Lora’s floral crown was stunning of course, but even more impressive was the beautiful floral necklace she made for our handsome white stallion! The shoot started taking on a princess bride feeling which we loved! But I also loved working with Amy because with her nose ring and asymmetrical hair, we still kept the style very Portland!

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!
