Emma's Signature Session | Ocean Goddess
Updated: Oct 8, 2020
I wanted to make something really special for the Client Closet....
OK, well..technically. I mean, that's true. I wanted something that very few other photographers would have that my clients could feel amazing in. But I'd be lying if I said the idea didn't originally come from TikTok. Another Boudoir photog posted a video saying how obsessed she is with the pearl set from Burlesque, and how bad she wanted one. Buying one of these things is hundreds of dollars. I suggested she DIY it. She said no way. I did it more or less to prove a point. You can do (and DIY) anything if you're willing to put in the work.
So several weeks and I don't even know how many hours later, I have a pretty effing amazing pearl set. And if you know me, you know I cannot just hang it in the closet and say "OK, now what?" NOPE. I have to do an absolutely fabulous photoshoot with it. So I got local model Emma Gallagher and we hit Casperson beach rocks with wonderfully angry hurricane castoff storm surge.
On a side note, I am also offering these made to order (and in different colors!!) on my new Etsy shop, The Boudoirdrobe. So now you can have your own (cheaper than you think)
Also, literally every session something funny happens- and I'm not going to lie, this session was a bit of a shitshow. XD
