Props? Oh yes, bring your props | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer
J.K. Rowling and Yo Yo Ma would be so proud.
When this lovely client came to our Atlanta studio last year with her "can I bring props to my boudoir session" question we went all 'Broad City' and were like "YAAASSS QUEEN". Of course, we tend to say "YAS" before asking for more information, but we haven't been burned yet.
(That being said, please don't surprise me by bringing some weird prop like a taxidermy fox-thing, IDK what to do with that).
During our questionnaire and wardrobe planning process, which you can read more about in a few posts back, she elaborated that she'd love to bring in her cello as well as the candles she'll use at her October wedding. Insert a sigh of relief from us that she wasn't bringing a taxidermy fox.
I'll admit, working my lighting with the candles proved to be a bit of an equation at first. I was 0% satisfied with a lot of the images, but with a little experimentation and a LOT of micro adjustments I finally got it right. Cue Harry Ma, which is my combo of Harry Potter and Yo Yo Ma. Deal with it.
To date, these candles and the cello are some of my favorite unique props that have been brought in to the boudoir studio! I’m currently on my way to San Francisco for a few boudoir sessions (Yippeee!!!!!) and I can’t wait to see the props that these ladies come up with :)
