Outfit Options!

Jessie approached me about having a photo session. Like many clients, she wanted some boudoir photos, but also some photos in regular clothes that she could share publicly. I loved the variety of outfits she brought with her – we had so much fun settling on what to wear and where to use each outfit!

 Those eyes!

Those eyes!

Her hair and makeup by Barry Beauty was so amazing! I sure hope she did something fun after her session since she was looking extra beautiful!


Jessie was awesome to work with. She was laid back and up for anything. I could tell she’d been practicing in the mirror and really knew her facial expressions and what looks good in photos.


While we were having fun with different outfits, we decided to play around with a veil I keep in the studio. Even though Jessie is not a bride-to-be currently, she was up for trying something different. And it was fun for me knowing this was the first time she’s EVER tried on anything even remotely wedding related.

I absolutely love the mood of these shots. I’m starting to really dig progression shots, especially for albums! They are a great way to show movement. My favorite is to use them in a fun, flirty way like progressing from a tied robe, to an untied robe hanging open, to tossing it on the floor.

As the sun was setting, we couldn’t resist going outside for another beautiful evening at the goat farm.

I wanted to share some of Jessie’s photos to remind and encourage you to think outside the box on outfits. I love giving you the opportunity to have a progression of outfits as well as some fully-clothed options that can still be sexy, but also be perfectly OK to share.
