Let’s talk boudoir.
I hate the concept honestly. It’s antiquated to me, the idea to take risky photos for someone else as a gift. “Here is my sexy body in a book to give to someone else.” They feel pressure to lose weight, wear lots of make up and complicated outfits with heels no one can walk in, to feel sexy. The girls feel awkward, self conscious because they aren’t being themselves. I would like to smash this idea.
One. Let’s pat you on the back for the sexy beast you already are. Not because someone else is looking at you, but because you are raw powerful feminine energy manifested into a body-go ahead and roar.
Two. Take the photos for YOU. Take the photos because you want physical proof that your body has done amazing things, like birth life, care for others or kick ass at a job you love. Take the photos as an exercise of self love, appreciation for yourself, to accept your physical form and embrace your divine femininity. Take the photos as a record to remember your natural beauty, to boost your confidence if you need and look at yourself and say “ I AM”. Take them how you WANT to take them.
Three. I’m watching HEALING take place in some of my sessions of years of betrayal. Tears at the back of my camera and reflection of “ Oh my god, I can’t believe that is me.” Tapping into who you are stripped bare and recognizing that a confident photo of you is so much better than a contrived “sexy” one.
Four. I’m changing the names of my sessions from Boudoir to BARE. In front of my camera you get to be beautifully yourself, without addition.

I think I’m starting to feel what it’s like to step out of my skin and into my soul. .
Well it’s official. I made a new home base back in Kansas City. Signed a lease last week on the Plaza. Life changes fast but I feel good about where I’ve landed. Work continues to bring me to New York and beyond so I’ll see everyone whenever I land in your city 🤗 Excited about spending the holidays with my family and friends and having cheap rent again 😂

I don’t know if @maebfilms knows that I’m going to blow this up and put her on my wall 😍
