This boudoir session shows that these type of shoots can be sweet and romantic. We executed a modest styled boudoir at the AKP Rustic Retreat in August, and Miss K was the perfect model! This real life momma of two went up against a group of 12 photographers in such a vulnerable state, and I can’t commend her enough. She was brave, looked stunning, and helped us all create some beautiful portraits. Lauren of So Lovely Weddings and Blooms designed a beautiful space for this session and I have been dying to show them off!

I am so grateful to Lauren and the team that came together to make this shoot happen on day #2 of our first retreat! She recruited the best vendor team and I know everyone enjoyed shooting the set-ups she created for us during our workshop event. I can’t wait for round two in OBX next March!
