Brow Power

It's probably the thing that is most over looked on our face, but can make all the difference in our photos.  Our eyebrows not only help frame our face, it completes our look. While shape is really important, something as simple as filling them in or making them darker will help a lot too.  So this post is going out to those light weights, skimpy, sparse, and thinning brows, because we all deserve to be fearlessly fierce.

Bleached out brows are a thing of the past; start framing! Photo from: Makeup Artist Meet

Look Natural not Naked

Sometimes I get clients who ask me for a "barely there" look for a boudoir shoot, because their significant other is not a fan of makeup.  So why not just skip the makeup process all together? Well it's kind of an oxymoron, but in order to look natural in your photos you still need to wear makeup.  Take a look at Miss S in her before and after shot, and you'll start to get the bigger picture.

O'So Lovey Boudoir with Miss J

So this week I decided to showcase another lovely lady from the boudoir marathon. Miss J is no stranger to the lens, but this was intended to be a gift for her boyfriend.  Since Isa and I forget to take a before photo almost all the time, Miss J was sweet enough to share one.

O'So Lovely Glamour

So this week, I learned something new.  What our O'So Lovely team refers to as Boudoir is actually more Glamour.  Yes, the shoot in a bedroom and the ladies wear very beautiful garments, but it goes beyond that.  Isabella said it best, "I don't shoot bums, I shoot women".  Go ahead, I encourage you to compare her photos with the traditional photographers and you'll see difference; I think that's the only real way to understand it.
