BEAUTIFUL BOUDOIR: A LIBERATING EXPERIENCE
If you have been following my work for any length of time, you know I am extremely passionate about what I do. I look upon my calling as healing and transformative. There are some who may not agree…but then, I really do not care. And neither do my lovely clients who step into my sumptuous studio, a little apprehensive and excited but leave sexy, confident glamazons ready to be alluring and sensuous on their own terms.
Boudoir is life changing. It isn’t just a set of intimate photographs clicked to titillate husbands and SOs. More and more, I receive calls and booking requests from single ladies looking to unlock their inner sense of adventure and prove to themselves that they are every bit as beautiful in their own skin as the Victoria’s Secret’s archetypes of beauty!!
MY WORK MAKES ME AN ICONOCLAST!
It truly does. I go against the myths perpetuated by our commercialized society that only certain body types comply with the strict standards of ‘sexy’. I pull back the curtains and throw open admission to the elite and secret club of gorgeousness. With camera in hand, I allow your next door neighbor, the shy secretary who sits beside you on your bus ride home and the staid matron at the grocery store to get in touch with a bolder, more authoritative and ultimately more authentic self. The inner goddess who is wild and untamable and lives in each and every one of us!
BOUDOIR IS CHANGING….
Boudoir photography is a fun, more creative and infinitely expressive symbol of a woman’s empowerment. A declaration that she is the boss! I have had clients dissolve into tears at the sight of their glossy, professional shots that capture with unerring grace the light of their souls. They see themselves as they are meant to be because the camera my ladies, doesn’t lie.
Because of this almost therapeutic side of the sessions that the concept of boudoir shoots is changing. It is evolving from a mere token of appreciation and promise of lifelong conjugal bliss on the eve of marriage to raw and achingly beautiful portraits of the spirit, joy and triumph of real women.
BOUDOIR AS A SENSE OF ACHIEVEMENT
Boudoir is replacing tattoos. Women who have battled life threatening diseases that leave them with physical ravages and an undermined sense of confidence are turning to the camera of me and my peers to rediscover an appreciation for their bodies. They shout silently as they stare into the lens ‘You couldn’t beat me and you never will. You made me suffer…but here I am, ready to take life by the horns and prove to myself and the world that I have a hell of a lot more fight left in me!’
And I salute their courage.
BOUDOIR AS CATHARSIS
Why stop there! I have personally photographed quite a few strong and determined ladies who have left abusive relationships behind and embraced a boudoir shoot to celebrate their new-found freedom. Some have requested classic pin-up sessions to validate their self-worth while others have gone extreme to assert that they alone are in charge of what they want to expose and how.
The only common thing that has tied all my experiences has been the deep sense of gratitude in my clients as they start their new lives on a happier, more positive note. A boudoir shoot is a once in a life time experience. It may not make you prettier, but it will certainly leave you more beautiful.
With love and respect for you all!
