I have always thought of boudoir photos as something that involved girls looking cheesy and trying to be too sexy, and not like themselves in photos. Recently, my opinion of them totally changed when a local fabulous photographer in Orange County, Chloe Atnip, asked me if I would be interested in shooting a few boudoir images with her. I immediately said yes and thought it would be a great experience to do a fun and flirty boudoir shoot and share how to do one like this that involves great photos, without the cheesiness of overly sexy images. We shot these right after I chopped my hair into a lob in July, so my hair is a tad shorter than normal. When thinking of the different looks for boudoir, I love the idea of bralettes, slips, men’s shirts, and silky robes as a way to be feminine in photos without being overly revealing. These accessories to me are the perfect way to get great looks that would make the ideal wedding day gift for a spouse, or even a surprise holiday gift for someone special.
This weekend I am excited to relax and have absolutely nothing planned other than a girls dinner out on Saturday night. I have been craving a good movie and popcorn session as well, so that may have to be worked into my weekend plans of relaxation in addition to my routine of watching my favorite shows. If the weather actually cools off a bit, I may try and squeeze in a hike on my favorite trail in Newport Coast as well. I hope you all have a great weekend. xo
