I still don’t know what to call these sessions, because they are nothing short of magical. Milkbath Portrait? Boudoir? Fantasy and fairy dust? Who knows, but I am just in love with them. I have photographed Sarah in the past, and I was just so stoked to work with her again. She rocked the water and stayed totally cool among the flames. We shot this entirely in the dark, with candle light and studio light working seamlessly together to create a mystical, moody vibe. I loved the combination of the gold dress, gold baby’s breath and Sarah’s red hair for the first look. For the second look we went a little more subtle with the colors, and just like I had hoped her dance skills allowed her to get into really beautiful poses. It’s always amazing for me to see the transformation – from hair and makeup (done here by the uber talented Becky at Beautiful One Makeup Artistry), to wardrobe, to the often challenging situation of posing in water, to a final result which is completely unique and timeless. Without further ado, here is Sarah’s moody, gold, candlelit, milkbath boudoir shoot :D.
