Best Way to Relax at a Boudoir Photo Shoot: Laughter

Best Way to Relax at a Boudoir Photo Shoot?


It?s fun to look back at my boudoir portrait work, and note what’s changed in my style ad approach to photographing boudoir – and what has remained the same. ?One thing that I?ve realized is that the more boudoir sessions I do, the more I love the real laughter and happiness and levity that can emerge in a boudoir shoot.

To be able to see the beauty and humanity and love in the world – to capture that in a candid portrait, to immortalize it on paper (or in a bridal gift album) – this is something I am always grateful for. ?You can see for yourself that once we release any nervous energy in laughter, we can get into the sultry later on.
