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 with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a boudoir photo-shoot package at TAIT Photography (a $220 value). The package includes:
- 55-minute photo shoot (a $150 value)
- Two retouched 4”x6” prints (a $70 value)
Expert shutterbug and TAIT Photography–owner Erica Tait captures female forms using evocative angles and skillfully arranged lighting within a boudoir setting. During the private 55-minute session, solo subjects join Erica at a hotel in downtown Richmond, where she guides them through a series of sultry poses and up to four wardrobe changes, coaxing a range of expressions from faces and a range of referee gestures from hands. Clients can garnish their outfits by dipping into Erica’s collection of garter belts, pearl strands, birdcage veils, and stockings, or curl up au naturel under the sheets. Within six weeks, each customer receives two retouched 4”x6” photos, professionally bereft of facial and bodily imperfections. Groupon holders get an additional 10% discount on extra prints, and digital negatives may be purchased for an additional fee. A preternaturally fast runner, Erica frequently travels between the Washington, DC, Baltimore, and Richmond areas, so be sure to check out her current schedule to secure your appointment at a predetermined locale.

The bed sheets ruffle as photographer Erica Tait directs a new pose and ducks behind her camera. The "between the sheets" shot is popular among her boudoir clientele, as it exposes the shoulders and leaves the rest to the imagination. This tasteful and intimate exhibition embodies Erica's work at TAIT Photography.
Her mix of black-and-white and more-vibrant images stamps a contemporary style on both her signature boudoir photography and her wedding photography. Her passion for empowering women inspired the Boudoir for the Cure event, where 100% of the proceeds are donated to breast-cancer research.
