For our Cinderella inspired transformation, we decided to combine a bit of 'tattered' with 'glam' to play towards both aspects of her life in the movie.  Christen (the talented HMUA behind these transformations) brought along her tattered petty coats that she had in her house!  We thought it was a perfect touch (Cinderella after midnight). The lingerie and neck piece were both purchased at Walmart!  No need to drop big bucks on an amazing transformation!

Pink Pixie Boudoir {CT Boudoir, March 2017}

"The first two relationships in my life were extremely abusive, emotionally and physically, and really took a toll on my self image and self esteem. I also used to self-harm. As a result of these two things I spent a lot of time covered up and uncomfortable with my body. I started learning to love myself, and then I met my husband, who has only been supportive of anything I've set my mind on. I want to celebrate learning to love who I am and how I look, and give a gift to the man who encourages me to continue to do so." This beautiful woman came in to do a boudoir shoot not only with the intention to provide beautiful images as a gift to her husband, but also to celebrate a person victory with herself in learning to love herself better, and THAT my friends, is what makes me giddy.

Jen's passion is Art! When she came to me, she was working on going back to school for her art history degree. On the side, she enjoys reading (fantasy and non-fiction history), watching historical costume dramas and playing video games casually with her very hardcore gamer husband. Jen also knits and bakes.

I have to tell you I about died when she chose this gorgeous satin gown from my studio wardrobe.  I'd been WAITING for a client to select it for their boudoir shoot.  The way the satin catches the light when it falls over her curves is incredibly stunning, and even more so as it accents her beautifully fare skin.

Jen's favorite quote: "The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater". -J.R.R. Tolkien

Jen also brought along a sweater.  Not the every day oversized sweater, and not her own.  She brought a sweater that her husbands mother made for him, so there is so much more to these photographs that her husband can adore and cherish.

Jen wants all young girls to look at self image like this: "If it makes you feel good about yourself, wear it, do it, and it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, because, quite frankly, it's none of their business."

While she had blue hair when she contacted me about her shoot (and I have to admit, I was really looking forward to photographing that vibrant color), Jen toned it down a bit to a sweet rose shade of pink before the shoot that I also fell in love with.  Paired with the deep red lip that Chelsea gave her, she was a pink bombshell!  With so much vibrant color, who needs to wear anything else?

Jen has always been inspired by mother before she died, and now her stepmother. Both women were/are very successful in their chosen careers, and very outspoken about their views, no matter what the issue.

I don't typically do this, but because she mentioned that she loves art, creativity and trying new things, I decided to set-up a quick teepee in the studio for some creative boho-shots paired with my acrylic prism to get some neat light reflection.  Never hurts to play around and try new things, especially when it yields something fantastic.

I'm looking forward to some more creative and edgy boudoir shoots - and I'm always up for some new requests!

Nicole {Boudoir 2016}

Meet Nicole!  Nicole's husband is a full time mechanic and has recently joined the Army--he is currently at bootcamp and will follow that up with military training (he will be gone for a total of 10 months!). I already know that both Nicole and her two kids miss him so much, but they are also incredibly proud of him.  She has two beautiful children, and I know she'd do anything in the world for those two! To relax, Nicole loves to go horseback riding. It's something she's done since she was just a little kid and has loved it ever since. All she needs is a few hours in the saddle to clear her mind and remind her to appreciate the little things!

Nicole's favorite inspirational quote: "It's better to shoot for the moon and land in the stars than to shoot for the mountain and land in the rocks."

Nicole chose to have her portraits taken because her husband was leaving and she wanted to be able to send him some pictures while he's gone. She admitted that she knew boot camp wasn't going to be fun so she wanted him to know how much she loves him and misses him by sending him little surprises while he is there.

What a great gift to give him!

Nicole's Testimonial:

"I recently had my boudoir session with Sasha and I can't even being to describe how incredible the experience was!  From the minute I walked in, I was treated like a princess.  This was the first time I've ever had anything like this done so I was definitely shy and didn't know what to expect but Sasha made me feel extremely comfortable and helped guide me with exactly that to do.  She helped me feel so relaxed and made my experience so fun. Once I saw the finished products I was in awe.  The images were so gorgeous that I couldn't believe it was me!  The products are so incredibly stunning that I can't stop looking at them!  This was all a gift for my husband and I cannot wait to see the look on his face when I gift these to him!  I had such an amazing experience that I can't wait to make this a regular thing!  I've already been bragging about Sasha to all of my friends!  Now I just need to find more excuses to get pictures done!  Thank you Sasha!"
