Betty Blue offers boudoir sessions in Austin and the surrounding area as far as San Antonio with the majority of the sessions in her South Austin studio location. The studio is bathed in natural light. There is also an intimate portrait studio residing next door.
Every session begins with an initial consultation, so we can get to know one another. I encourage clients to use this time for questions and ideas. It can be a simple telephone call, or face-time session.
After the initial consultation, we'll work together to book your session date. I have some wonderful resources for outfits which I love to share with clients to help them with their vision. Also, I have two highly talented makeup and hair artists that will also be booked upon confirming the date.
Let's Create Magic
On the day of your session, we'll sit and chat for a while - sip a glass of champagne, wine or a topo-chico and listen to your favorite music. Whatever makes you feel comfortable. After hair, makeup, and a few sips of your favorite drink - we'll get right down to it. Just you, me, and the camera. We will lay out your outfits and transition from there. You just never know which one will truly be your favorite.
After your session, we'll post the best images to a password-protected private online gallery for you to view, enjoy, and maybe even share with that special someone. Each image is lovingly hand-retouched to accent your best features. From this gallery you will be able to select the images you want to have included in your package and album. Are you ready?
I have been photographing women for over a decade. I have the knowledge and experience to truly put a client in the best possible pose to accent the look. I work closely with my clients and will show them first. It is all about creating the right atmosphere and mood and even the right type of music speaks to that certain outfit or pose.
I like to have sessions last from one hour to one and a half. That way we can provide a lot of variety when you do the final gallery viewing and when I create the album.
All images are edited after, but no body-modifications are made. There are times where blemishes are taken out or highlights are brought out. I like to pose my clients in the best possible way that makes them look and feel amazing when they see the photos.
My style is reverent and bold, but also light and airy. It really depends on the individual and what they like. I like to start off the session with something you are most comfortable in. I like to offer variety in a session so that when we create the album that goes from one spectrum to the other.
No person is the same and we all look different. I have years of experience working with women of all ages and sizes. I try the pose out first to make sure I am comfortable in it and then we switch to you. I make sure everything is perfect first before I even start photographing you. That is having a purpose for why hands are placed somewhere and why the body "pops" like it does. I want you relaxed and having fun.
Friends are always welcome. Sometimes they make you feel more comfortable and sometimes they can be a little stressful with suggestions or ideas. In the end the answer is whatever makes you feel comfortable.
Some images will be in black and white but all photos will be in color.
I don't. I say this because women are all differed. There may be posses that are the same, but feel that everyone posses differently.
"SHE MADE ME FEEL COMFORTABLE."
"Working with Amy was honestly one of the best and most empowering experiences I have ever had. I was extremely nervous going into the session, because I am usually very camera shy, but she made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process! Plus she has a fantastic personality. And oh my gosh, the pictures came out better than I could have ever hoped for! If you are thinking of doing boudoir photos, please go to Amy!"
I realize that a boudoir session is an investment, an investment in yourself. I want you to feel comfortable with me and trust me because we are in such an intimate setting during the session. It is so important to invest in yourself. I guarantee that the experience you will have and the end product will give you back something as well as give you something in the end. It's an experience you have to have at this time in your life. I am always eager to hop on a call or face-time to assure you that you are in the best hands possible.
"Working with Amy WAS such an amazing
experience, I FELT SO COMFORTABLE."
"My fiancé and I are professional, full time photographers. So when I decided I wanted to do a boudoir session we really did our research and Betty Blue Boudoir was the clear winner.
Working with Amy felt more like hanging out with a friend and we had so much fun! During our session she was so helpful and showed me exactly how to pose. I felt so comfortable.
After I was done I told everyone about how fun and empowering the whole experience was."
"Amy was amazing! Her studio where the shoot took place in Buda was gorgeous. It was very old fashioned, elegant and dainty. Amy made me feel so comfortable and relaxed.
We just talked during the shoot and her instructions with poses and what to do were very clear and easy to understand.
I'm so glad I got my shoot done with her. I can't wait to show my fiancé the pictures!"
"Amy is a phenomenal photographer and she did a fantastic job at making me feel so comfortable during this session. She got a lot of really incredible shots that I put in a nice book to give to my husband as a wedding day gift and he LOVED it! I've never seen him blush so hard.
I'll absolutely be using her again in the future for some special anniversary or Valentine's day photos."
There are not enough words to explain how amazing of an experience it was to work with Amy. I did a lot of research on photographers initially before deciding that I would fly from Chicago to Texas so I could have Amy do my boudoir shoot.
Amy's talent is out of this world. I was so scared going into the shoot (as it was my first) but Amy made me feel completely comfortable, she was great when I had questions or needed direction and I almost forgot what I was doing since I was having so much fun.
"Was totally impressed by Amy! She is very professional yet made our session really fun! This shoot was totally outside my comfort zone and she made me feel totally comfortable! I would recommend Amy to anyone!!!"
