Hi there! I’m Angie Whitten, owner of You Are That Hot Boudoir Photography; where I make the women I photograph look their very best. I love what I do for so many reasons. The trust and relationships I form with the people who come to me for their photos means so much to me. I love working with my clients to make them not only look their best, but also feel strong, beautiful, and confident.
I take pride in the level of trust and rapport clients develop with me during the pre-session meetings and the sessions themselves. When you hire a photographer, you’re trusting them to capture the memories of your life’s most precious, intimate, and exciting moments. I’m going to go above and beyond to establish a relationship that is more than just point and shoot. I want to get to know you, how you feel, and what you want from your session.
Let me tell you a bit more about why I love doing what I do. I love boudoir photography because it allows me to share my gift with women. Many of the women I photograph have the same insecurities most of us have. Often times, they come in not feeling like the strong, sexy women I know they truly are. That’s why I’ll always find the best way to pose you to let your beauty show and SHINE! I find the best angles from which to shoot your best features. Everyone has great features and I am an expert on capturing them!
And trust me; I know what it’s like to be on the other side of the camera as well. I recently had this experience with my good friend, Jen Rozenbaum (the leader in the industry). I was able to see what my clients go through before, during and after a shoot. I’m going to be honest. I was afraid the night before! I wanted to call and cancel! I’m so glad I didn’t because the images she was able to capture, quite frankly, changed me. I see myself through more loving eyes and recognize the beauty in myself in an accepting and true way!
The transformation my clients go through is something I look forward to every time. I understand how difficult it can be to feel confident. But I always surprise my clients at how much fun they have and how confident they feel after a session. That’s why I do as many of these sessions as I can. If I feel this great about capturing it, imagine how you’ll feel after being the center of attention!
There can be so many questions around boudoir and I promise I will be there to answer them all. What should I bring? I send you a lingerie guide upon booking. What if I don’t own lingerie? I have 2 clothing racks full of wardrobe items you may use. Will you post my pictures online? Only if you want me to, never without permission on each and every image used. What do I do with my hands? (Honestly, the most common question I get LOL)
I promise I will pose you down to your hands!
Instead of packages or session fees I offer “experiences” – and an experience it will be! There are three distinct boudoir experiences to choose from - The Tease, The Flirt, and the Bombshell.
The Tease provides an opportunity to get a quality session that’s quick and fun. In this package, you can come to me with your hair already done and I’ll photograph you for 30 minutes. I’ll show you 20 of your best images that I’ve (very slightly) edited and retouched. You’ll also get an appointment with me to go over your best poses and order the ones you’d like. This experience is priced at $175.
The Flirt gives you more time, more image choices, AND full professional hair and makeup. This is a great way to look and feel your best. This 60-minute session gets you more time for posing, 40 images instead of 20, and your hair and makeup done by a professional artist at my studio. This experience is priced at $275 and it’s a fantastic way to surprise your significant other. You’ll also get an appointment with me to go over your best poses and order the ones you’d like.
The Bombshell is my biggest and best experience, and is prices at $375. This really gives you the chance to be treated like royalty. You’ll get full professional hair and makeup, 90 minutes of photography, and up to 80 images to view. On top of all that, you’ll be able to change your outfit as many times as you want! The Bombshell package lets you have more options and opportunities to show your fierce sexiness and confident beauty. You’ll also get an appointment with me to go over your best poses and order the ones you’d like.
These prices do NOT include digital files or products like albums, canvases, and prints. Those can be purchased if you choose. Most clients choose an Album to showcase their favorites! You’ll also get an appointment with me to go over your best poses and order the ones you’d like. You’ll find working with me to be a rewarding and transformative experience. I want to make it as easy as possible for you to bring forth the courageous, gorgeous woman I know you are. That’s why I’ve made it easy to schedule and work with me. There’s only one catch: I don’t allow any negative self-talk during these sessions! We’re all about filling you with confidence. We’ll smile, we’ll laugh, we may even cry. But we’ll never talk bad about ourselves or the features we have.
As a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography, I know the entire photography process. Not only does this knowledge allow me to take the best quality photos, but I’ve also learned the best ways to tell a story, get unique shots, and help you perform your best in front of the camera. I’m also a member of the Pierce County Professional Photographers Association and Professional Photographers of America. As a member of these groups, I’m surrounded by other talented photographers and we love to share knowledge, tips and tricks with each other. Through these, I’m continually learning ways to get my clients the best portraits and pictures possible.
My studio is in Gig Harbor Washington, near the beautiful Mt. Rainier. I’ve lived in Western Washington my whole life and love the scenery here! Washington is such a beautiful state with mountains, rivers, rural, urban and ocean views. It’s a wonderful place to live and take in the scenery - and for taking pictures, it’s a dream place for me. I recently married the love of my life, Jeff. In my free time, I enjoy singing, cooking, and watching the Seahawks! (Go Hawks!) I’ve also become quite the hockey fan, and love watching Jeff when he plays. Now you've had a chance to get to know me, and I hope I get the opportunity to do the same. So let’s get together over coffee and learn more about each other.
Starbucks is on me :)
