It feels like just yesterday that we opened our new space, so to be celebrating a year of shooting in our studio feels totally surreal! When we first toured what was going to become our boudoir studio, it took a little bit of vision to imagine what it would look like once we were finished.
We loved the character of the building, having once been the Underwood typewriter factory meant it had a lot of history and felt totally unique. There was so much potential in the space, even though when we first saw it all of the incredible windows had been boarded up! (Seriously – when you come in for your session, remind us to share the photos from when we first saw the space, it was totally unrecognizable.)
So much love went into every little decision we made while designing our space, even down to choosing the exact right deep shade of gray for the walls. The studio is designed exclusively for boudoir, with our clients and their comfort in mind.
Our first step was ripping down the coverings over the windows, letting all of that gorgeous natural light into the space. We spent weeks choosing the exact right shade of gray for our dark wall, and installed huge floor to ceiling curtains over the windows for a clean, dreamy look.
Plants were a must, but if you’ve been following us for a while you probably know that I have a black thumb. We searched high and low for the most perfect faux greenery that would still look elegant and very real (thanks Crate & Barrel.) A big bed with a fluffy gray comforter was a must, and we added small gold details in the mirrors and finishes around the space for that luxe look.
We understand boudoir is an experience that often has people stepping out of their comfort zone, and so our studio was made with a luxurious and comfortable experience from start to finish in mind. We’ll work with you to curate the perfect outfits, and have some beautiful high end lingerie in the studio for our clients to use.
When you first arrive, the incredible hair & makeup artists we work with will chat with you when you arrive, take a look at any inspiration you may have for your look, and make sure you’re going to feel your best. You’ll spend the first hour or so of your session in hair and makeup, getting comfortable in the space and chatting with all of us. After your session you’ll be able to choose from a variety of products including albums, wall art, and digital files, so you can choose the perfect way for you to display your photographs!
We strongly believe that every person deserves to feel confident and beautiful, and we’re so excited to begin our second year in this gorgeous space in Hartford. Whether you’re looking to document a special moment in your life, or simply want to celebrate yourself, there’s no better way to do it than with a boudoir session!
