Nothing to Wear?

Coupled with a fabulous pose that complements your curves, your choice of wardrobe is going to be the second thing he notices about your images.

You can choose to model your look after a hot little number you saw on the store mannequin, you can choose to stay simple in a matching bra & panty set, or you can choose to wear nothing but a smile and a white sheet.

The best advice I can give to you is to make sure that whatever you select as part of your photoshoot wardrobe, be completely comfortable wearing it.
We can find great inspiration on the websites like Pinterest and in the catalogues of our favorite lingerie stores.  (check out my Boudoir Pinterest Board!)

Need more ideas? Try a matching bra & panty set, mismatched bras & panties, corsets & garter belts, silk slips, bodysuits, rompers, or a robe. Whatever makes you feel confident and sexy!

I hope that got your wheels spinning in regards to your general wardrobe, but we can’t forget about another integral part of the boudoir wardrobe: the shoes! A killer pair of heels lengthens our legs, rounds out our derriere, and makes the majority of men weak in the knees. It also adds that final touch of sexiness to your look. Make sure you bring a few pairs of shoes with you to your session.

Chances are that even if they aren’t so comfortable to walk in, they are going to look amazing in the photographs. Trust me on that!

Studio Renovating !!!!

Also a major clean up and organizing all this weekend!  I started with an idea of a very sexy boudoir only studio and thought why not completely redo the studio to maximize my space.

I have a theme in mind – gold and white, modern but with some vintage flare.  I knew I wanted an accent wall to help double as some cool unique backdrops so I looked at some paint samples and of course chose a plumb purple (my fav) and it would totally go with the gold and white.  I’ll be honest, I had little faith I could pull off some crazy artwork on this wall BUT I jumped right into this Gold sharpie tutorial and OMG it turned out amazing!!!  Could not be happier.

Next on my reno todo is the bed and window curtains, big things are happening and it feels good!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

It’s MID December already!!!

Well December sure got really busy, am I right?!?! If there are any full time working mama’s or full time stay at home mamas that have figured out how to balance work and family please please let me know!  I can honestly say I have never been more busy in my entire life!.  Working full time (well minus Wednesday and the weekends), keeping up on my Photography edits and sessions while trying to promote the heck out of my business is very time consuming, then add in family time which is basically equal time, I have little hours in the day left to do all the house hold chores, laundry, dishes, meals, cleaning, bath times, bedtimes, naps, snacks all of which take top priority .

But moving on because who has the time to rant.

Last month my wonderful and beautiful cousin got married and it was a ton of fun to be able to capture her day!

And we’re back!..

Ok so long story short, we had a storm, it fried ALL our network gear, had to buy new and wait ever so patiently for it all to arrive in the mail, and for my awesome husband to get us back online!  Yea!

Ok back to business!  I have just started my Christmas Mini Session blast!  I know I know STOP talking about Christmas, we just had Halloween. BUT listen in order to create you your FABULOUS Christmas cards we need to shoot them now so I can design them and print them.

So for now lets talk only a little Christmas, then December 1 you can go nuts with it!xmasminadhoz

Mom-tasking

 

Started thinking about what to write for mom Mondays while my one year old sits on my desk as I type, jamming his soother into my mouth, and I think…. I have MASTERED multi tasking!

Being a mom has forced me and I am sure every single other mom on the planet to multitask.  If not you literally get ZERO things done and become a massive stress ball and lash out at your husband when he asked why there are no clean dishes, or why it’s 6pm and no one has made dinner.

Here’s 6 ways to be a MOM-TASKER

1.Is everyone feeling sticky? Take showers with the kids while they are still young enough, saving water and time, win win.  Thats an obvious one.

2. Do you work from home or need to use your computer?  Get side by side screens one for your work the other plays Paw Patrol on loop.  Got kid headphones? Even better!

3. Do you separate  laundry, then fold it after it’s dry?  WHY? Maybe fold work pants or hang that one top you own that can’t be folded but leave the rest in a basket and pick out of it as the week goes on.  Nobody has time for folding.  Don’t even think about ironing, honestly throw that thing out.   If you’re thinking ‘Wait omg NO!,  What if I have an important meeting and now all my outfits are so wrinkly it’s embarrassing’ – This is why they have the WRINKLE RELEASE option on your dryer! Set it for like 5 mins and you’re good, time saved, problem solved.  This not only saves you time but since you’re not folding you can get dishes done and dinner cooked

4. Use your google calendar for absolutely everything, I mean everything and have all the reminders set to ring 5 mins before.  Need to wake up at 6am create an event, set an event for getting downstairs by 7am so the kids can get to daycare by 8.  Create an event to remind you to stop at the bank, one to say stop at the grocery store, literally everything you need to do in the day make an event.  Not only does it look like you’re so busy and successful when someone glances at you schedule you can easily say ‘oh my, I already have 5 things going on that day, I couldn’t possibly commit to that.’  Bonus – share them all with your husband so he sees how ridiculous your days are while he’s at work, maybe he’ll come home with dinner a few nights 🙂

5. Make clean up time, actual work!  Every toy my son picks up to put away I quiz him, what shape is that, what colour is that.  Where does it go (Sorting).  Also have him follow you around with the swiffer, he thinks it’s a game, while you are tidying up he’s cleaning the floors.

6. Outdoor work with my 2 is a bit much but the days we do attempt it I put them to work.  While you need to cut the grass with the push lawnmower (I don’t suggest having kids out if you have to use a riding lawnmower), have them pull out your very overgrown weeds.  I would suggest buying little kids gardening gloves because getting dirt from under your own fingernails is hard enough.  Guaranteed you may lose a flower here and there because they will forget what you said the weeds looked like BUT it gets done.  Plan this fun activity while you have dinner in the oven.
Ok well maybe these are more mommy time savers than anything but either way I think they are at least somewhat helpful!
