When of my favorite things about boudoir are the shocking revelations that come from my clients. Case in point with Ms. A. She told me she was actually four months pregnant!
Say what?! I did not know that when booking a session with her. In fact, I think she was just now finding out. LOL. So keep this fact in mind when you see the photos of our four months pregnant client doing a boudoir session.
You would never know this because posing we leveraged posing to her advantage to keep the appearance of the belly down. I LOVE posing women to get the desired angles needed. Learning to pose women is important for two reasons. It leans your subject out and allows you to shoot more evocatively. I mean let's be honest, what sells a photo is the story that it wants to tell. Storytelling is successful when the viewer can sense and feel the emotion from the still pictures. Photos can be done to make us feel any array of emotions. I look to make my photos powerful.
I feel as though there is a lot of power in allowing ourselves to be evocative and emotional and that's what I was doing with Ms. A in her session.
This is another session that was styled by me and makeup was done by Jazzy Baptiste.
