Maternity Boudoir: Everything You Never Knew You Needed
Looking for a maternity boudoir photographer is no easy task. Looking for one that truly understands the female body is a tougher task, still. At Dawn V. Gilmore Fine Art Photography, I go out of my way to ensure that each woman feels like the beautiful, sexy woman she is.
The first trimester of pregnancy seems to wreak more havoc on the way we view ourselves than even the 2nd and 3rd trimester. Why? Because those first three months, we can’t really visibly see that we’re pregnant. Our bodies, however, start to develop a muffin top when we zip up those jeans. Later, we can’t zip those jeans at all! But hey, that’s when the fun really begins!
In a few short weeks, your bundle of joy is going to start showing his or herself in a glorious way. Through the beauty of your perfect body. That’s right, I said it! Your body is perfect. It is going through this magnificent transformation. You’re getting ready to literally birth our future. You should feel, not only privileged, but also proud of every stretch mark. That little guy in there, you know – the one telling your body that you need a strawberry and pickle milkshake, he could be an anthropologist that discovers an ancient civilization. That little girl you’re carrying around, she could be the doctor that saves children from a third world country. Not only is your child a miracle, but you are also. Your body is miraculous and if you decide to do a maternity boudoir session, I would be thrilled to be the photographer to capture it.
These 9 months are going to be some of the most memorable months of your life. I want you to embrace every time your belly gets a little bit bigger. I want you to love the fact that your breasts are going to give you cleavage you never thought you would have. Your confidence, your glow, your sexy curvaceous body, and I get to capture it all!
Katie R. recently worked with me for her maternity boudoir session. I think you’ll agree that all of these photos are stunning. Instead of continuing to talk about what I can do for you, I thought I should let you read about her experience – straight from her mouth to your…well… eyes! Here’s what Katie Had to say:
Working with Dawn has been such an amazing experience. She always makes me feel so comfortable in my own skin and really knows how to make anyone feel beautiful. I never thought I’d be comfortable with myself as I carried my twins but she made me feel just the opposite. If you’re ever looking to capture special memories or just feel sexy, she’s the woman to go to!
Katie is truly a sexy woman. Unfortunately, what most women do is look at photos like the ones I take and think that it could never possibly be them. They could never look like “her.” Guess what? They’re right. They won’t EVER look like “her.” Every woman I photograph has something different to offer the camera. It could be her sultry grin. Maybe it’s her come hither eyes. It could be her long legs. Every single woman radiates beauty in front of my lens. Yes, even you.
Woman after woman comes through my door. Some of them walk in entirely confident and others walk in still a little unsure. From the moment my hair and makeup artist and I greet you to the moment we sip mimosas (or virgin mimosas), you’ll see your confidence go up a bit. Then the hair and the makeup with some girl talk, and we see even more confidence. Now let’s put you in a setting where all of my models make it work (and look fabulous doing so) and your confidence is soaring!
One of the issues with women being photographed, be it maternity boudoir or headshots, is that they almost never see the beauty in themselves that we all see. That leads me to my closing thought: A quote by Ansel Adams. Summed up, even if you don’t see your own beauty, I do. I will capture the essence of you and everything that makes you gorgeous. It’s not only my job, it’s my privilege.
“A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense and is thereby a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.”
