Category Archives: Maternity Boudoir

Every woman has her own reason for hiring me to create their boudoir photos. Some wish to capture their beautiful growing pregnant bellies in a Maternity Boudoir, knowing that I can provide something that goes far beyond typical maternity photos. These images are handled with extra care and showcase not only the pregnant belly, but the woman herself. The best time to schedule your pregnancy session is around 28-34 weeks, when the tummy is nice and round. This will vary with each women though because some women, who carry small or gain little weight, may choose to wait until they are 36-38 weeks. You want to come when you feel good, have a nice belly— but before the craziness begins! haha! Other women, who are growing a bit more rapidly, may choose to come around 28-32 weeks.

Bunn Salarzon - best nine instagram 2016

I am still accepting bookings to help with our adoption journey.

Happy New Year!! May 2017 be the best year for you yet.

This new year started off a little stressful for me…
Previously, I had planned to retire from my photography business by March 1 because I felt it’s time for me to pursue something else, also the date will be exactly 10 years since I started the business. Of course, as we all know… life happens. Our second journey to start our own family (after a 10-year hiatus to help my husband take care of his mother living with dementia) through adoption or fertility treatments have become more overwhelming than we had thought so I am making 2017 the year we get to [finally] bring home a child or two, one way or another. Well, the legal way! haha!!! So if you are in need of a professional, experienced — and sweet! — photographer for your special event, wedding, family portraits, boudoir pics, etc., then please let me know. I’d love to work with you again. :)

P.S. I am available worldwide. My passport is always ready!

Baby Milk Bath Photos… and Boudoir Photography?

Boudoir Photography doesn’t necessarily mean “naked woman in a bedroom,” of course, that’s been the trend which has defined how boudoir photography is nowadays. A boudoir really is just a French word meaning “a woman’s bedroom” and I’ve photographed hundreds of sensual photo shoots inside some form of boudoir, but I always look forward to doing boudoir photography the non-traditional way and outside the bedroom, ie. baby milk bath photos with mommy in the bathtub. No flower petals? Sometimes I am too simple to a fault… but, I don’t apologize for it, I embrace it. A milk bath photo shoot with mama and baby, that’s all.

HER BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT EXPERIENCE WITH BUNN...

MEET VICTORIA

WHO ARE YOU? My name is Victoria and I work in the healthcare industry.

WHAT WAS YOUR GOAL? (Was this your first boudoir photo experience?) No, this was my 3rd. I wanted to do this for my son and to be able to remind myself how beautiful I looked during my pregnancy.

WHAT DID BUNN OR HER TEAM DO TO HELP PUT YOU AT EASE? Being pampered and having fun. She made me feel comfortable and helped me find the best position that helped me look flattering. (Hair & Makeup: Styled by Chrystal)

 

HOW WOULD YOU COMPLETE THIS SENTENCE: "Every woman should experience a boudoir photo session with Bunn because..." She will help bring out the confidence and the beauty that may be hidden away from the routines of life. This is an experience that every woman should have.

Maternity Boudoir Photography in Black & White

I think it’s a great idea for a mama-to-be to have fun with her maternity photos; try something different from the traditional and consider a Maternity Boudoir Session … This mama wanted to document her last trimester, because she didn’t get a chance to do that with her first pregnancy, so she came to my studio to get pampered by one of the best makeup teams in Portland, OR then a little photo shoot with me. With her permission, here’s a quick look at her maternity boudoir photos. //Model: Christine //Hair & Makeup by Powder Inc. //To inquire about my Boudoir Packages & Pricing, please complete the Contact form or call 503-308-8228 (PST).

As part of my Bunn’s Boudoir Sessions, I also offer Maternity Boudoir Sessions and we’d get to use this sheer fabric that was designed specifically for photography.


WHAT TO WEAR FOR YOUR MATERNITY BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT WITH BUNN

 

WHAT’S A MATERNITY BOUDOIR SESSION? When I was first approached by women inquiring about pregnancy boudoir photos, I was a bit hesitant about doing such sessions. After all, many of them were well into their third trimester of pregnancy, and I was more accustomed to photographing women who wanted to hide their bellies rather than show them off. But after a few maternity boudoir sessions, I came to realize what a beautiful thing we were doing … We weren’t trying to be sexy, but simply documenting one of life’s most amazing journeys. It was a far different approach from my regular boudoir sessions, but few things compare to the joy of capturing the first intimate moments as a mother bonds with her child. Allow me to capture the soft and romantic side of your pregnancy, I’d be honored.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO SHOOT? The best time to schedule your pregnancy session is around 28-34 weeks, when the tummy is nice and round. This will vary with each woman though because some women, who carry small or gain little weight, may choose to wait until they are 36-38 weeks. You want to come when you feel good, have a nice belly— but before the craziness begins! haha! Other women, who are growing a bit more rapidly, may choose to come around 28-32 weeks.

THE APHRODITE GOWN. As part of a Maternity Boudoir Session, we will also be using this delicate salmon/peach-colored sheer fabric from the Elouise Couture collection. This fabric is made specifically for photography and it’s perfect for showing off the shape of your pregnant belly as well as presenting the rest of you in all your radiant glory. It’s a one-size-fits-all piece, yet it looks different with every woman. (NOTE: gown not available for boudoir marathon sessions.)

GET YOUR GLAM OUTFIT. I think it’s important to include something that’s not lingerie in to your professional photo shoot; these are images that you could freely share with friends and family on social media without feeling at all shy about them. My hair and makeup artist will pamper you with your desired hair and makeup look so I would spend our time together by first photographing you in non-lingerie attire aka your “glam outfit.” And your next two outfits would be the “boudoir outfits.” Basically, there is really not much difference in a maternity boudoir session from a regular boudoir session— except, the only thing is for me to pose you showing off your belly.

BABY DOLL LINGERIE. Yes, the same baby doll lingerie that looks great on you when you’re not pregnant looks every bit as wonderful on you when you are. Go figure!  Pun intended. The fabric of your baby doll outfit is critical: If you go heavy, it can tend to add weight on you. Therefore, thinner, lighter fabric is always better … Examples of the perfect baby doll lingerie can be found on my Maternity Boudoir Photography Gallery.

BRING MEANINGFUL PROPS. I don’t generally like to use props in my photography style, however, I think a few good props do quite well with my Maternity Boudoir Sessions. I encourage you to bring an item or two that will coordinate with the theme of your photo shoot. These can include a bouquet of helium balloons, a floral crown (it works super well with the Aphrodite Gown for a whimsical look!), or a sailboat if you’re having a nautical nursery theme … Just a few ideas to get you brainstorming.

INCLUDE YOUR SPOUSE. If this isn’t a surprise for your husband, then feel free to include him … I would treat this as a mix of Maternity plus Couples Boudoir and always keep it classy. I know that most men may not be in to an intimate kind of photography, but just ask him and we’ll go from there. ;)
