So excited to share with you about Dannelis and Gabi’s session. This gorgeous couple have the most amazing story behind their relationship and it was a treat to take photos of them for Dannelis’s birthday. Danny first found me on Thumbtack when she was researching boudoir photographers. We hopped on a call and there was an instant ease between the two of us. She told me she had been wanting to do a shoot forever and with her birthday coming up, it was a perfect time. She mentioned bringing her girlfriend Gabi and I was all for it! We planned on taking photos of both Dannelis separately, and then photos of the two of them together.
When they arrived we sat down for Dannelis to get her hair and makeup done. The two of them grew up in the same town in New Jersey. Dannelis admitted that she had a crush on Gabi in high school but was too shy to do anything about it. Years later, they reconnected on social media (obviously). Dannelis kept asking Gabi to hang out but Gabi thought Dannelis was just being nice. Finally, Gabi got it and they have been together ever since. I think you can tell from these photos they make an amazing couple.
My favorite part of the shoot was that the session was unique to them. Dannelis was celebrating her birthday, a common reason women do boudoir, but she also wanted Gabi to be an important part of it. Finding out which poses worked the best so that both of them felt comfortable was super rewarding.
