Normally during the winter months, I love nothing more than to stay in bed a little later on Sunday mornings. Last weekend I traded in an extra hour or two of sleep for a gorgeous bridal boudoir session in the studio (let me tell you, it was totally worth it!!)! I photographed Amanda for the first time with her fiancé during their Rowayton, Connecticut engagement session back in 2016, so it was such a treat to reconnect with this beauty during her boudoir session on Sunday. With hair and makeup done by the very talented Kiki of Belle Noelle Beauty Group, this was a session that was sure to have a timeless and elegant vibe to it!
Some women like to stay close to their comfort zone, while others like Amanda get a bit more playful as their session unfolds. Whichever happens to you during your session is a-okay! I've had clients on both ends of the spectrum, and all of their sessions end with beautiful results each and every time! Another aspect I enjoyed about Amanda's boudoir style is the fact that she brought a variety of outfits with her, ranging from cozy knit sweaters to knee-high socks to lace bralettes to chiffon babydolls. Many people think the only outfit option for a boudoir session is lingerie, and that couldn't be farther from the truth! Bringing in different outfit styles added such a variety to Amanda's portraits which in turn will create more visual interest for her final gallery!
Normally I don't ask clients to look directly at my camera too often, as my style of photography is much more candid. Amanda has beautiful piercing blue eyes that popped so well during her session, there was just no way I could avoid asking her to look at my camera! With all of the natural light that floods in from seven large windows in the studio, I couldn't stop snapping!
Isn't she a beauty?!
I love this cozy-intimate look Amanda brought as one of her outfit options!
A quick outfit change to a sweet soft pink lace babydoll paired with a cathedral length veil!
A simple change in lip color and an added bridal hairpiece from Kiki gave Amanda a beautiful 1920's Hollywood starlet vibe!
This may be one of my favorite portraits from Amanda's session!
I hope you enjoyed this bridal boudoir session! Do you know Amanda? Show her some love by commenting below!
