Rented Location Couples Boudoir Session
Cedar Rapids / Iowa City / Eastern Iowa Couples Boudoir Photographer
Whew! December was intense for me you guys. Coming back from my break with this couples session for two dear friends of mine visiting from out of state was just what my creative soul needed. I always love working with couples in a special way. Unlike when it’s just me and a client alone and I direct most of the posing, I get to sit back a bit more and fade into the background with couples. At the same time I’m totally not afraid to get all up in their business for the sake of a good shot, especially if I’m already friends with the couple!
What I love the most about couples sessions is taking the time at the beginning to do individual shots of each of them before getting them together for the rest of the session. Usually women are more comfortable being photographed so I always start with them! Their partner usually gets more comfortable as they watch their significant other popping their booty for photos. By the time we start doing couples shots they’re more comfortable and forget I’m there!
Being friends, but also former clients two times over made this session near and dear to my heart. I got to visit Miss E when I went to Virginia this summer and I’m so stoked I was able to photograph her and her boo together while they were visiting Iowa! Miss E was actually my FIRST EVER BOUDOIR CLIENT! Yep! In October of 2017 when I was not even 6 months into doing photography she asked me, “do you do sexy photos?” to which I replied, “I mean, I don’t not do sexy photos?”
Protip: don’t do what I did, boudoir is NOT something that is easy or can be picked up without knowledge of posing and I got SERIOUSLY lucky that I didn’t mess anything up, and spent months afterwords learning hands-on and online before doing more sessions!
As a photographer, I seriously love all my clients. However, those special clients that keep coming back and investing in you financially, emotionally as friends and clients are so near and dear to my heart. I have a few that are like this and I can tell you, your second and third sessions are no where near as scary as your first session. I’ve had lots of people do a session and come back to do my other session or a couples session and they’re always so much more laid back and know what to expect!
