When she walked in the room, she knew the grey of the walls would be the perfect backdrop for the colors she had chosen. The lush purple of the tulle and the blue in the dress and lingerie would jump out from the images against the moody blue-grey walls. The gold of the headboard would pop, and all eyes would focus on the gorgeous face of her model.
Color is so important when thinking about planning a boudoir session. The right color will highlight the model’s skin, bring out her eyes and set the overall mood for the images. This session by Olga Plakitina Photography uses purple -- a color that symbolizes power, passion, mystery and spirituality. The first images captures us with the bold color, and the following images bring us into a deeper connection with mood.
When you’re planning your next boudoir, think about taking a page from Olga’s book and choosing a bright and bold color. We love the drama of these images and we’re energized by the way the lush background highlights the model’s form. We hope you’re inspired by it, too!
