San Diego Boudoir: another gorgeous!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking boudoir pics for two fun chickies! We had a blast! Got the go ahead to post a few (YAY, thank you!) so here are some of the beautiful *T* You rocked it, girlfriend! 

I LOVE corsets!  Especially fun purple ones! 

Another favorite, SUNFLARE!

Thank you!

A few weeks ago I had a boudoir session with *S* and *K*, two super fun chickies!  We had a blast!  A few minutes ago I heard my doorbell and it was my UPS lady with a package.  It was funny because there was a sticker on the package that said “do not deliver to an intoxicated person.” I thought that was hilarious for some reason!  I opened it up and it was a fun gift! Thank you girls! You are so sweet!

P.S. I think all these recent gifts are a conspiracy to make me fat.  LOL Chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate cupcakes, beer, and wine….you are all in on this together arent you?  HAHAHA J/K! *Smooches!*

Thank you so much to all my awesome clients!! 

Boudoir Albums

I frequently get asked what the boudoir albums that come with the packages look like.  Last week before I shipped them out to some fabulous clients, I took a few quick snaps!

 I keep stock of a few colors that I think are fabulously delicious for a quick turn around time (whitesnake, silver, hot pink*, and red brocade)  but you can also order custom if you dont mind a little bit of a wait. Samples and swatches are available for viewing at your boudoir session.  The prints are hand mounted onto each page for durability.  I LOVE these albums.  They are fun, sexy, and made to last.

*hot pink suede is only available for The Rockstar package (20 images)

Stay tuned for some fun sneak peeks from this weekend! WEEEEE!!!! 

New look coming soon!

Time for a new look!  As you know, I do mostly boudoir photography. I think “love and passion” is my “niche” and I am going to roll with it!  I’m very passionate about helping women feel beautiful and keeping it classy!  I love when people come in all nervous (99% of the time) but then leave with an extra bounce in their step.  Not only is it fun, it’s a great self esteem booster as well as a great gift idea for your honey! You dont know how many times now I have heard “I am welling up with tears because I have never felt this good about myself!”  I LOVE being able to help women see how beautiful they really are.  I’ve been there and I totally “get it.”  It’s like therapy and pretty pictures in one. HAHA!  With that said, I have decided to go full time with the “love and passion” photography.  Soooooo,  Desiree Hayes Photography is taking on a new look! 

I hired the fabulous Erika Jessop to design a logo for me.  What she came up with is PERFECT! Totally fits EXACTLY what I was going for! Sexy but classy! Thank you for seeing (and perfecting) my vision, Erika!

I’ll be updating the website and blog soon.  On the website there will now be a wedding side and a boudoir side.  I’m also currently booking out a few months in advance.  I have a few dates/weekdays available sooner but they tend to go fast.  If you have a special date or anniversary in mind, please let me know as soon as possible so I can accommodate you.   I have some rockin new samples coming too, including a fabulous 20×8 wedding album design that I am so excited about.  If you have a wedding coming up this year, make an appt to come by and see me at my studio and check it out! ;)  Please feel free to sign up on my mailing list (at the top of the blog) to keep updated on new products and updates. One more thing, I will be in Seattle in June and will be hosting a boudoir marathon at a downtown Seattle hotel location.  If you would like more information, send me a shout out! XOXO!
