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.

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!”
