Recently I had the opportunity to work with a new client. A true pleasure to work with. For this session, we discussed ideas and different locations that you wouldn't normally see for a boudoir session. After tossing around ideas we finally decided on the location in the images.
I will say this. It was a hot day for the session. But we did out best to remain in the shade for the majority of it. But, I must confess that this worked out very well for the final images. The light coming thru the trees hitting her body and face worked and looked perfect if not amazing!
Let's face it, light being cast to certain pats of the body and face always look amazing and creates a more dramatic look for the images. I showed the her the images as we went along and she was extremely happy with every one we did.
You may notice that in some of the images you see her stretch marks from child birth. We talked at length about this and decided to leave them in as this a woman who is happy with her body and who she is. Not trying to hide the fact that marks are a part of life that comes with having children. She is strong and confident with who she is!
I hope the women (that is you) viewing this write up and images. This to be a post about shirking societies rules of what you have to look like and have perfect skin or body all the time. This is showing you can be you and still be perfect. Not some distant version of what a magazine or social media post tells you what you have to be and look.
