Waiting for our training guide...

Hi everyone! We wanted to let you all know that we are still waiting to receive our bad-ass training guides from our publishing company. As soon as they arrive, we will let you know! (We were hoping to ship them out yesterday, but apparently things are a little behind schedule w/ the holidays and such... so they'll be shipping out in January). So sorry for the delay!!! We just found this Andy Warhol poster, and thought it was relevant to our post today... We are SOOO excited to get the first copy in our hands!!! Yes, it will be worth the wait! 50+ pages of tips, ideas, inspiration, and photos... showing how our boudoir business has become a success. On another note, if you'd like to receive our e-newsletter, sign up on our contact page at

So if you're wondering whether we're actual "divas" (in the high-maintenance meaning of the word)... the answer is no... definitely not! :) Both Marissa and I are low-maintenance, easy-going-kind-of-gals. We picked the "Boudoir Divas" name because we wanted something fun, original, and catchy. But when it comes right down to it, I'd have to say that the best word to describe us would be "dorks" rather than "divas." :) Seriously. Need proof? Just take a look at the following dorky photos that we took at Disneyland this past weekend... (hey, at least we have a good time!) Marissa kissing Walt Disney... Yep, definitely dorks... Can you tell that we're excited about being at the "happiest place on earth"? We are SO looking forward to our upcoming workshops!!! (First one is coming up in Jan!) If you want to come out and have a little fun w/ us dorky gals, sign up on our website... we'd love to meet you and talk about boudoir photography with you! xoxo- the "boudoir divas" :)

Giving back...

We've started a new donation program with our Woman Captured clients, and thought we'd share about it here, with all of you professional photogs. It's not a marketing strategy... just a simple, small way to give back and to have a positive impact on the world. We are so blessed, and we want to do whatever we can to help others. And... supporting girls in crisis is something we strongly believe in! Anyway, just thought we would share what we're doing (because we're SO excited about it!!!). CLICK HERE to read more about it on our WC blog.
