Big Boudoir Announcement!

As 2012 officially comes to a close, I have to say that I am really looking forward to 2013 because I’ve got a couple of big announcements to make! Unfortunately, one of those announcements will have to wait until after the beginning of the year (sorry!), but I am very excited to be able to make the other announcement today.

Beginning January 6, 2013, I will be holding regular bi-monthly Boudoir Day events on the first and third Sunday of EVERY month! This means that I will be dedicating these particular Sundays exclusively to photographing Boudoir sessions, AND these are the only two days per month that on-site professional hair and makeup services will be available at my studio for your convenience. If you are not able to schedule your appointment on the first or third Sunday of any month, or if you do not wish to have professional hair and makeup services, never fear! You may still book a private Boudoir session on any day of the week or on a different weekend, as long as my schedule permits.

I am also pleased to announce that the professional hair and makeup artists who will be working with me next year are Sarah Nenni and Stacy Lee Elwood! I will be introducing these lovely ladies more formally in the near future, complete with “Before” and “After” photos from a couple of Boudoir sessions that I am shooting this weekend. So, be sure to stay tuned to learn more about Sarah and Stacy and to see actual examples of their fabulous work in a future blog.

In the meantime, as mentioned above, the first Boudoir Day event of the year is going to be on January 6, 2012, followed by another on January 20, 2012. The sitting fee is $200 and includes the following:
  • Private studio photo session with Courtney Bell (up to 2 hours of photography )
  • Up to 3 different outfits
  • Bring any props you’d like to give your photos that extra personal touch, or choose from a selection of props and/or furniture at the studio
  • All images professionally edited and re-touched, according to YOUR specifications, exclusively by Courtney Bell (no one else will see your images)
  • Your 20 final images will be posted in a password-protected online gallery, from which you may order prints directly
  • Seven of your favorite, full-resolution images will be given to you on a disc or emailed directly to you ($20 for each additional image. Copyright release available for an additional $100.)
There will only be five appointment times available for each Boudoir Day, so please try to book your appointment as early as possible. In order to reserve your appointment time, a non-refundable deposit of $50 will need to be made at the time of booking. The balance of $150 will be due on the day of your photo session.

*Please note that professional hair and makeup services ARE NOT INCLUDED in your sitting fee, and you will need to pay Sarah and Stacy for their services separately ($25 each) on the day of your session.

I also offer Boudoir Parties at a discounted rate if you are able to bring 3 or more of your girlfriends with you on any day of the week other than one of the regularly scheduled Boudoir Days. (Please click here for details.) If you and your girlfriends would also like on-site professional hair and makeup services for your Boudoir Party, please try to schedule least three weeks in advance in order to allow Sarah and Stacy time to adjust their schedules accordingly.

Call or email today to reserve your appointment time for Boudoir Day, 1/6/12! The best way to reach me is by email at, but you may also call (304) 522-7747 (Monday through Friday after 7:00 p.m., or on the weekends is best).
