This is our last post from my trip to Vegas a few weeks ago where I got to photograph some of my favourite photographers! Leah owns Cleveland Boudoir in Ohio and is a great friend of mine who I’ve known for years and I’m thrilled I got to work with her finally!

Here’s what Leah had to say about her sessions: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. Jen is someone that puts you as ease right away and gives the feeling like you have known her for years. She guides you though a session with so much ease, paying attention to every detail along the way. 

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 smaller size 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 took way too long. This is something that every woman should experience at least once in their lives, if not more. You are in amazing hands working with Jennifer and it’s something that will absolutely change how you see yourself.”

Why not think outside of the box for your upcoming boudoir session? For Miss J’s bridal session we added florals from The Flower Factory to really complete the airy, romantic and sensual look. We’re LOVING how it all came together and we’re super excited to shoot more clients who have an exciting vision like this!

If you’ve got an idea, run it by us and we’ll let you know how to make it happen for your shoot!

Miss N came to visit us about a month ago to create a memorable gift for herself! She felt like she needed a confidence boost at this time in her life and she came to the right place!

Here’s what Miss N had to say about her experience with us: “You came highly recommended my friends who had previously had you as their photographer. I needed a confidence boost and felt that this would help me with my self esteem although when the day came I was extremely nervous and the only thing going through my head was “omg,omg omg.. it’s happening!” LOL. Now that I’ve had my shoot I had such an amazing time and without hesitation, I would tell someone considering a boudoir shoot to just make the jump. They’ll be glad they did it! As someone who has never been 100% satisfied with hair and makeup done by another person other than myself, I was thrilled with my hair and makeup. Kelly asked for my preferences, and she was very easy to talk to. The outcome was exactly what I wanted, glamorous but not over the top! I was 100% happy with the entire experience, from beginning to end!”

I had the pleasure of shooting the gorgeous Miss M for the second time while I was in Vegas a few weeks ago. She’s not only an amazing photographer but also a great friend of mine! Her studio, Cheeky Boudoir is located in Saratoga, NY.
