Life can be such a whirlwind of responsibilities and shifting priorities that sometimes the most important thing gets lost along the way: yourself.

A boudoir photoshoot at EAB can help you rediscover & celebrate your authentic self. These photoshoots produce more than just pictures—they’re an experience, a journey of self-recognition & growth. I will capture the genuine you, and in the process, help you see the strength & beauty you possess.

You’re a masterpiece and your story deserves to be celebrated!

Celebrate Your Body! 

Each of us has a deeply personal experience with our body. As we move through each season of life, our growth, both inwardly & outwardly, becomes a testament to our resilience & strength.

Documenting this transformative journey is not just about capturing memories, it’s a powerful affirmation of evolution, by embracing every facet of who we are. 

Your body is your vessel on this earth, & news flash: IT CHANGES! Changes are normal. Change is inevitable. Rather than running away from reality, a boudoir photoshoot helps you to see yourself from a new angle, appreciating how delicious, photographable, and stunning you are—curves, scars, imperfections and all.

There is nothing like embracing yourself from a new angle. It can be the confidence boost you need, documenting your growth. 

By cherishing & celebrating our body throughout different moments, we not only validate our experiences but also inspire ourselves to continue forging ahead, confidently & authentically, through all of life’s adventures.

From Start To Finish CELEBRATIONS

When you decide to sign up for a boudoir photoshoot, it’s go time. It’s time to start sprinkling joy and celebration into your day, getting you ready for the big day. 

How is that possible!? 

Well,  firstly, you will receive a TON of interesting and practical information from me leading up to the big day. When you review it, why not make it a THING? Pour yourself your fave drink, slip into something comfortable & get cozy with a relaxing playlist in the background.

After gathering intel (which I hope will already soothe any nerves), you can consider setting intentions for your photoshoot. 

By setting intentions, you empower yourself to actively shape your shoot, rather than merely observing it unfold. Embracing intentionality means engaging with it on your terms. The right intentions can maximize the experience, allowing you to walk away feeling empowered, invigorated, & brimming with a newfound passion for life. 

I invite you to consider setting intentions that match your journey, where you are on it! Perhaps you wish to focus on your body’s acceptance/love/neutrality. Or maybe you want to focus on overcoming scary things! There is no wrong intention. Here are some suggestions: 

  • I will control what I can control 
  • I intend to embrace all that I am 
  • I intend to embrace this new experience with positivity & joy 
  • I intend to be my most authentic self 

On the day of your shoot, you will enjoy a professional makeup artist & hairstylist, who will accentuate your facial features. You will have fun getting ready (one of the best parts of any event, let’s be honest) before putting on the outfit of your choice!

Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to wear lingerie or be naked for your shoot. You can wear whatever makes you feel good!! Just make sure it fits you well & makes you feel sexy and fine. 

The stronger you feel, the more confidence you will have and the inner transformation can begin, rather than *just* external validation.

We will also do an empowering meditation, which helps to focus energy on your body, to prepare you for what is to come. I’ll lead it — so no pressure. 

Throughout the photoshoot, we will celebrate!  I will be your number 1 hype girl, not only cheering you on, and showing you jaw-dropping pictures of yourself, but also offering practical advice and support on how to pose to help you feel your best!

Boudoir Photography as a Tool for Embodiment 

Whatever mean things your mind tries to tell you about yourself is not rooted in fact. It is not rooted in reality. It is rooted in conscious and unconscious events, facts and things that have helped formulate these untrue things about yourself.

What is truth & reality — your body & how it feels. Boudoir photography with EAB is a mindfulness tool that helps you root yourself in your body, accepting that as the truth—your truth. 

Boudoir photography uniquely captures emotions & narratives. It is a way to feel your best, more powerful self as you connect to your body. 

By doing the hard, scary thing (the photo shoot), you are sure to boost your self-confidence through vulnerability, embracing the beauty of imperfections & stepping out of your comfort zone as an act of courage. 

It’s an incredible shift, one that I believe every woman deserves!

Share your boudoir journey 

After the big day, why do the celebrations need to stop?!

The photos we take of you commemorate your incredible body & spirit, in all of your splendor, at that exact moment.

Following your shoot, we will go through the images together in a private viewing, where you can see a stunning slideshow of some of my favorite shots from your shoot, a custom album I pre-designed just for you, & can even show you mockups of what the images would look like displayed in your home as wall art!

I want even the viewing process to be FUN & feel like an event. It should make you feel so special, like the #1 priority you are!

Then you can pick what products you wish to purchase, to keep your images close by, so you can remind yourself of your power day after day— especially useful for those harder days.

Afterglow 

After your shoot matters! You will be flying high, feeling the impact of your photoshoot. I suggest you lean into your personality and embrace either alone time or get together with your people. 

Another way to continue the celebration is to meditate, journal or discuss how the journey has impacted your self-confidence. Chat with people in your life to highlight the experience, while encouraging loved ones to embrace their journeys! Share the love — or maybe you will enjoy a boudoir party when you can do this with your fave woman in your life. 

Then, figure out a way that works for you to continue the celebration with your newfound confidence, self-care practices, & set future milestones in your ongoing journey of acceptance!
