Mrs. D is coming up on celebrating her and her husband's 16th wedding anniversary, and she wanted to do something special for him. It turns out that each year they trade off on who gets to plan their anniversary, along with gifts, etc. What a great idea! This year is her year, and she's always wanted to do something like this, and now was the perfect time!
At her consult, she revealed to me that her husband loves golf, so of course we had to incorporate that into some of her images! She kept saying that she wants to lose those last 10 pounds, but I assured her it wasn't necessary, as it's all about posing and wardrobe anyway! That put her at ease a little more, she ended up choosing the middle Passionate Collection, which included professional hair & makeup by Kate Tuma, mimosas, a cheese & crackers platter, and a $50 gift card to Tres Chic Lingerie.
At Tres Chic Lingerie, I arrived ahead of her so that I could hand pick some items in her size, and have everything all ready for her to try on when she got there. She had lots to choose from, and even when she was skeptical of some pieces, she was a trooper and tried them anyways. Her favorite was a full lacy, pink dress that came alive when she put it on! She chose a bright pink and black corset as well, and we paired it with the Studio black lace robe. The raspberry teddy and vibrant blue teddy popped against her tan skin and ombre hair. She also loved playing with the Studio Closet's light pink fur shawl.
I loved working with her curves and finding her best angles that flattered her body type. I kept showing her the back of my camera, and she loved what we were capturing. I know her husband will be completely shocked and be a happy camper when he receives his album!
At her Viewing & Ordering Session, she kept cursing in disbelief that who she was seeing on the screen was really her. She was so excited she kept hitting my leg and saying, 'No way!' It was a wonderful moment! She upgraded to the 8x8 Classic album and chose the black leather along with the Metal Inlay of her favorite image. She added an additional 23 images to her album, and we spent lots of time designing her album right there, so that she would know exactly how it would look. She loved the process, and can't wait to surprise him! She will most likely be bringing him in to view the images himself, and have him pick something for Christmas, Valentine's Day, Father's Day....the one gift that keeps on giving!
Ms. V's Sensual Session
Ms. V came to see me because she's getting married, and wanted something special to give her future husband on their wedding day. She chose my middle Boudoir Collection, complete with professional hair & makeup done by Kate Tuma, mimosas, a fruit & cheese platter, a $50 gift card to Tres Chic, and 15 images in the Classic 6x6 Album. We chatted about his and her favorite features, and how she envisioned being photographed. She was wanting sultry and sexy, and I know we nailed it!
We shopped for her outfits at Tres Chic Lingerie, located in downtown Redmond, where she got personal attention from the owner Heather, and I. She chose a gorgeous teal corset that accented her curves, a coral draped top, and a black, lacy one-piece teddy. She brought along her man's favorite work shirt, and used the white netted dress from the Studio Closet, along with some pairs of heels.
She was stunned at the gorgeous job that Kate Tuma did on her hair and makeup, and wished she could be pampered like this every day! We started her on the bed against the windows, and moved throughout the space as her session progressed. She was nervous at first, but soon relaxed once I started showing her the stunning images we were capturing!
At her reveal session she came alone, as this is going to be a surprise for the future husband. She loved seeing what we created on the slideshow set to music, and quickly picked her favorites. We created the album design together, and she added some extras, as she loved so many!
When her album came in and she saw it for the first time, she was in shock. She loved seeing them in print! She chose to upgrade to the 8x8 Classic Album in the Platinum Chrome, added an additional 12 images, and chose the Matching His & Her's Mini Accordion Albums, in the Black Silk and Ruby Silk. These are great for him to take along on those business trips, and for her to show off her gorgeous self to her girlfriends!
She loved her experience, and can't wait for him to open his surprise. I think it will be a moment he will never forget!
Ms. H's Haute Session
Ms. H met me at the Central Oregon Wedding & Event Show, last January. We quickly got her on the calendar for her complimentary consultation, and go over exactly what she was looking for, and to show her the gorgeous products and fun experience we offer at Lush Intimate Studios.
She is getting married in September, and was looking for that perfect wedding gift that all women dream of giving their new husbands. She was getting very excited as I explained the process. She was looking for a Sexy, Revealing, See-Through, Vintage type of session. She explained that her fiancé was a pilot, so of course his uniform had to come into play as well.
