We often get requests for certain poses, and today we thought we'd share one of our top-requested looks! This is one of our favorite poses for boudoir photo shoots....all of our clients love it! It's a super flattering angle for almost any body type, and just about everyone chooses an image from this pose for their Boudoir Book. It's definitely a go-to favorite!!
We received this super sweet email recently from one of our clients-turned-friends after she received her album proof, and we just had to share with you all! Everything she wrote rings true with our overall mission as photographers for women. We love getting to know so many talented, strong, amazing women and helping them create not only lasting, beautiful images, but a lasting feeling of beauty and empowerment that they can keep with them for a lifetime. Our photography isn't about lingerie or "being sexy"...it's about connection. We want you to connect in the most positive way to yourself, seeing a beauty and strength you may not have known existed! We are so happy that Miss C., along with so many other women, have had this experience with us.
Have a wonderful and happy day, everyone!
"Mr. B LOVED the album! And the best part is he said he had no idea! We both couldn't be more happy, and I just want to thank you again for helping me make this happen! It was such a positive experience and confidence booster for me, and well, a wonderful and special surprise for Mr. B!"
...and that ladies and gentlemen is why we absolutely love our job. I just had to share a little snippet from an email Miss L. sent me last night. She scheduled her session just a few weeks before her wedding and I'm so happy we were able to rush her book so that she could give it to her fiancee (now hubby!) on their wedding day. What a perfect gift!
Thank you Miss L for choosing us as your boudoir photographers and a million thanks for allowing us to share your photos!! You rock!
When we first met Miss M, we were immediately warmed by her sweet spirit, gentle nature and easygoing personality. Like most of our clients, she had never done a boudoir shoot before, but despite her nervousness, she put her trust in us and went with the flow! We just loved photographing her...you can see that spark of fun and playfulness in her eyes that we're sure her husband knows and loves! Are you thinking about doing a shoot but feeling nervous about being in front of the camera? We totally understand!! Don't worry, we're not going to leave you hanging to try and pose on your own while we just click away. Just like with Miss M, we'll guide you every step of the way and help you with posing while making sure your hair, clothing and accessories look just right. :)
Crystal was our stylist for this shoot, and we think Miss M looks GORGEOUS!! We're kicking off this post with a few images from her styling session while getting her individual lashes done. (We LOVE how natural and thick they look and feel!) Enjoy!!
What more can we say...Miss L is stunning!! She wanted to surprise her hubby with a little something special, and we think he's going to LOVE what she had in mind! We wanted to start off with a "before" photo plus a few while she was getting her hair and makeup done by the fabulous Crystal of Jess Waldrop Makeup Artists! We always love this part of the process...it gives us time to chat and get to know each other better before starting the shooting part of the session. Plus it's a great way for our clients to relax, feel pampered, and mentally prepare to go in front of the camera. Oh yeah, and we usually laugh a lot, too! ;)
If you're trying to think of the perfect gift for your husband's birthday or a unique wedding anniversary gift, this is definitely a winner...for both of you!! Not only does he get gorgeous images of you to treasure for a lifetime, but you get the experience of a lifetime! (Can't beat that!) *sigh* We just love our jobs!! :)
Have a happy Friday and awesome weekend, everyone!!
Life whirls past us as dizzying speeds, this we all know. Faster and faster the carousel spins: making breakfast, ironing clothes, rushing to work, skipping lunch, paying bills, grabbing groceries, picking up the kids from school, dropping off the kids at soccer/piano/football/swimming/gymnastics, making dinner, cleaning the house, helping with homework, crashing in bed, starting all over again....where do we fit time in for ourselves? How often do we, as women, do something special just for ourselves? (No, taking a shower doesn't count!) All too often, our own needs and wants get pushed to the side because we just don't feel entitled to drop everything (our responsibilities, families, kids, chores, jobs, etc.) and spend a day dedicated entirely to ourselves. Just ONE day. How sad is that? At Room 3307, we feel that it's so important for every woman to take some time to slow down, take a step away from her everyday life and reconnect with who she is as a woman. Why wait for life to slow down? (It won't, by the way!) We have to make the decision to take a deep breath, close our eyes and step off the carousel...and then revel in the calm and beauty to be found once the world stops spinning.
For her 39th birthday (that's not a typo...yes, we know she looks 29!), Miss H's husband asked her what she'd like as a gift. Her answer? To take a day away from the spinning wheel and reconnect with herself as a woman with a boudoir photo shoot. What a great husband she has! He researched boudoir studios in the area and his searching led them to us! He even accompanied his wife to her pre-session consultation, which we thought was very sweet. :) We loved that Miss H could come to us and spend a day where the focus was completely on her...what a perfect birthday gift! No kids, no responsibilities, no pressure...just lots of attention, pampering, encouragement, affirmation and FUN. It was an amazing day that none of us wanted to end!
It's our hope that the feelings our clients feel during their experience with us linger beyond the day of the shoot and stay with them for a lifetime. That when they do reconnect with the woman inside that may have gotten lost underneath the layers of daily life, that connection remains and she walks a little taller, takes a few moments every day to silence the noise and reflect on her own beauty and worth, and maybe even sneaks a wink at herself when she passes the hallway mirror.
This is what happened when Miss H. took a deep breath, closed her eyes, and stepped off her carousel:
