Launching Boudoir and Glam Sessions | Quincy Illinois Photographer

I am super excited to announce the launch of my boudoir and glam sessions in my photography services offerings for 2019. My photography business in Quincy Illinois has been rewarding this past year. I love meeting with clients and being part of their lives while I capture their Flawless Moments during family, maternity, birthday, couples, weddings and engagement sessions. This joy has grown on my a lot.

One of my passions other than being a photographer is empowerment. Woman empowerment specifically. just the same as I have a love and preference to shoot and capture the beauty of the woman’s body with maternity sessions in and around Quincy Illinois. I now have found another type of photography session to love. Boudoir and glam.

Both boudoir and glam sessions allow me to capture a woman’s beauty. It allows me to show other women how beautiful they are inside and out. Boudoir is the sensual side of self love. Glam is the formal side of self love. Both of these session types can also be captured while pregnant. This new addition to my session offerings will be separated by calling it The Secrets of Flawless Moments.

I am so ecstatic to offer boudoir sessions and glam sessions in Quincy Illinois. A full session for both of these types will include 2 hrs of shooting time, up to 3 outfit changes, professional hair and makeup, and any travel fees for up to 3 hrs from Quincy Illinois.

Mini boudoir or glam sessions will be 30 min and include 1 outfit selection. Periodically I will offer themed sessions, promotions, and session marathons on location throughout the mid-west.

Albums with All Portrait Sessions

I am working hard to set Flawless Moments Photography apart from other photographers in and around Quincy, Illinois. One of the biggest changes I will be making in 2019 will be the inclusion of an album with all portrait sessions.

I am one to believe that you should treasure all of your photos, not just the ones that you love the most and place on your wall. This is why starting January of 2019 I will be including a album with all of the edited images from each session with Flawless Moments Photography. Delivering an album to each of my clients provides them with the ease of having all the images instead of getting those digital files that all too often stay left on a disk or usb somewhere.

The beautiful album that will be included in my session fees will be an 8x8 hard back album. Clients will be able to choose a custom image for the front if they wish. Clients will also be able to choose custom words to have printed down the spine. The album that will be included in the sessions will also have 20 hard layflat pages. This will provide enough room to fit all of the images from any of these types of sessions.

The albums that I will provide to Flawless Moments Photography clients will be included in the session fee for the following session types:

  • Cake Smash & Splash Sessions

  • Family Sessions

  • Couples or Engagement Sessions

  • Maternity Session

  • Fresh 48 Sessions

  • Senior Sessions

  • Lifestyle Sessions

  • and any other general sessions

Family Photo Session at Wyconda State Park, Mo {Quincy Il Family Photographer}

The beautiful late at the Wyconda State Park in Missouri is so perfect for family photography sessions. There are several areas to shoot at within the park. Tempest and Ivey choose this location because it was not a far drive from Quincy Illinois.

Tempest took advantage of my pay your age sale that I held for just about 24 hours. She booked the session for her and her 5 year old daughter. They are the most adorable mommy and daughter that I have seen. I enjoyed spending the morning with them during the photo session.

I loved their outfit choices. Tempestt took advantage of this session and wore fall inspired outfits what were coordinated perfectly. I would highly suggests their outfits in a what to wear guide.

Here are a few of my favorite images from the session.

Your Portraits- Printed on Metal!

It seems like everyone has a canvas in their home. If you talk to someone about a canvas they know exactly what you are talking about. That's why I'm excited to tell everyone about beautiful high quality archival metals! Yes, you heard me right. You can now get your family portraits printed on beautiful metal. This is the perfect way to display your any of your portraits on the wall just like this one from a family portrait session.

I am in love with the look of these new products! These metal wall art is something you don't see everyday here in Quincy Illinois. Why not step out of the box and be different?

You can display these unique hi gloss art option in 3 ways. You can have the metal prints displayed vertically and horizontally with a magnet mounted to the back for sizes 4x4 through 8x10. Alternately you can choose to display your metal prints 4x4 through 11x14 with metal easel to place them on your desk or another flat surface.  My favorite way to display these metal prints is on the wall with a float mount. No frame is needed. The mount on the back creates a floating appearance when you hang the metal print on the wall.

I think these metal prints will look good as a single portrait, in a metal collage of several sizes or even mixed up on a collage wall. I am excited to have these as options to offer my clients. If you are interested in ordering your portraits as a metal print just let me know! 

 

Mark Twain Lake Missouri Maternity Session

I always want to find the most beautiful spots for all of my sessions in the Midwest. I found the perfect spot at the Mark Twain Lake in Missouri for a maternity session with Nalayja.

Nalayja contacted me about a styled maternity session. She wanted the glam treatment. Whit my styled maternity session I create a vision. When conveying her vision to me about her maternity session, Nalayja told me she wanted a dress that had a long flowy train. She couldn't make up her mind if she wanted an open belly or a mermaid style dress. When I showed her the Monroe dress from Chicaboo, she was excited and I knew it was the perfect dress. 

On our shoot date Nalayja arrived at my home around 8am. I had her hair curled and a small amount of makeup applied. Then she put on her beautiful maternity gown from Chicaboo.

I also picked up a pair of gold leaf earrings, and a head crown to match and gold nail polish for Nalayja that she wore during her maternity session at Mark Twain Lake.

Nalayja wanted something different for her maternity session. I knew that the Mark Twain Lake in Missouri had some of the most beautiful scenery and chose this location. She is simply glowing in each and every one of her maternity photos.

Launching My Site + Self Portraits

It has been a while since I wrote a blog post of any kind. And this will be the first blog post I have ever written here on Flawless Moments. But I'm gonna dive right into this. 

I had a daydream that I am making come true. Each and every person who has hired me for photography all over the Midwest has helped make my daydream come true. And I thank you. 

I took a few days to create and design this site to showcase my work, clients, and to share information. It's not perfect, but neither are you or I. In creating this site, I needed to write a bio to tell you who I am and what I am all about. I guess writing about my self and Flawless Moments Photography was the easy part because I also needed to post a photo so you can put a face with the name. I don't usually slow down enough to allow anyone to capture me with the camera. So this morning I got up bright and early and curled up my hair and put some make up on. I set up the tripod and practiced a few poses.

I can't tell you when the last time I did self portraits. I did't think it would be very hard. Well, I was wrong. I have a cheap trigger remote that I bought off of Amazon that doesn't work too well. I'm glad I'm finding out about this before I ever used it in a client session.

I am just like clients, I feel awkward in front of the camera. But I had to just close my eyes and think of everything I tell the client to think about. Relax, breath, go to my happy place in my mind. 

I knew that I wanted to have my self portraits reflect me and my personality. I wanted to convey my love for photography and the art. Since I have my watercolor camera tattoo on my arm, I knew it should be visible in my self portraits. 

Watercolor camera tattoo

This tattoo is a symbol that I wear my passion for photography on my sleeve. It s a commitment to the art. I could not have asked for a more perfect watercolor camera tattoo when I requested the tattoo artist to create this piece of artwork. 

Now that the first post is done, I can move on to the next post. Oh an now you have a face to put with the Flawless Moments name. Don't forget to stop and read my about me page before you leave.
