Finally, without further ado, I present you with part two of Rebekah’s out door owl inspired boudoir photo shoot. I did not have power for almost a week because of Hurricane Sandy (I hope that all of my readers were safe and warm!) and then I had to play a lot of catch up. Life comes at you fast! Good news is that I finally got a new used car. (The last one broke down miserably two days after I bought it!)
So here it is, the long over-due images. Enjoy! Please leave some constructive criticism as a reply and also let Becca know how amazing she was! These photos were all taken at the lovely Gunpowder Falls State Park. Make up and styling by yours truly. To see more images from the photo shoot visit Lovely Lens Photography on Facebook and find the album.
Rebekah allowed me to have complete creative freedom with this outdoor boudoir shoot. The photo shoot was inspired by fashion, owls, and the beautiful autumn weather. Her only request was that the photo shoot, although boudoir, was to be conservative, especially because of the out door location. Together we came up with these gorgeous images:
For these corn maze photos we paused between images because we had a hay ride audience drive by about every 10 minutes. Rebekah was shy of the crowd, but she braved it out for these photos at Brad’s Produce in Churchville, Maryland. I bought this mask over a month ago and knew exactly what I wanted to use it for. Thank you for trusting my vision, Rebekah!
Part 2 of Rebekah’s boudoir shoot was taken at Gunpowder State Park. Those photos will be up by next week. Please leave a reply for Rebekah and tell her what an amazing job she did modeling!
I am so excited to be posting Laura’s dance/ boudoir photos on the blog today! I had so much fun working with Leah and Laura. I took the photos of Leah and Laura at the same time and we had a blast in the studio! Although the theme was similar I tried to get different photographs of each of them to make their photographs reflect their style and individual personalities. Here are some of my personal faves! I wish that I could jump like that! To get this coloring I gelled the strobes with a purple gel and I got this awesome black light effect:These ghostly images are among my personal favorites:
Laura is graduating college with me this coming weekend. This photo shoot was such a fun way for the both of us to unwind from the stress of senior project and our finals. Congrats, Laura! I also owe Leah and Laura a big thank you for trusting me in the studio with all of the crazy lighting I set up as well as the flour adventure we had. Honestly, they were both amazing and let me try every idea that came to mind, no matter how long it took. I could not have gotten all of these fun images with out their patience and willingness for adventure.
Last week I had the privilege to do two studio boudoir/ dance photo shoots at once. Leah and Laura are sisters and we had quite a party in the studio last Sunday. Both Leah and Laura are dancers so I had the amazing opportunity of photographing them as they danced (and pulled off incredible jumps!) aside from taking boudoir photos. The photo shoot turned into more than a boudoir session. These are some of my favorite photographs of Leah from last week. How amazing are her eyes?!Incredible!All colored effects are from using tinted light gels over the studio strobes. For this one I covered a spot light and aimed it at Leah while I had two soft boxes set up to blow out the back ground. Now for the fun part. I have always wanted to do something a little messy in the studio (lots of people have done glitter so I wanted to avoid the shiny substance. Plus, it sticks to the studio surfaces for months) so I opted for flour. I know that it is a little cliche, but I had to give it a chance. It ended up being a lot of fun!This fun little behind the scenes out take was too cute to leave out of this post!This photograph reminds me of star dust. At the beginning of next week I will be posting Laura’s photos. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. This was the first time I have done a conceptual shoot in a long time. I would love to hear your advice!
I have been doing so many different photo shoots this past week. Two senior collections and two boudoir/ dance sessions! And an engagement session is coming up next weekend. Now that Spring is finally here I feel so refreshed! Here is a sneak peak of one of my latest photo shoots. This is a dance/ boudoir photo shoot that will be up by the end of the week.
Today I had my last college class at Cazenovia. It feels incredible and unreal at the same time. Spring is a time for fresh starts. This photo shoot marks the end of my college career and the beginning of my professional life. Still caught in the winter haze? Go out and try something new. Challenge yourself and reawaken your creative and adventurous side! Have a fabulous week, everyone!
