We met Vanessa in 2019 when we photographed her second pregnancy (you can check out that blog here). Since then, we’ve been great friends and I’m so thankful for our friendship. We have the honor to photograph countless memories for Vanessa. She invited us into her home to capture a lifestyle newborn session when baby Noe enter the world. That’s when I knew I had to get Vanessa to model for me for a bridal boudoir.
And gosh, was it a beautiful idea because these came out STUNNING. We love that we were able to incorporate Vanessa’s small business into this session as well. Not only is she a mama to two sweet boys, she’s a fiancé and a small business owner to The Lovely Flower Box. Vanessa made the beautiful floral arrangement for this shoot and it was the perfect touch to this elegant boudoir shoot.
When people think boudoir, the tend to think of something more risque. Sure, it could be. But when I think of boudoir I think of empowerment, elegance, luxury. There’s something just beautiful about the silhouette of a women’s body. The ability to grow a whole human and yet still holds so strong. Boudoir is self love and intimacy with ones self. It takes bravery and courage to have someone capture you in this vulnerable state. Especially a outdoor boudoir photo session.
Thank you Vanessa for being a strong and beautiful person. We could not have done this without you. Although you deny being such a great model, you are seriously a superstar and should consider this as a career. You’re a natural in front of the camera and we are so honored to have worked with such an independent strong person like yourself. We cannot wait for more sessions to come with you!
