Palm Beach Boudoir Studio – Dianna
What does one do when you have an unexpected day off in our boudoir studio and the kids/hubby are back at school and work after the holiday break???? Call up one of your amazing Facebook friends who happens to be a makeup artist and see if she is free to play! Well, of course that is exactly what I did! Fortunately for me, Dianna was available. It was like the stars aligned. Happy New Year 2016!!!
I recently made a new purchase of an Art Lens for my 2016 rebranding to Women’s Portrait Photography and this was the perfect way to try out the new lens and see how well it works for what I shoot. I also changed up the studio a bit too to add a new “black” wall as well as changing up the furniture for the glitter wall. I picked up a leather rolled arm bench which I thought would work out perfectly for this shoot with Dianna today too. It was truly a match made in heaven. I couldn’t have expected anything more & honestly was so freakin’ excited that I think I actually squealed a few times like a kid on Christmas morning while we were shooting. Dianna has amazing style & I just KNEW she would bring it when she came into the studio. I was not disappointed at all.
We started off the shoot with a few headshots to really get her warmed up in front of the camera. I always tell my business headshot clients to wear royal colors & Dianna’s royal blue shirt was PERFECT. Paired with a leather jacket – it took her headshot up a notch & really gave her a young, hip & edgy vibe. Perfect for a young millennial like her. Here are a few of our favorites from that part of the shoot.
This one is one of my ultimate favorites because Dianna just has “the look” in this shot. Seriously – she can stare right into your soul when you are photographing her. It’s divine!
The second set of images that we created were to go for the new lbd “Little Black Dress” package that I started offering January 1st in our Middletown DE boudoir studio! We can take a basic dress & add some jewelry along with one of our sets & totally give you the most beautifully sensual & sexy images. Nothing like rocking those curves in your lbd to bring in 2016. Oh – and of course, since Dianna is a makeup artist; a blingy “I Do Makeup” necklace was the perfect accesory for those photos. Check out her business “Wakeup and Makeup” because this girl has skills!
I think this is another one of my all time favorite images from Dianna’s session! Check out that necklace too. Yes, that is a blingy lipstick. So cute & of course, her Hello Kitty tattoo is pretty cool as well. Gotta love an inked girl. 🙂
To end our session we decided to move more into the realm of boudoir & have her rock a fur vest. Of course, to complete that touch of retro pin-up we added in some high waisted bottoms and layered some necklaces too. We switched it up between the bow headband, the boho chic rhinestone headpiece and of course, some good old fashioned hair blowing too. Typically at this point in a boudoir session, a client is pretty relaxed & really brings out their inner vixen. I would say that was TOTALLY the case with Dianna. These images are so freakin’ hot that they practically melt the screen. LOVE LOVE LOVE all of these. If you’ve got the curves, why not flaunt them!
I usually like to end my blog posts with a client testimonial because I feel that there is nothing better than hearing directly from my clients what it was like for them to be in front of the camera. Here is what Dianna had to say about her session.
Where do I start?! Dawn is superbly talented, funny, and fun to be around. She makes you feel at ease with yourself and your surroundings. She’s considerate of any worries or concerns you may have about how to look and/or pose, what to wear, body image, etc. She’s also very thorough and takes her time to get the right shots. She has a keen eye and amazing style. Her studio is gorgeous and inviting with many options to choose from for backgrounds, lighting and so on. Dawn is such a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with her again in the near future! Book her asap!!!!
