Salem Boudoir Photographer | sunset in the studio

Just beyond the sunset
Someone waits for me
Just beyond the sunset
Lies my destiny
Where the purple mountains
Lie in deep tranquillity
There I’ll find the treasure
Of love eternally 

Just beyond the sunset
Waits someone so fair
Just beyond the sunset
All alone they wait there
Their hair is golden
The colour of the sand
Their eyes sparkle in the night
Like diamonds in your hand

Just beyond the sunset
Lies a home for me
Where the world is peaceful
Like a paradise should be
Just beyond the sunset
Someday is where you’ll find me

~David Harris, 1966


These shots were from the very first boudoir session I did in my studio. I knew immediately that I loved shooting in there at sunset. I have west facing windows, so for about 2 hours the light just pours in like this. It’s stunning and beautiful, and I’m just so in love with it! It allows me to be creative in so many ways – exposure, composition, shadows, etc. 

If you are invested in booking a sunset studio session, just let me know. I often shoot in the evenings and on weekends, as those are the times that tend to work best for my boudoir clients. Most are moms and/or work 9-5 type jobs, so evenings and weekends just make sense. 

Please feel free to visit my website at www.kelwardphotography.com and view my boudoir portfolio at www.kelwardphotography.com/boudoir. I also have a Facebook page (click here to view), as well as a “regular” blog, if you’re interested in more than just boudoir. Click HERE to view my other blog.

I can be reached by email at kel@kelwardphotography.com and by phone/text at 503-939-6781. I look forward to meeting you! If you’d like to sit and chat, I have space available for that in my studio. I’m also happy to meet up with you at your home or at a local coffee shop. Just let me know what works best for you!

Salem Boudoir Studio | looking through

This is one of my favorite boudoir images taken in my studio. It’s so simple, but has a sense of mystery to it. There’s a soulfulness about it that I just love. 
If you’re interested in recreating a shot like this for your studio boudoir session, just let me know. I keep these mirrored beads on hand just for this reason.
