From Our Editors
For Karen Wilson, the appeal of boudoir photography all comes down to s-words: sassy, soulful, sweet, spicy, sophisticated, sexy. At her studio, Cha Cha Sugar Boudoir Photography, Karen strives to bring out these qualities in her female clientele with personally tailored on-location and in-studio sessions. Clients arrive to the photo shoot, where they can opt to sit for hairstyling and makeup applications by Cha Cha Sugar’s in-house stylists. Then, Karen puts her clients at ease, taking care to keep the environment fun and comfortable as she encourages ladies to strike sultry poses in cute dresses or get sassy in daring lingerie. Karen enhances the look of each confident pose with dramatic lighting that can create a glamorous atmosphere or mimic the look of a playful '50s-style pinup. Afterward, Karen preserves her customers' favorite images with products such as prints and accordion photo books.
