boudoir with Jessica

From Jessica: "Stripping down to your underwear in front of another person can be daunting. Add in a camera and your own insecurities and it becomes downright frightening. Yet nothing could have been further from my experience with Roseann during our boudoir photo session. Roseann is a true professional, making certain from the moment I arrived I was comfortable. The setting for our shoot was pristinely arranged, private, warm and inviting. Together we shot three lingerie/kimono looks. After a few poses allowing me to warm up, we jumped right in. During the shoot Roseann offered encouragement and compliments as well as direction. Periodically she suggested subtle movements of the face, hands and feet that brought forth my best angles and curves to create a beautiful image. At her guidance, I repositioned myself into poses that were comfortable, natural, and kept the photos from appearing stiff or contrived. I felt I could be myself while her guidance and camerawork brought out my best self. The end result was a stunning set of photos showing sides of myself I didn't know existed. Strong, sensual, romantic and sweet, each photo captured a different part of my persona. The photo shoot was fun, sassy, professional and left me feeling absolutely gorgeous."

I love shooting boudoir. It's a fun and exhilarating collaboration. It's like this incredible gift I get to deliver to my client, and unwrapping it makes her feel confident and sexy. Our bodies are amazing and capable of so much, they should be celebrated. I've been on the other side of the camera as well, and it made me appreciate my body in a whole new way. You may think you're doing it for your partner, but really it's for you. And ten years down the line you'll be glad you did.
