Valentine's Day Boudoir Sessions // Santa Barbara, CA

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and has me reminiscing about this boudoir session I did with a client before her wedding day last year. It was so fun and empowering and I'm dying to do more of these this year! Boudoir is something I've always done, but never really advertised. Partly because of client privacy (I was given permission to use the images below) and partly because I've been so focused on building my wedding brand. But THIS is the year I expand my focus.

I will be hosting 2 days of Valentine's Day mini sessions; one on Sunday, January 24th from 9am to 2pm (5 slots available) and one on Sunday, January 31st from 9am to 2pm (5 slots available). Each session will be 45 minutes long and will include 20 high-resolution retouched images on a pretty flash drive and a set of 4x6 prints. Come with hair and makeup done or au natural - however you feel sexiest. Bring wardrobe options or nothing at all. Champagne and dirty jokes are on me. Each session costs $150.

Tyler and Madalynn // Mini Session // Santa Ynez, CA

Ahh, youth. This mini session brought me back. Way back. Remember being young and in love in the springtime? Newly tanned skin, short shorts, the smell of freshly cut grass in the air. Everything was so simple. Emotions were so intense. These two beautiful people, I'm happy to say, are nothing like I was at 18. They are so level-headed and sure-footed, it's hard to believe they are so young. Soon, they will be faced with a difficult goodbye. The kind of goodbye that puts you on different continents for a year or more with limited communication. They are handling it remarkably well. Our mini session together was intended to freeze this moment in time. To capture the affection, the silliness, the laughter and the details so that when they are missing one another, they can look at these photos and feel it all again.

They certainly melt my heart. Hope to see you when you get engaged, Madalynn and Tyler!
