Boudoir Photography...WHY????

AHHHH, feeling attractive can do wonders for a person's self-esteem! I very rarely get to shoot a boudoir session, but I enjoy the process of watching a client blossom with confidence as the shoot progresses. People ask me things like "Who would they ever show these pictures to?" and "What do they do with such personal & private images?"

I can answer that easily enough. They find themselves, they find their strength, their courage, their confidence, and they sometimes discover things about themselves. They do these sessions for their spouses as a gift (Valentine's Day is just around the corner!), for modeling portfolios, or in the case of this stunningly beautiful woman, to show people that curvy is sexy.

This gorgeous client is a mom of two, & a physical fitness trainer. Her husband is the body builder in this image I shot last year.

She is in great shape, and will always be a curvy woman. How awesome is it that she sees the need & is willing to deliver the proof that curvy is sexy! Too many of our young girls today become anorexic or bulimic to meet the standard we see every day in the media. As a physical fitness trainer this concerns her, but more so as a mom of two young girls.

I was proud to be part of this positive message for our young women, and I look forward to getting more opportunities to shoot boudoir in the future. It may be fun to play dress-up, but it's rewarding to play dress-down.
