Alright, ladies – I have a treat for you. For the past couple of months, I have been telling you that boudoir isn’t only for women that come in one shape or size. Now I’m going to prove it. Meet Heidi, one of my SUPER beautiful (and yet curvy) clients of the January boudoir marathon. Heidi was nervous at the prospect of attempting a boudoir session, but she also knew that her husband would be incredibly surprised and LOVE the images. Her husband loves her for who she is and sees her as the gorgeous woman he married, so why should she not invest in such a gift for his Valentine’s Day present?! And as Heidi revealed to me when I asked if I could show her images, “I have my book on display. Never thought I would show it but you captured my personality so well and made me feel like a beautiful woman.” Now THAT is what boudoir is about, ladies!
And by the way, Heidi’s husband DID love the album she invested in.

This is the final blog post in the boudoir series from January. I have been inspired by my weekend, and I feel that another boudoir marathon weekend will be necessary in July. Many ladies have shown interest in an outdoor session, so I will be posting more information shortly on summer sessions. Included will be multiple package options, discounts for early bookings and referrals, and every package will include hair and makeup. Time slots will fill quickly, so don’t hesitate to put a deposit down when registration opens in order to reserve yours right away.
Of all the ladies I worked with during the boudoir marathon, I have to say that Isabel’s was the most fun. I did enjoy every single session, but Isabel had a playfulness about her that became extremely apparent in her images. She gathered up all the courage she had, enjoyed getting dolled up, and rocked this session like a true model. We joked about the images being for her husband for Valentine’s Day (“Not really – I’m doing them for ME!”), and she approached the session like it was an adventure. It was almost effortless to get an amazing shot of this girl, which is why I saved her for last. Thank you for all of your sweet smiles, fun poses, and your carefree personality, Isabel. I am so glad you were a part of my weekend!

One of the biggest excuses I hear from women for not scheduling their boudoir sessions is that they are not happy with their bodies. I made it a point to emphasize that my boudoir marathon weekend would include ladies of all sizes who wanted to spice things up for their partner. I have to stop here and say that I have received some very nice messages from some VERY happy husbands. Ladies, they love the pictures, I assure you.
My job is to focus less on details and areas of the body that my client likes the least, and maximize those that are best to showcase. Lauren spelled out for me the concerns she had about her body. She revealed to me what areas she and her husband loved the most. Together, Lauren and I came up with a session full of hotness for her and her husband to enjoy.
Boudoir is about dressing up, letting loose, and stepping out of your daily roles in order to focus on YOU. Lauren is a mommy, a wife, a sister, friend… She works hard to take care of her family’s needs and neglects her own if necessary. For a couple of hours, Lauren instead focused on feeling beautiful. Enjoy her results!

Now that I have taken two months off from blogging, I think it’s probably time to get back into the swing of things. And what better way to kick off an amazing new year than to blog boudoir sessions from the marathon in January?! I will be featuring three ladies over the next few days who were kind enough to share their images with all of you.
I have to say that I never imagined that this boudoir weekend would turn out to be so fun and fulfilling. Stepping away from weddings and family sessions for a moment in order to focus on the beauty of the female body was refreshing. Although every single girl was self-conscious, I think they were all beautiful. We will always find things we hate about our bodies, and we will always think that there is someone prettier out there. However, there is nothing more beautiful than a strong, confident woman. I applaud these ladies for stepping out of their boxes, baring the outward expression of their inner beauty, and giving themselves and their partners a gift that can’t be replaced.
Gold was very nervous. She wanted these images in order to please her husband, and I think she wanted them to please herself too. I love how exotic she is, with her gorgeous eyes and long, dark hair. Although it was hard for her to get comfortable in front of the camera, I feel that Gold remained cool and positive, resulting in some beautiful images. Feel free to leave her some love in the comments below!

It always helps to bring a friend to a boudoir session. Gold’s friend Priscilla helped lace her up, give her encouragement, and even threw out ideas to try. I loved having her there!
This image has to be my absolute favorite from the whole session. I feel that this is the moment that Gold let loose and felt a little more free and playful.
Thank you for being a part of my weekend, Gold. Thank you for all of your encouragement, and for your confidence in me and my abilities. You shine in these pictures, and I have never seen you look more beautiful!

As many wedding photographers know, each wedding season is different from the last. One date in September may be in high demand one year, while a date in May might be popular the next. This year, August is my dry spot. Hey, prospective brides – I understand! Who wants to get married in the August heat anyway?! So due to my light August schedule, I am running a contest from now until August 8th at midnight. To enter, send me a message with a reason why I should choose you as the lucky winner of one August evening photo session. In this situation, creativity definitely counts! I will be sending the submissions anonymously to a panel of judges who will choose the most convincing story as the winner. And now for the rules…
- Offer limited to persons who “like” Trizza Grantham Photography on Facebook
- You must intend to take advantage of the offer in the month of August
- Session must take place within 50 miles of the Sacramento area
- Please don’t be stingy – tell all of your friends!

If the title of this blog seems kind of odd, that was my intention. This is “The Andrea” boudoir session because on this afternoon, I was lucky enough to capture not one beautiful Andrea, but two! This first part will cover the gorgeous Andrea C., an awesome gal that I have known for a little over a year now. She was in the market for a boudoir session with a pin-up look as a gift for her partner. I would have to say that we were successful in capturing some amazing images of her. And, of course, stay tuned for the second part of the Andrea session!
And ladies – don’t forget: Christmas is coming up! If you are interested in scheduling a session like Andrea’s, booking early will be important. With all of the family portrait sessions going on before Christmas, my schedule is filling up fast!
