Boudoir photography is the artful capture of the beauty of the human form. This gallery is of a more intimate nature.
“Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.” Rainer Maria Rilke.
The spring rain came down quickly and then receded as fast as it had arrived. Bronwyn and I decided the photo shoot was still going to happen. By the time we made it to the first location we had a double rainbow (yes, for real) and bright sunshine.
The chalk angel wings were inspired by this photo shoot that I had seen and loved in Flare Canada 2010 with the gorgeous and lively Coco Rocha.
I’m sure we were a sight to behold shooting under an overpass and balancing as the concrete wall was on a steep angle! All in the name of photography and art.
The attire Bronwyn picked out had a very glamorous and vintage feel. The above one reminds me of a Hollywood starlet from the 1940’s.
Angel wings and happened upon bird graffiti motif? Perfect. In a lot of ways the sense of freedom and airiness represent a new chapter for Bronwyn.
There is something beautiful about being comfortable in one’s own skin.
A bit of whimsy and surrealism never hurt anyone.
We had the benefit of natural light, which is flattering whether shooting indoors or outside. Just before the shoot Bronwyn brought a suitcase full of wardrobe options and we had fun figuring out the look and feel that she desired to be captured.
Boudoir photography is about showing your inner and outer beauty, and Bronwyn’s character comes through in this collection.
Thank you Bronwyn for your graceful nature and strength.
