Happy Fourth of July! Happy Independence Day! I love holidays of every kind and holidays in the summer are even better. I love barbecues, fireworks and taking the kiddos to the parade. Celebrating is so much fun – and of course one of my favorite things to celebrate is boudoir photography and making Bmore babes feel empowered and amazing! Today, I thought I would combine these two and talk about styling a patriotic boudoir shoot.
Having a patriotic boudoir shoot is a great way to show support to a loved one in the military, show some support for the good ol’ USA or simply have some fun with red white and blue.
Red is a fabulous color for boudoir photography and it has the added advantage of being a popular color so there are tons of options available! Blue and white are also excellent colors. Pairing these together make for an unmistakable Independence Day vibe. For a more subtle touch, you can incorporate just one or the other so that you can do a shoot with one Fourth of July-inspired outfit and then re-wear pieces for different outfits throughout the photoshoot.
Sometimes it can be nice to have an accessory to pose with, and the American flag is a wonderful one to choose! It’s eye-catching and easy to pose with. Also, you can choose whatever size you’d like so you can use it as a robe, a backdrop, or strategic cover in your photos.
Not here for super bright and eye-catching colors? Or simply want some options. Camo can be a more subtle option that still supports the meaning of the day. It’s a great accessory color, as this Bmore babe is showing. What a cute hat!
Okay, so maybe not sparkler sparklers. Although if all fire safety rules are followed, I think there could be a great photo opportunity there! I love doing sparkler send-off photos for my brides. But sparkles are always a good idea. Jewelry and makeup are great for a little touch. Also, a sequined crop top. I bet that would be cute!
Give me a call! I’d love to talk to you.
"Anne is an incredibly talented photographer, and her passion for capturing beautiful memories really shines through during her boudoir sessions. She really takes that time to make sure you're comfortable, and I honestly felt so glamorous and confident. This photo shoot was such an empowering thing to do! (and honestly...it was really fun to get all dolled up and pretend to be a supermodel for the day!) I highly recommend Anne and Bmore Boudoir."
"Working with Anne was absolutely amazing! Anne is very knowledgeable and gave wonderful advice. Even though Anne was a lot of fun and very laid back, she ensured she exuded professionalism always. I was so nervous to do a boudoir shoot and was lacking some serious confidence. Anne has a special way with her that made me feel not only comfortable, but confident and sexy! The pictures were beautiful and very tasteful. I cannot wait to work with Anne again!"
"Working with you was incredible!! You were so laid back, made me feel comfortable and beautiful in my skin. I didn't feel like I needed to cover up or hide at all. Your direction and energy was exactly what I needed to have a successful shoot. I chose YOU to do the session because I felt like you would put me at ease and we'd just have FUN during the shoot, and I was right ;) Having finished and leaving that day I felt empowered and absolutely gorgeous, like I could take on anything life threw at me haha! I was super excited to get the photos back and share them with my hunny, and he LOVED them! No complaints there <3"
