What is photography for the modern woman and who is she? Why do I do this style of photography?
Why have I start doing boudoir and beauty photography? Why do I do it?
I get asked that a lot. Why?
I think in the past we saw boudoir and beauty photography as something that women did for men. Y’know – sexy photos for the spouse. And while I’m not saying that woman aren’t giving these photos to their spouse, they are primarily doing these session for THEMSELVES which is a huge shift in mindset.
I had the best time during my Boudoir photoshoot with Michelle. She made me feel super comfortable and confident from the get go (which was important since I was basically in a thong within a few minutes of seeing her ;)). She made sure she got all the shots I had envisioned, always referring back to her inspiration paper that I had sent her prior to our shoot. She is professional and incredibly kind. I actually had a blast! And the pictures… oooh the pictures turned out perfect <3-Bita
So why do I do these sessions? I think I just realized that we don’t love ourselves enough. We go to the ends of the earth for our family and we get worn out and exhausted and forget who we once were and how amazing we once felt. And we need to celebrate who we are again – strong, beautiful women.
These sessions are there for you to feel empowered and confident. For you to feel amazing and look great. You are doing photography for the modern women – YOU.
This is an investment in your legacy and YOU. We work hard as mothers, career women and carers. Do something for yourself to make you feel great.
