As a boudoir photographer, one of the most common things I hear come from my clients is- “I would never have been able to do this with someone I didn’t know!” Let’s face it- taking our clothes off in front of our own mirrors is already hard enough sometimes, let alone in front of a CAMERA with a stranger standing behind it! Which is why it’s SO important for me to get to know my clients before the day of their session.
A few weeks ago I decided to hold an open house at my studio here in Sebastian, FL for that very reason! I wanted potential clients and clients who had already booked a boudoir session with me to be able to come and break the ice. What better way to do that than over mimosas?? My business is built on the idea that I want to make women feel special, valued, and empowered in their own skin, as well as give them a place to come to “unplug” from life, so of course I had to pamper each and every person that came (scroll down for pics!!).
Every guest who attended received special treatment! At the front door was my boudoir table with all of my products displayed, as well as a sizzling deal I was running for anyone who booked that day (hooray for the 4 gorgeous women who received a whopping $200 off for booking with me!!). There was a raffle for some girly gifts with a sign in sheet so I could contact the winner, and let everyone know about the next event I’m planning (coffee and cookies around Christmas, anyone??).
In the studio room I had gift bags set out which included a nice gift certificate for each guest valued at $100, a lingerie guide that I created, and a few other small things. Aren’t those pink striped bags darling?? And notice the embossed bag labels with my business monogram? Love them!
EVER skincare specialist Nicki Pasqualone had a huge display of products to try out set up in the kitchen next to a mimosa bar, and anyone who wanted to could sample one of their refreshing masks.
And to top it ALL off, two of my talented makeup artists were also at the studio doing mini makeovers with lash application, airbrushing, and brows. A few of my clients who have boudoir sessions booked in the future with me were able to have a "trial run" on their makeup before their big day (talk about getting REALLY excited!). I really think everyone who came had a great time and definitely felt pampered!! A big thank you to everyone who came out, and to the lovely ladies who helped me pamper you!!
Most days, I forget to take time for myself, which is what I really wanted for these women.. to come and sit down for awhile, sip on mimosas, mingle, and be pampered. Not only did I want to meet them, but I wanted them to have a "girl's day out" if you will, which is what I want for every single client! I offer personalized 1:1 shopping and even help you pick out the perfect outfits for your session.
