Empowering, not Posed

When Amanda and I sat down to talk about her goals and dreams for her Minneapolis boudoir portraits, she wanted to create images that were empowering and full of movement and momentum and personality (avoiding portraits that felt over-posed, forced, or passive.) We had a relaxed, amazing session - Amanda just emanated elegance and calm, and the images are stunning.

I love doing sessions with bright, natural window light - not only is natural light super flattering, but in boudoir photography, it helps keep the images feel light and airy.

Shoutout to Kelsey Schwartz, of Hair by Kelsey for her stunning hair and makeup styling with this shoot! She did an amazing job, creating a natural, elegant, and super-clean look for Amanda.

We had a glorious afternoon session, taking advantage of the bright, natural light pouring in the windows of my studio. Here's what Amanda said about how she felt leaving her session that day: 

So empowered! My posture was proud, I met people’s eyes, I felt like a powerful whole person!
