Model Releases ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

Hi Friends!! I just wanted to go over model releases with you guys real quick … so there is absolutely no confusion when it comes to YOUR boudoir session. We NEVER work with paid models. Each and every one of our clients are paying clients. We never want anybody to feel obligated to share their photos, if you would rather they remain private, we completely understand. After all, this is a very intimate and private type of photography we are talking about here. Many of our clients feel so confidently about their photos that they are excited to share them - whether it’s a full release or a partial release. Here are the differences with the different options:

FULL RELEASE

Please share my images online on any platform. This option is for those clients that are excited to show their images to the world! This option allows us to share it on our Grace and Lace Boudoir Facebook page, our private group, Instagram, and Pinterest. They will be used in advertising, marketing and any other place where our images are featured! 

PARTIAL RELEASE

There are different variations for this on our release. You can choose to just have anonymous images shown or be specific about where you would like for it to be shown (i.e. just our FB group or just our website)

NO RELEASE

This is what you would check if you do not want ANY of your images online, print, etc. You want them to remain 100% private.

We completely understand that boudoir photography is very personal and we respect your privacy. We will never share your images online or in print without your written permission with this image release, so rest assured. We never pressure you either way. Some women are excited to share all of them and some may not want to due to their comfort level, or job, etc.

NSFW - there’s the warning for you. This session was so. fire.

“My experience with Grace and Lace Boudoir has been PHENOMENAL!”

“Jeni and Sarah are so sweet and patient, I'm really glad I got the opportunity to work with them. They did not hesitate to answer any and all questions I had, and they provided a plethora of emails with detailed information on what to expect, how to prepare for my session, and what products are available for purchase.”

“Seeing how STUNNING my pictures came out has given me a huge confidence boost and I can't wait to show the photos to my partner! I definitely recommend Jeni and Sarah for anyone looking to do a boudoir photoshoot. Their sincere sweetness and positivity make, what can be a very vulnerable experience, something beautiful. “

I can’t tell you how much I love it when a client comes in all tatted up with funky hair color to boot! I love that they use their body as their canvas for their art. It’s so much fun to shoot! So when Miss A walked in our door, you know I was excited as hell to photograph her!

“YYYAAASSS!! That is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about Jeni and Sarah.”

“Their work is beautiful and they’re providing us with much more than pictures, so much more. If you're feeling self conscious and hesitant to invest in yourself, please know you're in great hands and you'll want every image they show you.”

“Thank you ladies for instilling a confidence that I didn't know I had.”

Bridal Boudoir Doesn't Have to be White ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

The minute this uber sexy bride walked in our doors for her bridal boudoir, her energy matched mine exactly. That doesn’t happen all that often. With some clients, they walk in, and they’re nervous and not super chatty at first. Totally fine! I’ve got enough words for the two of us, so you don’t even have to talk if you truly don’t want to. (Though nobody has ever done that in 6 years!) But this infectiously sweet girl came in as bubbly as me and was ready. She wanted the dark & moody images that embraced her sexuality. Her wedding was just this past Saturday and I can’t wait to hear about her groom’s reaction to his gift.

In her own words:

I am SO happy I found Jeni & Sarah... they are AMAZING!! I decided to book a shoot through Grace and Lace for my fiance's wedding day gift, and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made!

Whenever I pose for pictures by myself I usually get super awkward and the pictures turn out horrible.. so I was pretty nervous about a boudoir shoot. The ladies at Grace & Lace made all of that go away. The second I walked through the door, they made me feel so comfortable and walked me through the whole process so I knew what to expect. During the shoot they are very technical and tell you exactly how to pose, so you're never stuck feeling/looking awkward in front of the camera.

Their photography style is a perfect mix of sexy, dark/moody, and classy. They capture all the best angles and lighting to make sure you look and feel your best. I absolutely LOVE the way my photos turned out, and I know my fiance is going to love them too!! It's been so hard not showing him before the wedding day!

I'm so thankful I found Grace and Lace, I honestly couldn't imagine doing a boudoir shoot any other way! I promise if you decide to book through them you won't regret it!!

