Feel Alive | Austin Texas Boudoir Photographer

Miss C was celebrating turning 40 this year, as well as 15 years of marriage. She gave us 5 stars and says… “I feel so alive! I feel so beautiful and I am so proud of my butt. Something I have always been so self conscious of. Thank you!”

You’re welcome Miss C! You. Are. Welcome! - XOXOX

Learning to Appreciate your Body | Austin Boudoir Photographer

A quote from Miss J after her photoshoot with Kimberly Brooke Boudoir…

“Here’s the thing. I used to pick apart my body, like the majority of us tend to do. I didn’t appreciate it for its flaws & imperfections. I certainly didn’t respect it. While I’ve had my auto-immune disease since I was 18, and I’ve been hospitalized in the past, my body had never been through the level of pain & trauma it experienced those 40 days I was in the hospital. I watched this body - This body that I never appreciated - This body that I took for granted - This body that I constantly picked apart in the mirror - wither away every single day, and there was nothing I could do about it. When I was discharged from the hospital, I weighed 85 pounds, and I could not walk. I hadn’t been able to walk for over a month. I lost all my strength. I lost my muscles. I was functioning and moving like someone in her 80s. I couldn’t stand up by myself. I was winded from just ATTEMPTING to stand up. I had.no.strength. And you know what? It was during this time that I was losing my body (literally), that I began missing it. I finally began respecting it. I finally appreciated it. I took strength for granted. I took walking for granted. I took everything for granted. I’ve learned a lot from this experience, but one big thing I took away from all of it was that we NEED to love our bodies. It’s so so important. We NEED to appreciate them. Respect them. Bodies are incredible. They are a miracle. I’m only about 2 months out of the hospital now, and I have gained all my muscle and weight back! You know what this tells me? I’m strong. My body is strong. Even when it was weak, even when I thought it couldn’t do anything for me, IT WAS STRONG and it bounced back. From all the trauma it went through, it bounced back. Our bodies are strong, even when they may not seem like it. Our bodies are beautiful even when they seem imperfect. Our bodies are a miracle even when they are flawed. Our bodies, in all shapes and sizes are extraordinary. Believe it. Love it.”

Our bodies are beautiful even when they seem imperfect. Our bodies are a miracle even when they are flawed. Our bodies, in all shapes and sizes are extraordinary. Believe it.

Reasons Why You Must Do a Boudoir Shoot | Austin, Texas Boudoir Studio

The thought of a camera pointed at you may excite or terrify you… Having beautiful, sexy photos taken of yourself may be a bucket list item, or something you never even considered before. Every woman must do this. Here are just a few reasons why!  

Everyone Deserves to be a Celebrity for a Day
It’s not everyday that you get pampered with professional hair and make-up styling, dress up, and have a custom photo shoot experience.  In fact, it’s likely that you haven’t done it at all.  Take this opportunity to have that celebrity, supermodel experience for yourself.  Do something fun and a little extra!  Bring your girlfriend along and make it the best girl’s day out ever!  Or even better, you BOTH schedule your sessions back-to-back and  experience the supermodel status together, with your bestie there to support you.

You’re Nervous in Front of the Camera… So Get in Front of it! 
Imagine I’m just one of your girlfriends and we are hanging out together.  That is what most of my clients tell me they feel at the end of the shoot.  It is my job to make you feel comfortable in front of my lens, and there’s nothing to capture if I don’t have you feeling at ease, and ready to share your emotions and story with me.  There is nothing to fear.  I’m an easy person to be half naked in front of! 

You’ve Never Done it Before - Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone
Our first-time clients have so much fun, that they often become repeat clients!  A bit out of touch with who you are, or who you want to be? A beauty or boudoir session can help you reconnect with that person or see yourself in a whole new light and push you past your comfort zone and stretch what you thought you were capable of.  It’s all about seeing yourself through someone else’s lens.

