Cheap Thrills edition no. 1: Boudoir Denver Photography

I love all the lovelies I get to meet by being a boudoir photographer. Seriously I love every single women I photograph because they are all so unique. Majority of the women I photograph have 1. Never done a boudoir photo shoot. 2. Are really nervous. 3. Don’t know what to wear! So I am here to help with #3. What to wear, boudoir edition!

Adore Me lingerieWhat:  Savannah from Adore Me

Where: http://www.adoreme.com/showrooms/fashion/fashion-dd/savannah.html

Price: $39.95 for the set

Love: I was instantly in love with the Adore Me website. It asks you questions to find lingerie that would be perfect for you. What I love about Ms. Savannah (the lingerie) is the color. Soft pink and black is so classic, never can go wrong. Feminine and sweet I love the details in both the bra and the panties.

Grandmother’s Corset

 

 

Back from a fabulous week in NYC. Finally saw my favorite painting, probably the painting that inspired me to be an artist A Starry Night in person. Now to get back to blogging, I have two new boudoir photo shoots to show you! Thank you ladies for allowing me to post your photos. I respect my clients privacy first and foremost and never post any pictures online without permission.

 

I was really excited (I don’t know if that’s the right word) to photograph this lovely lady because she is actually a best friend of mine that I’ve known since before we were women. We met in middle school and although we’ve grown apart since the days we spent practically every moment together it was such an honor to photograph a friend. It is crazy to think that we started to become woman together, going shopping and doing each others hair, then starting high school together. When I say doing each others hair I more so mean her doing mine, which is funny now that she is a hairstylist and actually did her own hair and makeup for the photo session.

 

Besides being a dear friend of mine I loved the vintage lingerie she used because it’s not just any ordinary lingerie but actually a corset her grandmother made for her honeymoon. How adorable is that?! I love the red and white checkered pattern on it that unique from the typical lace or satin fabrics used. After seeing it I could tell where my friend gets her individual creative personality from. It just goes to show that class never goes out of style.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was such an honor photographing my friend, I can honestly say she has grown into a beautiful woman both inside and out.

or LBo which was the nickname she gave me in middle school.

Royal Wedding Boudoir Inspiration

I’ll admit it I had Royal Wedding fever. I grew up in love with Princess Diana and watched Disney Princess movies until I memorized them by heart, but I did have some restraint and did not wake up at 2am to watch the… I recorded it. This is not a blog comment about the wedding although Kate was breath taking and her dress was totally Grace Kelley inspired, I loved the lace and vintage flair to her whole look.

 

Now let’s pretend for a moment that Kate wanted to have a bridal boudoir session. Far fetched maybe… but maybe not. After all the reclining nude paintings of the Renaissance were some times commissioned by a King, Duke, etc to show off their new bride and to inspire fertility. Blue is obviously Kate’s color, but rather than the royal blue she wore with her engagement session I think she would look lovely in this powdered blue and creme speciality made just for the future Queen French lingerie by Liliana Casanova bustier and panties which is sold by Denver local lingerie store Pampered Passions. Besides Kate’s dress another element I loved about the Royal Wedding was those amazing fascinators and english hats! To bring English flair to Kate’s bridal boudoir session I would add a fascinator inspired headpiece from Twigs and Honey. This headpiece gives a nod to royalty of the past, totally Marie Antoinette inspired! Of course no boudoir session would be complete without the prefect royal setting, in Denver there there would be no better place than The Brown Palace. I just love the classic feel of this hotel, it’s like being transformed to the past. I’ve never had the pleasure of staying there myself but Roosevelt, Eisenhower and Reagan have (They even have rooms that honor them). Boudoir is for everyone… commoners and royalty.

Local Lovlies : Theda Bara Vintage Denver, CO

I would like to highlight Theda Bara Vintage, a vintage lingerie shop local in Denver, CO. I just love finding new things on etsy and other blogs, but I especially love find local finds! I just adore the vintage trend and nothing is classier than pure 1960’s lingerie. What is even more fantastic is that there are so many different styles and prices on the lingerie they offer. Here are just a few examples of the constantly changing goods offered at their online store…
