Right now, it's after midnight and I am wired because I'm excited to announce Millie Dee Photography is now offering boudoir photography in our Landing, NJ Studio location.
I've been involved in photography for decades, and so there was a time when I did offer boudoir on a semi regular basis, however, that all stopped when I decided to focus strictly on newborns. Newborn photography is still my number one love, however, what I've found with giving up other segments of photography, is that I really missed it.
Boudoir photography is a transition from your every day body and mind to a piece of you that gets to step forward for a while and be the well deserved center of attention for a day or two. My feeling is that all women should experience a boudoir or glamour session in each decade of their life. Celebrating your milestone birthday, or a promotion, a wedding, or divorce with a photo session is very fitting.
Funny or not so funny story, years ago when I offered boudoir photography, I was renting studio space in Morristown, NJ where I was part of a co-op and we shared office space. One early Sunday morning, I went to get the key in our mailbox and it was gone and i started worrying because I had to set up for a session. So I started knocking on the door ringing buzzers, then shaking the door a bit to see if it would open, and I can see this bag lady walking down the stairs, I was so happy to see her. She swung the door open and left, and just kept walking down the street, never looking back.
I realized she was the one who took the key and she was staying in the building nice and warm and safe. I never got the key back and stopped renting space in Morristown. I couldn't bare the thought of taking this woman's little bit of peace and comfort. Anyway, now I have a studio space of my own, in Landing New Jersey and I absolutely love it.
I started to experiment with the space and boudoir photography in January/February of this year, however, we got extremely busy with newborn and maternity photography that I had to put the project on hold for a while, however, It made its way back to the top of the todo list in the fall. Yes, you heard me right, the busiest time of year for photographers and here I am experimenting with boudoir photography.
Well, it worked, the visions I've had, the studying I've done, the practice practice practice has paid off as I feel confident that I will be able to provide a high quality boudoir experience for my clients.
I have more of a classic/traditional approach to boudoir I believe. I love black and white photography especially for boudoir portraits. Really just clean lines, and simplicity is my style.
Millie Dee Photography is going to be offering a Black Friday Boudoir Offer a week from today for Black Friday. Our email list will get the deal a couple of days earlier. If you're interested in learning more, please visit our website: www.milliedeephotography.com
I book a couple of months in advance and there won't be too many boudoir sessions that I can book with my current work schedule of newborns,however, I'm excited to be offering boudoir sessions again and to have my very own studio to work in and host my clients in for these sessions is a great feeling and I can't wait.
Thanks for reading, Denise

Where did the name Millie Dee come from? It's my 2 nicknames, my maiden name is Miller, so some friends call me Millie and some call me Dee instead of Denise, so I jammed them together and made Millie Dee...
