The older I get, the more I realize how daring I’ve become. Daring to the point that I’m downright sassy—not in a bad way, but in a confident, sure way. Yet, this wasn’t always so. It took years of experiences, successes and failures to arrive at this juncture in my life. And you know what? I’m better for it. Every day that I’m allowed, I’m on a continued mission to becoming my sassiest self yet!

What do I bring to my boudoir session? That’s a good question and usually it’s one of the first clients ask. I always start out by telling them to bring your openness, toss in a little courage and don’t forget to pack your smile.
Lofi/Neo-Soul Rap artist AudaRaquel has dreams, goals and ambitions. And she’s going places. This talented artist is familiar with modeling and all creative forms of art. However, she wanted to expand her horizons and do something outside her comfort zone. So, she chose to do a boudoir shoot with GlimpsePhotographyNJ.
I came across an article in my Google feed that wowed and delighted me. An article in Cafe Mom featured a few of Katie Holmes’ black & white boudoir photos shared on Instagram that illustrated her having fun, enjoying life and being comfortable in her skin. While the pictures don’t show all the boudoir shots she may have taken, or project a typical boudoir shoot, the ones shared with the public were nonetheless inspiring and refreshing. While I’ve never followed her career, I can see that Katie Holmes has blossomed into an independent woman who is a mother and more importantly, a woman in control of her life. Her pictures show that. She’s playful, sexy and sure of who she is and what makes her happy. Yeah, boudoir tends to bring that out of you. It’s uplifting, fulfilling and hella, fun. Kudos to you, Katie Holmes! DO YOU.
Interesting article on boudoir photography. It highlights what I, and probably most boudoir photographers believe in —body positivity.
