Boudoir is about more than just sexy images. It's about self-confidence, it's about feeling empowered and on top of the world, it's about accepting yourself EXACTLY as you are and realizing--hey...I'm HOT! A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Miss "Z" stating she was interested in a boudoir session though was particularly nervous as she's a self-proclaimed "curvy girl" and "not your typical 20-year-old-model-thin-girl". Upon meeting her, I saw nothing but a beautiful bod, killer eyes, and some AMAZING curves. Like....amazing jealousy-envoking curves. We had SO much fun during her session and got some absolutely incredible images!
I adore this first set that she took in a comfy over-sized sweater that her boyfriend got for her...
One of the top 3 reasons why I don't shoot boudoir in a studio is that I LOVE the variety of location and light I get by providing my clients with in-home sessions. In Miss "Z"'s guest bedroom, there was a soft orange glow that looked incredible in the final product...
...not to mention clients always feel so much more comfortable on their own turf!
Wowza!! Incredible, right?!
UPDATE::: A note from Miss Z herself after seeing this blog post:: "My advice to anyone who wants to do a shoot with you but would like to lose 10 or 20 pounds first...just do it! If you lose weight, you can do another one! Or you might just end up loving your body the way it is! You really are a genius with posing, lighting, retouching, and just making your subject feel totally comfortable. If I could change something about how much of my body I showed, I would wear LESS, not MORE..." YEAH! Now THAT's what I like to hear!!! xo
Mega-thanks again to the talented Lauren Davis of Hint of Shimmer for providing Miss "Z"'s glam makeup!
