Boudoir Opportunity -Maryland Boudoir Photographer

IMG_0334-2

I have a special boudoir opportunity available for an exclusive six fearless women. The average American boudoir session costs nearly $1,000 making boudoir photo shoots a big decision for many women.

My recent boudoir sessions have all been 100% confidential. Being a conservative gal myself I completely understand the reasons why a woman would want to keep her personal boudoir images private, especially if the pictures are a surprise for a special some one. However, I am looking for six fabulously fearless women to add to my online and printed boudoir portfolios.

If you or a friend would like an affordable and professional boudoir session then this is the perfect opportunity. Normally my boudoir packages start at $800. In exchange for permission to publish the photos taken during your boudoir session like previous women featured on this blog (such as the lovely Lauren pictured here), your boudoir investment would be only $450! The complete boudoir package includes your pre-boudoir consultation, your boudoir session, professional editing and retouching of your images, a custom DVD and case with your edited image files, and a free 5″x7″ print. That is over $350 worth in savings. Book your session by March 5th and receive an additional $50 off of your session.

With your permission, the images would be featured on my website, facebook, twitter, pinterest, and in my album samples. If a friend of yours signs up for this exciting boudoir discount and mentions that she was recommended by you, you will both receive an additional free 8″x0″ print of your choice.

Please share this post on Facebook and Twitter and with friends who may be interested in a boudoir photo shoot at a very affordable price. You can be one of the exclusive six women for this special offer, but sign up quickly because space is limited.

Boordy Vineyards Forever After Photo Session -Maryland Wedding Photographer

Meet Ellen and Bryan. This sweet couple married September 9, 2010 and to celebrate their two year anniversary we travelled to a local vineyard, Boordy Vineyard, to memorialize this point in their lives. A lot of attention is given to the couple photographically as the couple prepares to wed. After that it is maternity, newborn, and family portraits. Ellen and Bryan have three sweet little girls, but for this special occasion we spent the day celebrating just the two of them as a married couple. Ellen’s dress was perfect for the vineyard. She was dressed perfectly for a Maryland vineyard anniversary photo shoot!I love her eyes! When we arrived at Boordy’s we only had 40 minutes of sunlight to spare. You wouldn’t know that this photo shoot was crunched into such a short amount of time! The setting sunlight made a perfect golden hue for these photos when I caught it just right. Meet Bourbon! This enthusiastic pup couldn’t contain his excitement when we were taking these photos. I think he had more fun than Ellen and Bryan. At one point he did take off and Ellen and Bryan had to chase him down through the vineyard. This black and white photo is of them walking him back after they caught up to him. The sunlight was very bright and harsh at this point, but we still got away with these cute pics.Grapes! All this walking through the vineyard had me excited for fall fruit picking. (Cannot wait to get to an apple orchard!)These pictures remind me of a movie.We left shortly after the moon made an appearance.I had such a  difficult time picking out which ones to post and which pics to leave behind. Because I couldn’t upload all of them I did place several more of my faves in a file to upload to Facebook tonight. If you would like to see more pictures of Bryan, Ellen, and yes, Bourbon too, find the album at Lovely Lens Photography on Facebook. It will be up by 8 pm tonight!

Lovely Look -Boordy Vineyards Anniversary Photo Shoot

Here is a quick Lovely Look of last Friday’s Anniversary Happily Ever After Session at Boordy Vineyards in Maryland. (Part of Runaway Bride was filmed here!) We arrived with just 40 minutes of sunlight to use and got some very romantic photos in that short amount of time. Ellen and Bryan also brought along their canine pal, Bourbon. To see more photos of this lovely couple and their enthusiastic dog check out LovelyLensPhotography.com this wednesday. There are also more lovely looks from this session on the Facebook page. Happy Monday!

Christine and Jeff Part 2

So here it is, the moment you have all been waiting so patiently for! I hope that everyone has a wonderful labor Day off from work. Here are a few moments from the ceremony. The church was so little and cute.I can honestly say that I have never seen a happier groom at the altar! His reaction and laugh was absolutely priceless. He was so overjoyed and surprised to see Christine all glamoured up in her wedding gown. The officient’s joy at the first kiss was so sweet. This is a man who enjoys his job. I have a special thank you to Fred J. Brown of Fred J. Brown Studios. He was the piano player at the wedding and also happens to be a photographer. In the middle of the wedding he disappeared outside of the church to return with an amazing telephoto Canon lens that he let me borrow to take better photos from the mezzanine. There are so many great people out there. Thank you, Mr. Brown!My favorite part of the wedding is right after the couple is married and they have time to themselves to realize it. Then I get to have so much fun taking beautiful portraits of them and they are simply glowing. The groomsmen arrived in style (and on their motorcycles).Above, the maid of honor, Sarah, gives her beautiful speech. The one room reception hall located next door to the church was so sweet. The night before the girls decorated the walls with polka dots and placed out painted flower pots as center pieces. I love the details in weddings. Each wedding is different from the next and the way it is decorated tells you a lot about the couple’s style. Showing off the rings over dinner. I love photographing the rings! Remember these from the engagement shoot? These rings belonged to Jeff’s parents. Jeff had a blast with the first dance.I loved this rubber ducky cake topper!For a short while I set up a photo booth at the reception with some studio lights. We decided to use the wall with the polka dots as the back drop instead of the fabric I brought because it fit with the style of their wedding day. The above photo is just one of many that I took of the couple and their guests. Christine and Jeff are so cute!This last photo is a little behind the scenes picture that my assistant, Matthew, took of me. While Christine and Jeff were preparing to leave yours truly had the honor of decorating the get-away-car with a couple of their friends. The photographer is such a hidden behind the scenes part of the wedding day, which is perhaps one of the reasons why I adore my job so much. In the span of a wedding day I end up helping the guys with their ties, fixing wedding gown disasters, touching up make up and hair, and reassuring the nervous bride that her day is going to be as beautiful as she is. And yes, the occasional get-away-car.

Meet Baby Jaelynn! -Maryland Newborn Photographer

Today I would like you to meet baby Jaelynn! I absolutely love it when parents prepare a cute baby nursery. I love all of the little details and thoughts that went into the decorating. Melissa feeding baby Jaelynn. She was a hungry girl when we were taking photos. We thought it would make her fall asleep, but I guess the excitement of having a visitor kept her awake. How cute is that head band?! I love little baby shoes. Pretty soon we may be taking some family photos with sweet baby Jae. I hope that everyone had a great Memorial Day and that these cute pictures brightened your day!
