99% of my clients are real women. Women whose self confidence and self love shattered at some point during their adolescent years. One of the moments that I would love to take away from you. That voice in the back of your head telling you you’ll never get it right, the lump in the back of your throat when you wonder if you’ll ever be good enough. I would take away the feelings of disgust when you critique your body in the mirror… sometimes not even being able to look yourself in the eyes. I would take away the nights you lay awake, wondering if you’ll have the strength to conquer a new day. I would take away your loneliness, your exhaustion, your grief. I would take away that side of you that has decided you CAN’T and WON’T ever be able to “be sexy.”
Two weeks ago, I discussed how I love traveling to women who cannot travel to me to give the experience of boudoir. #TheTravelingBoudoirPhotographer. I am so happy to travel to you and cater to your needs and desires. I am so happy I met this client down in Suwanee, she is a true Georgia peach!
One day I received an inquiry from a beautiful woman that lives in North Carolina. I was jumping with joy when I heard someone so far away has heard of my business and couldn’t resist visiting and booking a session with me to gift her soon-to-be 30 year old hubby! She has the sweetest southern accent that I wish I can steal, haha. Now, let’s hear what she has to say before and after her session.
I am in awe every single day. When I photographed my very first boudoir sesh (my best friend, in my bedroom), never did I EVER think that it would take me out of small town, USA and (hopefully in the near future) around the world, meeting absolutely incredible women that I may never had another chance to meet.
I am in awe every single day. When I photographed my very first boudoir session, never did I EVER think that I would meet such amazing women with inspiring stories that I may have never had another chance to meet.
What makes your images amazing isn’t the outfits, the hair/makeup (although my hair and makeup ladies are BOSS), the bedroom, or even my skills. What makes them special is what they represent. You, stepping out of that perfectly comfortable bubble that is your comfort zone, and doing something you never thought you could. You, surrendering to the process and allowing someone you don’t know to see you at your most vulnerable. I promise, I don’t take that lightly. It is my greatest honor, and my Earthly purpose.
When clients come back to me telling me how much their significant other loved the gift of boudoir, my heart melts. These girls ARE magazine worthy. Not only did these women receive one of the best empowering boudoir experiences, but they are also left with a gorgeous album to commemorate their experience to share with their loved one. These are REAL women with REAL stories. And their stories always inspire me.
This incredible woman, who have left an everlasting impression on my heart, gave me permission to share her photos! You’d never know it: but she has had many battles and insecurities of her own. Upon booking her session with me, she told me a little about herself and why she thinks she deserved a boudoir session. She is overcoming insecurities.
When my clients leave after having their one-on-one experience with me, they know how fabulous they are. The confidence exudes from their photos and that makes such a drastic difference between what you see in the mirror and your photos. It’s not about how you look but rather how you feel about the way you look. Confidence is truly a beautiful thing. Confidence is what we all need. Confidence, self acceptance, and personality is what I bring out in the women I photograph. I need you to know you’re perfect now. It is my job to coach and find the model within you that I know is there.
Some of us forget what it’s like to feel beautiful and strong along the way. We get busy with our lives our family and our job. Most of us women struggle a self image. Why do we struggle with this? Because we internalize the unrealistic physical expectations that are portrayed through the media and often feel dowdy, unappealing, and inferior. I’m telling you that you are lovely.
