11 Tips For Your Boudoir Beauty Photo Shoot – Alberta Photographer


11 Tips For Your Boudoir Beauty Photo Shoot

First of all…why would anyone want to have a boudoir beauty photo shoot?!? Well…they are so much fun to start off and they can make you see and feel the beauty that you may not take the time to recognize.

I’m a Mom of 3 little ones and I often throw a toque on my head to keep my bad hair days hidden from the public. Anyone else do this? I know toques are the trend but honestly, I’m so thankful that they are! With that being said, I am a really busy lady with my business, my family, my friends (I love my coffee time with my friends) and a day of hair and makeup and pampering (especially with my girlfriends) can’t be beat!

If you do plan on giving this special gift to yourself or someone else, here are 11 tips to help prep for your boudoir beauty photo shoot:

1. sleep…it’s crazy what a good night’s sleep can do for us!
2. moisturize. It always gets forgotten in my life so here’s a friendly reminder in case you’re like me!
3. bring at least 5 wardrobe options including accessories. I always suggest a variety of items from baggy sexy sweaters to delicate pretty lingerie.
4. manicure and pedicure…believe it or not, your hands and feet often get captured in the photo.
5. come early…relax and enjoy the whole experience.
6. bring your own music…this is your time and bring whatever music will help you enjoy it most!
7. show up for a good time…have fun!
8. show up and I’ll do the rest…taking beautiful photographs is up to the photographer.
9. no new haircuts or new colours the day before…just in case.
10. no quick ‘tans’ right before the shoot. Your natural skin tone will be beautiful.
11. no negative words once on the set…this is a positive moment. You need to enjoy the experience and feel awesome!

You can find more of my work HERE.

You can check out my Pinterest page for ideas and inspiration of Photos Boudoir Beauty. On this page you will find a variety of styles from sexy lace to big sweaters, ideas for make-up and ideas for hair. You will also find poses of all types. It’s a good idea to start your own Pinterest board of what you like and what you want to achieve at your shoot. Make sure to make this board private…unless you want everyone to see what you are pinning!! It will help to make this experience amazing for you!

I am also thrilled to be shooting 2 full days of Boudoir Beauty Photo Shoots in my new studio! Check out the info:

Central Alberta Photographer { Janelle Awe Photography } | Jordan’s Rustic Vintage Shoot

I’ve wanted to create a rustic vintage shoot for quite a while now and last night I finally had the opportunity. I was able to capture one of my favorite subjects, my niece Jordan. We headed out to the farm and enjoyed an amazing evening.

Thanks to the Pollitt Ranch for providing the gorgeous backdrop and the horse…although it was a bit more challenging using this second subject, it was so much fun and everything I had hoped to create with the vision I had for this shoot!

AND…

I am really excited to announce that I’ll be at the Team Roping Canada Finals held in Calgary this year September 26th to the 28th. I will have a booth there and will have a mini session event held that weekend. If you are interested in booking during the finals, please message me at janelle@janelleawephotography.com or through my site at www.janelleawephotography.com. It’s the perfect time to get your fall photos done!

Central Alberta Photographer { Janelle Awe Photography } | First Annual Bowden Photographers Retreat

How did the First Annual Bowden Photographers Retreat begin?…

Well let’s start here…I have been so blessed to do what I do.

This ‘job’ of being a photographer has allowed me stay at home with my sweet babes, travel to amazing places with my family (work+vacation=heck yah!), be artistic on shoots, capture and meet truly enjoyable clients, spend some ‘me’ time in my office (very important to keep a mama sane with 3 littles), and be inspired by other photographers.

Since this start ~ I have gained friendships that include speaking on the phone at least 4 times a day or emails and texts and Facebook messages regularly. I have also met and been inspired by so many others with similar interests as my own.

So I made a plan…
myself + old friends + unknown friends + wine + sleeping bags + cameras + amazing makeup artist = reunion + new friends + tonnes of laughs + new knowledge = First Annual Bowden Photographers Retreat

Thank you to all of the wonderful ladies who made it to my little town of Bowden for what I hope becomes an annual event.
I am so blessed to do what I do…
