Mama World Tour!) page, and contact me to let me know that you are interested and I’ll notify you when the next dates are set up!
Here are more from her session!
Here is that wonderful wedding dress she brought along to incorporate in to her boudoir session – so beautiful!
How hysterical (and awesome) is this t-shirt that her husband bought for her that she brought along!
She also brought along her favorite pair of boots and cute dress, and we headed down to the lobby of the hotel and headed outside!
While we were out walking around the area and taking photos, we spotted this car. Mrs. S told me it was her dream car – so we had to get a photograph with it! RAWR!
Don’t forget — if you’re in New Orleans and want to set up a boudoir, beauty or glamour session, let me know! Watch the Travel Dates page, and contact me so you’ll be at the top of the list for booking your session!
