Sooo super awkward post! Yes, these are photos of a boudoir session I did with the very beautiful and talented, Alex Chalkley Photography. I was terrified to post these because one, I am a very shy woman when it comes to my appearance and two, what would people think? The reason why I’m willing to be entirely vulnerable here is because doing a boudoir session completely changed my life. It built up my confidence and reminded me how wonderful it is to be a woman. I cannot stress enough how I think every single woman should be photographed this way and not only as a present to your significant other or husband to be but also to yourself. We are strong, resilient, intelligent, captivating, and mysterious. Those facts need to be embraced and confidence needs to flourish in us all.
I was terrified to be half naked and then pretty much naked. I was seriously breathing heavy and starting to have a panic attack. But the experience was comfortable, hilarious, and just like playing dress up with your girlfriends. Going through all of the photos I couldn’t help but think that when I’m very old I can look back at these and remember how I looked. I’ll remember my youth, my life and the journey that has taken me to my current state.
So please check out Alex Chalkley Photography. If you’re in her area, book a session and she also LOVES to travel. If you’re in the Utica or surrounding area, I would love to photograph you! Do it for yourself or for that special someone in your life!
