You’d be surprised at the number of clients that come to me that tell me that they don’t own lingerie (aside from your basic bra and panty sets for everyday use) and have no clue what to wear for their shoot. It could be for a variety of reasons. Some women don’t want to fuss with straps and hooks. Some women feel it’s pointless because the lingerie is going to come off anyway. Then there are some women that just don’t feel comfortable in lingerie. They’re all perfectly valid reasons. When you’re starting from scratch, my first piece of advice is to choose pieces that you can feel comfortable in. Boudoir Wardrobe Inspiration: A Cozy Cardigan & Knee-high Socks I love this set because not only is it super-cute, but it’s something that almost anyone can feel comfortable in. If your midsection is an area of concern, a cardigan is the perfect way to hide it. Additionally, the cardigan and socks combo give your hands an opportunity to not be idle during your shoot. Buttoning and unbuttoning the sweater, shrugging the sweater off your shoulders, pulling the socks on, or pulling the socks off. It all makes for a great […]
It’s April and it’s snowing outside. Not just a little snow either. We have a good 5 inches of snow in our backyard right now. So, to warm things up a bit (okay, A LOT), I’m going to finally share the images from Miss D’s boudoir shoot that was photographed here in my private Saratoga boudoir photography studio! Sometimes, the toughest part of planning your boudoir photo shoot is trying to figure out what to wear for your shoot. Here at Cheeky, I offer session options that allow for 4-8 different wardrobe changes. This gives my clients the room for a wide variety of looks in their final images. So, to give you a bit of inspiration, over the next 5 days, I’ll be featuring a little bit of Miss D’s boudoir shoot and the different looks she chose for her session! Boudoir Wardrobe Inspiration: Black Bra & Panty Set For her first set, Miss D wore a lovely black longline bra and panty set by Blush Lingerie. Because of its simplicity, I wanted to create images that evoked a sense of mystery and freedom. To achieve this, I photographer her in almost a voyeuristic fashion. Throughout this set, I […]
The best part of my job is meeting a great variety of women from all over the New York Capital Region in various stages of their lives. From women just gaining their independence, to women who are embarking on a shared life with their partner, to women who are finding themselves again after 50. The stories that are shared in my boudoir photography studio really build a connection between my clients and myself that help me bring out their personalities in their photographs.
This is Miss L, 47-year-old mother, wife, and adventure seeker. When she first contacted me, she was concerned and wanted to make sure her photoshoot was age-appropriate. My reaction? Sensuality is appropriate for ANY age! I told her that unless there were any physical limitations, I could photograph her just as I would someone that was 27. Needless to say, I think she absolutely NAILED her boudoir shoot.
There really is no one way to do bridal boudoir, nor should there be as everyone's style is unique to them. I have brides that like to go all out with white or off-white lingerie with jeweled "Bride" embellishments. I also have brides that like to keep their wardrobe fun and flirty, catered to their grooms' tastes. THEN I have brides that like to really turn up the heat with super-sexy lingerie choices. Whatever your personality, here at Cheeky Boudoir, we can create a gift for your groom that he'll never forget.
Nothing excites me more than when my clients walk through my doors with a Torso bag (or 2!) in their hands. For me, it's a feeling akin to Christmas morning as a child. Luckily for me, this kind of holiday happens on a regular basis.
I am so so so EXCITED to share this bridal boudoir photo shoot with you today! Because I don't do a lot of advertising in the traditional sense for my Saratoga boudoir studio, word of mouth referrals are typically how my clients find me. A friend of Miss C's came in a couple years ago for her own bridal boudoir shoot, so when it came time for Miss C to tie the knot, she knew it would be the perfect gift for her groom.
It's that time of the year again! Last Fall, we had a record-breaking season for super-sexy Holiday gifts. If you've been thinking about giving a super-sexy boudoir gift to your sweetheart this Holiday season, your photoshoot must take place by Sunday, November 22nd!
At Cheeky Boudoir, we try our best to make your experience with us as comfortable as possible. Everyday, we work with moms, wives, sisters, and girls next door… not models. The combination of Cheeky Boudoir's fantastic stylists and my professional direction will help you bring out your inner supermodel! Whether you want a more natural look or a look that's ultra-glam, we know how to enhance your best features for boudoir images that will last a lifetime.
Often, I have clients that book their boudoir session because they’re planning to give their images to someone as a gift. Recently, however, we’ve had an influx of women that are doing it for themselves as a personal reward… like Miss J! When asked why she had booked her boudoir photoshoot in our Saratoga boudoir photography studio, here’s what Miss J told me, “A personal reward for getting myself back into the gym and back into a healthy lifestyle. I am using it for a goal and to help me remind myself why being healthy is beautiful!” Miss J came into the boudoir studio and we had a BLAST with her photoshoot! She was worried that she may laugh too much during her shoot, which is a concern a lot of my boudoir clients have. However, with a little trust, I was able to also capture that super sultry look that was hiding within. It’s truly a joy for me when I am able to show my clients that they’ve got that “umph” inside them. In fact, the day after her photoshoot, Miss J sent me this fantastic message: Miss J loved her images so much that she had no […]
