“I need to lose weight before I book my boudoir session.” Omg. Ladies, I hear this so frequently. It's one of the things I'm oddly most excited to hear when someone gives me a reason boudoir isn't for them. Why? Because it's the biggest lie ever. And it's my job to be a voice in your ear to nudge you away from that nonsense.
Photography is not about your size or your weight, because your size is not what defines you. The boudoir experience is about capturing your gorgeous body as it is right now. I know, I know. That sounds scary, right? Oh yeah, it does. That's because we've been told to be critical of our bodies, not celebrate and worship them. That is what boudoir is about, the subtle sexiness you'll inevitably exude as you and I begin to trust one another. It’s about documenting what makes you your true, authentic self and the love you have for the body that is uniquely yours.
Let me reassure you that with the right poses, wardrobe and lighting, you will not look at your finished images and see your flaws. There are so many different ways I can pose you that will elongate your body and accentuate individual body parts. Legs and back shots can be incredibly sexy, as are those that highlight your stomach or cleavage. Flattering poses are key, and I will show you all the right moves! You will see a gorgeous, confident woman whose body deserves to be celebrated. I've had clients tell me they can't believe they look that way, and I love hearing that because my response is always, "this is how the rest of us see you!" And it's true.
Before your session, you and I will discuss the wardrobe choices that will best flatter your figure. For example, if your tummy is an area you’d prefer to keep covered, a bra and panty set isn’t the best choice. If your booty isn’t your favorite feature, I’m going to recommend the most flattering shapes and styles. Great wardrobe options are everywhere (seriously, even Amazon is in on the lingerie game) and making choices that accentuate your favorite features. Small details like placing your arm in a certain location, or shooting from a different angle can make all the difference.
And remember, if you’re not comfortable in lingerie, you don’t have to wear it to have a super sexy session. Your favorite comfy tank top paired with some cute panties, a chunky sweater, even a cozy robe all photograph really well.
My job is to light and sculpt your photos in a way that will off your curves, and to highlight the little details that scream “sexy.” The curve of your neck, the small of your back, the tilt of your chin…these are all little things that will add up to produce a stunning session. My package choices include professional make-up, and this added benefit goes a long way towards making you feel more glamorous and confident.
Even if you think you’re “not good in front of the camera” or you live in a pair of yoga pants (so do I, honestly...who doesn't anymore, lol)... together we will uncover your inner sexy and you’ll absolutely love your boudoir experience and gorgeous photographs!
