New boudoir options available!

I’m working on some really great things around here, and I’m excited to tell you about the most exciting change!

I am proud to announce that very soon we are going to have a permanent indoor location for portraits! I still prefer to do most of my sessions outdoors or on location, but in the event of inclement weather (read: winter), I will now have a place to fall back on–plus boudoir sessions are generally better indoors due to the nature of these sessions. I will also have some limited backdrop options if you prefer that look (all new!).

The addition of an indoor studio space also means that I now have a great location for my boudoir sessions… including a bed!! I am super excited about this development and hope that it brings in a lot of new beautiful women to try the boudoir experience at Holly Birch Photography!

My fall schedule is beginning to fill up, so book now, especially if you’re thinking ahead for holiday gifts! Boudoir sessions needed prior to the holidays will need to be scheduled prior to Dec. 1. I can’t wait to hear from some more beautiful ladies in and around Champaign-Urbana!

Mrs. S session | Champaign-Urbana boudoir photography


Mrs. S met me on a Sunday afternoon to do a boudoir session as a gift for her husband. They’ve only been married a few months and have yet to go on their honeymoon, so she thought this would make a great wedding gift upon their departure. She was definitely showing off her stuff, especially once she got more comfortable about 1/3 of the way through the shoot. Overall I think this is one of my favorite boudoir sessions to date because we did a lot of different things and we covered all the aspects of her femininity that we wanted to show off. Thanks for a great session, S!

Miss J Boudoir | Urbana boudoir photography

Miss J Boudoir | Urbana & Champaign boudoir photographer
Miss J told me the same story that I’ve heard several times now… she discovered boudoir photography at some point, loved the idea, but couldn’t find a local Champaign-Urbana photographer who offered boudoir sessions. It makes me so glad I started up www.champaignboudoir.com earlier this year! Unlike my first 4 boudoir clients who are getting married in the near future and wanted a different type of gift to give to their husbands-to-be the day of the wedding, Miss J is already married and wanted a way to remember her young, sexy self before she and her husband start having kids. Fantastic idea, if you ask me!

Miss D | Urbana boudoir session wedding gift

Miss D boudoir
Miss D met me on a perfect October day to shoot a boudoir session that we will turn into a “little black book” of sorts for her husband-to-be. They are getting married later this year, and I can’t think of a more perfect wedding gift! I won’t be showing any face shots here, but I wish you could all see those as well… some of my favorites!

January marathon boudoir photography sessions in Champaign

I’m tossing around the idea of hosting a marathon boudoir day (possibly Jan. 15) at a Champaign hotel sometime in January. For $250 (the new boudoir rate for 2011), you would receive a 1-hour session, unlimited outfit changes, an online password-protected gallery of images, and a $30 credit toward an album or disc of images. Album prices begin at $175 and a disc of 10 fully retouched images is $100. Images will be ready before Valentine’s Day!

I will provide the hotel room, champagne and snacks! There may be other perks as well depending on how full the day gets. I’m limited to 6 sessions during the marathon, but am willing to open up more days if the need arises. To reserve your spot, I need a signed contract and a $100 deposit which will count toward your package total.

Call me 217-737-0971 or email holly [at] hollybirchphotography [dot] com with questions! Don’t be shy! :)
