Every so often we have some clients that come to our studio with 5 bags of clothes, lingerie, shoes, you know, the works- and saying "I know I brought too much, but I just wanted to make sure we had options." Music to my ears! It thrills me when a client turns herself over to the process, that's when we really find the space and creativity to make some amazing images. I love being able to sift through piles of a client's wardrobe and let my head go a little bit. Something awesome happens when a clients trusts that we will make them look beautiful. Don't get me wrong, it's great when a client has ideas or inspiration to work from, but if you are trying to copy and exact pose of a 6'1" supermodel that weighs 100 pounds, its definitely going to lose some of the magic of "you." The images below are of Shannon, our makeup artist. Granted, I've shot her photos a hundred times. Something is very different about the woman in these images though... She trusted me completely, and she gave herself permission to feel beautiful. Does that mean you feel it the entire time, hell no! You're going to feel silly, awkward, and have an "I can't believe I'm doing this" moment, but as long as you give yourself that permission to experience feeling good about yourself- even just for a few minutes, something changes in you. There's nothing sexier and more beautiful than a woman that feels confidence from within. These are some images shot at our awesome new studio located in Collingswood, New Jersey. We made use of both the front and back porches, as well as our beautiful boudoir set. Shannon brought with her a long, white, crochet dress she's had in her closet for years. As soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to do. Loveeeeee these images. For reals.
We also used a lacy bodysuit we had here at the studio, along with a cute leather jacket from Shannon's wardrobe. I think these images also show that you don't need to show a ton of skin to look sexy.
So excited!! This morning I work up to see that some of the images that we shot with Kristen this past fall were featured on The Boudoir Forum! TheBoudoirForum.com is an online resource for both professional boudoir photographers and those just starting out in the field. The site and blog serve as a place for inspiration, knowledge and building relationships in our little "boudie" community. So, it's an incredible honor to have our images showcased along side of some of my favorite photographer's work. Make sure you stop by www.TheBoudoirForum.com and leave us a little blog love! PS... You can see all the images from Kristen's shoot in this post from October 9th- Kristen's Sexy Photo Shoot!
I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this woman. She is fabulous in every sense of the word. We first me Desiree a couple years ago when she came to our studio for a shoot. She was quiet and kind of shy, but we definitely got her our of her shell a little. Her hubby loved the pics so much, he asked her to come back and do a book of nudes for him for his birthday! I gotta tell you, Des worked her tail off doing Turbo Fire ( I loved following her progress via FB, totally inspirational), got in the best shape of her life, and booked the shoot. She came loaded with a bag of goodies, lingerie, shoes, and jewelry and left the rest up to us. I love when a client trusts us enough to let us run wild with ideas. Here are a few of my favorites from her session, pretty sexy stuff, don't ya think? Thank you so much Des for allowing us to share your photos!
