Boudoir Party – Boudoir Photography in Wallingford, CT

These three ladies totally knew how to rock it in front of the camera! They were like right out of the Victoria Secret catalog! Part of that was due to the fact that Kelly of Makeup Artistry by Kelly Nesdale did their makeup! She did an amazing job glamming these girls up!!

Meet Diva A…


Meet Diva X…

I am loving the “Hugh Hefner” feel here! Love when my girls get creative with their outfits! You can never go wrong with bright, bold colors and a stunning red lip!


Pretty Wicked – A Painted Boudoir Session

Everyone knows that I love working with my good friend Jeff Simon of Simon917Ink and his incredible talent as a body painter. He helped my vision of a painted boudoir come to life! All of the makeup styling is by my dear friend and rock star makeup artist, Kaylie Chudyi.

The master at work.





Shout out to our gorgeous model Raysha! Way to rock it!!

I Adore…Lingerie!

Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love Boudoir shoots! I love being girly and spending the day with my clients and helping them express their inner goddess! For those of you that don’t know what a Boudoir session is, it is all about celebrating being a sexy, beautiful, and strong woman. The key element to any Boudoir session, is picking perfect lingerie. What woman can ever get enough of silk, satin, and lace? I asked Caitlin, fashionista extraordinaire of Haute Eyes, to offer her professional opinion on lingerie and to guest post on this super sexy topic!

Here’s what she has to say about LINGERIE…and make sure you click on all of the colors to see her suggested pieces! I love her choices!!!

When prepping for your boudoir shoot, whether its your first or fifth, its important to pay attention to detail. Posing in front of a lens with little left to the imagination can be intimidating, but with the proper direction you’ll feel at ease in no time. Before you step in front of the camera you’ll want to plan out each look that you want captured. There are endless amounts of lingerie to choose from but its important that you choose the right selections for your body type and personality. Skin tone, hair and eye color all come into play. Darker features go best with the cooler shades of the color wheel (bluesgreenspurples) and lighter features tend to go best with the warmer shades of the color wheel (pinksyellowsoranges). And the classics: redblackwhite and nude look great with all features given that the right shades are selected. 

Bright colors and feminine patterns and frills are incredibly fun to work with and are all the talk this season. But its important to be comfortable in your own skin and to have fun during the shoot. Try playing with different options – consider wearing a fun panty with your man’s favorite team’s hat on, or drape a silk robe around you, or wear a lace thong with a mens oxford shirt – be creative. Play a role, use props, tell a story, and most importantly be you.

I Adore…Haute Eyes

I have decided to start a new series called “I Adore…” and it will be featuring something that I am just loving at the moment! It might be a great vendor, a new blog to follow, fashion & makeup tips for your sessions with me, or anything that I am feeling passion for that day! Today, I am loving my girl Caitlin’s fashion blog called Haute Eyes. She uses her killer sense of style to offer fashion tips and advise to all you fashionistas out there. My favorite part is she can incorporate inexpensive pieces with those pricey ones to give you an overall amazing look.

Check out her site and be sure to follow her on Facebook!

To all of my couples out there…if you are looking for style advise for your engagement shoot, or even want to meet with her for a consultation for style advise on your wedding day, she is the girl to go to! I highly recommend Caitlin of Haute Eyes to help make your fashion desires become your reality for any occasion!

Stay tuned…maybe we can get Caitlin to do a few guest posts on the Amanda Rose Photography blog for some wedding and boudoir styling tips!! 🙂 Ok, now go follow her blog…you won’t regret it!!

Pretty Wicked – Body Paint Session

One of my favorite things about being an artist is collaborating with other artists! This is especially the case when I get together with body painter/superstar, Jeff Simon, of Simon917 and makeup artist/supermodel Kaylie Chudyi. Magic happens every time we work together…so why mess up a good thing, right?!

How it all begins…





I’m obsessed with these shoes!!!




Something a little different

I always love teaming up with crazy talented people, like Jeff Simon of Simon917Ink. He is an amazing artist that specializes in body painting. I wanted him to do some wild/different makeup for me for this shoot and this is what we came up with…


Both of my models have such beautiful eyes! Aren’t they just so piercing?!



Big thanks to Simon917Ink for these incredible body pieces!
