Baby Milk Bath Photos… and Boudoir Photography?

Boudoir Photography doesn’t necessarily mean “naked woman in a bedroom,” of course, that’s been the trend which has defined how boudoir photography is nowadays. A boudoir really is just a French word meaning “a woman’s bedroom” and I’ve photographed hundreds of sensual photo shoots inside some form of boudoir, but I always look forward to doing boudoir photography the non-traditional way and outside the bedroom, ie. baby milk bath photos with mommy in the bathtub. No flower petals? Sometimes I am too simple to a fault… but, I don’t apologize for it, I embrace it. A milk bath photo shoot with mama and baby, that’s all.

Newborn Photo Shoots at Home in Portland Area

When my clients go through the various milestones in their life, I get to grow with them and get invited back to document the next special chapter in their book. They start as single ladies to newlywed brides to new mommies, and I am there with them every step of the way. This feeds my soul and to think it all started with a simple camera.

Tasteful Bridal Boudoir Photos

A bridal boudoir photo session doesn’t have to involve too much props or anything; you can keep it very minimal and just focus on the bride-to-be. To me, it’s always about the client… if there’s too much props then it just takes away from her then she becomes secondary when our eyes should go straight to her. //Model: Carly Jean

At-Home Family Photo Shoots Portland, Oregon

I truly do love at-home family photo shoots; there’s so much more meaning when photographing in someone’s home. I am not known for backgrounds in my photos at all; if anything, I am known for how I seem to connect families in photographs rather than make them look posed or disinterested (in being photographed and/or each other). It’s not always easy to do, though! But, I try. The best way for me to get families to connect in photo is by reenacting how they are naturally without the camera around. And having yummy candies readily available works for when I need to bribe kids— and dads! haha!!

When I was in Siargao, Philippines, which is the home of Cloud 9, a surfer’s paradise and one of the Top 10 Surfing Destinations in the World, I did a little spontaneous “engagement photo session” for a sweet couple that I just met on the island… Actually, it was a tiny island in the middle of the ocean and it was just the two of us couples. So, they couldn’t really say no to me! haha!! I hadn’t planned on shooting portraits that day so I only brought my Canon 40mm Pancake lens which is wider than I typically shoot. The couple allowed me to pose them as if they were doing lifestyle engagement pictures even though they were not engaged at the time.

It was supposed to be only a 10-minute session, but we ended up hopping around to the same islands so we settled for lunch together in the straw hut they rented and I just kept my camera pointing at them the entire time. I’m sure they were texting their friends of the weird Asian-American girl who is stalking them. But, I think because my husband is also Filipino it made them trust me a little more. ;) Lifestyle images are what I love that showcase the couple’s time together; we got enough smile-at-the-camera photos so that’s when I like to focus on the editorial style stuff. It’s like looking at a page from their travel journey in pictures… We get to be a part of their adventure like a fly on the wall. It was as if I was their personal vacation photographer, and I like the sound of that!
