the gift that gives back ~ victoria bc boudoir photography

“Loving yourself isn’t vanity. It’s sanity.” – Andre Gide

I see quite a few clients who initially think of boudoir because they wanted to get it as a gift to their partner for birthday, wedding, Christmas, etc. One of my favourite parts of these sessions is watching as the initial concept of a gift for someone else inevitably becomes a gift to themselves. Boudoir photography is such a fun and sexy surprise for a lover, but it’s so much more than that. It becomes an experience that changes each client, either in a small way just for a temporary amount of time, or significantly for life. I’ve seen every side of the spectrum. It always fills me up to watch a client see their photos and gasp as they realize just how much power they hold inside them at all times. This amazing woman was no exception. She came into my studio to get photos as a gift, and ended up gifting herself as well. (And I also got to steal her into my heart as someone I admire and adore because she’s a super rad adorable nerd and just all around rad lady!)
