I have been a professional photographer for over 10 years and I have to say that this session is one of my all time favorites, including newborn, maternity, children and family sessions! I just love this client! She scheduled her session together with her daughter and one of her daughter’s friends. They all came together and spent the day at the studio getting pampered and being sexy! To say that she was nervous is a tremendous understatement! I think she was shaking when she came in. I could tell that she really wanted to do the session, she just wasn’t sure if she was too old! Nonsense!
It is always a festive atmosphere when friends schedule sessions on the same day and we had such a great time. I put her in the very talented hands of Make-up Artist Denise Hutter. This client was the last of the three to be photographed that day and I think her nerves had calmed down by the time I started shooting. She was so much fun to photograph and when I showed her an image from the back of my camera, she couldn’t believe the gorgeous woman in the picture was her! She just has an amazing sparkle in her beautiful eyes that draws you in.
The photo session was awesome, but I think the ordering appointment was even more fun! She brought her husband of over 40 years with her to the appointment. When the slideshow started playing, I don’t think she could believe that it was her up on the screen. She got all misty-eyed and gave me the biggest hug! It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional career. I loved it when her husband said “we are clearly spending more money than we planned if it makes you this happy!”
Women are beautiful at any age or size. We are often so hard on ourselves. I truly think that a boudoir session is something all women should experience at least once. The opportunity to take a day for yourself and get all pampered and gorgeous is so much fun, but it is also empowering and confidence building.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to photograph you and for the privilege of allowing me to share your beautiful images!
