GenelLynne approached Ryan and Janelle while they were all on a vacation together, thinking that the fun and up-for-anything couple would love having boudoir images of themselves. They agreed immediately and planned an impromptu couple's session, wearing what they already had on. GenelLynne was amazed at how natural the couple was in front of the camera and how they lost themselves in each other almost immediately, which isn’t an easy thing to do with someone else in the room.
Ryan and Janelle shared their feelings and memories from the shoot with Boudoir Collective:
We were approached by Genel while we were all on vacation together. Before that moment, we hadn't ever considered doing a shoot like this. It was a fresh idea and while I thought it would be awkward or uncomfortable, it was the opposite. It was so fun and relaxing. Genel is such an easy going spirit and she put us at ease from the very beginning. Looking into each other's eyes, and enjoying these quiet intimate moments made it easy to forget that she was even there. We were just doing our thing, in our own little world.
There's such a vulnerability that comes into play with intimacy. Add a photographer catching that moment, and it's amps it up by a hundred. The images after were what brought us closer together. Just looking at them, we felt our love in a more tangible way. And now we have those images to last a lifetime.
We are so thankful to GenelLynne, Ryan and Janelle for sharing this gorgeous couple's boudoir with Boudoir Collective. We love their relaxed attitudes and their message of the importance of vulnerability in a relationship. As their session proves, taking the time to capture these intimate moments with your loved one is something you will to treasure for the rest of your life.
