When you shoot with the luxury Dallas based boudoir studio, Wonderland Boudoir, we often tell you that if you only remember one thing during your session, it's to just breath.
Breathing is something we all do instinctively. It's the first thing we do when we leave the womb and the last thing before we take that final rest until our next transition. However, we all, in a way, take the complicated art of breathing for granted.
There are different ways to breath depending on where you are and what you are doing. For example, when you work out there is a different way to breath to make sure you're getting enough oxygen to your lungs. When you meditate you have another way of breathing. When shooting your boudoir session with Wonderland Boudoir we have a special way for you to breath. Our technique is two-fold. First, it helps you to calm down. The second is that when you breathe correctly it always you to showcase that subtle sexiness that all women have.
What a lot of women don't get is that boudoir is not just about sexy faces. It's the slight change in your lips, the flirtatiousness of the eyes, and the way that you run your fingers in your hair. Boudoir is about capturing those soft and subtle elements of femininity that we all miss because we have taken it for granted.
When you come to us, the first rule I teach everyone is how to properly breathe. When you're not breathing correctly I take the time to show you the difference in your photos. Without fail, every single time, the client is floored how something as simple as breathing really changes the whole feel of a single shot.
This is just one of the rules we teach you at Wonderland Boudoir.
While out shooting boudoir in Los Angeles one of my favorite girls I had the opportunity of capturing was Ms. A. I know! I shot A LOT of ladies whose name begins with "A" while out in Los Angeles. I actually met Ms. A through the suggestion of another amazing photographer, Jerry from The Willis Collection.
Jerry told me that he had a badass friend that he thinks I should hold a boudoir session with. He believed that Ms. A and I might vibe since our frequency seemed to be on the same wavelength. Clearly, Jerry isn't a bad judge in character. He knew exactly what he was talking about when it came to Ms. A.
Ms. A and I chatted a bit before actually meeting. Even when it came to the location she had another place in mind that was just absolutely stunning. It was something that you only see in high-end Instagram accounts.
The location was masculine but still had enough gender fluidity that we could make it work. I knew as soon as I walked into the sun-drenched industrial styled location that I wanted to do a more laid back and late summer vibe. I'm sure by now you guys know that I LOVE laid-back late summer shoots. HaHa!
Shooting Ms. A felt like I was speaking to a friend that I had known for decades. She and her beautiful dog, Professor Pierre, made my day. Also, Pierre taught me that I need to go a little easier on my coconut and vitamin E body oil concoction I had created especially for LA. This funny little pup would not stop licking my leg! It was perfectly fine with me seeing as that was the most a male has licked me in years.
As you guys know that I lost the order of my blog questionnaire that I have all the ladies complete. I'm praying that these are actually Ms. A's responses or else I'm going to look like a complete ass.
LOL! Here we go!
BOUDOIR EXPERIENCE INTERVIEW WITH MS.A - LOS ANGELES BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY
How did you feel going through your second session with us?
Honestly the best experience! Korin is really such a pleasure to work with as she makes you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin!!
What did you learn from this session that really helped you?
love to learn something from everyone and with Korin it was to breathe out as we shot, to create a sense of ease in the photo and relaxed which totally changed the game for me I think!
What was your favorite part about getting ready for your session?
Planning outfits and the vibe for this shoot as Korin made her way out to LA!
What is something that you learned about yourself after your second session?
I learned that I am both fierce and sexy.
What are some suggestions that you would give other women considering a boudoir session for first or second time?
Trust the magic! Embrace your body and personality, let that shine through. Ask lots of questions and work with the photographer to figure out what works best with your angles!
Please add any final thoughts you might have.
Book her!! I've worked with a lot of male photographers, and the differences with a female photographer and their ability to see and create a vision of the female body are empowering!
I was great creating a beautiful and timeless session with Ms. A. I hope you had as much fun looking through the photos as we had to capture this session. If you are interested in having your own boudoir session please feel free to hit me up at the contact sheet below.
SONG OF THE WEEK:
This song by Anna Wise and Xavier Omar is just breathtakingly beautiful. It total reminds me of the vibe of the session Ms. A and I had together.
