There is something extremely empowering when all the fluff, all the props, and all the expectations are stripped away and in the end YOU ARE STILL BEAUTIFUL!
Traditionally boudoir photography involved glammed up hair, fake eyelashes, a tufted bed, and killer heels and once upon a time, I thought in order to have a successful boudoir shoot I had to provide all those things for my client. What I was forgetting was the whole point of the photoshoot itself, to feel beautiful. I help women feel empowered at their most minimal selves, stripped of any expectations of what our culture defines as beautiful.
We ventured to nature to be soothed and healed of all the beauty standards society put on us. Miss H walked away feeling calm and confident after this Mckinney Falls outdoor boudoir photography shoot. Mckinney Falls landscape has vast areas of limestone, shaped by the falls overtime. It is simple, it is bare, it is raw. Just like her.
The goal of the photoshoot:
We both entered into this shoot with one idea in mind, her. It was ALL ABOUT HER. It wasn't about the sex hair, push-up bras, or fake eyelashes that traditional boudoir offers. It was to show her at her core, a strong sexy woman in a messy top knot. We photographed the details of her face, her collarbone, and simple but sensual poses.
This who women really are:
Ladies, this is who we are! We are women that put their hair in messy buns, roll up our sleeves, and do the work! We put so many expectations on ourselves on what beauty and sexy looks like. I am here to tell you it is all unnecessary. Fun? Yes! I am not telling you to NEVER wear heels, glam your hair, or put fake eyelashes are. I am here to tell you that you don’t NEED all those things to be gorgeous. The best way to find yourself is to be surrounded by nature. Nature isn’t worried about the latest trends or the size of your waist. Wash your spirit clean of what is expected of you.
I help women find their calm and confidence through nature and boudoir and the raw minimal landscape of McKinney Falls State Park was the perfect location to show Miss H how beautiful she was without all the fuss.
