It's that time of year again! Instead of buying your significant other a generic gift like roses or a box of chocolates (well...maybe still get those hehe) get them something way more special and creative...sexy boudoir photos! I'm super excited to be offering these sessions this year..and I had a blast doing this promotional set with my good friend Tara Stokes aka Coco.
Coco is a friend of mine at work, amazing hair AND makeup artist and apparently a great model! I went to her Logan Square apartment early, Tuesday morning. She lives on the third floor and her building is surrounded by much shorter ones (which gave us be-a-utiful morning light). It was an overcast, snowy morning so the light was soft and diffused...perfect for what we were setting out to do.
She did her own makeup (which I think looks wonderful!) and we started to shoot... Giant eyelashes: check. Mac Rebel lipstick: check, check. Adorable black lacy bra and panties from Urban Outfitters. Slayer shirt. Enough said. Oh and those thigh-high socks. Check,
I brought a strobe and softbox for backup in case we needed that extra pop of light but I didn't end up needing it at all. We got lucky.
I'm really happy with how this set turned out. Coco was a natural at modeling and her tattoos and style were a huge part to the success of this shoot! I love the idea of really personalizing these types of shoot to the person, their own space and completely their style. I hope to get lots of takers on this promotion, I can't wait to shoot more of these!!! xo
