Nikol M – Celebrate You – Port St. Lucie Boudoir Photography
I met Nikol a while back at a wedding vendor networking group that I was facilitating locally. She was so sweet & she was there to showcase her lash extensions. We hit it off right away. We saw each other periodically out and about at networking functions. Then, when I posted something on Facebook about needing teenagers to shoot for my “Teen” campaign – she contacted me about her beautiful daughter Ali. That shoot will be featured on the blog shortly too! Well, after shooting Ali, Nikol decided that it was time for her to “Celebrate” herself and do her own shoot. I was HONORED that she chose me to capture her beauty. The fabulous Jackie Johnson of Abyss Salon did the hair & makeup transformation.I know – she is GORGEOUS anyway & this before/after isn’t a huge stretch my any means! 😉This series of images really had an “old hollywood” feel to them!I cannot tell you how much fun we had during our shoot. I think Nikol was actually surprised by how much fun she had!
This shot was for Nikol’s hubby who is a HUGE Jets Fan! I don’t follow football – so I have NO CLUE how they are doing this season – but I am sure her hubby can tell you. As a matter of fact, I think the last time they played he posted this image on Facebook with some smack talk to his non-Jets fan friends. LOLSexy pin-up! Ooh-la-la! Check out the cut out on the back of that outfit!
These were my FAVORITE series of images. Nikol has this cool little area between her bedroom and her bathroom that is basically a little area that has closet doors on the left & right and the bathroom door directly behind her. We were able to fill that cubby area with light to give her a HIGH KEY look! She was having so much fun playing with that scarf. Now that I think about it, most of my clients REALLY get into it when they have something to play with….well, I think Nikol is a knockout!It’s funny because almost EVERY client says – oh, no, I won’t be getting naked………..hahahah… well, by the end of the shoot, they are having so much fun and are feeling so wonderful that they just HAVE to show off their curves!
I typically like to end my blog posts with a “testimonial” from my clients. Well, this wasn’t an “official” testimonial but Nikol posted this DIRECTLY on my Facebook Page just minutes after I left her house from shooting: “AMAZING photoshoot! I feel like a ” supermodel”! You and Jac made me feel so comfortable in my skin! Despite what I am enduring in my life right now, You both me me realize that I am still beautiful and can conquer anything… 🙂 p. s. starting with my fear behind the lense.. lol thank you for everything!!! You are highly recommended in my book!“ – Well, THANK YOU Nikol. That means the world to me!
