5 Tips to Help you Save for Your Session


Are you stressing out about paying for your boudoir or pin-up session? What if I told you that you can have the best of both worlds… your dream session without the spend guilt!

Well look no further darling, my studio offers tons of safe and easy ways to budget out your Boudoir or Pin-Up session into easy payments! That means you can focus on enjoying your incredible experience and ease off of any worries you might have on spending money to treat your amazing self!

Many of the gorgeous gals that deny themselves the session of their dreams do so because they feel that they need to limit how much they spend on themselves. But the reality is that the average woman will spend $15,000 in her lifetime to look beautiful.

But you know what you can’t put a price on? Feeling beautiful, and that’s why having your own session is so powerful.

I understand that professional photography can feel like a big investment at first, especially if this is your first tango with having your portraits professionally taken. But you shouldn’t have to sacrifice the quality of your photos due to restrictions in budget! That’s why I offer PayPal Credit, Square installments, as well as in house financing to make sure every woman has the opportunity to experience the photoshoot session of their dreams without the concessions! You can contact me now for any questions you might have and I’ll walk you through, one-on-one! It’ll only take 15 minutes and you’ll walk away confident and excited at all the possibilities!

Here are five AMAZING ways you can also save up for your dream session! Having a little money tucked away beforehand will make your decision all the easier!


#1 The 10% Rule

In case you need some kick-starter ideas to save money, you can always try the 10% rule! This means you take 10% of what you make monthly and set it aside in your savings!

10% gives you enough leeway to still live and have fun, but will keep you on track… next stop, Chicago Pin Up and Boudoir Studios!

You can even set a goal with your bank so that you don’t even have to think about it! How awesome it that? Just add in your boudoir/pinup session to your goals and you’ll feel so fulfilled after your session because you really earned it!

#2 Cutting Back

I know when it comes to cutting costs, it’s one of those things that’s much easier said than done. But, with enough dedication and will power, its something that’ll help you accumulate savings pretty quickly.

So for the next few months, maybe look over what you can cut down on… like our Bath and Body works and Victoria Secret Shopping habits... I'm sure you NEED the new seasonal body mist and the $7 for $27 panties, but let's keep our eyes on the prize! Besides! I have tons of wardrobe options to chose from! You don't need to splurge too much on your session wardrobe! Just come with your essentials and we’ll be sure to take care of the rest!

Jokes aside, there are of course things you won’t be able to cut, and that’s not something you should feel guilty about. Just make an effort and I promise it’ll pay off in the long run!

#3 Qapital

This money saving phone application is a favorite of mine and is the perfect choice for you if you’re into fun twists on saving!

You can set up “rules” to help you save without even really realizing it. Some of their options include the “Round Up Rule”, where your charge is rounded up and the spare change from each transaction is added to your savings goal. Another is the “Spend Less Rule”, where you can save the difference if you end up spending less on some of your day-to-day expenses. My personal favorite? The “Guilty Pleasure Rule” where you can enjoy your favorite things while saving at the same time… how fun is that?


#4 Coupon Queen

Coupons are the SMARTEST and, in my opinion, one of the funnest ways to save…

Say what you want, but they’re basically free money!!! Who could say no to that? Coupons are literally everywhere and really add up over time. Now I’m not saying you need to turn your life into an episode of THC’s “Extreme Couponing”, but making them a shopping habit never hurt anyone.


Just checking twice online or in mailed coupon booklets can make a word of a difference! There are coupons for pretty much EVERYTHING, you just have to know where to look! Retailmenot.com and https://www.coupons.com are great resources for both online and grocery purchases!

Trust me, a 'few dollars here and a couple cents there' add up and bring you all the more closer to your fabulous boudoir or pin-up session!

#5  Eat in Tonight!

I know that we get caught up with life sometimes and packing our lunch or cooking dinner can feel like a nuisance, but don’t be so quick to dial takeout or slip over to the closest restaurant.

Cooking at home is a great time to reflect, listen to podcasts, catch up on all the new Netflix releases, and so on. It’s also a great way to save money and make healthier food decisions. Plus, we both know you look adorable in an apron, so make sure you show it off!

I know that saving can often seem difficult or impossible when you have so many life events happening simultaneously. But if you’re passionate about having your own incredible photo shoot experience at Chicago Pinup Boudoir Studios, it’s absolutely doable.

And don’t forget about the incredible payment plan options we have designed to help make your dream pin-up or boudoir experience a reality! Just schedule a call today and we can go over everything! Whether its PayPal Credit, Square installments, or via in house financing, we can help you begin your empowering journey, today!
