I grew up with mom where image was very important therefore food was controlled. At that time I thought I had to be a certain size to be accepted and successful and that curvilacious woman had much less.
When I started to do boudoir, I realized that every woman is different, has cellulite and personality, confidence is what makes a woman. Some woman are curvy due to medication others it’s just their system.
Today I can run from a size 6 to 10 and I feel the same way.
Boudoir is very gratifying as I get to capture women from all walks of life and show them just how beautiful they are inside and out. I get them out of their comfort zone and help them reconnect with their inner goddess.
Marilyn Monroe said “I don’t mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won’t like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it’s based on femininity.”
That is why I love boudoir sessions. It’s like femininity which boils down to its essence, and women can’t help being glamorous in their own special way.
Sometimes I think we assume that kind of glamour is reserved for models and movie stars, but they do not have the corner on beauty. Boudoir shoots are for every woman.
