Tonight, I took Family Portraits at Historic Smithville Village. The little ones kept me on my toes, but you know what the best part of a family portrait is? Those candid moments in between all of the attempted, posed portraits. I say attempted, because often times we want these picture perfect moments, but life just happens. Kids need to be kids. They need to run, they need to stop and water the flowers, or pretend to anyway. They need to ride a cement duck, and they need to take time for kisses. Daddy has to tie shoes, and babies want to run toward keys when they jingle. Photo ops with your Great Grandparents, become split seconds in time where these happy babies just want to look at them, and play with them, and smile because they’re being held by some of the most amazing people on Earth. These moments, may not be posed, but they’re real, they’re raw, and they’re a part of our legacy. Each second that goes by, these babies will be closer to school, and sports, and dances, and all the things that kids do when they grow older. Take the time to stop… and enjoy your babies. It’s okay to let them run!

I love to take Family Portraits at Historic Smithville Village. I live not even 5 minutes away. I adore the sunlight that comes through the trees at 7pm on a cool spring evening, and I love how the flowers are just the perfect distraction for the kids. It’s quiet and peaceful, and is just perfect for a family session. If you are looking for the perfect location, you’ve found it! Now we just need to get your session booked, so you too can document a piece of your legacy!

Family Beach Photography in Longport, NJ is always my favorite! Longport is such an amazing small town. Not a lot of people know about it and the families that visit keep to themselves. The beaches are always clean, and it’s not one of those super crowded shore towns, so having your photos taken on the beach during the summer in Longport, aren’t a hassle! They’re peaceful and very relaxing! Not only that, there are SO many amazing things to do at the Shore in the summer! You can make an entire family evening out of your session. There is Lucy The Elephant, a historic landmark in Margate just a few streets over, as well as some of the very best restaurants! To name a few, some of my favorites are Ventura’s Greenhouse Restaurant in Margate, Steve & Cookie’s By the Bay also in Margate and Domenico’s in Ventnor!

Creating memories with your images should be the top priority! Before that of course, you should always chat with your photographer on what to wear! There are so many options and I can guide you on what works best for your family, and of course, you can wear those stunning outfits out on the town, to dinner (and of course, the boardwalk!)

Summer time is a super popular time for beach portraits, so if you would like to schedule your Family Beach Photography in Longport, NJ reach out to me as soon as possible!

When my daughter told me she wanted Birthday Portraits at the Smithville Mansion for her 8th birthday my heart stopped.

My little princess was growing up and she wanted to be followed around by a professional photographer while wearing a gorgeous dress and high heels. Good thing her Mama Bear is a professional photographer. I was honored to be able to photographer her, and make her laugh, of course I was crying behind the camera. We really did have a lot of fun though. She plans on having one large photo printed in a white matt so her friends can sign the matt at her birthday party. She is definitely a girl who knows what she wants! I couldn’t be more proud. The Smithville Mansion is gorgeous. It really is one of my favorite places to visit. It’s historic, and so well maintained. It’s perfectly set up for weddings, events, engagements and of course the casual photo session with a soon to be 8 year old!

If you would like to have your son or daughters Birthday Portraits at the Smithville Mansion, reach out to me today and schedule your session! Or if you are recently engaged, or going to propose (this is certainly a wonderful place to do it!), reach out to me as well! I would be more than happy to document all of your memories for you!

Photography for me, isn’t just about holding a camera and taking a photo. I have a serious passion for this. It’s my life. A day without my camera is like a day without air. I can’t breathe without it. It’s always on my side, always with me, and ready for any moment that will happen. When I get the opportunity to photography something special in someone life, or lives, I am just so humbled and honored to be the person that you trust to capture and create these moments for you. As for my daughter, she put all of her trust into me, that I would be able to document her Birthday Portraits at the Smithville Mansion exactly the way she always dreamt of, and better. That is how everyone should think when they hire a professional. Dreams become real life, and real life can be preserved. These pieces are our history, they are our legacy, and one day our children will hang on to these memories, and pass them down to their own. Don’t just pass these moments by, hold them by the hand, and allow me to capture your legacy.

What to wear for your boudoir session?

It’s a question I get asked all too many times. The answer to me, is simple. Wear what makes you feel good.

I can’t tell you how many times women hear the word boudoir, and think they HAVE to wear lingerie, something provocative, something sensual, something that shows off the parts they don’t love, or something that makes them feel uncomfortable. So, what to wear to your boudoir session should be a reflection on who you are, as a person, as a woman, and something that makes you feel comfortable! That something can be anything from a romper, to a comfy sweater, or a full on designer lingerie get up. Me personally, I want a boudoir session to feel sensual, happy and romantic. I want the woman to feel empowered and to embrace her femininity. Wearing things that are daring, but concealing, modern but classic. I want women to feel pampered and taken care of. This is not just a session, it’s a wonderful experience that every woman should experience and leave knowing they are gorgeous with self esteem higher than the universe!

I’ve decided to take to the internet and find a few pieces that I think are stunning. I tend to go for body suits with lots of lace and darker colors, I love straps and matching sets as well. Show your curves ladies, they look good on you!

Here are the things I found, with links below the images so you can purchase them if you would like.
(No, I am not receiving any affiliate commissions from these, I do not work for these websites or stores, I am just showing you what I like and think would work in a boudoir session.)
(All Images below are not my images, they were found on the internet with links directing to their origin) 


 

BODYSUITS: I love bodysuits. I think it’s because they remind me of dancers. I used to be a dancer, and I always felt good wearing one of these. They were tight, and always thinned out my stomach. They made my arms feel tight, they made my back look feminine, and they make me feel like I could just float. Not only that, but they elongate your legs. They give you something to play with, you can tug at these, you can hold the sleeves, you can play with the straps, you can hide areas that you aren’t in love with, but most of all you can feel confident with these. Also, if you aren’t a fan of your legs, we can just add a tulle skirt! Who doesn’t love a tulle skirt?

