This was my first time planning and executing a styled shoot, which we held at our photography studio in Guelph. I wanted to employ a simple, yet elegant and classy approach to boudoir - one that spoke to how I want to define my style of portraiture.
The colour pallet was centered around three colours: blue, green, and yellow which would be combined with white. I think having a clear vision for colour is one of the foundations of any styled shoot. Building up from there, this styled shoot had 3 main components: florals, wardrobe, and food.
The florals were done by Kathy from Flowerz Design, a talented designer based here in Guelph. The crown and the bouquet stayed consisted with the pre-defined colour pallet, which allowed for a muted, natural feel for the shoot.
bodysuits were purchased from Forever21, and the robe was actually a beach cover-up from Zaful. The sage green lace of the first worked perfectly with the florals, and a nude colour can go with almost any pallet.
The food - blueberries, and a lemon tart contrasted each other beautifully and matched up perfectly with the greens.
I cannot speak highly enough about the team that was put together for this shoot. Eni, our beautiful, talented, and fun model suited the shoot perfectly. This stunning makeup was done by Meghan Barbour, and the hair was styled by the talented Emma Porcellato. Heather from Red Bicycle Paper co. was gracious enough to lend us an invitation suite for some flat lays, and Laura from Go Fluff Yourself Designs let us use some pillows for decor.
As a boudoir photographer, clients often times prefer not to have their intimate photos shared on social media. Styled shoots are a creatively liberating way to express yourself as an artist, and to meet other creatives within your industry. I’m so happy to share these beautiful photos that our team worked hard to create.
