Boudoir Photography on the blog today and I know that this can be a hot potato for some. However for me, the actual images in boudoir photography are only part of the story, as a boudoir session is more of a journey for the model involved – the images being the lasting reminder of the experience.
Plus of course it does depend on the actual concept, an amazing boudoir creative team and a fabulous photographer such as Cat Hepple from The Sweet Reveal – to make a boudoir session truly come alive.
So today we are sharing a Marie Antoinette boudoir photography session by TeamAmour 1, captured at the stunning Chateau Challain in the Loire Valley.
What makes this session even more special for me is that the star of our shoot is not a professional model, but mum of two Rachel – who was just fabulous throughout her boudoir journey. Our session is set in the Chateau’s picturesque estate and beautiful neo-gothic bedrooms, complete with wood paneling, antique chaise longue and marble fireplaces, providing the lavish boudoir setting for our shoot.
The essence of the shoot was only made possible with the creative work of hair and make up artist Victoria Farr who brought Marie Antoinette to life, with the help of florals by French Flower Style and lingerie by Sheer Bliss, jewellery by Jo Barnes and shoes by Harriet Wilde.
To truly join us on our boudoir journey, be sure to watch and find out more about Rachel’s experience in our Behind the Boudoir Film by Story of Your Day.
