"And now, the latest craze for weddings... Boudoir Photo Sessions."..
What is boudoir, you ask? According to Wikipedia, "Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a lady, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber. In later periods, the boudoir was used as a private drawing room, and was used for other activities, such as embroidery or entertaining intimate acquaintances.". Embroidery???? Ah, not right now, thanks...
Here is a shot I did. The photographer, Shannon Langan is super creative and has LOTS of props. It was a domestic, 50's housewife look, set in the kitchen! Let your imagination guide you, have fun and I am sure it will be a gift that is GREATLY appreciated!
"For His Eyes Only", these sessions give you a chance to show a different part of your personality! Often using props and costumes, lingerie or even less, the bride-to-be can capture her wild side and present the pictures to her groom as a gift.
Makeup for boudoir photo sessions requires a professional application. This is not your usual work look, but a dramatic, much more daring side of you! Anything from themed costumes, Marilyn Munroe, "The Hot Babe" in a swim suit, to icing cupcakes in Merry Widow . It's up to you and your fantasies - or his!
Starting with a flawless complexion with foundation and radiant, light-reflecting powder, you will be preparing for a camera-ready look. I like to do the smoky eye, with a plump and glossy nude lip. Of course, the finishing touch is false lashes. You can choose from a multitude of styles, but bigger is better in this case!
