Sweet sweet Chloe is finally one year old. With every baby that I photograph for their first year, I am always so amazed with how quickly time flies and how much they have grown since their newborn session. I doubt this is the last you will be seeing of her....especially with a little sister due here in a month or so.
My make-up artist just shared this article with me because she knows how much I love hosting a Boudoir or Glamour Party!
I don't really like the complaining tone of the article like it is something that bridal parties are being forced to do. Had they actually done one at my studio, they would have had a blast. It's not about getting half naked for the camera but more of a way to kick off the start of a Bacherlorette Party night with a makeover, some beautiful portraits with your best friends, and a start for a night of fun.
I have an issue with a couple of the responses in the article:
“Would any man ever feel the need to pose for pictures like these and call it a party?” asked one woman in response to the story on Twitter.
What kind of response is that? We all know what alot of guys do at the Bachelor Parties and more women would not feel the need to doing their same activities.
"What an unpleasant and pointless thing to do," wrote a commenter on the Daily Mail, where some examples of bachelorette boudoir photos were posted. "Imagine how someone who was less body confident or ideally shaped would feel if they were forced to take their clothes off or be excluded by the body confident attention seeking ones."
A. While Boudoir or Glamour photography is not for everyone, it is far from unpleasant or pointless. I have yet to conduct a session where the subject didn't leave feeling amazing and raving about how much fun it was.
B. No one in my studio is ever forced to wear (or not wear) anything they are uncomfortable in.
C. A session in my studio will boost confidence.
At least one bride, who turned her bachelorette party into a photo shoot, walked away from the whole experience more empowered. “We all felt incredibly happy and beautiful," she told the Post. “It was great because the whole point was to feel good about ourselves."
This person gets it and has clearly experienced a shoot firsthand....listen to her!
If you would like more information or to experience a group or individual Boudoir or Glamour session, do not hesitate to contact me. I fully guarantee that you will have a blast and feel amazing or your money back!
I was a little excited when this family won my recent Lifestyle Session giveaway off of my Facebook page. Dad works with my husband and I had seen their adorable little ones at a few events.
I have alwalove photographing children doing their own thing, in their environment. I appreciate it even more now that I have little ones seeing how some of my favorite images of them are just random ones while we are just playing at the house .
I was just catching up on one of my favorite Wedding Websites - The Offbeat Bride and they posted a blog today that was a subject I have been meaning to blog about.... How to make a "less worry/more party" wedding day timeline
If you are struggling on how to set up your wedding day, it will probably help give you some guidance. Setting up a timeline is a good idea even if it is just basic to give everyone an idea of how your wedding day will go.
My goal as a wedding photographer is to make sure that you get to enjoy the entire day that you spent so much time and money into planning. It is never fun for a Bride & Groom to get married and go spend most of your reception time out taking photos while your guest have fun without you.
