Why I did a Boudoir Session

boudoir session

As most of you know I’m a professional photographer. I Looooooovve photographing women. Although I dabble in other genres, my favorite subject hands down are women. I attended a boudoir workshop in New Orleans where boudoir photographers from all over the country attended to learn from the best in the industry.

So while I was there I scheduled a session for myself with Craig Lamere, a photographer that I have be admiring since I started my career. It was the best investment in moi! So many reasons…Of course I was nervous and was wishing I had hit the gym a little harder and dieted a little more, but once my session started all of that pressure slowly disappeared. Two hours later I felt as if I was on top of the world, Queendom for a day.

I felt amazing getting my makeup done, my hair was on point and loved that sultry  New Orleans weather, and I ended up with a collection of images any ole’ or young girl would want for themselves.

It is the gift that keeps on giving. I have a gorgeous album, prints and everything else I could order. I like that the “sexy” side of me was captured by a professional, a lot better than my occasional sexy phone selfie done alone. I thought to myself, why did I wait so long to do this?


I love that I have  documented this moment in my life, a moment that certainly is “middle age” quickly going to the next phase of what society says is old age. Truly, I believe sexy has no expiration, it is something inside that can certainly can be revealed and it is okay. Our sensuality is a part of our identity, why not celebrate it? Why be ashamed of it?


As a result, from my session I am a better photographer. I learned so much being on the other side of the camera. Being in that vulnerable position in front of another human being, staring at you with a camera I know what that feels like. I also observed my photographer work and get the best images of me I have ever had. Truly amazing. So many ahha moments!


It was great therapy. As women we are always doing things for our families, taking care of business, rarely doing something for ourselves. This was the ultimate indulgence. Matter of fact it will probably become an annual event that I treat myself to.


So my ladies and guys…btw (stay tuned for my dude-oir session I’m going to be shooting soon) do something special, give yourself a boudoir session. If you don’t choose me lol, choose a photographer that will be patient and give you an incredible experience. Don’t wait for your body to be “perfect” or you will never do it.

Happy Monday!
