Kayla // Bridal Boudoir at a Plantation
YOU GUYS, I've been waiting to show these images to the world since JANUARY. Kayla, the sweetest of sweethearts, was a model for a styled shoot I organized last December and hired me to capture boudoir photographs for her then fiance' via a Hang Out session. She has since gotten married so it is with great pleasure and pride that I can show these to the world.
To describe our afternoon in one word? Blissful. Kayla reserved a room for the afternoon at Annadele's Plantation and brought along her sisters, champagne, a fun playlist, an open heart, and so many laughs. We chatted for a bit and went through her wardrobe options(of which, she brought her wedding gown and vintage Victoria's Secret lingerie her mother wore on her wedding night) before diving in head first. It's so important to me that the Hang Out experience in and of itself is as important as the photographs. So, we chilled and then spent three glorious hours capturing this beautiful spirit. Kayla and her sisters were so cheerful, energetic and playful and we danced and flitted about the room while sipping champagne and making magic.
The afternoon ended with a wildflower milk bath made possible by big sis Karlie who so graciously brought the milk and flowers needed last minute. It was everything and more.
We parted ways, all of us happier than we had met...which to me means a successful day. I cannot tell you how lucky I am to do what I do. Contributing to empowering women through self love, body positivity, support and community means the world to me and Hang Out has exceeded my expectations in making it possible.
