Boudoir Sessions for Mums on the Gold Coast // Female Boudoir Studio for Every Body
Ms E came in for a photo session as a new mum of a 1 year old, and she wanted to celebrate her body and its achievements throughout growing and nurturing a baby. She also wanted to give her husband a very special Christmas gift!

There have been some great articles written about boudoir for the post-partum body, and here is a paragraph from one of my favourites:
“Postpartum boudoir is about transforming your self-image and breaking through self-sabotaging and limiting beliefs you might have formed with the new you,” photographer Marisa Leigh of Intimately Yours in Los Angeles told SheKnows.
The act of putting on glamorous makeup, doing your hair, and then stripping down to lingerie in front of a photographer may sound alien and scary to many moms in those first months postpartum. But whether they do these sessions in those early weeks or months or years later, they report that overcoming that initial hurdle of fear and vulnerability is incredibly rewarding.
“Is it easy to do? No, but does it help? Yes,” Rami Thompson of Black Lace Boudoir in Virginia told us. “Women deserve to come in and have a whole day to leave worry at the door and just get a pampering makeover. I wish more women saw the beauty in themselves. Even after birth. That strength and courage it takes to give birth is something. Instead of running from it and hiding ourselves in shame we should be able to embrace ourselves in pride. We just gave birth to a tiny human who we help make for nine months.” – SheKnows article from Nov 2020
