Facebook Boudoir Page Name Results
21st November 2013 - 0 comments
Firstly, a huge thank you to all those that took part. I have emailed nearly everyone that took the time to suggest a name or two. I had a very large number of entries, sadly many I couldn't use because there are already companies and pages with those names, and I needed something different and unique, which still captured the essence of my Boudoir images, but the ideas were good all the same. Thank you!
So in reverse order.....
Second place was drawn from the hat, and that was Michelle Mayhew, who wins a Mini-Boudoir shoot.
The first prize of the Deluxe Boudoir Shoot was won by Gemma B of Norwich (I've withheld her surname by request due to the nature of her job) with one of her suggestions.....

Eterno


which as we all know (".) is Italian for timeless.
Congratulations to Gemma and Michelle!!
The page is under construction and will be ready soon....so watch this space!
Boudoir Facebook Page Comp
28th October 2013 - 0 comments
I'm making preparations to add a Boudoir page to my Facebook presence, but I need a little help with the name, and that is where you come in! To encourage you all to assist I've decided to give away a Deluxe Boudoir Package to the person that suggests the name I end up using.
The package consists of a two hour shoot at your home (or other suitable location) and an Image CD containing 25 images from the shoot. I may even throw in a makeover too!
All you have to do is come up with a name that I can use for my Facebook page. Ideally it will reflect my style of Boudoir, be easy on the ear and of course, be clean!!!
All I ask is that before you enter, please make sure you have LIKED my Facebook page.
Then to complete your enry simply, add your name (first and surname please) and your suggestion(s) for the page name in the comment box below. Multiple entries are allowed. If you are entering in behalf of your wife or girlfriend etc, please state this too.
Don't forget your email address too. No email, no winner!
Please note, no comments/entries made will appear on the website, they will be for my eyes only!
Good Luck!!

Mini-Boudoir Competition Results
08th June 2013 - 0 comments
As you may have seen, I have recently run a competition offering a Mini-Boudoir session as first prize. The number of entries was surprisingly high, there were many names that I didn't recognise, a few that I did, and of those, one or two that surprised me by entering! This tells me two things, the first being that Boudoir photography is becoming more popular, and secondly, ladies are feeling more confident about having a session for themselves!
Any way down to the details....
There is one image in my boudoir galley which contains a word, I asked what was that word? All names of those who answered correctly went into the hat, with one winner and four runners-up being drawn out.
The correct answer was LOVE.
The winner of the Mini-Boudoir Session is Katie Good, and the four runners-up, who all win a half-price Mini-Boudoir session, are; Karen Carroll, Lois Nelson, Emma Jarvis and Roz Green.

Many congratulations to Katie and the runners-up. I'll be organising the shoots with them shortly, and you never know, they may even let me show you all a shot or two!
