Personalized Boudoir Photography Sessions in Edmonton and Red Deer
As one of Red Deer and Edmonton's best boudoir photographers, it is common that people get very shy and self-conscious when they consider booking a session. The idea of getting in front of the camera can be very intimidating for some people, let alone the concept of being scantily clad in front of one. I get it. I had my own personal boudoir sessions photographed long before I decided to venture into this style of photography as the photographer. What I do remember from my individual boudoir photography sessions was that the photographer always made me feel safe and beautiful. I always felt comfortable, and the photographer didn't push me to do anything I didn't want to do.
It's also why I put myself forward in most of my images. If you cannot lead by example - how would anyone else think they could...right? Middle-aged women, 4 kids, a little overweight, always tired and just like YOU... :).
Let's narrow down your favorite asset for your Boudoir Photography Shoot.
What my boudoir photographer did talk about with me though were the good/bad/ugly body parts I thought I had. With GorgeousChaos Boudoir, I always speak to my customers well in advance of their session to identify what parts of their body they love and what parts they dislike. I wanted to do a little series about each major body part I focus on during a session depending on your own personal directions. It is totally normal to have favourite parts of your body and other areas you dislike - it's why you rarely see my tummy or legs in many of my images. They turn up occasionally, but I have other features I prefer to be focused on for boudoir photography.
I want to start with the Eyes.
I have never looked into someone's eyes - male or female and thought 'yuck.' Eyes are one of the most essential parts on the body as far as I am concerned and something that does not age or changes esthetically as time passes by. I remember being told back in my 20's that "if you want to fall in love with someone, fall in love with their eyes...they will never change." I took that to heart and have fallen in love with many eyes over the years...especially my children's. When I talk to a customer about their eyes, it is usually a safe area of their body that they do not worry about. Open or closed, eyes tell a story that is unmatched and can be the focus of any image I create. Your eyes speak volumes, and they can convey many different emotions based on just a slight change in your mood. The eyes can look happy, relaxed, sultry, flirty, fun, etc. with only a simple change of expression - and we definitely are going for all those descriptions during your photography session with GorgeousChaos Boudoir Photography.
