It’s really happening! Earlier this month, after seven years of being a full-time boudoir photographer, I did something I’d never done before. I hosted a model call.
To be honest, I expected to get maybe two dozen applications and was already NOT looking forward to narrowing those down to the five or six final models I thought I’d need! But then it got crazy. All told, I got over a 130 applications! Holy crap!
You guys…I had two separate breakdowns trying to figure out what to do with that. I was overwhelmed, excited, and totally lost all at the same time. There’s no way I could choose just five or six! Talking with my husband about it at River City Brewing, I was in tears (no joke…in the middle of the brewpub) over the thought of having to turn down so many incredible women who wanted to be a part of this new concept, and at the same time just overjoyed that SO MANY WOMEN were willing to do so! I may have been a little extra emotional that day…but it was still a lot to process.
Actual footage of me trying to figure this all out.
In the end, I picked thirty models (from several states, even!) to launch this new brand. That’s more than I’m even capable of photographing in three months without my already-busy Boudoir by Wallflower schedule, but I wanted to do as much as I could as a “thank you” for the amazing response. For everyone else, I sent out over $13,000 worth of gift cards towards V&V sessions when I open them up for clients next April. Past Boudoir by Wallflower clients got an extra bonus because I already love you all so much and REALLY want to work with you again! (Note: being a client comes with perks even beyond the experience itself!)
