Fine Art Destination Boudoir Photography | Florida | Part 3 of 4

©Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max TromblyContinuing the travel boudoir series, I had the honor of photographing my mother for the second time.  Yes, you heard that right, ^ this gorgeous woman is my mother.  We started off on the same rocks from the first post in this series (if you missed that post click here). ©Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max Trombly©Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max Trombly ©Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max TromblyNext we went to New Smyrna Beach, which is a clothing optional beach.  We played in the surf for hours and walked miles up and down the beach.  (Click here for more photos from New Smyrna Beach).

Fine Art Destination Boudoir Photography | Florida | Part 1 of 4

BreathlessBoudoir_destination_florida_0045_BWI don't think I've ever been more excited about a shoot (I probably say that after every epic shoot, but my job seriously never stops amazing me)!  A friend and I went to visit my mom in Florida so I could play around with creating some fine art nudes on the beach and rocks.  I was like a kid in a candy store! I shot so much that I'm going to have to break the blog about this trip into four parts! I LOVE BEACH BOUDOIR!!! So this will be part one of our travel boudoir series, part two will be posted next Monday.  Be sure to follow the blog (blue button at the bottom of this post) so you'll be notified when it's posted! My mom brought us to a beach that I like to refer to as Sedona beach.  The sand has a reddish hue like the dirt in Sedona, Arizona and there are these really awesome rock formations called coquina rocks.  These rocks are made up of billions of smashed up mollusks (tiny shelled creatures), their bodies are basically the glue that holds the shells together.  They make quite an amazing site!  The curves of the rocks compliment the curves of a nude figure perfectly. Everything flows together naturally and organically.

This first set of photos are from midday the first time we went to the rocks.  We were so in love with the way everything looked that we decided we had to come back for sunrise.  BreathlessBoudoir_destination_florida_0072_BW ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max Trombly ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max TromblyIf you know me, you know I am NOT a morning person.  There are two things I will roll out of bed for before the break of dawn; fishing and photoshoots.  Though, mornings like these make me want to wake up with the sun every.single.day.  The sea spray refreshingly misted us when the waves crashed onto the rocks and the air was crisp yet thick at the same time.  All the colors of our world were enhanced by the sun low in the horizon, slowly climbing it's way through the sky and stretching out it's rays as dawn unfurled.   ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max Trombly ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max Trombly There's a certain sense of peace that comes with standing at the shoreline as the sun awakens.  It's a calm peace that wraps itself around your skin, kissing and caressing your every pore.  To stand naked in it's presence is utter ecstasy that can't be matched.  The repetition of waves dance on your eardrums putting you in a state of hypnotic bliss.  It's like nothing else in the world exists, except you on this little spot where the sand meets the ocean.    BreathlessBoudoir_destination_florida_0503 ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max TromblyBreathlessBoudoir_destination_florida_0509_BW BreathlessBoudoir_destination_florida_0681_BW BreathlessBoudoir_destination_florida_0702_BW This is only the beginning of something that is going to be much, much bigger.  I'm so in love with photographing outdoors.  Stay tuned for more information on how YOU can do your own beach shoot in July!  Info will be posted here first, so make sure you follow the blog.

Our "rut" and a SMOKING hot Lafayette Boudoir Session!!!

©2013 Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max TromblyNo matter what job it is that you work, or what you do in life, from time to time everyone experiences getting caught in a rut.  Well, Max and I recently found ourselves in that rut.  It happens to the best of us, yes, but we're not allowed to not rock all the time!  We have a job to do and we take it very seriously.... making women feel sexy!  We were getting bored with our studio and shooting the same stuff all the time.  We needed a change, some inspiration, that little UMPH that sparks the life into us and makes us do what we do. You see, the problem was... well... this is somewhat embarrassing for a boudoir photographer to admit.... ahem.  Well, we were... too timid.  There, I said it.  Ridiculous, right?!  I know, I thought the same thing.  We pride ourselves at making our clients' comfort our top priority.  We never.... ever ever ever... want to make a client feel uncomfortable at any point during a session.  Our clients put a great deal of trust in us and it's a huge honor for us to be chosen as someone's boudoir photographer because it's a sensitive genre of photography.  Somewhere along the lines we became overly cautious and stopped shooting photos that pushed the limits of sexy.  Our work became *gasp* tame!!!  Tame to us, at least.  We like to push boundaries from time to time. We knew some of our clients really wanted to create photos to make their husband's mouth drop open, photos that were seriously hot and steamy.  But we failed to differentiate which clients wanted what... there's so many things we can do with boudoir so we just played it safe.

Moving forward.  We implemented some changes and all of a sudden WHOA!!!  Our work got A LOT steamier!  One of the changes we made was a pre-session questionnaire asking clients a series of questions to get to know them better, and to determine what kind of session they want to do.  Questions asking what degree of undress they are comfortable with helps us know how far to push.  One question in particular has changed everything.  The question is "Is there a certain look you are going for?  For example; more anonymous shots, portraits, detail and closeup body shots, smiling & playful, seductive, tastefully erotic, black & white, etc.  We're going to get a variety, but this helps us to know what you're looking for".  I knew from the very first questionnaire we received that it was a game changer.  It allowed us to know how far to go.  You can never guess what someone wants, women surprise us all the time!  We shoot a variety of styles, not everyone fits in the same box.  Some women want glamorous, some want playful, others want sultry, and some even tastefully erotic.

This brings us to Nicole.  She was the life raft we needed to get us out of our rut.  First off, her session took place in Lafayette, Louisiana.  One of our favorite locations to shoot at!!!  So we were already super excited and inspired.  We love getting out of the studio for a change of scenery.  Nicole let us know that she was looking for some tastefully erotic photos.  Jackpot!  We knew this was our perfect opportunity to see if we could do it.  Max and I pumped ourselves up on the way to the session saying that we would create the images that we wanted to create without worrying about going to far because we knew what Nicole's limits were.  From the moment we met her til the moment she left, it was pure magic. We were able to explore things that we haven't been able to with clients before.

Here are the images to show you exactly what I mean.  I'm warning you though, they're pretty steamy!

WARNING: This post is extra spicy!

Meggan was another (very exciting) addition to the "Breathless in New Orleans" special.  Her session was extra hot!  Think 50 Shades of Grey, but even hotter! I'll just let the photos speak for themselves...
