Originally a still-life art form, boudoir photography switched to human subjects when clothiers stopped making apple-size garter belts. Bite the fruits of seduction this Valentine’s Day with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a boudoir-photography package at The Boudoir Loft in Rochester (a $350 value). The package includes:
- A photography session and 20 retouched downloadable proofs (a $225 value)
- An 8”x8” photo book (a $125 value)
At The Boudoir Loft, expert shuttersmith Kimberly Williams and her all-female staff capture feminine forms with tasteful angles and skillful lighting in a private studio setting. During the Quickie photo shoot, Kimberly guides women through two outfit changes while suggesting poses, listening to ideas, and giving pointers on the most sensual pronunciations of the word “cheese.” After the shoot, Kimberly retouches images by cleaning up blemishes and makes other aesthetic tweaks, then uploads 20 digital high-resolution images onto a password-protected website from which clients can view and download images for 30 days. An 8”x8” book compiles physical evidence of the photo session into a romantic gift clients may present to their significant others or describe in exhaustively detailed texts. Though not included with this Groupon, clients may upgrade the shoot to include a makeup application and hairdressing for an additional charge.
The Boudoir Loft
The Boudoir Loft's owner and photographer Kimberly Williams captures artistically framed images within her private Rochester studio. Though she concentrates mostly on sensual boudoir shoots, Kimberly also snaps wedding photos and portraits of kids, teens, and the various developmental stages of prized hydrangea bushes. Kimberly also flexes her Photoshop skills as she edits each photo, erasing flaws and enhancing natural features to create high-quality, alluring images. Additionally, her full-service, onsite salon and event space Blowdry Divas offers airbrushing makeup services and professional haircare, and both companies join forces by combining makeovers and glamorous photo shoots for bachelorette parties, birthday parties, and girls’ nights out.
