“You’re going to realize it one day - that happiness was never about your job, or your degree, or being in relationship. Happiness was never about following in the footsteps of all those who came before you, it was never about being like the others. One day, you’re going to see it - that happiness was always about the discovery, the hope, the listening to your heart and following it wherever it chose to go. Happiness was always about being kinder to yourself, it was always about embracing the person you were becoming. One day, you will understand. That happiness was always about learning to live with yourself, that happiness was never in the hands of other peoples. It was always about you. It was always about you.”
- Bianca Sparacino
I love intimate sessions. The delicate garments, striking poses, and so much empowerment. But if I had to be honest, I’ve grown tired of seeing the same thing. I was inspired by another session, one in an artists studio and thought “this would be perfect”. I just needed the perfect model. I wanted someone who felt at home surrounded by art. Someone who loved having a paintbrush in hand. I wanted someone who felt their most beautiful creating art. Sophie came to mind instantly. She prepared the space, and holy cow, I was blown away. She is so creative and has such vision.
Our plan was never to call this a “boudoir” session. And I still don’t consider it one. BUT, after this session I realized I had a new idea for boudoir sessions. I want to photograph you when you feel most beautiful. Whether it be when you’re baking, in the garden, after a shower, dancing in your living room, just anywhere you feel the most in love with yourself and life. That is where your next boudoir session should happen. I’m hoping to get a lot more sessions like this one. Somewhere you can be completely vulnerable, and completely yourself.
