Charlottesville Fine Art Photography

Picking up where we left off last week... ©2014 Breathless Boudoir | Jen & Max Trombly

This was our "home" for the night, tents around a fire under the Milky Way.  What more could I ask for?  My heart was content.  Had I known that things would only get better in the morning, I may have exploded as soon as the Milky Way showed up to our camp.  Not even kidding, spontaneous combustion on the spot.  But alas, the next morning was mind blowing.

We woke up at the crack of dawn.  No, that's not even true.  We woke up BEFORE the crack of dawn to be sure that we were up in time for when the sun awoke from it's slumber.  If you know me at all, you know I'm not a morning person.  At. All. For some strange reason, just like I'm able to hang over a cliff with my camera in my hands, I'm also able to bounce out of bed (or in this case my tent) at ridiculous hours when there's photos to be made.  Give me fog in a field and a beautiful woman to photograph and I'm awake!  And that's exactly what I had to work with.

Like I mentioned last week, Max and I will be officially expanding Breathless Boudoir to Charlottesville, Virginia in April.  We're booking Virginia boudoir sessions now.  Our studio will be based in Charlottesville and we'll be traveling to the surrounding areas including Arlington, Richmond, Roanoke, and Washington, D.C. frequently.  When we do sessions in those areas they will take place in boutique hotels as well as in client's homes.  We're looking forward to doing more outdoor fine art photography sessions like this one as well!

Don't worry Louisiana, we still have session available before we leave, AND we'll be back in June!  We're not going to leave you guys hanging!

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.

An amazing boudoir session with Emily!

Before and after makeover transformation©2013 Breathless BoudoirThis is Emily.  She is an absolutely amazing person and probably one of my favorite people I've ever met.  She's a full time mom to her adorable little girl, Emma.  Sometimes being a mom can take over a woman's time leaving no time for herself.  Emily came to us for her 30th birthday.  She wanted to feel beautiful again, and she wanted to scratch off a boudoir photo shoot from her bucket list.  She also wanted to give her husband an album as a gift, so it was a win win win situation. Here's what Emily had to say about her session,

Jen and Max,

I just wanted to say to both of you again how much FUN I had today, and how much I appreciate your professionalism, attention to detail and most of all your talent. Your work truly does speak for itself, and I noted that when I first came across your website. I felt amazing today-not just the way I looked in the photos, but the way I felt alive and beautiful and confident on the inside. That is a priceless feeling that I won't soon forget.  I can't wait to see the book and give it to my husband. What a shocker of a gift!!! Thank you both from the bottom of my heart for an amazing experience, and I am totally sending my mom to you guys ;)

P.S. Apparently I was unofficially the "least likely" of any of my girlfriends to do a boudoir session, as my reactions have been mostly "what? YOU??" hahaha. I made them all promise to call you guys if they decided to do a session!

Leah's Boudoir Session | Baton Rouge, LA

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

Couple's Boudoir Session | Baton Rouge, LA

Mindy & Justin's couple's boudoir session is one that will go down in the history books for Max and I.  Mindy has done a boudoir session with us before (view HERE), so we already knew how much we LOVED having her as a client.  When she messaged us to book ANOTHER session, we were excited.  We were THROUGH THE ROOF with excitement to do a couple's session with her and her husband!!!  We knew it was going to be awesome, but there was no way for us to really know just how awesome it was going to be.  It was our first time meeting Justin, who just so happens to be a quite handsome guy, not to mention very down to earth.  The 4 of us meshed well immediately as if we had been friends since birth.  While Mindy was being pampered in hair and makeup, we all chatted.  I knew Max and I were in for it as they were getting dressed in their first outfit,  The way he was helping her with her clothes was just heart warming, it was something he said... just so sweet.  That was just the start of it.  When we started photographing them we were enamored by their love for each other.  I kid you not when I say Max and I BOTH teared up at one particular shot (the one of them smiling at each other, she's over him). The session, the photos, and the experience were all just incredible.  And that's not even mentioning how much THEY enjoyed the session!!!  As parents of an adorable little boy, Dax, it's easy for them to overlook the simple things that made them fall in love with each other in the first place.  We gave them the chance to let life slow down enough so that they can be consumed in each other's gazes, and to breathe each other's breath.  We gave them a tangible representation of their love for each other.  (shucks... there I go again, pass the Kleenex please).  It was a really beautiful experience and Max and I are so honored to be able to do something like this as our career.  It's the most fulfilling life I can possibly imagine.  Helping women love themselves and showing couples their love for each other..... man.  It just doesn't get any better than this!!!!

And now, the photos from Mindy & Justin's couple's session.  These images are from the design of their Fine Art Book.

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...
