Location, location, location. That’s not just true with houses but also for boudoir sessions! My idea of a good location first and foremost revolves around great light – as I value tons of natural light. After great light comes neutral settings and furnishings that set a fresh, tasteful and high-end feel. My home studio is furnished in modern, clean-lined furniture, light and creamy tones and textures and lots of light – which make it a great location for boudoir because it allows the client’s beauty to sing right on through. Did you know that I’m now booking weekday afternoon Curves Boudoir sessions in my Virginia Beach home studio? Here are some recent shots from the home studio, and I’m excited to be featuring a home studio client session here in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
I’ve been exploring other locations in hopes of finding a flipside look to the clean lines I’m used to – as I love finding new locations and pushing myself to take on new elments within my own style. The challenge was finding great light in combination with rich-looking traditional furnishings without it getting too stuffy. I recently shot at a new location in Richmond, Virginia, and fell in love. It’s historical, with gorgeous high ceilings, which I know I keep talking about, but honestly, you don’t see them at many places anymore. The fireplaces are grand with rich-looking large gold mirrors. The windows, oh, they are floor to ceiling as well, and then there’s the little sitting area window nook. Did I mention the original, refurbished hardwood floors? Yes, there’s that. So this location won my heart on all counts – fantastic light, beautiful bones and to top it off, a mix of antique and mid-century furniture.
I loved it so much that I’m going back in April. I rebooked it exactly two days after coming home and processing people in that room – those photos had something I knew I wanted to capture again! I have one session spot open on Friday, April 13 in the afternoon for that Richmond location, so if you’re interested, grab it! (Email me at email@example.com) Oh, and once again, I’m working with GoGo Gorgeous – Amanda and Kristen – for hair/makeup for the Richmond sessions. I swear to you, they do magical things!
I’ve got boudoir sessions coming up in Virginia Beach on March 11 at another gorgeous, historic bed and breakfast – more great light, more classic furnishings and another opportunity to bring tasteful and sexy right back into the same sentence with a Curves Boudoir session! Two spots left for those sessions. (As always, package details are available at www.curvesboudoir.com/pricing and you can use the contact form on that site to let me know you’d like to book a session!) And I’m super excited to have Theresa Little on board for hair and makeup for the Virginia Beach sessions. She is a joy to work with and makes my clients look absolutely amazing!
So here we go, I want to thank this client for allowing me to feature some of the photos from her session. My clients know that there’s never any pressure to share their photos on my websites, but when they do it’s awesome and gives those just like them who are nervous and not quite sure what to expect a lot more to go on and a greater sense of my style. So thank you to all my clients who give me the opportunity to share photos from their sessions and tell the Curves Boudoir story through their beautiful images.
