Featured: Huffington Post – Couples Boudoir Edition

Amanda and Kristin 098 900x600 Featured: Huffington Post   Couples Boudoir Edition

Tonight I was finishing up with a clients ordering appointment when she stepped out to use the restroom. I took the moment to check my phone to see if I had any messages from my husband and noticed an email from HuffPost…

Last week I had received an email from them requesting permission to use one of my images from a couple years ago for an upcoming post about Couples Boudoir Sessions!

I was understandably flattered, and excited by the prospect! I reached out to my clients to make sure that they were on board with this usage (because it goes beyond my typical model release) and as soon as I received confirmation from them I sent authorization to the HuffPost editor, Kelsey Borresen, to go ahead and use the image for the post :)

The image above is not the one they used, however it is another from the session… The one they used in the article was actually inspired by an iconic photograph of two lesbians from the 90’s. We put our own spin on the image and it is absolutely one of my favorite images from their session!

Wardrobe Wednesday – Boudoir Edition

This week for Wardrobe Wednesday I decided to give a bit more of an in depth view into some great pieces that would be perfect for your boudoir session!

 

First, there are a few pieces that I recently found at City Drawers in Belfast (stay tuned for more information on some collaborations we have in the works!)

Ignore the cell phone snapshots, it was all I had with me at the moment, but I just fell in love with both of these pieces! I didn’t have a chance to thoroughly inspect all of their amazing pieces, but I definitely saw some other very fun items that you may not expect to find in this quaint little shop on Main st in Belfast. Be sure to stop in next time you’re in town and get a free Bra Fitting with Stephanie and check out what they’ve got… and feel free to send me photos of your favorites! And don’t forget, they also have a store in Bath, Maine now as well!

 

If you aren’t in the Belfast or Bath areas and like to do your shopping online, this piece here is absolutely gorgeous, and conveniently available on Amazon! For only $12 and available in two different styles and SO many color options, this is definitely a Go-To piece for anyone! Sizes Small through XXL available!

I love everything about this outfit! Available in sizes XS-XL with a slightly padded top for those who want a little added modesty during their session!

How wearing makeup can affect your self esteem

Maine Boudoir Studio 010 900x600 How wearing makeup can affect your self esteem

 

Yesterday morning, while drinking my coffee and scrolling Facebook I came across a post by a local radio station. It was a message they were posting from one of their followers, talking about how her 8 year old came home from school and asked if she could wear makeup because a classmate did. The mother said  “The makeup may improve my daughter’s low self-esteem. It may also attract unwanted attention from pervs. Is 8 years-old too young for makeup?”

I read through some of the comments and overwhelmingly everyone had negative comments about makeup in general. Continue reading »

Celebrating New Studio and Our 4 Year Anniversary!

 

Weston Family 061 900x600 Celebrating New Studio and Our 4 Year Anniversary!September is a month of big ideas and new ventures for me. On September 1st of this year, I celebrated the 4 year anniversary of deciding that I would take my photography hobby and turn it into a business. The last 4 years have been full of excitement, stress, ideas and growth!

Two years ago this week, I looked at the first place I considered renting for a studio. This is when the dream of moving my growing boudoir business out of my home started. I soon realized it wouldn’t work for me and started brainstorming ways I could make my dream a reality.  Within 4 months I had figured out a projected budget and an ideal location, and then found an amazing space….