You Search Your Camera Roll and Find Less than 10 Photos of Yourself.
Enough said. You deserve to exist in really amazing photos. I take really amazing photos.

You’re Single - Heck YES! 
Before you dive into a relationship, you’re taking a moment to focus on you. Good girl! There’s nothing more important than being happy with yourself. Celebrate that! 

You’re Getting Married - I Hear the Wedding Bells Now
A very popular time women come to do a boudoir session with Kimberly Brooke Boudoir is before their wedding. Our custom albums will make your significant other the happiest they could possibly be on your wedding day. Seeing YOU in all your confident and sexy glory is way better than a pair of cufflinks!

You Lost Weight… or Gained Weight, or Weigh the Same
If you’ve recently reached a fitness goal… well done. However, you don’t have to lose weight or “get into shape” before booking your shoot. No matter what your weight is, celebrate your body now.  With my expert guidance, your photos will be stunning.

It’s Empowering
When you’re in front of the camera, something spectacular happens. You start to see and feel all of the ways that you’re unique and extraordinary. And every time you look at your boudoir photos, it will be a reminder of that.  It will change your perception of yourself forever. You are beautiful just as you are.  It’s photo therapy, and it’s addictive. 

It’s Time to Spice Things Up - Let’s Sizzle
A boudoir shoot with me won’t fix your relationship.  However, it WILL change the way you see and feel about yourself. This can give you a new outlook and energy that will be irresistible to your partner.  The way we feel about ourselves as women has so much impact on our relationships!  So let’s give you the little boost you need. 

It’s Your Anniversary
I love when my past brides come in for their first wedding anniversary gift.  One Year = PAPER!  It just works!  Whether you’ve been married for one year or twenty five… a boudoir album is the best way to say, “I love you now more than ever… (and I still look amazing)”

You’re Pregnant… Congratulations! 
Coming from a mama-to-be herself, I’ve never felt more powerful than I do right now.  What a beautiful thing to document.  Women’s bodies do amazing things.  Pregnant women are the most beautiful thing in the world.  Once that baby is born and not connected to you in the same physical way, you will be regretful if you don’t capture this amazing time in your life. There are not many moments as important as this to mark something with images than this special time. 

You Recently had a Baby… You Literally MADE Another Human Being.
New Moms, you did all that work! Now it’s time to get a sitter and drag yourself away for a few hours to reconnect with your body, your femininity, your strength, and recharge yourself with some time for you. Maybe you had your baby a year ago and finally feel like you got your pre-baby bod back and want to celebrate that.  Awesome, we are here to celebrate right along with you, Mama! 

You’re Turning 21, or 30, or 40, or 50 - it’s Your Birthday! 
Put on your birthday suit and let’s throw a party with champagne, a makeover and gorgeous photos to celebrate YOU! 

It’s Father’s Day.
A tie is nice, but you’re way more interesting than a tie. Show your baby-daddy you’ve still got it, in the sexiest way possible. (But more importantly, show yourself!)

It’s Mother’s Day.
This Mother’s Day you don’t want to hear someone yell, “MOM” for just a few hours.  Put that Mom guilt away and spend a day with me in the studio.  Ask for the best Mother’s Day gift you could ever receive, OR gift it to yourself. 

You’re Healing from a Trauma - You’re a Survivor.
You've made it through something, and you’re rebuilding your life. I have so much respect for your courage and tenacity. It's time to start believing that you are worth it. Treat yourself to an empowering experience to help reconnect with what makes you a strong, beautiful woman.

YOU .  ARE .  WORTH .  IT .
Last but not least, and simply put, you’re worth it, darling!  So do it for you. 

This is by no means, and exhaustive list of all the possible reasons why you should go for it and do a beauty or boudoir session of your own. But it’s just a few that come to mind rather easily, or reasons that past clients have come in to see me.

