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

©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen TromblyThis is the last blog in the travel boudoir series from Florida, and possibly one of my favorite... though it's such a close race because I love ALL of the posts so much! My heart is in the forest, that's where I feel the most connected to nature, and the most at peace.  It also proved to be the most challenging shoot of all of them. The day before we photographed this portion of the series we were scouting locations and I saw the dappled light.  At first I was kind of bummed because dappled light is very hard to work with in most scenarios because the exposure is so different in the bright areas where the sun is shining though than it is in the darker areas. This causes the bright areas to "blow out", or turn completely white and lack all details.  Not so pretty.  While we were walking I had an idea, so I took a test shot to see if it would work and HOLY SMOKES did it ever work!  Not only did it work, but it looked just as awesome as I thought it would in my head!!!  ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen TromblyIt created a mysterious and moody look to the photos.  It was a challenge to find the perfect spots, with the light hitting the right places and the background not too busy, but when we did it was magic!  I can't wait to do more outdoor sessions! ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen Trombly ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen Trombly ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen Trombly ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen Trombly ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen Trombly

Now that this is the last post from this series I'm going to have to go out and do another destination session!

That being said, we're open for booking TODAY for our next beach shoot, which will be held in Navarre Beach, Florida on July 15-17.  Our space is very limited, so call now to book: 225-571-3668.

Each session will include hair and makeup styling and a sunset or sunrise session on the sugar white sands of Navarre Beach. We will send out a questionnaire once you book your session to determine what style beach session you would like to do (soft flowing fabrics, sexy swim suit, tastefully erotic, etc.). Your session will be completely customized for you.  You don't have to be completely nude for this session, you can wear whatever you want to wear.  You could even make it a couple's session!

The cost of the session will be $650 (plus tax), which is due when the session is booked.

Follow our blog (blue button at the bottom) to get immediate updates when we release more information about the beach shoots as well as new blogs.

You can find us on Facebook as well as our website.

Stefanie's Black & White Boudoir Session | Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Before & AfterSome of our clients manage to make their way into our heart, where they will always have a place.  Stefanie has touched us in a way that will will never forget.  I'll let her tell the story:

Dear Jen and Max,

I can’t thank you enough for my amazing experience with you guys through Breathless Boudoir.  I had only learned about the concept of boudoir photography a few months ago, and to be honest the whole idea was foreign to me.  I had dance recital and senior portraits taken of me, but those were years ago; I’d never thought to put myself “out there” in such a detailed fashion.

When you grow up associated with being “too gangly-legged” to take hip-hop class and “too skinny” to be anything but anorexic, you develop a less than stellar self-image.  And shopping?  Forget about it!  Nothing fits quite right – how’re you supposed to feel confident when clothes hang all over you?  I know, I know *skinny girl problems* right?   Yoga has helped me to appreciate, rather than be envious, of gorgeous bodies, but it’s still a huge blow to the ego when you try on the latest pieces and leave without buying anything because you feel just plain ridiculous.

My role model is Audrey Hepburn and she made skinny not only beautiful, but downright sexy.  These days, you don’t see anyone with less than a D cup in any of the Victoria’s Secret magazines.  You’d be hard pressed to find a “sexy” model with hips so bony that they could take out a granite counter top!

That being said, I was a bit terrified of putting myself out there in all my “skinny glory”.  But I had to do something for my 25th birthday to boost my confidence.  You guys were so open and easy to talk to that by the time my hair and make-up were done, I wasn’t worried about my inability to be photogenic – heck, I was ready for my close up!  You made me feel confident that you’d find the angles that were uniquely flattering for my body.  From assuming the position yourselves, to asking me to make the most obnoxious laugh ever just to capture the natural laugh that was sure to follow, you guided me to be seductive, and dare I say it, beautiful.

The shoot itself was unbelievably fun, but I was absolutely blown away when we sat down to view what you had captured.  I didn’t see an uber-self-conscious skinny girl, I suddenly saw the confident 25 year old that I want to be.  So what if I don’t look like a Victoria’s Secret modelthey don’t look like me!  I couldn’t believe how amazing you made me look… It just goes to show you why Audrey insisted on always having Bob Willoughby as her photographer - no matter how insecure you are, when you’re in the hands of talented photographers such as yourselves, the results are nothing short of awe-inspiring.

I can’t wait to have my pictures - the confidence this shoot gave me is beyond priceless.  This was only going to be a “happy birthday to me”, but after this experience, I want to do a session every year just to have fun!  You guys are truly AWESOME and I can’t wait to work with you again! With SO much gratitude,

Stefanie

 

Whew.... every time I read that it makes me tear up.  And I've already read it 4 or 5 times.  Her testimonial is a great reminder to Max and I about why we do what we do, and what we started out with boudoir photography to do. Allowing a woman to see herself without seeing what she perceives as flaws first is the greatest gift we can give.  What we do is so incredibly fulfilling to us that we owe Stefanie just as much thanks as she has given us, if not more.  Our clients make our lives wonderful, and for that we are eternally grateful!

I shall stall no longer, Stefanie's photos must be seen!  For her album, she did something we haven't done before... all black & white!  I just love how it came out!  It's classic and timeless, just like the look she was going for.

Fishnet bodysuit and a white sheet... oh my!

Charmaine's boudoir session took place in our Baton Rouge studio.  She was a riot to work with!  We had so much fun for her session I never wanted it to end!  She is a beautiful woman with a beautiful heart and lovely curves.  She brought some great outfits including a fishnet bodysuit (take note ladies!) a loose purple blouse and a sheet.  Wait... that last one doesn't quite count as an outfit unless you're an ancient Roman.  Nonetheless wearing nothing but a white sheet makes a GORGEOUS set of photos for boudoir!  She did some implied nude as well as nude photos and I don't think I could be any more in love with them! before and after boudoir transformation  ©2013 Breathless Boudoir©2013 Breathless Boudoir©2013 Breathless Boudoir  ©2013 Breathless Boudoir ©2013 Breathless Boudoir ©2013 Breathless Boudoir©2013 Breathless Boudoir
