WOW, this is REAL! Haha. It was only a very short time ago that my friend Kim said, “You should be a boudoir photographer”. And given my history, it kinda made sense. But start a company?? From the ground up?? With a new baby?? …Why not!
Here’s my story in a nutshell: I lived in Los Angeles, CA and worked as a model for about, oh.. 7 years or so. For the last four of those years, I was a briefcase model on the gameshow “Deal or No Deal”… FUN!!! After meeting my Hubby and having our first babe, I wasn’t exactly in model shape anymore. Cue Hubby (who’s also a photographer); he suggested I “return to my roots” and do a sexy photoshoot. Ugh. the rolls! the stretchmarks! But I was game.
When I saw the finished product, I had to pause. No, it wasn’t the Deal or No Deal model in front of me, but it was beautiful. Instead, I saw a wife, a mother… a body and girl who had more of a story then just “model”. It was a reaction waaaay deeper than what I was expecting, and makes me tear up just reliving that moment…
So why not share this feeling with the world?! Share it with every woman out there who feels her body isn’t what it used to be, who argues her prime was 10 years ago… Here’s the truth: yes, maybe you were more toned and taught when you were 20 years old (who wasn’t?!), but now, NOW… you’re more aware of who you are, you know your curves, you’re more assured of yourself as a person.
This is my new mission, to reveal the SEXY in every woman who poses in front of my camera! And for you married and soon-to-be-married gals out there, I’m sure the Husbands won’t mind the surprise, either (wink wink)!
