Champaign-Urbana Boudoir Photographer | Holly Birch Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to Champaign Boudoir!

    My name is Holly, and I love making beautiful photographs! I especially love taking photographs of people and making them feel beautiful. Boudoir sessions are great women of any shape, size, or age. Let loose and show off your feminine and sexy side! It's my goal to make you feel comfortable & at ease in front of my camera. I can help you plan your session -- your outfits, hair & makeup, props & furniture and even your facial expressions. I take the utmost care to protect your images and your identity and do not typically show the faces of my clients online unless through a password-protected gallery.

    I'd love to sit down and chat with you about photographing your boudoir session, your hesitations, and your expectations. I love what I do and I hope that shows!

Boudoir Mini Sessions | Urbana Hotel Setting

I’m a little behind on blogging, but catching up from all my 2015 sessions now (of course once busy wedding season is here… ha!). In March, I got back into the swing of things with the every-other-month mini sessions. I had three great clients, and met a new makeup artist since my usual one was sick. Deb did a great job on my three clients, and I was particularly happy with the colors of the decor at the hotel I used on that date. Two of them are already married and planning to surprise their hubbies, and one is getting married this summer, hence the veil!

Don’t forget! The next set of boudoir mini sessions are coming up on July 12 in Champaign! You can book your time slot HERE. Please join us!

Urbana Hotel Boudoir Sessions | Pre-Holiday Sessions

Hotness coming right up! Check out these confident and lovely ladies who joined me for boudoir mini sessions in November, ahead of the holiday rush. I love this particular suite we had for the furniture, headboard, and dark gray accent wall it provided. Modern & classy!

Holiday Boudoir Mini Sessions | Urbana hotel location with makeup

I ended up adding an extra date to my November boudoir mini session calendar due to the high demand. I love when my clients bring props or things that are important to their significant other to showcase in their photos. I wish you could see the deep red lipstick on one of these fabulous women – wowza! Garter belts and thigh-high stockings are always a nice touch too, though I love me some basic tshirt and panties sets!

Upcoming Boudoir Session Dates

I’m FINALLY getting caught up on some blogging from last year’s mini boudoir sessions. :) I so desperately wish I could show you all the polished faces of the gorgeous women who come to me to create a special gift for their special someone. They all look so fantastic after Brittany from BC Makeup Artistry gets finished with them!
The next boudoir mini sessions will be March 8 at a Champaign hotel location (disclosed upon booking). The other dates will happen every other month if you’re looking to plan ahead for a wedding, anniversary gift or birthday – May, July, September, November (dates TBD). Book your session HERE with a deposit of $100. Can’t wait to meet all the lovely women I get to photograph this year!
