MarieSam's Boudoir Sessions w/Beth Cocuzzi & Kelly Melissa *reviews and TONS of pics*

Recommended Posts

YAY finally I got my photos for both sessions. Both photographers I used were great, but had very different styles, which is why I did the separate sessions. Both women are in So Cal, but Beth is going to start doing BD tours, which is awesome!!!

 

** If you’re ever apprehensive**

Let me preface all this by saying I was really nervous about doing this at first -- I have a daughter and she did a number on me as far as stretch marks, body never being the same, blah, etc. So like most women, I have body/image issues. Both photographers knew from the start that all of this bothered me, so they took pics from angles that were flattering and of course smoothed/edited out any marks that I was uncomfortable with -- photoshop is virtual crack, I LOVE it. hahhaha. So if you have any qualms about your appearance, talk to your BD photog about it first ~ they will help calm your fears. The BD experience is liberating, and I honestly would love to do it once a year -- it’s so much fun rolleyes.gif

 

First session was with Beth Cocuzzi aka Pussycat Pinups -- Boudoir Photography by Beth . (Package prices are on her site) She is FREAKING AWESOME!!!! I cannot even begin to say how amazing she is, both she and her hair stylist Tera. As soon as I came in they looked over the stuff I brought and gave me their opinion on what they thought would look best for pictures. FYI - Beth works outta her home in Huntington Beach and she has some awesome furniture/backdrops and was actually remodeling while I was there to add a new setting in her living room for BD pics.

 

Anywho, Beth did my makeup and Tera did my hair. These girls are true pros at their craft! Then Beth took my pics and instructed me the whole time on how to be "sexy" -- I needed help! I had three outfit changes, two looks and a lipstick switch so technically 3 looks.

 

Here are some pics - as you will see her style is more pinup/glamour. I told her I wanted the Maxim feel, which FI LOVES, and she went with it. I have tons more but these are my favs:

Ok next session was with Kelly Melissa Photography. Kelly is another sweetheart who just start doing BD photos. We did our session at a hotel -- $30 (can’t beat that). I did my own makeup/hair and she took as many photos in as many outfits I wanted. This session was more of the traditional boudoir session -- very natural, from different angles, and more laid back. I brought lots of props, outfits, and was willing to do whatever my vision was.

 

She was great, I went on 3 hours of sleep to my photo session which sucks because I think I look exhausted and shitty. But hey, I’m half naked, should FI should love em regardless right? lol She’s another So Cal photographer that is great!
