Jessica saw a Folio Box print set that I created for her close friend and then contacted me to ask about scheduling a session. She was interested in surprising her husband with a sexy, personalized Valentine's Day gift.
I like to set up a phone call for new inquiries so I can learn a little about the person and how they would like to be photographed. It helps me determine if I am the right photographer for them, and it also helps me understand the type of session that will serve them best. I learned so many fun things about this beautiful woman. She is a very responsible business manager, she and her husband are Tampa Bay hockey fans (or maybe I should say fanatics?), she has a college degree in music and plays with an orchestra, and years back she was given the nickname 'Flash' by her friends (and she was not on the track team!).
We decided that we were a good fit for each other and started to do some planning for her secret photo session and surprise gift. I asked her to collect photographs of boudoir concepts that she liked. We discussed the concept images that she selected and what would work, and what might not work, in the space that she would use for her session. I had so much fun working with her ideas and I love the images that we created. I want to thank Jessica for giving me permission to share a few of them here.
Click the 'Contact' tab at the top of this page to inquire about scheduling your own, personal boudoir session. You will love the experience and you will get beautiful photos that you will treasure for years to come.
ps - I received the following note from Jessica after she delivered her surprise Valentine's gift. Messages like this are why I love what I do so much. - - -
"I cannot tell you how proud I am of the photos we took! My husband has been ooo-ing and ah-ing all over them!!
Mission accomplished! Thank you so much again! I have two or three friends who are very interested in sessions! I have passed along your information but if you get time and can spare, send me some of your business cards so I can hand them out! I have one but that one is mine for a future session! Hopefully a couple's boudoir session for us! (He has been kind of intrigued!)
Anyway, I just wanted to thank you again! The pictures have been received so well and everyone is so utterly impressed with the quality and overall experience! I am very blessed to have had Rachel recommend you!"
and then a week later she shared this note with me -
My husband sent a text to me Wednesday this past week and said "there hasn't been a day since Saturday when your pics got on my phone I haven't stared at them. It feels like I've fallen in love with you all over again. Maybe because your pictures reminded me how stunning and breathtakingly beautiful and incredibly sexy you are!! I am so lucky I get to have you as all mine."
