Why are professional boudoir photographers so expensive?

If you ask yourself why Photographers "charge so much" for shooting... Well, they don't just snap pictures, they create professional, high quality photographs--art. You're not just paying for the actual photographs, you're also paying for time (and don't forget about the editing time after your shoot)expertise and quality.

Also, Pro photographers don't get paid vacation, they don't get paid sick days, they don't get bonuses for outstanding performances nor for Christmas. They don't have insurance plans nor do they qualify for unemployment. They sometimes sacrifice their family on special days so that they can bring happiness to others. Illness or personal affairs are not excuses for a bad shooting or staying home. So next time you think about the prices, remember that Photographers are Photographers because of the love of photography, but that love alone doesn't pay bills.

Bad Girl Boudoir's Shoe Closet Collection! // Sexy Heels for your Boudoir Photoshoot

Sexy high heels and pinup shoes available at your fingertips! Bad Girl Boudoir has a growing collection of hot shoes ideal for the boudoir or pinup photoshoot!

Don't have any sexy high heels? Feel free to use the list below to help plan out your outfits! We will have all of these shoes available for you to borrow at your photoshoot! We use these shoes exclusively for photoshoots only that way the shoes stay nice, clean and new looking! And the bottoms are clean too! No club floor goo... hehe

Also, keep in mind, since you won't be walking around in these (they are just for photo purposes), they don't necessarily need to be the correct size for you to use them. For example, if you normally wear a size 7, the size 8 shoes will still work and look right for the photoshoot.

Sexy Boudoir Photobook // The Perfect Sexy Gift!

BGB's premium, hard cover photobooks are hand crafted and printed on real photographic silver-halide paper with a lustre finish, bright saturated colors and excellent flash-tones. And the best part is that BGB’s layouts are completely customizable! I personally design each layout myself. In the photo below, you can see our top three most popular cover designs.

Left: The Pattern-style Cover (less conspicuous).
Middle: The Gift-style Cover (photo plus personalized message).
Right: The Photo-style Cover (more artistic and sensual, especially with a black and white photo).

The inside spreads are designed incorporating a variety of layout designs, some pages allowing for several photos framed with decorative patterns, while other pages can include one, large photo across the whole spread. The lay-flat design of the book allows for a virtually non-existent center gutter, which doesn't interfere with one photo printed across both pages.

Also, (in case there is any confusion with the different package's photobooks)... the upgraded, larger Peep Show Photobooks that are included in The Supermodel Package are designed with the same layout design approach. You can see some sample photos of the inside layout design on BGB's Gallery Page, click the Peep Show Photobooks & Products Button!

Fan Art // Bad Girl Boudoir Inspired Painting by Katrina Harrison

Check out these awesome paintings and sketch by Katrina Harrison! I LOVE getting fan art! It inspires me to pick up the paint brush again. I'm usually so busy with my photography that I never get the time to paint anymore. :( I think I will make it happen for the new year...
