I met these two in August at Ashley’s photography workshop. I styled Ashley’s shoot (have you see it on ELD yet?!), and was able to chat with Annmarie & Jess at dinner that night. They are SO MUCH FUN!!! They are from Massachusetts and we joked about “y’all” and “sweet tea” and a few other sweet, southern things:) These two have been doing BIG things, and have even BIGGER things in store for the coming months!!! I was truly honored when they asked me to be involved in their fun project….
Jess and Annmarie started hosting Boudoirathon’s last winter and they have been a HUGE hit!!
These two have the BEST personalities, so they make the entire process FUN and LIGHTHEARTED and GIRLY!! Boudoir photography is flirty and CLASSY. It is a style of photography meant to remind you that you are BEAUTIFUL and your beauty should be EMBRACED.
To be honest, I’ve always struggled with body image… I’m only 5’2″ and I have ALWAYS wanted to be taller… I would wish for longer legs, prettier hair, a more defined body, the list goes on and on. I’m “that girl” who looks in my closet FULL of clothes and can’t find a single thing to wear because “this doesn’t fit right” or “I wish it looked like this”. I love that Boudoir photography allows you to embrace every single imperfection … it’s about having confidence, having fun and being YOU… flaws and all!!
I’m happy to be working on a special project with these two ladies!! It’s very different from my “norm” and I am SO excited to challenge myself creatively. I also LOVE the idea of giving my sweet brides inspiration to feel beautiful and confident in their own skin!! We’ll be collaborating with Paisley and Jade at their studio in Richmond on November 18… Here’s just a peek at what’s up our sleeves…
So fun, right?! We want it to be very carefree & relaxed… lots of pink, tulle, and girly details! But we need YOUR help to bring this pretty to life!!!:)
– We’re looking for 2 models; if interested, please email me a few recent photos of yourself & tell me a bit about you! Ideally, we’d love to have a couple and a single girl (you don’t have to be single, but your boo won’t be with you in the shots!) And the best part? My sweet friend Katherine is designing something custom just for the project!!!! All these sketches you see are her designs!!!
– You must be available all day!! Hair/makeup, attire and yummy snacks will be provided.
– You will receive a gallery of the images as a thank you!!:)
– You will be wearing flirty, feminine attire… we need you to be VERY comfortable with these images being public!! They are going to be very tasteful images, but more revealing then the average styled shoot. These images will be posted on the contributors blogs/website & submitted for publication on a national blog… we need you to be 110% comfortable with that!!!
Please email me if you have questions!! If you’re available November 18, email me a few recent pictures & tell me more about you!!:) firstname.lastname@example.org
