Boudoir photography is a great way to surprise a loved one with something intimate and sexy. But it is about more than giving your special someone an extra special gift. Boudoir photography is about making you feel beautiful with who you are. During your shoot it is all about you. Who are you? What is important to you? What are you proud of? What do you love about yourself? All of these come through the camera with stunning displays of self-confidence.
Recently, I was able to work with a woman who embodies this very story. It is a story of inner and outer beauty that comes through a strong determination to be exactly what she wants to be. Miss E is 34-years-old and is a mother of four and a wife of almost 10 years. She worked hard to maintain her physical health by taking and teaching Zumba classes. Her shoot was about more than the typical lingerie and implied nudes. It was about empowering Miss E to feel good about herself and proud of her dedicated fitness work. It is about celebrating her success through photography of the beauty she has brought to the surface.
This was an inspiring shoot, a kind that I hope to have many more of in the future. Women are strong and they are beautiful and they deserve to celebrate themselves in a way that depicts that.
