A few weeks ago, I was honored to photograph 2 boudoir sessions at a crazy awesome private location.  When I showed up, I was fully anticipating doing their shoots in one of the bedrooms or possibly using a sofa, but one look at their outdoor area had me sold!  We had to do the photos there!   It’s not everyday that it works out to do these types of photos outside, but it really adds a unique exotic feel to the photos that I just love.  I’m so thankful for wonderful weather that day, and extremely brave clients! :)  Here’s a few of my favorites from the first of the two sessions…

Boudoir Calendar Shoot

A few weeks back I had the privilege of doing a custom calendar shoot for one of my boudoir clients.  She came to me with the idea of a different theme/look for each month, and was going to present it to her fiance as a gift.  Of course I was all excited about the idea and thought it sounded really fun!  With Meg on the job providing a gorgeous look, we were all set to work with our many props and boudoir outfits.  With just a little extra time added to our standard session, we were able to accomplish a complete 12-month calendar shoot.  Here’s some of my favorite photographs…

 

This one is my all-time favorite shot!

Boudoir Outfit Ideas

March 7th, 2012

I’m loving my Pinterest board of boudoir outfits so far!  I think I’m really excited to do a shoot with this kind of soft, vintage vibe.  It’s just so…pretty.

Your bridal boudoir session is a way to capture a time in your life that’s so special and remember what you looked like forever. Put a collection of your favorite photos in a Little Black Book and it’s also a wonderful wedding gift to your fiance.

It’s sometimes hard to know what to wear for a shoot like this. If you’re like most brides, you’re probably going to go out and buy something special for your honeymoon, and that’s exactly what you can wear for your bridal boudoir session! If you need some ideas, Victoria Secret has an entire line of gorgeous bridal lingerie.

Here’s some samples of VS collection

We also have a local Columbus Ohio boutique located in the Short North called Undone. They carry several lines of beautiful European designed lingerie. The following are all items carried in their shop that I think would be great for a bridal boudoir shoot!

Lucy B | Vintage Inspired Lingerie

I know. I’ve been a horrible blogger this summer! Wedding season hit full swing and some things got pushed to the sidelines. But that’s not to say I haven’t been hard at work and making lots of improvements. I’m excited to bring you our new blog series of weekly featured vendors, ideas, styles & trends […]

 

I know. I’ve been a horrible blogger this summer! Wedding season hit full swing and some things got pushed to the sidelines. But that’s not to say I haven’t been hard at work and making lots of improvements. I’m excited to bring you our new blog series of weekly featured vendors, ideas, styles & trends to keep you up to date on all the happenings in boudoir photography!

The first thing I’d like to share with you is a great find I stumbled across online. If you’d like a 1950′s Pin-Up look for your boudoir session and are looking for vintage inspired lingerie and accessories, Lucy B’s is a terrific place to visit! They are based out of Los Angeles, which is also where they make all of their products, however purchases are available online for those of us who aren’t lucky enough to live in sunny California. :)

They’ve been featured in top magazines such as InStyle, Lucky, Intima, 944, Lingerie, and more! Prices are reasonable with most outfits ranging from $30′s-$80′s, and they even have a bridal collection for those of you who are soon-to-be married and looking to do a boudoir shoot as a gift to your fiance.

Happy shopping!
