Q. What is Boudoir Photography to you?
A. To me, boudoir has always had a connotation of being kind of ‘racy’. I always pictured women with amazing body confidence in small amounts of clothing or beautiful lingerie, but that was just never something that I felt comfortable with for myself. There was also always the perception that these photos needed to be for someone else, I never really felt confident in giving photos like that to my husband. Brittany challenged all of this for me, and re-defined boudoir as photos that quite simply, make you feel beautiful for you, she showed me that everyone deserves to have at least one great photograph that makes them feel simply amazing.
Q. When do you feel most sexy?
A. I have a really hard time answering this question! I think I probably feel my sexiest when I get dressed up for a special event to go to with my husband. With two little girls at home, I often live in yoga pants so I like when I get to feel like a grown up and put on my LBD and do my hair.
Q. Why do you want to be photographed?
A. After having two babies in under two years, I felt like my body was no longer my own. Since my baby, Sadie, was born I have embarked a new journey to focus on my health and fitness. I finally feel happy in my skin again, even more so than at times before I had kids. I remember after having my older daughter thinking that I would never be able to do many things again, like go hiking as a family or fit into a single digit dress size. I was so out of shape that even walking the dog at times made me feel winded. Now, my body finally functions the way that it should, and I am so excited to go hiking with my family this summer, and run my first 5k. I wanted photos to reflect the happiness I feel with my progress so far, and to celebrate all the things my body can do. To show that I am a mom, but I am also someone’s wife, and a woman.
What makes you unique?
A. It’s hard for me to say what truly makes me unique; I am a mom, I am a wife, a daughter, a friend. I try to be strong, be brave, be kind; but I think the first two words that come to mind are ‘loyal’ and ‘dedicated’. I am dedicated to my family first and foremost; I am a stay at home mom to my two little girls and together with my husband, they are my whole heart. Everything I do, I do with them in mind. I am outgoing and I like to surround myself with people, my friends and family are so very important to me. I like to think that I am a loyal friend, I love to laugh with my friends and have a good time, but I will also always strive to be someone they can lean on in a time of need.
How would you describe your style?
A. Usually pretty laid back. I generally live in monochromes, jeans and yoga pants. It’s not very glamorous, but it’s certainly comfortable.
