Real women. Real Experiences.
This blog shares real boudoir experiences from real women, plus tips from behind the camera.
I also am a strong proponent for complete freedom in self-expression and women living their lives in the way that makes them feel the most empowered. Along the same lines, during the in-person consultation and the session itself at my studio, I am completely open to both modesty and nudity – it doesn’t matter to me. My studio is a safe space without judgement.
CONGRATULATIONS to the beautiful Ms. R who just got married this past weekend and is going to surprise her husband with these when her album comes in! She would be the first to tell you that doing a boudoir session was SO outside of her comfort zone and she was incredibly nervous…but can you just LOOK at that smile?! I seriously cannot wait to hear her partner’s reaction when he finds out she did this – but am more excited to know that she feels incredible. 💜
Let me start by saying that having intimate portraits taken as a couple is a lot less steamy than you may think. It’s a professional shoot and you have someone (me) pointing a camera at the two of you and telling you specifically how to pose the entire time, which takes away from the, erm…sexy vibe.
“Going into this, I wanted to have something special to give my husband, but after seeing my pictures….I realized this was more for me than him. I have always struggled with self-confidence and still do even after the shoot. But seeing myself in a different point of view really did give me a sense of love for my body that I have never had before. In my typically day to day life, I forget what self love is and focus on what is around me.”
