Tampa Boudoir Photography | One Of Our Favorite Poses

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!!

Tampa Boudoir Photos | Miss M

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!!

South Tampa Boudoir | Miss L

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!!

Boudoir Birthday Gift | Miss H.

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:

Brand Spankin' New Site!

We are so THRILLED to finally share our shiny new website! This year, Room 3307 has seen a lot of growth and changes.  In November 2012, we moved into our very first studio space!  It's hard to believe that in few short months we will be celebrating a year at our Westshore studio (pictures coming soon!).  Then again, it's also hard to believe that three weeks ago we celebrated 4 years in the boudoir photography business!  I guess time really does fly when you're having fun!

Check back often as we have so much to share in the coming weeks!!
