I wanted to let you know about a special event coming up this month. On November 15, 2009, Shale Photography will be offering a boudoir photography marathon. This is a wonderful opportunity to have some special images created for your significant other as a gift; perfect for newlyweds, birthday gifts, or to make the holidays sizzle! Boudoir photos also make a great gift for the first anniversary, which is traditionally a "paper" gift.
What is boudoir photography?
"Boudoir" is the French word for bedroom, where these photo shoots will be done. Boudoir images are personal, beautiful images created in an intimate session. Most often, women wear lingerie or other beautiful, personal, or sensual articles for these sessions. Boudoir images make an excellent gift and are a perfect way to capture women looking their best at a time when they are at their most beautiful.
What is a boudoir marathon?
A "marathon" photo shoot is where multiple clients are booked in the same day in the same location. The photographer is able to shoot multiple sessions in a short period of time. By doing this, we are able to provide a great location and service at a reasonable cost.
Date: November 15, 2009
Time: Sessions booked on the hour; first session at 9:00 am and the last session at 4:00 pm.
Location: Hotel Arts, Calgary
Cost: $200 for your photo shoot; $100 extra for hair and make-up services.
Your session will include the following:
-A 45-minute session with Shannon Lane of Shale Photography
-Private use of a King Suite at the luxurious Hotel Arts in downtown Calgary for your session
-A glass of wine to help you relax
-A DVD with 50 of your best images, including 5 fully retouched
-Personal usage and printing rights for your images
-A 5x7 photograph in a black folder, printed professionally in a beautiful metallic finish.
-Drinks and snacks will be provided while you wait
If you have opted to add hair and make-up services, this service is provided by Melissa Ann, a professional make-up artist and hair stylist in Calgary, Alberta.
What about privacy?
Your session will be photographed one-on-one with Shannon. There will be no other people present in the photography area of the room. Other clients may be having their hair and make-up done in the foyer of the room; this area will be separated by a curtain.
What do I need to do to prepare?
You will want to bring a selection of outfits for your session; 3-4 outfits is plenty. This can include lingerie, a sports jersey, a favourite pair of jeans that your man loves; anything you feel beautiful and sexy in. Feel free to bring props as well; anything personal to yourself or your significant other is great, such as a cowboy hat or boots, your wedding veil, flowers, or jewelery. As well, don't forget shoes! Heels lengthen and thin the legs and look fantastic in boudoir photos.
How long does it take to receive the images?
Your images will be ready for you in 3-4 weeks, just in time to give as a gift for Christmas.
What is your cancellation policy?
Due to the marathon nature of these sessions, it is important that you are able to attend your schedule session. If you must cancel, it is expected that you will find someone to take your spot. Refunds are not available once sessions are booked.
I tried to book a session and everything was fully booked! Are you offering another date?
We will keep a wait list if things fill up; if you would like to be added to the wait list, please contact Shannon and she will add your name. If there is enough demand, a second marathon will be held on November 22.
