The Secret to the Boudoir Experience......

The secret to all boudoir experiences is vulnerability. My best sessions are the ones where the women let me take all of the things that make them vulnerable away. The things that make them self concious, indecisive, or shy and turn them into a confident, strong & truthfully badass woman who walks out my studio door feeling like a whole new person.
"I can't believe that is me."
Is a line I hear quite a lot, not because it doesn't look like them but because they thought for some reason they couldn't look like that. 
"I don't know how to be sexy."  Or "I'm just not sexy"
LIES> LIES> LIES
Every woman has the desire to feel confident & beautiful & sexy and each can be. 
The thing to get there is letting yourself be vulnerable with me, and within moments I promise to have you embracing your true self, and your true beauty.
I tell people I love my business, because I do. I love everything about it. But its not the love for photography, its the love for the people. The emotions I can create, capture and be a part of make my heart full. The art that comes from those is  plus. But those emotions are what make my Sessions an Experience, not just a boudoir photoshoot.

My nerves are shot.... & it's all because I photographed my Mother's Boudoir

Last week I traveled to my wonderful hometown of little itty bitty Schenevus NY to photograph 6 beautiful ladies boudoir sessions. One of those sessions was my mother. It was about a week before I left that my nerves began to come in. I was photographing my mom. 
I know what you are thinking surely I have photographed my mother before, family photos and so on, but boudoir is so different. So intimate, so emotional, so demanding. But the thing is how rewarding it can be. But we are talking about my mom here right?

My mom, a woman who never saw herself as beautiful, always was talking herself down and not up. Even though she had recently worked her ass off on a beach body program and was up to 72 lbs lost she still was so full of self hate. This was going to be hard. Harder than any boudoir I had ever taken on. I was terrified. Terrified she wouldn't like her makeup, she wouldn't be comfortable, she wouldn't like the lingerie I had chosen, how the session went, how I made her feel, but most of all I was and am terrified that these photographs won't wake her up. That she still won't see how beautiful she is, that I will still have to hear," Oh I'm fat or look at my fat arms." that she won't absolutely love them and see her own beauty through my eyes.

Boudoir is a huge part of my heart it feeds me so much happiness and my soul so much light and I was terrified this shoot would change that, that I had met my match, I would have a client who still after everything didn't see her own beauty. My mom would still not believe she was beautiful, the most wonderful beautiful woman in my life wouldn't see what I see.

So I sit here writing this and attaching the very first few photographs from her session , for her to see for the first time. And I just hope, so much , that I did it.

Plus Size Beach Boudoir Session : Atlantic Beach North Carolina

For the last spot of my day in Atlantic Beach this past weekend the beautiful lady booked and told me she wanted to try to do some sexy shots in the water and on the beach! I was beyond excited ! Boudoir is one of my favorite things to shoot and with a beautiful face and body like hers I was totally for it! 

This lady helps to prove boudoir isn't about a certain size it's about owning it. The confidence in seeing the beauty in yourself and she definitely owned it!
