"A woman who walks in PURPOSE doesn't have to chase people or opportunities, her light causes people and opportunities to pursue her." -Anne Nwakama Rebecca came into the studio with the mission of gifting her husband of 10 years with a beautiful and sexy portrait session that they could both cherish for days to come. She was visibly nervous upon arrival as just about ALL of my boudoir clients are. Chelsea, our talented HMUA of Beauty by Chelsea Dae did Rebecca's hair styling and make-up exactly as she pictured, including a pop of bring pink on her lips - which accentuations Rebecca's vibrant and outgoing personality.
To break the ice, we started off shooting Rebecca in a gorgeous gown with maroon accents that looked absolutely ravishing on her. Once we finished up in the studio, we headed over to her private home to finish the boudoir portion. As with all of my clients, we started with the "white-sheet-wardrobe." It is exactly that, a white sheet. It is the most timeless look in lingerie because years to come and years past, white sheets are still the most simple, crisp and tasteful dressing for both your bed, and your boudoir wardrobe. These are the fun, flirty "sexy-sunday-morning" type images that every client LOVES to have of themselves. We showed Rebecca some back-of-camera shots to ease her nerves and she was astonished and repeatedly said, "I can't believe that's me!"
We followed-up the white sheet ensemble with a beautiful black lace bra & undie set for some sexy bed and tub images. Boy was I excited when she mentioned she had a gorgeous clawfoot tub to pose in. What a lucky lady! Again, we got some more "OMG, I can't believe that's me!!" But it was! We finished off her shoot with some outdoor shots, a few sexy poses on her hubby's bike and then some gorgeous portraits in a stunning and private little woodsy cove behind her home. She rocked a sweet lace babydoll dress that looked absolutely beautiful on her.
When Rebecca came back in for her Private Reveal and Ordering Appointment, she brought her husband with her (it was his surprise) and let me tell you, while she had tears of joy welling up in her eyes (and again, saying "I can't believe that's me!", her husband had a grin so big it nearly touched both ears. They were incredibly excited about the images and ordered a beautiful custom leather album and some wall portraits for their bedroom.
Oh... and Rebecca teared up yet again when she held her album in her hands for the first time. Girlfriend... BELIEVE IT. That IS you. YOU are a real woman who is absolutely beautiful INSIDE AND OUT.

"What can I say but what a wonderful experience. Sasha understood and captured exactly what I wanted in my photoshoot that I had done for my husband for our 10th anniversary. She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera which is not so easy and her make-up artist, [Chelsea] Beauty by Chelsea Dea asked how I would like my hair and she hit it spot on. When my husband and I went for the photo reveal (which was a surprise for my husband) Sasha was so sweet and accomodating with very special details for the evening. We where both thrilled and I must say I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life. It's something every woman should experience in their lifetime."
