Best of 2016: Boudoir Photography

London Ontario Boudoir

Boudoir has come a long way from glamour studio photography and it is a wonderful idea to do a different type of portrait session, which is creative and pushes you beyond your comfort zone. It can make a wonderful, tasteful present for your husband or loved one, especially thinking about the upcoming holiday of love, Valentine’s Day. This year I captured 3 special London Ontario Boudoir sessions. Two of the lovely ladies were referred by clients of mine so they had a friend to rely on that I am professional, easy going and fun during the sessions. Sometimes it is also important to clients to have a female photographer capturing them. The other session was a lovely soon to be bride (I captured her wedding) who was using the photos and a gift for her soon to be groom. I practise what I preach and as I got married this year I also did a boudoir session and I’m hoping that as I have now been in front of the camera as well as behind on this kind of session that it will help me in photographing my future sessions. In editing I always give my clients a colour version of the photo and then also a black and white or vintage tone, many of which you can see in the gallery below.

This year I introduced Pin Up photography into my business and it is a vintage inspired, more cheeky and less serious version of boudoir.

Beauty by Mallory did both hair and makeup for all 3 sessions seen here, just with the exception of the one photo with the purple dress which I captured of a model at a conference. It is so important to have good hair and makeup for your boudoir session, not only does is look better in the images but also will make you feel more confident in the moment.

Does this have you thinking you would like to do a Boudoir session? I offer a great value package and as I mentioned before it is a great idea for your loved one this Valentine’s Day- gift certificates are available.

To kick off the new year I thought I would put together a series of blogs showing some of my favourite photos I captured in 2016. You can catch up on the previous posts below-

Best of 2015: Boudoir photography London Ontario

Wrap up of Erin Woodgate Photography’s best Boudoir Photography London Ontario and Boudoir mini session announcement!

To kick off the new year I thought I would put together a series of blogs showing some of my favourite photos I captured in 2015. To start I could think of no better way than with some Boudoir photography london ontario sessions. 2015 was a very different year for me for boudoir sessions, with everyone opting for either on location (check out the freezing outdoor winter shoots and the fun 4 wheeler shoot) or in the studio, in the past I had done a lot of my boudoir sessions either using the clients bedroom or a hotel room so the shoots from 2015 were different and fun!

Have you been thinking about doing a Boudoir session? It is a wonderful idea to just do something different and push beyond your comfort zone, or can make a wonderful present for a loved one, especially thinking about the upcoming holiday of love, Valentine’s Day.

Hair and Makeup

I cannot stress the importance of having a high quality hair and makeup artist for your boudoir session. A professional like Mallory will be able to bring out your features and will know how to apply the makeup so that it will look good on camera.  Fake tanner is a personal choice but I recommend not to use it unless you have had a trial run and know how your skin reacts to it, nothing worse than having to have the whole shoot in black and white because you don’t like the colour of your skin! Don’t forget about your nails. What better way to start to feel relaxed and confident than a trip to your favourite nail salon!

Clothing

I recommend to have a few options when it comes to clothing so that if a certain option isn’t really working that there is more as a backup. Generally I would start with something with a little more coverage such as a robe, piece of clothing of your partners or a bodysuit then as you begin to feel more comfortable and confident we can more to other lingerie options. For colours I would recommend to bring at least one black outfit and one outfit that is really ‘your style’ as far as colour. A pair or two of high heels and fun accessories like chunky/statement necklaces can really add variety to your session.
