Though my design sensibility has always been somewhat tailored and tame, all that changed during my first trip to Venice, Italy in 2003.  I fell in love with the romance of it all -- this ancient, complex water world, gorgeously wrapped up like an ornate dream. Luxe gold carvings, beautiful metallic details and delicate lace surrounded me, along with thick, velvety fabrics. I found that the Venetians had such an amazing ability to combine the ancient, the rustic and the lush into one gorgeous element. 

I found myself beginning to incorporate more gold into my home and my wardrobe after that trip! I also loved seeing the jewelry and fashion trending toward gold looks in the past few years.

When women ask me what to wear for a boudoir session, I like to refer them to some more of the differentiated, unique lingerie wardrobe ideas.

When I say "Go for something gold!", I sometimes get the sideways look. But imagine yourself at my Red Bank boudoir studio, this elegant ivory setting, with a gorgeous glittering pop of gold against the backdrop of the many soulful antiques! SIGH...Simply stunning.

Gold makes me think of Venice.

It makes me think of old-world romance and ancient Roman goddesses.

I'm reminded of the golden age of The Great Gatsby.

These are things that make my heart swoon! And if you can't envision it, let some of these gorgeous lingerie, shoe and accessory gems guide your light the golden path.

Guess what? I also carry gilded album covers and golden craved fine art frames so you can enjoy a fully coordinated boudoir album or boudoir gallery wall.

Go for the gold, baby!

NYC + NJ BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER | WHAT TO WEAR FOR YOUR SHOOT | ART DECO

As a NYC + New Jersey Boudoir Photographer, I get the privilege of working with some exceptionally stylish women. Despite their excellent fashion sense, they still always seem to seem nervous about shopping for their boudoir session...and want to know how they can look tasteful and sexy in their boudoir pics. 

CHECK OUT THIS BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT LINGERIE BUYING GUIDE BELOW! 

One question I like to ask clients in their pre- boudoir photo shoot consultation is, "What's your favorite era?"  Meaning, I am very interested to know what style they identify with in women's fashion history. For many, it is the Art Deco period, characterized by vintage boudoir of the mid to late 1920's. 

Flowing gossamer, sheer silks and luxe lace all add to the details of this terrifically styled session. With the beautiful work of my hair and makeup artist Miranda Richards, the look is retro yet uniquely contemporary. It's one of my favorite ways to style a session.

NYC + NJ BOUDOIR: WHAT TO WEAR FOR YOUR PHOTO SHOOT

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT?

As a NYC  and a New Jersey boudoir photographer who likes to shoot classy, elegant boudoir photo shoots, it's one of the questions I get asked the most frequently. 

I find that many women like to wear black for at least one of their lingerie wardrobe choices. As a boudoir photographer, I will say it's an excellent choice because black lingerie can really flatter any body type, as well as add to the dramatic mood of the photo shoot. 

The devil IS in the details, and choosing high-end, highly detailed lingerie choices for your wardrobe will translate quite beautifully. 

Below are some links to these beautiful ensembles... Happy lingerie shopping!
