Sometimes, a piece of lingerie truly speaks to you. As boudoir photographers ourselves, we completely understand that flutter-heart feeling of being at the thrift store, browsing through fun little goodies, and suddenly happening upon the most gorgeous, delicate, vintage lace robe or teddy, and melting into a puddle of inspiration on the floor. Emily of Emily Jean Photography had a similar experience, and we are so happy she did!

When you come across a vintage piece from a local thrift store and you know you can make a whole shoot out of it, you know you have to buy it. This session was inspired by brides who are comfortable in being the person they are, and getting ready to marry their significant other. The willow tree used as a backdrop made the session very soft, delicate and natural.

We get so many submissions with beautiful stories of strong women, but sometimes it's nice to keep it light and fun, with just-because photo shoots. They can be rejuvenating for the spirit, and help to inspire us to go out and search for those heart-warming stories we all love to hear! We would love to see your just-because, inspiration shoots.
