When I can steal the time away, I’m working on some ideas for demo boudoir photography video sessions. My latest project was shot with lovely lovely lovely Mollie, and I’m delighted to share it with you today. Brilliant Victoria Reynolds was our makeup artist for the shoot, and I knocked up some messy bed hair for M myself.
We filmed this video as part of a larger stills shoot a few weeks ago. If you’re following me on Instagram (@stormy_rebelandromance) you’ve already seen some of our favourite stills from the day. I’ll be posting the full set of stills here soon, and there’s a bit of behind the scenes footage I’m going to cut together too.
Mollie is wearing a black bodysuit by ASOS in this video. It’s a flattering cut and looks great in person, but in retrospect it reads a bit sheer on camera. It’s still gorgeous, just keep in mind that you might #freethenipple on film if you wear it for your own boudoir photography shoot;) I wish I would have noticed sooner, because we ended up having to cut a few shots to make it social media friendly – the nipple police are everywhere these days.
As a side note, I love ASOS for boudoir wardrobe options. They have a huge selection, and a good variety of sizes with plenty of affordable prices. Also, for UK based girls they do a £10/year offer that gets you free next day shipping and free returns on everything you purchase. SO convenient/dangerous.
I can’t find the exact piece Mollie wore, but here are a few similar options:
Anyway, this video means I finally have a curvy / plus size beauty represented in the video category, which is a step in the right direction. I’ll be adding more diversity to this category as we test new ideas, stay tuned.

A sneak peek at my newest project (drumroll)…boudoir video!
Shooting boudoir sessions on video is an idea I’ve been flirting with for ages, and I’m so excited to have finally made the first one. It’s definetly a learning curve and comes with software/hardware/equipment challenges, but both Montana and I were thrilled with the results of our first go. It looks way better in HD, so please feel free to watch this on my Vimeo instead (link at the bottom).
I wanted to wait and drop 15 videos on you all at once, Beyonce style. However, because I am not actually Beyonce and do not have anything near Beyonce’s production crew, I think it will take too long. I’ll share as I go instead.
My inspiration for boudoir on video comes from lingerie commercials, music videos, and fashion films. I love the traditional still boudoir photo shoot, but there’s a special kind of magic and authenticity that happens with motion. I just keep thinking – if you could star in a gorgeous video that left you feeling amazing and looking like you stepped off the Victoria’s Secret silver screen….how amazing would that be?
