Location: The Alexis Hotel – Downtown Seattle, WA
Hair & Makeup: Jamyrlyn Mallory
This shoot is the perfect example of why it is so important to developing a clear concept of what you want from your boudoir shoot and use that to guide your location choice. Robin did this with flying colors. Her inspiration: Dita Von Teese. She compiled inspiration images for me and we both set to out to find vintage hotels in Seattle. We finally decided the Alexis Hotel would get us the closest results. She also brought a phenomenal dress, which meant we were able to explore other parts of this gorgeous hotel. This added to the variety and story we wanted to tell. Then it was just a matter of finding the light! That’s when I spotted this silver-snake-skin-amazingness right next to a window in a less traveled part of the lobby. Look at how it glows against that red!
