Personally, I love having images in print.
I grew up flicking through photo albums of all my Dad's old army images (and slides!) from Singapore and Malaysia, as well as my own old family photos. There's just nothing like physically going through images and feeling that connection with something in-front of you. I also LOVE covering my walls with art. If you've ever been in the home studio, you'll find plenty of two things.
Photos and books.
This my supplied album with all my weddings and boudoir investments.
A beautiful genuine or faux leather cover (the faux leather being vegan friendly) available in a wide range of browns, blacks and tan colours. The thick pages are easy to turn, and less susceptible to damage like tearing. When you purchase your album, the price does not define a min not max amount of pages.
They are available in a few different sizes.
8 x 8 inch - perfect size for hiding away in a bedside drawer!
10 x 10 inch
11 x 14 inch - perfect wedding album size.
"Parent" or duplicate albums can also be purchased - pricing depends on the size of the album required. A duplicate smaller album can be a great idea as a gift for family - especially if they may not have been able to join the party for your wedding!
The above album on offer is a linen cover with thinner pages and is more of the style of the classic photobook.
Available in the same sizes and conditions as the leather/leatherette options. These albums are slightly cheaper so if you're stuck to a budget, or would rather a cheaper album as duplicate gift for family, these are the ones for you... and they are just as beautiful as the leather/leatherette options. You also have the choice of a wider range of colours including neon-like orange!
Now for the presentation box and print package..
8 x 10 prints in a stunning linen cover hard box - the amount of prints is a max of 30 for boudoir investments (as this is how many the box can hold comfortably). I print the images myself on quality paper, so you know your images are kept completely private.
For my wedding presentation boxes, you may have the choice of this box, or my wedding print and USB package. The wedding specific print package is a wee wooden box which also includes a USB of all your wedding images, and 30 6 x 4 inch prints of your chosen images.
The wedding and boudoir print packages aren't available for the same price and this will be communicated with the client upon request.
All of the albums and prints are available at my home studio for you to have a look at.
I don't tell people they need to purchase these items before their boudoir session - that is always a decision you can make after your session and once you've seen your images!
Some might try to tell you that your photoshoot is worth nothing without getting a product as part of the investment. For me, this is total BS. At the end of the day, you can choose to have and present your images however you want. The boudoir experience is about YOU and is an investment into YOURSELF. If you only want digitals, that is completely fine. Some people don't have the opportunity to put boudoir images on the walls. These products are in case you'd like something physical to add to your photoshoot or gift to your partner. My partner is away a lot with work, so digitals have always been a more portable and private method of gifting my own boudoir portraits :)
It all comes down to your needs and requirements - everyone is different and this can be discussed during your consult and during your session :)
