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!”

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.

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!!

Spicy Hot Anonymous Session ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

This stunning client - I don’t know that I can say enough. I’ve personally known her for a little while and I was so excited when she reached out to us to do a session! She’s an independent, fierce, firecracker of a woman and it totally came through all of her photos. We’re only sharing the anonymous ones with you but trust me when I tell you, the others are even more spicy!!

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 R's Second Boudoir Session ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

This is Miss R's second time that she has been in our Orange County boudoir studio for a session. ((you might even remember her session from just 7 months ago! https://graceandlaceboudoir.com/blog/on-my-bucket-list-orange-county-boudoir)) She is the epitome of grace, confidence, gorgeousness, and kindness.  I loved the lingerie (and lack of ;) that she brought with her. She wanted something completely different for her session this time around. She recently started on a healthy eating program and felt the best she's felt in a long time, so she wanted to commemorate that!  And paired up with the hair and makeup that Sarah did, yeah, I'm DYING!  What I loved too was that she decided she would do a set of photos with very natural makeup for her husband who loves her fresh-faced but then she knew she wanted the glam look for herself. So we did both. A boudoir session with us is customizable - it's NOT cookie cutter, one size fits all around here.

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.
