Boudoir images: What I see through the lens
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be on the other side of the camera during a boudoir photography session? As a photographer, my calling in life is capturing not only the beauty, but the uniqueness of each woman I photograph. I love helping them learn to cherish themselves so that they can feel a true sense of self love and self worth. There is no greater feeling! Today I’m going to give you some insight, and share just what I see in the boudoir images that I take… When I look through the lens, I see women who refuse to be held back in life – by others or by themselves. When someone says they “can’t”, they know they “can”. They don’t accept no for an answer. They are moms, business women, young women, grandmothers. They’re strong and brave. And they’re always up for a personal challenge… like being in front of the camera. They know how to look insecurity right in the eye and give it a wink. I see women from all walks of life — curvy, thin, and every single thing in between. And you know what? Each one is gorgeous in her own way, […]

Yes, Intimate Photography IS For You!
Have you ever been so close to booking a boudoir session, but chickened out at the last minute? Maybe you closed the window on your favorite boudoir site, carried on with life, and left your goal sitting in your browser history… to be deleted at a later date. When Ms. I. first contacted me, she was looking to take boudoir photos to gift her husband. “He loves black and white photography,” she told me. “I’m looking for something beautiful, raw, and edgy.” Little did I know, she almost didn’t take the chance. “Doing a boudoir shoot was something I had thought about for quite a while… at first not seriously. I was just checking out a few photographers’ galleries and thinking ‘There’s no WAY I can do that,'” Ms. I. told me. “You can always make a million excuses. I’m not in shape, I’m too old, I hate my hair, I’m too self conscious. But after months of thinking about it, researching it, and telling myself why I couldn’t do it, I found your site and something clicked. I thought maybe I can do that! It was Black Friday, and in a moment of shopping-induced euphoria, I did it. I […]

Brides-to-be: Add some bridal boudoir to your wedding planning!
Hello February! We may be in the middle of a polar vortex here in New York City, but the good news is that Spring 2019 isn’t too far off. And you know what warmer weather means… That’s right, Ladies — wedding season! This is truly one of my favorite times of year. I love the opportunities I get to work with brides who can’t wait to present their husbands-to-be with the gift of boudoir. Not only that, but it’s an amazing feeling to see the women I photograph gain such a spark of confidence in front of the camera. I know that they will carry that spark with them when they walk down the aisle. Is bridal boudoir for you? If you’re planning a wedding, I have some advice: Go. All. Out. This is one very important time in your life that you’re going to want to remember forever. Boudoir is one of the best ways to capture your pre-wedding glow. It’s the perfect way to celebrate all of the hard work you’re putting in to look fab for your Big Day. Sure, there will be some nerves involved… I won’t lie. But there will also be a ton of […]

Self care is the solution to a happier, healthier you.
How many of you have had one of those days lately? You know, when you wake to find the kids fighting, your husband searching frantically for his favorite shirt (you forgot to wash it), and your mom calling to remind you that she needs help around her house. Even the dogs won’t stop crying at you for their treats. And this is all before you leave for work. As you take a deep breath and prepare to face the world, you silently promise that you’ll take care of yourself tomorrow. How many of you have broken that promise? How many of you have broken it over and over again? No matter what you were raised to believe or what your life is like now, one thing is certain: Self care is not selfish. As women, we tend to feel like we have to do it all. We often feel the weight of responsibilities heavy on our souls. But if you don’t take time out to give yourself a little TLC, not only will your emotional and physical health suffer, but your burnout will affect how well you can take care of others when they really need you. Self care improves […]

The wow factor: A luxury boudoir photography experience
Sensuous, lacy Agent Provocateur lingerie. Snap. A classic pair of Louboutin heels. Snap, snap. Hair styled in gorgeous long waves. Makeup on point. Snap, snap, snap. There are boudoir photography shoots, and then there are luxury boudoir photography shoots. The difference? A luxury shoot shows you the “wow”. It’s a start-to-finish experience that goes beyond your wildest expectations. And it stays with you. Forever. A luxury boudoir photography shoot begins long before you walk into the studio. It starts when the photographer answers your inquiry and takes a lot of time to get to know the real you. She asks you questions like… “What does sexy mean to you?” “Why are you interested in doing a session?” “Who do you admire? Why?” By the time you walk though that studio door, you and your photographer already know each other. You’ve chatted and laughed. You’ve told her about your insecurities. But there’s a sense of comfort and ease because to you, she feels like a rock. She promises to introduce you to your inner goddess, and somehow you know – without meeting her in person yet – that she’ll deliver. Yes, you’re nervous… But you’re also excited to feel 100% amazing.

