Can we say dream client/ new friend? Mrs. K came in to do a shoot for herself and was a little ball of nerves before we got started. She has a gorgeous, and large family that she adores, but hasn’t done anything just for herself in a while. She had thought about doing a shoot like this in the past, and decided it was finally time now. This was the best way to celebrate her 40th birthday!

When Mrs. K sat down in the makeup chair she was grinning ear to ear, pulling her shoulders really high like she was a bit nervous, but even moreso giddy and ready to get started! She didn’t know what to expect, and I’m so glad she decided to trust me with her first shoot and hand me the reins! She was a total natural in front of the lens and an absolute darling. That is the best way I can describe her. Throughout the shoot, afterwards, and during her viewing we got to know each other, and I can say without a doubt that she is the sweetest person ever, but with a sass that makes her totally unique and lovable. And it doesn’t hurt that’s she is freakin’ gorgeous!

Here is what Mrs. K had to say about her experience- “Doing the photo shoot with Tamara was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I’ve always been shy in front of the camera and I am not one to walk around my house naked or anything like that. When I was driving to my shoot I was so nervous, and didn’t know how I was going to do it. I wanted to do this as a gift to myself for my 40th birthday. I knew I would get through, but I just thought I would be dying of anxiety the entire time. Tamara made me feel so beautiful and so sexy! I felt empowered and that I could conquer anything that day. I can’t really put into words how amazing the experience was… but it’s up there with my wedding day and the births of my 3 kids. I love the pictures, my husband loves the pictures and he’s dying to know when I can go back for another shoot!” – Mrs. K

What made this shoot even better, was that at her ordering appointment, she decided to order a 40″x60″ (3 by 5 feet) giant metal print of one of her nudes to hang over their king size bed. (check the gallery below for the photo) This makes my heart swell so much. She has a piece of art that she sees daily as a reminder of how gorgeous she is. For me, seeing a woman decide to love herself like that is so fulfilling, and exactly why I specialize in boudoir. Throughout the session I get to see the hesitation in the beginning, the vulnerability of opening up, and the end product of confidence and regained sensuality.

Thank you so so much mrs. K! I can’t wait to get you back in the studio and see what magic we create this time!
