“a way for me to learn to love myself”
This RVA beauty photography experience was years in the making. Miss T and I have known each other casually for dam near a decade. Sometimes it takes time to come around and be ready. After we expanded the studio this year to include a new portrait area we launched a Model For A Day program. Then she saw an opportunity to do a session that would capture her how she felt most confident. She wasn’t convinced that classic lingerie boudoir styling was the look for her. However, she knew she wanted to do a session to capture where she is at this stage of life. We designed a session around her wishes. We also broke down her comfort zone enough to get her gorgeousness captured in boudoir images too. I am absolutely thrilled that I got to finally work with Miss T.
