Get pampered, feel sexy, live your best life.
So, what is boudoir exactly? Odds are you have a friend or two who have booked a session in the past. You vaguely know it's photos in lingerie or your underwear. But what does it feel like? Is it awkward? Where do you even have a shoot like this? Relax, and I'm here to answer all your questions!
This event has 6 spots open. It will be an intimate event with lots of attitude. We're holding this babefest in a gorgeous house and there will be mimosas flowing, snacks galore, chick flicks playing...basically the best Saturday morning you've ever had. Hang out, relax, take some quiet time for yourself, or get to know some new friends. Your session includes professional hair & makeup for your shoot. Speaking of, let's talk about your photoshoot!
Your photo session will be exactly how you want it to be. Before your shoot, we'll talk about how naked you want to be on the scale of victorian high neck dress to only a g-string. I'll help you choose which outfits you want to wear and direct your posing every step of the way. Honestly, you will probably feel a little awkward at first, and that's perfectly ok! It IS awkward to have someone up in your business while you're mostly naked. You'll build more confidence as the shoot goes on, and obviously you'll love working with me, and we'll both be having so much fun that any awkwardness will be swept away quicker than you think. Don't forget, there will be mimosas.
After your session, you'll receive a gallery of proofs within a week. You'll get to pick out the 4 edited, high resolution images that come with your session, and purchase any extras image, prints, or albums you'd like. If you still need a little more convincing, here's some words from these lovely ladies you see featured in this post...
"When Kate asked if I was interested, I jumped at the chance for this opportunity! I have always wanted to do a boudoir session, but especially in this last year. I lost 35 pounds and kept it off for a year, and left an abusive relationship that left me with deep emotional scars. Through lots of hard work and determination, I'm healthier and happier than ever and loved the idea of commemorating my growth and self-love that I worked so hard to achieve. A boudoir shoot seemed like the perfect way to celebrate my body as it is and to remember how much love and happiness I am blessed with even when times get tough. I definitely had some preconceived notions that they could be awkward or that I wouldn't look a certain way because of my body or tattoos, and I'm happy to say this wasn't my experience at all. The whole team made me look and feel amazing, and I didn't feel awkward at all during the entire day. I left feeling empowered and antsy to see the photos. Kate helped a bunch with posing and choosing outfits out of my selections that fit the vibe. I'd recommend a boudoir session for anyone who's looking for a good dose of self-empowerment and love, a beautiful gift for their partner, or even for a portfolio of different styles of modeling. It is the ultimate glamour experience to arrive and get your hair and makeup done, sip tasty coffee, and free yourself from societal expectations of perfection and womanhood. It felt amazing to be around other inspiring women, and to give myself a gift that I can continue to love with prints! My partner travels half the year for work, and I know that he'll love the photos, too."
"I had seen boudoir pictures on Pinterest over the years and always thought it would be fun to do. Honestly though, I haven’t ever really felt comfortable with my body up until about a year ago. When I found out about the opportunity to do this and learned more about the vibe of the shoot, I was immediately intrigued--although scared that I wasn't really "model material" enough to do it. I took myself shopping to get excited though, and bought things that I usually picture on other people. Because, why the hell not?! While I hope that I’ll always feel good about my body, I know that I won’t look like this forever and someday I’ll look back and think, “damn, I wish I could see how good I looked then”. I was still super nervous about how the pictures would turn out though, as I don’t have any professional modeling experience, but so SO glad that didn't stop me from doing this. I really didn’t know what to expect, but it sure was a blast! That said, in a relatively short amount of time, Kate captured a lot of different angles—literally and figuratively: my smile and laugh, glowing skin (thanks Holly!) my hair, breasts and belly (thanks Mom!), a sly smirk, and a fierce sexiness that I wasn’t convinced I had in me, but clearly these photos put any doubts to rest. My fiancé was floored when he saw the photos, but even more impressive, I loved the photos of myself, the result every girl wishes for. I know Kate F., the coordinator, and she knows logistics like nobody else. The setting was absolutely gorgeous, and the cold brew coffee awaiting us was much appreciated. Everyone was there on time and gushing with ideas, outfit combos to try, and excitement for the day. We all immediately loosened up and morphed into girly mode while listening to throwback tunes—it felt like waking up from a sleepover with good friends. Kate F. cut off tags, folded my clothes, suggested outfit pairings, laughed at my jokes, and generally kept the positive energy flowing. Holly shared tips and tricks as she airbrushed me into a Sports Illustrated model, that somehow still looked like me (albeit, the best version of me). As we chatted, she customized the look as she got to know me better, adding extra lashes and a little glitter on my eyes, following suite with my "more is more" life philosophy. She suggested adding a red lip towards the end of my shoot, to vamp things up a bit. Above all, she was so kind and gracious. Kate M., the photographer, could probably moonlight as a lion tamer or snake charmer, if she wasn’t such a skilled photographer. She continuously reassured me that I was doing great, looking beautiful, and could do this, even when I felt like I was slipping into my usual self-conscious ways. When I asked her for more coaching, she gave it. When she told me how to lay or move, I did it. I’m still not sure how, but she captured the best of me, all of me. The cherry on top: the edited pictures arrived in just a few days’ time. Kate M. is a gem, and I look forward to working with her in the future to capture other special moments."
