Phew! Even the name is tiring! Just kidding. I had the most amazing time meeting and photographing these beautiful women! I had SIX Boudoir Sessions in a row. Let me tell you, these women absolutely SLAYED their sessions. Not one of them disappointed when it came to bringing the heat and sass. They arched their butts off and pulled that RBF like CHAMPS! I am ALWAYS proud of my clients. Do you know what it takes for a woman to let you take portraits of her in lingerie or (GASP) nude? It takes a foundation of trust. My clients meet me and learn about me in my Facebook Boudoir group. I preach self confidence. I preach self love. I preach self care. I preach refilling your own cup before you can pour into anyone else's. I believe in these things. I want to show that Boudoir can be such a fulfilling experience.
What is it about women that makes us so self conscious? I've had many of my clients, even during these sessions, tell me that they feel awkward or don't know how to be sexy. I generally scoff, tell them they are in good hands and blaze into our session together head on. Some woman want to do this for their partners, some for themselves. I think many women don't think about the positive impact the session can truly have on their confidence, self image and self worth. My true hope is that during their sessions I made them feel comfortable, confident and sexy. That they never feel like a burden or like they "could've done better."
If you come to me without confidence, I will share some of mine with you, until you have built a foundation of your own. If you come to me uncomfortable in front of the camera, I will walk you through each and every step including where to hold your gaze. If you don't think you know how to pose, let me pose you. Right down to your hands, your lips, your hair. I will make a fool out of my self, getting down on the floor and showing you how to arch, how to get into poses. You will laugh at me. I will laugh at myself. You will have so much fun, you won't ever remember you were anxious. What I will deliver to you post session will be gorgeous portraits that may make you say "that's really me?" That's what happened to me when I saw my Boudoir portraits. It made me fall in love with myself. As I truly am. I wish the same and more for you.
Now, let me share with you some of the beautiful women I had the amazing opportunity of photographing in the first ever Breathless Reveries Boudoir Mini Marathon.
