Thursday Max and I are leaving on a jet plane and heading to Asia! We’ll be visiting Hong Kong, Xiamen, Okinawa & Nagasaki. I won’t be able to answer calls or emails while we’re gone, but please feel free to call me and email me anyways! I’ll be thrilled to come back to all of your messages wanting to book shoots!!!
I’ll be back on the 27th. Until then I’ll be sending my love from the other side of the world!!!
Same-sex marriage has been legalized in all 50 states!!!!
Today was a huge win for America history. On this morning of June 26, 2015 the Supreme court recognized that love comes in a variety of combinations. Love should not be limited on the basis of gender, but should be freely shared between people who…. well, people who LOVE each other! No one should have a say in who can be in love except for the people who are in love. I feel so much love for my fellow humans right now who are celebrating this huge win across the country.
I was about 17 years old when my then boyfriend convinced me that shaving my pubic hair was a good idea. He was a bit of an ass, rough around the edges kinda guy. Don’t get me wrong, he loved me, as much as you can love someone at that age. His ways of showing it weren’t all that healthy, which I didn’t realize until many MANY years later. At that age I hadn’t considered shaving ALL of my pubic hair. Literally. I gave it no thought. I trimmed it on the edges so that it wouldn’t be seen in a bikini, but I didn’t give it much thought beyond that. That is, I didn’t until he mentioned it. Then I was mortified. “You should shave your pubes, you look like a hairy monkey”. He would call it… it being my lovely vulva… a gorilla. He teased me about it. I was admittedly quite meek in my youth. I can’t remember my response, but I know I didn’t say what I should have said, which is “Go to hell”.
After I had had enough torment, I shaved my pubic hair. It was TERRIBLE!!!! I couldn’t figure out for the life of me why the hell anyone would ever do that more than once! There was intense itching, when I scratched I got angry red bumps. Once the hair started growing back it tore at the inside of my tender labia, which became sore because it wasn’t used to such abuse. Not to mention it looked like I had reverted back to my pre-pube days, my vulva looked like it belonged to a 12 year old. I hated it. He loved it. Of course. But when we had sex it hurt, the friction rubbed me raw on the mound where the hair used to protect it. I was exposed. I swore I would never do it again. But of course… I did.
If you’ve been on the fence about doing a session, or waiting for the perfect excuse, it’s time now. This holiday boudoir special IS your perfect excuse! No more, “I just need to lose 5 more pounds”. And I don’t want to hear, “I need to meet that special someone who I can do this for”. That special someone that you’re doing this for, even if you have a significant other, should be you first and foremost. Your photos being a gift for a lover is just a bonus. And STOP the number crunching on the scale and learn to love yourself NOW. As you are. Because perfection is not attainable and if you’re waiting for that certain size or certain number to be able to love yourself that much more you may miss the chance at loving yourself in this lifetime.
*EDIT* This deal is now sold out!!! But contact us to get your photos for Christmas anyways!*
This Living Social deal is available for one more week! So take advantage of this deal before it’s (and we’re) gone! It’s a bit of a bittersweet celebration for us as this will be our last holiday spent in Louisiana before we move on to new adventures in Charlottesville, Virginia! We’re planning on moving this coming spring. We’ll miss our friends and family more than words can describe. Neither Max or I have been far from our immediate family at all in our lives. We’re excited for what lies ahead and timorous about what we’re leaving behind. BUT!!! The good news is we’re still coming home as often as possible throughout the year to visit friends and family and we plan on doing boudoir session as well.
This boudoir sale is perfect as a Christmas gift for your husband, OR, fellas, you could buy your wife a session as a special gift for her. A gift that you will benefit from not only by the photos, but also by her extra boost in confidence!
Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions about the special at 225-571-3668.
As boudoir photographers we see a lot of undergarments. A LOT. Soooo we have an pretty good idea of what works best for photo sessions and what doesn’t. The number one problem that we see with lingerie is FIT! 8 out of 10 women wear the wrong bra size. If something is not fitted properly it doesn’t give you the support you need in the right places. You either have a muffin top or your bottoms are loose and baggy (which is not flattering in the least!). Your cups runneth over and (heaven forbid) there’s the dreaded back fat, or there’s a canyon sized gap between the bra and your breast. The most common mis-fit we see is items that are too small. Trust me, I get it, we all want to fit into that smaller number or size! The problem is you’re doing yourself a disservice. If your clothes don’t fit you properly, then you end up looking larger than you actually are due to the bulges. Continue reading →
A client of ours (that will be in our next blog post) shared this video with us. It is… quite naughty… in the best way possible! This is basically every client that comes to us. We give people a space to come and be themselves, whatever that may be, and permission to be gorgeous and flaunt it.
Thank you Agent Provocateur for this video!!!
I am SOOO beyond excited about this upcoming promotion in New Orleans! After spending hours combing through all the sexy hotels New Orleans has to offer (trust me, there’s a lot!) we have finally settled on Hotel Royal. Man, it was a tough choice! Hotel Royal won in the end because of the decadent mixture of sleek modern decor with lush wood floors. I mean, seriously, look at this room!
For those of you who are on the fence about doing a boudoir session with Breathless Boudoir but aren’t quite ready to get down to your skivvies, a beauty session is perfect for you. Beauty sessions focus on real portraits of you. You still get the goddess treatment from our staff of artists. Beauty sessions can also be shared with a friend, sister or relative if you would like to have photos with someone dear to you.
This lovely lady is Lauren. She just got married to the love of her life on April 22, 2012.
