Breast Cancer Awareness Month | Boudoir by Wallflower | Boudoir Photography in Wichita, KS

I meet a lot of truly remarkable women through my work.  So many have shared their stories with me, and every one of them gives me more and more of a reason to keep doing what I do.  To me, boudoir photography has never been just about beautiful images…it’s about what those images mean to the women who are in them.  For some, it means reconnecting with a part of themselves they’v ...[Read More]

Kayla! | Boudoir by Wallflower | Wichita, KS Boudoir Photography

I am SO excited to finally share these!  This incredibly gorgeous and wildly talented woman is Kayla, my studio-exclusive hair and makeup artist!  A lot of you know her from your sessions, and I finally got the chance to have her in for a session of her own.  If you don’t know her yet, I hope you will soon :) She’s the best. Kayla has spent the past year giving my clients a pampering e ...[Read More]

To feel beautiful | Boudoir by Wallflower | Wichita, KS Boudoir Photography

There are a million reasons to come in for a session at Boudoir by Wallflower.  A lot of my clients need a day away – from kids, from work, from stress.  Then there are those who come in for the perfect gift for that special someone in their life (can’t beat it!).  More still have been in the role as doctor, teacher, businesswoman, etc. for so long that they feel like they’ve los ...[Read More]

All things new! | Boudoir by Wallflower | Wichita, KS Boudoir Photography

There is so much “new” to talk about, I hardly know where to begin.  My new studio is finished and all ready for you!  It is the most beautiful space I have ever worked in…it’s exactly what it was designed to be: the perfect setting for women to feel gorgeous and sexy and absolutely comfortable for their boudoir session. Let me start with a statement.  I love boudoir photog ...[Read More]

All moved out! | Boudoir by Wallflower | Wichita, Kansas Boudoir Photography

Saying goodbye to this enormous studio this weekend! Sixteen truckloads later, we are all moved out. Lots of beautiful images were made here…but I am so excited to open the new studio in just a few short weeks! While I am in transition to the new studio, there will be some times (like today) that I won’t have phones or my computer available, so please bear with me! I will return all ca ...[Read More]

Progress! | Boudoir by Wallflower | Boudoir photography in Wichita, KS

It’s coming along!  Here’s a first look at the inside of the new Wallflower!

Just for you. | Boudoir by Wallflower | Boudoir photography in Wichita, Kansas

I love my clients.  Without you, I would not just be unemployed, I would be missing out on the fulfillment that my work brings me – seeing beauty and confidence erupt out of a typically demure woman, sharing the “I can’t believe that’s me!” excitement when a client sees their images, or handing over a beautifully crafted album that I know will be a source of joy for y ...[Read More]

The Perfect Gift | Boudoir by Wallflower | Wichita, KS Boudoir Photography

This has been the month of brides!  I’ve never photographed so many brides in such a short period of time…I LOVE it! I love when a young bride comes in for a boudoir session because I know she (and her husband!) will look back at these images for decades to come.  While most of my clients are in their 30s, 40s, and 50s, it’s a really beautiful thing when a woman in her 20s has th ...[Read More]

If you only knew… | Boudoir by Wallflower | Boudoir Photography in Wichita, Kansas

This is the cover of one of my favorite books!  I take it to trade shows and expos, I keep it around in the studio, and the digital version is one of the most popular features of my website.  So, what is it?  A book of transformations?  Cinderella stories?  Not at all.  It’s a book that shows women getting the opportunity to shine.  It’s not about me “making women beautiful” ...[Read More]

Light and Lace | Boudoir by Wallflower | Boudoir Photography in Wichita, KS

Just three months and a week until Christmas!  I know, it seems crazy to be posting about a winter holiday when summer isn’t officially over yet…(and I really don’t want to let summer go!).  Still, I want to make sure it’s on your mind so that you don’t miss out on getting a boudoir photo shoot scheduled in time for the perfect gift! My calendar for October and Novemb ...[Read More]

400 | Boudoir by Wallflower | Boudoir Photography in Wichita, KS

As you may have seen on my Facebook page, this lovely lady was the 400th woman I have photographed at Boudoir by Wallflower!  That means so many things to me… It means I am incredibly grateful to all of you that I have worked with and all of you I will work with (soon!). It means that four hundred women have gotten to share this experience, and now belong to the “Boudie Club”!  O ...[Read More]

A note from a beautiful client! | Boudoir by Wallflower | Wichita, Kansas Boudoir Photographer

I cannot thank my clients enough for the amazing notes they send me after their sessions!  It makes my day every single time, and continues to remind me why I do all of this :)  Below is one from a beautiful woman that came in recently:   To say I’m an insecure person is an understatement.  Most people have no idea because of how I carry myself in public and at work.  I actually come across a ...[Read More]

Confessions: Shaunnah | Boudoir by Wallflower | Wichita, Kansas Boudoir Photography

I can’t think of a better way to say, “Welcome home.”  Shaunnah’s husband returned from deployment to the surprise of a lifetime!  Here’s what she had to say about her boudoir photo shoot: “I highly recommend Christina, she did such an amazing job. I wanted to give my husband something very special for our anniversary and for his homecoming from overseas militar ...[Read More]

Wichita, KS Boudoir Photographer | Boudoir by Wallflower

It has been a BUSY year!  With the move to the new studio coming in just a couple of weeks, I thought it may be a good time to look back and post some sessions I didn’t get around to before.  So many beautiful women have come in for their boudoir sessions with me and I wish I had more time to blog about every single one of them! This gorgeous girl gave her hubby a birthday treat with these p ...[Read More]

We’re Moving! | Boudoir by Wallflower | Wichita, KS Boudoir Photography

Huge news!  We are moving to a new studio! Since Boudoir by Wallflower kicked off back in October 2010, we just have not stopped growing!  From our humble beginnings in our small home studio to our current beautiful space, the demand for top-quality boudoir imagery in Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Nebraska has skyrocketed (and I like to think Boudoir by Wallflower had a little something to do wi ...[Read More]

It’s Wedding Season! | Boudoir by Wallflower | Boudoir Photographer in Wichita, KS

I’ve had some incredible boudoir sessions with several summer brides-to-be…the lucky grooms have no idea!  With wedding season in full swing, I’m getting calls and emails almost every day with excited brides wanting to surprise their future husbands.  I call it “The Cure for Cold Feet” – nobody’s going to have even a fleeting second thought after flipping ...[Read More]

Guess what? You’d be perfect for a boudoir shoot! | Boudoir by Wallflower | Boudoir Photography in Wichita, KS

I met a LOT of women at the Women’s Fair this month!  It was wonderful to get to share just a little about what boudoir is and why I’ve built the studio the way I have: all about women, all about beauty. However, it made me sad to hear the reactions of so many women who don’t think they could do a boudoir shoot!  I just wanted to say, “That’s why you NEED to come in!& ...[Read More]
