My approach to boudoir

My approach to boudoir is very different from the norm. For reference, the average boudoir photographer is more focused on the photography part and not so much on the meaning behind boudoir. Their idea of a boudoir session is to take steamy pictures and move on. They are treating it as if it’s just another type of photoshoot, in fact most of them are general photographers, so their forte isn’t even in boudoir. They book as many clients as possible, usually multiple clients per day, sacrificing quality and the true essence of boudoir. I figured right at the start of my journey with boudoir that it is meant to be so much more than pictures. It can be a very intimate and life-changing experience, and thus should be treated as such. 

For the majority of my sessions, I take a holistic & therapeutic approach to boudoir. Many of our troubles stem from societal pressures, which leads us to become disconnected from our true selves & to see only our body’s flaws, believing we are less than or never enough. So what if you tried falling in love with yourself, with who you are. What if instead of fighting your body, you started learning & discovering all its good, its sensuality, its pleasures, as you tear down the shame around body & intimacy. However, all these years living with a negative image of yourself, it’s hard to see otherwise. That’s where I come in, to guide you, to empower you, to allow you to be you, as I capture your sexy side & angles which you probably never knew existed

My boudoir sessions offer a truly unique experience, blending professionalism with a relaxed and intimate atmosphere, allowing you to open up and let go of any worries. I am not only your boudoir photographer, but someone you can trust and connect with on an intimate level. I encourage you to ask any and every intimate or “taboo” question you may have. Speak your mind, voice your concerns, your desires, I’m here for you and will do everything in my power to make sure your needs are met. I give my clients the attention they deserve before, during, & after our session, so I book a limited amount of boudoir sessions per month with each boudoir session being up to days apart. Quality over quantity.

How I Got into Boudoir & Why I Stayed

Before getting into boudoir photography, I was primarily doing freelance work as a graphic designer and editor. Doing this type of work meant I was dealing with photos daily. When it was up to me to shoot some content, I would use my phone or GoPro. Not thinking much of it or expecting to focus in on photography, since at the time, I was only freelancing in what I knew to fund my mobile app company I was starting right after high school graduation. A year in, I had a painful realization, the vision of creating a mobile app empire would not work out, it was very hard and unfulfilling, I lost the drive to continue, I was getting depressed because I would say that I had no plan b, it’s a mobile app empire or nothing, I made it clear to everyone I would do it, but I couldn’t. Thankfully, I had been working with some great therapists at the time and one day, as if an outside source sent the thought into my head, just the word ‘photography’ followed by a feeling of hope, I quickly hopped on the computer to find myself a good camera. Having been experimenting with designing printed apparel as another income stream for my app company, I knew right away what to do with the camera, reach out to models and have them model my designs to start a couple clothing brands. Photography also provided a way for me to meet and connect with new people, and in doing so, my mood and anxiety improved. 

Fast-forward a couple of years to 2019, and I came across an opportunity to shoot boudoir style images. I didn’t even know what it was until I did an online search. Me being open-minded, sex positive, and having already shot glamour multiple times, I knew I could do it, so I gave it a shot. Out of all the photoshoots I have done, nothing comes close to the impact a boudoir shoot can have. While many photo genres are about portraying perfection, boudoir is about authenticity, it’s real, it’s raw. Miraculously, around that same time, I was presented with the opportunity to acquire the Instagram handle @boudoir from an acquaintance, which I gladly accepted. It seemed that the universe was telling me to continue with boudoir, so I shifted my focus to it. As noted above, I am very open-minded and sex positive, I always have been, and combined with my other characteristics such as being a very empathetic, enthusiastic and motivating person, I knew I could offer a true boudoir experience that not only includes amazing pictures but empowers women to be one with their bodies and the sexual beings they are. When working with a woman with low self-confidence, I get to show her, not just tell her, how beautiful & sexy she is. It makes me so happy when I see a woman finally realize her worth, her strength, and her beauty.

More About Me

Aside from being a photographer, I am a designer, writer, producer, & director. Though I don’t stray far from my domain, some of these labels can even be applied to some of my boudoir sessions. The majority of my work is in some way related to sensuality and spirituality, for example, as a producer, I create music for boudoir. 

I enjoy nature, traveling, exploring, and trying new things. That even includes driving. What others call a dull, life-draining experience of the modern world; I call driving & vibing. I put on some music and drive, usually enjoying the journey more than the destination. 

I am not one to get stuck in the past or linger in a prolonged period of sadness or bitterness, quite the opposite, I am extremely optimistic & enthusiastic. I motivate and empower people to pursue their goals, dreams, and desires in all aspects of life. 

I am very open-minded and spend most of my free time learning and doing things that interest me. My favorite topics (in no specific order) include nutrition & fitness, psychology & personality, intimacy & sex, wealth & business, science & nature, and spirituality. I can dive into these topics, usually getting philosophical and theoretical. I enjoy having deep conversations and listening to people’s biggest dreams and goals. I’m the most supportive guy you’ll ever meet!
