Boudoir Meets Nostalgia
I love the contrast in pairing Nostalgic beauty with the fun, confident expressions of today. Lovejoy Noir is my venture into the world of Boudoir and Nude Portraiture. It has taken me a while to find the right mix of ideals and techniques to capture beauty the way I see it and 2023 will be an exciting year. I think you're going to like my approach.
Much like how my wedding work is about expression and personal truths, my Boudoir & Nude Portraiture is about baring one's vulnerable soul and basking in its radiant beauty. Most Boudoir businesses show you how beautiful you CAN be but my goal is to show you how beautiful you already ARE. It's a subtle difference but it's an important one to me.
The images below show that personal sexuality or sexual expressions are as expressive and diverse as their creators. That's why all of my sessions are collaborations with my clients. I want their portraiture to be a true reflection of their inner voice and not some prefab version of "self" that someone else creates.
Noir Boudoir & Nude portraiture will aim to highlight your form with natural and complimentary lighting while allowing you plenty of room to awkwardly giggle and find acceptance in the shy beauty that is you.
If you like being in control of your self-expression and enjoy the heart in my images please send an inquiry below.
*In 2023 there will also be a Bridal Boudoir program. I am currently shaping a workflow that allows portrait sessions, like those above, to happen during the "Getting Ready" stage of a wedding. It makes perfect sense. You'll already be done up and in a fantastic location. Why not take 30 minutes to capture something special? I'm actually thinking my first Bridal Boudoirs of 2023 will be complimentary. It should be fairly easy for those that hire me for 8 or more hours to fit this into their schedule. Still working on the logistics, obviously lol Just thought I would share some behind-the-scenes info.
We started a blog called Positively Ourselves.Positively Ourselves.
My wife Aly started it all. She has been such a source of inspiration and a cornerstone in my education on empathy and compassion. Working with her as been a rewarding and eye-opening experience. To learn about other people's struggles and experiences is humbling. It's amazing how much we all have in common.
Our upcoming body-positive adventure will be our attempt to be a positive influence in a world of judgements.
