dans le boudoir with l

This boudoir session with Lia was part of my Special Occasion video project.

Lia is an an actor, model, and overall lovely person. She shines in images both moving and still. It was such a treat to photograph her and have her as part of my project. This series of portraits is a dreamy and laid-back boudoir session for a free-spirited young lady. We shot in the home of my friends, Jordan and Christina, and it had the loveliest natural light. I've always been drawn to a style of boudoir that is brighter and softer, less formal and prescriptive. Most of all, it's important to me to tease out a woman's natural, luminous beauty and true personality, rather than coax her into tropes and poses of traditional boudoir that don't feel true to who she is. In Lia's case, I wanted to show off her effervescent personality and grace. She made it easy.

Lia, I wish you all the best of luck with everything you're dreaming of, and I hope I get to photograph you again someday in the near future!
