Girls on Film Goes NATURAL!

Last week, Girls on Film went outside.

The four women who participated in this shoot are REAL. One is engaged, another is a newlywed, one is the mother of a 5 month old, and yet another has all those things still ahead of her. I partnered with Meagan of MegBDesign for styling, Rent My Dust vintage rentals for props, and the amazing 3825 S. Bowen for this incredible location. For one afternoon, I set aside all the constraints of shooting boudoir in a hotel and explored the great outdoors with these incredible women. I couldn’t possibly be more proud of the results, and I’m so excited to shoot more of these sessions!

As I said on Facebook when I posted the sneak peek, I’m now offering a new package specializing in these organic, natural boudoir sessions. The light and the freedom are more similar to the way we shoot weddings & engagements, and in working on these images, I felt like my boudoir work was finally starting to feel like ME. Since I posted that sneak peek, I’ve booked nine forthcoming outdoor boudoir sessions, and you’d better believe I’m excited to do this more and more!

There’s never been a post on this boudoir blog as long as the one I’m posting today, but hey… there’s a first time for everything, right? I hope this gets you fired up enough to share with your friends, and perhaps book a session yourself. There’s no day like TODAY to celebrate the woman you are!

Thank you MegBDesign for your help styling all these incredible ladies. You always GET my vision, and I couldn’t live without you.

Thank you to Rent My Dust vintage rentals for all your goodies!

Thank you to 3825 S. Bowen for letting us take over the property for an afternoon. This is my new favorite place to shoot, and I’m so excited to use more of this incredible space!

A HUGE thank you to Mack for the behind the scenes & group photos, as well as for all the unglamourous things like setting up a bed and hoisting girls up into a tree and running back and forth with water bottles. You & Eric were phenomenal and so helpful, and Meg & know how very lucky we are to have you! (Check out the McGowan Images blog for a few “behind the scenes” images from the day)

And finally, to my four ladies… Lisa, Madlyn, Natalie & Courtney. You were all fabulous, and I’m so glad you were willing to take a chance and invest in something I’d never done before. I hope you’re all thrilled to pieces with the results and I get to shoot you all again. It was the MOST fun!:)

Chelsea, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of this new adventure – and you know I love our adventures best 😉 And to the four of you women – y’all blew me out of the water on this one.
