Good Monday to you all, this is Amy.
One of our favorite things about working at Seattle Boudoir is hearing stories about how a partner has reacted when viewing a client’s boudoir photos. This story is up there for the best response ever!
As a bit of a back story; Mr. L attended Ms. L’s session and preview meeting and was a part of choosing their favorite photos, therefore, he knew exactly which photos were ordered. Once Ms. L’s photos were completed, we reached out to her to schedule a time when they could both come by the studio to pick up her amazing photos. The twist… Mr. L was out of town and had to wait to see Ms. L’s photos! Ms. L decided to have some fun and created the best surprise ever…
A Boudoir photo scavenger hunt!
That’s right! How awesome of an idea is that? Don’t take my words for it. This is what Mr. L had to say about the experience:
Not sure if Ms. L told you the whole story but I was in Vegas for work when she picked the photos up. The suspense was killing me and her phone photos weren’t helping at all! Sunday I rode from San Francisco to Seattle on my motorcycle in the rain. I got home at 9PM at night and was exhausted to say the least. I went upstairs and found the first photo on my bed. The next 30 to 45 minutes were spent looking through my room, the closet, bathroom cabinets and spare bedroom. Each one I found made me grin like a kid on Christmas morning. I found them all but one and was going crazy looking for it. I checked the spare bedroom again and finally success!! It was by far the best scavenger hunt in my life. I love the photos and can’t say enough about the great experience we had.
Thanks again and I can’t wait for the next one!!!!”
Talk about an amazing surprise! I do believe Ms. L won the girlfriend of the year award! We just have to share some of her wonderful photos with the world to show what Mr. L was searching for around his home!
Thank you so much Mr. and Ms. L! It’s been a delight working with you both. We can’t wait to get you both back in the studio for the couples session you’ve been talking about!
The sassy Ms. W. visited our Seattle studio to create a lovely anniversary gift for her husband, but was really excited to have the experience be all about her. Having never done a boudoir session before, Ms. W. came into our studio prior to her photography session to have a consultation. During her consultation Ms. W. got a chance to chat with her onset stylist, the wonderful Kim, and go over the different outfit, theme, and overall style of her session.
When Ms. W. came in for her photography session the wonderful team at Milagros SpaSalon styled her makeup and hair to perfection. Her eyes just popped and her hair looked fabulous in all of the different sets used during her session. Her black outfit paired with pair of stockings and garters looked amazing on her!
Ms. W’s final outfit was minimal but looked great on her body. Her nude panty paired with a fabulous pair of heels is all that was needed to flaunt her body. The pop of color from her heels added such a nice contrast from her barely visible panty.
Ms. W. absolutely enjoyed her time here with us at the studio. Needless to say, her husband definitely enjoyed his surprise anniversary gift!
Ms. K scheduled a session with our boudoir studio to create a wonderful gift for her husband for their upcoming anniversary as well to celebrate her upcoming birthday. It was a double gift; an amazing experience for her and her husband got some pretty awesome pictures to boot! Ms. K created a sweet and romantic feel to the first part of her session. We adored her black teddy paired with a matching black lingerie set. Her necklace complimented her outfit perfectly. Since the majority of this outfit was shot on the bed, shoes were not a necessity. Don’t think we’d let her get away without some stockings!
The 2nd outfit Ms. K adorned combined her cowboy boots with her husband’s banjo. What a perfect prop to bring along to personalize her photographs! We of course had to add peanut shells on the floor to complete the look! She looks so sassy and fun in all of these photos. Ms. K took the image of her headshot and sent photos to her parents too! It goes to show that just because you’re having a boudoir session doesn’t limit the people in your life whom you can create a gift.
We had a great time working with Ms. K. We’ve suggested that Mr. K comes in with Ms. K for a couples shoot. How much fun would it be to see him playing his banjo in their couple’s session! Ms. K is an absolute doll and we love chatting with her whenever we get the chance.
