Renee – Celebrate You – Vero Beach Boudoir Photography
Renee contacted me to do a “Celebrate You” session as a Christmas present for her hubby. I think she was hesitant at first with what to expect; as most women are. We did our “consult” to go over what she was looking for in the different looks. I had the ever fabulous Jo’Ah May of Jo’Ah Artistry there to help make her looks a reality. One of the main things I tell all of my clients is that creating a pinterest board will really help me to get a feel for what they like and styles. It’s a wonderful tool that really does make a difference. I don’t use it to “replicate” poses or anything like that. I use it to see what a client is drawn too. It could be that they are pinning a lot of outdoor shots, or all black and whites, or a lot of tight cropped shots. The things people pin tell me ALOT about their personal style.
For Renee’s shoot – I decided to try something a little different. Since we were shooting close to the Christmas holiday – I decided to throw in some holiday lights to the mix. Not in a traditional/tree kind of sense. More as a background lighting. It was something I had never done in a session before – but we just LOVED how it turned out!
I like to always include a before/after image to show clients what a difference professional hair & makeup make. Although, Renee is gorgeous both ways! 😉 Renee did some glamorous shots outdoors using the beautiful Florida backdrop that she has in her own backyard!Renee finished up with some AMAZING boudoir images. The black she wore just popped & her blue eyes lit up with the dark, cat eye that Jo’Ah did for her.I always try to include a testimonial from my clients in their own words so other women can get a feel for how women feel after a “Celebrate You” session. Here is what Renee had to say about her shoot:
“If I had to sum up my shoot with you in two words in would be Amazing Experience! I had never really heard of or seen Boudoir photos until recently at a bridal show with my sister. I was looking at the photos and said I wish I could do something like this, and my sister’s best friend replied, “So do it!” That day I came home and started looking into Boudoir photos. I decided I was going to do it, BUT I was really nervous because I am usually pretty shy. I came across several photographers in my area and your name kept coming up, after looking at the website and your blog, I made the call to you. From the first time we spoke, I felt comfortable with you and knew if I was going to do this, I was doing it with Dawn V Gilmore.
The day of my shoot was perfect. I felt great the whole time and had lots of fun. It was like playing dress-up with my own photographer and hair and makeup artist. I loved how she tried new looks on me that I wouldn’t normally do myself, and your ideas for the shoot were lots of fun. The pictures were AMAZING and I could not believe they were of me. I gave my photos to my husband as a gift, he loves them and says it the best gift he ever received!”
