Personalizing Your Boudoir Photo Shoot with Meaningful Items - Chicago Boudoir Photography
Hi there! I am loving this amazing summer weather we’re having here in Chicago. The winters here are terrible (not going to lie), but I absolutely love summers in Chicago! I hope that you’re having a great summer!
I wanted to share a really fun session I had recently at the Chicago Boudoir Photography studio. I always encourage my clients to bring something to personalize their boudoir photo shoot, such as a mug, a meaningful piece of jewelry, a sports jersey or their wedding shoes. Bringing a personal item makes your boudoir shoot all the more meaningful for you and/or your significant other. It can add color, meaning and spice to your boudoir pictures!
This gorgeous woman brought in gear from her husband’s race car driving hobby! He is really involved with racing and even customizes cars to be race ready. She brought his racing helmet and heavy leather jacket. It was so fun to incorporate these pieces into her shoot! I love how the blue visor on the helmet provides a fun pop of color in her photos.
Check out these fun boudoir images from her shoot:
Here’s my very favorite photo from her shoot:
Here’s the same photo, but in color. I often prefer black and white photos, but I’ve noticed that my clients usually choose color - which do you prefer?
