NYC Boudoir Photographer | From the Other Side of the Lens
The world of photography is a fascinating one. There are so many different types of people that make up the photography industry. I love meeting them, all of them. The more people I meet the better. As artists we help each other grow. We inspire each other, pick each other up when we are ready to quit…and sometimes even photograph each other!
Last year I decided I really wanted to have my own boudoir photos taken, to experience what it was like in front of the lens. I reached out to a photographer I had heard of in Southern NJ named Dawn. Dawn is the force behind Glamour Bitch Photography. When I first reached out – as you can imagine, she was a little worried that maybe my intentions weren’t genuine. I reassured her that I really just wanted to have a fun time and be a client for change. I wanted a real boudoir experience. So she agreed.
Well – we hit it off! We instantly became friends. She had candy waiting for me when I got there (does it get better than that?)! We laughed hysterically at all the similarities between us. Not only did we have a great time at the shoot, but Dawn decided to also come to ME for a shoot. Woo Hoo!!
Thank you for the amazing experience, and the beautiful photos Dawn! You are a beautiful person inside and out. I am so glad we are friends and I hope our friendship and businesses continue to grow – and that we will always be there to support each other through all the madness!
And now, without further adieu…here are some of my photos! (EEEEK!):
And just for fun – here are some of the photos I took of Dawn! Isn’t she gorgeous?!??!
One side note….
Having my own boudoir session done was so fun, and exciting…and yes..I stressed about my body, and what to wear and the night before I felt like running from the whole idea for about 3 minutes.
I am a woman. I have body issues – I have had 2 children…I have cellulite and scars. I am not perfect.
This experience was not just to have photos taken – but to know what my clients go through and what their feelings are leading up to the shoot.
I now have a MUCH better understanding of it from the clients side. I know sometimes it is hard to step out of the comfort zone. I know because I did it, and I am doing it today again by posting the images!! But I have to tell you – I can’t WAIT to do it again. What an empowering, fun, sexy day!!!! Ladies – trust me, I can now tell you from both sides of the camera how awesome and life changing boudoir can be!!!
Have a Sexy Day!
