Whenever I mention one of my boudoir sessions I always get a few people who tell me how much they would love to do it, but they don't have the nerve. I want to share a little of what my experience shooting boudoir has showed me and prove to you that boudoir is for everyone. I can promise that you will not only love your pictures, but you will also feel pretty awesome afterward.
When a client first walks in they are almost always nervous, heck I would be too. You don't really know what to expect, and even if you did, it is still a little scary taking off your clothes in front of someone you barely know. Something I feel really helps build up those nerves is feel getting your hair and makeup done professionally. It will make you feel hot and confident. Brittany from Cloud 9 salon does a wonderful job.
Every girl has her own special curves so make sure to choose outfits that make you feel beautiful. Don't worry about those 10 pounds you have been trying to loose. It is amazing how the right light and pose can instantly take off those pounds. We all have something about our bodies that we don't like. The idea is to enhance the features we love and to mask those we don't. That can be as simple as a turn of the hips. Don't focus on what you consider to be your flaws. Instead trust that your photographer has your best looks in mind and let me do my magic.
It usually takes about 15 minutes to get past the butterflies and start rocking your session. The following images are from a client a photographed a couple of weeks ago. She was a little nervous at first, but she trusted that I would make her look beautiful and together we made some gorgeous images. She did the session as a birthday gift to her man. This was a little note I got from her afterward...
"Nikita!!! Nikita!! D loved his gift (the photos). Thanks so much for making me look as beautiful as ever. I felt so sexy and that is saying a lot because I never feel that way! You are the best. thanks so much!"
That makes my day! I love that I have a job that has the power to make people feel so good about themselves. :)
E thank you so much for allowing me to share your beautiful images! :)
