Session Spotlight Mrs. G. | Tallahassee Boudoir Photography

Session Spotlight Mrs. G. | Tallahassee Boudoir Photography

I’m so glad to have the opportunity to show off another beautiful session! While the majority of the sessions that we do are for just one person, this particular one was for two! Two best friends decided to spend the ultimate girls day out and get glammed over together for a double boudoir photo session! Both ladies arrived together and then spent the day chatting, helping each other choose outfits, and enjoying mimosas until I whisked one off to be photographed. They each wanted to do something to surprise their husbands for a special occasion. Here is Mrs. G in all of her glamorous elegance! She’s already shown them off to her husband (and her mom, and her friends) and I hear they were a big hit! Check out her testimonial below!

I admit that I had my reservations and fears about boudoir photography, but at a friend’s suggestion, I took the leap as an anniversary gift to my husband. The whole experience was so much fun and made me feel feminine and sexy again. I absolutely love my photos and I’m not embarrassed at all to show them off. Best of all, my husband was very surprised by the unique gift and loves them as much as I do.

Session Spotlight – Mrs. W | Tallahassee Maternity Boudoir

Session Spotlight – Mrs. W | Tallahassee Maternity Boudoir

posted in: Maternity Boudoir, Private Sessions, Session Spotlight

 I was thrilled with Mrs. W. contacted me about doing her maternity session. She has had both a boudoir session prior to having her first child as well as a maternity session the first time she was pregnant. This pregnancy she was ready to combine them both! Mrs. W was a total trooper. I believe we had something like 4 outfit changes and lots of getting up and down on the floor, but she never once slowed down even though I know she has been ready for her little man to get here for weeks! She looked absolutely fabulous and enjoyed a little staycation at Hotel Duval with her hubby after her session. A perfect treat for a momma to be! Check out her gorgeous images below…

Alana Wins! | Tallahassee Bridal Glamour & Boudoir Photography

posted in: Glamour, Session Spotlight

Some of you may have heard about the HUGE all inclusive wedding give away from Hotel Duval. I was honored to become a sponsor for such an event at my favorite Hotel! When I heard them announce this winners, Alana and Paul of Tallahassee, I couldn’t help but get emotional. Her whole family was there, everyone was crying, and this young couple could not look more excited! They so deserve this prize! Alana is an amazing and strong young woman. From my conversations with her during our session it’s overly apparent to me that Paul is already a fantastic and selfless partner to her. I encourage you to head over to the Weddings by Duval site and read their story. It is incredibly touching.

Did I mention that Alana’s images came out gorgeous?! This girl can WORK a camera! She is, of course, naturally stunning and after her make over and a few posing tips she turned into a regular super model! By the time her big day comes around she’s going to have been photographed so many times by so many of the top photographers in Tally, she’s going to feel like a celebrity! I’m happy to be a part of the paparazzi. Congratulations again to her and Paul!

Between the Sheets Lingerie is Sheer Joy

Between the Sheets Lingerie is Sheer Joy

posted in: Lingerie to Inspire, Vendor Spotlight

We are always on the lookout for new ideas for our clients. We spend hours window shopping online to find new ideas to inspire those ladies who are looking for a little something different when it comes to picking their wardrobe for their sessions. We came across Between the Sheets Lingerie, delicate, lifestyle inspired lingerie designed by Layla L’obatti, a graduate of NYC’s Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). Each piece that we’ve come across seems intricate and unique. The fabrics and textures look like a second skin. We especially love the Hi-Waist Knicker selection because it has that vintage charm without going totally retro. Here’s a few of our favorites from the BTS line shown in no particular order:


And just in time for time for the holidays, they’ve posted a nice little gift guide for you last minute shoppers out there…

Ready to shop? We’ve got a little holiday bonus for you from Layla herself! Enjoy 20% off with coupon code “SHEBOUDOIR” now through the end of the year! Happy Holidays and happy shopping!

So maybe the word boudoir scares you just a little. I mean, it does mean quite literally,  “bedroom” and while the idea of having a day of beauty pampering with a makeover and photo shoot sounds appealing, maybe the idea of you in lingerie and being photographed isn’t your cup of tea. Well consider this – you don’t have to pose in lingerie to feel glamorous. You don’t have rock the highest heels to feel beautiful. You don’t have to show tons of skin to be sexy. Yes, you, enjoying a relaxing, pampering makeover and photo session can be all of these things. Every woman should have a favorite picture of themselves. Not just a head shot, but something that shows off their personality and essence. Something that they look at and feel confident in saying, this is me and I am BEAUTIFUL! And hey, who doesn’t want a super gorgeous photo for Facebook? It’s about time that the guy who sat behind you in 6th grade Math class found out what he missed out on, am I right?

So meet my friend Tassy. A sassy, beautiful super mom who has everything under control, or at least always looks like she does. I worked with Tassy on one of these Glamour Sessions (yes I used the word GLAMOUR – don’t be afraid) and her images turned out absolutely stunning. In fact, I don’t even want to say any more, let me show them off!

Kristen Ledlow Experiences She Boudoir | Tallahassee Boudoir Photography

Kristen Ledlow Experiences She Boudoir | Tallahassee Boudoir Photography

posted in: Private Sessions, Video

We were recently featured on ABC 27’s The Good News Show with Kristen Ledlow. Kristen had her own private She Boudoir session the day before at Hotel Duval here in Tallahassee so she could get the She Boudoir experience first hand. I’m so happy that I got to meet her before the interview because it really helped me get the TV appearance jitters out! We contacted each other off and on all week about her upcoming session and she filled out our little survey so I could get to know her better. I really wanted to customize it to Kristen and make the shoot more personal. She of course is the resident sports caster at ABC 27 and a huge sports fan, so I wanted to incorporate that somehow without going over the top. I asked her to bring a few sporty items and we went to work! Kristen came up with the idea to bring a favorite swimsuit and combine it with a luxurious robe and pearls for her first look. She also brought a much more casual, “girl next door” sporty look with her off the shoulder T-shirt and boy short combo in her next look. I love the contrast between her outfits and how they both were pieces she was really comfortable in for the session.

Check out the highlight reel from our session below!


I can’t believe I didn’t mention this mask already! I got this beautiful Venetian mask from Kanvas Beauty in Midtown. They have a few of these gorgeous masks that are just too swanky to pass up!

I loved working with Kristen and am so pleased that she loves her photos. Watch our interview below to hear Kristen describe her experience with She Boudoir at Hotel Duval.
