WPPI 2016 Recap & SALE! Free Boudoir Goodies too!

By | Sales & Contests, Speaking Programs | No Comments

A little recap and then more info about free boudoir photography goodies….

Things have certainly changed at WPPI, a few years back we were the only ones talking about boudoir photography, now it’s all the rage, and we are honored to still be a part of it. WPPI, as always, was full of some seriously good, door opening, exciting information for those of us who dream of pushing the limits with our photography business. To think that I got to speak about what K and I do, the business that we have made, it feels… just good. Good that the hours we have spent on business and marketing and what we have learned in those sometimes long, sometimes difficult hours gets to be shared with others and maybe make a difference in their dreams. Save them some trouble. Like I said, it just makes us feel the warm and fuzzies.

Now there were some more difficult moments. And that was speaking WITHOUT Kimberlee! I know. WHOA. Could you imagine such a thing? I couldn’t, seriously it was hard. But it was for an exceptional reason, Maelee. Get to know Maelee, this gorgeous bundle of joy here on K’s beautiful post.

Ok so now I leave you with some photos people took of the presentation and tagged us @theboudoirdivas.com on Instagram but more importantly I leave you with free boudoir goodies…

Thank you so much to all of you who came out to our platform class. I saw so many familiar faces and it always feels like a fun boudoir high school reunion or something. And in VEGAS no less!

She’s here!

By | Personal | No Comments

Hi everyone! K here today – just wanted to drop in and write a quick post to let you all know that we have a new ‘Baby Diva’ here. My new baby girl arrived this past week and I am already SO in love. A week later than her due date, she entered the world with just 4.5 hours of labor, start to finish. It was an intense day but gosh she is SO worth every moment. She’s such a precious little thing (although, 9lbs 2oz isn’t SO little), and she is already melting our hearts. It is incredible to see how your heart can expand and find room in it to love another baby. Daddy, big sis, big brother, and I are all loving having her home and figuring out our new normal. Thanks to all of you who have already sent over sweet notes on social media! Being a mom + business owner at the same time is something I’m still learning how to maneuver – it has been such a fun/crazy/hectic juggling adventure these past 2 years, and I feel like I’m going to have to learn all over again to get into my ‘groove’ with a toddler and a newborn. But I am super excited about this new stage of life, and also looking forward to new adventures and projects on the horizon with the Boudoir Divas!

We are speaking at WPPI 2016

By | Speaking Programs | No Comments

Holy moly we, The Boudoir Divas, are STOKED to let you all know that we are speaking at WPPI March 6, 2016 at 12pm! Yippee! Two things, first, I made a really lame video to let you know about said speaking thingy as we have a lot of thoughts on this, that leave us in turn wanting YOUR thoughts on this…..

Second, we made a Facebook  group so that we can see who’s planning on coming, pick your brain on boudoir photography stuffts, AND stay in touch after the event. Maybe even orchestrate a time for us all to meet up in Vegas and hang out. WPPI is by far one of the most educational and inspiring photography events. Our business and our dreams would never be as big as they are if it weren’t for this stellar convention. If you are on the fence about going we say DO IT!!!!

Here’s the official description of our platform class, however we really want to tailor it to specifically what you guys want. So please share your thoughts with us.

The Boudoir Divas studio in San Diego has two to three shoots booked every day, five days a week. But getting to this point in an ever-changing industry has been no easy feat. Marissa & Kimberlee will share what has and hasn’t worked to keep clients booking while remaining highly profitable. Their candid advice should be helpful for both boutique and high-volume businesses alike. – See more at or pre-board for the class to save your seat by clicking here.

 

Our business segment is ready to watch….

So if you follow us, you know that our Online Workshop was launched just last month. This means that you have instant access to all the content that we’ve taught at highly successful workshops here in San Diego (which we’ve recent;y replaced with our more intensive 5 day Retreats). We have just uploaded the boudoir business portion for all of our online attendees to watch, one of many, and we wanted to give those of you who are mulling over joining a “sneak peek” into this VERY informative section. This point we drive home more than any other point; “you could be the most sought after photographer on the planet, with gobs of money coming in, but if your money making machine isn’t tuned in, you could very well make more money sitting on your couch watching soap operas everyday.” We go through at length how to tune that in and how to write yourself a paycheck every month.
