Salem Boudoir Studio | teal.

I have a new backdrop in my studio. Its teal and I love it. Seriously, how beautiful does her peaches and cream skin look against this color? 

This session was shot hybrid (film and digital) using a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon EOS-3 with expired Fuji Superia 800 film, scanned by The FIND Lab.

Salem Boudoir Studio | casual studio session

I love that she brought her favorite book, her comfy socks, and 
wore her glasses. I also love when I get repeat boudoir clients! This spunky woman had a 
boudoir session in 2012 (you can see that session HERE), but she went for a more 
glam/dolled up look. This time, she wanted something more casual and 
something that more accurately represented herself on a daily basis. 
I think we nailed it.

Salem Boudoir Photographer | moody.

Like most photographers, I am in love with light. I love many kinds of light, but when it comes to boudoir, this strong dramatic light is my favorite. It is what moves me as an artist. So, when the sun started blaring through the windows during this in-home session, I about squealed. I mean, seriously, just look at these images. 

 So, while I love shooting in my Salem studio, I also love shooting in client's homes. It's often a little bit of a challenge, which is fun for me. It also makes the session instantly personalized for the client. Their bedding, their walls, their windows, their comfort zone. I often have people say that they don't think their home is suitable for a boudoir session. Either, it's too messy, or they don't think there is enough light. First of all, messy is not an issue. I can work around the mess. I have three kids. My house is usually a mess. I get it, and I won't  judge you. I promise! As for the light, yes, it's possible for some houses to have poor light (mine actually doesn't have great lighting), but more often than not, a small window is all we need to get some beautiful and artistic shots. If you'd like to have a boudoir shoot in your own  home, but aren't sure if it'll work, I'm happy to meet you at your home so we can take a look and go over all of the questions you may have about your session.

Salem Boudoir Studio | confidence.

Confidence. It's the sexiest thing you can wear…and this beautiful mama wears it so beautifully. We had SO much fun doing this session in my studio. Yes, she's 
stunningly beautiful and voluptuous, but it's her confidence that made her session 
so easy and what makes her images sing. Shot with a combination of film, I am 
absolutely in LOVE with these images. 
In. love.
