Boudoir Photography Tips for Clients

I love, LOVE this lingerie and shirt combo; the styling is a very confident, yet feminine take on the men’s work shirt that most women want to wear for their boudoir photos … I truly prefer this style! Why? Because she’s dressed for her body type. Men are built square; women have curves in all sizes and should embrace every one of them. That’s not to say that you should never wear something of your guy’s clothing; you can, but just remember that he’s more interested to see you than his jersey. [hint, hint] So, if you want to wear your man’s button-down shirt then my wardrobe stylist and I will help you with the best way to flatter your body and make him even more excited. ;) Whether you’re looking forward to your first boudoir session or the next, follow my blog for more Boudoir Photo Session Tips so you can get the most out of your shoot. //Model: Jarin; Hair & Makeup by Jein King.

Portland Boudoir Photography (REDEFINED)

It is my goal to redefine Boudoir Photography: Women are naturally soft which is why I love the softness of film and why I prefer not to sharpen my final boudoir pictures … We women are perfect just the way we are, like Jessica. In addition to shooting boudoir on film, my boudoir photography style is more organic, moving with the way a woman’s body moves and not force her in to awkward poses. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with other photography styles this is just how I wish to handle my style.

Boudoir Photography Tips for Clients

Boudoir photography doesn’t necessarily mean expensive or risqué lingerie; it can be anything that makes you feel good about yourself. This beautiful woman with blue/sea-green hair is wearing minimal makeup, a simple top, and black polka dot high-waist bottom. But, the most important thing that she’s wearing is… Confidence. //Follow my blog for more Boudoir Photo Session Tips.

Romantic Bridal Boudoir Pictures as Featured on Style Me Pretty

If you’re planning a wedding, then you may recall your photographer asking if you were interested in having Getting Ready photos. For these photos, your photographer remains in the room with you, documenting you and your bridal party getting ready for the big moment. These images here were taken at a wedding styled shoot that was featured on Style Me Pretty. I wanted to focus on getting ready images a little differently than what is usually done. As a former bride myself, I felt prettiest on my wedding day; I was getting ready for my husband-to-be and I couldn’t wait for him to see me in my wedding dress. Now, looking back on that special day 12 years ago, I wish I had taken a moment to document myself getting ready in this way: Bridal Boudoir Photography … The final images would not only be for my groom as a surprise wedding gift, but for me to cherish one of the prettiest days of my life.

Wedding Anniversary Photos as Featured on Beloved Darling

(This series is from a wedding anniversary session that was shot on the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon and featured on Beloved Darling.)
As a professional portrait photographer, I am often asked to shoot engagement and wedding anniversary photos. Amanda & Nick will be married for 13 years this August. Because they didn’t have professional photography on their wedding day, we tried to make up for it by incorporating Nick’s fun boat and Amanda’s mother’s dress from when she was in high school. “It has been a hard road but choosing to hear each other’s heart instead of defending our own wants led us to fall in love in new ways.” //Hair & Makeup by Cosmetologist Allie Childers.
