"Believe that you can do this! Even if you are nervous, take the plunge. I promise you will not regret it! It was such a fun and empowering photo session for me. I love my pictures and they put a huge smile on my face when I see them."
Natural beauty to boudoir bombshell!
From Julie about her experience...
"For fellow curvy ladies out there, I wanted to share my experience doing a boudoir photo shoot with Karen. You do NOT need to be slender to have a rocking boudoir photo shoot. I typically wear L or XL shirts and size 14 or 16 pants. The image that I often refer to when describing my body type is statues of Greek Goddesses. The photos Karen captured of me during our session were smoking hot. Looking at the raw images from our shoot, “Wow!” is the word that kept escaping from my mouth. Even though this was my first boudoir photo shoot, Karen made the process easy. She communicated every step of the way and answered all of my questions. She even helped me select lingerie that was flattering for my body type. During the photo shoot, Karen helped me feel comfortable and confident and guided me in achieving a variety of looks and poses. I took some time to get in the zone, and she went the extra mile to help me get to that point. All in all, the boudoir photo experience was fun, sexy and empowering. No matter your size or body type, rest assured that you are in amazing hands with Karen. She is professional, takes great pride in her work and genuinely cares about her clients."
I get it--intimate portraiture can be extremely intimidating, particularly when you don't know the photographer, aren't used to feeling and looking sexy, or are simply stepping out of your comfort zone. The entire boudoir and empowerment photography experience is designed to help make you feel comfortable in front of my camera and I. Between getting to know each other prior to your session, discussing any of your inspirations and goals for the photoshoot, sending you multiple preparation guides, having a Client Wardrobe for you to select from and professional hair and makeup to glam you up and help you feel amazing, I'm here to walk you through every step of the way. Whether you need some time to warm up or are ready to jump right in, I am here to calm your nerves and guide you in to the most flattering poses and positions, while having a blast and capturing gorgeous art of your beautiful self!
If you ask this SFV boudoir photographer if it looks like Julie was nervous or shy, I say it's a resounding 'no!' from looking at her boudoir photographs! She looks like a queen, comfortable in her sexuality, femininity and power.
