A few weeks ago, I received a call from Phyllis from Austin Born. Have you heard of them? They are an awesome doula collective here in Austin, Texas and Phyllis is the owner/manager of the business. She had a proposition for me. Her and a few of her colleagues wanted to host an event for moms with children under 12 months old, to celebrate and show off their new postpartum bodies. They wanted a photographer to participate and take boudoir photos of each of the moms and she asked if I was interested. Seeing that I love mamas, I love new mamas, and I love boudoir photos…..the answer was a clear YES. This event is the ultimate way to empower new moms to love on their changed bodies, leaky breasts and all.
Phyllis then mentioned that she is working with the owner of Teddies for Bettys to provide loaner lingerie for the shoot. And a fellow doula, Nicole, had access to a gorgeous home to host the event in. While there were a few details to hammer out, it already had the makings of something extraordinary.
We’ve been making plans and working on those details, and the event is ready to be shared with all of you! (I toured the home last week – ladies, you are going to get some amazing photos!).
Here are the details: When you participate, you will join a group of ladies for lots of laughs at a private residence, where you will mingle, snack on yummy refreshments, pick out a gorgeous lingerie outfit to borrow for your shoot, have professional hair & make up styling, and then get a mini-boudoir session with ME! All of the mingling will happen downstairs, and your private photoshoot will happen upstairs. Arriving early and relaxing with other mamas will not only be a lot of fun (who wants to compare baby poop stories??) but it will also help get you ready to be in front of the camera! A couple weeks after the shoot, you and I will get together to look through your gallery of photos. You will have $100 to spend on prints/albums/digitals (and of course can spend more than that if you find yourself loving every single photo – which is a good possibility!).
Click on the event link here to find out more information, and to RSVP for the shoot. A deposit through Austin Born is required, and space is very limited, so contact them ASAP to reserve your spot.
Don’t forget to plan a sexy date night (or ladies night!) later that day – you will be all dolled up and full of beautiful confidence!
