So in case the title didn’t give it away, today is my birthday!! I did the math once and I am a Valentine’s day baby birthed about 9 months from that day of romance 30 years ago. Today I graduate from my 20s. It was an awesome decade but it’s time to close that chapter and start the next one and I couldn’t be more excited!
Before this great day, a friend reached out to connect me with the lovely Susannah of Alumbra Photography. She approached me about doing an Unveiled by Alumbra (aka a boudoir shoot – so mom & dad, you can stop reading here thanks!) and after checking out her blog I happily agreed and not only was the experience AMAZING but I couldn’t have asked for better photos. Before I share the magic we made, I have to thank all of the people who helped make it possible!!
*Susannah of course!! – Not only are your photos magnificent but you are also definitely the hottest pregnant lady I know and gave Coco a run for her money as my pose coach for the day – you put all my nerves at ease and made it one of the funnest shots I’ve ever done!!
*Ana of Makeup by Ana & Love Ana B did the incredible make up and hair styling for this shot and I love her work!! She made me look like a more glamorous version of myself and I didn’t feel over done so thank you!!
*Katya of She’s Unique was the lovely friend that connected us and the generous #GirlBoss who loaned me some extra bling for this shoot – all the jewelry for this shoot was borrowed or previously purchased from her fantastic store!!
*Doug is my natural hair wizard who keeps my hair looking healthy and great. He does the amazing colors that always get me compliments and I wouldn’t look the same without his help!!
*A big shout out and thank you to Pinky Nails DC for squeezing me in for a gel mani/pedi that lasted and gave my normally naked nails some color!!
Hope you all enjoy these shoots as much as we enjoyed creating them!
Ana B does some seriously flawless make up!!
Couldn’t do a photo shoot without a little flash!! Flash tats will always be one of my favorite accessories because you can wear them year round and everyone has their own way of styling them! (and I was rocking them long before Beyonce! lol)
So on a random note all of the wardrobe from this is mine and one of the items I chose was my Thinx Period Panties – yep those hot black undies above & below are period panties!! I have been a Thinx fan and supporter since their Kickstarter days and I love that they are useful and still sexy so if you haven’t checked them out, go, before they sell out again!!
Doing my best Kendall Jenner lol.
Hope you all enjoyed and keep an eye out cause I have some exciting new changes coming in the future!! Spoiler – #AsItHappens is coming soon!!
If you want to do your own shoot, boudoir or just fashion fun, Susannah is definitely your girl!! Go book your own photo fun and make sure to tell her I sent you.
