The first image we saw from this boudoir immediately transported us into a fairytale, watching a woodland nymph run through a sun dappled forest. The story behind these images is just as magical. Katherine of Katherine Henry Boudoir knew when she saw this nightgown that she wanted to use it, she just had no idea how perfect it would be for this ethereal session...
The session started when I saw this beautiful vintage nightgown on Etsy. I just had to have it. I loved the ruffles on top and the sheerness of the fabric. It was so light and feminine. I wanted to shoot it at a time of day that really had beautiful light so we could really highlight the wardrobe and convey airiness.
Well, it definitely sat in my closet for a bit of time before I had the right session. Then came along Ashley, a beautiful day and amazing forest near my studio - it was meant to be! I really love how Tara styled Ashley's hair and makeup. When I showed her the vintage nightgown the ideas started flowing.
Ashley and I headed to the forest and walked around to find many beautiful spots that reminded me of something out of a fairytale. It didn't hurt that we were there just before sunset and the lighting was amazing! I love how you can see the light coming through the bottom of the dress - the colors remind me of sherbet! Perfect for a summer day.
My approach to boudoir is to keep it light, happy and natural. I use almost all natural light and love the light and airy look. I love chatting with my clients as we take photos. This allows for us to get to know each other more and have a more natural expression.
Boudoir is something all women should do for themselves. You will feel amazing during and after, it's such a high! No matter where you are in your life you can document it. Life changes so fast I feel it's really important to remember all the little moments.
