Capturing romantic images with these three things in mind
When I saw my friend Casey share her excitement on her new ink, a hand-drawn gorgeous black and white rose tattoo on her shoulder, my first thought was how much I needed to photograph her. So, trying my best to not sound like a creeper (HA!), I talked about how much I sincerely loved her rose tattoo, and that I had a vision to photograph her using it as our theme.
Knowing her interest in fashion, I explained a little bit about my vision for her session's styling:
"So, I'm thinking 'classy boudoir' where your photos are a series of portraits. It's just you, an off-the-shoulder blouse, pretty knee-high socks and we'll let the photo creativity flow from there... sounds fun?"
And, what I really wanted Casey to know is that classy boudoir doesn't have to mean photographing her in lingerie or focusing on her nudity. To me, boudoir photography is more interesting when it leaves us curious for more. Romantic sessions should be captured with these three things in mind:
// Posing that is provocative but not exposed
// Wardrobe that is comfortable but revealing
// Props that are meaningful to your lifestyle, which eludes to confidence
Whether you want these images for yourself, or to create a flirty album for your spouse, I would be thrilled to help you capture the spice, all the details, and the newfound confidence a classy boudoir session can bring.
