So many of my clients come in and are nervous about having their photos taken in lingerie. It is natural to feel this way, I am the worst when it comes to getting in front of the camera, I sometimes freeze up myself! My husband laughs at me when he tries to take my picture, he gets mad because he can’t sneak up on me and take a candid photo. Now at my birthday party this year I did something fun, I invited several of my friends (all women) over for a photo party. We got dressed up and took pictures of each other. I decided to put myself in my clients shoes, if I am taking all these photos of people at my studio I should at least have some photos of myself too!
People have asked me how I get my clients so comfortable, well it’s hard to explain in just one post but here is where I start. Boudoir is like playing dress up. We put on make up, get our hair done and slip into some lingerie. It is like becoming someone else, or maybe we feel like we are a better version of ourselves maybe even the best version of ourselves! When you put on the different clothes, a different hat or sometimes just strip it down to the bare minimum, what happens is you are allowed to express yourself in ways you may have never known were possible. It is the freedom that is offered from a boudoir session that makes my clients so comfortable. You are free to be who you want to be, whether it is yourself or another version of yourself. It doesn’t matter, this is why so many people want to do more than one session! You can change who you are time and time again!
