From the Photographer:
When Claire first contacted me for her boudoir session, she told me she was a young mother and that she was not completely comfortable with her body, but she was turning 30 soon and wanted to challenge herself to do a boudoir session because it was "now or never."
The session took place at Claire’s home. She has a spacious living room with a soft light and we started the session here. I wanted a cozy and peaceful feeling for her images, so I asked her to wear nothing but a pink pullover and some red lipstick. Sometimes, less is so much more!
Being a mother of 2 myself, my favorite moment is the morning, when the sun just rising, before the family wakes, and everything starts to speed up. This was my inspiration for Claire’s session: a quiet moment to be nothing more than a beautiful woman. And that day in October was so perfect.
During the session, Claire told me she still has some baby weight to lose. To this I told her that she has some baby weight to LOVE. I wanted to show her that sexy is anything but a number on the scale.
At the end, I saw her change her mind about herself; she was learning self-confidence. When I showed her some photos, she smiled and I could feel that something changed in a positive way!
And that is the part I love the most in my job!
