Boston & Rhode Island boudoir dates announced

I’m so excited to be able to share our boudoir dates for my upcoming trip to Boston and Rhode Island. I’ll be offering just a few b&w hotel sessions September 13-16, 2011 in Rhode Island, just 40 minutes outside Boston. I am available on September 14/15 for individually-scheduled Boston in-home sessions or for a group of gals who want to get together and split a room.

Session fee includes one 5×7″ fine art desk print

Prints or books available after the session a la carte.

  • Hair and makeup available from a stylist onsite for an additional $100; otherwise I encourage you to visit a salon for a blowout before the session. There is a mall located across the street from our hotel with a MAC counter and salon.
  • All images are in black and white.
  • My images are not heavily retouched. Our work, philosophy, and style centers around putting together a collection of images that are naturally flattering to each individual woman. I prefer natural skin textures and will not alter the shape of a woman’s body. Temporary skin issues such as blemishes, cuts or bruises [and small scars] may be retouched at the request of the client.
  • Books and prints are available for additional fee after the session. Please see sample galleries [code: 2011RH] for an example of pricing and product offering.

EVERY woman.

I’ve known about this Lifetime television series for a long time, but Netflix doesn’t seem to have the discs so I have not been able to see it until now. I am convinced that this should be required viewing for every single woman on the planet. The first episode is particularly realistic. (I often find Carson’s television host personality to err on the annoying side, but he does a good job with this.)

Please, take some time to watch How to Look Good Naked. You won’t regret it.

feedback – boudoir & wedding

“Thank you so much for the beautiful boudoir pictures you took of me… you made me feel so comfortable, and it was so nice how much time you took with me. I was married on June 6, and my husband loved his gift. He couldn’t wait to get back to look at the pictures again! It was the one reason that didn’t make coming home from our honeymoon a complete downer…. thanks!

-J, March 2009 boudoir client

“The photos are amazing!!!! We are so lucky to have you in the family and to have you as our photographer!”

-Haady, July 2009 wedding client (and now cousin)

“The pictures turned out really well.  We are both very happy about them.  Thanks Rachel, good job, four thumbs up! You really captured a lot fun and memorable moments.  Wouter and I looked great despite the fact that we were tired and slept a few hours the night before. Yes we were very smiley and happy, it was adrenaline rush and I was trying not to look tired.  You really made us feel comfortable in front of the camera.”

- Eileen, July 2009 wedding client

“Thank you so much for taking my boudoir pictures. We had a great day and then that night when I gave them to him he flipped! He loves them! (So do I!). Thanks again for everything.”

-T, boudoir client

I don’t often show much from my boudoir sessions, as the privacy of my clients is of highest concern, and these intimate photos are meant for an audience of one: the beloved.

Images I do post are with the permission of the subject, and usually do not show identifiable face to further protect privacy.

I think human bodies are beautiful.

For booking information or to schedule a boudoir portrait session, email!

Boston Magazine | Boston BOUDOIR!

I’m a longtime reader of Boston Magazine, so I am thrilled beyond words that the April 2009 issue hit shelves and mailboxes around the metro yesterday, and the online articles made an appearance today [link].

Rachel Baker, editor at Boston Magazine, came in for a boudoir studio shoot as she was preparing for her article about Boston boudoir. She writes the “Fashion Masochist” column for the magazine, a regular piece I appreciate for its humor and wit.

To be honest, I’ve not had many positive experiences with publications – they often seem to take quotes and material out of context to suit their own spin – and one even went so far as to use an incorrect business name! Naturally, I was nervous to see what Rachel would have to say in her write-up.

Luckily, the feature is all positive – with a side dig at the fact that I don’t airbrush my photos (*). So, yay!

Kind of related, but on a different subject, Catherine just sent me a link to this rant about the celebrity “sexy face.” Ha! [ link ]
