I’m beyond thrilled to share with you my recent session with Keely. While Keely could be a model, she’s a nurse from St. Louis. They say not all superheros wear capes, and in Keely’s case, she’s in scrubs working long hours caring for infants in the NICU. By the end of her shift, she may not be feeling so glamorous– which is why I’m so glad she could treat herself to a boudoir session with me! Working with Keely was so fun and I’m excited to share her different boudoir looks with you!
Prepping for the Session
Keely came to me so that she could gift herself some pampering and gorgeous photos– she also had the added bonus of a nice gift for her boyfriend. My friends from the Blowout Bar came to the studio to give Keely the star treatment of gorgeous curls and flawless makeup that highlight her beauty. And no boudoir session is complete without the wardrobe! There’s so much more than just lingerie to bring to a session (but we definitely have some sexy shots with lingerie, too!)
Comfy Meets Sexy
While lingerie is a great staple for boudoir photos, sessions are certainly not limited to only lingerie shots. This is where I love to get creative with my clients piece together sexy but cozy looks. I especially love topping the look off with a feminine touch. Keely opted for the relaxed, off the shoulder sweater in a neutral tone. A pair of cheeky, lacy panties in a seafoam and mint color make the perfect contrast to perfect this boudoir look. I love how the light drapes over her bare shoulders to complement her look.
Tried and True– Calvin Klein’s
I am a big believer of the classic, tried and true Calvin Klein lingerie. You just can’t go wrong with it. Even though it was really popular in the 90s, there’s a timeless quality with this casual look. Keely completed her Calvin look with a soft, grey t-shirt. While a t-shirt may seem very modest for a boudoir shoot, with the right posing and a sexy pair of Calvin Klein underwear, a t-shirt can actually work well! The simplicity of this outfit don’t distract from Keely’s beauty and I posed the photo so that we can see her gorgeous hair and makeup as well as her natural beauty.
Jeans & Lingerie
They say less is more but I’m loving how this shot turned out with jeans– one of my favorites of the different boudoir looks. The looks becomes more casual for sure but the jeans, also with neutral and matching bra and heels, shift the focus a bit. There’s definitely a bit more nuanced appeal and I love how the gaze goes to the details like Kaylee’s tattoos and gorgeous physique. And it’s key to have the jeans open so there isn’t any pinching but also so that the details of a nice lace panty can peak through.
Of course, you also can’t go wrong with lingerie in addition to your different boudoir looks.
