A Tradition in the Making {New Braunfels Photographer}

Originally uploaded by lisablaschke
Valentine's Day is a little bit more than a month away and, traditionally, it's been a day for men to buy roses and chocolates for their sweethearts. You can't really give a guy flowers and he would never really appreciate the value of a good box of chocolates, other than taking a bite out of each one and putting them back -- except the caramel, which would end up in their stomach.

I once gave my husband an office chair for Valentine's Day. Usually I give him books or something boring and forgettable.

However, recently the trend in Valentine's Day gifts for guys is right up my alley. More and more women are stripping down to their skivvies and posing for private yet tasteful images of themselves to give to their hubby. Normal women. We're not talking supermodels or 20-year-olds. Mothers, grandmothers, teachers, doctors, PTA volunteers, and even Pastors wives are opting for boudoir photography, not just to give to their spouses, but to feel good about themselves as well.

Advances in Photoshop mean it's easier than ever to remove blemishes, hide flaws, and make anyone look like a cover model for Cosmo. Creative posing techniques can disguise areas that make a woman feel self-conscious and bring out the beauty and confidence every woman deserves.

I'm hoping to put together a day of fun for a handful of ladies ready to jump on this opportunity -- I have room for just a few of you. We'll do it January 23 at a location to be announced to the few who book their day of fun. We'll have a stylist on hand to help you with make-up. We'll have chocolate, wine and music.

E-mail me if you're interested in taking part in what's surely to be a Lisa on Location annual Valentine's tradition.
