Inspiration finds me in all sorts of ways. When I’m not shooting boudoir, I’m shooting weddings and working with some of the most awe-inspiring vendors who are all geniuses in their field. In this case, I was inspired by the ever-so-talented florist Janine Sabastian and her team at FaBLOOMosity here in Edmonton. Our idea was to do a boudoir shoot that had a focus on her fresh floral creations as opposed to the lingerie. Rounding out our collaboration was Makeup artist and Stylist, Sunita Sumaru from Sen Studios— someone I always trust to beautify my lovely clients! And speaking of lovely clients– we handpicked our model, the gorgeous Caylee, from amongst my past boudoir clients because we thought she fit the look we were going for perfectly.
It was so much fun to have them there from start to finish and the whole process was completely freestyle. We had no idea going in to the shoot what Janine and her team were going to create for us and let me tell you– a bra made out of fresh rose petals just blew my expectations out of the water!! Here I was just expecting a few flowers pinned to the wall with clothes pins- bahaha!! That’s what you get when you let creative people do their thing I guess 🙂 And having Sunita there to change up the makeup and hair styles on a whim was such a treat– I just loved watching both of them in their element! Inspiration really was the theme of the day– and it was exactly what my heart needed going in to the start of another busy season.
This styled shoot was simply meant to let us play and create without any limitations so we could just show off a different side to our work– but the cherry on top of it all was that it ended up being picked up by an awesome photography magazine Lemonade & Lenses! Pick yourself up a copy HERE if you’d like to check out the beautiful 14 page spread, along with an article written by yours truly on the topic of “How to Shoot Boudoir while incorporating a Theme”. Definitely my biggest magazine feature to date, and I still get butterflies when I see it all in print <3
