K’s Boudoir Photography Experience in Calgary

Why did you book a boudoir photoshoot?
To feel confident and to present them as a gift to my fiance on our wedding day.

Why did you choose TAIT Photography?
She is the best at Boudoir Photography in Calgary. I have seen lots of her work and I feel touched by how all women can look so amazing in all of her photography.

How did you prepare for your shoot?
I went shopping and more shopping and had a great time picking out outfits. I got ready early and was there for a great relaxing makeover of hair and make-up.

Who are the images for?
The images are for my soon to be husband on the day of the wedding I will give them to him. I know he will cherish each and everyone of them.

How was the experience?
I felt so comfortable and it was so much fun. Erica is very upbeat and helpful in posing and the experience couldn’t have gone any better.

How do you feel about your boudoir photos?
I have so many favourites I had to come down from 44 favourite pictures. I like the laying down and looking into the camera shots and the views from the top and the leg photos are amazing too.

Did you have your Hair & Makeup done?
I did have my hair and make up done and it was so nice. I gives you time to relax and get pampered before. It allowed me to think about my hair and my make up before instead of how I am going to pose. It truly made the pictures. Erica directed me through the poses and the results were amazing.

Why should other women do a boudoir shoot?
To boost your confidence. You will truly feel better about yourself when you receive your pictures you will be like, is this really me, I am beautiful!

Anything else to add?
It’s the best thing to spend the money on if you can. I think it is so rewarding and boosts your self esteem to the roof.

T’s Boudoir Experience | Vancouver

Why did you book a boudoir session?
To have something special to give to my boyfriend, knowing that he would appreciate the photos; but also to do it for myself because I’ve always wanted to have the courage to do a boudoir session and feel pampered and beautiful.

Vancouver boudoir photographer

Why did you choose TAIT Photography?
After looking into Erica’s website and seeing her other photos, I liked her style better than any others I could find in my area.

How did you prepare for your shoot?
I thought of a few outfits I would feel pretty and comfortable in, and talked to friends about ideas for props & jewellery to bring.

Boudoir Photographer

Who are they for?
The boudoir pics are for my boyfriend. He knows I went to the shoot but I’m keeping the photos secret until the calendar arrives for his birthday. He keeps asking me to have a sneak peak!

How was the experience?
I think everyone feels self-conscious about themselves at times, so I went there thinking I might feel shy but I had fun during the shoot and I felt really sexy. I was way more comfortable than I thought I would be.

Boudoir Photographer

How do you feel about your images?
I love them all… My favourite are the mardi gras images with the gold mask because they feel a bit original and I feel like they go with my personality. Also, the ones with the pearls are really pretty.

Did you have your Hair & Makeup done?
It was great. Gaby (Gaby Ramirez Makeup) made sure to ask me what I preferred for each part and it turned out just like I would’ve hoped.

Why should other women do a boudoir shoot for themselves?
A lot of my friends want to be in perfect shape before they would even think about it, but really it makes you feel in perfect shape once you do it, because you can see how beautiful you are already.

50th Birthday Present Boudoir Shoot

Why did you do a boudoir session?
I wanted to do something special for my husband’s 50th birthday. He has always wanted pictures of me and I felt this would be a memorable and long lasting gift. I also feel that it is important to keep the “sparkle” in a relationship! It takes hard work to keep a marriage exciting!

Why did you choose TAIT Boudoir Photography?
My husband had come home from work and someone at the office had given him a “sneak” viewing of his wife’s pictures. He couldn’t get over how beautiful they were. I spoke to the woman and was told wonderful things about TAIT Photography.

How did you prepare for your shoot?
Erica led me through what I needed to do and what I needed to think about. I also spent time on the website looking at what would help make my session memorable for my husband.

Who are your boudoir photos for?
They are for my husband. I can’t wait to give them as a birthday gift! I know he will be amazed that I ever did something like this for him. I think it will continue to make a strong relationship even stronger.

How was the experience?
It made me feel beautiful in a way that I never thought I could.

How do you feel about your images?
I loved my images. It is hard to choose a favorite since Erica does everything so that it looks like it is done with class.

Do you have an interesting story about your experience?
It was fun to choose the pictures with my siblings. Since I am the oldest of four they were in awe that I would do something like this and now they want to do something for their spouses as well.

Why should others have their own boudoir shoot?
I think it is important to remember that men feel very special being given beautiful photos of the women they love. It also makes the women feel beautiful!

50th birthday present for husband

K’s Boudoir Experience

Why did you book a boudoir session?
The photos are for an anniversary gift for my wonderful husband. I have never had a lot of confidence being a plus sized woman, and he has never seen me in lingerie so I figured, why not!

Why did you choose TAIT Photography?

I found their boudoir photos to be extremely professional, flattering to all the body types they’ve photographed and really really beautiful sexy photos.

