VANCOUVER INTIMATE PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY – NATURAL WOMAN
PERSONAL PORTRAITS – VANCOUVER INTIMATE PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
(Optionally, if you wish to do a session like this without hair and makeup we can! Contact me to discuss rates!)
Let me just start off by saying this: there are a lot of boudoir photographers in Vancouver. I love the idea of boudoir photography but honestly struggle with the name of the genre. I know, it’s referencing a bygone era where women’s bedrooms were considered their own private sanctuary of luxury, lace, and perfume. Ok, so, I get that. But how should romantic and pretty translate today? Ultimately, these portrait sessions are sensual and very personal. They really shouldn’t be based on anyone else’s identification with self or worth. They are about you. What does that look like? More importantly, what does that feel like? So, we take it there.
AUTHENTIC and NATURAL PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
We live in an age where authenticity and natural beauty are being set against being glamorous. But we can be real and ourselves while also being decked out like Beyoncé at Coachella. At the heart of all these personas that we put on is a regular everyday person. Therefore, in boudoir or intimate portrait photography, it comes down to taking this genre and elevating it beyond an unattainable Victoria’s Secret ad. Well, we push it to make it less posed, more introspective, and about emotions. Usually, these photos are taken of a person alone, so it makes perfect sense to make it more about the inside than the out.
INTIMATE PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY – STAND STRONG IN YOUR POWER
My goals: lift, inspire, and empower. I want to take attainable authentic introspective photos of you. Alternatively, let’s create pictures of you that are beautiful enough for a full spread in a magazine. Walk away feeling like an unstoppable force of nature standing in your power. As a result, you get beautiful and powerful portraits of yourself.
IT’S INTIMATE STORYTELLING!
It all comes down to the story. We create a story for you. It’s a tableau of part of your story. Whether it is based in reality or not. Most importantly, the story is about the feelings. Those parts of you based in truth. The deeper truth in these pictures makes it editorial photography. It’s natural photography because I take the time with you to allow you to breathe. There is absolute beauty in that moment when you are just breathing.