We had an absolute blast working with Ms. L! Her fun and outgoing personality shined in her photos. Ms. L had a boudoir session with us so she could create a great gift for her traveling hubby. Ms. L’s husband is in the armed forces and is called out on a minutes notice to travel. She wanted to give him some photos that he could take with, so he could always be reminded of how much she loves him. They are both huge sports fanatics, so Ms. L was sure to include some photos of her in a t-shirt featuring his favorite baseball team.
Ms. L showed off her flirty personality in her cute lingerie set and flowery robe. We of course had to include a fun photograph highlighting her favorite animal… the flamingo!
Ms. L brought her hubby in for a surprise preview meeting. We pretended that she had never been to the studio before. Once it was time to view an “informational video” about our studio Mr. L realized the surprise… the video was all of the photos from his wife’s session! Needless to say he enjoyed the surprise! We can’t wait to have Ms. L back into the studio… perhaps this time with Mr. L? Time will only tell!
Ms. Z ‘s photos show that you can look amazing AND have fun during your boudoir session! Ms. Z decided to have a photography session in our Seattle studio because she resolved it was time to something for herself. A single mother who works full time taking care of others, Ms. Z decided now was the time to treat herself. Her white bra and panty set looked beautiful on her. We loved that she brought in bubbles to use as a prop… so much fun!
Ms. Z’s pink outfit is amazing. It showed off her body exquisitely. The different angles she posed during her session in the pink outfit highlighted Ms. Z very well.
The piece de resistance… her swim suit and scuba gear! We had a blast creating some sensual and fun photos for her in this outfit. It’s not often we get to have clients strike a pose in our tub and we loved that Ms. Z gave us the opportunity to do some photos lounging in the tub, flippers and all!
Ms. Z created a stunning calendar with the mix of photos she chose. We hope Ms. Z comes back to see us soon! Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to have her teach us how to scuba dive!
Ms. N contacted our studio in Seattle to have a session with us for two reasons. First, she wanted to create an unforgettable gift for her husband for their 10 year wedding anniversary. The second reason Ms. N contacted us is because having a boudoir session is something that has been on her bucket list!
Ms. N may have originally chosen our studio as a way to mark something off of her bucket list, but she quickly found, a boudoir session with us is all about the experience. She was pampered by all of our staff and our salon. The amazing hair and makeup artists at Milagros SalonSpa made her look glamorous. The outfits she brought in for her session were fantastic! Kim, our onset stylist for our sessions, was excited to see that Ms. N brought in one of Kim’s favorite outfit pieces… a ruffled pair of undies! Needless to say, they looked amazing on Ms. N!
Ms. N also brought in a fabulous leather jacket which she paired with her brightly colored lingerie set, a pair of stocking, and stellar heels (something Ms. N does not leave the house without!).
We also did a “White Out” set with Ms. N. This simple scene permitted Ms. N to be highlighted in a romantic and elegant way.
We’re very happy Ms. N chose our studio because we have a great time with her. We also know that her husband LOVED the gift he received on their anniversary date, but who wouldn’t? Ms. N is one gorgeous lady!
Ms. T had a session with our studio with the aim of finding her inner beauty once again. With a mix of amazing outfits paired with her bright, bubbly, and outgoing personality, Ms. T’s beauty certainly shined! Ms. T’s favorite attribute, her eyes, are absolutely stunning. The shade of her eye shadow paired with the variety of her outfit colors made her eyes pop! Ms. T’s red corset is gorgeous. The dramatic lighting combined with the black backdrop gave Ms. T a chance to show off her sassy side.Special thanks to Milagros Salon Spa for the fabulous job they did on Ms. T’s hair and makeup!
The teal corset (her personal favorite) is absolutely beautiful. We love that it could be worn with or without straps! And her shoes! Not only are they adorable, they highlight the tattoos on her feet perfectly. Although initially nervous about her session, Ms. T let loose and had a great time. When she came in to view her photos she was blown away. The album she created was outstanding. She loved her photos so much she came back in and ordered a wall piece to display in her bedroom.
