Lately I have felt way more connected to children and babies than I have in the past. I think the main reason for that feeling is that I am no longer afraid of them. Instead I am excited to meet them and experience what they have to offer. Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph a precious newborn by the name of Clara. Clara’s parents are past clients of mine that had come in for a maternity shoot early this year. So technically this was not the first time I was meeting miss Clara. This beautiful little one had an extremely difficult journey into this world, yet has an amazing peacefulness about her. When I look at her, I feel that she is very clear, very graceful. I feel like she knows what she wants already, and I believe that she will achieve it all!
Thank you Clara, for your patience with us while we photographed you, and for sharing a spark of your precious little self with me.
I am still going through all the amazing shots from 2012 and here are a few shots from just before Christmas. This red slip with garters from La Senza was beautiful and made me laugh… it jingled! And then she pulled out the total Biker Chick look with the metal studded bra with hanging chains… so awesome!! That was something I have not seen yet in the studio and I had a blast shooting it! SEXY SEXY SEXY!
I can not forget to mention the truly awesome makeup styling by Astrid of Eclectica Beauty Studio. Her airbrushing was magical!
I love these moments when we capture real laughter in the boudoir studio. This was one of my favorite shoots. She had the most perfectly flattering and stunning lingerie that accentuated her outer beauty! This women was such an inspiration to me. Her daughter was the one that contacted me, as she had come to Lipstick&Lace the year before to have her own photo shoot and she just loved the experience. It had been a gift to her groom on their wedding day. Now it was time for her mom to get remarried and she sent her to me for a boudoir experience as a gift for her soon to be husband. Like mother like daughter… there was plenty of giggles!
With tomorrow’s Boudoir Marathon Sessions coming up, I decided it was a good time to go through the images from the last marathon shoot to find my favorite shot for inspiration. I just love this beautiful, elegant piece of black lingerie with the beaded details. Check out the Lipstick&Lace Photography Facebook Page to see more of her amazing, graceful photos.
