When I met with Miss B the first time, to book and plan her session, I was extremely excited to get to work with her. She has this amazing face that you cannot help but remember. I think she doesn’t fully realize how much her session affected my day, she is just that modest. She owned this session!! I think that when you finally just commit to doing something so out of your comfort zone, it becomes easier, because you’re to the point of no return right? It’s not like you can back out now!! lol. Well, I’m sure if you really felt like you were going to puke if you stayed, then I’d let you out . . . lol
Now really, ladies, what’s holding you back from booking that boudoir session you’ve always thought of doing?
Is it confidence? …little hint. . . a boudoir session will get you more of that. And a lot more too 🙂
Is it fear of being naked in front of a stranger? We will not be strangers after our first meeting (consultation). You might even be baring all with no problem by the time your session rolls around.
Do you friends think you’re crazy? I’d say you need new friends. 🙂
Is it money? I have many different packages to choose from, AND I have payment plans. This seriously is the best investment you could make for yourself, other than good food to feed your body and good exercise (if you like that sort of thing) ( I think I do, but when I go to do it I tell myself I don’t have time, or I’m too tired, or or or)
Quit making excuses. Come see me. Meet with me. Tell me why you want to do this. Tell me why you’re afraid. Or tell me why you’re so excited!! I love to talk about boudoir, you know why? It’s because of YOU!!! YOU all make me love working with you. Every.single.one.of.you. You are all so different and exciting and beautiful and you should be proud of who you are!!!
Ok, on with the sharing of Miss B. . . because her session NEEDS to be shared. . . DAMN this girl is hot!!! Show her some love by liking this post!!!

When I think about the kind of portraits I would love to have for my own boudoir session, I’d have to say a mix of both, like the lovely Miss “L” had me make of her. There’s just something about studio light that I can’t quite get enough of!! Maybe it’s the complete control I have when I use it? Yes, that must be it. I’m a bit of a control freak. So when this lovely lady told me to go ahead and make whatever kind of portraits I wanted, I was thrilled. 🙂 And she rocked every pose and every outfit, like a pro! These would be a gift for her groom, (very lucky guy) which is pretty much 75% of the time. I often wonder what goes through the minds of the lucky recipients when viewing their gifts. . . . hmmmm, that could be a completely different kind of blog post I’m sure. 🙂
Hair and makeup by the talented Jennifer Draude Link to her FB page We were going for a beautifully natural look, I LOVE the outcome!!
We were old high school friends who hadn’t seen each other since grad. It was an amazing process from start to finish for me because along with the qualities I remembered about her in school, I was also seeing a completely different side of her. (lol, not just because she had minimal clothing on). She still has those funny quirks that make her who she was back then, but she has grown as an individual and has become so much more wise. She is a sexy vixen on the outside, but her soul shares the vixen quality along with this mature,loving and hilarious side. I am proud of the woman she has become. Not that she wasn’t that way before, I just had more time to really appreciate it this time, because I wasn’t so filled with jealousy at her seemingly innate ability to win everyone over. The things that consume us as teenagers. If I could go back I would tell myself everything is going to be ok. They are human, just like you. We all start somewhere. Some of us just take a little longer. xoxo
I photographed Miss “B” back in November, it would be a Christmas gift for her special guy. It was my first evening boudoir session in the new studio, and I loved it! Back to my fully strobe shoots, I can get kind of hooked on shooting in natural light. Having had all of my sessions begin in the morning, I was kind of spoiled. 🙂 As much as I love the natural light (it can be a pain sometimes), this session brought back my love for strobe lighting! Most of my boudoir sessions will have a mix of studio light and natural light unless you request either one or the other.
I am loving all of these bodysuits that are coming into the studio lately, and I am also loving how they look in black and white. They make such a statement!! I’ve heard that LaSenza carries some now, so those of you shopping in just RedDeer, go check it out for your upcoming boudoir session!! Of course I can’t post a black and white without a bare skin shot, this beautiful lady brought some gorgeous props with her, and again, the black and white is so yummy with these!!!
Miss J was an absolute doll to work with. So beautiful and confident, so nice to see in a young woman. Her tattoos are so well done, not that I’m a tattoo person, I’d probably pass out getting one I’m sure. But I do admire good work, and I certainly love to photograph it!! And gahhhhhhhh!! Those eyes!!!! The way they seem to go straight through to your soul, way to OWN this session J, You rocked it!! I will photograph you ANYTIME!
