Hi! I have seen this image floating around the Internet (pinterest really- good thing I don't watch that much TV, it balances out) and I realized that I need to do a couple of things. One update my gallery with all my new work, and two start telling people " What the hell are you waiting for?" to do your boudoir shoot that is.
I've met amazing women in my line of work and what struck out about a recent appointment was: "I don't look like the models in the magazines and finally I have come to terms with it- and here I am!"
I drank to that.
Comes a time where you accept what you look like and you become comfortable in your own skin. Whenever it hits you - come get your photos done!
Ange, posted some of her shots in her tumblr- loved it! Of course the skimpy ones where for her hubby. http://angespange.tumblr.com/tagged/boudoir I love her sense of humour, I've been following her antics since.
Eliza also shares her experience here http://thevanityevents.com/2012/04/30/elizas-photoshoot-marlenjames/
and I am happy that the boudoir is spreading!
Here is what a client said:
and when she got themThank you for Saturday - it was a lot of fun. I left the shoot feeling very good about myself and very sexy. Looking very forward to seeing the results.
Holy crap!!! You are a miracle worker! These are awesome.
For those of you who might think- it's all photoshop! No it's not. It's lighting (bright in photography does not equal as harsh), poses and the secret x factor where you are actually comfortable rolling around in you underwear. I think is my super power.
And this image- I stole from The Lingerie Addict - she encourages everybody to feel beautiful in lingerie- even has great tips in her blog. I specially enjoyed her rant about "when people complain about the images she post" http://thelingerieaddict.com/2012/08/real-talk-and-a-rant.html
Like me! I am skinny and small boned but have my flabby areas that some days make me look pregnant. suuuuucks. If I gain weight it goes directly to my lack of waist - wish I could direct it to the boobs, or some down the skinny legs but nooooo, it get's stuck with the rest of the tacos.
Anyway- all this was to let you know that - no matter your size, boudoir is a great experience to have.
