A few days ago I went back to the gym again after recovering from 6 weeks of post pardum. We joined a new gym and I took a step class, but the this particular gym’s step class was very different than the ones I’m use to taking. When I expressed my disappointment to my husband about it he replied, “Well the gym is really what you make of it.”

There it is.

In life, sometimes we let our negative thoughts or expectation cloud what could be a great experience.

In boudoir, women do this to themselves often. “I need to lose that extra xx pounds”, “I’m not skinny enough”, “I hate my (insert body part)”. I hear women beat themselves up all the time about why they shouldn’t have a boudoir session and this is really the reason why they should have one!

This is why I love my session with Kat. She doesn’t let others define her beauty by size. In fact, she loves that she is a plus size woman.

There it is again! Her positive acceptance of herself changes everything!

Boudoir is what you make of it. You are an amazing woman, period.

Beauty is not about a size and we love our plus size boudoir sessions.

We don’t often share many detail shots on our blog. We aren’t sure why as we do take a good variety of them every session and they do become some of our client’s favorite shots as there is just fun in the mystery of them. One of the things we value most about being a boudoir photographer is respecting our client’s privacy. We never share photos without permission from our clients and one of the best options we give is allowing our clients to choose how they will allow them to share them if they do. For instance, this sexy client gave us permission to share some anonymous detail shots. And we jumped at the chance to do so because she has the hottest tannest buffiest bods and of course we love details!

N is a new mom and a bride to be be and I love her simplistic style for her bridal boudoir shoot. We always want to include more than one outfit every shoot to give our clients the best variety possible. I love that N picked outfits that matched with quite a bit of things, but also she kept is classic with the black, which never goes out of style and personal with her wedding veil and shoes. For the best bridal boudoir session it’s best to have a contrast in outfits. This is a perfect mix to keep your photos timeless, but also fun. I also love that she is a new mom and she isn’t afraid to bare it all! That’s awesome because in the studio we hope that all women can love themselves for exactly who they are.

Bridal Boudoir is very popular in our studio and in California we have brides getting married all year long. Many brides do bring in the traditional veil, garter and shoes from their wedding, but I also thing that you can think outside the box when it comes to your bridal boudoir session. For instance, check out this floral bride robe that L brought to her session or even his favorite team jersey. You can make your session very personal to you and the best party when you don’t go completely “bridal” is that the photos tend to stay more timeless! We love all the unique surprises that women bring to the studio. Whatt will you bring to your bridal boudoir session?

Woman come to the studio to shoot boudoir for so many different reasons. The most popular, of course, is it’s meant as a gift for someone else, but I truly believe that it is a gift for yourself! Woman ask me all the time what they would do with the pictures. It’s not really about what you would do with the pictures, but what the images represent to you. It’s a powerful expression of your beauty, confidence and acceptance.

I’ve met her during a different time in her life and now she is on a new journey. She is recently single and after much heartache, she is finding a new path of strength.

I felt this session was symbolic in so many ways. She mentioned to me before her shoot that she wanted to do a theme with feathers and birds. To her it represented her the spreading of her wings and her freedom to fly. As I was editing her photos I thought about the idea of Angels. By definition they are a symbol of goodness and hope. The fact that these wings are black to me represent a sort of fallen Angel.

I love this shoot because it really spoke to me about who she is. She is integrity, power and beauty. She is strong and optimistic and this how I hope all the women who come into my studio feel this type of acceptance.

In her post about this shoot she said, “This photo means more to me than I can explain. I love birds because to me they symbolize freedom, beauty and dedication. When I brought this vision to Tammy she went beyond what I could have imagined to bring that symbolization to life. I’ve been a helpless bird that couldn’t find the strength to open my wings, but I’m ready to fly ❤.  Thank you Tammy for making me feel beautiful!”
