Sweetheart Sessions 2015.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and this year we want to help you give your loved one something priceless. These photos can also be a nice way to treat yourself to a special day. Whatever the case is, we are here to make you feel beautiful. We are offering 4 boudoir shoots on January 31st at 10am, 12pm, 2pm, and 4pm.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

  • Two hour boudoir photoshoot session at the Locust Street Inn.
  • Styling by hair & make-up artist Mallory Chokas.
  • At least 25 edited images of you looking absolutely amazing.
  • A 7″x7″ booklet of the 20 best photos for you to give to your loved one.

LOCATION

We’ll be photographing at the historic Locust Street Inn, a cute little bed & breakfast located next to Giuseppe’s Italian Restaurant in Denton, TX. The room comes with an antique queen iron bed, a claw-footed tub, a mirrored vanity, and lots of windows for beautiful lighting.

HAIR & MAKEUP

Mallory Chokas is a wonderful hair & make-up artist we have been working with this past year, and never fails to make anyone look their absolute best. Please arrive with clean hair & a clean face, and any photos of hair & make-up you would like Mallory to emulate. You’ll have one hour dedicated to hair & make-up before your shoot.

OUTFITS & PROPS

We’ll have time for up to 3 outfits (especially if they are easy to change into), but 1 outfit should be plenty. Lingerie, garters, a man’s dress shirt, a kimono robe, whatever outfit makes you feel pretty, bring it along. We’ll also have several vintage props for you to use, such as an antique mirror and a vintage telephone, but you are more than welcome to bring your own. It’s your shoot and we want to make sure it reflects your personality!

POSING

We will direct you throughout the whole shoot, and show you examples of poses to try, so don’t feel like you need to know all the supermodel poses before you arrive. We’ll help you every step of the way. And if you have some ideas of poses you’d like to try, we would love to see them and try them out. Also we won’t be photographing anything too scandalous, but we’re happy to photograph the illusion of nudity (under blankets, topless showing the back, behind a prop or hands).

GUESTS

It’s okay to have someone with you during your session but we don’t recommend it, because the room isn’t very large, and it can be distracting (mostly for you). Also having someone there you’re familiar with can make you a bit more self-conscious, but if you feel it’s important, and it would help you feel comfortable, it’s alright with us to bring one person along.

EDITING

We want to make sure you look every bit as beautiful as you feel. So help us understand your vision and tell us what assets you want to focus on and what you don’t want seen very much. If there’s anything you’re self-conscious about, please let us know so that we can try to avoid or hide it in photos. While we’re happy to edit out minor details that can be distracting (visible scars, stretch marks, cellulite or zits), we don’t feel comfortable altering the shape of your body through Photoshop. We want you to appreciate your beautiful body as it is.

PACKAGE

The package includes at least 25 edited photos, available in a private online gallery where you can order prints, and a $25 print credit. We also include a 7”x7” hardcover book with your 20 best photos, the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day.

PAYMENT

Once you email us about booking a shoot, you will be able to choose which time of day you would like to book, and the option of including a video. To book your shoot, you’ll need to pay a deposit of 40%, with the rest due on January 30th. If you need more time to make the final payment, please let us know.

HELPFUL HINTS

Please avoid from eating a large amount of food before your session. It helps you feel more comfortable because you won’t feel bloated. Also a visit to the gym the night before or morning of will really help you show off your fitness. Let us know what your favorite empowering music is, and we’ll have it ready for your shoot to help you feel comfortable and confident. (Erin personally listens to Beyoncé to help her feel like she can do anything.) We’ll have free mimosas available to help you relax. But the best advice we can give you is to just have fun! Fancy lighting and elegant poses will help you look good, sure, but what will really make you look beautiful is a natural laugh, a free spirit, and confidence in yourself. Let this shoot be a gift to yourself too! Have fun with it! Celebrate your body and your good looks, and we’ll take some photos you can cherish forever.

Book your shoot now by emailing wesley@thevisionbeautiful.com.

I was really comfortable working with Erin & Wesley. I really enjoyed doing the shoot and I felt super confident – thanks to Mallory’s awesome makeup skills and Erin & Wesley’s talent. It’s definitely something I’ll remember and I’m so glad I did it!” – Katy
