More media love for plus size / curvy Rebel & Romance bombshells today:)
Jolie, a German based website, contacted me a few weeks ago to ask if they could use a few images in a lingerie article they were working on. I of course said yes, and I’m pleased to see they’ve selected a few of Lorraine and Jada’s images to illustrate the feature.
I did attempt to use Google translate on the little text blurb beside each photograph, but what came out left something to be desired. It all seemed positive though, just a bit mangled – like the instructions that come with electronics assembled in China.
Screen shots below, or feel free to check out the original feature using these links:
Lorraine is wearing a great bra and brief set here, with matching lace panels. The panels act to distract the flow of your eye (similar to the colour blocking trend), so they can be very flattering on curvy bodies.
Look, I know it goes against everything you know about lingerie, but shapewear really can be sexy when it’s worn for a boudoir photo shoot. Jada is rocking a nude bodysuit here – it’s one of those sucky-in ones designed to hold everything in place. I asked her to bring it for her shoot, and I know that she thought I’d lost my mind, but I just kept saying, “Trust me, trust me!” And see? It looks really glam, but is also understated and shows off her body rather than what she’s wearing. Something like this is also a great option for women who would struggle to find a lacy, lingerie style bodysuit in an appropriate size, because these come in quite a lot of larger cup sizes.
Overall, two great wardrobe ideas, especially if you’ve got a curvy body type.
Check out these beautiful, curvy women going absolutely VIRAL on Buzzfeed!
Big ups to Buzzfeed staffer Peggy Wang, who obviously had the average woman in mind when she selected her favourite images for this article, “33 Impossibly Sexy Boudoir Photo Poses.” I’m always honoured to photograph regular, everyday women, and it’s great to see a more realistic body shape getting some much deserved media love.
1.7 million views and climbing says you’re into the media supporting plus size / curvy / fuller figured women too. Thank you for your continued support. I hope images like these inspire you to give your own boudoir photo shoot a try!
Hot off the Press: Winning Image Award from The Association of International Boudoir Photographers
On a whim, I entered an image from one of my recent shoots into a competition. I don’t normally spend much time chasing awards and accolades, but the theme was “Yellow,” all the submissions were coming from boudoir photographers, and I had just happened to make friends with a pretty yellow python on a boudoir photo shoot a few weeks before. I didn’t expect much to come from it, but last weekend I woke up to a lovely surprise;
Mucho gracias to the lovely Katrina, who looks absolutely stunning, Gemma our makeup artist for the day, and of course to Sunny the yellow python for nailing a killer pose.
There are a few additional images from this set that I’ll be releasing in the weeks to come. If you hate snakes please accept my apologies for creeping you on a somewhat regular basis. The rest of you – stay tuned for more slithery goodness.
Hot off the Press: Rebel & Romance London Boudoir Photography Featured in VolUp2 Magazine
Just a quick post today to say that I’ve had a few images from my most recent shoot with plus size model Olivia and makeup artist Debbie published in the latest issue of VolUp2 Magazine.
VolUp2 Magazine describes themselves as:
” A bilingual English/French online quarterly magazine showcasing diverse beauty, with an emphasis on curvy women, and exploring the generosity of Mind, Body and Spirit. Brought to you by supermodel Velvet d’Amour.”
Print copies are available here. I’ll be doing a full post with images from this shoot on the blog next week, so tune in then if you’d like to see what we got up to.
Hot off the Press: Rebel & Romance Boudoir Photography featured in Philosophie Boudoir Magazine
It’s an honour to be featured in the latest issue of Philosophie Boudoir Magazine, an internationally distributed publication that curates and presents beautiful boudoir imagery. Part magazine, part fine art/coffee table book, this publication is put out by the Association of International Boudoir Photographers and is available for purchase here.
I love Philosophie’s mission statement, which is “to portray women in the most beautiful light, both literally and metaphorically.” They chose two of my favourite images of Jada and Olivia to print, check out the tear sheets below:)
I’m also excited to let you in on a little secret…I’ve done a second shoot with the fabulous Olivia. I can’t say much about it now, except that the shoot was genius and involved a little bit of pin up, a little bit of Morocco, and a lot of fine art nudity. Selected images are slated for publication in August, but I’ll keep you posted as I’m given release dates. It’s all very hush-hush and secretive with printed publications, but you can see a teensy sneak peek by following me at: stormy_rebelandromance
Hot off the Press: Rebel & Romance Bridal Boudoir Photography Featured in Pretty Pear Bride
I’m thrilled that Rebel & Romance Boudoir Photography has recently been featured in the Summer Issue of Pretty Pear Bride. Images I created with Jada, A, and Olivia were selected as a muli-page feature showcasing bridal boudoir photography for curvy women.
Editor Shafonne, the brains behind Pretty Pear Bride explains that, “Pretty Pear Bride was started as a site where plus size brides can find bridal inspiration that THEY long for. So many people planning their weddings struggle with finding inspiration that includes images that look like them. Everyone wants to see people that look like them, doing what they are trying to do because it allows them to envision that they can be just as glamorous and gorgeous as they imagined. So the mission was clear: merge a love for blogging and wedding planning with creating a place for plus size brides to see themselves in wedding inspiration.”
The Summer Issue of Pretty Pear Bride is available for purchase here, or you can stop by their website for a regular dose of curvy bridal inspiration.
