We offer two physical types of boudoir photography albums - Artful Albums and Bon a Vie albums. In this post, we're going to focus on Artful Albums.
ALL ABOUT THE ARTFUL BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY ALBUM
First off, the Artful Boudoir Photography Album is not a photo book. The pages of our "Artful Albums" lie completely flat, so that there is no distortion across your boudoir photos, like there would be in a photo book. In fact, the left and right pages of the Artful Boudoir Photography Album consists of a single sheet, uncut, so that you see just a tiny crease in the middle where the spread folds. We offer a variety of textured and untextured paper types, which are then mounted on cardstock to make pages that are 1/16 of an inch thick. No tearing or bending with our "Artful Albums!" Also choose from a variety of cover options, including fabrics, leathers, suedes, canvas, and more. The Artful Boudoir Photography Album can contain 10-60 pages and is available in 10x10, 8x12, and 12x12 sizes.
We offer two design styles for the Artful Boudoir Photography Album: the classic design and the storybook design. All of our album designs are completely custom; your album design will be unique! When placing your boudoir photography album order, we discuss design elements, colors, and themes. I want to know what you like or don't like so I can design the perfect boudoir photography album for you!
THE CLASSICALLY-DESIGNED BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY ALBUM
The classic design is simple, traditional, and well... classic. Each page of the album contains a single image, with size variations between pages. So a 20-page album would contain 20 boudoir photos, and a 60-page album would contain 60 boudoir photos. For an absolute classic, choose a white, black, or other solid background behind the images. For a more feminine design, we can add patterned backgrounds, frilly borders, and other design elements.
THE STORYBOOK BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY ALBUM DESIGN
Our storybook albums are designed to tell a story... the amazing story of YOU! A 20-page storybook boudoir photography album can contain 30-45 images. Add more pages if you'd like to include more images. Each 2-page set of a storybook album contains a different number of images. One set of pages could contain just a single horizontal image spread across left and right pages. Another set of pages might contain 6 or 8 images of varying sizes. As with the classic design, backgrounds can be a solid color or can be patterned with more design elements.
WHEN SHOULD I DO MY BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?
Your boudoir photographer cannot create this quality of album is not created overnight. We have to plan your session, do your session, place your album order, design your album, retouch and prep it for printing, and finally, print it. The Artful Boudoir Photography Album does not take as long to print as our handmade Bon a Vie albums. However, you should still plan for a minimum of 2.5 months from the date of your initial planning & design meeting to album delivery for an Artful Album (and 4.5 months for a handmade Bon a Vie boudoir photography album).
