Honestly, I have never liked the sound of the word "Boudoir"... but it's been growing on me a lot lately.
Boudoir to me means feeling sexy. Empowered. It's a day to feel pampered; to step out of the mundane feeling of how we look in our every day life, and feel the complete beauty we possess both inside, and out. It means feeling confident in our own skin to be raw and real. Even if your initial intention is to take boudoir photos for your significant other, you will leave knowing this was sincerely and authentically all for YOU.
I truly admire the women I photograph, and want nothing more than to show all my clients' bodies from a place of love and genuine beauty.
We, as women, have so much self-doubt (the little voice inside that says we need to be "younger, thinner, stronger..."). I want to show women not only their outer beauty, but their Inner Goddess - full of power.
If you are looking for a boudoir photographer, my best advice would be to find a photographer who makes you feel comfortable in this vulnerable state; who can showcase every ounce of your stunning body, and who has the style and look that makes you feel perfect just as you are.
I have a kick-ass, private Facebook group if you'd like to learn more. It's a place where women can chat about all things body, sex, motherhood, life... anything that makes us the incredible beings we are! (I will also post specials and events in this group, before they are announced publicly.)
