I would like to introduce you the first RAW boudoir session. The new Boudoir sessions that Ella Photography offers. It’s all about the client. Your home, your own makeup, your own hair, your own clothes. It’s about showing who you REALLY are… right now. It’s a beautiful session (in my opinion). The “This is me” session. I’ve explained why the change in my recent blog post : I cried at my boudoir session.
This is D. She’s been a friend of mine for a while (I trained her at McDonalds back in 2001) I shot her first boudoir session, her engagement and her wedding. She’s been on the blog a few times. I went over to her home a few weeks back and we shot her new boudoir session in her own bedroom.
At the same time, I asked her a few questions for you to read. Enjoy her session. I love the darkness in these. Don’t see anything? Up the brightness on your screen 😉
What is “beauty” to you?
Beauty is strength. Being confident and kind to others.What was the goal in getting a boudoir session done?
To remind myself that I am beautiful. I don’t need to lose an extra 15 pounds to feel pretty. I am beautiful and I don’t need to fit into a size 2 in order to feel good about myself. So what I gained a couple pounds? Women stand in front of the mirror and are the worst critique of themselves…. we need to appreciate what we have.
Why do you think it’s important for women to feel beautiful?
Because how you feel is more important than the way you look. A confident woman who knows how beautiful she is inside and out will exude such radiance. This positive energy is shared with everyone around.
How did u enjoy getting photos done at ur place? Ur own clothes/makeup/hair?
I loved it. I felt more comfortable, I wasn’t half naked in a hotel room. I did not have to bring my wardrobe to another location … removed the worry of ” what do i wear?”… I worry about that enough. … I picked out some outfits and set them aside and ella photography helped me select what was to going to look best on camera.
As a woman, do you feel “ugly” sometimes? Why do you think that is?
My husband tells me he loves me everyday…no matter how I look. Sometimes I don’t feel beautiful on the outside. Every morning you rush to work… put on a hat…. so much for doing your hair… drink your coffee from a to-go cup… eat a bagel or piece of fruit on the go. The first time u see yourself In a mirror at work you cringe. We all have those moments. Take some time for yourself. This boudoir session was for me. To make me feel confident in my body as it is inside and out… Without change.
How did u feel after the session / after u got ur photos back?
I have used ella photography before and I’m always shocked at how good I look in her pics. I always think that I am the most un-photogenic person, ever. But ella photography always makes me look great. I don’t know how she does it. So when I got the pics back I wasn’t surprised. … she is great at what she does. These pictures remind me how beautiful I am. Thanks Isa
