Richmond Boudoir Studio Anniversary

I can hardly believe it's already been a year since I got the keys to my new studio. Wow! Time flies huh.
Man it was a lot of work getting this place ship shape and ready for me to work out of but we did it in, what now feels like, record time. Here is the original before and after post: Studio Before/After

I still get excited every time I walk in here and see all of this beautiful natural light. After 5 years of working in near cave like light I am so thankful to have this light drenched space. 

Little things too like being able to put up a door sign and display my work on the walls. Who would have thought that all of those little things would ever feel so big. 

Today I am beyond grateful to all of the wonderful women who I have been fortunate to work with. You guys are really why I am able to have a space to work from that brings me such joy. You guys and an amazingly supportive family! Here is to many more years of being able to provide you with an unforgettable self esteem boosting experience.

Thank you all!

Richmond Boudoir and Glamour Photographer

"Cultivate your curves- they may be dangerous but they won't be avoided"-- Mae West

I am very fortunate as a boudoir photographer to meet such an amazing variety of women. This adventurous soul came in to do a group glamour session, a boudoir party, with me. She was treating her mother to a milestone birthday present. I'll feature the group shots later but today let's focus on Miss L's solo set.

Many of my clients have a hard time choosing wardrobe. That's one of the reasons I do a style consultation and work with you to select pieces that will flatter your figure. No one should have to navigate the crazy world of lingerie alone. Ms L chose pieces that really highlight her assets. We started her session in this curve hugging wiggle dress. She also brought in some sweaters and fishnets (a favorite of mine). She showed off her beautiful back tattoo and pulled off a sexy red slip. Great choices L.

Even though this experience started as a gift to her mom I know it ended up being a gift to all 3 lovely ladies.

Thank you L for bringing in your whole crew and allowing me to work with you all. It was a real pleasure.

"They are beautiful! (And my other half loved them too!)" --L from Northern VA.

Richmond Boudoir Photographer

To say this hot mom works hard to maintain her figure is a complete understatement. She has seriously amazing abs and all of her hard work truly does show. Makes me wonder what I could accomplish if I had even a fraction of her motivation. I'm happy she came in for a session with me and that I get to share some shots from her set. This was a fun (albeit hot) day. 

We started off with a little glam and moved into her boudoir set. I love when a client brings in great wardrobe too. She paid a visit to the wonderful ladies at Fiamour in Carytown before her session. In case you aren't familiar with them they are a luxury lingerie boutique in the heart of Richmond's Carytown shopping area. Be sure to stop in and check out their selection of fine lingerie. They have some very beautiful pieces and a wonderful range of sizes. Tell them your shopping for your boudoir session with me and they will help you with wardrobe that is elegant and sexy.

Serious ab envy!

Always fun to work in a good pair of Christian Louboutin's.

Why do a boudoir session?

Just squeezing in a quick post from a recent session. Having the kids home all summer and maintaining a full workload is leaving me with little time to blog. Hope it's not looking to sad and lonely.

One reason a lot of my clients come in to do a boudoir session is to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Whether it's been 1 year or 20, a boudoir photo session is a seriously unique gift, that captures your femininity and beauty, and one your partner is not likely to forget for years to come. 

This lovely lady came in to celebrate her anniversary by giving her husband exactly that, an unforgettable gift. Her boudoir photo session was so much fun. She is a gorgeous woman with an amazing smile and I just really enjoyed working with her. Her hubby is a lucky guy.

Before and After
Makeup and hair by Jennifer Mantura- one of my personal favorite Richmond, VA makeup artists.

She seriously rocked this jersey too. It was a great that she brought in her own, rather than his, the fit was right on and we were able to play with it more.

Sexy little sweater coupled with fun, colorful panties worked well for her too.

We worked in a teeny bit of bridal boudoir styling into the session too by using her veil.
I'm sure this is an anniversary gift he couldn't get enough of.

Don't just take my word for it. 
"So Ginger...

He loved the pictures!! He kept saying OMG with every page turn! I want to take more pictures now!! It was so fun and I enjoy the compliments from my friends! Thanks so much for making this happen when I needed them!"

Richmond Boudoir Photography

Sometimes it's true that the sexiest thing a woman can wear is her smile. Today's session is no exception to that. She has an incredible smile. I've been fortunate enough to see it at several points over the last 5 years. Her first beauty session with me. Her engagement session, her beautiful wedding and most recently when she visited me in the new studio for an updated boudoir session. I love that I've had the chance to photograph her at so many points in her life and look forward to many more.
Enjoy some of the images from her session and maybe get some idea's for what you'd like to do at a boudoir photo session of your very own.

Wardrobe ideas: Vintage sweater with a wide neck and matching lace pantie. Nothing to complicate just simplistic, classic and beautiful.

422 Studio offers boudoir and glamour photography services to the Richmond, Virginia (and surround communities) area.
