A few week’s ago on Instagram I shared a peek into my very first boudoir photoshoot …
I actually won the session from Elizabeth Kathryn, one of my favorite Seattle photographer’s who just launched her boudoir series – Fierce and Femme.
Today I’m sharing my experience with you to hopefully inspire a boudoir shoot in your future! I know it can be intimidating – but trust me…you are beautiful and deserve gorgeous photos for yourself (+ makes for a great gift!). ♥
Of course I’m only sharing the more conservative ones (saving the others for my hubby!)…so you can keep scrolling without hesitation. :)
Elizabeth Kathryn did a fantastic job at making me feel comfortable from the moment I walked into her studio – as I was greeted with a makeup artist, mimosas and Beyonce in the background!
I will admit I was completely nervous…but thankfully Elizabeth Kathryn is one of the most down-to-earth people you will ever meet, she made it easy to forget the insecurities and just go for it!
I’ve wanted to do a boudoir photoshoot for years, but never felt like I looked good enough – I was always waiting for the perfect time. And then I realized…this is the perfect time. I need to appreciate my body – embrace the curves, ignore the flaws, and just be thankful I am healthy, happy and the mother of two beautiful children!
I know many mama’s can relate – we look and feel different after babies – and it’s hard to accept the changes – but, ladies – we need to celebrate these years! Perfection is overrated – let’s honor our tribe and be fierce with confidence. I PROMISE 10, 20, 30 years down the road – you will look back and applaud your gorgeous self.
And if you’re still feeling a bit shy…just showcase your favorite assets – maybe it’s your back, your legs, your shoulders…there is beauty on every inch of you, find what makes you feel comfortable and convey that to the photographer.
At this point, I hope you’re now considering a boudoir photoshoot…and if you’re local, Elizabeth Kathryn is hosting a HUGE special for the month of January! For any session over $450 booked and shot in January, she will take 50% off! Whether it’s boudoir or family portraits, its 50% off! (The only exclusion are weddings and elopements)
