I love photographing women. I get the opportunity to bring out their playful, empowered side. Part of that is doing Boudoir shoots in my home town of Quesnel as well as my new city, Kamloops. These women I have photographed have taught me a lot about the inner parts of ourselves we may have repressed. It’s important to remember the sexy parts of ourselves. It is our divine power.

This is Krista. At the time of this shoot she was 47 years old. Krista decided she wanted to do a Boudoir shoot with me when I was in Quesnel last June. I am honored to do Boudoir photography. I think it changes women when they see themselves in a way they haven’t before. They get introduced to a part of themselves they had either forgotten about or never got to know. We all have a powerful, sexy, feminine aspect to us. Sometimes we just need someone else to show us. The camera I stand behind is the avenue that shows my clients their most intimate side.  Scroll to the bottom of this post to see what Krista has to say about her session with Paula and Photoheart Studios Boudoir and more images from her sweet an sexy shoot in Quesnel.

Here are a few reasons these shoots are so valuable for women.

Boudoir Shoots are Empowering

It comes from a place of truth. In lingerie, you don’t have much to hide behind so you have to embrace everything about yourself. That’s what I help women do in these empowering shoots. Find the space inside of them that knows who they really are. That intuition is what makes someone like Krista show her playful, sexy side.

You See Your Sexiness

This Quesnel Boudoir shoot materialized because Krista was ready to do this for herself. There isn’t a better reason I can think of. A gift like this to yourself is sending the message that you’re worth it. That maybe you need to get back in touch with your feminine power. It’s important to remember all the facets of yourself. That’s what I believe these shoots do for women. It is proves beyond what words could say that they are powerful and they are incredibly sexy.

You See Your Own Inner Beauty

Not only is Krista dressed in eye dropping lingerie but you can see that she feels beautiful. I just take pictures and give direction on the best poses for your body type. That feeling of inner beauty shines through with women because they are truly letting those negative voices go. Some women know that they have something beautiful and unique about themselves. Sometimes it takes lingerie and a camera for women to find it. There’s nothing I love more than seeing that light in their eyes. That knowing of their own pure self and the beauty that lives within them.

An Improvement in Body Image

We are all beautiful. When I look through my camera during a photo shoot, I see everyone’s unique beauty. I capture that. When women see their curves and their exposed skin in poses that express their sensuality, they feel proud despite whatever imperfections they might perceive themselves to have. If they show people (which they usually do), the reaction helps to boost their body image. We are often so incredibly hard on ourselves and these photo shoots in lingerie help to unveil those false beliefs.

When you look at Krista, do you see the stunning woman that I see? Do you see the playful side? The vulnerability, the beauty, and the femininity? This is what it’s all about and when you get a boudoir photography session, you’ll understand how it can transform you. Once behind the camera and in your sexiest lingerie, you’ll let all your fears and self judgment fall away. You’ll see who you really are to the outside world. It may just surprise you.

In Krista’s words…

Have you ever had a boudoir photo session? Yes or no, what made you decide to book your boudoir session with Photoheart Studios instead of another studio?

No, but I knew it was a great opportunity to step outside my comfort zone! I decided to go with Paula because we have known each other since high school and trusted she would take images I could be proud of.

How did you feel before going to your shoot? Any particular thoughts or concerns?

I was a little anxious going into it. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be confident enough. I am very private about my half naked body in front of others so I was nervous for sure!

What was your favourite thing about your photo session experience?

My most favourite thing was how easy Paula and Lori (her assistant) made me feel about myself & all the giggles ?. Paula & Lori made me feel more relaxed and willing to be vulnerable. We are all women in our own bodies & we should just be happy to be ourselves!

How did you feel AFTER your session? 

I was very excited after. I felt very good about how well it went and how easy it actually was! I was way more relaxed than I had expected!  I was so excited to see the final results…& was totally not disappointed when I received them ?

What would you tell other women who are considering doing a boudoir shoot?

I would just say if anyone’s on the fence about doing a shoot – DON’T hesitate…go for it…you WON’T be disappointed!


Thank you for sharing your experience Krista! If you are thinking about booking a boudoir session with me, give me a call and we can chat about what you are worried about, what your are excited about and what exactly is holding you back from doing this for YOU!
