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.
$119 for a Burlesque Bombshell photo-shoot package (a $389 value), which includes:
- A 60-minute, closed-set photo shoot with choice of scene

- Light hors d’oeuvres

As subjects invite The Shoot’s artistic team into the location of their choice, a squad of beauty professionals whisks them away for a pinup-inspired primping session, lavishing Burlesque Bombshell customers with a subtle tousling while Bubbly Beauties bask in a full flatironing or don flirtatious curls. A full makeup application, with brow contouring or lash extensions in Bubbly Beauty packages, readies faces for the spotlight, freeing patrons to choose one or two scenes, respectively, from a slate of seven boudoir-inspired backdrops decorating a bedroom, a bathtub, or a favorite overstuffed sweater drawer. Subjects can add variety to their upcoming session by donning a number of their favorite ensembles, whereas Bubbly Beauty patrons transform day looks into evening elegance with a midshoot eye-shadow change.
Under the guidance of a professional photographer, centerfolds channel their inner vixen, posing seductively with custom props to flaunt their best angle or most alluring Charlie Chaplin impersonation. Finally, pinup models savor bubbly champagne and light finger food as specialists retouch and finish the photos, burning the entire shoot to CD while bestowing Burlesque Bombshell customers with one 8”x10” and two 5”x7” prints and Bubbly Beauty patrons with two 8”x10” and three 5”x7” prints. This Groupon is valid within 30 minutes of Tallahassee; residences outside the service area will be charged an extra fee.<p>
The Shoot: The Boudoir Collection
Danielle Ardister and her crew of glam gurus give a nod to the 1950s by acquainting everyday women with their inner pinup girl and capturing this transformation through tasteful boudoir portraits. During each closed-set shoot, centerfolds bask in pampering enhancement with makeup and hairstyling by veteran professionals before sauntering onto one of seven themed sets. Professional photographers then frame and capture their masterpieces, offering seasoned guidance on poses and expressions while pinup beauties bat their lashes at the camera. Finally, digital artisans retouch and print portraits, bestowing subjects with a thoughtful gift for a special someone or a foolproof ID for time-travel missions to woo Harry Truman.
