So you are considering a Boudoir Session!

So you are considering a Boudoir Session!

At Elegant Images we love all genres of photography. One of our most favorite forms is Boudoir/Glamour Photography!   Boudoir Photography is designed to showcase a woman in a sexy, intimate portrait, but not necessarily nude. The portraits are typically shot in a glamorous private environment – such as a bedroom, studio, outside at a secret spot or in an elegant hotel suite – with lingerie or other revealing attire.

Sexy is an attitude!  Your job is to be yourself.  Our job is to bring out the best in you.  We firmly believe that boudoir is one of the most empowering experiences you can try in a lifetime.  Boudoir photography is a way to celebrate you.  Every woman carries insecurities, however none of them should hold you back.  You are beautiful!! …  Let us show you what you look like through another person’s eyes. Your session can be soft and romantic, naughty and playful or sweet as the girl-next-door. There are NO rules except to trust us and yourself!


With professional styling, the right lighting, expert posing and the correct angles, we will create for you a set of stunning photos you can give to your special honey or keep for yourself.  We aim for a tasteful photo session, which shows off a bit of your sexy side.  You will walk away feeling sexy, strong and beautiful!


The day of your photography session, you have a number of options!  You can request professional hair styling and makeup application from one of our fantastic HMUA’s (Hair & Make Up Artist) or do it yourself.  You can do the shoot alone or book A Boudoir Day with 4 (or less) of your friends, which allows you to save $50.00 each per FRIEND BOOKED! That mean by booking with just one friend your price goes from $399 to $349, and so does your friends price!

Cremona Families’ celebrate the Class of  2016 Graduates!

Cremona alberta grad 2016- becky viklund shot by elegantimages

The village of Cremona came dressed in their Sunday best last night, to celebrate the graduating class of 2016. Every student dreams of this day! When the scholar’s school life finally draws to a close. Only those who have toiled and persevered are given the right to wear the prestigious cap & gown.  It is the formal indicator and distinction between a normal student and a graduating student.

Cremona alberta grad 2016--2Becky Viklund grad

Our daughter Becky was one of those amongst the graduates this year. As her dad and I walked her down the aisle, hugged her and watched her take her respective seat amongst her peers, a feeling of pride overwhelmed us.  There she was, the little girl that was so nerves to get on the school bus that first time.  Our hearts leapt for joy as we watched her proudly walk across the stage to accept her diploma.  She had done it!

Cremona alberta grad 2016--Becky Viklund

As I scanned the room full of proud and happy faces, the quote…  “Nobody else’s footsteps lead to exactly where you are going!” leap into my mind.  This saying is so true.  Although a graduation ceremony is symbolic of a student successfully completing one chapter of their life; the true meaning of this ritual is actually centered on new beginnings.  A doorway to the future has opened; full of new choices, new challenges and new chapters waiting to be written.

Cremona alberta grad 2016- becky and senior class

Congratulations to all the Cremona 2016 Graduates and their families for making to this next section of their lives! We are incredibly delighted and honored to stand with you all.

The Claus’ are coming!

Don’t get me wrong, we are not that “quirky” couple that as soon as Halloween is over we start playing Christmas music. No not us!!  Most years the girls pester Shane and I to put up the tree starting about mid-November.  But true to form, we usually make them wait until about one week before Christmas actually arrives.

Not this year! We were recently approached by the legendary duo “Mr. and Mrs. Claus” to update a few head shots for their annual Christmas card.  They have graciously carved out a few hours in their busy schedule to do a photo shoot on November 15th here at our studios.

As it would be a scheduling nightmare to visit their workshop this late in their season, we have pulled out every Christmas ornament we can find to do the Claus’ shoot justice.  The stockings are hung by the chimney with care.  The horses have been put on notification that they will be stand-in’s for the reindeer.   The tree is adorned in classic red and gold and a newly minted Santa List rolls gracefully down our living room wall and on to our floor.

I was not sure which side of Santa’s Naughty/Nice list I landed on this year.  So I rigged the jury and placed my name on the Nice list in hopes it squeaks through.  Hmm… maybe we are the reason that Santa always checks his list twice!

Check back in a week or so to see the finalized photos and to find out if I get to Stay on the Nice List!
