Vintage Boudoir maternity shoot: Day 1
Welcome to the first instalment in my very own Vintage Boudoir ™ style maternity shoot!
Shooting these in the studio was just the cat’s pyjamas, as they used to say, and we laughed a lot (especially on the ice cream shots, which you’ll see on Thursday). James kept pointing at my belly because it sort of jiggles like Jell-o when I laugh hard.
Today, I have two looks to share with you. First is the pram shot. I can’t tell you how long it took us to track down an antique pram. We tried prop shops, Silver Cross, and all sorts of places. Katy eventually found one on eBay and it was just around the corner, too (these items are always “Pick up only” because they are HUGE). This particular pram has only had three owners since the 1960s and is in pretty good nick. James is actually really excited about pushing it around Wimbledon with Abdul in it. The shot of the both of us is going on the wall in the nursery.
The second is my Watermelon Shot. It had to be done! And, thankfully, watermelons had just come into season. I absolutely love this look and I’m considering wearing the dress when I go to see Lady Gaga on the Graham Norton Show on Thursday. Votes?
I want to give a special thanks to Katy Thomson, who is our lead photographer in Julia Boggio Studios and will be covering for me while I’m on leave. She did an awesome job with shooting these – and I’m not one of those Americans who throws the word “awesome” around lightly. Well done, Katy! Also, thank you to Georgina for the lovely outfits.
Tomorrow, it’s Officer and a Gentleman meets Popeye…
