Throw Back Boudoir | Northern NY Boudoir Photographer

Updated: Sep 26, 2019


I want to take a minute to revisit a photo I took WAY back in 2016 when I first started my boudoir photography journey. When I started this wonderful journey, I was shooting with my friends. I learned that a boudoir session boosts confidence and I was instantly hooked!

I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life! I was also really scared. So many reasons why I shouldn't do it but instead I pushed forward and made it happen! I put my own money down to pay for my model to be pampered with a local Hair and Makeup Artist. I gave out my home address which went against everything my Momma taught me growing up! I was worried that I would appear to be a total joke because I was so inexperienced. I wasn't even sure if I was good enough to do this! What if I made her feel bad about herself? What if I made her feel uncomfortable? What if I didn't have any good pictures to use to market this business that I loved so much already? There was a lot of the line but still I pushed forward.

My first model was so great and I could not have asked for a more perfect partner to start the boudoir side of my business with! After she left, I sat down to look at the images I took and when I got to the end...I gasped out loud. When I saw this shot I knew that I had what it took to become a boudoir photographer. I nailed the lighting, exposure, posing, angle...it was easily the best image I had taken all day! (or ever!)

I was so excited and I could not wait to have her back to show her the images, she absolutely loved them all! As I look back on this photo, I see somethings that could be improved upon {I'm talking to you, badly photoshopped floor!} but overall I'm still really proud of this photo! This is the photo that changed the trajectory of my career.
