Boudoir is for the Bedroom

By | Boudoir Gear & More, Sales & Contests | No Comments

We TRULY believe that you need to SHOW your clients what you want to SELL! Our boutique used to be very over-loaded with every kind of product we could find for our clients… and it was just way too much. Don’t overwhelm your clients – just choose those products that YOU love, and have samples to show your clients! We have chosen our favorite albums, large prints, canvas prints, & framed art to showcase in our boutique. (If you want details on exactly what we have in there and where we get all of our products, be sure to sign up for our Online Boudoir Workshop – we’ll be going over all of that and MUCH MORE)!

Through the years, we’ve have a lot of photographers ask us whether we sell large prints and canvases – and the answer is YES! What better way to show off such a fun experience, than by hanging a large print in your bedroom, bathroom, or walk-in closet? In our opinion, we feel like there are so many beautiful images that would make such a perfect, classy fine art piece for a couple to showcase and hang up… and many of our clients agree! We say that “Boudoir is for the Bedroom™”! So why not try it out? Get a few of your favorite images printed large, put on canvas, and framed – and then show them to your clients so they can imagine having a piece of artwork like that in their own homes.

And to go along with this blog post, we are doing a fun CONTEST for you all…. winner chosen on FRIDAY of this week! The winner will receive a complimentary 16×20 print from us! All you have to do is ‘like’ The Boudoir Divas Facebook page & the Bay Photo Lab​ page, and share this post, OR share a shot of your studio’s ‘viewing’ area or boutique (wherever it is that you show off your favorite products). Make sure you tag us too, so we’ll see your post! (If you share on instagram, use #theboudoirdivas so we’ll see it there too). We’ll do a drawing and choose one winner on Friday!

Lastly, we wanted to give you a quick little ‘sneak peek’ inside our boutique, at our San Diego studio – so you can have a glimpse of the vibe in there and how we display and share our favorite products. Enjoy!

We also want to give a huge thank you to Bay Photo for being the BEST lab in the universe, and for always providing us with the most amazing products, highest quality, and absolute best customer service. We love you, Bay! 🙂 If you don’t have a lab yet, or if you aren’t 100% satisfied with your current lab, we highly recommend going with Bay. If you want to try them out, make sure you sign up as a new user to get 25% off your first order! And then check out their SPECIALS page – they are always running awesome deals, so that if you DO need to get a few new samples for your studio, keep an eye out and order when a sale or special comes up!

The Best Photo Lab in the UNIVERSE

By | Boudoir Gear & More, Boudoir Tips | No Comments

Goodmorning photog friends, and happy Monday! K here today, starting off the morning with my cup of (half decaf) coffee, a Christmas playlist, and my beautiful Christmas tree sparkling in the corner. I love this season! But that’s beside the point. Today I wanted to share an FAQ. We recently got the following email from a fellow photographer; I liked her question and thought it would be helpful to post our answer here on the blog!

“Hello, my name is Katie my fiance and I are wedding photographers and I’m currently breaking into boudoir. I watched your top ten on youtube it was very helpful – thank you. I have two questions if you dont’ mind. What print lab do you guys use and what web hosting? Thanks a bunch!”

which-lab
Thanks for your email, Katie. So first of all, we have used Bay Photo for MANY years, and think they are absolutely, hands-down, the BEST photo lab in the universe! We use Bay for almost ALL of our boudoir products that we offer our clients. Here are just a few of them…
favorite-boudoir-products
We order all of our clients’ prints through Bay, as well as the 8×8 & 5×7 prints that we include in our basic books that you see here. We also order our calendars, fine art canvas prints, thin wrap prints, metal prints, and framed images through them. On top of ALL of these products that we offer our clients, we ALSO order a ton of awesome products through Bay Photo for marketing – such as their beautiful hard cover press printed books, and press printed postcards, business cards, & trifold cards. So as you can see, we are speaking from experience here. We truly do love Bay Photo and think they are the BEST LAB IN THE UNIVERSE. 🙂

Also, if you’re looking to run a special for your boudoir clients right now before the holidays, we recommend that you take advantage of the Bay Photo sale happening right now – 10% off all framed prints (through Dec 12, 2013).
framed photo prints for christmas
We like to tell our clients that ‘Boudoir is for the Bedroom’ – and then we sell our beautiful framed boudoir art prints for them to display in their bedroom, master bathroom, or walk-in closets.

what-hosting
So for hosting – we use HOST GATOR. It’s easy to set-up, and super affordable!
boudoir website tips
Don’t have much more to say on that topic; it’s pretty straight-forward. 🙂 But if you want to know more about creating or revamping your website, we do have a lot to say about that in our article: Top Website Tips for Boudoir Photographers. So go check it out!

Oh, and lastly, if you haven’t seen our Top Ten Marketing Tips for Boudoir that Katie mentioned in her email to us, here’s that FREE WEBINAR for you right here!

boudoir backdrop ideas

We get asked all the time, “so how do you create your sets?”

Well that’s kinda of a complicated answer actually. You see our sets are put together by all kinds of different components. We really like our sets to be three dimensional, to have layers so you feel like you were in a very cool room, or in a mysterious location. Most of the pieces are from garage sales, antique stores, flea markets and thrift stores. Another key factor is my mom, as she loves to frequent all these places and find little gems for us, then she reports back to us, sometimes even re-upholstering items for us. But as we mentioned, we use many, many ingredients, and one of those common ingredients we seem to use A LOT is a drop it MODERN backdrop. Sometimes it’s used as the fancy looking wallpaper backdrop, sometimes it becomes the hip looking floor, or sometimes it just used as a nice little pop like this shot above. Over the years our obsession with drop it MODERN has led them to ask us to pass on some killer deals to you, as they see that question get asked over and over on our social sites, “where do you get your cool boudoir sets?” So they gave us this little goodie to give to all you boudoir photogs…….a $25 off discount code! YES PLEASE!

So maybe it’s time for a new boudoir backdrop … yes? ‘Cause it’s all about NEW at drop it MODERN! They have so many cool new options for us photographers…..

From fresh new prints to the new simple solids, there’s seriously a backdrop for every style and genre, especially boudoir photography. Be sure to check out ‘Gatsby’ in 8 different painted glitters. Yes GLITTER!

Also back in stock are the 2 best damn backdrops in the biz; ‘Spangled’ and ‘Mermaid’! The most amazing sequins lined drops in Gold and Silver. They’re a studio MUST! See for yourself in our shots below with the Spangled Gold Backdrop.

And since everyone loves a deal, drop it MODERN has an entire section dedicated to ‘DEALS’! Some backdrops are priced as low as $30, WOW. Obviously there are plenty of backdrop companies to chose from but no one offers the amazing quality, prices, and crazy fast delivery like drop it MODERN. Their backdrops are built to last through all of our in-studio or on-location destination boudoir photos shoots, and we put them through the ringer, haha.
