I’ve been hiding.
I can make excuses that I’ve been busy at work, and preparing for the arrival of our second child, and all these things are getting in the way of photos, but the reality is, I’m scared.
Everybody has been asking me to post the photos from my first boudoir shoot. I’ve avoided the subject where I can, but I think it’s time.
I was petrified.
The boudoir shoot was an amazing experiance. I loved shooting with Kirsten. She is an amazing woman and it was an honour to capture her femininity and sensuality, but I’ve been scared to post photos and show what we created that day.
I’ve met “amateur photographers” in their 30’s and 40’s with mid-life crisis’s who got young models to take their kit off in the name of “nude photography” but in reality all they wanted was the “young” and “nude” parts, never actually working on the “photography” bit. Not all were like this, but enough to make me avoid doing photography with women in anything less than you might see on an average day in an average shopping mall.
I helped Kirsten look and feel special and made her proud to show off her photos. It’s an amazing feeling to be a part of that. To be trusted as a photographer to be professional and bring out the best in the subject, for the subject.
It’s creating art with somebody else’s body and your mind.
I want to thank Kirsten and her husband for allowing me to post about the shoot and for all the referrals they have given me so far, but mostly for allowing me into their home and showing me what I’m capable of creating
