Beautiful Allison | Studio Newborn Photographer

December 27, 2010

When Allison’s Mom called to book her newborn session, I jumped for joy! This beautiful baby girl joined a family that is near and dear to my heart. I worked with Allison’s Dad at Target for many years. I always called him my big brother even though I’m older than him. 🙂  When their first child was born, I gifted them an in-home photo session to capture the beauty that was their newborn son, Blake.  Here are some favorites from our photo session at the studio. Isn’t she a doll?  I couldn’t get enough of her and I hope you can’t either.

Boudoir photography involves creating intimate and romantic images of a woman, most commonly wearing lingerie. Boudoir is a French term that refers to a bedroom which is the setting for these images. Having these photos made is a rising trend for women across the country – from brides giving an album to their fiancé on their wedding day to women taking photos for themselves. It’s fun to have a day of pampering with hair and makeup and then have some beautiful photos taken afterwards. Women always leave the photo shoot feeling more confident and many say it was a liberating experience.  Jessica will provide guidance during the tasteful photo session to accentuate only your most fabulous features. Bring your favorite lingerie, nylons/tights, high heeled shoes, a sexy hat, pearl necklaces, or even a men’s dress shirt.  I promise, the experience will be unforgettable!
