I love being a boudoir photographer in Dallas, Texas. I meet so many incredible women. Some whom I have shot three of four times already. It's great to earn the trust and love of your clients.
Speaking of I am shooting one of my favorite faces, here we have Ms. M again! This has to be about my third or fourth time shooting Ms. M and trust me it never gets boring.
Ms. M gave me the liberty to style her boudoir session. Down to clothing, hair, and makeup. I love these types of challenges because it shows me the client REALLY believes in my ability, and it also gives me the chance to be more experimental. This is why I love my clients, they really allow me to stretch my imaginations.
If you can believe it or not, we actually shot this whole series in my apartment. The first look took place on my balcony. We had Candy from StylesByCandy come in and handle hair. Jazzy was covering makeup. I actually styled both looks.
For hair I wanted to go for something full body and free. I love messier hairstyles in boudoir sessions. It makes it much easier when shooting because I am not constantly concerned about the hair being perfect. Messy hair gives me the liberty to push the session to the limit.
Jazzy went with a very classic makeup look but still gave it his signature style be giving her the perfect heart lips. The lips match perfectly with the aesthetic and style.
The clothing pieces actually came from a closing American Apparel store. If you guys didn't know, American Apparel is, at the time of this post, in the process of closing all of its locations. This entire outfit cost me less than $5. Yes, I bought all the pieces for 90% off. I am willing to bet that anything with the American Apparel tag will be considered vintage and worth a lot of money in the future. So hanging on to your American Apparel pieces may come in handy in the future... just not the near future.
In this second look, we stuck to American Apparel high waisted bottom but then opted for this beautiful top purchased from Forever 21. Again, this purchase was from another clothing store. I picked the top for $3... again, another boudoir outfit that cost less than $5.
This goes to show that it's not about the price of the pieces but how you rock them.
