When it comes to boudoir shoots, a little liquid courage can go a long way. So, when this first-timer walked in with a glass of wine, I was all for it. Yes, it may be awkward at first, but I love how my clients trust me to make intimate shoots as comfortable as can be. In the end, it’s all about capturing their sexy side and documenting a beautiful legacy, and this woman was glamorous from the start.
Taking pictures for her husband’s birthday at Four Seasons Hotel Denver, she wanted to set the scene at a “neutral” location and place they both enjoy attending. And although her man wanted to take sexy pictures of her, she instead wanted to own the situation and surprise her hubby with timeless, sensual photos.
I loved how she brought one of her husband’s shirts, donned a long strand of Gatsby-inspired pearls, picked her favorite lingerie pieces from the drawer and slipped on her highest of heels. And those jean shorts? Hot mama!
In case you’re wondering how this Colorado mom stays in the amazing shape she’s in, she loves cycling, running, hiking, and doing outdoor bootcamps in the summer and skiing and yoga in the winter. Most confident in her derriere and legs, she wanted some of the poses to capitalize on some of her best assets (no pun intended). At the end of the shoot, we tried some “covertly” nude poses that turned out to be fully nude, beautiful and radiating with confidence.
Her hair and makeup was done by Keegan Steele of Steele the Spotlight, who I highly recommend. (Keegan’s airbrush foundation is a hit and so relaxing!)
I have to say it- I freaking LOVE my job. In fact, there are times when it hardly feels like work at all. In the case of this Colorado outdoor boudoir photo shoot with one of our very own native goddesses, that was most definitely the case. It’s funny because I actually had no idea what I was getting myself into when I headed out for this session. I knew my client was gorgeous and that we were going to do the shoot at her house, but that was pretty much all the information I had. Oh and her address. When I arrived and asked to see her “outfits” she answered with a grin and a “how does my birthday suite sound?” Well alrighty then! She proceeded to tell me that she had already done a traditional boudoir session with some friends and that she had a totally different idea this time around. Her plan was to hike down into the woods behind her house and do some classy nude-oir boudoir. I was more than game. As soon as we got started I was in photographer’s heaven. Talk about being in my element! I had a client that might as well be a model (in that she needed basically no direction from me) and I had a whole wild wilderness to frame her with. I, myself, am a mountain girl at heart and between the delicious scenery, the perfect light, and a perfect body with natural posing ability, I felt like I should have been paying her for helping me to build my boudoir portfolio! I think I may have just found a new niche. What better place on earth than Colorado to start blowing up an outdoor boudoir business? Ummmm….??? Exactly. Need I say more? These images can speak for themselves.
Speaking of working in my clients homes for their boudoir photography sessions, I recently worked with a fantastic client at her equally fantastic home! The home was fully loaded with big windows letting in lots of soft light, vast hard wood floors, gorgeous art, and great furniture to work with, I was in “studio” heaven with this natural beauty! We did her boudoir shoot in two parts, first in two different sexy dresses; a long black one and a short grey one, both showing off her gorgeous long legs. After that, we moved into the “boudoir” section with some sexy little lingerie numbers paired with great shoes (always great shoes!). We utilized a lot of different spaces in her home and the images turned out beyond wonderfully! I love it when everything comes together in a way that I have a great model/client, a great space, ample time to be creative, and an easy & comfortable connection with my client. It makes being a boudoir photographer really FUN! I seriously love my job so much, and it’s clients like this that make it even that much more enjoyable. Thank you again to all of my beautiful clients for trusting me and for inviting me into your homes. It is a pleasure working with you all. And while I’m at it, a quick shout-out to Google. Thank you, Google, for sending all of these fabulous women my way.
