$99 for In-Studio Boudoir Photo Shoot with Three Digital Images ($525 Value)

Clients step into the softly lit studio's private dressing room, where they can dress down to their desired costume of lingerie, fur, or footie pajamas. They pose in front of Paulette's camera under light cast by flickering candles to the sounds of music they brought from home. Throughout the intimate shoot, Paulette works to keep her clients at ease and gives tips to help each subject bring out her sensual side. In a follow-up appointment, customers choose their three favorite images to be retouched and loaded onto a CD to take home.

Paulette Mertes Studios

Though photographer Paulette Mertes usually poses her subjects, she captures them at moments that reveal their personality, such as during a smile, a wink, or a barely concealed laugh. Her photographs of adults, families, children, and pets glow with vibrant colors under high-contrast or soft-focus lighting. Paulette photographs babies, families, pets, and boudoir sessions in the comfort of her private studio, and also goes on-location to capture children, students, and newlyweds frolicking across a park or doing their taxes in front of a gushing waterfall. During each shoot she focuses on the small details in addition to the picture at large, a technique that's earned her accolades such as a Professional Photographers of America silver medal in 2011.
