Fashion Friday Show-Stopping Shoes | San Jose Boudoir Photography



Boudoir Coterie Portrait photographyFor last week’s Fashion Friday we talked about fabulous backsides. Today I wanted to feature another fun detail that’s often overlooked – shoes!

Shoes might not be the first thing to come to mind when you’re planning boudoir outfits, but they can really add another dimension to your photos.

Got a pair of killer heels that leave you with aching feet and blisters? Perfect! Since you’ll only be on your feet for a short amount of time, and you won’t have to walk 16 blocks, a boudoir session is the perfect time to wear those totally impractical stilettos you promised yourself you’d find a reason to wear one day. Even if you only wear the shoes once, you’ll have photos to cherish forever.

For my session I wore a pair of black five-inch heels that had been hiding in the back of my closet since the day I purchased them at TJMaxx (a great place to look for shoes if you need them). They turned out to be difficult to walk in and a bit too big, but my judgement was clouded by the $19.99 price tag. They might not be great for everyday, but they were perfect for my session.

Need inspiration? Here are a few of my favorites from around the web:

If you’re thinking about what shoes to wear for a boudoir session, it’s important to plan around the rest of your outfit. Do you want
your shoes to be the star of the show like these?

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!
