amanda's boudoir session teaser


just before leaving las vegas i had the opportunity to do a boudoir session with amanda. i know some eyebrows raised right there when i said the "b" word. boudoir.
what does that word mean to you?
(please let me know in the comments field below.)
i'll answer my own question by saying that, to me, boudoir means confidence, expression, art, beauty.
i know these are not for everyone. it takes a lot of trust and professionalism, on both sides of the camera, to do this kind of session.
all my potential clients should know that my view on boudoir is identical to my view on trash-the-dress sessions. neither is meant to be trashy or distateful in any way. they are both about focusing on you and creating a beautiful work of art that you can be proud of.
as stated, this post is just a teaser. I have more images from this session and will be sharing them soon. those of you who would like to see more images from this session please email me and let me know. if you've seen enough, please tell me what you think.
if you read all that, i thank you. i am very passionate about my work and hope that is conveyed to you through not only my words, but my images as well.

Call me closed minded, which I am sure I would be considered in the art world, but boudoir to me = my hubby would not be assisting me that day.

But with that said...these are gorgeous and so beautifully done. Seriously...top quality and smokin hot!
Color is amazing, her positioning I love, her makeup and how clear the shots are.. WONDERFUL! I am so impressed!

David, who cares if some raise their eyebrows. We create art and if art offends some, so be it. Life goes on.

These are stunning! She is beautiful. My favorite is the first one.

And how on earth did i miss meeting you guys at wppi? Argh.

Those pics are AMAZING!!! It is so funny cause I was just wondering to myself why you had not done "boudoir" pics yet. I guess you have and they are awesome. I would love to see the rest of them. Hopefully one day I will be confident enough to have you do some of me. Great gift for the hubby. Always love to check out your site - keep up the GREAT work!

Love you guys, Renee

tanasha said...

Hi Kimmie,

I love your site and the pictures are beautiful and very creative. My husband and of course I were very impressed. Your husband, you and daughter do an awesome job. My husband is curious as to the type of camera or camera's you guys use. If you can disclose that secretive info...lol
He also told me to tell you guys that you have skills!!
thank you again for the info.

Lauren said...

I LOVE the clarity in her eyes in every image. Honestly, that's where my eye is drawn first. These are very beautiful and tastefully done!

J.Stoia Portrait Design said...

This boudoir session is STUNNING! This had to b that 85 1.2 glass. Don't have it yet... but dying to have it. The composition on these are amazing and make her look great. I am so excited I have a new blog to stalk ;) Thanks so much for finding me!

Beadale Photography said...

Well for me, Boudoir means an old Hollywood glamourous style bedroom with lots of deep rich colors, red & wine velvets, silks and maribou feathers, chandeliers dripping with crystal prisms, and pillows strew about! But...that's just the interior decorator coming out in me, lol! :-)

Seriously, these are very tasteful, elegant and Playboy doesn't have anything on you! The model is gorgeous, the lighting is heavenly and the photographers are brilliant! Need I say more???

Oh yes just one one more thing...Happy Easter to you, and yours!

Anonymous said...

So unreal! These are stunning images. Oh how I wish I had the confidence to do one of these!

Ginger Murray said...

Just when I think that it isn't possible for you to get any better...
holy smokes. Your post-processing... I'm amazed.

If you ever do a workshop, let me know. Seriously.

I'm sad that I missed you too! I'm hoping it won't be the last chance, though:)

Ginger Murray said...

I was so amazed, I forgot to comment on what boudoir means to me!
Well, if I were to shoot one, it would be tasteful and beautiful... images for a bride's husband. These are sexy, yet tasteful and beautiful-- in my opinion, what it should be. You said you have more, and maybe those are more scandalous;) I'm not into tasteless, overly-sexy pics, with fake, over-done, trying-too-hard poses. Everything you do has taste, so I'm sure even the ones you're not showing are gorgeous.

Shores Photography said...

wow! these are really really amazing!!!
