These days most of my time is taken up with wonderful customers, so my opportunity to shoot with models in a more creative sense is very limited. Recently, some last minute changes meant that both myself and Kerry Baker (our go to makeup artist here at Lace and Pearl) found ourselves with a free day. We decided to take that opportunity to do a styled boudoir shoot with beautiful model Anita Cannon and some equally beautiful lingerie loaned to us by the amazing local lingerie company Raine & Bea.
This also coincided with the completion of our new day bed set. What do you all think? Our gorgeous four poster is still a firm favourite in the studio, but I think the day bed is going to prove just as popular!
Anita is a wonderful model who has extensive experience both as a fashion and bridal model as well as working as an actor. However she was keen to add boudoir to her modelling portfolio, a style of photo shoot she hadn't tried before.
Our modelling packages are the perfect opportunity if you are a similar established model looking to add some gorgeous romantic boudoir to your portfolio, or even if you are an aspiring model wanting to gain experience in a safe and welcoming all female studio environment.
I can provide as much or as little direction as necessary, so whether you are comfortable posing yourself or would prefer me to direct and coach in a similar way to how I shoot with my boudoir customers, take a look at our Modelling Packages and get in touch to book your shoot!
As this was an opportunity for both myself and Kerry to be a little bit more creative, we decided to go for a slightly more editorial look with hair and makeup whilst still keeping the overall feel in keeping with the romantic styling that we love here at Lace and Pearl. As always, Kerry was absolutely spot on with the look she created and Anita looked absolutely stunning!
The lingerie provided by Raine & Bea was an absolute joy to work with. Incredibly well made, beautifully designed and crafted from the most gorgeous of fabrics, we all agreed how stunning it was. Definitely a brand I can hand on heart recommend to any customers considering a shoot with us and looking for something extra special to treat themselves too.
