Boudoir Fears – Edition 1: Wardrobe

Stephanie Stilkey 068 900x601 Boudoir Fears   Edition 1: Wardrobe

One of the most common comments/questions I hear from ladies who are interested in booking a session is that they aren’t sure what to wear. They don’t have anything, they don’t know what to shop for, or sometimes they just are too afraid or busy to even try and will show up with nothing! 

No worries! What to wear for your boudoir session is one of the main things we will discuss during your consultation! We will discuss styles that will flatter your specific body type, and talk about things that photograph well and what to avoid.   Continue reading »

Black Lace and Candlelight

Kalaa Wilson Brand Ambassador 099 900x601 Black Lace and Candlelight

 

This was my second session with Kalaa, who also happens to be one of our talented stylists. Her first session was a Bridal Boudoir session she did as a gift to her now husband. Shortly after her session she and I became good friends and she started working for the studio! Her first session was very sweet and feminine, she was nervous and unsure of herself, but when she came back for this session about a year later, she was full of so much more confidence that we were able to create a much more moody set of images, with a very sultry and sexy vibe.

Sexuality and Boudoir Photography

Monique Bearce Model Session 059 900x601 Sexuality and Boudoir Photography

Last night I happened across a conversation asking about how being a boudoir photographer affects your own sexuality, or how your sexuality affects your boudoir work, and it really inspired me to take a deep look at myself and really try to understand how the two connect for me.

Shooting boudoir is like being a Doctor to me, when I see clients nude (or nearly nude) regardless of gender, it does not affect me in a sexual way. I don’t look at them while they are changing (if they opt to not use the bathroom), and I don’t look at their body unless I’m looking THROUGH the camera, in which case I am only looking at angles, light, shape, etc. None of it is sexual.

Finding Yourself

jess1 900x643 Finding Yourself

 

I met my first husband when I was 16 years old. He started out sweet and caring, and it wasn’t long before I was pregnant. By our first anniversary I was miserable. All we did was fight and he had begun the process of isolating me from everyone I knew and who cared about me. That was the beginning of nearly 7 years of Hell.

By the age of 21 I was completely brainwashed, nearly suicidal and feeling hopeless.  I was lost and it was all I could do to get through each day without letting his words and actions destroy me completely. I started drinking heavily to escape my misery.

I finally got scared enough to leave in August of 2006 with 2 kids and one on the way and moved in with my estranged father…. We hadn’t spoken in nearly a year, because of my husband, yet he opened his home to me and my children. I managed to go back to school and got my GED, I got my own place for me and the kids, and I started to be able to see that I had value.

One day while I was out shopping, I decided to look at the workout videos and on a whim purchased Volume 1 of the Carmen Electra Aerobic Striptease collection. Continue reading »