How did you prepare for your photoshoot?

Mentally, I said to myself, it’s a private session, just me and the photographer and she has seen it all, so don’t be shy, be sexy!! I arranged my own hair and make up done prior to the shoot with Madd Pretty Makeup Studio and that helped me prepare for the shoot quite a bit! Once I saw myself all dolled up, I said – I’m ready, let’s do this.

When will you give your photos to your husband?
Well I haven’t given them to him yet, I will be next Wednesday which is our Anniversary…. he will be simply shocked! And not expecting it, I gave him some hard hints and he guessed exhaust pipes and a new couch set… so, he will be blown away!

How was the whole boudoir experience?

Simply put – life changing. I walked out of there thinking to myself, I am a beautiful woman, no matter what my body size/shape is. I feel sexy, I know that I looked sexy for sure…. I seriously felt like a new woman.

How do you feel about your boudoir photos?

My images were breath taking! Incredible angles, perfect lighting, Erica was so helpful in guiding me where to sit, stand or lay and what to do with my hands, how to tilt my head, what to wear, and even had some extra accessories that I used and looked gorgeous in!

Boudoir Photographer

Do you have an interesting story about your boudoir experience?
A bit of a story… When I met my husband 7 years ago, we always had a thing for each other but both of us were in other relationships… but after several years, we finally got together and have been happy ever since and now celebrating our 1 year anniversary. He’s always said how beautiful he thought I was and I never had the confidence to really come out of my shell, so because of him and because of my photo shoot experience, I have climbed out of my shell and threw it away and have become a whole new sexy confident woman!

Why should other women do a boudoir shoot?

It brings out your inner beauty and it lets you see yourself in a way you never thought was possible, we all critique ourselves and are all too hard on ourselves. Seeing other beautiful woman in boudoir photos is one thing, but seeing YOURSELF in one, is a life changing experience I guarantee your breath will be taken away when you see yourself!!

Why did you do a boudoir session?
This is the most difficult question to answer. I didn’t have a session to give the images as a gift or because I was a bride to be. I have a hectic life between my career, 3 children and a husband who is deployed to Afghanistan (again). It is all too easy to lose myself in the everyday routine of life. I wanted to do something that was outside of my comfort zone. Something that pushed me to remember that under all of my roles there is a slightly impulsive sassy woman. I wanted to feel beautiful for one moment.

Why did you choose TAIT Photography?
I researched photographers using Internet wedding boards. I noticed post after post which had glowing reviews of Erica’s work and her professionalism. I went to her website and visited the galleries. Her work was far superior to that of other photographers I had researched. The images that Erica is able to capture are simply beautiful.

How did you prepare for your shoot?
In the beginning I considered how I wanted to look and thought about the proper exercise schedule to ensure that I looked just right. Then I took a step back and reminded myself that I want to feel beautiful just as I am. I want to be comfortable in my own skin. So I didn’t do anything (other than shopping) to prepare for the session.

Who are your photos for?
The images are for me. I love the photos. My husband is currently deployed to Afghanistan and he was a little shocked when I mentioned that I had scheduled a boudoir session. He hasn’t been able to see them yet but he is excited and reminded me that the only opinion that counts is mine.

How was the whole experience?
This experience was completely out of my comfort zone. I was nervous and excited. I turned complete control over to Erica and the make up artist and trusted their judgement. Both were so professional and having an all female staff was great. Everyone was warm, light hearted and happy to be there. Once we finished I realized how amazing the entire experience was.

How do you feel about your photos?
I love all of them. I was a little worried that the make up would come across too dark or the photos wouldn’t look like me. The make up was perfect and Erica was able to capture me in these images. Some are a little goofy, and others are a little sultry and some are just beautiful! I really like the range of facial expression and body movement. They all look like me.

Do you have an interesting story about your experience you would like to share?
After my session I needed to run into Target. I was back in my jeans and blouse but still had on the makeup with false eyelashes: Glamour meets soccer mom. I got so many positive comments on the makeup and especially the false eyelashes.

Why should other women do a shoot for themselves?
Every woman should do this at least once in her life. Going through the makeup and photo session is amazing but the moment you open your gallery and see these beautiful images of yourself is beyond words. WE all put so much pressure on ourselves to be thinner, smarter, be a better wife, get a promotion etc… that we rarely take a moment and think about how beautiful, intelligent and capable we are. Having a boudoir session gives you a moment to challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone and to see yourself as an amazingly beautiful woman.

Why did you book a boudoir shoot?
I will be getting married in November and wanted to get a wedding gift for my fiance that he would never expect and love. I know this will be the perfect present.

How did you prepare for your shoot?
I looked everywhere for the perfect lingerie (which I found). Beautiful lingerie makes any girl feel beautiful. And I made sure to grab my fiance’s jersey just for him.

