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 just owning who you are as a person that I find absolutely beautiful.” I couldn’t agree more, and knew right away that this shoot would be incredible. I was right. Take a minute to read what Chelsea had to say after her experience:

“Working with Evgenia was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I had wanted to do a boudoir shoot for a while and with my wedding coming up, I thought it would be the perfect gift for my husband-to-be. I ended up looking into 6-7 different photographers, but Evgenia was my favorite right away. She was quick to reply to my emails and always happy to answer any questions I had.

When it came time to shoot, Evgenia made me feel immediately comfortable. Her makeup/hair stylist Olga made me look stunning; the hotel was awesome and easy to get to; and though it can be uncomfortable to pose like this, Evgenia made it into the best time. I’ve never felt sexier or more empowered, and the photos ended up so beautiful I couldn’t believe it was me! I ended up ordering more photos than expected because I fell in love with every single one (which to anyone who has been photographed you know is a feat!) And while choosing my album photos, Evgenia dealt perfectly with my type A personality and made the money spent well worth every penny. Book her. You won’t regret it. I can’t speak highly enough.”

Are you ready to reconnect with your body?

How many of you can relate to Chelsea’s story? I can. And that’s why I love boudoir so much. To me, it’s the ultimate way of connecting with your body. It teaches you that it’s absolutely, 100% OK to just be you. Shooting Chelsea’s session reminded me that as women, we can do anything we put our minds to.
