Laurie | Nanaimo Boudoir Photography

I love boudoir photography. I also love a great boudoir session. I love it even more when it's with someone I know and enjoy chatting with. The session just flies by! Laurie's one hour session turned into an almost 3 hour session by the time we were done chatting and laughing our way through the shoot! Those are always the best ones :) The photos are created when there's chemistry and a connection between subject & photographer. A lot of photographers will tell you that light is the most important thing in creating images but personally, I think that light & connection are tied for first place when it comes to photographing people. You can have a image of a gorgeous woman but if there's no connection, nothing to draw you in to the image and doesn't make you feel anything is it really such a great image? Laurie isn't a big bouncy curl kind of girl so we wanted to give her a look that was still gorgeous & glamorous but stayed true to her island girl roots. Melody (one of my awesome hair & make up artists!) gave  Laurie some gorgeous beachy waves to give her a bit of a bohemian look while still giving her some volume - big hair always photographs better!  We also decided to give her a beautiful pop of color on her eyes to accentuate her beautiful skin tone and outfit choices.

It's important to remember that you have a voice in how your hair & make up is done for a session. Your photographer and stylist will give input and are always happy to make a decision for you but don't ever be afraid to speak up if you want something different or if you are't happy with how anything looks :)

"There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful than a woman being un-apologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty."— Steve Maraboli
