Why i think boudoir sessions are so damn important
Being a woman in a world that has constantly hurled impossible standards of beauty is hard. I know that firsthand. I have so much compassion for women and think boudoir sessions are such a great way to take back the narrative over our bodies. When we decide to love ourselves and celebrate our bodies even for just one hour, we shake up the way we see ourselves, how others see us, and how other women see themselves. This work matters to me because I really believe in radical self compassion and embracing ourselves right where we are. Not just in 20 less lbs, not just when we’re in a relationship, not just when others are validating us. Right here. Right now. We owe it to ourselves to show up and embrace our bodies, full-heartedly.
Whether you’re looking to gift your love with some saucy photos of yourself, celebrating your body, or just having some fun, boudoir sessions are a great way to feel empowered. My approach to boudoir is a bit different from the traditional… I don’t focus on trying to make you look a certain way or putting you in poses that aren’t you. I ease my clients into the process with music and mimosas (or la croix) and just treat you like a friend I’m hanging out with. Honestly, I put no focus on being “sexy” or anything of the sort. I just focus on flattery, seeing you and finding what works, and having a real human conversation. I have goddess cards available to pull; a message from the universe is always a way to get us out of our heads.

Turnaround time is 3 weeks from the session date for your full gallery.
The session typically lends enough time for 2-3 outfits. Wear what makes you feel confident and comfortable! Feel free to start in a kimono or keep a kimono on the whole time, bring a leather jacket or your favorite baggy shirt, wear heels or go barefoot… Honestly don’t overthink it. Just pick something fun!
If you think having your hair & makeup professionally done beforehand will give you a huge confidence boost, do it! I think it helps to spend the day being pampered, but that could mean just a luxurious bubble bath or any other means of self care. Spend the day loving yourself. No negative self talk allowed.