You may now find yourself wondering why you should book with Kimberly Brooke Boudoir, yours truly. Let me give you just a few reasons. First and foremost, I care. I truly care that you have an amazing experience. feel confident, and receive amazing images and products from me. I have a LOT of experience. I’ve been shooting boudoir for over 10 years, and it is my specialty. I have worked hard to become an expert in my craft.. customer service, posing, lighting, composition and editing. I love what I do, and I do it because I love it, and believe in the power of it. I hope I get to meet you and capture your unique beauty and essence soon!

And Baby Makes 3 | We are Adding to our Tribe

I suppose it’s time for a very personal post. As I write this, I am 21 weeks along in my first pregnancy. WOW!

Real life just got so real. In November, we found out we are having a baby, and we now know that baby J is a baby BOY! Somehow, even more than 5 months in, and 2 weeks into having an actual bump… it still just somehow doesn’t seem like real life. I guess some things are just too much for a person’s brain to handle. I am going to be a Mom! I am going to have a son. My husband is now going to be a Father. I suppose that being pregnant and birthing a child, and forever being someone’s Mama is just something that truly changes everything in a way that nothing else has before.

I have found myself wondering about who this person will be so many times. What will he look like? Who will he become? What will he love, be interested in, be good at, be passionate about? What will his personality be like and who will he one day fall in love with? I pray for health, for blessings, for a child who I can raise to know and love his Savior. I pray for my husband and I to be good parents, by loving each other well, by following the Lord, and by being a team. I don’t think I’ve ever been so overwhelmed with emotions in my entire life.

My dear friend Julie of Julie Wilhite Photography came to our home to take a few images of Nick and I together to announce that we are expecting our baby boy in July, and I just love the images she captured of us. Here are a quick few to share our joy.

One thing you might be wondering is… what does this change for you? Nothing! Other than a little time off once baby arrives, business will go on as usual. I may just have an adorable little studio assistant now.

The Best Photos You've Ever Seen of Yourself | Austin Beauty and Boudoir Studio Photographer

I want to take the most amazing photographs that you’ve ever seen of yourself. One of the best things people say after seeing their images is always… “Oh my gosh how am I ever going to decide which ones? I love them all!” Yes, that’s right, so get them ALL! That’s what this lovely lady said when she was grinning ear to ear at the sight of her images. We did a few beauty shots of Miss ‘S’ before moving onto her boudoir images. See just a few of her gorgeous beauty/glamour images below.

Sometimes, I hear objections to why people don’t think they are ready to do a beauty or boudoir session...

“I need to lose 10 pounds.” - You do not need to lose 10 pounds! I am good for 10 pounds on posing alone!

“I’m not photogenic.” - There is no such thing as being photogenic. It has everything to do with how comfortable you are in front of the camera, and that is MY job! When people light up in front of the camera, it’s because they feel comfortable, and I’ve done my job well.

“I don’t want anyone to see the photos.” - Your privacy is of the utmost importance to me, and your images will not be shared without your permission. So rest assured, if these are just for you and/or your significant other, no one else will see them.

“I can’t afford it.” - I totally respect your financial situation, but I’ve worked to keep my sessions and products attainable to every woman. I accept all credit cards, offer interest free payment plan options, and applying for PayPal credit is also an option that many of my clients have utilized. I even offer gift cards on my site which can be purchased by your partner, best friends, etc… Every woman should do this, and you can too!

“I don’t look like the women on your site.” - Yes you do! The women on my website are women just like you. They are not models. And they look like they look due to posing, me making them feel comfortable in front of the camera, and guided wardrobe selection for their body type. All of them are gorgeous an have beautiful bodies. No one has a “perfect” body... We ALL have things we wish we could change, improve, etc. We are all our own worst critic. If you HAVE a body… THAT. IS. PERFECT! Let me show you how beautiful you are! Women don’t come to me because they have what society says is the “perfect” body. They come to me because they want to be proud of the one that they do have. The body that is perfect for them! Maybe they met a goal, or they’re getting married, it’s their 50th birthday or their 20 year wedding anniversary. They come to me because they haven’t done anything for themselves in a decade, or they forgot who they are because they feel like all they are now is a Mom and a wife and they need to see themselves again. You name it, I’ve heard it. Any reason, or no reason, they’re all valid reasons to do this. But having the “perfect” body, is not the reason.

