Sparkling Nikki

This Florida beauty stopped by while she was in Wisconsin for work. We had such an amazing time working with her. She absolutely shines in front of the camera. Her smile is contagious. She wanted this to be a gift for her boyfriend as well as herself. So against her better judgement she wore Florida Gator attire just for her man! lol!

Nikki saw this dress in the Sparkle Wardrobe and had to have it for her session!

Sparkling Patrice

Say hello to the gorgeous Patrice. Patrice came all the way from Texas to have a shoot done with her friend Christine. We had such and amazing time with these ladies.

Each and EVERY woman we photograph has something unique about her. Patrice has the most amazing eyes. They pull you in with their sparkle. You don’t know if it is a sparkle of mischief or if you should run! She has a vintage vibe that makes her timeless. With her creamy skin and dark hair she could easily have been a 40’s movie star.

Patrice was in town for two weeks. Before she left town we made sure she still had her in person reveal to choose her images. Then we had her order shipped right to her home in Texas. If you are from out of state we will work to make sure you see your images in person before you leave!

When using roses or rose petals we always use fresh roses!
Look at the shoes Patrice brought! Gah!! Love them!

Sparkling Christine

Christine found out about Love Your Sparkle from her friend Maggy. You may remember her from a previous post. After just having her forth child Christine thought she was far from ready for a boudoir session. Thankfully she has great friends who encouraged her to book a session.

For this session I wanted to incorporate the colored lights in the last outfit. This time I thought I would also get the fog machine in on the party. The last images Christine likes to call her “Bad Sandy” look. Sandy from the movie Grease of course.

Sparkling Jodie

Working with Jodie was so much fun! This woman is the total package. Sass, laughs, brains and beauty all mixed together. The amount of work she does to help our local veterans is amazing. She helped to make sure her vets were fed and taken care of during the pandemic. Her veterans are a part of her family. So what better way to celebrate her hard work than with a boudoir shoot!

Jodie booked this session with her best friend. I cannot stress how much fun this makes your experience. Jodie brought her own super sexy dress. I told her if she no longer needs it one day we will accept the donation lol! The blue bodysuit for her second outfit was the perfect color for her. Now the star attraction is definitely Jodie’s biker vest with her collection of patches. The only thing that could have made the shoot better was her on her actual motorcyle. As you can see Jodie’s true gorgeous personality shined through with this outfit!

Instagram Magic

Have you ever found someone on a social media site who is just inspiring and gorgeous? You look forward to their posts everyday. If they miss a day you think…. hmmm well maybe it was just an off day. But I do sure hope for content tomorrow! Well I have one of those! She goes by the name @modernbombshellxoxo.

January of this year I finally got the nerve to message her on instagram. “Hello Tess!! Just wanted to finally reach out to you. I appreciate your real content. If you are interested in collaborating together on an idea you have hit me up! I recently helped out a friend of mine with her clothing line!” I dropped some photos in below this text. Please note the crazy amount of exclamation points I used. But let’s get real. If you meet me in person that is just my personality. Here is Modernbombshellxoxo‘s response. “Very cool! I’m glad you reached out. I’ll certainly hit you up if/when I come up with a creative project to shoot.” I figured at this point she was just being polite. At least I put myself out there right?

Just shy of a month later I got a response!! Not just any response. Three unique and amazing ideas for a photoshoot! The option I chose to go with was “Before and After Photos.” “The idea would be to set up a shoot without all the bells and whistles (no hair, makeup or great posing). We start with the before photos and then after add in the bells and whistles (hair, makeup, styling, posing) to show that it really takes a team to create a great image. We then post both the before and after photos.”

February we made magic happen. Our entire team was so excited that day. Modernbombshellxoxo was such a pleasure to work with. We had tons of laughs and lots of hugs.

Below are the images from our shoot. We would love your FEEDBACK on this project!

We would love your FEEDBACK on this project!

Pinup

Making each shoot unique to the client is what helps to set us apart. We love shooting glamour and classic boudoir shoots. At the same time we want to stand out from other photographers. New projects usually mean more of an investment. Investment in backdrops, props, furniture, clothing and accessories.

For over two years I have been holding on to these colorful velcro rollers. I have even taken them to shoots back when we shot in hotel rooms. Just in case I could use them. I am not one to hold onto things that are not useful for too long but something told me they needed to stay.

Our client Kathe did not know I had this surprise in store for her. I just new this would be a perfect fit. So the day of her shoot we told her what we had in store. She was so excited. The best part is her mom yelled from the makeup chair…. grab her cigarettes! She needs to have a smoke. Fan of smoking or not those are some of my favorite images.

The set was made up of a leftover piece of pink seamless paper for the backdrop, a plant from one of our sets, velvet chair from the studio and a hairdryer supplied by our stylist Jodi. Jodi found this beauty on the side of the road many moons ago.

To save time we only rolled the front of her hair in rollers. The bodysuit was in our Sparkle Wardrobe and the heels were a part of Kathe’s wardrobe. They were literally the icing on the cake.

If this set has you inspired message us so we can create a perfect pinup look for you!

These are the kind of images that need to be out on display! This is the perfect example of a time I would recommend adding a 9 UP framed print to your package!

Sparkling Magy

During Magy’s consultation I could tell she was nervous but more than willing to push herself through this challenge. This was going to be a valentine’s day gift for her husband. The day of her session she was shaking with nerves and excitement. Needless to say when she walked out the door her gorgeous head was held high! She did such an amazing job during her session. Her favorite outfit by far was the pink tule skirt (available in our Sparkle Wardrobe). She wanted all of the pictures of her in that skirt!

Sparkling Rachel

Rachel is a previous client of ours. Her sparkling eyes and gorgeous smile were perfect for this project. I reached out to Rachel to see if she would be interested in modeling for our newest behind the scenes video. She was quick to accept the offer! Most of this session I had styled but encouraged Rachel to bring anything she wanted. In the end her leopard bodysuit was by far my favorite outfit from this session!

Andrea told me during her consultation she wanted to look bad ass.  She had no concerns about stretch marks from having 4 boys. (I know it is hard to believe this hot body had 4 boys!)  Andrea wanted to look hot and bad ass.

Andrea is such a great mix of sass, spunk and confidence.  With just a little direction Andrea moved effortlessly from one pose to another.  She even threw a few ideas my way that made for the most amazing images.  Her images are strong and sexy just like her.  There are just a few images that show her softer side.  I have to admit they are some of my favorites.

Andrea booked her session with her best friend Rachel.  Those two had so much fun experiencing this together.  That evening they met up with their husbands looking and feeling spicy!  I love both of these girls so much.  They are such strong supporters of what Love Your Sparkle is about.

Now here is the best part of the story.  Andrea’s husband reached out to me this weekend.  He knew that Andrea was making payments on her print order.  He wanted to surprise her for Mothers Day and pay off the balance.  I got a little teary eyed because I knew how much this would mean to her.  You have a good man Andrea! I hope this is an awesome Mother’s Day! xoxo
