Welcome to the blog, sort of like a digital garden where dreams are planted and grow wild! My name is Quianna and my family calls me “Qui” like key! I’m a destination wedding photographer based in Scottsdale and the Bay Area.
I love adventures and creating memories even more than I love photographing them—and I LOVE taking photos! In addition to capturing weddings, family milestones, and the best memories I also offer business tools, motivation and inspiration to help creatives turn their passions into their profession. We only get this one life, why not live our days doing what we love?
How To Ensure You LOVE Your Boudoir Photos | Scottsdale and Bay Area Boudoir Photography
Once you have selected and booked your Boudoir Photographer it’s important to feel as prepared as possible for your shoot! You’re probably feeling a bit nervous and TOTALLY out of your comfort zone, so it’s important to ensure you’re feeling confident before your shoot! Here’s a handful of tips to help make your experience even more FUN and exhilarating than you could ever imagine!
5 Tips To Ensure You Love Your Boudoir Photos
Invite Your Besties
Grab your sisters and your besties to be your own personal Kris Jenners! I’ll be on watch for fly away hairs and the best angles, but only your true besties can call out your back boobs and to remind you to fix your face.It’s always MORE fun with your girls anyway! Invite them!
Invest In One or Two Bad Ass Outfits
Your lingerie doesn’t have to be expensive, but it should make you feel comfortable and sexy! A little lace, silk or even oversized cozy sweaters work wonders! I even have a whole collection of affordable amazon finds to share!
Pin Your Favorite Poses and Styles
Personally, I love when my girls share their inspiration and the vibe they’re looking for! It helps to determine your comfort level and personal style. Although the images will be different, it helps to have an idea of the images you love most!
Invest in Full Glam
There’s a magical transformation that makes you FEEL like a goddess with a full head of curls and a polished look! I love working with the best bay area make up artists to ensure you’re pampered and feeling the FIRE before your shoot! Just a little make up and a POP of eye lashes can enhance your experience.
Pick Your Favorite Tunes and Let’s Party
I love me some LIZZO, Britney Spears, Beyonce and Miranda Lambert to vibrate the walls! We’ll have some fun and upbeat 90’s hits blasting while we get ready, but YOU get to pick your tunes during your shoot!
BONUS: Just Be You
Your shoot will push you out of your comfort zone and unleash the fire inside you! Even though you may be gifting these images to your fiancé, they’re really for YOU! Let me help you see yourself in the best light, the way I see you shine!
