That's How it's Supposed to be, Living Young and Wild and Free- Empowerment Boudoir- Outdoor Boudoir Nine19 Photography- Raleigh NC

Positive self-image is NOT vanity. When you are healthy and beautiful on the inside, when you love your own heart, mind, and soul, when you stand strong and confident in your own truth, it shines out. I spent years feeling insecure, self-conscious, and guilty when I thought I might see beauty in the mirror.

Since 15 in My Stilettos, Been Struttin' in This Game- Legit Boss Celebratory Boudoir- In Studio Nine19 Photography- Raleigh NC

::GULPSinGOTDAMN:: This session is next level in confidence and self love! This amazing woman is a total package of brains, personality, and beauty! We had a full on blast during her boudoir session! Yes, technically this is a boudoir for her partner, but it’s so much more under the service. This day was all about her! This is a woman owning all of everything it means to be a brilliant, beautiful, and powerful in a society that tells her she shouldn’t be and her telling the world to deal with it! Literally, a KWEEEEEEN (especially with her Minnie ears on!)

As always, leave her some love in the comments and be sure to click the button below if you want to know more about being one of my fabulous boudoir babes!

Your Pics is a Blessing, I Think You Could be a Centerfold- Sultry Boudoir- In Studio Nine19 Photography Raleigh NC

What do I even say about this woman. This session literally has me speechless… When confidence, ownership in your sexuality and sensuality, knowing who you are as an individual, not being afraid to make a fool of yourself, and a little bit of Prosecco collide, this is what is produced. I think I found the second coming of Marilyn and the Goddess herself would 100% approve! I know I say this all the time, but HOW THE HELL DID I GET SO LUCKY?! I literally have the best job on the planet.

New Location Alert: Chateau O'Boyle- Nine19 Photography Raleigh NC- Wendell NC

As an artist, you have to do things every once and awhile to keep you and your work fresh! For me that can look like buying new set pieces or creating new poses for clients, but sometimes I have to take big steps and just completely step out of my comfort zone. This time that looked like calling my bestie and muse, Kassy, and dragging her to my new bestie and hair and makeup artist house and shooting there! It was fun to play around with new lighting and challenges. The affectionately named “Chateau O’Boyle” was built in 1920 is absolutely beautiful. This old lady is being renovated by Sara of Modern Alchemy and her hubby! Though she still has some work to be done, she has some amazing features and details. #Issavibe at COB but I am here for it!

Throwback Thursday 2018- Clean, Simple, and Sexy- Bridal Boudoir Nine19 Photography In Studio- Raleigh NC

I have told the story of this brave woman to other clients as a story of encouragement. How she overcame her fear and anxiety, stepped out of her comfort zone and in front of my camera. That she was one of the most understated beauties I had ever worked with. Her glamour is effortless. Her demeanor so incredibly sweet. I am proud of all of my clients, but this one always held a special place in my heart. Her story is not mine to tell, but for her to do this session took more than most.

Back when we did this session, she didn’t want anyone to see them. She was proud but private. She never ordered an album or anything to commemorate the session, so I stored it away in hopes that I would hear from her again one day. Well that day finally came!
