What Is Boudoir?
The actual definition of boudoir is, “a woman's bedroom or private room.” In photography terms, boudoir photography consists of intimate photos of a woman in a bedroom. To me, boudoir is a fun time for women look and feel beautiful and take some awesome photos for you or your spouse.
Why Do You Shoot Boudoir?
As a photographer, I want to women recognize their own beauty, no matter the size or shape of their body. Women are told everyday what they should and shouldn’t look like, making it easy to feel like we would be beautiful “if ________”. That is not the case. You are beautiful, not despite or because of your big thighs, cellulite, stretch marks, birthmarks, skinny legs, droopy eyes, frizzy hair—your beauty is independent of your physical appearance. I want to promote confidence and help you to rock the body you have been given. I shoot boudoir because I want to help you to feel as beautiful as you truly are.
What Should I Expect From My Session?
First and foremost, expect to feel BEAUTIFUL. When you arrive you will be greeted by a team of people that are so excited to be creating the perfect experience for you. We will chat about your preferred look and feel of the session and pick out which outfits will work best, then you’ll have the chance to get all dolled up by some crazy talented hair and makeup professionals. Then we’ll start snapping! There will be lots of laughing and the nervousness will fade away. After we’re done you will feel like a million bucks and be DYING to see the images... don’t worry, I’ll get them edited back to you as soon as I can!
Are You Going To Share My Images?
Only if you want me to. You will receive your images in a password-protected private gallery for your eyes only. They will only be shared per your approval.
“I'm so surprised with how pretty I look. I just haven't felt that pretty in a long time... I mean I don't have [a model’s body] or anything, but I think I look great! And that's what I've always wanted to think I look great myself.” –c
(This message is from a friend of a client) “So [my friend] is sending me some pictures [from her shoot]... ASHLEY. Thank you so much. She is crazy beautiful and her husband loves her so much but she has serious body issues and I've wanted her to do this for so long. And she's so happy with them. I can tell they're making her feel confident and sassy and they're going to blow [her husband] away. What you do is very important. You rock."
“I finally got the chance to see my photo book in person this weekend, and I wanted to take a second to thank you so much again for your immense talent and skill! It made me so happy and feel so good to see it all come together - my fiancé is going to absolutely love this gift when I finally give it to him, but even if it weren't for him, I am so glad that I was able to do this for myself! Thanks for making me feel so pretty!” –r
"Wow!! I LOVE the pictures and I know [my husband] is going to love them too!!" -a
"I just wanted to say thank you again! I looked through the pictures and couldn't believe how much I loved them! I am usually very critical of pictures of myself, so I was a little anxious to see if I would like them. Thank you for a great experience and for making me feel beautiful." -s
