Boudoir: A Boost 0f Self Confidence


I don't typically get to share any of the beautiful boudoir babes I get to work with, but a few weeks ago I held a model call so I could test out a new studio in Cincinnati and I am in LOVE with these results. LeighAnn absolutely rocked her session & I'm so excited that I finally have a few updated boudoir shots to share with the world!

Locust + Vine is an all white studio space located in Cincinnati and, although it is beautiful, working somewhere this bright was almost out of my comfort zone. I tend to have a darker & moodier style with a love for high contrast and vibrant colors, so somewhere so bright & white made me a little bit nervous. Would my style still show up in my photos? Would I have enough to work with? To my surprise, this studio was phenomenal and I am so in love with all of these photos.

Because this is my full time job, I don't typically offer discounted sessions or do sessions for "fun," but after taking some time off for my own wedding, I wanted to ease back into my work life with something creative. LeighAnn agreed to model not only for these photos, but also for a complete behind the scenes educational video for my YouTube channel! I LOVE having the ability to share my knowledge with other photographers & hopefully inspire other women to break out of their comfort zone & book their own boudoir session with someone they trust (and no! That someone doesn't have to be me!)

Boudoir is such a boost of self confidence & I wish more women knew that. I scheduled my own boudoir session before my wedding & absolutely LOVED it! However, I'm a huge believer in the fact that you shouldn't just take boudoir photos as gifts to other people, but instead you should get these photos taken as a gift for yourself. You'll only be at this place in life once. Celebrate your body since it does so much for you. You deserve it.

The behind the scenes video from this session won't be up on my YouTube channel until the end of March/early April, but I just couldn't help myself from sharing just a few photos of this gorgeous girl. If you're interested in booking a session, don't wait! My calendar is already filling up into the summer & once this year's wedding season hits me I won't have the time for as many boudoir sessions!