She chose the middle Boudoir Collection, Passionate, which includes professional hair & makeup by the #1 artist in Oregon, Kate Tuma, mimosas, a fresh fruit & cheese platter, the coveted $50 gift card to Tres Chic Lingerie (where I personally help you shop!), and 15 images in the Boutique Box.
We met at Tres Chic a week or so before her session, to choose the outfits that would compliment the look she was going for. She chose a black lace-up back corset, a light blue & black matching bra, panty, stocking and garter belt set, a dark blue draped top, and a raspberry teddy that complimented her pale skin and dark hair beautifully. She also used the popular white and black lacy robes from the Studio Closet, as well as some fun heels! She brought along his pilot jacket and hat, as well as his work tie. He'll never be able to look at those clothing items the same again without thinking of her!
We were planning on shooting both indoor and outdoor, but due to the extreme temperatures, we opted to stay in the cool air conditioning. The bed against the windows is such a popular look, and flatters women of all sizes, so we started there to make her more comfortable. She quickly learned about my Boudoir Booty Camp as we moved around the studio space and began poses that required some extra work to hold, but were well worth the effort! She was so much fun to work with, and it was fun finding her best angles!
She brought her fiancé along with her to her Viewing & Ordering Session, where he got to experience seeing the images for the first time on the slideshow set to music. Wine was poured, and he loved being able to choose his favorites, which was most of them! They went with their 15 favorites in the Boutique Box, and chose to purchase the Digital Files as well. They are already looking forward to creating some custom Artwork for their bedroom around Christmas time. This is definitely the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year!
I loved capturing her classic look, and creating the best portraits she's had of herself. An absolute beauty for sure!
Mrs. C's Classic Session
Mrs. C met me at the Central Oregon Wedding & Event Show, and purchased my Valentine's Day Mini Session. She received the complimentary consultation where we discussed how she would like to be photographed, along with professional hair & makeup by Kate Tuma, a mimosa, and the matching His & Her's Mini Accordion Albums. It was a quick 30 minute session, but we captured many looks within that time, as she wanted this to be an amazing 1 year anniversary gift to her husband!
She brought in some bright and colorful matching lingerie sets, as well as a silky gray robe, and her veil. She wanted to play around with her veil, as these were to incorporate her wedding into them.
At her Viewing & Ordering Session, she ended up purchasing the 8x8 Classic Album, and she's so glad she did! She gave her husband the Mini Accordion Albums (one in the Platinum Chrome, and the other in the Ruby Silk) as a teaser on Valentine's day, and he was thrilled! I can't wait to hear how he reacts to the gorgeous album she picked up! She went with the Slate Gray Leather, along with the Metal Inlay of her favorite image on the front.
She has such a soft personality, and it was fun to bring out the sultry side of her!
Ms. F's Fun Session
Ms. F met me at the Central Oregon Wedding & Event Show at the Riverhouse in Bend, last January. She took advantage of my Valentine's Mini Sessions, and we scheduled her complimentary consultation. Once she came to the studio located in downtown Redmond, she was able to see exactly where her images would be captured, and it put her at ease. She loved the options of the Studio Closet (fur shawls, lacy robes, over 30 pairs of heels, jewelry, etc.), and the products offered to her.
Her Mini Session came with professional hair & makeup done by Kate Tuma Artistry, a 30 minute in-studio session, a mimosa, the matching His & Hers Mini Accordion Albums, and the Viewing & Ordering Session. She loved being pampered for the afternoon, and thoroughly enjoyed her experience with Lush Intimate Studios.
She brought along her favorite outfits, along with a fun scarf to add texture, as well as her man's ski's and hat! He will never be able to ski again without thinking of her!
She was so easy to photograph, and I felt like I could have captured her all day long due to her looking gorgeous at every angle! At her Viewing & Ordering Session she brought along her man, and he was in love with the images we captured, and his favorites were of course with the ski's! They ended up purchasing a 3 piece Metal Artwork Collage to go in their closet, as they still have young kids at home.
I love it when clients bring their spouse to the Viewing & Ordering Sessions, as you get to see exactly what they love, and make them even happier! It's just so much fun!
