LBD Fall Boudoir Lookbook

When the day started, each woman came as herself, ready to be styled and transformed like a butterfly. Through listening to each other's experiences, jokes, and passions, there was an intimate familiarity built between one another, a sense of sisterhood and a sense of joy.

We traveled to the location where we were greeted by our radiantly warm and smiling photographer, Alexandra Kacha. They were captivating, creative, and eager to collaborate with us.

All the models helped each other add the finishing touches to each others’ looks. Then the photoshoot began.

Shiny marble floors lined the home and light poured through the large windows, along with the loving energy that swelled from all the creative females in it.
