Jessica: Boulder Boudoir Portraits in the Snow

Taking sexy bathing suit photos in the snow during winter is so much fun. Especially when the neighbor unexpectedly comes home and sees this going down. The good news about winter in Boulder is there’s usually one super sunny warm day right after a snow, which means prancing around in a bathing suit isn’t so bad! Jessica was a trooper and we had the best time laughing and messing around in the snow.

The Female Form: Creative Boudoir Portraits Pt.2

Ah the milk bath- ever a crowd pleaser, and for good reason. It’s both super fun and creates a sensual, eccentric way to capture the female form’s beautiful curves.

A couple years ago I interned in photography at a lingerie company in Portland, OR. There, I creatively directed and shot two sets of images that celebrate the female form. “Bodyscapes” we called it. The aim was to embrace all bodies as works of art and showcase the inherent beauty of female shapes.

In Part Two, shown below, I attempted to create thought provoking images that capture familiar curves in an unfamiliar way. Who knew knees could be so captivating?

The Female Form: Creative Boudoir Portraits Pt.1

A couple years ago I interned in photography at a lingerie company in Portland, OR. There, I creatively directed and shot two sets of images that celebrate the female form. “Bodyscapes” we called it. The aim was to embrace all bodies as works of art and showcase the inherent beauty of bodily shapes.

Part one, shown below, was my first nude model shoot, in which I attempted to capture the model’s complexities: her femininity, vulnerability, strength, confidence, sexuality, and humanity in tasteful black and white images. A tall order, but these are some of my most favorite portraits I’ve ever taken.

Maegan: Creative Portraits & Boudoir

Maegan is a special soul and close friend of mine, whose radiance is almost too bright for any lens. These portraits are some of the first I ever took of her, but I know there are many more sessions like this in store for us. If it weren’t for photography, we wouldn’t have met and we certainly wouldn’t have created such an intimate friendship within 5 minutes, which is what shooting always enables: a safe space for vulnerability, showing one’s full self, and embracing one’s beauty (perceived flaws and all). I love creating that space for my clients, and it’s even more fulfilling when a friendship is born. I’m thankful for that!

My favorite part about these images is the juxtaposition of delicate, soft, and feminine with fierce, playful, confident, and strong. None of us are just one thing; in photographing someone I always try to capture multiple elements of their personality, not just one facet.
