Just wanted to post this for any Ottawa ladies thinking about boudoir photos.
I had my boudoir session yesterday with Bella Stella Ottawa Wedding and Boudoir Photographer - Bella Stella Photography and it went super well! Julie is so great to work with, she is very friendly and easy-going but also she is extremely professional and will be as discreet as you want her to be. She also knows her stuff very well, she was very particular about lighting and had a bunch of equipment with her to make sure the lighting was right, and she has tons of ideas for poses. Overall, she definitely surpassed my expectations. Based on my experience so far I would highly recommend her to everyone.
The best part is her prices are FABULOUS! I did a marathon session and it was 100$ for a 1 hour session in a nice hotel suite, 4x6 copy of all the best images, private website to view your images, and a CD of web resolution (approx 4x6) of all images and a 25$ print credit. A photobook was an extra 150$ (125$ using print credit).
If you do a regular (non-marathon) session in her home it's 150$, but you get 2 hours so more photos and the extra time will allow for more outfits. Also the print credit is 50$ instead of 25$.
She's gotten very busy lately as a result of being mentioned on the cdn forum Weddingbells, so if you are interested you should book her soon.
Oh yeah, and she does Destination Weddings too, I saw on her site she charge 750$ cdn plus travel costs and that includes an engagement shoot and TTD!

I think I'm going to have to get in on one of her Marathons this summer. I'm a little nervous but it helps knowing you had a positive experience. Thanks!

Thanks for posting your experience! I think that I will end up using her later in the year. I wanted to do it sooner and I'm sorry that I couldn't get in on the session with you! I'm still trying to get into a bit better shape and my MOH and best guy friend are getting married next month so money is tight right now (FH and I are both in the wedding party!). Maybe I'll book something soon for later in the year though.
