Boudoir Photography: Vancouver, Langley, Victoria


bou·doir 
n.
A woman's private sitting room, dressing room, or bedroom.


Whenever I've been commissioned to take boudoir photos the first thought I have is how honoured I feel to be chosen to document something so personal and private. The confidence that these ladies show is unreal. First choosing to do the shoot is a brave and courageous move. In a society where there is such an emphasis on 'how we look', 'what is beauty' and all the other pressures of being a woman - these women confidently choose to take intimate portraiture of themselves and feel good in their skin. Embracing yourself and your beauty to show it in front of the camera is hard and these women that I've photographed confidently went forward and I'm so grateful to share some of their images with you. With the ladies permission - here are some of the photographs from the recent marathon.
