Yael drove into my studio from sunny Florida to spend the day in Saraland Alabama with me and Winter from Wonderstruck studios in Mobile. She was a tall breath of fresh air. In fact, I'm pretty sure she's the tallest woman I've photographed to date. (I was so jealous. Ya'll know I'm NOT tall.) Yael booked a Wings and Queens boudoir shoot. That's a shoot where you get to wear my couture Victoria's Secret Angel Wings and you get to wear crowns from my ginormous crown collection. It's one of my favorite shoots.
Yael is an outdoorsy kind of gal working in forestry and conservation here on the gulf coast. Her goal was bring a little of the outdoors into my studio to create the magical boudoir portraits she had been dreaming of. It was exciting for me to work with Yael. She had very specific ideas of how she wanted to be photographed and she let me take the wheel to make those dreams come true. I couldn't be happier with the floral masterpieces we created together.
There were so many beautiful flowers in my studio.
I am so pleased with these gorgeous images. Looking at these for the first time, It's hard to believe that Yael is not a glamorous runway model...but she's a regular gal just like you and me. Except, I think Yael is more daring than me. Right now she's on a hiking trip, living her best life on the woodsy hiking trails of the west coast. She is bold.
ADVICE: Just come in and be yourself and bring some things that make you feel good.
What would you say to someone watching and reading this at home who's thinking about coming in for a Boudoir Portrait Shoot?
"I'd say Just come in, be yourself and bring some things that make you feel good. It's really hard in this world to say 'I AM BEAUTIFUL' but this experience really does make you feel like you are beautiful."
This is my favorite part of every session. It's not just the posing and the planning and making new amazing friends every day - it's opening your eyes to how beautiful you are each and every day. That's my jam.
