Today I’m featuring Miss Stephanie, a stunning woman I photographed few months ago. This boudoir session was particularly special, as this is an engagement present to her fiancé. She wanted to give this boudoir album to him on the morning of their wedding day.
As you can see, Miss Stephanie is incredibly beautiful, but looks aren’t the only thing she’s got going on. She’s graduating from medical school this month AND she’s also training for an Ironman in September. Between swim, bike and run workouts, she really enjoys various yoga classes. A woman of many interests!
Even though she was a little nervous before our shoot (who wouldn’t be?), Miss Stephanie was able to relax pretty quickly and we got some gorgeous shots. She brought 2 different outfits for the session and each looked amazing on her. She brought a black lace with cream-colored detail panty and bra set. She borrowed some jewelry for this and she looked amazing. She wore this in bed with white sheets for a luxurious, class look. Since this was an engagement gift, she brought a white set. The white, sheer robe was really great for a few glowing outdoor photos. She even had a veil and cowgirl boots for props. With a couple of props and various settings/positions, there was plenty of variety.
Since we had such an amazing shoot, I asked Miss Stephanie to share a little bit of advice for others who may want to have a boudoir session in the future. Here’s what she had to say:
“Keeps pictures of ideas that you really like! I wanted a sexy, elegant and timeless vibe. I wanted to look confident and show my body. Shelley helped me articulate what I wanted, we both put together some ideas on Pinterest and I was absolutely able to get the look that I wanted.” That’s definitely solid advice!
I’m so thrilled she did this not only because her fiancé will receive a beautiful album of his new bride, but more importantly, as Miss Stephanie stated to me when she booked this session, she is celebrating her life, she is celebrating where she is in life and as she is getting ready for her big day with her partner, she wanted to have something for herself that she can reflect on. Life should be celebrated in many ways and I couldn’t be happier for her.