AMERICAN APPAREL – Cotton Spandex Long Sleeve Double U Bodysuit

AMERICAN APPAREL – 2×2 Rib Long Sleeve Cutout Bodysuit

AMERICAN APPAREL – 2×2 Rib U Back Bodysuit

AMERICAN APPAREL – Cotton Spandex Halter Bodysuit


 

LACE: I adore lace. I do. It looks so delicate and classic. I am convinced it looks good on everyone. The fancier the better. I always say when you are looking for something to wear for portraits, go big or go home. You want to step outside of your comfort zone, and you want to get creative. This is something you are investing in that  you may not do again and again, so be bold!
Bokeh_Love_Photography_Galloway_Professional_Photographer_4074.jpg

H&M – Lace Halterneck Bodysuit

H&M – Lace Bodysuit

H&M – Lace Push-up Bra


ROBES: Oh, robes. My favorite thing to wear. I am in now way joking. I love robes. They make me feel so feminine, and leave a lot for the mind to think about. They’re sexy, they’re sensual, and more importantly, they make US feel wonderful because we are hiding everything. Robes come in so many different styles too. They can be solid, or made of lace, they can be cotton, or they can be wool. Which ever you decide to go with, you can take it off entirely, drape it down your shoulder, or keep it on for your entire session. Again, boudoir is not about sex and showing your goods. It is about sensuality and feeling empowered, beautiful and raising your self esteem. Your partner, of course will be happy to see the images as well!

ADORE ME – Chloe Plus

ADORE ME – Ellis Plus


STRAPS: STRAPS ARE SO MUCH FUN! It doesn’t matter what your body shape, straps will grab any curve and make you want to look! It creates shapes that were not there, and minimizes shapes that you do not want there. Straps are the ultimate brain game and they work so very well! Not only that, they’re so stinking cute! Who doesn’t want to wear these? I know I do! What to wear for your boudoir session? These! These right here!

EMBROIDERY: Check out number 2 in this lineup! This is an embroidered, strappy, bodysuit! Talk about perfection! This is a 2017 trend that will hit the charts! Flowers are pretty, but prettier when embroidered!

ASOS – Ann Summers Valentines Love Passion Body

ASOS – New Look Floral Embroidered Body

ASOS – Florie Eyelash Lace Strappy Body

ASOS – New Look Plus Lace Strappy Balcony Bra


LACE BODYSUITS: By now, you know I love lace and bodysuits. Black is slimming but Plum is right behind with a dramatic edge. It’s slimming, it’s rich, and so very feminine!

ASOS – Courtney Lace High Apex High Leg Thong Underwire Body

ASOS – Ultimo Cassiopiea Fuller Bust Body

ASOS – CURVE Bailey High Leg Lace Bodysuit

ASOS – CURVE SHAPEWEAR New Improved Fit Wear Your Own Bra Lace Bodysuit


MATCHING SETS: A well fitting matched set is like the icing on the cake! I highly recommend this as a safe outfit. White lingerie is a new 2017 trend and I think it will be a great one. Nothing is as beautiful as a pure white lingerie set.

ASOS – Curve Ferne Eyelash Lace Molded Set in Red

ASOS – City Chic Nocturne Lingerie Set


 

SPORTS BRAS: Yep. I said it. Sports Bras. Did I mention that you didn’t have to wear lingerie for a boudoir session to feel sexy? Let’s say you are a sporty girl, and you still want to feel sexy and feminine, but don’t feel comfortable in the thong and push up bra? Well, you don’t have to! Being feminine isn’t about wearing lace, or body suits. It’s about owning who you are, and being proud, happy, and feeling absolutely drop dead gorgeous! Rock it girl, be sexy, be sporty, and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t be sexy in a sports bra!
Bokeh_Love_Photography_Galloway_Professional_Photographer_4079.jpg

Nordstrom – Strappy Sports Bra

Nordstrom – Underwire Push-Up Sports Bra


BODY SUITS: Yes, You all know I love them by now, but these two are different. They look like you could almost (almost) wear them outside. They’re sexy, like I am talking Victoria’s Secret sexy. But they can still work in the boudoir! They’re sensual, and fun. You can glam them up, or glam them down. Whatever you decide, you have to admit, I’m on the right track here!

CHEMISE: Chemise, Baby doll, whatever you call it, this is a tummy pleaser. If you’ve just had a baby, or you don’t love your tummy, select this. You will not be sorry. It’s sexy, and you can still see your shape, you can still see your belly button, but it can be worn and you can still feel comfortable. I own a few of these myself, and I always feel gorgeous wearing them. Just make sure you try them on first and get the right size. If you buy them too large, they don’t look that flattering.

ASHLEY STEWART – SHEER MESH CHEMISE LINGERIE SET

FLYGIRL – Play-Bae Bodysuit – Green

URBANNOG – Mesh Striped Long Sleeve Bodysuit

Maybe you’re that cute kinda sexy that lays on the couch eating potato chips and your fiance thinks you’re the most amazing thing on earth… well, here is your ticket to happiness!

They can be dressed up or dressed down, and there is no need to get stuffy in some lingerie that will take far too long to get into when these can just be thrown on, and you feel like you’re at home! If you’re in to comfort and being cute and girly – this is it.
