T his past Tuesday I attended my first Shecky's Girls Night Out event. Though I enjoyed myself I was a bit disappointed with the variety of vendors, which isn't a reflection of Shecky's per se, it's just the way it worked out. Anywho, while the overwhelming majority of vendors were selling jewelry, I did find a few folks who were promoting things that you wouldn't find everyday. One such vendor was Kim Noel of KNP boudoir.

Boudoir is also the name of a tasteful yet tantalizing style of photography that can boost your self-esteem and your love life all in a single shot. Boudoir photo albums make a great wedding, anniversary, birthday, or just because it's Tuesday present for the guy in your life. As a mother of a not yet two year old, I can see a boudoir shoot as a good way for hot mamas to fall in love with their post baby bodies. Recently reached a new decade or are newly single? Try a boudoir shoot as way to show yourself you still got it!
Because everyone has a different take on sexy, the KNP Boudoir studio has 10 different sets, to suit your fancy. The sets range from a high backed over stuffed red velvet sofa, or a vintage glam damask wallpaper background, to the simplicity of a white sheet or a polished hard wood floor. And of course there is a canopy bed that you can pose in for the genuine boudoir feel.
To afraid to go it alone? No worries, Kim makes it easy for you to invite a few friends to try out the experience as well, by offering Girls Night Out packages. As a hostess you can earn a free photo session just by inviting your girls.
- Invite 4 friends and recieve the Simply Sassy package which consists of a 20 minute personal session, 1 outfit, 1-2 sets and a $100 credit towards ordering prints of your photos ( a $150 value).
- With six friends you'll recieve the Little Black Book package, which includes a 40 minute personal session, 2 outfits, 2-3 sets, and a bound "Little Black Book" with 10 images.
“I just wanted to thank you again for the fabulous shoot you did and the beautiful album. Matt totally flipped over it! I had it given to him the morning of the wedding while he was getting ready and he was totally shocked and amazed. It was definitely the reaction I was looking for! Now the only problem is that he is so impressed that he wants to show to every he knows!” – Katie S.Kim relates another story that is really touching..
Another client I recently had was in her mid 50’s. She had five children and wanted to know if she could still look beautiful and sexy. While I don’t have a word for word reaction from her, she was teary eyed as she viewed her images. She explained that she was actually in therapy to help with her self-esteem and that having this photo shoot was actually the best therapy should could have had. She really left feeling beautiful and worthwhile.So enough with my jibber-jabber you're ready to see some pics right? If your kiddos are sitting right next to you as you try to find time in your day to be on the computer, now might be the time to tell 'em to shoo.

So, for a sexy twist on your Spaparazzi party, channel your inner pin up girl and schedule a boudoir party. Of course hair and make up aren't the only things to worry about at this type of photo shoot, scheduling a spa day to get everything in tip top shape before the shoot isn't a bad idea. Keep in mind that some mobile spas do offer waxing and spray tanning right in the comfort of your home.
