Why go through the effort of taking time out of your day to sit through hair and make-up application and slip into something alluring? Who or what is the inspiration? I have been given the honor of capturing many beautiful women who all have a different story and reason to have a boudoir photo session.
Sometimes, it’s the memory of that wedding day when the bride gives her groom a memory album as a wedding gift so he’ll never forget how beautiful she was the day he married her.
Perhaps, it’s weight loss. That “before” and “after” shot to remember that emotional journey in reaching that challenging goal and wanting to celebrate new curves.
There are women who embrace their Plus Size curves, who are proud of who they are. It is so amazing to know that someone loves and appreciates their beautiful existence.
Some of us just want validation that we are beautiful outside as much as we are on the inside.
I am reminded of the character Joey in an episode of Friends where he claims he can make “anything sound sexy”. An example was his version of “grandma’s chicken soup”. A mellow, slow romantic tone, a steamy seductive look, a mischievous smile with that slight lift of the eyebrow, and you’ve accomplished amazing chicken soup.
Whatever the reason, whatever your inspiration, it is my job to capture the essence of you. Each angle I shoot, every slight move with an alluring smile or that serious aloof pose, will bring out many different sides of who you are. As women, we go through so much throughout our lives. We try to remain strong, yet feminine. A boudoir session sometimes reveals our inner-self. Find your inspiration and celebrate your curves; celebrate who you are. Indulge because you deserve it.
… and yes, if your inspiration is chicken soup, bring it to the session.
