She proves that fit women are sensual women.
I make it well known that there is no “ideal” age or fitness level when it comes to doing a boudoir session. Everyone has the ability to create amazing images. All it takes is a little faith in the right photographer. I’ve made it my goal to show exactly that.
Geraci (https://www.instagram.com/juniper_geraci/) recently reached out to me about working together. She is a woman of a certain age. Don’t bother guessing, I promise you, you won’t get it. She’s also a fitness enthusiast who works hard to look like she does.
When it comes to public perception, no one is safe. Some people have a hard time seeing women with hard bodies as sexy or feminine. You know me. Challenge accepted.
I’m going to be totally honest here, this was one of the easiest sessions I’ve ever done. Geraci’s confidence and openness is a very intoxicating mix from a photographer’s point of view. There was never a hesitation or break in confidence as she moved effortlessly and gracefully from pose to pose and scene to scene.
It took a little time just to get her to slow down with her poses as her boundless energy keeps her in constant motion. She was always three steps ahead of me. There’s a shot below where she is in full laugh as I just got done jokingly telling her there was no prize for first place and to slow down a bit. Enjoy the moment. Savor it. Embrace it.
After that she really opened up and just became this radiant being totally comfortable in her skin and sensuality. The whole point in any of my sessions is for the person to just enjoy being a woman.
To me, there’s nothing as powerful as a confident, sassy woman. The second half of the session I think I said a total of 3 sentences. I simply was in awe of her presence and spent all my energy tying to capture it properly.
I’ll end this entry with words from Geraci herself.
“I loved working with Mark! He’s super fun and captures wonderful, organic photos! Looking forward to working with him again.”
