Bridal boutique boudoir session | Empowering Women with Confidence

hotel boudoir session in Champaign

Late in 2017 I worked with this winter bride-to-be to create her wedding day gift for her soon-to-be husband.  The skies were cloudy outside the hotel, but we had perfect window light to work with.  This bride rocked her session and did such a great job with my posing instructions, her facial expressions, and choosing her outfits and props.  I’ve started adding in coffee cups/mugs from the hotel rooms to some of my sessions as an added little personal touch, and I love the added dimension it gives to each session.  Special shoutout to one of my primary makeup artists Brittany Koroyanis, who is shown working here in the first image! Thanks Brittany for always making my clients look their best!!

Boudoir inspiration | Champaign-Urbana boudoir photography

black lace fabric handcuffs from Zulily

Another cool thing my clients taught me about in 2017 was this adorable lace handcuffs! The same afternoon that I photographed these sessions, I went home and ordered my own set of these for clients to use! It never hurts to throw in an extra prop when inspiration may be a bit lacking. I also love when women bring in their significant other’s “stuff” — his baseball cap, his favorite shirt, a team jersey, workout equipment, etc. It also helps to break up the session a bit, and give us something to focus on other than just lingerie and your gorgeous eyes and fab makeup!

Illinois boudoir photographer | Mini sessions in hotel setting

I’ve cut back a bit on the number of hotel boudoir mini sessions I’m doing throughout the year, and trying to disperse them during the times of the year that most people ask — right before Valentine’s Day, right before wedding season, and right before Christmas! It seemed to have paid off as I had a full slate of beautiful women signed up for my May mini sessions, and they brought their “A” games!

We had everything from Cubs jerseys to comic book underwear to hot heels to lacy and racy robes to the super sexy bra and panties sets. As always, Brittany did a fabulous job on everyone’s makeup, tailoring it to their specific wants and needs. I can’t wait to see what the November mini sessions this year bring!!