Whatever reason you are afraid of doing this, is probably the very reason you should do it. I challenge you to sit in front of my camera, and give me the opportunity to see what I can see, and to show you what other people see when they look at you.

If you don’t love them, you don’t have to buy them. Miss ‘S’ loved ALL of her images and here are just a few favorites she allowed me to share. I’m in love with her boho vibes in her first look, Miss ‘S’ has the most piercing blue eyes… and you can never go wrong with a little black dress. She said she loves her freckles, scars and tattoos. I say, ‘Go girl!’

Enjoy! XOXOX - KB

Bridal Boudoir | Austin Boudoir Studio

The beautiful, just married, Miss “M” gave us 5 out of 5 stars! And I give you just a few of my favorite images from her sexy, bridal boudoir session. This gorgeous gal got married in Italy a few short months ago in a super private ceremony with just herself and her handsome groom… (swoon) and she wanted to knock his socks off for their first Valentines Day as a married couple. I’d say the bar is set pretty high from here on out. But she ended up blowing herself away with these gorgeous images.

“M” cracked me up when she said, “I realized during this process that I really love leather and lace! Has anyone ever worn as much leather and lace as me?!” Well… up until her session, no one else had worn that much leather and lace together, but I’m so glad that she set that standard because her wardrobe was on point and I loved it! ALL OF IT! And her pink wedding stilettos made a special appearance. H-O-T-T!

Here is what she said of her Austin TX Boudoir Experience with Kimberly Brooke Boudoir…

“Kim was amazing from start to finish! I was nervous but she guided me through the whole experience. I specifically appreciated the (Prep Guide) she sent beforehand with what to expect and it really made me feel more comfortable. She is so warm in person and makes you feel great! Even better, she would do the pose beforehand to literally show me how to do it. I love the images so much. The reveal was fun going through all of the photos and I greatly appreciated her expertise in helping me pick out my photos for my book. She is a pro! I also have to brag on the hair and makeup gals who were also amazing. My Victoria’s Secret hair lasted for days!”

Beauty and the Beach | Texas Beach Beauty Photographer

The beach. Truly one of my happiest places. So naturally I love taking beautiful photos there.

Tara wanted to capture some natural and whimsical shots of herself on the beach in Galveston, so away we went. I love the natural and neutral feel of her first look, in a simple dress she already had in her closet, and I also love the fun punch of color from her kimono, black suit and cut offs. This woman is truly beautiful, smart, strong and her spirit shows in these beautiful shots. She loved them so much she decided to make an album for her husband for their anniversary, which wasn’t even part of the plan.

Who says Galveston Beach can’t be beautiful?! I beg to differ! Here are a few favorites from Tara’s beach beauty session in Galveston, TX! I can’t wait to do some of these for my Austin gals on Lake Travis or Lake Austin.

The true beauty of a woman can be observed when she has spent the day at the beach.

I See You | Austin Boudoir Photographer

I am always so incredibly honored anytime I book a session with a new client, or a repeat client. Literally, every single time, every day, it never gets old. However, when someone tells me they are coming in from out of town or out of state, I just get giddy. What an honor that people would take an entire day or weekend to come visit me in Austin and have me capture their portraits, when I know they have options closer to them. It’s like I can’t believe it, every time.

This beautiful boudoir client came to see me from Houston, and she was such a rock star. She knew exactly what she wanted, and was more than ready to give the session her all and get gorgeous images for her upcoming wedding, as a gift to her fiancé. What I think she did NOT realize, was the effect that the session experience and resulting images would have on HER.

I always tell people that this experience is powerful, but those words don’t become real until you actually feel it for yourself. And Miss T felt it! Here is what she had to say about her session with me…

“YOU MUST DO THIS!”

Read on girl, read on! Because the best part is at the end!

“You absolutely must book with Kimberly Brooke Boudoir. I had known for a while that I really wanted to do a shoot for my fiancé for his wedding gift and started looking for photographers about a year ago. I came across Kimberly Brooke Boudoir and absolutely fell in love with her images. Upon booking, the nerves of being shot in lingerie (and even possibly nude) started to set in.”

“I was very nervous at the beginning of our shoot but Kim was seriously SUCH a delight. She made me laugh, gave amazing direction and ultimately made me feel incredibly sexy and comfortable. When we did the reveal I was so impressed by not only her photography skills, the attention to detail, how professional and artistic they were but ultimately, how beautiful and sexy I felt I looked. I had never seen myself in that light or that sexy EVER. I have always been self conscious of my body and it was liberating to see myself and not even think once that I looked anything other than amazing. I was literally brought to tears. I could not WAIT to send my girlfriends the pictures and they were all in love as well. When I gave my husband the photo album for on our wedding day I have never seen his face light up so much. He literally looks at it all the time and even our wedding photographer who captured the reveal told me, "I have seen many brides give their husbands a boudoir photo album but I have never seen anybody react the way that your husband did". That just goes to show you how AMAZING it turned out. I can't wait to do it again and document another stage in my life for not only my husband, but also myself. I truly cherish having these to look back at and be reminded that even with my imperfections I can look DAMN GOOD.”

Hearing these words for the first time, also bought me to tears! Then later, this woman also shared even more details about her experience. And this my dear friends, is what it’s all about. It’s why I do this thing. These words, this truth, these realizations. Read on…

… “today as I reflect on all of the AMAZING women I’ve met, know & wish I knew, I realized just how fucking proud we should be of ourselves as women, clothes or no clothes. Being a woman is hard. The physical expectations put on us by society, & ourselves, can be debilitating. I’ve struggled with my body image as long as I can remember (which terrifies me to think about how much harder it is for girls growing up today) but after getting these pictures back I was in TEARS. But these were tears of gratitude for my body, for looking at myself and thinking HOLY SHIT I LOOK AMAZING. I can honestly say these were the first time I looked at myself NAKED & was proud to be the owner of that body. So my message is this : YOU ARE A WOMAN & THAT MAKES YOU FUCKING FABULOUS IN EVERY DAMN WAY. So happy International Womens Day to all you beautiful women. We rock. Now go take some naked pics of yourself & be proud. Or hire Kimberly Brooke Boudoir & she’ll do it for you.”

And there you have it. Sometimes you need to see yourself through the eyes of someone else for the fog to be lifted. To see clearly that you are beautiful just as you are and can be SO EFFING PROUD to be who you are, in YOUR body, in YOUR life. THIS is my why.

The experience will be different for every single woman, but that is because every single one of us is unique, and has our own story. And I love that. I love it so much that I cry my own tears of gratitude when I hear the hearts of my clients and how their experience with me changed a part of their life or their self-perspective, and that I somehow get to be a part of this. It’s powerful stuff y’all.

Beauty in Jewel Tones | Austin Boudoir Studio

The beautiful Miss A came to me knowing exactly what she wanted! And I love a woman who knows what she wants for her boudoir experience. Her excuse for the photoshoot was to give her husband an amazing Anniversary gift that would knock his socks off… the reason was to have a sexy set of images that showed who she is at this moment in her life. And she wanted to wear gorgeous jewel tones, lots of lace, and a bold lip and nail color to capture her edgy personal style. I loved every minute of it. Here are just a few favorite that the beautiful Miss A allowed me to share with the world. Enjoy! And if you’re ready for YOUR Austin Boudoir Photo Experience, click contact, gorgeous! - Cheers.
