His Gift. Their Experience.

Elizabeth Craig Boudoir Photography-7He emailed me and wanted to know more about my sessions. At the time I had packages; he bought my 2nd from the top package. He emailed not too long after and upgraded to my top package.

She was so excited for this session. She followed all of my guidance carefully and thoroughly. She communicated with me regularly and the feeling of anticipation was palpable. She was ready.

The energy that day in the studio was sweet, electric and even a bit euphoric. It had been a while since I had someone so so so ready to make her session every inch, every nook, every cranny, every teensy eensy weensy bit and ounce what she knew it could be.

THAT is a good feeling to have in my studio.

We glided through her session with ease and laughter, ohhhhhhing and awwwwwwwing all the way. She glowed.

On her reveal day she brought him with her. I set up the slideshow and walked all the way to the back of my studio to give them space. Watching him take in her photos was such an experience. He kept shaking his head, but in that “YES!” kind of way. In that, “I just have no words” kind of way. He teared up. No I’m not kidding–he teared up as he watched his lovely, beautiful and sexy wife float from one slide to the next and he was so overcome he couldn’t help it. It was so romantic and so intimate.

Admit it. You want one. You want one just like him.

So he did buy her the gift of the session, but it truly was an experience for both of them. Not only did they both get to experience seeing her photos for the first time together, but every time they look at them they will be transported right back to that day.

I’d say that was a worthy investment…and he just bought her session #2…and I just can’t wait…Elizabeth Craig Boudoir Photography-8Elizabeth Craig Boudoir Photography-9Elizabeth Craig Boudoir Photography-10Elizabeth Craig Boudoir Photography-11Elizabeth Craig Boudoir Photography-12Elizabeth Craig Boudoir Photography-13Makeover by AtHome Beauty.

So Much Update. So Little Time.

Pittsburgh Boudoir Photography Educator-1Goodness me-oh-my….themmmmmmm LEGS! Now I really and truly understand when someone uses the term “legs up to her chin”.

So, just a bit of a catch-up as to what has been going on in my world. I know I’ve been seriously slacking on the blogging and I’m trying to catch my breath but I’ll be honest with you: if you really want current updates on my work you should follow me on my personal Facebook, photography Facebook and education Facebook, as well as my photography Instagram and education Instagram. See why I have no time to blog? Because I have FIVE social media accounts to deal with (insert fainting Elizabeth here).

Hopefully you know by now that myself, along with John and Lola, have opened a boudoir and editorial education business, Elizabeth Craig Education. YES YES YES!! I’m so excited and I know I’ve been bombarding everyone with a crapload of social media getting the word out there so I’m going to keep this snippet brief: launches on 10/29. If you want to register/buy the 10-wk course you have to do so by 10/28 11:59pm EST or you have to wait 3 months until we get through the first round. We’ve had lots of success so far and I AM SO THRILLED!!! Once you buy, you are grandmothered in and will have access to all additional content for life AND the price will be going up you guys. So if you’re interested, now is the time!

Yes, I am still photographing. You guys…seriously…like I could ever stop. But people keep asking me if I’m hanging up the camera for a chalkboard and my answer is, of course, NOPERS! Never ever ever. Right now I am booking for 2019 so keep that in mind for Valentine’s Day!

I pinkie swear I’m going to try and blog more often. In the meantime, come catch me on social media!Pittsburgh Boudoir Photography Educator-2Pittsburgh Boudoir Photographer | Elizabeth Craig Photography-1Pittsburgh Boudoir Photographer | Elizabeth Craig Photography-2Muse: Mia Gilroy

It’s Launch Time Baby!

Screen Shot 2018-10-12 at 5.11.00 AMHOW EXCITED am I to officially announce the launch of Elizabeth Craig Education?? Let me tell you: SUPER EXCITED! Like….super DUPER excited!!

If you’ve been following ECE, then you may be a bit confused as to why we went radio silent when our official launch date was supposed to be October 1. Well, let me explain…

It’s really simple: we just weren’t ready. I was out in Colorado teaching a workshop on 10/1 and Lola was out there assisting, while John was filming for the week. This meant we couldn’t really give our full attention to a superb launch, which is what we wanted. 

But now the GOOD NEWS!

We are launching on 10/15. Yes! Only three more days and you will have full access to the entire Elizabeth Craig Education 10-week program (insert high-five, Snoopy dance and the clinking of champagne glass here).

If you thought that was all the fanfare we were ready to give, then you’d be wrong. I’d love to formally invite you to join me for 6 free webinars that will include all the deets on ECE, my top tips on In-Person Sales, building confidence in your clients,  and building confidence in yourself. You can also join team ECE (John, Lola and myself) for an awesome talk on marketing, but my favorite day will be the day I do a LIVE SHOOT so you can get a true peek into my shoots, studio and how I do what I do! See below for the full schedule.

In the meantime, feel free to hop on over to the ECE site and cruise through all the information we have for you there! Have questions? Email us at hello@elizabethcraigeducation.com or save them for the webinars!Screen Shot 2018-10-12 at 5.10.27 AM

Make sure to register to join me for these six FREE webinars! To keep up to date on everything Elizabeth Craig, be sure to follow me at @elizabethcraigeducation and @elizabethcraigphotography on Instagram!

Searching for Gold in Colorado

Outdoor Boudoir Photo Shoot | Elizabeth Craig Photography-1….and I found it.

I’m going to toss this blog post up before my biggie big post (with video and everything!) just to give you a wee taste of what Colorado was like for us. If you remember, I was invited to Photo Rehab 2018 to instruct on 2 classes: Boudoir Flow Posing and Nailing In-Person Sales, while John came to film and also fill in some of the teaching gaps, along with Ms. Lola Gilbert (if you haven’t heard yet, we 3 make up the team that runs and operates Elizabeth Craig Education).

I’ll tell you more about my time in CO soon, but for now I wanted to highlight this awesome shoot I was able to put together as a bonus for the attendees. If you don’t recognize that fab glam model, it’s Krystle Coll from Adventuring with the Colls and Juniper and Krystles. Yes! She and her sexy husband, Edward, flew out to CO so that Krystle could be a model in my posing class, as well as this hot as hell shoot (hot as in sexy, not temperature…it as DAMN COLD!) I was THRILLED to be able to offer this to the attendees because, well….LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS!! Who WOULDN’T want some of these to toss into their portfolio?!?

BIG GIANT THANK YOU to Krystle for braving the crowd and cold. Sameera for the INCREDIBLE makeup and Evan for KILLING IT SO MUCH on the hair. You 2 blew me away!

It was a magical experience. I had the time of my life. There were huge Elk. The mountains were mystical.