We adore Ms. T and hope we get to see her again!
Ms. O moved from the East Coast to Seattle and we are so glad she did! She visited our studio so that she could surprise her hubby-to-be with an album full of photographs of her gorgeous self. Ms. O was a bit nervous about her shoot, but after reading all of the inspiring stories from other ladies online she was raring to go! A kind and passionate person, Ms. O let loose during her session and showed us her fun side! She was dancing, singing, and making jokes with our onset stylist, Kim, during the entire session. It was so much fun!
Ms. O brought a beautiful array of clothes for her session which highlighted her personality perfectly. From completely covered and adorable to nothing more than her red apron and a watermelon, Ms O. had a variety of styles within one session. The images of her wearing her favorite pair of jeans along with her man’s jacket surely lets you know that you don’t need to show a lot of skin to have an amazing boudoir session. Ms. O was cheeky enough to show off a bit more, but those photos are solely for her and her hubby-to-be!
Ms. O has since given her album to her man. She has told us that he was absolutely thrilled to receive the album and can’t wait to view more of her gorgeous photos. We are excited to spend more time with Ms. O., whether it is catching up over a plate of oysters or maybe another session!
Special thanks to Milagros Salon Spa for the fabulous job they did on Ms. O’s hair and makeup!
Ms. S is a mom of 2 young children who works full time and is also going to school for photography. Managing those aspects of her life, Ms. S says she doesn’t get the chance to often feel girly, but that’s exactly what we did for her during her photography session. She decided to do a boudoir session so she could have an amazing gift for her husband’s birthday, but she slowly found out that this experience totally about her! Ms. S loved having our staff with her through the whole process.
She started off a bit nervous about her session, but during her hair and makeup styling she got to know our staff. It took her only a few minutes to get comfortable with us and ultimately have a fun time! She felt like a superstar by the end of her session. When she came back in to choose the photos for her husband’s birthday surprise, she was stunned. The photos turned out better than she ever could have thought! Needless to say, her husband really enjoyed the gift he received!
Listen as Ms. S talks more about her experience with us in our studio.
Ms. L has gained the fabulous reputation around the studio as our little crier, but for all of the right reasons! Ms. L explains that her tears are for joy as she never realized the true beauty she is until she got to view her photographs after her session. This self-proclaimed ‘nerd’ had the idea of doing a boudoir session as one of her ‘bucket list’ ideas, but didn’t think she had the self-confidence to sign up for a session with our studio.
After Ms. L visited us for a studio consult she was hooked! Having the staff with her every step of the way during her photography session – words of encouragement which calmed her nerves to hugs that showed she is a part of our family – Ms. L had an emotional self-awaking journey with our studio.
We’d love to have her back in for another session, and do not fear, we will have tissues on hand for all of the tears of joy that are sure to show!
Ms. T visited our boudoir studio to have photographs just for her! A transplant to the Pacific Northwest, Ms. T is originally from Boston and definitely had a wicked dry sense of humor throughout her shoot. Use to wearing scrubs during the day, Ms. T was sure to show off her sultry side in all of her amazing outfits! She proved that a woman can be sexy in a jersey! The super cute panties didn’t hurt either. One of our favorite accessories for this outfit is her matching tattoo!
Ms. T also showed off her super sexy side in her brightly colored lingerie. The bright pink bra and panty set complimented her so nicely and her blue lingerie set was simply whimsical. We don’t doubt that the lucky pilot in her life, who she decided was lucky enough to see her photographs, loved what he saw because we sure did!
Meet Ms. H! Ms. H came to our boudoir studio originally to create a lovely gift for her husband for Valentine’s Day, but quickly realized that the experience was for her just as much as him. She looked fantastic in all of her outfits. Her beautiful teddy showed her sweet side, the black outfit and beautiful pink panties showed off a bit of her naughty side, and Ms. H wrapped in only a white sheet is just stunning. . In the end she said that all of the pampering and attention she received during her photography session made her feel amazing!
