“Doing a boudoir session should be something you choose to do for yourself.” – Shawna.
Every boudoir photography site I’ve seen always starts out with the premise that you should do a boudoir session “for that special someone.” Well, you know what? I’m going to buck against that. You know what I think? I think the most important reason why a woman should consider doing a boudoir session is to do it for themselves.
You DO matter, you ARE worth it, and you ABSOLUTELY deserve it. Empower yourself.
Boudoir, in my mind, is a place where a woman can drop her mental and physical armor and just enjoy being a woman.
The best thing about doing what I do means I get to work with such a diverse group of people. I have yet had a “typical” boudoir session. Each of us is unique. We are perfectly, wonderfully, ourselves.
I’m not talking just about age, ethnicity, or size. I’m also taking about personalities. Which means, when combined with my desire to capture them simply being themselves, that no two sessions will ever be the same.
She wanted something special to give to her husband for their wedding anniversary.
Miss H found herself in a quandary. Her wedding anniversary was coming up and she was struggling for idea on what to get her other half. Nothing was standing out as a clear winner. She wanted something personal, that would mean something, and that her husband would cherish.
Then she hit upon the idea of a boudoir session.
She was intrigued with the idea as it would check off a lot of boxes. It would be personal, from her heart, it would be cherished, and it would be a chance to show off her hard work at the gym.
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.
There’s always a first time for everyone. Even a seasoned pro.
This is one of those entries where I’m going to let the person in the photos do most of the talking. I just want to take a moment to thank everyone that has supported me on this journey. I truly love creating remarkable memories with amazing people. I am a better person because of each of you.
When Mark first approached me about doing a form session I was not sure what he meant. He then sent me some previous work he has done and I was immediately intrigued. The photos of the Greek sculpture-like bodies drew me in. Although I was asked to do the shoot Mark, as usual, left me completely in charge. I was completely comfortable the entire time and excited to see the results…which were AMAZING! Seeing just body parts captured in that way is amazing to see. All the hard work from training of each little groove and cut was caught on camera. I’m already looking forward to the next one. – Amira
The human form is a thing of absolute beauty to me. I am endlessly fascinated by the way it works, how it moves and the million little details that are unique to each of us. To elevate a single form to a work of art is the ultimate experience in my eyes. Any chance anyone gives me to explore, document, and bring out the beauty that is the human body is chance I’ll gladly accept.
