29 ~ A boudoir birthday gift ~ Boudoir Photography Austin Texas

This beautiful and impossibly sweet girl came to me for a boudoir birthday gift for her guy, but also a gift for herself. It's pretty awesome how it always winds up working that way, even if you feel you're doing the shoot for someone else. The word "empowering" gets thrown around a lot in the context of boudoir photography, but cliche as it may be, these sessions truly are just that. Empowering. To realize that we regular ol' women can feel just as beautiful as those so-called Perfect 10s in the magazines. To embrace our imperfections and highlight our best features. To get all dolled up and just have a darn good time doing something luxurious and a little scary and a lot awesome.

Here's just a sprinkling of photos from this pretty lady's boudoir shoot! Enjoy!
