Nerves. They can play a huge role when it comes to booking a boudoir photo session. And more often than not, they can lead to racing thoughts and questions like… “What if I don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera?”  “What if I’m having a really bad hair day?” “What if I don’t know how to pose?” “What if I chicken out!?” Ladies, believe me… I know how you feel. I have been in front of the camera too and it can certainly be intimidating at first. But trust me when I say that you won’t have any of these things happen at your photoshoot.

A Journey In Self Love
There’s nothing I love more than working with clients who are celebrating amazing accomplishments — especially when those accomplishments lead to a greater sense of self love. When Chelsea first reached out to me, she told me her incredible story. She had suffered a heart attack due to a rare issue when she was just 29 years old, and this motivated her to become the healthiest version of herself possible. Over the last 3 years, she worked her absolute hardest to lose 45 pounds. And guess what? She did it. Now, not only does she run and do yoga, but this sexy babe even climbs mountains!     Her goal for the boudoir shoot: to capture just how strong and able she feels now… because there was a time that she didn’t always feel this way. She said she wanted her photos to be unapologetic, confident and passionate. And to make things more exciting, she also wanted to present her fiancé with an album of these pictures on their wedding day. Of course I said, “Let’s get started!”     As we were talking about the upcoming session, Chelsea told me, “There’s something about a strong presence and a carefree attitude and […]

Why Boudoir Is For Women Of All Ages
Ok, ladies, let’s get one thing straight. Age doesn’t matter when it comes to beauty. Not. One. Bit! And despite what you may think, there’s no such thing as the perfect age for boudoir photography. In my opinion, any woman 21 or older should consider doing a boudoir shoot. This experience will make you feel incredible, no matter what your age is.     It’s time to put the misconception that you have to be young to do a boudoir shoot to rest once and for all. Boudoir is about one thing only: You. One of the best things you can do for yourself – no matter what age you are – is to stop comparing yourself to celebrities that you see online and in magazines. They might look ageless in touched up photos, but believe me, they age just like you. And every time you curse your grey hair, think about all of the young girls who are dying their hair grey on purpose. It’s in, ladies! So be proud of who you are, and embrace growing older. I often think of the saying, “Getting old is a privilege, an art, a gift. Accumulating gray hairs, pulling the pages […]

Do More Photographers Award
As an intimate lifestyle photographer, being part of a community that’s dedicated to education and growth in this industry is so important to me. That’s what first inspired me to join Do More Photographers. Through this group, I’ve had the opportunity to connect with amazing photographers around the world. And very recently, I had the honor of winning their 2017 Best Of Instagram boudoir photography award for two of my photographs. I couldn’t be more excited to share these photos with you!   Photo #1   I loved shooting this session. My client had traveled from Massachusetts to shoot a boudoir session with me at the Boro Hotel in New York City. Her goal: To do something totally outside of the box! She told me that she rarely wears sensual or risqué lingerie, and wanted to experience feeling incredibly sexy. She certainly achieved that! This session was an experience that allowed her to step outside of her comfort zone. Not only did she pose in various lingerie outfits, but she also did a few sensual nude images.   Photo #2 It’s extremely rare to get 2 winning images when there is a pool of around 4,000 photographers so I was super […]

Moms are sexy!
Being a mother is one of the toughest jobs in the world. If you’re a mom, then you know what I mean! You rarely have breaks and get no days off. And as many of you ladies know, it can be even tougher for working moms, who have to juggle huge responsibilities at home and at work! Because of this, it’s really not a surprise that many moms end up neglecting themselves. With so many things to prioritize, taking care of yourself can easily end up at the bottom of your priority list. How are you supposed to feel good about yourself when you barely get time to look in the mirror? My answer: Make time for yourself, even if it means getting a little bit creative to find that time. When you do have an afternoon dedicated just to you, I highly recommend that you try a boudoir photography session. Why? Well, there’s many great reasons… like the ones below.   It’s healthy to take time out for yourself As all moms know, children and family come first in everything that you do. While this is wonderful, the truth is that you have to take time for yourself once […]

Goodbye Low Self Esteem… Hello Boudoir!
Low self esteem sucks. And ladies, I know we’ve all experienced it at one time or another. For many of us, it stems from feeling insecure with our bodies. Some of us may not feel confident wearing a bathing suit or sexy lingerie because, well… we’re just not proud of our figures. As a boudoir photographer, I find that low self esteem is one of the reasons many women shut down the idea of doing a sexy shoot. And that’s what I hate most about low self esteem. Whether it’s not having the confidence to take sensual photos or not having the guts to apply to your dream job… low self esteem prevents you from fulfilling your true potential. The incredible thing, however, is that doing the things you’re so afraid of can actually boost your self esteem more than you dreamed possible!   Think of boudoir photography as a gift to yourself. “I’m absolutely shocked… This experience has been so liberating!” I hear statements like this time and again from women I’ve photographed. Contrary to what you may think, many women take sexy photos for themselves – not for their significant others. Boudoir photography really has the ability to […]

I’m talking about giving him a boudoir album filled with gorgeous images of you this Valentine’s Day! After all, sexy gifts make the best gifts!   The Gift of Boudoir Photography As you can imagine, posing for a boudoir shoot can be intimidating for many women. But think about how impressed your partner will be that you were confident enough to face the lens in order to give him the ultimate present. Guys just love confident women. What he may not realize, though, is that doing a boudoir session is also the ultimate gift to yourself! Boudoir is really one of the best ways to celebrate you. And to all of the single ladies out there… Being single doesn’t mean you can’t make this Valentine’s Day the best one ever!

Searching For A Female Boudoir Photographer In NYC? Let Me Introduce Myself.
Hi everyone! For those of you who don’t know me well, I thought the best way to introduce myself would be to re-post an interview I recently did with a local publication. Take a look, and if you want to say “hi” back, just leave me a comment!   It’s so nice to meet you, Evgenia! Tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you first become interested in becoming a boudoir photographer? Thank you so much! I have been a wedding photographer along with my husband for quite a few years. At one of the weddings, when the bride was getting ready, she asked me to take a few pictures of her in lingerie. I almost died as I didn’t know what to do with a girl by herself – let alone when she was barely dressed! Nevertheless, I snapped a few pictures, came home after the wedding, researched boudoir photography and fell in love. I got my friend to strip for me and practiced. When I first researched boudoir, lots of the images I saw were cheesy and tacky. I definitely didn’t want to create that. I wanted to create powerful, sensual and edgy images. Sometimes they […]

Intimate Photography: Encouraging Body Positivity One Session At A Time
Wouldn’t you love to value your beauty and identity without feeling insecure? How great would it feel to be free from negative self talk and to really cherish the body you have? Believe me, we all struggle with body positivity at some point or another — no matter how we look or where we come from. I realize that no one is going to feel completely happy with themselves all of the time. It would be nice, however, if when we looked in the mirror, we could love ourselves just a little bit more. So how do we do it? The interesting thing I’m going to share with you is that for many women intimate photography does the trick. In fact, taking boudoir photos has actually become a therapy session for women who want to feel the sense of well-being that they deserve. Doing a boudoir session allows you to heal low self esteem.
