Vegas Boudoir Sunset Shoot

A couple weeks ago I attended a photography conference in Vegas where I spend hours in a classroom learning…..ok, not really! :p I pretty much spent time catching up with all my boudoir friends, shooting each other, getting into trouble and maybe here and there, listening to some speakers 🙂 One thing we did was get a awesome hotel room and shoot each other and what a blast we had!! We started shooting this session right as the sun was hitting the mountains and it was gorgeous, especially with the beautiful gold and sparkly top that was just catching all that light. Thank you again Myla for allowing me to share your beautiful images 🙂

My own boudoir shoot!

The last time I did a boudoir session was in 2012….yes, you read that right. I was getting married, and like most of my brides, wanted a gift for my future husband. After the wedding we had our honeymoon phase but before I knew it, I was pregnant with our first son, Miles. All moms can relate to the no sleep, hair in a bun, forgetting to do things for yourself. I needed a boudoir session more than anything after he was born. I wanted to feel sexy again, confident, see myself how my husband sees me. That never happened because when Miles was 6 months old, I found out I was pregnant again and all plans for any type of boudoir session was not in the plans…for a long time!

When I started planning on my trip to WPPI (a photography convention) in Vegas in March, I KNEW I had to do a boudoir session. I didn’t care if it was 20 minutes or 2 hours, I NEEDED something. I reached out to Jennifer Williams and told her i wanted to book a session. Jen and I have known each other for almost 10 years and started our boudoir careers around the same time. If there is anyone I trust for this job, it’s her, and I needed that because I knew I had a wall up and I knew she would break it down. The shoot for me was amazing because I could feel my guard falling as we went on and I know when that happens you create something so special. I left feeling amazing and continue to feel amazing and when I saw the images, I cried. I freaking bawled my eyes out because I was so happy I looked as sexy as I felt 😉

I’m not a size 8 and I have stretch marks and I have things I want to work on but right now, this is me. I’m so proud of myself for doing this, even if it was far too long. I told myself that in 2016 one of my goals was to practice what I preach to my clients. My goal is to do a new shoot every year so I can see my growth as a person and put myself in my clients shoes. Most importantly though, I know I have to continue to remember to do things for myself because how I felt during, after and once I saw the images is a feeling that is unexplainable! It’s something we should all experience over and over again!

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
As a mom to five, there is not a lot of time to pamper myself. My favorite part was being pampered….hair, makeup, dressing…..it was so nice to be pampered!

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF?
Prior to my session, I could look at my body and tell you everything that was wrong with it. After my session, I can tell you I have some pretty rocking features, lol and pictures to prove it!

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION?
My husband, like many men, likes porn! I’m so vanilla….lol, I don’t do lingerie, watch porn, or anything “crazy.” Lol, so I wanted to give him something racy to look at! I wanted to give him me, all over again! I bought some sexy lingerie, and bam! Now he has something to look at that I approve of! Lol….I gave him my album as an anniversary gift! He LOVED it!

akronboudoirstudioI’m still getting caught up on the blogging from our Christmas sessions and maybe one day we’ll be caught up 😉 Next up is the beautiful Mrs. M. While I always encourage clients to book with plenty of turnaround time she booked with about a weeks notice. I also kind of love this because I feel like you have less time to be nervous and stress about things that just do not matter. Well, she came in and just rocked her boudoir shoot. Her hair and skin color were like a dream and of course, Ramona did another killer job on the hair and makeup end. Thanks for coming in and trusting us with your boudoir shoot!! xox

“She totally owns herself! Very much the master of her own life. Great example of how being confident is super sexy!”
“Gorgeous, tasteful shot!! She definitely owned this !!!”

Sultry”

“Wow!”

not really one word for most but how can you keep it to one word?! 😉
