This Kawartha Lakes boudoir session was filled with lots of giggles. Sarah was my first boudoir session at the new studio giving me a chance to play with natural light in my newly decorated boho space and I’m so elated with how everything has come together. For those of you who don’t know me on a personal level, I love , love, love a decorating challenge– HGTV and House & Home magazines are a staple in my life. It was really fun to get to design a space that isn’t what I would normally do at home, to set that moody vibe for the boudoir genre I love so much. I wanted a space for women (& couples) to feel comfortable, natural but with a little flare of fun to it (did you see the feathery poof!!). I can’t wait to continue to build (hoard) my stash of fun accessories for this space and it is always fun when clients bring something personal with them as well too.
Sarah rocked the space with her inner Cindy Crawford channeled into our shoot. It’s funny because at the moment when I usually tell my clients “okay we are going to get a little more serious.. a little more sensual” … that’s when the giggles don’t stop! It’s so great though, because to me, a happy women is a sexy woman. Eventually we got past the giggles (because if your giggling chances are I probably am too) to capture some moodier shots which I just knew would make for amazing in black & white. Boudoir is inherently black & white as a genre, as the sensual, intimate, images speak volumes even when striped of colour.
Boudoir fills my heart in so many ways, seeing the confidence and empowerment break free. When I sent Sarah her gallery I quickly got the text “OMG I freaking love them… and so does my husband!” I can’t agree more, I freaking love them too. You go girl, you are on fire.
