So.....What Is Boudoir?
When most people think about boudoir they think about naked women posing on a bed or taking sexy photos to give to someone special. And while yes, that is a part of boudoir you should know it's not all of it. Boudoir photography is a way to document and celebrate yourself. It's a way to see yourself as everyone else sees you. Strong, sexy, powerful, fierce, beautiful. It's a way to empower yourself and really celebrate what makes you, well, you. I can't tell you how many times I hear women say that they could never do a boudoir shoot, and my answer is always- don't sell yourself short. YES YOU CAN! The most amazing part of my job is watching each woman that walks into my studio find her voice, celebrate her beauty, and gain confidence. It's a way to tell your story. It's a way to document all of those little pieces of you that few people get to see. It's a way to document the sides of you that are behind those walls that we put up, the personal parts of you. Your life, your body, your mindset all changes as you grow and change. Boudoir is a way to freeze those little changes and allows you the ability to look back on your life and relive those parts of you that evolved, matured, and changed.
I'm the girl behind the brand, behind the camera, and behind the computer screen. I'm not good at introductions. I'm an introverted extrovert, I have a big personality, I curse too much, I'm not trendy at all, and you're likely to see me in a tank top, shorts, the same pair of Birks that I've had for years. I've got ADHD, I'll lose my phone or camera at least once during your session, and I think there's so much more to people than what's in some bio box, but here I am trying to sum myself up anyway.
I'm passionate about boudoir because I believe that every woman should feel valued, sexy, and unstoppable. I don't think you have to be under 30, stick thin, and perfect to be beautiful and sexy. I believe that women should take up space, and I'll be real quick to say a big f*ck you to anyone who thinks we shouldn't.
