Bumps, Bruises, and Photoshop

While we don’t recommend taking up snowboarding or doing a mud run the week before your session with Belle Boudoir, it is inevitable that many of us have bumps, bruises, and/or scars that we don’t want to highlight in our photos. It’s life. And if you are living it you typically have proof somewhere on your body. But there is no need to worry when you have the pros at Belle Boudoir behind you. Truth is, it takes a little bit of effort from the whole team to create those flawlessly sexy images you see on our website, Pinterest page, and Instagram account. Our makeup artist Nikoma, owner and photographer Cheryl, and retoucher Sarah will each do their part to ensure that your skin looks it’s absolute best while still ensuring it looks like yours, naturally. Just remember that communication is key! If you don’t want to show the scar on your knee from playing soccer in high school, let us know so that we can work with you to make that happen. With great communication and superb talent you will be sure to love every square inch of your boudoir images. 7f67206d556619352eaf9e1fb81fa64d(pp w480 h319) Bumps, Bruises, and Photoshop
