The Boudoir Experience
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word boudoir? Is it that 1990's photo featuring blurred skin and bright lights? Or is it the overly posed photograph of a woman in a position that is deemed pleasing to a man? Does that image in your head only feature women that fit a specific standard of beauty? You will find absolutely none of that here.
It is so easy to look at photos of ourselves and see things we would like to change. It might be our noses, or are stomachs are softer than they used to be, or we wish our hair would sit just right. I want to reframe your mindset and help you relearn how to view and love your body. These sessions are a chance to see yourself through someone else's eyes and take an afternoon for self-love and care.
How does it all work?
The first step is to take that leap of faith and decide to do a session. It takes courage to be that vulnerable (both physically and emotionally), but the payoff will be well worth it.
Before we take the photographs, we will set up a session that is the perfect reflection of you. This includes everything from finding the ideal location, to going over the look you want to rock, and how you want to feel while you are photographed. If you are unsure, we can take as much time as you need to get to the root of the real you and how we can capture that.
Every question you could possibly have will always be answered; your comfort is my highest priority.
So we are at the session, now what?
Once you arrive, it's time to be pampered with professional hair and makeup. The artists we work with will listen to you in order to execute precisely the look you desire, and not just what boudoir makeup "should look like." They are experienced with all skin tones and hair textures and will start off your day with a feeling of empowerment.
After you look and feel like a queen, we are ready for you to spend the afternoon dancing around the room to a playlist that helps you feel extraordinary. You are welcome to both my boudoir wardrobe and whatever outfits you like for your own.
So we finished the session, what happens now?
Two to three weeks after your session, we will meet back up in my studio or via Skype and reveal your images. This is a chance to sit back and see yourself without those negative thoughts that creep up in your head. It tends to be an emotional experience; the photos that you see will be you, often in a way that you have never seen yourself before.
After the tears or beaming grins have taken a pause, we go through the best ways to include those photos in your daily life via a variety of immaculate products. See more about the Ordering Session here.
