Miss C’s session holds an extremely special place in my heart.
You may recognize her from when we were published in Philosophie Magazine.
Here is her story, complete with her full session:
When Miss C walked in the door she was full of energy and radiated happiness. She is strong and outgoing, and she had us laughing throughout her time in hair and makeup. When we asked us why she was doing our session we realized that she was so much more than your average twenty-something year old. Miss C was determined to have a session that showed off just how sexy she is. She was referred to me by another boudoir photographer for this exact reason; she wanted to be seen not as a sweet and beautiful woman, but as a sexy young vixen.
She wanted her surprise her husband. She wanted to shock him. She wanted him to know just how much of a bombshell she is.
Miss C’s husband is in his early twenties and is battling stage 3 brain cancer.
As a young married couple they have faced more than most people will ever encounter in life. She has stood by his side as he underwent surgery, chemotherapy, and treatment. She has been his nurse and his caretaker. She has clothed him and bathed him when he could not. She has been his strong rock on which he could grasp when so much in life seemed uncertain.
Miss C had her session because she wanted her husband to see her as the hot young thing that she is. As a young married couple, it is her way of reminding him that they need to enjoy life one day at a time. He is able to look upon his wife for the seductress that she is and enjoy her for who she is in this moment.
Being able to give them this experience provides me with so much happiness. I plan on becoming a sex therapist and being able help couples come together and celebrate their intimacy is my goal in life. Being able to do this through photography is incredibly fulfilling. My goal is also to help women reclaim their body and their confidence. Being able to photograph them in such an intimate manner is incredibly empowering.
