Boudoir parties


Gather your girlfriends for the best girls day ever. 

Boudoir parties


Gather your girlfriends for the best girls day ever. 

Best idea for a bachelorette party or girls day ever? I think so.  Gather a group of your girlfriends or bridesmaids for an awesome day of boudoir mini-sessions for each of you. It's the perfect way for everyone to feel goofy, sexy and to encourage and uplift each other in being our most beautiful selves. Each girl will get a password protected gallery of their edited images and a little white box of eight mounted images printed with archival ink to give as a gift for your partner (or just for yourself.) Sessions start at $550 for 5 girls and last about 3 hours. We can even have hair and make-up come on site!  I would love to spend the day laughing and shooting with you!

Please note the bubbles in this photoshoot were used for professional props.

About Jessica


About Jessica


Hi - I'm Jessica Darling and I'm your photographer extraordinaire! I attended the Hallmark Institute of Photography in Massachusetts and then moved to Rhode Island pursuing a career as a wedding photographer.  Upon meeting the love of my life, I landed back in Grand Rapids, Michigan where I was born and raised.  Throughout my years as a young adult I have learned that I am obsessed with being a woman.  It is really the greatest title you can have.  I have met so many women who have encouraged me to be ambitious, independent, beautiful and full of virtue.  As women, we are made to be strong and resilient, to be honest and brave, to be passionate and compassionate.  I am so enthralled to be on this journey as a boudoir photographer because it allows me to meet all of you (with all of those wonderful descriptions above.) It allows me to bring out what makes you, you in the form of a photograph.  I absolutely love my job and I look forward to keeping the positivity going and to help all of you love yourselves as much as I love learning about and photographing you. Cheers!
