Ballet Boudoir- Bucks County Boudoir Photographer

To say that I’m excited about this shoot would be an understatement. I have been wanting to do a shoot like this for at least a year and a half now, and some amazing people made my dreams come true!

I’ve been following Rie for a little while now on instagram, she has an amazing sense of style and loooves bright colors. When I found out that she was a ballerina, I knew that she was the one for this shoot.

The peacock chair was a recent score from a local thrift store and it definitely brought the whole shoot to another level. Speaking of bringing the shoot to another level, can we talk about the insanely gorgeous bouquet that Rie is holding in some of the shots?! Lauren from Flora of Lambertville created this bright wildflower-esque bouquet for me and it’s honestly one of my favorite bouquets I’ve seen.

The bright colors really steal the show against the black lacey bodysuit/slip combo that Rie is wearing. The golden sunset on the bright fuchsias within the bouquet made me feel like it was summer, even though we were a tad bit chilly while shoooting this!

Rie is a pro, and I’m not just saying that, she’s an actual professional ballerina at the First State Ballet theatre in Delaware. She was born in Japan and moved to the United States on her own, she’s such a sweet heart and so talented!

Last but not least, thank you to Kristin, my amazing second shooter/assistant who threw that fabric in the air a million times just so we could get the perfect shot!

Thanks so much for checking out this blog post! I hope you enjoyed looking through the images that I loved creating! Check below for credits!

Two lovebirds in the city-Lauren Driscoll Photography

When I heard that Kristin was coming back to PA from living in California, I got so excited. We had only shot once before she left and with the news of her coming back, I knew we had to shoot again!

Kristin and Russell met at Antonelli, just like my boyfriend and I. Kristin graduated a year before my first year there so we had never had the chance to have classes together. She studied photography while Russell studied graphic design. Since Graphic design and Photography never have classes together, these two didn’t meet until their last couple of weeks before graduating!

The two of them are so fun and care free and I knew I had to photograph them together. I shot their whole session on film, which was a first for me! If I’m going to shoot film, I’ll usually do a few frames of digital to balance it out just in case the film doesn’t turn out the way I had planned.

Kristin’s dress was such a vibrant orangey red and I love the way the film captured the color! Kristin works for Free People so her style is always on point. It was so fun walking around the city finding cute little spots to photograph them at. I’m never shooting in the city, so whenever I do it’s always a fun time because it breaks me out of my comfort zone!

Kristin and I have very similar shooting styles, and that’s why I asked her to be one of my second shooters for my wedding season this year! We both love the same candid effortless looks and pose clients very similarly so it was a match made in heaven.

I can’t wait for wedding season to really get into full swing with this gal!

Witchy Boudoir session - Bucks County Photographer

This is Maria. She’s basically the most beautiful soul in the world, and when I say I’m in love with this session, I really really mean it. I love all my sessions, but this one I LOVE.

Maria and I met when I was hired to photograph headshots and group photos of the salon she works at! One of my dear friend’s Kayla’s Aunt is the owner and Kayla had already given me the inside scoop on the salon before I went in for the job. She told me that Maria was super cool and I would totally love her. And that, is where this romance blossomed.

For the next few months, Maria and I just had a little online romance, nothing more, nothing less. One day, this unicorn of a woman slid right on into my DM and basically asked me if it’d be cool to do a photoshoot with her and what my thoughts were. Well…little did she know, that I was waiting for this day.

Basically we went full force for this session, I utilized all my poses and Maria brought all the magic. Molly, once again killed it on hair and makeup, like she has been for the past few boudoir sessions that she’s been doing with me. We lucked out by getting a gorgeous day and Maria was 1000% down for doing some outdoor stuff!

I knew that vintage chairs and wildflower bouquets were going to bring all of the witchy vibes together, especially with the bodysuit and lipstick choice. This session is one of those sessions that makes me really stop and go “wow this is my job” It blows me away that I get such amazing clients (I don’t even like calling them clients because they’re more friends then anything) who let me have creative control and trust me with my vision!

I’m totally rambling in this post, I’m just super excited about this session and just want the world to see how gorgeous this lady is. If you ask Maria why she did a boudoir session, she’ll let you know that it’s because “posting your own nudes on instagram is frowned upon.” And the reason why every lady should do a boudoir session is “because we are all unicorns, magical creatures, and it’s hard to capture on film” Every bit of that is true. If you want to feel like a beautiful unicorn, head on down to Blue Lotus and get your hair done by Maria and then email me and I’ll photograph you in all your beauty!

Thanks so much for reading, if you’ve even got this far. This was definitely the most unstructured blog post I’ve written to date, but that doesn’t even matter because my degree is in photography, not writing. Anyways, check out the links below for details from this post!
