Photography by Katie Rivera Photography
There are often misconceptions that women have surrounding a boudoir session. Many women grow up thinking that it is very sexy, glamorous, dramatic, and maybe even pornographic, but it is our mission here at Boudoir Collective to show them that there is finally another way! A session just for her, to showcase her curves, delicacy, and perfect imperfections, in a way that shows her strength in her vulnerability, and allows her to know that she is enough. That beautiful person she sees in those images is HER.
Katie Rivera, the photographer, greatly embodies our core message. She is always delivering stunning imagery to all of the women who come to her studio, and we love the way she explained her journey to shooting boudoir & film:
"In the town I am based in, I saw a need for a Boudoir photographer that provides natural, simple, and timeless Boudoir photography. Since the opening of my Boudoir studio, I've had women reach out to me mentioning that they were so unsure about Boudoir until they came across my photos. There is something about the honesty of film that I think many women are drawn to; it must be that they are so happy with the natural way portrays their unique beauty. I wanted to create a space for Fine Art Boudoir photography that my town has not been introduced to yet, and so far it has inspired a lot of women to embrace Boudoir Photography and have a fun experience that results in timeless photographs! Using photography to bring confidence to women is the most rewarding."
Furthermore, we asked her on her take on fine art boudoir specifically, and her simple answer left us in awe. She said, "Honesty and emphasis on her inner beauty; when I help to encourage her to embrace her inner beauty and confidence it radiates through in photography and creates a timeless honesty that I love."
