Boudoir. The most under-rated experience
"I am trying to lose these last 15 pounds after having the baby."
"I am waiting to get these tan lines evened out."
"I can't do my makeup and hair like the other girls."
"I am waiting until I am comfortable with my naked self."
Ladies... these are all valid concerns.
*B U T* I am here to tell you, that YOU ARE GORGEOUS. JUST. THE. WAY. YOU. ARE.
You are beautiful. You are courageous. You are ENOUGH.
And for those in the back...
YOU ARE ENOUGH.
You are strong. You are the backbone of your family. You are the best version of you, that you can possibly be. And together, we need to CELEBRATE that!!!
Over the course of the last 5 months, I have worked with women to build a portfolio, and to learn posing for body types, and what lighting works best for certain situations. I have poured myself into learning, and I LOVE IT!! I love making women feel wonderful in their skin. Some were self-conscious because of a scar, or a poorly placed tattoo. Some had concerns about body image or unflattering hair. But rest assured, I have AMAZING hair and makeup artists that truly bring out the beauty in each woman.
And now... I HAVE MY OWN BOUDOIR STUDIO!!!
Check out some of these BOMBSHELLS!!!
Meet Amanda - Skater, bookworm, and referee of 3.
She came in with no expectations. She brought a couple of jerseys from home, and she ROCKED THEM!!
And then there was Monica. She was SO READY for this day. This woman has gone through a transformation of her own - lost a ton of weight and wanted to CELEBRATE! I will never forget, she saw one of the images on the back of the camera and said,
"Whoa - I look like Marilyn Monroe!"
At that very moment, I knew that this is what I was meant to be doing.
Before you ask, I do NOT require ladies to share their images. I have permission to share the images above. I will not share images without written permission. I totally understand - everyone has a job, a family, and a lifestyle to maintain. I keep everything on a password protected computer, store everything on a password protected external hard drive, and I photograph and edit all of the images taken by Je Suis Boudoir, and Painting with Light.
Thank you to the ladies quoted and pictured. Special thank you to the ladies that brought me to where I am today.
