The dream tutu

When I asked Miss K to come in and test some new ideas for the studio, the wardrobe we picked was your standard ideas. Lots of black. A cheeky t-shirt. Fabulous boots.

But after sifting through her bag, I found a small tulle skirt and thought to pair it with her pretty burgandy bralette. A few shots in, my wheels started turning and I remembered my gorgeous ombre tulle skirt from the mother-daughter shoot.

Presenting arms full of tulle, she giggled and said, “Oh my god! My dream tutu.”

This is what we came up with:

Sister Beauty Shoot - Lavish Boudoir

"She's my sister.  Break her heart and I'll break your face."  - Unknown Okay, I was going to post a syrupy sweet quote about sisters, but this is a little more accurate.  These are some seriously feisty girls.  Adeana and I like to keep things running smoothly; we have a system that works.  And then you get girls like these.  Ha! Enthusiastic, sarcastic, energetic and a tad wild do not even begin to describe these girls.  They're the type of girl to sign the other up for a reality show without telling her.  I finally had to separate them in order to get more than just laughing expressions.  Each is so beautiful and they love each other like crazy.  What a blessing it is to be a sister and to have one.

I'm in Albuquerque now, but we had a quick assignment to Little Rock.  It's always a priority to find an amazing salon because I'm pretty freaking picky about my hair.  When I started googling my favorite brands, Red Beauty Lounge popped up.  From the moment I stepped in, I was hooked. Their huge chalkboard wall, beautiful product display and stylish staff had me at hello.  Amy Hester has her shit together.  What a phenomenal business owner.  She's as talented as she is gorgeous.  I absolutely had to photograph them.  I set them up near a tiny window on the second floor with a bathroom door as a backdrop and got to work photographing each girl.  Glamorous, right? I'm pretty sure they thought I was crazy. This is just a few of the pictures that I had handy on my computer, but I was too eager to post.  So here they are!beauty headshots by Lavish Boudoir for Red Beauty Lounge in Little Rock, Arkansasbeauty headshots for Red Beauty Lounge in Little Rock, Arkansasbeauty headshots by Lavish Boudoir for Red Beauty Lounge in Little Rock, Arkansas

Oh this light in Albuquerque! It's gorgeous. So bright and clean and unfiltered. I don't have studio yet, but I can only go so many days without getting someone in front of the camera. So I called up a past client and told her I needed her pretty face. Thank goodness for loyal clients/friends. B even managed to get away from her scrumptious baby boy for a couple hours for a little pampering. Lucky momma. Beauty by Lavish Boudoir - albuquerque, new mexico - 2015

Miss J has done so many shoots with us.  You can see her photos in our marketing materials and at these links (and probably more I couldn't dig up): This is one of my favorite beauty pictures I've ever taken.  Thank you to Makeup by Adeana for such a dramatic look that brought to life exactly what I imagined.
