Every time I photograph a Luxe session, I fall more and more in love with the art of boudoir & glamour photography! These stunning sessions took place at the Embassy Suites in Fayetteville NC and all of these women are just amazing, inside and out! Contrary to what we see in the magazines, those “sexy faces” are NOT the best faces for your glamour portraits. I promise. Real, genuine smiles win every single time! So I try my best to tell jokes and make the whole situation just as relaxed and fun as possible. Because, really…the only way to get a genuine smile is fun. So I ask about your life, your family, your hobbies. Tell you about mine. And by the end of the session, most of the time I feel like I’ve got a new friend! Which is good, because anyone who’s seeing you in your skimpiest lingerie should probably be your friend, haha.
There’s nothing I love more than making a difference in a woman’s life, too. This testimonial seriously had me in tears when I read it! —
“I want you to know that what you do is amazing and so important. You make a difference and you made a difference for me today. I sent the picture you sent me to my best friend and we were talking about them and this is what I told her: ‘It’s hard to look at myself in the mirror every day still seeing myself 30 pounds heavier and looking like a wrinkled pizza faced woman thinking no wonder my husband isn’t here. But I know it’s not the truth and these pictures are my evidence. I have lost those 30 pounds and I am beautiful, even f my husband isn’t here. And it’s his loss.’”
So these sessions aren’t only for that special man in your life. They’re also for YOU, which is why I hire a professional hair and makeup artist to help me beautify you before our session. I want you to FEEL as beautiful as you truly are. And that’s why I try to do with these photos. We find the most flattering poses for your body, your face shape, the things you’re most insecure about. Tell me these things so I can work with you and bring out the absolute best in every single photo.
Seriously. I love this job. And to all of these women – you’re GORGEOUS. & don’t ever let anyone make you feel otherwise! <3
