Boudoir Photo Shoot with Rachel

Many women wonder, what is a Boudoir Photo Shoot? A Boudoir photo shoot derives from the french from 1800's, A boudoir is a lady's private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term derives from the French verb bouder, meaning "to pout" which I think is pretty cute, this type of shoot is now commonly popular for wives to give to their husbands or future husbands. You do not have to be naked..few actually do. It is meant to be tasteful, seductive yet artistic on a very personal level.
Some woman get all their girlfriends together, hire photographer, makeup artist and rent a hotel room and have a fun experience together. Other woman, just do it privately in their own home or a studio. My new contact, Sara from Sara's Photography has a studio in her home, it's very private and she has great furniture and prop's to use for the shoot. Also, I provide pieces from my hair accessories line Sara Faella, that you could purchase that day if you feel you just cannot part with them at the end of your shoot:)
You provide your own lingerie..think of yourself as getting ready as a Victoria's secret model in a fashion show;)
You can also bring your husbands favorite sports jersey to wear too.

I had the honor of working with a very sweet, beautiful and inspiring young woman, Rachel. Here's how her shoot went....
