This quick 25-minute impromptu boudoir session was done at a hotel in South Beach, Miami. This LOCATION was a match made in heaven for natural LIGHT. White walls and linens, helped to illuminate our model’s skin for a soft, yet bold look. In this particular shoot we included a variety of film-like editing techniques (both in color and b&w), as well as clean and clear LOOKS for a variety of feels in our model’s collection. In this particular photo story I want to share and discuss with you what to both think about, and expect when booking your boudoir session with AAG…

Where will the session take place?
The options are endless, but very much connected to what type of LOOKS you would like us to achieve. Whether it be in the middle of a forest, inside a studio setting, or maybe a combination of the two; looking up some inspirational boudoir photos could be helpful in refining your optimal location and the right LIGHTING space for you. Every location has it’s pros and cons. Some locations may include additional fees such as a to cover the location charges, mileage, or equipment insurance for the day but we will discuss everything in depth with you during our initial consultation.
Some locations we suggest…
Studio - The location with the most creative freedom in a private space.
Hotel - Limited, but private.
Forest/Nature - Earthy, natural, unique.
Beach - Exposed, elemental, soft.
Your home - Comfortable, personal, you.

This is more our side of business, but we can’t help but sharing our plans and goals for you. After we determine which location our session will take place we may discuss with you what types of lighting we will be utilizing to help create your look. We aim for versatility and range in every session. To accent your best qualities we may ask you what you love most about your body, and what you dislike most about your body. We want to illuminate your best qualities, and shine light to the beauty that is both visible and within you. To help us create this wave of both softness and boldness to your finished collection we will kindly pose you in what we feel will let your light SHINE.
Our tasks at hand. Exposure in…

We LOVE discussing what your most excited about, but we also want to hear your concerns. We want you to look at these photographs and think, “DAMN, I look great!!!”. Sharing your comfortability level, outfits, props, ideas, loves, hates -everything and all in between- makes us that much more prepared for shoot day. Our goal is to showcase the best of what you have to offer and leave the view wanting more.
If you have a preference on a particular type of “look” or editing style we invite you to share your vision with us. Our default photography and editing style for boudoir includes a range from clean to “dirty”. While we desire a raw emotion, we always edit your images to our highest standard. Quality is something we want you (and your partner) to both see and feel.
Our editing styles…
Clean - Our clean editing style is crisp, clear, bright, natural-looking, and true to color. Sometimes this will include enhancement of colors, or airy-enchanted whimsical
Dirty - Editorial. Fashion. Bold. Includes a range of tones and grains to help create a mood and texture for the highlighted subject. Sometimes this will include the look of film (or actual film, upon request).
