The Perfect Gift… for ALL Occasions!

boudoir photography

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! 

Oh, you thought you were going to get through this blog series without me mentioning Christmas? Have we even met? I’m already working on my Merry Murphy Christmas party (best party of the year, no big deal) and planning out redecorating my mantle around the darling portrait of my girls with Santa at the Cookies with Kringle event we had at the studio today so yeah, I’m going to talk about Christmas! 

And speaking of planning, I want to go over the timeline for holiday boudoir portraits. If you are planning on giving boudoir portraits as a gift for your significant other for Christmas, now is the time to book. I repeat, this week is the time to book, to allow for our four to six week turnaround time without an additional rush charge. We can always rush a turnaround time, but we want you to have the full and pampering experience of having a boudoir session. And I’d also like to add that it is the perfect week to book and have a session because it’s before Thanksgiving and who honestly wants to get in their skivvies for a photoshoot between Thanksgiving and Christmas? Not this girl! I plan on being in my comfiest sweatpants, working through my Christmas movies, and drinking champagne at every available opportunity. 

What comes to mind when you think of a Christmas themed boudoir shoot? Is it trashy pimento red panties and a cheap Santa hat and ‘Santa Baby’ on repeat in the background? Yeah, me too. But there are lots of really beautiful and classy ways we can have a Christmas theme for your session, we can even have Christmas be just one of the looks that you choose. Cozy sweaters always photography beautifully. Drapey white curtains and white Christmas lights give a lovely nod to snow and the magic of the season, and chunky sweater thigh highs are so sexy. But again, I’m the Christmas Queen so I fully support the idea of having an entire boudoir shoot devoted to the best holiday of the year! 

There are many options for how you can showcase your boudoir images. The most common choice is an heirloom quality album that can be brought out and enjoyed anytime. We have many options for paper, covers, and completely personalized layouts so that this can be exactly what you envision and tailored to be the perfect gift that will be enjoyed year after year. Keep in mind that even if this is a Christmas gift, the album itself, or any of the other popular products we offer, don’t have to have a “theme.” A classically designed album is always an excellent choice, a gorgeous framed portrait to hang in your closet is another popular option. 

It’s also not too early to be thinking about the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day! Remember that turnaround time, especially for albums, is six weeks so booking now for a session in early January is the ideal time frame for having the best gift ever for that special someone in your life this February 14th. Besides that, scheduling a boudoir experience for yourself in January is a fantastic way to practice some New Year self-care and combat those winter blues by treating yourself to a pampering and empowering experience. All that and still knocking out your Valentine’s Day shopping? Win, win!  

If you have any questions about turnaround times, the products we offer, or to book a boudoir experience of your very own for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or just because you deserve it, contact me today. I can’t wait to hear from you!
