Bridal Boudoir is very popular in our studio and in California we have brides getting married all year long. Many brides do bring in the traditional veil, garter and shoes from their wedding, but I also thing that you can think outside the box when it comes to your bridal boudoir session. For instance, check out this floral bride robe that L brought to her session or even his favorite team jersey. You can make your session very personal to you and the best party when you don’t go completely “bridal” is that the photos tend to stay more timeless! We love all the unique surprises that women bring to the studio. Whatt will you bring to your bridal boudoir session?

Woman come to the studio to shoot boudoir for so many different reasons. The most popular, of course, is it’s meant as a gift for someone else, but I truly believe that it is a gift for yourself! Woman ask me all the time what they would do with the pictures. It’s not really about what you would do with the pictures, but what the images represent to you. It’s a powerful expression of your beauty, confidence and acceptance.

I’ve met her during a different time in her life and now she is on a new journey. She is recently single and after much heartache, she is finding a new path of strength.

I felt this session was symbolic in so many ways. She mentioned to me before her shoot that she wanted to do a theme with feathers and birds. To her it represented her the spreading of her wings and her freedom to fly. As I was editing her photos I thought about the idea of Angels. By definition they are a symbol of goodness and hope. The fact that these wings are black to me represent a sort of fallen Angel.

I love this shoot because it really spoke to me about who she is. She is integrity, power and beauty. She is strong and optimistic and this how I hope all the women who come into my studio feel this type of acceptance.

In her post about this shoot she said, “This photo means more to me than I can explain. I love birds because to me they symbolize freedom, beauty and dedication. When I brought this vision to Tammy she went beyond what I could have imagined to bring that symbolization to life. I’ve been a helpless bird that couldn’t find the strength to open my wings, but I’m ready to fly ❤.  Thank you Tammy for making me feel beautiful!”

Today I watch a video about a girl who tells her classmates that they are beautiful and their reaction to it was priceless! To many times we walk around feeling less than beautiful. In the studio I hear women say things about themselves in a negative way. Like “I hate my big butt”, “my chest is flat” or “my skin is too pale.” These are NOT bad things! These are beautiful things! You have a nice voluminous butt. Your ass looks awesome in a dress! You have the perfect chest for your frame. And it looks awesome in high fashion clothes! You have magical porcelain skin! Tanning is overrated! You are beautiful! When a woman comes into my studio and expresses me that she is “curvy” I say, good because curvy is beautiful and I get to document that beauty, but most importantly I get to tell her and hopefully make her see that she is more than what she feels. She is a natural woman, and that is NOT a bad thing.

When clients are stumped on what to bring into the studio I always suggest two outfits. The first is what I call a comfy sexy. It’s an outfit that is more covered up, but a sexier version of what you would wear lounging around the house. The second is what I refer to as the classic outfit. Simple black, lacy, garter, stockings and heels. This idea of sexy never goes out of style. I think these sides of yourself makes up a good variety for your boudoir shoot because you get a bit of sweet and spicy.

Of course, you should always tailor your outfits to be a bit more personal to your story. For instance, when your husband is a football fan you bring in sexy football gear. T-shirt and a hat, cute. Leopard heels and some boyshorts, hot! I’m sure any sports fanatic husband would be pleased too. And, of course, she knocked it out of the park with her classic outfit too. Sizzle! Here are a few of my favorites from this sweet and spicy boudoir session.

I love shooting couples boudoir in studio and I’m lucky enough to say that at least one couple that is brave enough to come in let me capture their passion. I’m so happy that this couple allowed me to share a few of their photos and the small amount the did let me share really show off two different sides of them. There is a very sexy side to these images, but also one with a bit of laughter. All relationships need a bit of both! Sugar, spice and most of all fun! Couples boudoir is perfect for an anniversary gift and just a great reminder to keep it interested in the bedroom.
