A common misconception about boudoir photography is that it's a 'once in a lifetime' experience. For some people that may be true.
However, many of my clients return over and over again to document their journey.
We've celebrated big milestones like weddings and divorces. Self-love singledom. Becoming a mom. I've captured images of women through their successes, grief, overcoming trauma, and reinvention. I've even had the honour of documenting part of one special person's transition into her true self.
Without a doubt, being trusted with women's stories has been the honor of a lifetime.
Miss A and I first met in 2013, when she booked her first shoot as a special 1st anniversary gift for her husband. Her second time in front of my camera was a white sheets session. For shoot #3, she brought her hubby along for a steamy couples boudoir shoot. Shoot #4 was all about documenting her pregnancy with a maternity boudoir session. We got so many amazing shots during shoot #5 that I had to break it up into 2 blog posts: part 1 and part 2 .
2020-2021 was a rough time for many many people, myself included. This woman experienced a set of truly incomparable obstacles, and yet I've seen her pick herself up and take her power back. Undeniably inspiring.
When she let me know that she was ready for shoot #6, I was like, hell. yes.
Miss A wanted to document the journey she's been on with a raw and real photo shoot similar to this one. I knew immediately that this project was the perfect opportunity to create edgy black and white boudoir photography.
I'm absolutely thrilled with what we created, and grateful to be able to share these images with you.
