This summer I had the pleasure of helping Jessica create a wedding gift that her fiancee, Ashleigh, would never forget. I always adore doing boudoir shoots, but they feel extra exciting when we do the shoot in secret. I'm sure anyone who has ever planned a surprise for a loved one can relate to this feeling. Even if the “purpose” of the shoot is to create a gift for a partner, I think the person doing the shoot gets a lot out of it too. Boudoir is all about honoring the best parts of yourself, inside and out. It's empowering to celebrate what you're all about. I think in most cases, the person receiving the photos already knew how awesome their partner is, but that doesn't mean they don't appreciate the beautiful, artistic expression of their partner's love. There's nothing more powerful than saying, “I'm pretty awesome, and I'm all yours!”

I just want to take a second to thank Jessica for bringing her all to the shoot and trusting in my efforts. As you can see, she is a gorgeous lady who does a damn fine job in front of the camera. Keep shining, my friend :)
