Katie Marie Photography proudly presents the first ever..

BOUDOIR MARATHON

Hey you. I see you. You’ve been contemplating this for a while, but were unsure of how to do it. Maybe you want to gift your significant other, or maybe you just want to feel sexy as hell in your own skin and do it for YOU. Maybe you want to document a milestone in your life. Maybe you just want to come hang out with me and drink champagne?

Whatever YOUR reason is, this is your sign. Take the leap, do it for yourself. You won’t regret doing it, but you will regret missing out.

PSST.. THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL PHOTO SHOOT.

It’s not a “quick session, in and out, and a few digital files afterwards”. It’s an experience from start to finish.

I will be there every step of the way, from helping you plan & coordinate outfits, how to prepare, and what to expect. During the session, you’ll be laughing so much you’ll probably forget you’re even getting photos taken.

Afterwards, you’ll be welcomed back to your “reveal party” taking place at my studio. Basically, this is a chance for you to come into my studio, check out some products in person, and choose your included 6 images and any extras. Like I said above, this is an experience and MUCH different than my standard mini sessions. I’m holding your images hostage until your reveal party, because I want to surprise you. From there, we can pick out some products and add any extras on.

A boudoir session focuses on making you look, AND feel your best. Prepare to discover an overwhelming confidence you didn’t know you had.

But I’m not photogenic. I’m not “ready”

Truth is, you’ll never really “be ready”. Chances are, if you’re reading this, you’ve probably had that battle in your head that went a little something like this…
”Oh, a boudoir session! I’d love to do that.. maybe when I lose 20lbs.”
”I’ll book one when I’m a little more tanned”
”I’m too awkward, I won’t know what to do.”
”I’m too embarrassed.”


If this sounds like you, I get it. I’ve been there myself. And to be honest, you’ll never fully be ready. Boudoir is one of those things you just have to throw yourself into. If you keep putting it off, you’ll never take the leap. I promise you, when I say you’re in good hands… you are in GOOD HANDS. I know how to take flattering images. I know how to make you look YOUR best, in whatever YOU feel comfortable in. And I can PROMISE, that no one who has booked this type of session has ever regretted it. Not even for one second.

Can I bring a friend?

Absolutely! If you think you’d feel more comfortable having someone accompany you, by all means! It’s your call when it comes to that. I don’t mind having some company while shooting if it means you’ll feel more comfortable. However, I do ask that if you are bringing someone, you limit it to ONE friend per client. Also, I do ask that no males are present, so please bring a female friend if possible.

I can’t make it. When will you offer a boudoir marathon again?

I already offer full boudoir sessions regularly, so if you’re unable to make the marathon - we can always set up your own full session at any time. The difference between a boudoir marathon and a standard boudoir session, are the shooting time, outfit limitations, cost and AIRBNB rental. If you’re interested in setting up a full session, let me know and I can send you over some information.

What should I wear?

Have no fear, I gotchu covered. Once you’re booked, I’ll be sending you a style prep guide outlining some recommendations on what to wear and what to bring. Also, a ton of information on how to prep for your session.


HERE’S THE DETAILS.

WHEN? FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 2019
WHERE? AN INCREDIBLE AIRBNB 15 MINUTES OUTSIDE OF HAMILTON (WATERDOWN AREA)


Also, the Airbnb is located beside a Cider House. Which means, if you’re bringing a friend, you can grab some cider before or after you session. How cool?

HOW IT WORKS…

STEP ONE: RESERVE YOUR SPOT.

Simply choose a date/time from the link below to secure your spot.

 

STEP THREE: THE WAIT.

After your session, I’ll take all the images home and edit them within a week. The images will be fully edited & lightly retouched for when you arrive for your viewing appointment. If any further retouching is required, let me know at the viewing and I can make changes as needed.

 

STEP TWO: ARRIVE AN HOUR BEFORE YOUR TIME SLOT.

Your session will include hair and makeup, which means you must arrive at least 1 hour prior to the start of your session. SO, if you are booking a 4pm session, you must arrive by 3pm ready to go for hair and makeup. While you’re getting hair/makeup done, I’ll be photographing another session in one of the rooms. Everything will be kept separate, as most of the boudoir photos will be taking place in the bedroom anyways.

 

STEP FOUR: THE VIEWING.

EEEK.. the fun part! I’ll contact you as soon as your photos are ready, and invite you into the studio for your viewing appointment. There will be time slots available (1 hour blocks), so pick a slot that best suits your schedule. Here, you’ll be able to choose your 6 included images, and purchase any additional ones as well.

ALSO, there will be a TON of products on display for you to check out. If you love any, we can place the order while you’re there. I’ll walk you through every step of the way and help with the purchasing process. This includes albums, prints, and everything else in-between. Make sure to bring a form of payment with you when you arrive.. juuuust in case you fall in love. spoiler: you will

NOTE: The average product investment per client is $200-400 afterwards. My products range in variety anywhere from $40-$500. I’m sure you’ll be able to find something you love within your budget. Tangible items surpass digitals any day, so it’ll be worth every penny.

My “why”…

I’ve wanted to get into Boudoir Photography for quite sometime now. As someone who has struggled with insecurities growing up, there is NO greater feeling than being able to make someone else feel confident, sexy, and radiate from head to toe. The older I get, I’ve realized the importance of loving yourself, every inch of yourself. In today’s society, that can be hard. I’ve made it my mission to use my gift of art & creativity to empower others, by showing you just how beautiful you truly are.

I’m super fun to be around, promise. I’ve been told I have a gift of making my clients feel comfortable the moment we begin the session. When it comes to Boudoir photography, it’s crucial that your photographer has that skill. Making you feel comfortable means great photos. Relaxed, candid, natural expressions are always the best.

Seeing how confident my client leaves after their session is unlike any other experience for me. Being able to give them that overwhelming sense of confidence without even seeing their final images is incredible, and once they do see the images - well, you’ll see for yourself.

SO, ARE YOU READY TO JOIN?
