Boudoir Photography - I would love a pair of pins like these!

By mikaelamorgan      
This lady had a boudoir photo shoot as a wedding gift for her husband to be. Having had kids she was very conscious of her tummy area and wanted that hidden.

She had great legs so I decided to show those off whilst minimising her tummy with the use of the shadow from her leg and darkened it down even more.

I turned her head away as the light on her face was unflattering in this lighting set up if she looked directly into camera from this angle. I smoothed her neck and chin just very slightly with liquify tool in photoshop. This was one of her faourite pics.

Hope you like it Smile
