The fabulous Sarah of Giggar Makeup Artistry and I have been in full swing with boudoir photo shoots and it has been simply AMAZING. It's funny, when I first started my photography business, I didn't even really know what a boudoir photo shoot was... Ok, I had NO idea what it was. That was until one day when I was approached by an incredible women who asked if I did boudoir photography. We met at Barnes & Noble and we connected instantly. She told me about her life, her story, and then she told me her why
... WHY she wanted to do this session. Well, plain and simple, it was on her bucket list. Yup. She was checking things off her list and doing a boudoir shoot was one of the things listed. She was engaged and thought it would be the perfect time to provide gorgeous timeless photos to her fiancé. But mostly, they were for her... Years from her shoot, she could look at the photos and remind herself of how truly beautiful she is inside and out. And she could say she did it. She was vulnerable and initially slightly nervous, but she confidently rocked her shoot.
Her WHY hooked me. I loved the reasons she wanted to do this shoot and we had so much fun during her boudoir session. There were a lot of laughs and Top Model references. But in the end, there were insanely gorgeous photos of her, a memory, and an item checked off her bucket list. You can only imagine how incredibly honored I was when she then asked me to capture the biggest day of her life, her wedding. I will be forever grateful to her for asking me to do a boudoir photo shoot with her.
Wanted to share a few from a recent boudoir shoot! Can't wait until she surprises her hubby with these! : )
