The great Romantic painters had the same goal—to craft an image so beautiful that it would come to life and marry them. Increase your chances of turning images into love using the modern version of painting, photography, with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a 30-minute boudoir photo shoot and a CD of 10 retouched proofs at AdoraLee Photography in Norman (a $334.40 value, including tax).
The savvy photographers at AdoraLee Photography capture female forms using evocative angles and skillfully arranged lighting in a boudoir setting. During the 30-minute photo shoot, skilled members of the all-girl team will guide solo subjects through a series of poses and the most sensual pronunciations of the word cheese. After the shoot, a CD of 10 retouched proofs lets clients page through the seductive slideshow on their computer or print out images as gifts to their significant others. Sessions can be scheduled between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Though not included in this Groupon, subjects can also choose to undergo an in-studio hair-and-makeup session before the shoot to add sauciness to their look without bathing in a kiddie pool filled with tomatoes ($80).
Adoralee Boudoir Studio
Lacy Hammack made her first forays into boudoir photography while living with her Marine Corps husband in the midst of the Mojave Desert. While she was first armed only with the skills of a yearbook photographer, she taught herself the ins and outs of professional studio lighting and photo editing, moving away from what she calls her "Photoshopographer" days to perfect a lighter touch that softly airbrushes imperfections while highlighting natural beauty. Lacy's extensive experimentation with lighting and posing has blossomed into a well-honed pin-up style that she and her all-female staff practice at AdoraLee Boudior Studio's two locations.
After passing through AdoraLee's storefront lingerie store (at the Norman location only), clients are treated to extensive coaching on how to get the most from their boudoir shoot. Pre-session pointers help women choose their ensembles; during the session, music and chatter sets the air at ease while photogs guide their subjects into every pose, snapping alluring eye-level shots in the makeup room or sensual high angle shots over the studio's fluffy bed. Four additional set options—including red damask or black velvet backdrops—inspire photographers as they expertly blend studio lighting with a wide variety of poses to flatter any body type. Through high-contrast color shots and classic black-and-white prints, AdoraLee photographers strive to make every woman—whether curvy, pregnant, postpartum, or mid-werewolf transformation—into a sensual siren.
