There are so many misconceptions about boudoir photography that I want to clear up before we get started...
Got it? Now it's time to see what boudoir really is...
- Boudoir is for EVERY type of women.
- Numbers do NOT define you.
- You can NEVER lose your sexy, no matter what age you are! Trust me.
- You don't need ANY type of experience at all.
- Women who invest in themselves, go further!
- Lastly, Be You. Do You. For You.
HEY WARRIOR, KEEP GOING!
I know what you're thinking- "These women are gorgeous. They're probably models who walk down the runaway every other weekend. They aren't just your average everyday-women that you see at your local supermarket."
Well, you're actually half right/half wrong. These women ARE completely gorgeous. That's a fact!
But what if you're wrong?
Appreciating your body NO MATTER what.
Recognizing that you've NEVER lost your sexy. EVER.
Documenting your beauty & growth even if you haven't hit your milestone!
Choosing to celebrate yourself for a change when you do hit that milestone, get the promotion, or turn 40, 50, 60+ years old.
Remembering that you don't have to be so hard on yourself, we truly are our own worst critics.
It's okay to live a little, splurge a little, and feel drop dead gorgeous every once in a while!
These strong women are your local PTA Moms, nurses, lawyers, doctors, teachers, etc; these are everyday women who decided to treat themselves to so much more than just a manicure or a makeover.
But these are 100% everyday-women. These are wives, mothers, grandmothers and so much more!
A "Luxury Boudoir Experience" with Jennifer Smith is a step towards:
MAKE IT HAPPEN. SHOCK EVERYONE.
First Jenn is amazing! She did my shoot about 3 weeks ago and it was awesome. She didn’t make me feel nervous at all. It was all very natural!! She made it the funnest experience ever. I got my album in the mail yesterday and it looks fantastic. I wasn’t expecting it to come in so fast! I would definitely do it again, only with Jenn. She is awesome and a lot of my friends are asking about her already!!!
I decided I wanted to do a boudoir shoot for my husband-to-be back in the of fall 2015. This was totally out of my comfort zone. I was so nervous to do this. But I really wanted to do something intimate and special. When I met Jenn, I immediately felt comfortable and relaxed. Her makeup artist, Liz knew exactly what I wanted and did an unbelievable job. I was beyond happy with how I looked!
The photo shoot was so much fun and I really enjoyed myself. Jenn knows her profession so well that all I had to do was listen to her direction. She made me feel so at ease and kept me feeling beautiful and confident as she told me the photos were turning out great! I had the best time with this entire experience and will be referring anyone I know to La Bella Vita Photography. The quality of Jenn’s work and her dedication to making sure the photos turn our perfect is very evident. I am so happy I chose to do this and am extremely excited to give this gift to my groom on our wedding day. Thank you so much, Jenn!
With my 10th anniversary coming up, I wanted to give my husband something that he would never expect. I booked my shoot with Jen and then it hit me, “I’m curvy! I’ve got a few extra pounds! I’m so not sexy!” And the anxiety and nervousness set in! I knew that Jen would make me look amazing, but I also knew that I wasn’t so sure that I had the confidence to go through with it!
So the day of my shoot came. I was still nervous about being in my intimates and getting my pictures taken in them! But it was amazing! Liz made me look phenomenal! My hair and make up were perfect! With Jen’s guidance, I was able to let go of my nervousness, forget about being “curvy” and laugh & enjoy!
When I went to preview the pictures, I couldn’t have imagined how amazing I looked (curves and all). This experience has made me feel more comfortable in my own skin, given me more confidence that this curvy girl can be sexy, and I can’t wait to give my husband his pictures!
I am so ecstatic and impressed by this whole experience. Jenn did a phenomenal job with not only the photos, but the entire experience. Not only is she professional and detailed oriented but makes you feel comfortable. Liz did a fabulous job with the makeup and hair as well, making sure that it went with the theme of the shoot. This was not only just a gift to the hubby but also a gift to myself!
“THIS EXPERIENCE HAS MADE ME FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE IN MY OWN SKIN.”
“I WAS BEYOND HAPPY WITH HOW I LOOKED!”
“THIS BECAME A GIFT TO MYSELF!”
“SHE DIDN’T MAKE ME FEEL NERVOUS AT ALL.”
WHERE WILL MY BOUDOIR SESSION TAKE PLACE?
The majority of our sessions take place in our home studio. We have multiple sets to choose from. Hair and makeup is done right on location (unless it is more convenient for you to go to our makeup artist’s spa).
There are some clients who would like to shoot in a hotel. If that is the case, please let Jenn know which hotel you are considering. The client is responsible for booking the hotel room. We often travel for boudoir sessions and would love to chat with you!
I WANT TO BOOK A SHOOT, BUT I AM SO NERVOUS.
Everyone is nervous! It is normal! You will have a great time though and when you see your gorgeous images, it will totally be worth it!
I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO POSE, WILL YOU TELL ME WHAT TO DO?
We will absolutely tell you how to pose and where to look.
All you have to do is show up and have fun!
DO YOUR CLIENTS DO THEIR OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP?
No, they don’t. I have a fabulous hair and makeup artist that works with me on every shoot. Hair and makeup are included in the retainer fee.
Liz Martin is an award winning make-up artist that owns and operates her own spa in Wilmington, De (Noche Azul Spa).
I am a full time boudoir photographer located in Middletown, Delaware. My favorite part of everyday is spending time with my husband and cuddling my three sweet babies. I work like crazy. I am super type A. The beach and smelling the salty air makes my heart happy.
There is nothing more rewarding than making my clients feel as gorgeous as they really are.
