It is said that all colors and flowers have special meanings behind them… For example a white carnation stands for innocence, while a red one stands for deep love. A blue hyacinth stands for constancy, and a yellow one for jealousy. There are as many meanings and secret languages connected to flowers from across different cultures as there are flowers on Earth. But there is perhaps only one flower that needs no introduction or explanation – a red rose always stands for love. And it is a flower that we absolutely love using in some of our boudoir photo sessions. There is just something about it that exudes passion and energy, in the ways no other accent can. And there is nothing like a beautiful red lipstick to complete a boudoir look and allow every photo to shine. It is a timeless conbination that we often revisit, especially when creating a classic, moody boudoir look with black lingerie and elegant set ups.
Recently, we had a great pleasure working with beautiful Miss D, who has brought a set of her very own special roses for the session. They were lovely paper flowers that she creates for her business and that completed her look marvellously (follow this link to see more of her beautiful creations – prosepetals.ca and Instagram page). We thought they made for an amazing accent together with red lips and classic, elegant looks. While a mix of both refined and contemporary set ups complete this session with some great variety.
We are very excited to share this latest session with you and hope that you may feel inspired to have flowers featured in your next photos too!
