Carol here, I don’t want anyone to think Lizette may have written this post,lol!

I have a small confession to make:) I am not a shoe girl.

I know! I shouldn’t even type those words!! For shame, for shame!!

I just have a hard time picking shoes, finding comfortable ones and finding a place in a home of 3 girls to put them!!

So I don’t buy them. BUT I do LOVE them. And I think they make a HUGE difference in the look of your boudoir images.

Need shoes for your boudoir shoot? Look for these 4 things:

1: Height. That’s right, the higher the better baby! They turn “ho-hum legs” into “wowza look at them legs” in an instant!

2: Details. Look for cute little details in the shoe to add a little something extra. Ruffle, zipper, ribbon, cut out, you get it!

3: Color. Now, don’t get me wrong, you gotta have at least one killer pair of black heels, but don’t forget about pink, green, blue and yellow!!! It doesn’t need to match the color in your outfit either. Just as long as it coordinates. Think red/navy, pink/lime green, brown/orange, teal/red.

4: Height. Worth repeating!! Go high for goodness sakes!!

Here are a few beautiful heels that would rock your boudoir shoot. What are you waiting for?

It’s beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart. ~unknown

A wife, a mother of 2, a friend, business owner. Fun, vivacious, and sweet. “K” is all of these things and more! We had the immense pleasure of spending time with the gorgeous “K” last week during her Signature Coco Session. This was a special 10 year anniversary gift to her husband and to herself.

You will both be over the moon with your images “K”. You can work a camera, girl, in front of it and behind it!!

Inspire Me {Winnipeg Boudoir Photography}

I thought I would address red in our inspire me boards right away as it’s a pretty popular color for boudoir. Now don’t get us wrong, we do love red! In fact it’s my (Carol) favorite color! It’s sexy, it’s hot, it’s the color of love for goodness sakes! BUT it’s a difficult color to do well for boudoir. It’s a strong color and it can take over your image. We want YOU to be the focus of your images not the red bustier you are wearing.  So here are a few tips about using red for your Coco Boudoir Session. Pick one or two things MAXIMUM for an outfit in red, for example heels and a bracelet or necklace. Pair it with a soft beige or cream to tone it down. Check out the pretty red and beige negligee below. Now that is gorgeous!! Pick a rich dark red. It will photograph beautifully and it won’t be in-your-face-red. Incorporate red into accessories like pillows or lamps to add color to your all white or cream outfit. Of course a beautiful red lip color will look amazing! Our makeup artist, Karrie, will help you pick a color right for your skin tone. Check out a few examples below! Gotta a style or color you’d like to see featured on Inspire Me Boards? Leave a comment and we’ll get it up!

red done right
