Getting the Glam On!

Recently we started offering boudoir sessions and much to my surprise, I fell in love with this type of photography. Not for the reasons many might think. What I love was watching women of all ages and sizes coming in and not feeling so confident about themselves or their bodies.

Each woman was quick to point out what was wrong with them and we didn’t need or want to hear their negative voice. We all get that enough in our lives, our own self talk can be negative. So, watching these women leave the sessions giggling, laughing and walking on cloud 9 because they felt liberated, free and BEAUTIFUL was such a delightful sight.

What about the woman who doesn’t want to do boudoir? WHY can’t we get a make-over and have some beautiful photographs of ourselves? You know your children will want them and well don’t we all want a photo of ourselves where we look and feel GORGEOUS!

So with great hesitation, I’ve been calling these glamour sessions. The reason I’ve tried to avoid calling the sessions ‘glamour’ is I remember the days in the 80’s of glamour sessions where you went in and had the hair, makeup, the heavily padded shoulder pads, leather jackets, feather boas, etc. This is NOT that type of session. Let’s think Hollywood glamour, Vogue glamour, being the bombshell of a woman that you are no matter your age or size!


Bring an outfit that you might wear for a date night out, soft fabrics, jeans and a solid color tee shirt, I’ve seen women come and rock it with a simple camisole and beautiful scarfs. Make this a reflection of you whatever you choose.

Some come get dressed up, pampered and be photographed in that awesome outfit you have. We look forward in getting to spend a fun filled afternoon with you.

Vanessa & Wyatt ~ We Will!

I don’t get as many opportunities as I’d like to photograph sessions at the Gene Coulon Memorial Beach park in Renton.  However, that chance came along when Vanessa and Wyatt wanted some portraits at the park.  I think I have to make more effort to get out that way as I love that location for portraits and we really didn’t get to touch on much of the park during our session!  ~ 253-970-5689
