"She was powerful, not because she wasn't scared but because she went on so strongly, despite the fear." - Atticus
After many years of contemplating, I have finally decided to bite the bullet and create a blog. About time right?! I'm super stoked to be sharing it with you and can't wait to get the posts rolling out. Here on The Boudoir Belle Blog you will see up close and behind the scenes of our everyday life working in this wonderful & dreamlike business of Boudoir Photography. Some other fun things you will see are full shoots, stories from our clients and their experiences working with us, tips and tricks of the trade, encouragement, beauty, love and all things empowering and sexy. We hope that you find encouragement here, as well as new found love for yourself and your body.
First up on the blog is one of our incredible hair and makeup artist, Lauren. What a dream it was to photograph her. Seldom do my clients walk in the door and attack their shoot head on, truly embracing the skin they are in. Lauren is typically shy, but once she got into the poses and in front of the camera, she completely allowed herself to let go and be vulnerable... resulting in some amazing and emotional images! We love when clients allow themselves to really feel empowered in their bodies. It truly shows in the images.
I am loving seeing more and MORE of my clients do just this. Unafraid to be shamelessly feminine and eager to learn to love their bodies again and view themselves with utmost adoration and appreciation for who they are. Don't be afraid to explore your sensual side and throw all your fears and insecurities out the window, if even for a day. Because I can guarantee that feeling will stick with you for much longer than just your shoot day!
Lauren helped show us that it is OK to embrace your body and be fearless and UNASHAMED.
