Lissa: A Secret look Behind the Scenes of a Lingerie Boudoir Shoot

The highlight of this week was a studio shoot featuring up and coming model/actress Lissa Turner. This is how we captured some of the sexiest images I've ever shot....

For the first set, Lissa modeled a red lace teddy and matching lipstick. We used my favorite boudoir set: the satin sheets.The "bed" with the satin sheets is a simple set in the studio. Some assembly is required but this set up is remarkably easy. A paper backdrop and an inflatable camping mattress create the appearance of luxury. The most exciting part of this shoot was how we were able to create two dramatically different image sequences using a single set.

For the first outfit, we went with the classic boudoir look. I used one studio strobe with an octagonal soft box for lighting.

For the second set, Lissa changed into a black teddy and a wig and I changed up the lighting to create a dramatically different look on the exact same set. Here is the result...

The lighting effect was created with a pink gel, a red light bulb and two moving outdoor Christmas lights.

The results were even better than I could have imagined!

This photo shoot was the first of a series I'm working on this month that feature creative lighting and I could not be happier with the end result! For the next one I'm thinking the bathtub might be involved. I'd like to try something with pink light and water. If you are interested in booking a boudoir photo session click here. Or email
