Boudoir Photography – Bay Area Portrait Photographer [How I Started]

March 13, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

When I first decided to become a photographer, I knew I wanted to photograph people. Especially those new tiny people we call “babies.”

But, like most things in life, my portrait photography journey took a very unexpected turn. That turn made me crash right into Boudoir Photography.

When I first started getting serious about my portraits, I would run into boudoir work of other photographers and be amazed, but I’d think to myself “I’d never be able to do that,” and I just left it at that.

Meanwhile. a really good friend of mine, who is the owner of Danielle Roesel Photography, is crazy about boudoir (check out her boudoir work here). One day, she invited me to shadow her during a handful of boudoir mini-sessions she’d be shooting.

Curiosity kicked in, I agree to tag along, and Pandora’s Box was opened.

I became very intrigued, and got a few great shots of my own.

By the time her last client of the day was there, I was ready to shoot! And I had a blast!

From this session, I went home and buried myself in whatever education resources for boudoir photography I could get my hands on. Then, I planned my own boudoir event.

Boudoir photography has now found a place in my heart, and I don’t think I’ll leave it alone.
