Today I watch a video about a girl who tells her classmates that they are beautiful and their reaction to it was priceless! To many times we walk around feeling less than beautiful. In the studio I hear women say things about themselves in a negative way. Like “I hate my big butt”, “my chest is flat” or “my skin is too pale.” These are NOT bad things! These are beautiful things! You have a nice voluminous butt. Your ass looks awesome in a dress! You have the perfect chest for your frame. And it looks awesome in high fashion clothes! You have magical porcelain skin! Tanning is overrated! You are beautiful! When a woman comes into my studio and expresses me that she is “curvy” I say, good because curvy is beautiful and I get to document that beauty, but most importantly I get to tell her and hopefully make her see that she is more than what she feels. She is a natural woman, and that is NOT a bad thing.

When clients are stumped on what to bring into the studio I always suggest two outfits. The first is what I call a comfy sexy. It’s an outfit that is more covered up, but a sexier version of what you would wear lounging around the house. The second is what I refer to as the classic outfit. Simple black, lacy, garter, stockings and heels. This idea of sexy never goes out of style. I think these sides of yourself makes up a good variety for your boudoir shoot because you get a bit of sweet and spicy.

Of course, you should always tailor your outfits to be a bit more personal to your story. For instance, when your husband is a football fan you bring in sexy football gear. T-shirt and a hat, cute. Leopard heels and some boyshorts, hot! I’m sure any sports fanatic husband would be pleased too. And, of course, she knocked it out of the park with her classic outfit too. Sizzle! Here are a few of my favorites from this sweet and spicy boudoir session.

I love shooting couples boudoir in studio and I’m lucky enough to say that at least one couple that is brave enough to come in let me capture their passion. I’m so happy that this couple allowed me to share a few of their photos and the small amount the did let me share really show off two different sides of them. There is a very sexy side to these images, but also one with a bit of laughter. All relationships need a bit of both! Sugar, spice and most of all fun! Couples boudoir is perfect for an anniversary gift and just a great reminder to keep it interested in the bedroom.

Today I was at the gym and about an hour in a half into my workout when I couldn’t stop thinking about sitting in front of my tv drinking some coffee in yoga pants, I saw this message written on the personal training board. It said, “Do it NOW! Sometimes “later” becomes never.” I thought to myself how common this must occur in everyone’s life. We often put our deepest desires and our most passionate dreams on hold because of time, fear, money….whatever the reason, we often miss out on the most fulfilling parts of living!

Don’t let your bucket list become a never. Do things! Travel, live your dreams, be wild and sexy, of course!

When D messaged me she made it a point to tell me she is a size 16. And I said to her, “even better!” D is the type of woman that I get in the studio all the time, and she is absolutely the type of woman I love to shoot. D said to me during her shoot how she would love to stop avoiding mirrors and how she wished for this shoot to bring more desire back in her life. Women choose to come into the studio for all types of reasons, but I can’t think of a better reason than this. All women are beautiful. I love being able to show women a different side of themselves because sexy is definitely not a size, but a feeling!
