Amanda // Intimate Maternity Boudoir Photography

I have probably mentioned this a few times but, I just truly have fallen in love with capturing women in their most vulnerable state. Whether it’s maternity, boudoir or mixing the best of both worlds. Anytime I get the opportunity to document these intimate sessions I get super giddy inside. No joke. It’s the same feeling I get when a bride and groom exchange vows, or when I get to photograph the special first moments of a newborn. I am vastly honored to be invited into such intimate and private times, to capture glimpses of their most vulnerable and private moments.

A few weeks ago, I had the honor to work with Amanda again. I photographer her journey into motherhood with their baby’s gender reveal and it’s been a real joy witnessing this special time in her and her husband’s lives. Expecting her firstborn and wanting to document it all; I joined her in the privacy and comfort of her home for an intimate boudoir session. Each boudoir session is different. The client gets to choose whether she wants it indoor, in a hotel or the comfort of her own home. While others choose a more outdoor setting. Whatever the setting, it’s important for her to feel safe, beautiful and completely free in order to be captured at her most natural and intimate way. The results are stunning. Not to bart but, I love how these turned out.

The light, the fresh makeup and the airy vibe the whole session carries. I have included a few photos with permission.

Amanda, thank you for feeling comfortable, brave and most of all, radiant! You truly are glowing. Us women are so often concerned with our bodies and self-image but what really shines is when we are confident who we are, no matter the stage. A constant reminder for myself through this pregnancy season.
