Ever since we moved into our Collingswood, New Jersey studio, I’ve been dreaming about an outdoor/ garden boudoir photo shoot like this. Something about summer always seems to get me itching to try new things or bring an idea to fruition. Little by little I started gathering inspiration, pretty wardrobe pieces, and then brought the idea to Shannon and Carlee (of course they were both on board). These two ladies are always key in helping pull something like this off, we just get each other. Our own little photo shoot dream team. We started shooting around 8am for good light and to try to avoid the mid day July heat, but were having such a blast that we worked well into the afternoon. We worked from a knee deep pile of wardrobe pieces and chose about 6 to work with. This first set was shot in a Victoria’s Secret romper that Shannon brought along with a bed that I set up in the garden area. These are just a few of my favorites from this set and I wanted to start sharing them right away. So check back soon, there are lots more to come! You can also book your own garden boudoir shoot with us as part of the Luxe session and of course, weather permitting.
Hi darlings! My name is Megan. I’m the assistant/behind the scenes girl here at Glamour and Boudoir by Glamour Bitch! I’ve communicated with many of you through emails/social media and sometimes get the pleasure of meeting you at the studio. If we haven’t spoken or met, I hope to someday! Anyway, I’m writing this to talk about the photo shoot I had with my lovely bosses Dawn & Shannon. Like many of our clients, I was a nervous wreck! I may be an easy going gal but me in front of a camera? Half naked?! Oh boy! We’re our own biggest critics ladies and despite working for a photography studio, I’m very hard on myself. I’ve never had a photo shoot or considered doing one. However, Dawn and Shannon quickly convinced me otherwise. I must say, all of you lovely ladies also gave me the courage to get in front of Dawn’s Nikon. Reading your positive feedback and seeing your smiling faces at the studio made me want to get in on the action. Once you get over the silly voice in your head saying “you’re not model material”, all that’s left is showing up ready for endless possibilities!
After a wardrobe run through, a much needed cup of espresso and Shannon’s magical hair/makeup application, I was ready to go! Much to my surprise, the actual photo shoot was a breeze! Dawn guided me throughout the entire shoot. (“Where do I put my hand? How’s my hair? Does my butt look big?) Questions Dawn heard a million times that day (what a saint) but bared with me. The room was full of laughter, fun, and poses you didn’t think were in your range of possibility! Trust me when I say I had no idea I could look the way I do in my pictures. I love them! Although I’m lucky enough to have Dawn & Shannon as my bosses, they’re wonderful girls just to hang out with. Aside from being AMAZING at what they do, they genuinely want to make each girl that steps through our door feel beautiful, and they do. If you haven’t already, I hope you all build up the courage to do a boudoir shoot with us. I promise you’ll be happy you did it! xoxo Megan
