Anonymous Bridal Boudoir ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

Come take a peek into this stunning, anonymous bridal boudoir. Just because it is a gift for your wedding day, definitely doesn’t mean it has to be all white or with your vail. By all means, if that’s what you want to do, let’s do it … it just doesn’t HAVE to be. You could do blue like this stunner below. And nude. ;)

Whatever you end up deciding, let it be something you’ll be thrilled about later on, too.

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!”

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!

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 M's Super Steamy Session ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

I am completely smitten with these images of Miss M! 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.

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

Ummmm, hellooooo gorgeous!! This beautiful, curvy girl was amazing to work with! She was fun, kind, VERY complimentary, and confident. Her beauty on the outside is very obvious but her beauty on the inside (where it REALLY counts) is unmatched. 

Even happier than I could have imagined ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

"Sarah and Jeni are fabulous!! I went into this experience nervous, not knowing exactly how I felt about it, and very self-conscious of my body but these two made me feel right at home instantly! Sarah did my hair and makeup beautifully and as I had requested on the questionnaire prior to the shoot date. Jeni is amazing behind the camera! She helped guide me through the entire shoot and made me feel more than comfortable. I was confident the pictures would turn out great but even happier than I could have imagined with how they all turned out. They are absolutely beautiful and I owe it all to Jeni and Sarah! They are pros and I highly recommend this experience and with these two to anyone who is considering it!"
