This is Miss T! She is getting married and wanted to gift her soon-to-be-husband with a boudoir shoot. 🙂 Bridal boudoir are some of my favorite shoots. Miss T is a fairly private lady and I am so lucky to get to share some of her photos with you. Originally, Miss T didn’t want me to share her photographs. But after speaking to her fiance, and realizing that the only way for me to show other women my work is if I have photos to share, she changed her mind and signed a model release for me.
I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about model releases on my blog, so let’s talk about them now. 🙂 If you don’t know, a model release is a document that you sign that allows me to share your photographs on social media, my website and blog, and in marketing materials. Some photographers require a model release is signed by their clients and some don’t. I am one of the photographers that does not require a model release, because I completely understand that you might not want your boudoir photos posted on the internet or social media, that can be a really scary idea! Sometimes, it’s very hard to market my photography without photos, but I would much rather have you feel comfortable than to require a model release.
Also, I offer a few different options when it comes to your model release. You can give me a full release, which lets me use any of your photos (however, I never post photos that I would feel uncomfortable with if it was me), you can pick the photos that you want to allow me to use, or you can decide to let me use your photos in print only (which are used to make sample albums and wall art, and never leave my studio).
I am so incredibly lucky to have the amazing clients that I do, and I am so SO grateful to Miss T for allowing me to show off her gorgeous photos!! It really is a gift.
