Happy February Everyone! It’s that time of the month, where we are officially ready to celebrate love, dress our kids in the cutest outfits, and of course get photos of our littles to capture the moment! So, with all of that, I am so so so excited to share with you all, something SUPER special! I am offering Valentine Mini Sessions on this FABULOUS wall of greenery in my home studio in Galloway, NJ! It took me a while to put together, and for good reason! It is SO versatile, I can use this wall for so many different sets. I can’t wait to start using it! But, more about the Valentine Mini Sessions… The details are below:
Let’s talk online proofing gallery: Why is it awesome?
The online proofing gallery doesn’t just deliver 3 images. You will receive a nice sized gallery of images to choose from. So, if you get 10-20 images, you will have to find your favorite images, but thats great, because you are not getting something you do not love! Also, if you find more than 3 that you like, you can absolutely purchase additional images, or purchase the entire gallery for an additional cost.
Why is it great to book mini sessions?
Mini sessions are a great way to document your child’s growth as they get older. Maybe a regular session isn’t your cup of tea, maybe it is. But, you’re saving for that epic spring family session in the most beautiful park down the street. Mini sessions are quick, fast, and your kids won’t lose interest! It’s especially good for the littles, roughly ages 1-10.

It’s easy to say that you will never take boudoir photos. It’s a scary thing, to get in front of the camera, and shed your clothing. I know, because I’ve been there. I decided to get in front of the camera last year, at my summer boudoir marathons. It was scary; I will not lie to you. After a few minutes, I started to see a change in myself. I felt good, I felt empowered, I felt free. It was finally me being myself, and being proud of myself for doing something I would never do. I started out doing this for my husband, thinking he would love this! It soon became something I wanted to do FOR ME! I needed a self-esteem boost, after having two kids; I didn’t think my body was, ya know, where it should be. I couldn’t believe how happy I was with my body, with myself, and how proud and excited I was to show my husband the photos. He loved them, of course, but I wasn’t even afraid to show him, because I was pleased with how I looked.
I want to take you all through a walkthrough of how these sessions are. In the past, I go above and beyond to get these amazing suites. I booked the sessions an hour apart, to give ample time for hair, makeup, and privacy. This boudoir marathon I am going to show you was at the Showboat just before it closed. I knew I had to book this amazing suite, because it would cease to exist, had I not booked it! It was called, the House of Blues Suite! It was majestic, fabulous, dark, and romantic. It wasn’t like my other boudoir marathons were – bright and airy. It was definitely different, but I loved the mood it was giving the photos.
I of course, take care of my clients, and had gifts and cookies prepared for them! (and some pink champagne to loosen up the nerves) The cookies (so delicious) were designed and baked by the fabulous Flourish! You can find Flourish on Facebook, InstaGram and Etsy if you’d like to have your own fabulous cookies custom designed for you!
Upon entering there was a gorgeous sitting area where hair and makeup was being done. Angela Campanale did hair and Kiara Upsher did makeup. They are both seriously, the sweetest! Angela works at a local hair salon and is AMAZING and Kiara owns her own cosmetic business so everything she puts on you is also for sale. She can even make you a custom foundation blend (just ask!) and all of her products are not tested on animals, and are super friendly for even the most sensitive of skin! (It’s also my makeup of choice, thanks for the hookup lady!) Check out Kiara Upsher on Facebook, InstaGram, and her online cosmetic store!
To start, I want to show off my own photos. I definitly broke out of my shell and opened up a lot! It was exilerating and I am so happy and proud to have these photos to show off (and give to my hubby)!
All of the women who came out were amazing! They had so much fun, and even came with friends! I encourage friends to tag along, and if they want a session or to jump in, make sure to pre book so we are prepared and you get the hair and makeup! Also, everyone who books, goes home with a goodie bag! It’s my special treat to end this night with something fun!
