I am so thrilled to get to share a series of boudoir posts with you. I am always shooting boudoir but it is very rare that I get to share it with the world. If you keep up with us on Facebook or Twitter then you might have seen that I went to Canada a few weeks ago to attend a boudoir workshop. I felt like I as in the season of my boudoir shooting that I was ready to take things to the next level. We have some exciting opportunities coming up this year with boudoir so I wanted to make sure I was refreshed and ready to step it up. I wanted to learn from another photographer who had successfully moved in the direction business-wise that I wanted to head in. I had been following the stunning, edgy work of Last Forty Percent Photography Boudoir for awhile and when I saw they were offering a workshop, I knew I had to go. There was one full day of “classroom” learning where Brianna and Ewan shared everything about their business model, from top to bottom. The second day was filled with shooting three different sessions. We got to hear and see Ewan in action in their very own studio space. Ewan and Brianna graciously shared of themselves and their business and I am so thankful to have learned so much from this workshop. I was thrilled to come home with new tools to integrate into my style of boudoir photography.
Boudoir is so important to me. I have a huge heart for empowering women and helping them know that they are each uniquely beautiful. I have had my own struggles in this journey of self acceptance so I know how it feels to be vulnerable and unsure of how you look and are perceived by the world. I want every woman to know that she is gorgeous and worth celebrating just the way she is. The models we photographed at the workshop have allowed the attendees to share our images. Kasi was the first model we worked with that day and she was so wonderful to work with. Thank you for allowing us to photograph you, Kasi!
I have two more shoots to share from the workshop so check back for more boudoir goodness!
