Boudoir has got to be one of my favourite types of sessions to shoot. I could go off and list the reasons why, but I think what tops it off for me is how confident and beautiful clients feel once they see the photos. There’s something about getting in there, baring it all and just going with the flow.
My number one top tip for feeling the most confident at a boudoir session, is go out and buy something you love. If it’s a jersey bra and panty in baby pink, then go for it! If it’s a black lace set, then by all means! It can even be your partners favourite sweater, as long as your comfortable it will transfer into those pictures.
Another recordation is to pamper yourself. It’s not everyday a women buys lingerie and gets in front of a camera. If you booked a boudoir session, theres a reason! These pictures are treasured for a long time after, why not take some time and get your hair and make up done? The night before, have a long relaxing bath and enjoy some well deserved me time.
If you’re coming to one of my sessions, there is bound to be a glass of champagne ready for you, and a little champagne goes a long way when you’re in front of the camera. I always get giddy and excited whenever someone is interested in a boudoir shoot. It’s so much fun and worth all the nerves.
How stunning is this couple? Last summer we planned a styled shoot, shot it… then I went off to California and LOST THE USB THAT THE PICTURES WERE ON. I was devastated. Thank God it wasn’t their actual wedding. Anyway, I obviously found them, and I couldn’t be happier.
Mackenzie and I have dreamed and dreamed of running our own businesses. This time last year the dreams were just that, dreams. But since then we’ve both shot weddings, boudoir, families and newborn shoots! Dreams come true people, if your willing to put in the effort 😉
HOW ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL IS THIS VERA WANG GOWN?! Mackenzie makes it look a dream.
Makenzie‘s been working on launching her new website, and I can’t wait till it goes live! So exciting! Im so happy to be sharing these beautiful pictures. So happy I found them.
Lesson learned- Don’t shove USBs just anywhere you please! They’re special. Take care of them. Haha.
Winter weddings. Something about the white snow makes its all so romantic. This was a dream to photograph. Denie and Blake are two of the coolest, funniest, most laid back people I know. The day was full of lots of laughing, and nothing is better than laughing is it? I loved so many things about this day, but I think the thing that topped it off, was that Paolo, my wonderful boyfriend had his own camera and was second shooting the whole time! We make the best team. hehe. Im biased. I know. Now… on to the pictures!
The ceremony was special. Blake and Denie had a wedding in Australia prior to this one. So this was there second one!
After the ceremony we heading to Assiniboine Park to take pictures. We were pumped cause the snow was perfect! Beautiful flakes made the pictures so romantic! And the best part was that it wasn’t -40 degrees celsius, like it is right now.
Denie’s mom made the bouquet. Hubby hubba.
Aren’t these the cutest little flower girls you’ve ever seen?
They had the reception in the church basement, that was transformed into an amazing rustic wintery scene. All carefully planned and executed by Denie’s mama!
This cake.. What a dream. My sister made this people. My sister is a star. I bet you’re jealous that your sister isn’t a professional baker. 😉
Blake and Denie, thank you for trusting me and allowing me and paolo to take pictures on your special day! It was so much fun, we enjoyed it a lot! Here’s a snapshot of the love these two have for each other, a perfect way to end.
Jermaine and Bernadene are the sweetest of the sweetest. I have the pleasure of shooting their wedding this summer and it was just the best day. The entire ceremony had me crying behind my camera. Here’s the sneakest of sneak peeks on of their day.
It’s easy to take pictures when love is so evident. There’s nothing better. Jermaine and Bernadene, Thank you for allowing me to capture such a special time in your lives. The love you guys have for Jesus is evident and your marriage will strive because of it <3
