Things got a little steamy in downtown Minneapolis last night.
A few times a year, I set up a Garters and Lace event. Boudoir, fancy hotel, signature drink, and sessions all day. This time, it wasn’t a list of appointments with various clients, it was a group of girlfriends spending the day together. Over the last month or so, I kept hearing snippets from the friends of shopping trips and makeup ideas…and when the day came, they all got their makeup done, and came over to the fancy hotel room I had rented for the night.
We had music pumping, everyone was helping each other choose outfits and accessories, and making each other laugh. The unforeseen benefit of shooting as a group, was that insecurities were checked at the door and I was able to capture real laughs and subjects that were at ease and comfortable. When all the sessions were done, the whole group (still with gorgeous hair and makeup) got dressed up for a night on the town, and were able to spend the night in the hotel room. I think a boudoir party is the perfect bachelorette party!
And I will not confirm nor deny that there was a pillow fight at the end…I’ll just leave that up to the imagination.
Here are a few sneak peeks. The ladies who are showing their faces have graciously given me permission to do so. There are some lucky significant others that are going to get quite the gift in a few weeks!
