Louisville Boudoir Photography | Souraya

Boudoir photography is one of my favorite things to photograph, and this badass Louisville boudoir session was so much fun! We played around with a variety of looks, from soft, to boss babe, to some fun ones with cowboy boots! I think the goal for boudoir sessions is that you come out of them feeling confident and sexy— for yourself.

Boudoir photography counts as self care, in my opinion! I’m open to booking boudoir sessions in Louisville, Lexington, Cincinnati, and beyond! Just contact me to book your photoshoot.

Boudoir and Studio Portraits | Sarah

Finally getting this boudoir and portrait session up on the blog! I loved shooting this moody boudoir session with Sarah in February-- with that fickle winter sun granting us with fascinating light and shadows flickering in and out of our shots. 

For the in-studio portraits, I wanted to experiment-- I painted a huge canvas dropcloth to use as a portrait background, some new printed wall tapestry backdrops from Society6, and colored light combos in my softboxes to play with. Sarah had some poses she wanted for her modeling portfolio, plus some killer hot pink boots that reminded me of Elle Woods from Legally Blonde so... obviously we had to get shots of those!

Camera: Canon EOS 70D
Lens: Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8

Sunlit Boudoir and Portraits | Victoria

As the weather got colder this winter (and then warmer again, because that's Kentucky for ya), I decided to move things indoors and work on intimate portraits and boudoir photography. Thankfully, Victoria offered to let me do some work of her to test a new space and different lighting conditions.

I've always really admired those who hire boudoir photographers and the photographers themselves who deliver really amazing experiences and beautiful, empowering images to their clients. I recently read and nodded my head along with this article from the photography website Fstoppers and this quote from Nino Batista stuck out: "boudoir is not as simple or contrived as taking a photo of yourself in your underwear". I agree, there's so so so much more going on between the photographer and client in intimate sessions like this. Again, I have the utmost respect and admiration for those who do it, and do it well.

I'm hoping to shoot more like this soon-- feel free to chat with me if you're interested in hiring me for a boudoir shoot!
