Naughty and Nice Christmas Boudoir Minis 2018

We’ve never done a special like this one! Santa checked his list, and he checked it twice. You were as both Naughty and Nice! Get your Christmas shopping done EARLY with a gift your special someone would never expect. You could even surprise yourself!

It’s perfect for ladies who have never done a boudoir session and want to see what it’s all about. And, for all our Bellas who have done a session, it’s a great way to get some updated photos and a little extra surprise this Christmas. Plus, we will be offering a few albums and products that are ONLY available at the event. You’ll get to come to our studio, enjoy some sips and sweets, rock your 20 minute mini session, hang out for a little bit enjoying the view from our riverside studio, and FINALLY, see and order your photos that night. Here’s the special deal for this boudoir mini event:

Tuesday and Wednesday, November 27 & 28th

Our Naughty List Package is $300 ($324 with tax) and includes:

– 20 minute mini photo session with our expert boudoir photographers
– You Rocking Your Fav Outfit
– Chic Box with 5 of your favorite images (add more for ONLY $30 each)
– Private viewing and ordering session of your images THAT NIGHT

Select products will be available to purchase in time for Christmas. After your shoot, you’ll get to see and order your products before you leave. Orders must be placed that night. Half the session fee is required in order to secure your time slot! The remaining balance is due one week before your session So, what are you waiting for?

What is the Chic Box? It is a unique way to display your sexy photos but still keep it secret in a keepsake box. You get to choose the fabric to reflect your personality from subtle sexy to bright and bold. Each 5×7 image is professionally printed and mounted to a black styrene, so it’s not your average photo print.

    mellBella is constantly evolving and working to become better artists, photographers, and community members. We started in 2010 by doing a few boudoir sessions under our brother company, Richard Bell Photography.  We decided to form our own feminine brand and launched  mellBella Photography in January 2011. Since then we’ve moved locations, added space & sets, photographed hundreds of women,  partnered and supported local businesses and non profits, and so much more. This year, we even drastically changed our hair from the above photo… Wanda cut it all off  and went super short and funky. But Mell Bell changed from blue to purply pink or “aggressive fuchsia.”

    Even though some things change, our goal is still the same. To coach and cheer on our clients on a journey from from self conscious to confident, from embarrassed to empowered. To create art specifically for the eyes of only a few people. To fight pornography with images that celebrate and honor the subject.
