Oakland Boudoir, storytelling and legacy
I love creating stories that celebrate my client’s unique stories. For Danielle that means we get together whenever she has a significant year and do a boudoir & portrait photoshoot. Someday we will take all of the photos taken over the years and compile them into one beautiful book that celebrates her body, her youth, her imperfections and aging, her strength, fears, and growth. This is a concept I absolutely love and I am so happy to have the opportunity to do this with someone.
“the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself”
Here are a few images from our last boudoir shoot.
For this boudoir shoot she opted for my ‘mini session’ keeping things minimal and natural.
I always like to include some beauty portraits in each boudoir session. We kept the makeup simple, with pretty much no makeup at all. Just a little mascara to help make her eyes pop.
I love these high waisted undies, paired with the crop top and thigh highs. It is a super sexy combination.
A sheer lacy top adds so much to a boudoir outfit. It covers you up a bit more without hiding too much.
I have oodles of fabric that I keep in my props bin in my studio. The creative opportunities of fabric are pretty much endless. I love the abstract and ethereal look we created here.
Sometimes something as simple as a pretty dress can be the perfect boudoir outfit. There is a really subtle sensuality to this outfit without being too sexy. The result is an image that can be proudly shared even with mom, grandma, or your kids. True beauty.
If you have any questions about my Oakland boudoir photography studio, or the various options please don’t hesitate to contact me! Also, if you are thinking about doing a similar long term boudoir book please get in touch and we can talk about all the options and rewards of doing this. I cover all of the San Francisco Bay Area and I am happy to travel throughout the US for your boudoir photoshoot!
