Getting in front of the camera for a boudoir session is a sacred moment for a woman. It is an hour or two of her life that is all about her love for herself. It takes a lot of strength and belief in herself to disrobe partially or fully in front of person with a camera. My clients know when they are with me, they are safe; not only from harm, but from the judgmental expectations of others.
Bre is a model who took her confidence a step further. She agreed to step in front of my camera during my first live broadcast on #Periscope; the live broadcast offered other photographers a look at how I shoot and clients a birds eye view of their experience. We had never shot together before, so getting in front of my camera was a getting to know you experience for her.
To watch Bre during the live cast you would never know how vulnerable she was feeling. But, I assure you she overcame a lot that day. The pressure of the worldwide audience was intense for us both. "What if I make a mistake or say something wrong? What if...? What if...? What if...?"
Overall, the session went really well. Bre's images were absolutely beautiful. The space we shot in was small compared to my studio space, so at times I was shooting on the bed or even from inside a closet. We had gorgeous east facing natural light to work with. The light washed over like a beautiful waterfall over rocks. But, don't take my word for it. Watch the video below:
