Boudoir photography is for ANY woman.  I am lucky enough to meet every type of woman from personality to shape, and want to know one thing we have in common? We start out intrigued by the idea of capturing ourselves in a boudoir session, and then that intrigue is followed with a "but".  Let's look at some common objectives: 

But I need to lose weight…
But I’ve never done a shoot like this..
But I don’t think I’m pretty enough…
But I'm to old...
But my hands are to big…
But I just broke up with my significant other…
But I’m awkward and would never look like other women in these photos…

I hear these objections and I think what a shame.  The job of a skilled boudoir photographer is to make any women of any age, ethnicity or body shape feel beautiful, and to create gorgeous images that they will love.  Photography is so powerful and can be so uplifting. It can debunk all of the objections listed above.  When clients come back for their image reveals, I see how they look at themselves in a whole new light; as a beautiful, sensual and strong women that deserves everything she is willing to go after in this life. 

I recently encountered this scenario; where I heard yet again, another objection.  This time it was from a friend of mine that I’d known since the very first moment I decided I wanted to be a boudoir photographer 5 years ago.  She was my esthetician at the time and was so excited for me. She wanted to book a shoot for herself!  I, of course, was thrilled for the opportunity to work with her and we made a trade.  Facials for photos:)  I visited her for my package of facials which we had traded for her boudoir photography session.  The sad part is that she never came into the studio for her photo shoot!  There was always an objection.. I need to lose weight or I just broke up with my boyfriend followed by every other reason you could think of!  I was so bummed but I thought, someday I hope to make this shoot happen.

Fast forward 5 years later, my friend Ms. S called me and asked if she could use our trade towards a group photo and head shot session for her staff.  I obliged and we created, what she called, some “bad ass” images.  I was happy that I could finally follow through on my end of the trade we had made, but I still felt like she had short changed herself.  I really wanted to give her this experience knowing she would love the results.  As I was visiting her brow and eyelash studio recently, she introduced me to one of her clients bragging about my beautiful work and giving me a great word of mouth recommendation.  I asked Ms. S again, "I’ve been doing this now for 5 years, when are you going to finally come in for your own session?"  She said, “when I lose weight.”  As you can imagine, my skills and confidence as a boudoir photographer has grown over this amount of time and I knew I could deliver such a wonderful experience and beautiful images, so I halted at that statement and said, Ms. S, “I don’t ever want to hear you utter those words again!”  You are gorgeous as you are and you don’t need to lose a thing.  What your losing now is time and an opportunity to do something amazing for yourself.  She chuckled and agreed that I was right and had nothing else to say…  Two days later Ms. S called me and said I’m ready to book my boudoir shoot.  I’m going to trust you and embrace what I have :)  Here are some images from her session!
