I love when I get to do glamor and boudoir photography for moms! There’s just a level of confidence and self-awareness that mothers posses.

This beautiful bride to be contacted me to help her make a very special gift for her groom. She warned me that she had done a boudoir photoshoot before and had only liked one image from the whole shoot! So of course I was a little nervous… But once we got started I knew we’d get some good ones. 🙂
I love how much variety we got into just an hour long photoshoot in my studio! We got some beautiful bridal portraits with her blusher veil – I love that she wasn’t all in white for those shots and kind of incorporated in some of her wedding colors. She also brought in a scandalous romance novel that her fiance has customized for her. (The names/nicknames and locations can be customized so you have a romance novel just for you!) And of course we had to go with a strong red lip to match her romantic red lingerie!
Umm…. so this one was a little shocking for me. This beautiful woman was given a makeover and photoshoot by her awesome mom for her 40th birthday! I should have asked to see her driver’s license because I feel like maybe they’re playing a practical joke on me? I would seriously think this woman was in her twenties if I had to guess. It must just be some clean living or just really great genes… or both!
So, I’m still figuring what to call this genre of portraiture. In the past, I always used the term “boudoir photography” but I don’t think that’s really accurate for most of my clients. Maybe contemporary glamour or beauty photography? What do you think? Anyway, whatever you wanna call it, my goal is to make each woman look her best and know how beautiful she is. We all have our own beauty and allure, my job is to bring it out!
I had the extraordinary pleasure of photographing Angela Maitland – founder of Quintessential Productions and the Annual Diamond Tea. Angela contacted me a few months ago to see if I’d be interested in photographing the Diamond Tea this October at the Nines Hotel. I attended last year with my friend Dyana (Thanks Dyana!) so I was absolutely delighted that she wanted me to capture her gorgeous English High Tea! As an extra bonus, I get to be an exhibitor this year as well! I’m just a little bit excited. (Notice the exclamation marks)
