Nudity, Daisy Dukes, and Stormtrooper Helmets :::: Orange County Boudoir :::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

I love when clients don’t take themselves too seriously. Miss S came in for a shoot as a gift for her soon-to-be-hubby. She knew she wanted sultry images but she also knew that their personalities were more fun & silly and she wanted to incorporate that. So she brought her fiance’s stormtrooper helmet. When I first pulled it out of the bag, I gave her a quizzical look… to which she responded, laughingly, “I know it’s cheesy but that’s what I’m going for!” I can’t get mad at someone for knowing what they want and being realistic about the outcome. I knew right away the best and, honestly, the cheesiest, way to present it would be wearing it while nude. And so we did just that!

I promise you, lots of giggles and laughs ensued during those shots.

“Grace & Lace is the absolute best! I got a boudoir photoshoot done as a wedding present to my fiance and Jeni & Sarah surpassed all my expectations. They are professional, fun and overwhelmingly talented. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting to get this done!” ~Miss S

Want to know what it's like in front of the lens? ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like in front of my lens? Let this client share her experience with you... “I am SO glad that I stumbled upon Grace and Lace! I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to do a boudoir shoot for several months, and then I had to find the team I thought I could trust, and that I could afford! If you are on the fence about doing a shoot, or are just trying to decide who to go with, I cannot recommend Grace and Lace enough. I am so camera shy, and am usually the one behind the camera on family trips and such, so I was very nervous and unsure of what to expect. But the experience from start to finish was so perfect. Jeni and Sarah are so professional, but also just super friendly, welcoming, and fun! 
The day of my photo shoot, I was greeted by a welcome sign on the door with my name on it, and we got right to work on hair and makeup. I felt like every second of my time was utilized to the fullest, and that I was kept in the know about the whole process. While doing hair and makeup, Jeni went through the pieces that I'd brought with me to decide what outfits we would shoot, and the whole time we were talking and getting to know more about each other. I LOVED this, because it felt like I was building a friendship and a trust that made the whole day feel so easy and comfortable. Jeni is a PHENOMENAL photographer, and coach. She obviously knows her stuff, isn't afraid of the silly and awkward, and her work is absolutely stunning. I am not sure what I expected my photos to look like, but let me tell you, they are so much more than I ever could have hoped for. I loved that I was able to view my photos in an online viewing that Jeni walked me through, since I'm not a Huntington Beach local, so she saved me the drive! She is so great at walking through the whole process of selecting the perfect photos (which trust me, is SO HARD! They're all amazing!) and she never made me feel pressured to buy more than I said I wanted or could afford. 
Long story short, if you haven't already, book with Grace and Lace. I'm already trying to find an excuse to book again!”

Blue hair, don't care ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

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.”

Boudoir Slideshows ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

One of my favorite parts about the entire session is your viewing. Shooting is fantastic, of course, and we definitely have a blast doing it but when you actually get to SEE yourself on the screen - yeah, utter amazement. Yup - that really IS you on the screen. That is your hard work, your beauty, your personality, the real YOU coming through the photos. I love watching my clients have this revelation about themselves. We start every session with a slideshow, just to whet your appetite. It's where just a handful of your images are set to music and you can watch your photos come to life. Your breath will be taken away - I promise!