We’re in a confidence crisis, and it’s time to make a real change.
If you’ve had your eye on the news this week, you may have noticed quite a few articles talking about women struggling to find confidence. “Women are held back in the workplace by a lack of confidence in their own abilities,” Refinery 29 wrote as they explored the alarming trend of low confidence in women in tech. It’s not just tech, though, Ladies. It’s everywhere. Blistex, the lip care product brand, recently conducted a survey of British women. The topic: Confidence. The results: The women surveyed said they felt bad about themselves an average of 4 times a day. 61% said that they didn’t think of themselves as being confident. 7% said they never felt confident at all. And 28% said their confidence was easily altered. Yes, we are certainly in a confidence crisis and it’s time we made a real change. None of us deserves to feel bad about ourselves — and certainly not 4 times per day! I know that achieving self love is much easier said than done. Confidence doesn’t come easy – especially in a society that’s constantly showing us images of what it believes we should look like. As if we should all fit the […]

Boudoir Photography Images: The Perfect Gift For Your Guy
“Boudoir to me is a beautiful, artistic visual language expressing love, passion and all the feels,” my recent client Tonya told me. Wow, was she on point! I really could not have described the experience better myself! When Tonya first contacted me, she told me that she was in a long-distance relationship with the love of her life. Her goal: To give him an incredible collection of boudoir photography images to show him how she felt about him. As you can see from the photos below, she certainly achieved this! Before our photo shoot, I discovered that Tonya’s inspiration was Marylin Monroe. “Sexiness to me means sultry, playful and seductive,” she said. In her sexy boudoir session, we were able to capture this sentiment perfectly. While a boudoir session is something that can make us ladies feel confident and empowered, it’s also one of the most perfect gifts to give to a significant other. Imagine the look on your guy’s face when he sees you in your fiercest, most gorgeous moments. I truly can’t wait to hear what Tonya’s boyfriend thinks of her photos. After Tonya saw the results of her session, she sent me this little note: Hi Evgenia, […]

4 Sexy New Year’s Resolutions
As we wave goodbye to 2018, many of us have great intentions to kick off the next 12 months in a fabulous way. The problem with New Year’s resolutions, though, is that they’re rarely kept. Sure, we may start off strong – but by the time week two of January rolls around we’re typically back to our old ways. Maybe the problem is that we don’t make the right resolutions in the first place. Perhaps if our resolutions made us feel sexy, we’d want to see them through! So in honor of 2019, here’s 4 sexy New Year’s resolutions that you may want to keep…   Out with the old, in with the new! Wearing gorgeous, sexy underwear not only makes you feel empowered, but it’s a true act of self care. No matter what type of clothes you’re wearing, it’s what’s underneath that makes you feel your best! Start off this year by splurging on some beautiful, sexy bras and panties that make you feel like the goddess you really are. Toss in a teddy or a corset for good measure, too! Then clean out your undie drawer and get rid of old things that make you feel blah. There’s […]

Make 2019 The Year You Find Confidence
Self-confidence… It’s so easy to lose and so hard to build. How many times have you felt like you’re in an uphill battle, fighting to feel good about yourself? The path to self-love sure isn’t easy.

5 Reasons To Be Thankful You’re A Woman
It’s been a bit of a challenging year for women across the globe. But guess what? I sense that 2019 is going to be incredible for us. Because girls are strong. We are smart. And we are all beautiful inside and out. What better time than this Thanksgiving week to reflect on the reasons to be thankful for being a woman. If you’ve ever doubted yourself or your worth as a woman, you MUST read through these! We’re bad asses… but gentle at the same time. It’s no secret that women are naturally built for toughness! Just think about how difficult it is to carry a child in your womb for 9 months and then bring a little human into this world. If that isn’t a sign of strength, I don’t know what is! Women without children are no different. We work hard and care for ourselves and our loved ones with a passion that runs deep. It’s just in our nature to do so… and that makes us total bad asses!     We make life beautiful. What’s the difference between a bachelor pad and a couple’s home? A woman! We can’t help it… We simply love to make things […]
