When Jenn and I hopped on a call to discuss doing a boudoir shoot, she let me know she had a couple of goals in mind. This is part of why talking on the phone is so important! Don’t get me wrong, e-mail and texting work, but there is nothing like a phone call where you can dig a little deeper and get to know someone! She wanted photo she could use to both enjoy for herself and her husband AND professional photos of her aerial work.
I was totally down. I’m always open to combining the experience I offer to all of my clients along with something new. Jenn wears a prosthetic but for this shoot, she was open to not wearing it. I felt in that moment her boudoir shoot would be extremely powerful. This is why I got into boudoir. I love to photograph all bodies, all body types, and at all ages.
In my mind, my art is about showing that there are no limits and no restrictions to what is beautiful. All that is required to make the work is to show up and be yourself. Jenn’s shoot was fire because she showed her beauty and her strength. Diversity in our bodies is what makes us special and unique.
I always am talking about body-positive photography, but with this session, we also discussed what it means to be body-neutral. For me, this means sometimes not always being IN LOVE with our bodies, but always being appreciative. Boudoir is an excellent opportunity to do just that. This is what Jenn had to say about her session:
From the second I spoke with Nomi on the phone I knew it had to work with her! She was friendly, relatable, knowledgeable and a true professional right from the start and I knew I would get the best experience and outcome with her. Her boudoir experience is all that, and more! I can’t say enough about how great she is at capturing your true beauty and up for any crazy idea to get the best pictures for you. It was a fun, relaxing atmosphere and I literally didn’t want to leave when it was over! If you’re on the fence about a boudoir session for whatever reason don’t think another second- I promise you will be so happy you worked with Nomi!!!
I am honored to do this work and to have taken these beautiful photos with Jenn!! I can’t wait till the next time! Want to explore having your own session? Contact me here: https://boudoirbynomi.com/contact