Why should other women do a boudoir shoot?
Whether they are for you or someone else, these photos will make you feel good about yourself. It’s an experience I think every woman should have. It really opens your eyes to how beautiful you really are in the most intimate setting.

Do you have an interesting story about your boudoir experience?

K’s Boudoir Photography Experience | Vancouver Boudoir Photographer

Why did you book a boudoir photo session?
I wanted to do a boudoir session for myself and for my boyfriend. I struggle with low self esteem and I knew doing a boudoir session would help me over come my insecurities. I love my boyfriend more than anything in the world and I wanted to show him how much he means to me. I know this is the perfect gift for him.

Why did you choose TAIT Boudoir Photography?
I chose TAIT photography because out of all the websites I browsed, Erica seemed like the most professional and genuine photographer. All the interviews and testimonials said wonderful things about her and her work, her website was easy to explore and her pictures are just AMAZING! Her prices are very competitive and there are so many product choices! She gives you many pictures to choose from too. I am so glad I chose Erica to take my pictures, the experience was far better than I ever imagined.

How did you prepare for your session?
The morning of my session, I was very relaxed and had my nails done. I gave myself lots of time for everything and had a very stress free morning. The night before, I picked out all my outfits that made me feel sexy and pretty. I was more excited than nervous!

Who are your images for?
The images are for me and my boyfriend as an anniversary gift. My boyfriend has not seen the pictures yet, nor does he know I even did this. But I am quite sure he is going to be stunned and incredibly happy and I’m so excited for the day I get to show them to him!

Boudoir Photographer

How was your boudoir photography the experience?
Erica is an amazing photographer. She told me everything I needed to do and was really supportive throughout the whole session. She was very encouraging which made me feel really comfortable. The radio was playing in the background and it was all very relaxing. I felt like a supermodel!

Boudoir Photographer

How do you feel about your photos?
After my session, I was counting down the days until I could see my pictures. The morning I received the email I was so excited to see them! I absolutely love them. They all make me feel really good about myself and all the insecurities I have are gone whenever I look at the pictures. My absolute favourite ones are the ones with me in a superman shirt. My boyfriend is the biggest superman fan and I know he is going to laugh in amusement when he sees them!

Did you have your Hair & Makeup done with us?
I don’t wear make-up… ever. So for me getting my hair and make-up done at my boudoir session was a must! It was worth everything though. My make-up artist Gaby did such a wonderful job. She talked me thru the whole process, asked me questions as to how I wanted to look, I got to pick the colours I wanted and she made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I had no idea I could look that beautiful!

Why should others?
Other women should have a boudoir session because it helps you to see your inner and outer beauty. Every woman deserves to feel amazing and truly appreciate everything about her body. Erica is an amazing photographer and helped me gain my self confidence back.

Do you have an interesting story about your experience?
The morning of my boudoir session I was getting ready and putting on “fake nails” and he texted me that he may be coming home early! He was not able to escape work (thank goodness!). My boyfriend has never seen me with make up or with my hair all done up. I thought for sure when he did come home he would have questions as to why I was so dressed up. I made up excuses and he stopped asking. He thought that I looked so beautiful with my hair and make-up. Then the day I got the email my pictures were ready for viewing he was at home sick! I had to strategically place the computer so I could see them (I was very excited) and so he couldn’t! He has not seen the pictures yet and there have been some times when I’ve almost told him but I’m determined to make it a surprise!

I received my album and it all looks AMAZING. Thank you so much Erica for the wonderful job and all the time and effort you put into everything from the photo shoot to the final product. I have really appreciated everything!

C’s Boudoir Photoshoot | Calgary Boudoir Photo Studio

Why did you decide to do a boudoir photo session?
I thought it would make for a very special Valentines Day present. I have been with my husband for ten years, and have always wanted to get some nice photos done, and when I found TAIT photography, I knew that Erica was the photographer I wanted to work with.

Why did you choose TAIT Photography?

After viewing some of the example books and Erica’s portfolio, I knew that I wanted to get my pictures done with her. Her work is amazing!

How did you prepare for the session?
I just tried to relax – oh, and make sure my legs were shaved! :)

Who are your boudoir photos for?
The images are for my husband, and I wanted him to help choose the images to go into the book, so it wasn’t a surprise, but he is very excited to see the final product.

How was the experience?
I felt very comfortable while taking the pictures – Erica is very easy to take direction from, and she knows exactly how to make you look your best.

How do you feel about your images?

I am so impressed with my pictures. My favorites are the ones where I am wearing my husband’s jersey. They look so relaxed and sexy at the same time.

Did you get your makeup done with us?
I really enjoyed getting my makeup and hair done, that was the highlight of my day, and I got to go to a party afterward, totally made-up!

Why should other women do a boudoir photoshoot?

A boudoir session makes you feel confident about yourself, and highlights your beautiful and sexy features. They make for a wonderful gift and keepsake!
