Do you ever catch a glimpse of yourself when the lighting is hitting you just right and think “oh heeeey girl;)? (cue Ryan Gosling memes)
Our boudoir sessions are filled with double-take worthy moments just like that.
These moments are achieved through a combination of angles, posing, time of day, and my 7 years of experience photographing women in a variety of different natural lighting environments.
I’ve been told that my team and I make it look pretty easy, but there is a lot of planning and technique that goes into creating the perfect environment for your raw and natural beauty to shine through.
They don’t call me the lighting expert for nothing;)
At the end of the day, showcasing your true and authentic self is what your boudoir session is all about.
Don’t get me wrong, the pampering is nothing short of amazing too.
We want you to feel equal parts exposed and in control – Lighting helps us create this balance.
Throughout shoot time, this balancing act can feel sort of like a dance as we make slight shifts and move through different poses to maintain the mood we want to display.
Having a strong mood in your images is everything because it communicates aspects of your story that words simply can’t.
If you are anything like me, you may not always have the words to describe the things that your soul is feeling – I find that beautiful.
There is something so sultry about allowing your body to speak for you.
Your boudoir shoot is a safe space to let go and allow that to happen.
Whether your session is taking place at one of our indoor studios in Los Angeles or Miami or perhaps outdoors in Tulum or the Bonneville Salt Flat in Utah – on session day, you will step into an environment that is made for you to thrive in.
All of our locations are carefully vetted to ensure their natural lighting access is beyond your wildest dreams.
One of the many benefits to using natural lighting is that as the sun goes down, we have different moods to play with.
When we begin shooting and the sun is at its height, we will capture those more playful and airy images that express your most elegant and graceful self.
A short time later, when the sun begins to set, we will be greeted by some warm golden rays and emotive shadows that will showcase your more intense and romantic side.
I love shooting this way because it helps us create variance in your images that illuminates the many layers of who you are and illustrates the depth of your story.
In our studio, no detail is overlooked.
You deserve photos that will empower you for the rest of your life – and that comes from stepping out of your comfort zone and literally stepping into the light so we can guide you through this incredible experience.
