Red Undies and a New Year | Denver Boudoir Photography

Hello Ladies!

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas surrounded by those you love. I know I will be hitting the gym extra hard next week because of all the Christmas cookies I have in my house. I have the world’s biggest sweet tooth!

Can you believe it is already days away from 2012! This year has been quite the year; I have so much to be thankful for. This year was the first year I dedicated myself to 100% boudoir! I launched the Boudoir Denver web site, got over 100 fans on facebook, had the 1st annual pin up calendar photo shoot and have meet some amazing ladies that warm my heart. SO much to be thankful for and this is just the beginning! I can’t wait to see what 2012 will bring.

New Year’s Eve is my FAVORITE holiday! I just love what it represents, a new beginning and a reflection on the past year. Oh yeah and the fireworks!!! I LOVE FIREWORKS! A few years ago a friend of mine was lucky enough to be in Italy for New Year’s Eve (something that is on my bucket list) and he told of his wild goose chase for red underwear. In Italy it is considered good luck to wear red underwear on New Years Eve. Not only do the Italians consider it to be good look but in Spain they also follow a similar tradition. Even the Chinese wear red underwear for New Years to ward of dangers. Here are some of my favorite red panties, with underwear this cute it’s hard to not make this a tradition of your own!

These red lacy lovelies are from Hanky Panky, they have an entire line of red lingerie which you can search by color. There are even four different reds to choose from… Angora Red, Cayenne Red, Riot Red and Classic Red. I just love their signature boy shorts ($29) that are both comfortable and sexy. I am also in love with their line of lace garter belts ($35) that can be paired with any of their thongs or bikini cut underwear.

For a retro look I really like these red and black polka dot highwaist underwear. Find these from Bonsai Kitten ($29).

ImageI love finding new stores on Etsy and I have fallen head over heads for Amourouse. This store sells custom made underwear sets and underwear. I love the retro feel of this adorable red floral bow set ($80), the top even converts into a halter top. Totally reminds me of Ms. Norma Jean.

 

Wishing you all health, wealth and happiness in 2012!

XOXO

Meet the Hair & Makeup Artist

When coming up with my vision for Boudoir Denver one of the things I wanted was to offer the complete package. Like a day at the spa I want my ladies to feel pampered when they schedule a boudoir session. This is why I made the decision to include hair and makeup with every session booked. Not only is the worry of “How do I do my hair and makeup” now solved but also when was the last time you had your hair and makeup done professionally? Prom? Your wedding day? I want part of the experience not just to be the photographs but also getting glamorous and doing something out of the norm for the every day.

Say Hello to Samantha!

Samantha from Lady Charm Artistry will be the hair and makeup artist for Boudoir Denver. I have been a fan of her fashion work for a long time. What I love about Samantha is that she doesn’t play it safe; she likes to get creative and try new things. Of course you may not always want to go bold and she does a beautiful job with soft and feminine hair and makeup too. I am excited to be working with Samantha not only for her talent but also for just being such an amazing person. I know you ladies will fall in love with her too. Plus for those brides to be out there thinking about who to use for a hair and makeup artist having Sam do your hair and makeup is the perfect trial run (I know you wont be disappointed). Be sure to check out Samantha’s website and also go like her on facebook, she frequently will post pictures of her latest work for great inspiration.
