What is Boudoir?

More than lingerie
``The wild woman speaks with her own voice, walks her path fiercely and dances to the rhythm of her own drum.``

Boudoir photography encompasses so much more than getting undressed in front of the camera. 

As women, our entire lives we were told what to say, what to wear and how to behave. These notions, whether they clash with our internal systems our not, force us to create multiple layers of defenses that we hide behind every day. Think of it as a type of protection: from negative feedback, criticism and most importantly – from hurt.

However what these defenses also accomplish is keeping us from fully experiencing our womanhood, from being fully present in our female nature and from letting our inner wild woman out.

Boudoir photography strips not only your clothing but the layers of defense you’ve built up over the years. It allows you to be vulnerable and to see what may be waiting on the other side of that risk.  It lets you love your body more and begin the journey to the deepest form of self-love.

Not to mention the immediate confidence boost and a feeling of innate sexiness and love for your every curve.

In the few blog posts below I talk about everything ranging from vulnerability and growing more confident in your own body to smashing the patriarchy, for those fellow women rebels who think society’s treatment of women needs to change.