The Ultimate Groom's Gift ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

More and more of our clients lately have been brides. We get it and we absolutely LOVE bridal boudoir. I know that I'm a bit biased, but I think it's honestly one of the best wedding gifts you can give because it's a gift that keeps on giving. You get the amazing experience and confidence boost, he gets the album - and this one is actually for both of you as well, since you'll wanna look at it over and over through the years, too) :) The desire for a bridal boudoir session can be celebrating looking the best you've ever looked but - more importantly - it's celebrating the best you've ever FELT. It's the gorgeous, confident glow from within that will help keep the spark alive and well in a marriage. Send us an email if you want to spoil your groom (and yourself!) for your wedding day. Remember, it takes about 4 weeks from start to finish to have your products in hand - so don't wait until last minute. But even if you are a super procrastinator, we can still help you out ;) 

Miss S's Boudoir Experience ::: Orange County ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

Are you kidding me with her pink hair, nose ring, AND tattoos (oh, and even glasses in a few)?? Gah, she's beautiful and was so much fun to have in front of my lens! I also love that she loved her makeup. We take great pride in making sure you are happy at EVERY POINT in the session. We want you to love your hair/makeup as well as the photos. We don't want you looking back and feeling regret because it doesn't look like your vision. You get to decide whether you want sultry, dramatic, or natural makeup.  You get to decide whether you'd like your hair straight, curly, or wavy. This is YOUR shoot and your confidence is boosted when you look like what you envisioned for your shoot. 

This client was a little hesitant during hair/makeup because she's had a session where the makeup made her look 10-20 years older than what she is. But her she was wowed (just like every other client) when she saw herself here! Sarah has an amazing talent and it shows with all of our clients. She's not afraid of any special requests, either. Don't be afraid to be specific. Vegan only makeup? She can handle it. Skin allergies? PLEASE let her know! A little thicker brow? Just let her know!  

I never felt more sexy ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

When a review like this comes in, I'm so humbled. I know what we do is important but it stops me mid-stride every time I hear a client echo my words. I know that they truly understand - this isn't just a gift for someone else (even if it starts out that way!) 

 

"Jeni and Sarah are my all time heroes. I am very self conscious women and often hide from the camera. When I saw a friend and some amazing pictures of her I couldn't believe it!  what a set of balls she had! I wanted so bad to be that brave. So I followed the Facebook page with absolute admiration. One night after a glass of wine, another absolutely fearless and Hott women showed up in the page! I held my breath and booked my shoot. Couple months later, endless outfits and non-stop feelings of self doubt I was standing at their door.  No going back! I walked in, still couldn't breathe! But after 5 minuets of Jenis pep talk, a glass of wine and my hair being glammed up, I knew I had made myself worry over nothing. The photo shoot went without me having to think twice, the girls listened to my requests all while Jeni walked me through her vision of me. 
I was able to look at my photos one week later and wanted to cry. I looked amazing! I never felt more sexy and proud looking at my photos and I couldn't wait to show them off to my Husband! 
I absolutely recommend you go for it. These girls allowed me to open up and have some confidence! I will be back in a few year!

Miss H ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

As a woman, you have so much power at your fingertips. You are a gift, a blessing and you have a powerful voice to be heard. You are a force to be reckoned with and never let anyone take that power away from you. Go out and make a positive impact this week - don’t let you stop you. 

Also, white sheets are really high on my list of favorite outfits.... Gah, they are just sexy!!

 

Miss Ms Super Steamy Boudoir ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

I am completely smitten with these images of Miss R! She wasn't afraid to trust me and as a result, we got some amazingly steamy photos. She originally intended for these to be a gift for her husband, but just like everyone else, she realized this is JUST as much, if not MORE SO, a gift for themselves.

You have permission to be both an incredible, giving, nurturing mother and a sexy WOMAN. Don’t lose sight of the woman you were before you had kids - the two CAN coexist together. You are allowed to have ME time - time that you’re not spending taking care of everyone’s needs. Invest in yourself - don’t let happiness feel like a foreign concept to you. It’s all about balance.
