Have you been itching to get in front of my camera but you're not set on the idea of stripping down to your skivvies? Maybe a Glamour photography sessions is just what you need! Grab a friend, your mom, or your sister and celebrate International Women's Day by getting your GLAM on with the Cheeky team!
This year, we had a record number of women in the studio ready to bare it all for their Valentine! Who could blame them? When you have the choice of getting your Valentine a card and chocolates OR gorgeous images of you looking H-O-T, there really is no comparison! And let's be honest here, ladies... when it comes to boudoir, it really is a gift for yourself as well!
As I mentioned in a previous post, this year, I’m going to start my own Happiness Project. For those of you who haven’t read the book by Gretchen Rubin, the basic gist is this: each month, choose an area in your life that you would like to devote more time to or improve upon. However, you don’t work on one aspect and just move on when the new month comes, you continue your work and add on the new month’s goals. The idea is that as you continue to improve the things that you wish to improve upon, you’ll find yourself in a happier place where you start to live in the moment and really appreciate your experiences. Before I get into what my mission for January is, I must first state my Commandments for this project: I have no preconceived notions that this project is going to be an easy one, but I really want to make a good effort. I also don’t want to beat myself up over it if I stumble on this journey. I’ve done that before, and that made it that much tougher to continue with my goals (especially when it came to working out).

I've been holding onto these images for a bit because I wanted to share them on a specific day... Miss K's birthday! So, Happy birthday, Miss K!
When Miss K came to me, she was ready to celebrate the journey of self-love that she's been on. She wasn't doing a boudoir shoot for anyone else but herself, which I LOVE. Backed by her close girlfriends for moral support, we started the day with hair and makeup and a bit of girl talk. This time before a photo shoot is crucial because it gives time for those that are nervous to calm their nerves. However, I don't think that Miss K needed it... because when it came time to start shooting, she absolutely ROCKED it!
I met Miss N for the first time during the Grand Opening of my new studio this past June. She wanted to do something special for her new husband and she felt that this would be the perfect gift for him… boy was that an understatement! Miss N decided that for her Reveal, she was going to bring her husband. The setup was that they were going to help a friend move, but on their way, she had to stop by another friend’s house to pick something up. When they arrived to the studio, he could tell that something was up, but couldn’t quite figure it out. When it finally hit him, he was like a kid in a candy store! It was, by far, one of my more memorable hubby reactions. There were a lot of exclamations, shock, and awe. It was very clear to me: this man DESIRES his wife! At one point, he said (and I’m paraphrasing), “If I had known you were going to do this, I wouldn’t have hired a wedding photographer! I’d rather spend my money on this!” She was right… this was the perfect gift for her husband. The next morning, I received […]
Part of my mission here at Cheeky Boudoir is to truly empower my clients... to remind them of their beauty and sexiness that lies in the midst of their everyday lives. My biggest hope is that my clients are able to carry over that rush they get from their photo shoot into the rest of their lives.
This Summer was full of clients wanting to gift their boudoir photos to a special guy in their lives. Miss A was no exception! She wanted to do something extra special to celebrate her wedding anniversary.
No matter what your profession, I believe that it's truly good for the soul to do something out of the ordinary to stretch your creative muscles. This past September, I finally got to bring to life my months of planning for a pin up photography shoot! I had originally planned on photographing only one of my Femmes, but I had such a hard time trying to decide which one that I asked them all to be part of this epic outdoor pin up shoot.
Okay, let's face it... lingerie shopping can be tough for anyone. However, when you're curvy, it can be especially tough. I mean, come on, is it a crime for us curvier women to want to look sexy without looking trashy? While we have a couple fantastic lingerie stores in Saratoga, it leaves something to be desired for those of us who wear over size 18. Don't fret, though, because not all is lost! I've put together a list of some fantastic plus size lingerie retailers for you!
