Tushy Tuesday | Los Gatos Boudoir Photography



Happy Tushy Tuesday!

Unfortunately I was VERY sick last week so blogging got bumped, but I’m now back in the game!

Here’s a lovely tush to get back on track.

Fashion Friday Behind the Scenes | San Jose Boudoir Photographer



Boudoir Coterie Portrait photographyFriday already? Where did this week go?

I was browsing the Anthropolgie website while trying to come up with ideas for this week’s post, when I found this gorgeous pajama set (pictured in the graphic below). I quickly saved it to Pinterest (my birthday is coming after all) and moved along.

Still stuck on ideas, I decided to check out lingerie on Pinterest, and came across a cute lace racerback bra that I see getting re-pinned quite often. That’s when it hit me — what did the cute PJ set and this lacy bra have in common — they are both pretty from all angles!

Let’s face it, most of the time we focus on what we can easily see in the mirror, and forget about the other side.  I know Danea features some fabulous tushies every Tuesday around here, but what about the rest of the back side? It’s not just all about the booty!

I love the simplicity of a gorgeous back shot. While a woman’s back is totally sexy on it’s own, sometimes it’s nice to add some pretty lingerie to accentuate it even more.

Here’s some lingerie that’s eye catching from all angles:

Clockwise:

1. Bryony Sleep Set – Anthropologie 

2. Eberjey Colette Racerback Bralete – Journelle

3. Strappy Slip – Victoria’s Secret

4. Strappy Back Bra – Free People

I’m really loving this sleep set from Anthropologie because it’s totally sexy, but looks really comfortable for every-day wear. That gives it an A+ in my book. You could also swap out the bottom for a black lacy boy short for a different kind of look.

On that note, I think any of these pieces would be fabulous for a boudoir session. Ready to show off all of your sides? Gives us a call or shoot us an email today!

Chuckie Arlund Worshop | San Jose Bay Area Boudoir Photographer



It’s been over a year that I’ve been sitting on these images. Last March I was able to attend WPPI,  a large photographers convention in Las Vegas and attend a couple workshops. One small workshop on lighting was hosted by Chuckie Arlund. It was a group of 8 or so photographers in a small hotel room, one nervous but lovely model and the teaching about Radio Poppers and playing with lights. Each photographer had a few minutes to play with the poppers which was pretty cool. Here’s a behind the scene shot of Chuckie with the light meter, my friend and fellow Boudoir photographer Petra(holding the light), and the lovely Dana.

I couldn’t tell you which the following images were done with the radio poppers and which were natural light etc… it was too long ago, but there sure is a difference in the light and colors among these images. It was fun to get to play with these and I was pretty sure I was going to order them, but I didn’t get around to it after my trip and now I would need a refresher course to remember how to use them. Haha. Regardless I enjoyed the workshop and I couldn’t just let these lovely images sit in a folder. I may have only had a few moments with her but Dana did a wonderful job and I wanted to share the few images I took. Thanks again, Chuckie and Dana!

Fashion Friday Bridal Boudoir | San Jose Boudoir Photography



Boudoir Coterie Portrait photography

Happy Fashion Friday!

Bridal Boudoir is becoming more and more popular these days (if you don’t believe me – take a look at Pinterest!) and there are so many cute outfit options. If you’re planning a bridal boudoir session and need some inspiration, read on!

I had a boudoir photo session about a year ago as a gift for myself (okay, it was actually a gift for my husband-to-be, but if you’ve had a boudoir photo shoot you know what I’m talking about!). Bridal was one part of the session, but looking back I really put a lot more effort into my other two outfits. With all of the other wedding planning I had going on, when it came to the bridal part of my session, I just grabbed a cute white bra and panty set from Victoria’s Secret and called it a day. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a good bra and panty set, I was really just in a rush and had no idea how many other options there were.

If you’re in the midst of planning a wedding AND a bridal boudoir photo shoot, here are some fun ideas to get your creative juices flowing. Now that I’ve found all of these, I might just have to have an anniversary session one day. White isn’t really just for brides anyway. bridal boudoir

 

Clockwise:
1. Cosabella Elise Robe – Shopbop
2. Bridal Bliss – Curvy Girl
3. Anticipating Nightfall Bodysuit – ModCloth
4. Mimi Holliday Merengue Teddy – Journelle

When you’re planning for a bridal session, don’t forget about accessories. One of the easiest things to do is to wear your wedding accessories if you already have them. Might as well kill two birds with one stone. Flowers also make a great prop and they don’t have to be anything too fancy. I’m a big fan of a simple bouquet with just one type of flower like we have shown HERE in one of my past bridal posts. It’s a great way to add a pop of color without being a distraction. Or, if you happen to be splurging for a trial bouquet and time it right, you could always use that too.
