Everyone deserves to feel loved, be loved, and to love themselves. As a photographer, it’s my job to capture life’s most unforgettable moments, and some of the most amazing moments happen during a boudoir shoot.
Why Do Boudoir?
A lot of people don’t understand why someone would want to do boudoir and put themselves in those outfits and positions in front of someone they don’t really know. Boudoir isn’t just about sexy photographs or suggestive poses. It’s about feeling confident in the skin you’re in. It’s about exploring a side of yourself you may not even know existed. Whether the photos are for your partner or just yourself, it’s hard to put into words the incredible feeling of physically seeing someone learn to love themselves.
We live in a society with ever fluctuating body and beauty standards. It’s hard to appreciate the skin we find ourselves in. I’m going to let you in on a secret. There is no perfect body! I have seen more shapes and sizes than most people ever will in my 10 years of shooting boudoir and not once have I thought one body was better than the other. In my eyes, I can find beauty in every BODY!
Boudoir photoshoots can be a little uncomfortable at first, but once we get those first few photos taken, it’s a whole new world. I show every client the back of my camera almost every position to put their mind at ease and usually, after seeing what I see, they are ecstatic. Most of them say: “That can’t be me!!!” Between the full hair and makeup, wardrobe full of outfit choices, it becomes a truly remarkable experience.
Being Comfortable & Confident
You don’t have to wear skimpy lingerie or show off every part of your body. You wear what you want to wear. From sharp blazers, full length nightgowns, or sports jerseys, I have seen and loved it all. This is all about you and making sure you are comfortable, and having fun!
Trust me when I say I understand what you’re going through. I have done my own boudoir shoot and I know it can be difficult, at first. When I was done and on my way out the door, I felt like a brand new person. I felt like I could take on the world, and you know what, I kind of did. From that day on, I have been more successful and more determined than ever to achieve my version of personal and professional success.
