Big Changes! Downtown Norfolk Boudoir Photographer

If the title didn’t clue you in, let me just say, we have had some huge changes on our end!

This past month has been filled with a ton of stress, a lot of surprises, and a lot of “oh no, I can’t do it!” moments! I will spare you all of the fun little details and give you the cliff notes version 😉

I knew my lease was coming to an end soon so I enlisted the help of an amazing commercial realtor to help me find a new studio. We searched and searched all over Virginia Beach but came up empty handed. I spent so many days and nights pouring over listings, only to end up feeling less than impressed with the spaces available.

Finally, after a ton of searching, I found the perfect spot! As soon as we walked in, I just knew it was all that I had hoped for.

I wish I had known just how much work I would be in for to make the actual location suitable for my needs!

After we viewed the location I had some serious doubts. It was at the top of my budget an in a location that I am not familiar with. I am not a Hampton Roads native and I am far more comfortable in Virginia Beach than I am in Downtown Norfolk. However, so many of my clients live in Ghent and the trek to the oceanfront can be a bit much!

A week after we viewed the space we faced an unexpected hurdle.

I walked into the studio to find it flooded just before a session. We had to move and it was as though the universe was making the decision for me.

This entire process has been so incredibly stressful. It has been filed with a lot of hard work and many long nights.

But when I got the keys and stepped in I knew I made the right decision.

Our brand spankin new Norfolk Boudoir Studio features gorgeous exposed brick, huge windows, and a stunning glossed concrete floor.

I could not have dreamed of a more perfect space and I am SO thrilled to call it home!!!

Expect to see more images of the new digs shortly, but for now, here you go!

There’s this bizarre notion that I’ve seen fairly often among my clients and it’s this: “LeZandra takes great photos, but I don’t think it will work for ME.” Boudoir is for everyone. Every type, every body, every style, every personality. A huge part of what I do is getting to know YOU and creating your […]

When I say that almost every single client is worried that this process intimidates EVERY. SINGLE. CLIENT. I’m not kidding. The hardest part of being a boudoir photographer is seeing how prevalent low self-esteem is – regardless of size. The best part of being a boudoir photographer is being able to squash those insecurities and […]

Societal pressures to meet a certain “ideal” are bad enough, but when you add criticism from your partner? It takes on a whole other level of intensity. Miss M spent far too much time hearing she wasn’t good enough and finally made the decision to walk away. As a result of all that mental fuckery, […]
