How To Afford Your Boudoir Session – Virginia Beach Boudoir Photographer

Picture it. If you are reading this, then at some point you came across my work. More than likely it was in my super awesome Facebook Group. But maybe it was on Instagram. Maybe you found me on Google, or a friend of yours is a Peach. However you got here, chances are you did some slight stalking…don’t we all? You LOVED what you saw and the testimonies from other Peaches were speaking straight to your soul. You got SUPER excited about becoming a Peach yourself, reached out to me, received my booking info….and then you felt a pit in your stomach when you saw the investment.

Let me start by saying you are not alone. Every Peach has faced this. And every Peach you see has chosen to make this investment in herself. If you are anything like me, “treat yo self 2018” is hard. Treating yourself or spending money on anything outside of NEEDS is not so easy. The only free pass is that damn $1-$5 aisle at Target. And let’s be real, even that starts to bring on the guilt as it piles up in the cart. I’m not sure why it’s so hard to do things for OURSELVES.

Have no fear! The Queen Peach is here to save the day. Most women don’t even realize I HAVE payment plans. Others don’t understand them until we talk in person at your Reveal. I’ve decided it’s time to break things down nice and easy. I’m here to tell you How To Afford Your Boudoir Session.

The Boudie Bank

Lets start with the easiest option ever. The Boudie Bank. When it comes to How To Afford Your Boudoir Session, this is the FIRST place you want to start! The Boudie Bank allows you to make payments on YOUR terms. How much each payment is, and how often you have to pay it. You set the rules. Once you choose your date, you let me know how much you want to put in your Boudie Bank and how often. The invoices go out automatically and you end up with a nice little (sometimes big!) credit at your Reveal Session. Throw a little towards it here and there or pay a set amount each month – the good thing is, it’s TOTALLY up to you!

I’m terrible at math, but I’m going to try to break this down and make it easy =]

You book a session 5 months from now. And you can manage $50 a week to put into your Boudie Bank. When you get to your Reveal Session you will already have $1000 in credit! That makes your payments AFTER your Reveal way smaller =]

This Peach <—– took full advantage of the Boudie Bank. Her wedding was the following fall and she knew when she needed her order by. So she booked her session nearly a year out, and made small payments each month. To her she said it was just like having an extra utility bill for a little bit. Totally do-able. After her session she still made one more payment while she waited for her Reveal. When she got to her Reveal Session, she nearly had her entire order already paid for!

That’s how you use the Boudie Bank!

Payment Plans

My interest-free payment plans help SO MANY Peaches bring their goodies home. Depending on what your order total is, you can get take advantage of my 3, 6, 9, 12 or 15 month payment plans. We do the math at your Reveal and you only pay the first payment that day. Your invoices are sent out monthly (or every 2 weeks if you want). Additionally, you also have access to all of your invoices at all times. A lot of the time, Peaches will get a little bonus at work and throw that towards an invoice. Getting their order to them faster.

The best way to do things is to take advantage of BOTH options. If you book your session 6-9 months out, that gives you plenty of time to build up your Boudie Bank. After your Reveal session, your remaining payments will be MUCH smaller!

Other Options

So that’s it! Now you know How To Afford Your Boudoir Session! There are two other options that I always tell my Peaches about. One being PayPal Credit. Taking advantage of this means you pay your order off with me right away. You get your products faster and you make the payments on your own time! PayPal Credit is awesome, I actually use it myself ALL the time. The 6 months 0% interest is revolving. With credit cards, that intro 0% interest is usually for the first 3-6 months that you have the card. But with PayPal credit, even 2 years from now if you make a purchase you’ll get 0% interest on it. It’s great!

There are also tons of card options out there. Citi has a few cards that do 18-21 months of 0% interest. That REALLY stretches out your payments (making them smaller), but you pay me right away so I can order all of your goodies =] And lets be real, EVERY Peach wants her order as fast as she can get it!

    Option 5…. put it on your man’s card 💁🏻‍♀️ That’s what I’m about to do… then once he sees the pics he will forget all about it 🙂
    *Disclaimer: I used the payment plans for my first time as a peach and he LOVES that book which boosted my confidence EVEN MORE than Clara already had. It’s not my fault I’m a repeat peach, so I think he will be okay… 🙃

  4. Jennifer Hartman says:

    This is a great way to be able to afford to do this. I didn’t know you offered these payment plan options. Definitely looking forward to booking with you in the future.

    You make it so easy to afford and with many options that most do not. I hope to set a date soon, but I’m also at looking to buy a house. Hopefully I can get them both next year!

  9. Christina says:

    Stashing away cash is literally the only way! Im going to want to buy a little bit of everything, but between buying a house, paying for a wedding, back in school, and 2 kids there is absolutely no way I could just drop that kind of money and feel good about it. $50 a week in my savings account and we should be good to go come end of January!

    Love this idea! How far out can you book?

    • Clara says:
