Have you ever felt pressure to be something that you’re not?
To have thicker hair? Smoother skin? Whiter teeth?
No matter who you are, I think we’ve all felt that at some point. That somehow, if we were to attain some mythical “perfection” that happiness would soon follow.
I know that I’ve been fighting that fight for most of my life.
Then the thought struck me: life isn’t about some destination. It’s not about reaching a nexus and then somehow magically maintaining idyllic perfection.
If we spend our entire lives chasing this myth, then we run the risk of missing out on all the beauty that continues to surround us.
It’s about letting go and letting the beautiful mystery of life enter and fill us.
That’s one of the reasons why Aleey inspires us so much.
This was her third visit with us. So she knew the routine.
Show up at our LoHi Denver neighborhood studio. Get spoiled with chocolate (no champagne this time!) Gorgeous hair and makeup done by the best artists in Denver.
Then dressing up in sensual outfits that compliment and flatter. This time for a very special occasion: a maternity boudoir photo shoot.
You see, part of her amazing journey through life includes bringing another human being into the world.
Many women worry about the changes pregnancy brings to their bodies. Hormone shifts. Weight gain. Stretch marks.
But this time is a blessing and a miracle. It’s a time for celebration!
So, we were honored that Aleey wanted to have us document her maternity body with a boudoir session!
Boudoir photography is about so much more than taking sensual photographs with an internationally published photographer on vintage furniture in one of Denver’s oldest buildings (two years older than the Brown Palace!)
It’s about celebrating your essential beauty at every stage of your life. Through all the ups and downs, you have a beauty, strength, and resilience that is utterly awe-inspiring to capture with our camera.
We’ll take care of all the rest: hair, makeup, outfits, lighting, and making you feel like royalty. All the perfect conditions to let your awesomeness shine through and document every milestone of your life!
We love that Aleey came to us for a third time to document this stage of her life’s journey. Take a look at these photos and you’ll agree that she absolutely glows with a special beauty.
