In February 2012 I teamed up with The Girlfriend Guide to Zurich and Alexandra from Glo Cosmetics to put together a boudoir taster event. I photographed 18 women in just one weekend! The response was overwhelming and I have to say it is one of the most fun and fulfilling experiences I have had as a a photographer.
The experience was fantastic – prosecco on arrival at the Presidential Suite of The Renaissance Hotel, the most amazing desserts provided by baked by B. We kicked off with short introductions where I talked about my approach to boudoir photography and gave the ladies posing tips. Then we selected the ladies’ outfits from what they had brought with them and go to work with make up with Alexandra from Glo Cosmetics and then a private photography session for each lady in the bedroom of the suite.
Most women were nervous to start with but finished the session with brimming with laughter, smiles and a new found confidence.
After the first day, I was on such a high that I just couldn’t sleep!
The response to the images was even more pleasing and a few of the participants have very kindly agreed to share their feedback and a few images… watch out for them on the blog soon!!
