SHOWER BOUDOIR SESSIONS
Back in April, I traveled to D.C to meet up with the fabulous and forever amazing lady, Andrea aka “Plus Size Pioneer” from IG! We met back in NYC a few years ago during a workshop I had attended while taking a class with the ever so poplar Terri Hoffard (Photographer in Canada). Andrea was the plus-size model for that particular class, and though we didn’t get the opportunity to speak during the class, we later connected on IG after she seems some of the images I had submitted to Terri to showcase within the workshop groups. When later wrote me saying that the images were of her favorites and since that day we kept in touch talking throughout the year.
Earlier this year Andrea reached out letting me know she was going to be in D.C for a few days and wanted to work together. Of course I said yes! My amazing husband stayed home with the baby while I drove out to D.C for the day to hang out and taking some super rad images.
When I arrived, we chatted for an hour or so before we jumped into taking pictures. Since It was an overcast day the lighting in the basement Airbnb was kind of iffy for photos, but thankfully mother nature was on our side, and soon we had gorgeous light filling the room. Throughout, I watched this confident women strunt her stuff! I always think it’s so magical being able to watch women come to life in their own bodies as they pose and walk around in lingerie. I know it may seem silly, but I think everyone women should have a few pieces of lingerie to just walk around in! If you haven’t worn any, then its time you pull that shit out and get to wearing it!!
We saved the shower sessions for last! If you haven’t already figured out I don’t get the opportunity to do many of them, but when I do I LOVE THEM! I love showing women how beautiful they are naked, dresses, semi dressed, etc. If anything I want women to love they body they are in. This is a TOUGH thing to peace when I know we all go through funks in our lives were we just don’t like the way we look, some more than others. But if you ever get the chance to do a boudoir session and a shower session, DO IT!!!! You will not regret it!
I mostly shoot within my studio, however, I always up for a challenge to experiment outside of the studio. We have gotten to takes session in many new places in the last few years. I hope to keep up this exciting adventure for 2020!!!
