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

 

Creating Belly Art

DSC-500-2Yep. It’s art. Don’t you think?? What could be more artful than an implied nude of a beautiful woman celebrating what her body can do?

Such a beautiful and important thing to commemorate. Don’t let anyone fool you: just because every 2nd person can do it, and it’s gets done hundreds of times everyday doesn’t mean it isn’t the most incredible, amazing, crazy thing in the whole wide world. Maternity Boudoir-4Maternity Boudoir-8Maternity Boudoir-2Maternity Boudoir-11Makeover by AtHome Beauty.
