It's okay to love yourself

I SO often hear, "I am interested, but...(enter excuses here)”

“I’ll be ready once I… lose 20 lbs/ get my boobs done/gain 10 lbs/ workout for a few months/ grow my hair out/ get a tan”

And those are just some of the excuses I have heard over the past 4 years of shooting Boudoir photography in Columbus.

Fearlessly Fishnet | Columbus Boudoir Photography Studio

was so beyond excited for this session with Ashley from the very first time we talked! I knew in a second that this was going to be the BEST outfit!! I actually chose what she is wearing from the studio wardrobe, so if you like it that much, you can duplicate this look.

Velvet Desires | Sexy Photo Shoot Columbus

This is just one of the outfits I have in the boudoir studio wardrobe that clients can borrow for their sexy sessions. I got this purple little velvet number when Fredericks of Hollywood was having a big sale on lingerie and I love the way it fit her. It made for great booty pictures, nice open cleavage, and it has a casual feeling. Also who doesn't love when your whole photo shoot outfit is one piece? One and done.

Jocelyn's white sheet session | Boudoir Photo Studio

For those of you who aren't familiar, white sheets or "sheet sessions" are a series of poses where we use a sheet to strategically cover the body parts you don't want the camera to see. For some women, they want to be wearing their panties, but give the viewer the illusion of nudity, and cover both top and bottom with the sheet. Some are okay with being topless, but want to cover their bottom, some are okay with full nudity and we just playfully use the sheet to tease the viewer. It can be as risque or as modest as you like.

Sarah's Session Recap | Boudoir Photography Columbus Ohio

This session was seriously one of my absolute favorites. Sarah's personality is so spunky and she's so pretty too! At first she was a little nervous, but she warmed up pretty quickly. Infact... she told me that by the end of the shoot she had wished she'd worn less. Whaaat? I actually hear that a lot, there's always time to have another session and do the nudes ;)

"Right now, you are enough" | Client Interview: Miss L

“Right now, you are enough, not 5 pounds from now, not a few months after, not a diet from this time, right now, you are beautiful, you are hot, and this is your time! This is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself. You can do this for a man or women, you can do this for a gift or a goodbye present, but you MUST also do it for you. Remind yourself how good YOU look. YOU look damn good, show it off, remind yourself and if comfortable, share it with others. Share with them how damn good YOU look!“ -Miss L
