    Hey Ladies...just wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing what your boudoir sessions with a book ended up costing? Trying to figure out if the price I've been given is a good one! Too me it seems like too much!

      I paid $400 for my shots She took about 350 shots in as many outfits as I wanted. Hair and make-up was a steal at $50. At the end she included 20 shots done about 10 different ways, B&W, sepia, faded etc on a CD, she also included a slide show with music of my choice.
      I did not get the book from her becuase it was out of my budget, but I chose her becuse she would give me the cd of high res shots. I made my own book for $50. Not nearly as fabulous as she would have done, but I was over budget already.
      I have to say it was worth every penny!!
      These prices were a little lower than the majority in my area. Most were $500+.

        The Boudoir photographer I am looking at charges $300 for the session with $150 of that as credit to prints.
        I'm choosing not to get the book, but it is $500 to order.

            $425 with 50 edited shots. Make up was $100 extra, I had my hair done before I arrived. I chose not to purchase a book. I created my own on mypublisher.com I LOVED the pictures and the way the book came out! Worth every single cent!

              T, I'm using Jen too! So excited! Did your shoot start at 10? Where/what time did you get your hair done before? I sort of wanted to get mine done but I'm worried about timing & getting there (have to get a zipcar to get there).

                Thanks ladies...it's nice to know what the pricing is out there! For those that made their own books...where did you do it through and did you use touched up prints?

                      I had my hair done the night before and slept very carefully lol. My shoot was supposed to start at 11:00, but I was super late. You will enjoy your shoot! She was wonderful to work with.
