Classic. Beautiful. Feminine. My latest Boudoir shoot at Casa Del Mar was all of those things and more! When hunting for a Boudoir photographer online, Anna stumbled across one of my Boudoir pictures from my shoot with beautiful Jane… apparently, one of my pictures had won a Boudoir Contest online – without my even knowing or entering! The web is funny.
So as I always do before a boudoir shoot, I spent time chatting with Anna about who she is, what she loves about her body, what she thinks is sexy/beautiful/sensual… Anna gave me a great run-down of things she loves: vintage lingerie, her legs, romantic photos, and more – all of which we incorporated into her shoot. I also asked Anna what her husband loves about her and her body… and I LOVE that without hesitation, she said Everything!
There were so many amazing pics of Anna that I’m blogging her boudoir session in two parts :) Note: not all of the images are blogged for privacy reasons :) but these first 2 black & white’s are my absolute favorites!
So beautiful… doesn’t Anna remind you of Carrie Otis?!
How much fun is a girl in bed with a camera?!
Silly and free :)
I love shooting in a window… Casa is so great for this, and we’ll be shooting this set-up at my next Boudoir Workshop!
Anna had mentioned to me prior to the shoot that she “never photographs well” – uh, huh… that’s what they all say :) And nothing makes me happier than when a woman sees her photos and says not only are these the most beautiful photos ever taken of her, but also “You really captured me!” and that’s the part I love :)
ps. more of Anna’s boudoir shoot on the blog this weekend!
***Updated to add: How could I have forgotten to credit my fabulous make-up artist and hair stylist?! Shannon Jankula is incredible at creating any look my heart desires and is such a dream to work and play with. Shannon is a talented photographer as well, and is a Christa Meola Portrait Workshop grad. Keep your eye out for her – she’s taking my Boudoir Workshop on April 10th and 11th, and I know her images will kick ass. Also, if you mention you’re a big fan of Christa Meola Pictures, you’ll get a huge discount from Shannon for make-up and hair on your next photo shoot or just for a day when you want to feel pampered and extra pretty :)
