Boudoir Photo Session
Tips! and some of my fav shots I want to recreate!
I have my session booked for November, here are some of my favourite boudoir type shots that I would like to recreate. I think I may need a shot or ten LOL before but I think I can do it!
Here is a recent post I read on the internet recently regarding tips from a photographer re boudoir photo session.
****Every time I have a boudoir session shoot for a girl wanting to do it for the special man in her life, the end result is always so much more rewarding. When they see the photos laid out in a professional book format, they soon realize that they not only did it for him, they become ecstatic that they did it for themselves!
For me, boudoir photography is about setting, light, and angles. While some girls look good at certain angles and in certain light, height, size, shape, skin tone, hair, and even what they are sitting/laying on can determine can determine each different outcome. It’s almost never the same from one model to the next. I do NOT do full nude photography. At the most, the client will remove a top or bra, but be required to cover herself up somehow so the shot is still artistic in nature. Covering up in something sheer or even by the client’s own hands is acceptable as long as it’s done in a tasteful and artistic manner.
I offer an on-location boudoir shoot either at a home studio or at a hotel which the bride reserves and pays for. If the bride prefers that the home studio is at her home, arrangements can usually be made to accommodate this request. The key to shooting boudoir photos is comfort. Choosing to have a boudoir session, it can make a woman feel anxious or very nervous in front of the camera and this will most certainly show in the photographs. The reason for the home studio as opposed to a normal studio is that in a home environment, women tend to be much more relaxed. Here are my suggestions for preparing for your boudoir shoot:
Wardrobe – Try to have at least 8-10 changes. Sometimes, a nice dress shirt belonging to your fiancé/husband/boyfriend is nice and makes the photos very personal. Also, jerseys from a favorite team either he himself, or both of you share. If he is into any certain sports like hunting, golf, snowboarding, etc. possibly bringing some sort of prop to identify this sport will be good. Additionally, fun little outfits such as corsets, heels, lacy lingerie are always a favorite wardrobe choice when doing boudoir photographs.
Hair – Wearing hair down is always best for this type of shoot. Because you will be moving around so much and laying on your back, holding your head up by your hand (which puts your hand in your hair), and even possibly getting your hair wet in a pool or bathtub… it’s always best to wear it down so you are not constantly fixing it during the shoot.
Makeup – I encourage all of my models to go heavy on your foundation, powder, bronzer, and blush. You’ll also need your powder throughout the day to reduce the shine that develops as we work. Additionally, I suggest that you go very heavy and dark on the lids of your eyes and either do light liner or no liner at all on the lower lid. Heavier than usual on the mascara is always good too. Lastly bring several different shades of lipstick; dark mattes, frosts, and glosses are the best.
Most importantly, when doing boudoir photography, you want to have fun and feel relaxed. The more comfortable you are, the better your photos will turn out! *****
Ask a Question
Fans or flowers?
Originally I considered the feather fans as feathers are my theme. I wasnt too pushed about flowers being honest. Im not having flowers for my centerpieces. As the bridesmaids are wearing purple I wanted them to have white bouquets and me to have a purple one. I do like the fans but wondered what you thought? If they carry fans would it look strange then if I had a purple bouquet? Im not carrying a fan I dont think. The more I think of it I really like the 40s theme as Im having a birdcage I think I might do fingerwaves in my hair. So I could possibly get away with a fan but I do get a bouquet included in my wedding package. Anyway let me know your thoughts on this please?

HELP PLEASE: What do I do re OOT bags for guests when I am arriving with them?
So I have a bit of a problem I am going to be on the same flight as all of my guests when we all arrive together to the hotel in Cancun. My problem is that I have wedding bags which I wanted ideally to be in the rooms when guests check in. But as I am arriving with them I dont think this is going to be possible. I dont want to ship the bags to Mexico on the off chance they dont arrive, or they do and stuff gets misplaced. I have really nice items in the bags to give out and really wanted them to be in the rooms. But I dont know what I can do this means when I arrive I have to open my bags up as soon as I hit my own room (with 2 kids in tow) and Fh and put the bags together then find out the rooms of everyone and get them delivered hoping that everyone will still be in their rooms by then. It sounds like a mess to me already. I was thinking what if I put a welcome note in the room saying I have a special gift bag for them if one of them could come to collect it to room ____ (my room number) or what would you do? Please help me out here kinda stuck on ideas of what I could do!
Got their gifts today!
Received the girls necklaces and bracelets today and I really like them. I hope they will too I think they will be stunning on them on the day with the purple dresses! Im also going to do scrapbooks for them with all the letters that I have receievd from them and other stuff through the years! Making scrapbooks and photo collage are my thing.
Sorted out my ebay dispute!
Earrings are on route!
The earrings I really really wanted and bought on ebay but never got (long story) but anyway reported it to ebay heard from the company and I shall be receiving them soon. So relieved the earrings I originally really wanted I will get! I hope it all comes together over all now!
**UPDATE I never got those earrings the company were absolutely a nightmare and HORRIBLE to deal with and I would never deal with them again they go by the name of Eden Collection or Eden Moment or assholes as I prefer to call them
Sexy ebay buys!
Looking forward to FHs face when he sees these!
Some more ebay buys! I have been looking for some nice monokinis for awhile now. Got my hands on these two! I also wanted a hooded top with personalisation on the back - still not sure what I will put here any ideas - something like "Soon to be Mrs. _____" ?? Got this velour sweatsuit and I can wear it travelling to Cancun - comfort all the way! He will die when he reads the back and he will love the monokinis!
Also velour sweatsuit pink or black? What do you think?
Cute hairbands for flowergirls!

Another great ebay find for my 2 daughters to wear - perfectly goes with my butterfly and purple theme! Love it! Now I hope Harley will be able to keep it on for the ceremony without wanting to rip it off her head!
Mother of the Bride dresses bought!
Another thing off the list!
So my mom finally decided on 2 of the 4 dresses she liked on www.bestbridalprices.com I then purchased them with www.marisanicolebridal.com as she was cheaper and I am getting my bridesmaid dresses, my own dress and all our shoes and my veil and the flowergirl dresses from her. She is so nice to deal with if you do deal with her tell her Lenore sent you!
All the dresses are bridesmaid cocktail style dresses!
