When we were first contacted by Mrs B last summer about shooting her very first ever boudoir session before her wedding so she could gift her special images to her husband on their wedding night, we were very excited to oblige. We met in person a couple of times to discuss schedules, preparation and shoot ideas.
As is usually the case with new clients, when Mrs B arrived at our studio, she was nervous. Excited, but nervous none the less. After spending an hour or so with our hair and MU team, and chatting a little more about her upcoming wedding it was shoot time and the nerves had subsided somewhat. Most of our clients find they start to feel at ease very quickly and usually within 10 of 15 minutes are laughing and having a blast. Our shoot lasted about 2 hours and by the time we were done, she was a natural in front of the camera and as we wrapped up, Mrs B was already talking about shooting again and told us what a blast it had been shooting with us.
We delivered a selection of keepsake prints in time for the wedding and I’m told Mrs B’s new husband was thrilled with the surprise gift. We were also able to finalize the album layout and have the finished linen lay flat album ready and delivered in time for the return from the honeymoon. Mrs B was thrilled with the album and is now thinking of when to schedule her follow-up session. During the presentation, she was thrilled enough with her images that she decided to sign a release and let us share a few examples from her session. We hope you enjoy these samples of a real world client and hope you contact us with any questions you have if you are considering your own intimate portrait session.
If you’ve never treated yourself to a boudoir session, you really need to. Even if no one ever sees the photos except you. Yes, boudoir is sexy and intimate and very personal, but it is also one of the most confidence building and empowering things you will ever do for yourself. Ever.
