Blacksburg Boudoir Photography

I love photographing boudoir and I am so grateful that Blair gave me the chance to photograph her and let me share the images. Boudoir photography is emotional, you must overcome any insecurities that you might have about yourself and allow yourself to be in a vulnerable state all while trying not to overthink how to “look sexy”. The way it really goes down is I make you listen to inappropriate music from the 90’s while I make an ass out of myself trying to tell you jokes. Boudoir is like a scary water slide, it looks terrifying from the bottom, even more so once you get to the top, and then you do it and feel totally invigorated and like such a badass because it was actually fun, and you overcame your reservations.

I had big dreams and ideas for this year and wanted to put a lot more focus into boudoir photography. Unfortunately, much of this year was filled with personal issues that did not allow me to follow through with some of the really amazing ideas that I had for specially styled boudoir photo sessions… They’re still in the works for 2019, but I’m afraid the afternoons of radiant sunshine are behind us for this year.

I am very excited to say that I have made some headway for planning an indoor boudoir marathon day later this year for those of you hoping to gift a beautiful boudoir album to your partner for Christmas.

Wrightsville Beach Mermaids | Celestial Surf Studio + Spikey Peach Designs

While I was in Wilmington, North Carolina last summer, I did a mermaid inspired photo shoot at Wrightsville Beach with some ceramic artwork from Celestial Surf Studio and Handmade Costume Mermaid Bras by Spikey Peach Designs.  This gorgeous group of women was kind enough to splash around in the ocean with me.

I love this beauty’s edgy look – from her purple rock star hair to her eyelashes that would slash the heart of any man who dares to wrong her.  We started out her boudoir session with a little inspiration straight out of the 90s, channeling Fiona Apple’s layered slips in the “Criminal” music video as we jammed out to 90s alternative music on Google Play.  I didn’t include the racier photos since I do a variety of types of sessions and like to share them all on my blog, but I will paint you this visual image: Guitar Hero guitar, ripped tights, gold sequined underwear, and electrical tape as pasties while we jammed out to Deee Lite’s “Groove is in the Heart” – this gal will henceforth be known to me as “succotash woman”.

She wrote up the sweetest post about her session after she saw her images, I just have to share it with you because it almost made me cry.  

You don't have to be getting married to have a boudoir session, you don't even have to have a significant other.  There is no shame in doing something 100% for you.  I'm all about loving yourself, it is a lifelong journey learning to love the skin you are in and I'd love to help show you the beauty that everyone else sees in you.  Contact me now, let’ get the conversation started!
