Later Summer Texas Vibes | Dallas Boudoir Photography

Dallas Boudoir Photography, Wonderland Boudoir

As you guys know Kryssi Korelone’s photos are some of my faves that I shot in 2016.  Her whole session was magical and I still get compliments about them til this day.  

Late last summer of 2016 we shot again.  I have to say that I loved this session because it was laid back and proved that boudoir shouldn’t be restricted to traditional panties and bra. When you style for your setting your photos become so much better.

When you have a fun and laid back attitude sometimes it makes shooting really fun.  Especially if you already have an established relationship.  This go around Kryssi allowed me to style some of the sets.  I wanted to keep the theme of late southwestern summer.  Since we were shooting around about a lot of browns and blacks with pops of color here and there I wanted the pieces to speak for themselves.  I wanted them to be statement pieces that clearly did not have to compete for competition.

 

 

LOOK ONE: White Lace Dress

It’s no secret at this point, you guys know I love lace… so why not make it an entire dress?  Kryssi has a body that even Xena the Warrior princess would envy so I wanted a way to show off her beautiful and sexy frame while still being able to shoot in public.  Therefore we landed on this number.  

What makes this piece really stand out is the fact that it’s a crop top dress.  There is something is sexy about a good crop top and I, for one, am happy that crop tops came back in style.  This is a sexy and sophisticated dress.

LOOK TWO: Oversized Black Sweater

I LOVE a good oversized sweater.  There is an unspoken sexy when it comes to a good oversized sweater.  Sweaters are designed to be cozy and comforting  If the sweatshirt belongs to your man it can look super sexy.  To be quite honest, I would pick a nice oversized sweater over a thong any day.  Sweaters brings in this whole girl-next-door vibe that is super attractive.

We decided to go for a black and on black theme.  This jersey knit sweater was actually from Forever 21.  What was cool about this piece, that can’t be seen in photos, is the fact that there is a knot in the back.  This is a cool element to an otherwise basic sweatshirt.  With this piece, Kryssi is wearing beautiful sexy bottoms from Victoria’s secret.

Boudoir isn’t about what you wear, it’s how you wear it.  Looking and feeling sexy isn’t doesn’t stop at what you are wearing it. That's where it begins.  It stops at how you feel.  It was clear that in these photos Kryssi felt sexy and this helped create a laid back and cool look.

How to Style a Badass Boudoir Session | Dallas Boudoir

How to Style as Badass Boudoir Session, Wonderland Boudoir, Dallas

I feel like every time I shoot a session it's my favorite and having  Ms. M in front of the lens was no exception. 

Ms. M's session kicked ass for a number of reasons. Her hair and makeup were perfect for the location. She listened with the intent to follow, and she trusted my directions to get the perfect poses and looks for each frame. However, the most important thing was that her looks weren't your typical boudoir lingerie pulls. This was a beautifully styled session .

Today we are going to break down each look and why it worked, where the pieces were purchased, and how it was styled.

BOUDOIR SHOULDN'T BREAK THE BANK

Now don't me wrong, I LOVE to shop for lingerie.  It's so much fun! However, after window shopping on Agent Provocateur's website pieces add up pretty quickly and the average woman probably isn't trying to spend $1600 on lingerie.  

All the items you will see today were purchased from Target,  Forever 21, or came from the client's own collection. I think the most expensive piece was about $20.

Remember,  it's never the price of clothing, it's how you style it.

LOOK 1: Bodysuits for Boudoir

White Bodysuit: $3 Forever 21, 
Cut-off shorts, Heels: Clients previously purchased pieces

Let me be perfectly honest.  I love bodysuits.  They are so fucking sexy.  They are sensual because there's an understated allure about them.  I believe it's because they hide so much but let the right body parts show off.  Bodysuits hug the body and this allows you to appreciate the feminine form.

This bodysuit was purchased brand new from Forever 21 for ONLY $3!  Yes, a Forever 21 was actually closing down for a remodel and they were having a fire sale.  This bodysuit found a new home.  It's very important to make sure you look out for sales to help save you money.  Even without the sale, this body retails for no more than $11.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LOOK 2:  Lace Bralette & High Waisted Black Panties

Lace Bra Top: $16, Forever 21
High Waisted Bottoms: $20, Target

Right after bodysuits my favorite element on lingerie is lace.  Lace is just a classic element that brings a sense of tradition to photos... even in this beautiful blue.  The bra top makes it bit more modern with the straight lines that highlight the breast.  

The bottoms are actually my favorite piece.  I feel like high waisted bottoms don't get enough love.  When not on the body they have a tendency to look like granny panties, but once you put them on they flatten the tummy area to make you look long and lean.  This is perfect for most body types.  It's especially useful when you have a little muffin top going.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look 3: Lace  Faux Silk Top & High Waisted Floral Bikini Bottoms

Top: $15, Forever 21
Swimsuit Bottoms: $15, Forever 21

I love a good loose top.  Yes, I know boudoir is all about the tight and sexy, but sometimes we just gotta let the girls live!  this is probably my favorite top of all times.  Well, not really but lets got with it for this post.  The top is fun, loose, and allows Ms. M to move around freely.  When you feel free in person you look free in your photos.  

Since we were shooting outside floral was a perfect choice.  The color couldn't have been better since we were shooting in late evening during the summer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LOOK 4: Nude Bikini Top and Nude Mesh Bikini Bottoms

High Waisted Bikini Bottoms: $15, Forever 21

Another secret I have for beautifully styled boudoir sessions is using swimsuits or bikinis instead of traditional lingerie.  

I KNOW! Who would have thought?!

I find that swimsuits are equally as sexy and lingerie and no one will know the difference anyway.  Furthermore, swimsuits tend to be a bit more fun, edgy, and sexy since they are designed for people to actually see in addition to being functional.  Another advantage of using swimwear instead of traditional lingerie for boudoir session is that the pieces come in more colors.  Having more colors provide more versatility when it comes to styling for a location.
