Right in the middle of the holiday season, the lovely Ms. S took the time to come down to my studio for some smokin’ hot boudoir photos. She wanted to give her hubby-to-be something special in his stocking. I retouched and edited some of my favorite images in record time to make sure she got her prints by Christmas. She says he loved them… they were his favorite gift!
(An aside: Most women think of boudoir photos as a great wedding gift for their future husbands (and they are!) but guys love boudoir photos any time: Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, Valentines Day, days that end in “y”, you name it! Boudoir photography has its origins in wartime pin-up photos that ladies sent to their men overseas, and given that we have lots of troops deployed right now, this is still a pretty popular practice. I’ve also known women who have just had boudoir sessions done for themselves… to celebrate their bodies, their femininity, their sexuality, and their courage. That’s why boudoir sessions are some of my favorites!)
Enjoy the photos!
Ms. S had her hair curled and coiffed by my favorite stylist, Heidi, who did an amazing job. I love it when my clients have their hair and/or makeup done at the studio… it gives us more time to talk, brainstorm, and relax before the session. Ms. S also brought a friend, who provided extra encouragement and hilarious commentary. This is a great idea if you’re nervous about shooting but have a girlfriend you really trust. It (and maybe a swig of aged whiskey) can really help take the edge off.
I loved the outfits Ms. S brought with her… I’m always amazed by the different and creative lingerie and props my clients bring. I’m starting to collect vintage jewelry, robes, and corsets for some extra options. We picked five from the selection Ms. S brought with her and had a great time thinking of different poses for each outfit.
Ms. S, you looked gorgeous and I loved getting to know you. Thank you for a fabulous session!
