“You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.” ~ Amy Bloom
So many women have a terrible relationship with their own bodies and I mean to put a stop to that. Boudoir photography (or intimate photography or glamour photography – it’s all the same) is the perfect way for me to do it. Every client I’ve worked with over the past seven years has been beautiful just the way they were and they’ve all loved the experience and how they looked in their photos.
There are more reasons to have your photos done than there are NOT to. My first back to work client had her photos done to surprise her husband on their wedding day. I’ve done sessions for anniversary gifts, birthday celebrations or milestone dates. My favorite sessions have been the ones where the client does it for themselves, those are the ones that make my heart sing.
“Acceptance” and “self-love” and “body positivity” are huge buzzwords/phrases in social media but nothing has changed in my opinion. The Kardashian/Jenner clan are still Photoshopping their photos to the point their own kids wouldn’t recognize them, but they aren’t the only ones. SM “influencers” are getting their lips and their boobs and their asses filled at an alarming rate – it’s to the point that everyone looks the same: poofy lips, permanently alarmed eyebrows, fake high cheekbones, huge badonkadonks on tiny bodies … there is no individuality on the Internet and that is SAD.
Boudoir photography isn’t about being a size three (no one is a size three and you can’t convince me otherwise, lol). You don’t have to be 23 or weigh 105 lbs … EVERY BODY IS A BOUDOIR BODY and we’ll prove it to you!
Photography isn’t about changing your looks. Photography is about having a memory you can hold in your hand that makes you remember how you felt that day. I edit your photos, but you will never look as though you weigh 30 lbs less or wear three sizes smaller. If you ask for that kind of editing, we’re gonna have a long talk, doll. I may not be the photographer for you.
Speaking of photographers, you should hire a photographer that you feel comfortable with. Don’t hire someone because of their pricing (high prices don’t necessarily mean good service and low prices don’t have to mean crap work). That’s why I like to meet with you BEFORE you book a session. It’s only fair that you get to see what a goofball I am, as well as see just how important it is for me to give you the type of session that will bring out the best in you.
I’ll answer all of your questions, including the ones you may not even know you have. I want you to feel comfortable with me because being in front of a camera, dressed in the tiniest of outfits will make you feel vulnerable and that’s SCARY! But Ipromise, by the time we’re done you’ll have had the best time of your life!
