Why I'm a Boudoir Photographer

Why Boudoir?

Boudoir photography is fine art of the female form. But it’s also much, much more than that. It’s about loving and celebrating yourself. It’s also one of the most fun and empowering things you can do for yourself; celebrating who you are. It’s about having fun and feeling the incredible transformation that happens between the moment you walk through the studio door and when you walk out after your session. It’s about feeling amazing and beautiful, something every person is worthy of experiencing. Especially you!

As one of our clients aptly said, “It’s not about loving your body once you get to your ideal. It’s about loving it through the journey.”

We help our clients appreciate who they are, what they’ve done, and even start falling in love with themselves again. We can even help you bring out that inner goddess you’ve got hidden away in there.

Culture and society promotes false, unhealthy & unrealistic beauty standards. Most women feel shame about their bodies. Showing clients ~ no matter their age, shape or size ~ that they’re beautiful just the way they are – with no conditions – has been a real gift for me and changed the way I see people, and even myself. Creating incredible boudoir experiences and images of my clients has become my passion and the prime focus of my photography business since 2017.

We are all glorious, radiant and remarkable. But sometimes it takes someone else to show us how beautiful we truly are. Everyone deserves to see themselves in this way, and for us, it’s the greatest gift to be able to do so for our clients.

The Client Transformation

One of the best parts of being a boudoir photographer is watching the transformation from nervous to goddess that takes place at my studio. From the moment you sit in the chair for hair and makeup, champagne in hand, those feelings of nervousness and anxiety quickly fall away.

Then the shoot begins. It’s super fun! First, I’ll go over all the posing tips so you don’t have to worry about anything. I’ll even demonstrate the poses for you. If I can do it, so can you! It’s hard to know how great you’re doing without seeing a few shots, which is why I’ll show you a picture or two on the back of my camera. Most can’t believe it’s them that they’re seeing. This is where their goddess starts to shine and the rest of the session is a barrel of laughs!

A Bit About My Personal Journey

I grew up hating my body. I did all sorts of horrible things to it. I tried to starve it, I exercised obsessively, and I even experienced a few short bouts of bulimia. Why? Because I didn’t look anything like the girls and women I saw on the covers of magazines, and I didn’t feel beautiful. Those feelings of body loathing lessened softly with age, but I still couldn’t completely accept my body. It was through shooting boudoir that I began to see beauty in other women through their own transformations, and it started to spill off on me in an incredible way. I knew I needed to book my own boudoir session so I could have the same experience I was creating for my clients.

Yup! That’s me. There’s about a decade of my life with not a single photo of me ever taken. I always took the pictures so I wouldn’t have to be in them. But I was tired of feeling ashamed of my body and hiding behind the camera. So, I faced one of my greatest fears ~ being in front of the camera ~ and booked my own boudoir session. It’s one of the most liberating experiences I’ve ever had!

Boudoir photography is a celebration of your body and who you truly are. I take pride in being able to help show  women how to love, accept and celebrate their bodies, their battles & scars and victories. Let us help you find that inner goddess you’ve got hiding in there!

If you do choose to book a session, no matter how you walk in (super confident and excited, or terrified and nervous), I assure you that you’ll leave appreciating yourself more than when you entered.
