Estate Garden Goddess- Hope Valley Country Club, Durham NC- Jessica

On April 30th, I had the pleasure of meeting Jessica and her friend Tiffany in a beautiful estate neighborhood in Durham NC,  in the middle of the Hope Valley Country Club Golf Course. This neighborhood is amazing, with gorgeous estate homes. We setup shop at a beautiful home in the area, that featured two guest homes and a gorgeous garden. We were a little early for blooms but that didn't stop Jessica from turning into a garden goddess.

Jessica was absolutely stunning! Such a free spirit, she wasn't afraid to be silly and be herself. She proudly displayed her tattoos, featuring a "Starry Night" style scene from The Wizard of Oz. Like any romance session, it took her a little bit in front of the camera to warm up, but once she got going, she worked it!

I always tell my girls that rocking a t-shirt is one of the hardest looks to pull off in a boudoir session, but Jessica killed it! Wearing her (now) husbands favorite band shirt and laying on a wood deck has never looked so HOT! She had a blast with this look!

Okay! I lied, there was one thing blooming! And it was hard to pay any attention to this gorgeous tree with this amazing woman standing in front of it!

Who says that you have to be completely scandalous to be sexy? This look is so subtle but made for some of the hottest portraits I have ever taken! This is a shot her husband will never forget!

This is the epitome of what owning your body and being incredibly confident looks like! The biggest compliment from a boudoir client you can get is "I feel so comfortable and confident right now" That is exactly what Jessica said and here is the proof! And can we PLEASE talk about how amazing her shoes are! Also, if you are wondering to yourself if that is a Louise Belcher tattoo... it is. #yas!

This part of the session was so romantic, she was so soft and vulnerable, owning every minute of it. And her husband did a great job on that olive diamond! Unique and brilliant, just like Jessica!

And as always we save the best for last! Nothing is hotter than black lace and thigh highs! She is a vixen in this classic look. By the time we get to all black everything, boudoir clients know exactly what they are there for, to be fierce! Jessica proved that over and over again!

This cute little old fella was frolicking through the garden with his miniature side kicks haha He definitely made sure we took a break for champagne and dog pets :D
