Over the past year or so Shannon Rouvel (makeup and hair extraordinaire) has mentioned her beautiful friend Tre and how we should all collaborate. Last month I finally got the opportunity to do so! Tre is an actress and a plus-size model located here in Boston. She has a beautiful spirit and quickly filled the studio with her positive energy.
We started the shoot with beauty work using only the window light + a reflector to bounce some light back up at her. Makeup and hair by the amazing Shannon Rouvel, of course.
After the beauty photos we moved on to a cute bra and panties set with a brighter lip color and a big over-sized sweater (my favorite boudoir clothing accessory!). The “big sweater” outfit is a classic look that every woman can rock! If you shoot with me you’ll see that “large, over-sized sweater” will be on your list of items to bring. 😉
Before the shoot Tre and I communicated about her comfort level and how much skin she was comfortable showing. Just because she’s a professional model doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have the same concerns as the rest of us!
“This shoot was definitely outside of my comfort zone. I am a professional plus size model that shoots mainly fashion and commercial print. So Boudoir was something so different for me but I wanted to try it! Because I am full figured I was concerned about my body in certain poses and clothing I had picked out, but Jess listened to my concerns and made sure we only did shots that I felt comfortable with and looked good in.” — Tre
Tre is the perfect woman to break in my new turquoise wall!
Our final choice of outfits was a cute and flirty bloomer’s outfit – just perfect for the “bedroom” set in my studio. For this look Shannon chose “blackberry” toned makeup and did Tre’s hair in tight curls.
“I would do Boudoir again and again.
I loved it! I felt good and sexy!” — Tre
Isn’t her outfit the cutest thing ever?! Tre purchased it just for our photoshoot. If you are looking for beautiful plus-size lingerie you must visit Hips & Curves. They have fun cute and playful outfits as well as classic lingerie for your boudoir photoshoot.
To say that the day was a fun one would be an understatement. Tre – thank you for joining me for a shoot and brighting up my studio with your smile!
