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 $129, you get a boudoir-photography package at Vivian’s Muse (a $570 total value). Each package includes the following:
- A 30-minute studio session (a $300 value)
- A 30-minute photo-review session (a $150 value)
- A CD with two 5” x 7” or 8” x 10” retouched files of two poses (a $120 value)
Amid gauzy drapes and vintage furniture, photographers captures the beauty, sensuality, and femininity of each subject during one-on-one boudoir-photography shoots. Upon arrival at the relaxing studio, subjects get into character by sipping on champagne, swaying to music, and reenacting Rocky training montages while rummaging through the studio’s stock of props, jewelry, and hair adornments. During the 30-minute sitting, the photographer coaches bodies into thoroughly seductive and flattering poses struck in front of one of five sets, be it an artistically backlit bedroom scene or a glamorous portrait. Clients should arrive sporting smoky eyes, tousled hair, and a collection of clothes that the photographer will help whittle down to two outfits.
After their shoots, models choose their two favorite images for the photographer to retouch, minimizing the appearance of any scars, blemishes, or tattoos of ex-boyfriends’ phone numbers. Each lady receives a CD with two black-and-white or color files ready to be printed or uploaded. Consult Vivian’s Muse’s FAQs for more information before scheduling steamy photo sessions.
