This post is a little different than most others. As many of you know, I’ve been doing a lot of boudoir photography lately- which means, women and men celebrating themselves through photographs that are tasteful, classy- and partly or mostly nude. I was extremely nervous the first time I did a shoot like this- and my clients are ALWAYS nervous in the beginning. (By the end, trust me, they’re the ones coming up with ideas and suggestions because they’re having so much fun!)
After having done almost a hundred boudoir shoots now, one of the only downsides is this- I have some amazing photographs in my collection now that I can’t share because of the sensitive nature of the photos! Some of the finest, most beautiful work I’ve ever done is with these women (and a few men, but mostly women) who are brave enough to do something like this for themselves, honoring themselves and celebrating exactly who they are in this moment in life. There’s nothing I love more than coming home and looking through the images, and saying, “Wow. She is truly incredible- can’t wait for her to see herself like I did during our session.” It’s so rewarding.
Out of respect for my clients and their privacy, I’ve chosen not to share many of the photos I’ve done. (Also there are few brave enough to share their boudoir pics with all of Halifax- it’s a small community!) However I still felt I should write something about the experiences I’m having, and how impressed and amazed I am with these women and their beauty. You’ll never be more beautiful than you are right now, in this moment. Thank you all for sharing that with me and allowing me to capture you for exactly who you are.
