Even though I feel as though I chose photography, I can't help but think the actual subject matter chooses me. If you were to tell me six years ago that my favorite things to shoot would be weddings, food, and boudoir I don't think I would have believed you. However, as much as I have grown and changed as a person and as much as I have learned about photography, one thing still remains the same: I love making people feel something when they look at my pictures. And I love making people feel out right, jaw-dropping, beautiful.
Boudoir photography is an extension of that on SO many levels. It's obviously fun to get the pictures secretly made for someone special in your life, but the personal reward is even greater (I think.) As a woman, there's a level of confidence you feel on a good hair day or when you wear heels on a night out with the girls. But to strip all of that away and love your body and who you are (freckles and all) is priceless. I can't tell you enough how rewarding it is for me to share this with people. It makes me love my job more than I already do.
The previous photos were taken of a wonderful client that jumped on board for my Valentines Boudoir Special back in January. I fell in love with so many of her photos, but could only show a few out of privacy. Boudoir sessions can be done YEAR ROUND so if you're interested please email me or give me a call. I'd love to meet for coffee, show you a portfolio, and answer any of your questions.
And just for fun, here's a quote from this client after seeing her pictures for the first time:
"OH MY GOD!!!!! THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING! Damn girl you are one gifted artist! My boyfriend said it was the best thing a girlfriend had ever given him. He was totally surprised! I keep catching him looking at the book. Thanks again for all your hard work."
