Carefree & Classy Boudoir Session

June 11th, 2013

Some people just fall right into the poses and the look comes natural.  Being as relaxed and confident as possible is the key to having a ton of gorgeous boudoir photos to choose from.  I am usually a huge fan of black & white boudoir photos, but in this case, there were so many color […]

 

Some people just fall right into the poses and the look comes natural.  Being as relaxed and confident as possible is the key to having a ton of gorgeous boudoir photos to choose from.  I am usually a huge fan of black & white boudoir photos, but in this case, there were so many color ones that I loved.  Here’s some of my favorite photos from this Worthington boudoir shoot.

Boudoir Mini Sessions

May 24th, 2013

During our Boudoir Day events, which are held 3-4 times each year, ladies receive professional makeup, lashes, champagne, and a mini boudoir shoot at a hotel suite.  I get asked a lot about how many images are to be expected from a session that’s only 20 minutes long.  Over the years, I’ve learned to work […]

 

During our Boudoir Day events, which are held 3-4 times each year, ladies receive professional makeup, lashes, champagne, and a mini boudoir shoot at a hotel suite.  I get asked a lot about how many images are to be expected from a session that’s only 20 minutes long.  Over the years, I’ve learned to work very quickly while maintaining a relaxed and fun vibe for the session.  I also love to manipulate a single pose into several different shots, angles, & crops.  While the shoot always seems to go by too fast, you can expect around 30 final images (give or take a few) plus some black & white versions, from our boudoir mini shoots.  Here’s some of my favorites from a session at our recent Boudoir Day earlier this month.

Loving Huge Windows for Boudoir!

For Miss A’s shoot, I absolutely fell in love with the natural light coming in from the huge window in her bedroom.  It was gorgeous and created such a beautiful, airy look to the boudoir photographs we created. Miss A did a fabulous job at just relaxing into the poses I was coaching her through, and we had a great time coming up with some new ideas together!  Here’s some of my favorites from her Grandview boudoir photography session.

Celebrate the New YOU with Boudoir

If you’ve been working hard on a weight-loss […]

Classy Black & White Boudoir

Ms. S’s boudoir session was different from any other I had ever done in the past. It was early January and we had big plans of going out in the snow to a secluded area for some of her photos! We were both very cold…her more so than me!…and despite getting both our vehicles stuck […]

 

Ms. S’s boudoir session was different from any other I had ever done in the past. It was early January and we had big plans of going out in the snow to a secluded area for some of her photos! We were both very cold…her more so than me!…and despite getting both our vehicles stuck in the snow, I would say it was a fabulous shoot! Ms S was such a trouper! I love how some of her photos turned out in the black and white version. Here’s some of my favorites:

Exceptional Boudoir Images in your Everyday Bedroom

December 20th, 2012

What I hear a lot when I’m planning custom boudoir shoots with my clients is “my house isn’t anything special”.  Despite what you might think, you really don’t need a spectacular room in order to get great photos. I’m very used to working with small spaces and less-than-elaborate layouts. It’s great if you can clear […]

 

What I hear a lot when I’m planning custom boudoir shoots with my clients is “my house isn’t anything special”.  Despite what you might think, you really don’t need a spectacular room in order to get great photos. I’m very used to working with small spaces and less-than-elaborate layouts. It’s great if you can clear away any clutter, and it’s always an extra added perk if you have a nice window we can use for some natural light, but I do bring studio lights in and can work in just about any lighting situation.

Miss A.’s private session was exactly this scenario. We actually used her fiance’s apartment bedroom, which had a great side window, and here are some of the stunning portraits we got from her session!

Outdoor Boudoir Sessions {Columbus Ohio Boudoir Photography}

August 23rd, 2012

Finding an outdoor setting that’s still private and secluded was the only tricky party about this boudoir shoot, but once we did, we were able to get some amazing shots that are different than most boudoir sessions.  For a boudoir shoot, being outdoors can not only allow for beautiful natural lighting, but it can also […]

 

Finding an outdoor setting that’s still private and secluded was the only tricky party about this boudoir shoot, but once we did, we were able to get some amazing shots that are different than most boudoir sessions.  For a boudoir shoot, being outdoors can not only allow for beautiful natural lighting, but it can also add an exotic feel to the images.  For this bride, we were able to create the perfect groom’s gift that’s personal and unique, and we had a blast doing it.
