Working it! Creating Variety, No 2.

Boudoir photography is all about using what you’ve got and focusing on what’s awesome. Remember that post, Working It! Creating Variety, on how to create beauty and variety when you show up on a crappy shoot location?  Well here’s another little tip in the same vein. So when you’re low on pretty backdrops and you’ve already shot every wall in the room plus the seamless background paper…

And here are some more of my favorite pics from this boudoir photography session with Mrs. X, a thirty-three year old mom in Los Angeles (yes, I travel for shoots!). Her favorite body parts that she loves are her eyes, boobs and bum – so we went ahead and focused on that 🙂

Mrs. X confessed to being super nervous before our shoot, but as you can see, that didn’t stop us from capturing beautiful sensual pictures.

Pretty stunning for a mom who had never posed before and was “soooo nervous” right?

We had a blast on this shoot, and Mrs. X was super fun, open to all ideas, and the sweetest woman you’d ever want to meet.  A big THANK YOU to Mrs. X! for being brave and vulnerable, and letting me share your pictures as well as the process in making them.

Hope you loved the tip I shared in the video! Leave a comment and let me know if it’s helpful and if you’d like to see more!

xoxo, Christa
