For those that do not know I am a boudoir photographer in Chicago and the southwest suburbs. During my journey of becoming a boudoir photographer, I asked myself, how are we encouraging women to love themselves if we are only presenting them in an unrealistic way? And so it began my journey as a boudoir photographer seeking tasteful and empowering images of women. I am drawn to romantic and understated imagery and create modern boudoir artwork from a woman’s perspective. Every woman has a story and I would love to tell yours.
This lovely lady traveled to my studio from Bourbonnais and we had the absolute best time during our session. As soon as I saw her soft ginger hair and fair skin I thought to myself, this lovely lady needed to be dressed in ivory and lace. We moved from a simple peach sheer piece to lace garments throughout the session. The understated beauty of this session inspired me so much and I loved every second working with her.
The women that I work with on a weekly basis are absolutely incredible. My hair and makeup stylists work alongside me and we collaborate throughout the entire session. Their ideas are unending and I really couldn’t do what I do without them. They are constantly running with my crazy ideas and allow me to be a creative and understand my vision better than I do sometimes. Both of these ladies take a hands on approach and are only a foot or two away from you the entire session. Using their talents, they bring out your natural beauty in a timeless way. They really are amazing at what they do. If you haven’t had a chance to read about Renay and Katie, I encourage you to check out my ‘about‘ page to get to know them.
I would absolutely LOVE to hear from you. If you are interested in a beauty or boudoir session, simply fill out my contact form or visit my Boudoir by Elle photography site for details. I am currently booking Dec 2018 – April 2019 sessions.