One of the best parts… a friend of hers did a session a few days later, and they decided to do their preview meetings together! The preview meeting is the time after a client’s session where they come back into our Seattle studio to view all of their lovely photographs. We love it when our ladies bring in their friends or significant others to view their photographs! Needless to say, Ms. H and her friend had a blast viewing each other’s pictures!
A few short weeks after designing her album for her lucky husband Ms. H dropped by the studio to pick up her amazing work of art. She instantly fell in love with her album! She even said she may not give it to her husband as she wanted to keep it for herself! We can’t wait to see her again – until then, here’s a few shots of the lovely Ms. H!
Yes, I did just say Mister and Dude-oir ! What can we say? Our sessions are not just for the ladies!!
Mister C’s photo shoot was simple and very “GQ” if you will. His no-fuss wardrobe consisted of jeans, button down shirt, suspenders, and boots! What more does a guy need? Immediately feeling at ease in the studio, Mister C kicked back with a can of PBR in hand – the perfect prop for him! We captured his chill suave sense of style with a hint of humor. Proving to be a good sport he entertained us by posing with a schnazzy top hat complete with a faux-stache. No big deal! After we had had our fun with him inside the studio we took it out to the streets and allies of Belltown. Graffiti, bikes, and beer… how very Seattle of him. Needless to say we had a ton of fun and Mister C now has pictures to prove it!
When Mister C came back in to view his amazing photographs he couldn’t believe his eyes! He LOVED them! And just like the ladies that come in to Seattle Boudoir he was stunned by the fact that he was viewing completely unedited and untouched images of himself! That’s right, ladies – even guys can be self critical about themselves. The thing is we do plenty of work before and during your session to make sure that lighting, sets, and photographic angles are all working hand in hand to best complement you. It’s our job and we LOVE making you look and feel amazing!
We are happy to share in our excitement over Mister C’s photo session. Here is a little sneak peek at his photos and what our dude-ior sessions look like. Keep us in mind for any fabulous men in your life that may be in need of an image/ego boost. Ladies shouldn’t be the only ones to get pampered, feel fabulous, and look amazing in photos!!
Ms. J…. what can’t we say about her! We love staying in contact with our clients after they’ve left the studio and as one of our biggest fans on Facebook and our blog, barely a week will go by where we won’t get the joy of talking with her! Ms. J originally scheduled her photography session with our studio so that she could give her loving husband an amazing anniversary present, but as many of our clients soon realize, the experience is more about them than their husbands! After having her hair and makeup done she said she felt like an absolute supermodel! Although she was a bit nervous at first, as soon as she stepped on set our team made her feel at ease. Our onset stylist cracked a few jokes, ensuring Ms. J had a great time. Our stylist also used her keen eye to guarantee Ms. J was posed perfectly just before our amazing photographer took some great shots of her. Ms. J’s choice of outfits couldn’t have been better. The corset showed off her best assets and the color complimented her purple hair perfectly. Her jacket and bra combination showed off an edgier side of Ms. J, but let’s not forget the apron she brought to the studio! Simply gorgeous!
When Ms. J came back to our Seattle studio after her session to view all of her lovely photographs, she cried tears of joy! She said that for the first time she was able to see herself in the light that her husband does every day. Nothing could make us enjoy what we do here at Seattle Boudoir than helping our clients realize the beauties that they are.
Although we haven’t seen Ms. J in a while, we would love to get her back into the studio. Maybe even to do a stellar couples session with that lucky husband of hers! Ms. J, you’re welcome back anytime.
With our valentines rush now done, we are back to blogging and with that the lovely Ms. B, is back!
The styling during her session led to so many different photographs that we decided to show her off twice! This set of photographs shows an edgier side of Ms. B. Although she loves camo colors, Ms. B. is sure to wear her pink hand wraps and her New Kids On The Block shorts during her sport fighting!
Her husband may be a body builder, but Ms. B. has an inner strength that can’t be beat.
