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.

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.”

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 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.

The Stunning Miss K | Orange County Boudoir | Grace and Lace Boudoir

She's stunning, she's the sweetest, and she SERIOUSLY knocked her session out of the park!  Like, WAY out there! She came to the studio as a gift for her soon to be husband and, of course, herself. She had recently lost some weight but claimed she wasn't quite her goal weight yet, but she was ready to do a session anyway. I love that she didn't wait because all too often, later becomes never.  If you always wait until the "perfect" time, you'll realize that it's never coming.    

We started her session with a sweet and soft, white bra and panty set but ended it with more seductive pieces.  I love seeing the transformations of our clients from the beginning of their shoots to the end! Our clients are AWESOME! Her images just make me so happy.

I cannot say enough about Sarah and Jeni! They are truly so amazing at what they do. I decided on boudoir photos as a gift for my husband on our wedding day. I was extremely nervous and researched around a lot until I came across [them]. 

The website alone was so informative and made me feel better about what to expect. Once I met Sarah and Jeni all my nerves began to leave. They make you feel so comfortable and confident about yourself. They know what they are doing and I couldn't be happier with the photos and neither could my husband. He loved them. Probably the best present I ever gave him. I have already told several friends considering doing a boudoir session and I would recommend them to anyone. 

Overall, it was an awesome experience. Thank you so much Sarah and Jeni!

Thank you for trusting us, Miss K! And for seriously bringing your most seductive A game! :) 

Just do it already!

This blog post is for all the ladies who are wanting to do a boudoir session but have been too nervous to just pull the trigger.  You know, the ones who say "someday" or "after I lose 10 pounds" - JUST DO IT ALREADY! Why wait?!? Why not just say "YES! I am going to do something for myself?!" which is then a gift for him, too??  Did someone say Christmas??!

In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make.

We make this process as easy as it can be for you.  We help with prepping for your sessions; whether its with your wardrobe selection or sending helpful tips/tricks for skin & hair beforehand and also after the session itself with helping you select your images.  You are not on your own at all with us! Turn your nervousness into excitement.  If you're a follower on any of our social media pages, you've heard me say time and time again, the first email is the hardest.  Once you book, we'll help guide you every step of the way.  Why? Because it's exactly how we want to be treated.     

Just a teaser of this Miss K's boudoir experience ... I seriously can't wait to share this one!

The best choice you can make

Miss T is a woman full of life & faith, a woman who has had her fair share of struggles in life but it hasn't stopped her or even slowed her down. The instant we met her, we INSTANTLY liked her; she gave an air of gentleness and kindness.  We loved having her in the studio and I loved her curves and how she owned them! 

In her own words, here's what she had to say about her experience ...

Hands down I had such a great experience doing my photo shoot with Jen and Sarah. I was nervous before getting there. Once I was there both Jen and Sarah made me feel so comfortable that I enjoyed every minute and did not worry about anything else. My makeup was done so beautifully. I felt like the most beautiful woman in the world. I will say my self confidence has improved greatly. When I went back to view my photos, all I could think and say was “WOW” is that me! This was one of the best choices that I made. Complete satisfaction with every step of the process. Jen and Sarah defiantly (sp) know what they are doing and are very good at their job.
