I've worked in a locally-owned lingerie and bra-fitting boutique for years. Meeting and listening to all different types of women has been one of my favorite parts of the job. Many different things are said behind those curtained dressing rooms; tears, jumps-for-joy, half-naked hugs, champagne-induced laughter, and real conversations. It's amazing how many people open up and are willing to tell you about their lives when they are half-dressed. Most women have something about their body that they don't like, and some walk with an extra strut in their step because they know their bra matches their panty (which matches their outfit). Importantly, we talk about our bodies and what's healthy for us.
So, when I started out doing boudoir photos, my primary reason was so women would know they are beautiful, sexy, and deserve to show it off. Show off who you are now, the accomplishment of having a baby, of not having a baby, the exercise and healthy work you've done, the work you haven't done, for you.
I am beyond excited to share these photos. Boudoir is easily becoming my favorite thing to shoot. Jess is amazing, and totally sells those Calvin Kleins.
