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.

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.

The Experience | Austin Boudoir Photographer

Why a photo session? More specifically, why a boudoir photo session? 

Is one of your goals or resolutions for 2019 to invest in yourself? To take better care of yourself? To love yourself more? 

Let’s be honest, I’m the photographer, so of course I am partial and think every woman should do this. But that doesn’t mean I’m wrong. Every single woman who has walked through my door and stood in front of my camera has waked out changed. Happier, more confident, proud of her boldness and bravery, feeling celebrated. 

Are you searching for something inside yourself, or do you already know where it is? Let me show you. Do this for yourself. Maybe you have a partner, or maybe you don’t. Do this for yourself because you deserve it. It’s time to take the leap and invest in your Austin Boudoir Photo Experience and in yourself. 

See you soon. XOXOX.
