We had a great opportunity to work with Faye, a globe-trotting model based out of London to do a geek-girl boudoir concept shoot at the Commonwealth Hotel in Boston. The shoot started over a game of “Fog of Love” an award winning board game that takes two players through a sort of romantic comedy scenario where they play out two people that meet, fall in love and go through all the stages of a relationship - thematically on point and the game’s design fit with the aesthetic of the shoot and didn’t draw too much away from the subject.
Adding a theme and props to your Boston boudoir session can be a really great way to do some creative storytelling and naturally create a little more direction than simply sitting there and trying to look good. This can help you ease into being in front of the camera and make you feel a little less self-conscious, which is very helpful in getting the most from your session.
The hotel setting also offered this cozy window seat that overlooked Commonwealth Avenue for an additional setting only a few steps away. Here we started with something more quiet and contemplative, an implied nude nestled up in the window enjoying a cup of tea. After we finished that shot we took another approach with a geeky graphic tee and a copy of “Rat Queens” so the vibe was more playful than that quiet moment of contemplation.
Not every Boston boudoir session has to be seriously sexy, something bold and fun can inject a lot of personality into a set and help you get a lot more variety out of your session with Ryan Richardson Photography.
