Embrace your beauty

I have been lucky in my career to photograph some amazing women, and to show each one piece of herself that she has not seen before, or maybe lost along the way. As a woman, it is easy to put ourselves last on the list, but we need to make ourselves a priority and take time for ourselves. In each photoshoot I encourage you not only to reconnect with yourself but to embrace your beauty. Embrace it just as you are now; a strong, beautiful woman that should be celebrated.

I recently booked a photoshoot for myself with the very talented Sue Bryce.  I was hesitant to have the photos done since I have extra weight on me, and didn't feel confident in my skin.  I started telling myself all the excuses I hear from women who are afraid to have their photos taken. But this was the one and only Sue Bryce and sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone. So, even though I still had all my insecurities, I decided I would do it and rock it just as I am now. 

The day of the shoot I was so thrilled to have some TLC for myself; no kid, no stress, just relaxation with a glass of champaign while having my hair and makeup done. That was worth a million dollars right there!  Every woman needs that at least once in her life. After we finished with hair and makeup I put on my first dress and we started. From the moment she brought me on set, she directed and adjusted me into each pose.   I gave her 100% control and trusted her vision and allowed myself to just enjoy myself and the experience to the fullest. After lots of hairspray and dress changes we finished and I realized it was one of the best days of my life. I was nervous, and anxious, but also excited to see the person she captured.  One of the biggest things I learned that day was to love myself now. I may still have baby weight and not be in the shape I want, but I also will never be this age again. Now is the time to capture who I am.  I also thought about my son. I have treasured the gorgeous pictures of my mother and grandmother my entire life. I want to add to their legacy of beautiful, confident women so my son will know how important it is for all women, especially his future wife and daughters, to embrace their beauty. 

We all need people in our lives to inspire us and to help us remember that we are beautiful, we are strong, and our bodies are something to celebrate. I am very grateful to the lovely Sue Bryce for being that person in my journey, and I would love to be that person for you.

7 Things to Know Before Your First Boudoir Photo Shoot

So, you’re going to have your boudoir photos taken for the first time? How wonderful! I know, it feels a little nerve wracking and exciting all at the same time. Let me assure you, you’re making a fabulous decision. I booked my first shoot at Boudoir Betty’s in January of 2014 and am happily now the new Marketing and Sales Coordinator! 

Here are some things you may be thinking, I have a blemish on my arm! My face! Will it be awkward? Will my photographer be personable and down to earth? Are my lady parts going to show? I already shaved but maybe I should shave again… Heck I don’t even know what to expect! Rest assured, I too had all of these thoughts cross my mind among many others and none of these concerns are valid. I’m here to provide you with some helpful tips for your first boudoir shoot.

  • Don’t stress small things such as missing one stray eyebrow hair or being baby’s bottom smooth. You can’t see these tiny things in the photos! 

  • Do make sure not to wearing tight fitting clothing a few hours beforehand. This will help eliminate any bra, jean or underwear indentations in your skin. Plus, it’s an excuse to go bra-less.  Need I say more?

  • Do make sure to eat a light meal beforehand. You will need your energy for posing and simply being fabulous! 

  • Do consider having your hair and makeup done at the studio professionally, not only does it make you feel pampered and beautiful, you won’t have to get ready at all before your shoot! (I always wear sweatpants and a t-shirt. It is so nice showing up with a fresh face and hair and leaving looking like a supermodel.)

  • Do get plenty of rest the night before and come hydrated! Your skin will thank you.

  • Do bring a pair of black panties and a black bra with you. Also, if you don’t plan on picking an outfit from the studio make sure you bring your outfit selection from home. 

  • Do remember to have fun, relax and embrace this experience. It is so much fun and so empowering. 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at the studio.
