“Hi, I got diagnosed with breast cancer last week,” the email began. “I would like to do a photo shoot ASAP to capture myself before treatment.”
As soon as I read Ms. L’s email, I knew right away that I’d be meeting a fierce woman, a warrior. As we chatted, she told me that she was more interested in looking like she was at her best at the photoshoot, rather than looking sexy. “Sexy is a bonus,” she said. “I’m not opposed to it.”
A bonus? Oh, no Ms. L. You are sexy, inside and out. I think these photos more than prove that…
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
If you didn’t know already, October happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a time to do all that we can to support, educate, and raise awareness about this disease that affects so many of us women (and men too). It’s also a time to share stories and words of encouragement to honor those who have been affected by breast cancer. I hope you will leave some of those in the comments below… and continue to do so long after October is over!
Although Ms. L was a little nervous at first, we were laughing and having an amazing time by the end of the shoot! We even captured some tasteful topless images that look stunning.
This boudoir shoot was truly an incredible experience. Afterwards, Ms. L purchased a folio box with 20 mats. When she came back for the big reveal of her images, she couldn’t narrow it down to less than 30. So, I gifted her the extra 10 mats. The reason? I didn’t want her to look back on this experience and give breast cancer the credit for her being able to do it. Instead, I wanted her to take her power back from the disease, and to think about how she chose to do something exciting and positive. That is the essence of boudoir.
In a review, Ms. L wrote:
Evgenia is amazing. Her style is beautiful. She photographs with confidence and puts you at ease with poses that feel natural. Highly recommend!!
Thank you for trusting me to take these gorgeous photos of you, Ms. L. It was an honor to meet and work with you, and I hope that you will return again to take more!
