Bombshell for a Day - Miss K

How would you describe your overall boudoir experience?

Fun! So much fun! From the consultation to picking up my final photos, it felt like a visit with my friends.

 

List the outfits you brought and where you bought them

A suit jacket that was my fiancées. A green button down shirt that was the one my fiancé wore when he proposed. A Blue and Green Nightie- one of the few pieces that I bought for the shoot from the Vanity Fair Outlet Mall. A white tank that I already had. The necklace I wore in those shots in pure Lapis and unrefined silver that a friend brought back from her honeymoon in Egypt. Lingerie that was purchased at the Lion's Den. A green velvet dress that I have had for years and wore to a James Bond Casino Royale party a few years ago. After the consultation I realized I had a lot in my own closet that I could use.

Who did your hair and makeup? What were your thoughts on those vendors?          

Katie- she was awesome! So much fun to work with. She was engaging and did a great job with my hair and makeup. I'm hoping to see her again - I may have found a new stylist down here!

 

What kind of vibe were you going for? Do you think we pulled it off?

Hollywood Glam while toeing the line to boudoir. I think we did it perfectly.

 

Were you nervous about anything about the shoot beforehand? If so, what? Did you become more comfortable after the session started? If so, what helped to relax your nerves?

A little. Just the general “I don't have the right body for this” kind of thing nervousness. After my hair and makeup was done and we started shooting, I relaxed more and more. Sydney was great about checking in and making sure I was still okay.

 

What advice do you have for others getting their boudoir pictures taken?

Have fun, enjoy yourself, and don't think you have to go buy a new wardrobe. My fiancée was thrilled with my wardrobe choices. Especially the shirt he proposed in and the green velvet dress. He had never seen me in that dress, and it was fun to see his reaction when he realized what shirt I chose.

 

What was your reason for doing the boudoir session?

A gift for my fiancé, and ultimately myself. Our two year anniversary was last July, and our wedding was in September, so this was for both of those. This turned out to be a gift for myself. I never thought I could ever look like that.

 

What are some of your favorite pastimes or hobbies? What about skills?

I scrapbook, embroider, weave, and read. I also play the flute and saxophone and I am learning the hammered dulcimer. History is one of my favorite things- I spent summers after college at Lincoln’s New Salem in Petersburg, IL as a docent. I have also spent a considerable amount of time back stage at various community theaters as a costumer, dresser, makeup artist, and kid wrangler.

 

What was our favorite part of the session?

I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite part. The hair and makeup was awesome, the shooting was fun, and going through the photos was amazing.
