    oh yes definitely look into group sessions!! My sister and I had seen some of the work from Tait photography at the show in september and even though I wasn't thinking of doing a boudoir session before, my sister was so excited (she's been married for like 9 years!) and can convince me to do absolutely anything. Sometimes it sucks loving your sister so much hahahaha!!! Anyways, we'd been thinking of getting some girlfriends together to try and book a marathon session, but never followed through on getting the details or anything so at least the two of us would definitely be interested!

    Also, for putting a book together, I have been hunting around all the applications on my new Mac and it looks like through the photo application on there you can put together a book (soft cover and/or hard cover) all by yourself using photos that are on your computer - or of course a disk of proofs from a photographer!?!? I think I'm going to use this application once we get our wedding photos since they'll be edited already and on a cd.

      Hey all!! I've been doing a lot of research on Boudoir here in Calgary, and there is a gal that one of the Calgary BDW'ers used and the pics are posted somewhere and they looked really good: Sarah Pukin, she'll do it in your home, and I think she may be able to set up a studio session as well - although she prefers in your own home...

      I think her pkgs started at around $300 and included photos on a cd...but now her prices are not posted on her website so I'm not too sure - the other BDW'er got the $400 pkg and hair and makeup were a good deal too, I think she said like $50??

      I've also been talking to an Edmonton Photog who said she'd be able to come to Calgary if 3 or 4 of us wanted to do a shoot, the only prob is we'd have to either pay to use a hotel room or she has a designer friend that said we could use her home for a fee...hair and makeup is extra, $100 - $150
      her website: she would charge $350, includes a cd and her traveling...

          Hey

          Tait is AWESOME!!! The sit in fee is 150 (but you get a 50 dollar discount for booking together) They have marathons at hotel Arts, I think one is coming up really soon. When I looked into it, it was going to be $500.00 and thats with the session fee, hair & makeup and a photobook.

          Nadine, Right now it is of both of us together. Thats the problem, I cant think of a song together. Maybe I should show us growing up seperate and then have us together when older ...that would make it ALOT easier.

          Thanks for the suggestions :)

            Ok so Tait has upcoming dates on Jan 29th, Feb 5th and 6th...different times avail,
            $150 for the sitting fee, $80 for hair and makeup (good deal), and if you want to pre-order a book they start at $250 (normally $300)...
            SO if you don't pre order the book, what do you get?? Do you get a CD with some images on it?? does anyone know??

              Well maybe because I have NO IDEA about hair and makeup costs, or about other photographers, but the $500 sounds a little pricey?? But I guess with the photobook added in that's where you're getting a lot of extra dollars added in. LOL! Sometimes I just don't know the prices of things so if everyone says it's good then I'll just have to believe you!

              And you know what's funny, my sister already had me so convinced about this that a few months ago, i'd already bought a women's Boston Bruins hockey jersey to wear since that's his all-time favourite team! It's still sitting in the box in my closet so that he can't get snoopy if he ever noticed it in there

                SUZY! Quit writing more info while I'm writing LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                And yes, if anyone can answer whether or not we at least get all our images on a cd then that would help my decision IMMENSELY!!!!

                Also, I can't look up anything on the Tait boudoir site because my work filter blocks my access... so thank you to anyone who is able to look up the details for us!!!

                PLUS - if we had enough girls together to book our own marathon session (I have no idea how many that is!) then it would be a great excuse for us to have our Calgary get-together that has been mentioned so many times :)

                  HAhahaha, I just pm'd you twice!! lol
                  Gotta get to the gym, so if you find out any info let me know....but it seems to me in my research you don't get a disc from tait for the $150...not sure hopefully someone can figure that out, because the less expensive the better, plus I can do my own album!

                    I remember talking to tait when i thought of doing a BD shoot (I never ended up doing one.. my hubby gets live BD instead haha) and that $150 definitely does not include the disc. I think in the end to get what I would have wanted it would have been around $500 or just under.

                      Heres what I read off her website:
                      Marathon sessions include 150+ proofs in a digital online gallery that is password protected. Digital negatives/files may be purchased for an additional fee. The proofs and files on the digital negative discs are not retouched. However all images ordered as prints or included in an album incluse retouching at no additional cost. There are several different album options which begin at $250.00 and prints start @ $20.00
