The biggest reason most women don't do a boudoir session (despite their desire to do so) is simply because they talk themselves out of it.

Boudoir isn't something you do once you gather up the confidence to do it. It's something you do despite your insecurities to feel amazing about yourself as you are.

This summer I had way too many of my clients ask me if I do any of my boudoir sessions outdoors. Every time I was asked the question I said of course I do and I would show them some examples from some past clients. I heard the questions with such frequency this year though, that I felt the need to create this article to hopefully answer this question once and for all: 

YES!!! You can absolutely do your boudoir session outdoors!

Today's boudoir feature is of Juliette Bellefeuille. For those of you that don't know, Juliette is also the girl that I recommend to all of my clients for sugar hair removal and spray tanning before they come in for their sessions with me. Juliette really needed a headshot for her social accounts and her brand new web site which showcases her sugar hair removal and spray tan work. Since she was going to have her hair and makeup done anyway for her headshot, I suggested that she should also do a boudoir session at the same time since I knew she was considering have one done anyway. She agreed and was super happy with the final result!

One of my favorite things about what I do is taking every day women, and guiding them with expert posing and lighting to make them look celebrities in a magazine. Alicia was highly skeptical that she could look like the other women in my portfolio, but I told her to trust me and just go with it. From there I would take care of the rest. Alicia did just that and took the direction I gave her super well! The results speak for themselves and Alicia got some AMAZING images from her boudoir photoshoot.

As a boudoir photographer I feel like I truly have the best job on earth! I get to show women how others see them under the best circumstances even when they might not be able to see it themselves. This is the strongest reason to do a boudoir photoshoot, to change the way you see yourself. This is my passion and what I do for my clients!

One of the biggest objections I hear regularly from women wanting to do a boudoir photoshoot with me is that they would love to do it, but they don't think that they can look like the women in my portfolio.

Summer was nervous about her boudoir photoshoot with me because she didn't want to have a repeat experience of being photographed for her boudoir session without any coaching on how to pose her body. I told her not to worry and that my makeup artist and I would take care of everything and make her look amazing.

Christine was openly nervous about her boudoir photoshoot before we started, however after hair and makeup artist Ducky Rickman gave her a full makeover it was all down hill from there. After her makeover, I coached Christine on how to pose her body and nail her expression with great consistency. Together we photographed one of my favorite boudoir sessions to date.

Every boudoir photoshoot is different and every client is a unique individual. I take great pride in being able to pose all body types to make each woman look her very best. Nichole was brave enough to allow me to document her boudoir experience from start to finish and you should definitely check out her amazing transformation in the video above.

Maternity photography has always been a genre of photography I've been less than enthusiastic about. I think this is because every time I do a search on Pinterest for "maternity photos" I am inundated with cutesy pictures of a pregnant woman in a field holding a chalkboard sign reading "It's a boy!" That's not my style and quite honestly I find those types of images cheesy.
