When I think about what it is I love about being a photographer, at the very top of the list is making people feel beautiful, and showing them how truly amazing they are. I love it when I’m photographing someone, and they start to come alive, start to open up to the camera and let their spirit shine through. I love when this happens with engagement sessions and weddings, it makes me and my clients feel close. And so it felt like a very natural progression for me to start photographing boudoir. My clients and I already feel natural working together, and I know how to photograph them in their best light, while letting them feel comfortable, sexy and fun. Boudoir for me isn’t smutty, it’s glamorous, sensual, playful and sexy. Isn’t that what every girl wants to be?
And a little side story… Confession time, actually. A little over 4 years ago, just before Jamie and I got married, I had my own boudoir session done as a wedding gift. I was working as a graphic designer at the time. The moment I walked into my photographer’s studio, I felt at home. I had a blast throughout the shoot, and absolutely felt like a supermodel. I went home that evening with this giddy feeling inside… I wanted to be a photographer. I wanted to make people feel THIS amazing. It would be another year or so before I would even seriously consider that as a real possibility. Oh yeah, and in case you’re wondering, Jamie LOVED his gift ;-)
Ladies, if you have ever thought about doing this, give me a call or shoot me an email. You’ll be so glad you did!
