My Shoot with Meredith | Arkansas Boudoir

[su_spacer]My Boudoir Experience with Meredith –[su_spacer] I knew immediately when I saw Meredith’s photos that I wanted to book her as my wedding photographer. There was something about her images that spoke to my heart and I knew she would capture our day beautifully. It wasn’t until I was planning my wedding with Meredith that I ran across Boudoir images that she had done. All I thought was “WOW”. If she could make me look half as beautiful as the women in her pictures I knew my fiancé would absolutely LOVE them! I immediately decided to book a Boudoir shoot as a gift to my fiancé on our wedding day. [su_spacer] [su_spacer] Prior to the shoot my friends would all ask me, “how on earth could you show your body in front of people?”, and “aren’t you so scared to be naked?!” All my life I have been proud of the size I am and the woman I am and I knew that if anyone could capture my true self it would be Meredith. Plus size, small size, any size, I wanted to prove to myself and anyone who saw my images that it doesn’t matter what size you are, you are beautiful!

Bucket List Boudoir | Arkansas Boudoir Photographers

I love boudoir photography because I get to meet and photograph so many unique and inspiring women.

Arkansas Boudoir – Boudoir Photoshop Retouching

Curious about how much of my work is photoshopped? Well, not that much. I try always to keep my clients looking like my clients. My goal for every shoot is NOT for you to look nothing like yourself. I want you to feel amazing in your own skin, but that said, sometimes our skin could use a little help. Personally, ever since I turned 30, I feel like a teenager again! Breakouts, oily skin - it's crazy and when I'm photographed I want that stuff minimized! When you come into my studio, the makeup is really what makes a transformation. Bold and smokey versus natural makes a huge difference in the end product and how your images look. Regardless of how we style your session, I always retouch the same way for every client. It's pretty simple and not a crazy, dramatic transformation like you might see some supermodels go through in fashion editorials. Here's my checklist: Remove blemishes Reduce under eye circles (I don't remove them completely because that looks unnatural and, well, fake! We all have a bit of shadow under our eyes) Smooth skin and even out skin tone Soften wrinkles (again, I don't completely remove these, but I reduce and soften) Enhance eyes Pump...

I enlisted the help of one of my favorite stylists and we put together a set for M. that was modern and 40's inspired. Here are a few of my favorites from her shoot:  ...
