Portland Boudoir Photographer | Studio session with Ashley

This gorgeous woman is also a hair stylist. In fact, we worked together on a photo shoot that was recently on both a blog (Way out Wedding) and in a magazine (Cloud Orchid)!
We had a great time during her mini session in my Portland studio.

Portland Boudoir Studio | so simple, but so detailed

Crystal is a fellow photographer in the Portland area and she was an absolute joy to photograph in my new studio! She brought with her some beautiful lingerie, adorable glasses, and some great jewelry. Add in a sparkly top from my boudoir wardrobe, a funky green chair,  and a vintage camera and it really sounds like an overwhelming amount of details. Nope. We shot these in the all white portion of my studio and kept everything else so simple that the focus was on the details and the personality that Crystal brought to the shoot.

Portland Boudoir Photographer | New Studio | Sneak Peek

I’m sure you’ve heard by now, but I moved out of my Salem studio and am now renting studio space in Portland. It is in an old warehouse, near the Ross Island Bridge (SE side). It has huge old windows that let in gorgeous natural light and I’m totally smitten with it. There are so many options for posing and backgrounds too! Half of the studio is all white, as seen in the photo here, while the other half offers a darker, more moody setting. I can’t wait to share more form this session, as well as others that have been created in the new studio.

Portland Oregon Boudoir Studio | sweet maternity session

I occasionally get asked by clients, in almost a panicked tone, if I have to share their images. The answer is absolutely not! Yes, I love to share my sessions because my clients are beautiful,  I’m proud of my work, and it gives future clients inspiration for their own sessions, BUT it is not a requirement that you sign a model release! If you want to keep your images to yourself, I will absolutely respect that. I’d say about 1/3 of my clients keep their images private. It also doesn’t have to be an “all or nothing” situation. You can pick and choose which images I share. For example, this beautiful mama must remain anonymous for a variety of reasons, but she gave me permission to share these shots.
Can I also brag here for a minute? These were shot in front of a window and some $10 Ikea curtains. Sometimes I feel like the MacGyver of photography.
