Throw Back Boudoir | Northern NY Boudoir Photographer

Updated: Jan 9

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!

Embarking on this journey, I faced my fair share of fears. Why? Because I knew deep down that this was my calling, and I was determined to make 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!

The self-doubt crept in – Was I experienced enough? What if I made my model feel bad about her self image? Would I have good images to kickstart my business? Despite the uncertainties, I pressed on.

My first model, an absolute gem, made the experience unforgettable. As I sat down to review the images, I reached the last one and audibly gasped. That particular shot signaled a turning point. I had nailed the lighting, exposure, posing, and angle – it was a game-changer. It became evident that I had the potential to be a boudoir photographer.

Excitement bubbled up, and I couldn't wait for her return to reveal the images. Her reaction was priceless – she loved every single one. Reflecting on this photo now, I can spot areas for improvement (hello, badly photoshopped floor!), but overall, I'm still immensely proud. This is the photo that changed the trajectory of my career.
