It's Not What You Think...

It's Not What You Think...

Ever have the experience of not liking something or believing something only to find out that you had a total misconception?

This is probably one of those times, where you think you know or have a good idea of what Boudoir is and what it's for.

  • Maybe you think it's something you give or significant other on your wedding day. Well, you could do that.  But that 's not all it's for.

  • You might be aware of the emotional benefits of a session but don't feel like you're ready. Now is always a good time for an emotionally uplifting experience.

  • Maybe you want to treat yourself to a session but you think you need to lose 5 or 10 pounds.  You could wait till then, or you could celebrate who you are Now and where you are Now in your life.

  • You might even think it's something dirty or perverted but it's really about Empowerment, Confidence and Artful Sensuality.

  • You might think that you need someone to do it for or someone to give the images from the session to.  It's YOU !!  Do it for Yourself !   The images will be there to remind you of the experience.


 

Who's this Gift really for?

Who's this Gift really for?

If you are considering a Boudoir Session as a Gift 🎁 for your significant other for their birthday, your anniversary, as a wedding gift or for any occasion, I have no doubt they will love the beauty and surprise of seeing you in the images from your session.  However, no matter how much they love their gift, the amount of time they can look at and enjoy those images is limited.  On the other hand, you will have The Experience with you at all times, you have the ability to recall your session and remember how it made you feel about yourself.  

So, Who is the Gift really for?

I hope that you will decide to treat yourself to this wonderful experience soon.  When you are ready, please contact me and I'll help you to prepare, so that we can create something amazing for you.

 

On the Fence?

On the Fence?

I do realize that there is so much going on in our everyday lives that it can be difficult to justify doing something for ourselves.   However, Now is exactly the time to catch your breath and treat yourself to an experience that you may have thought about and said "one day" or "maybe when I lose a couple pounds".   Sound familiar?  How about these, "I'm not a model !" or "I don't need anyone seeing me in my underwear." or "I'm shy."   Those are all well and good, if you like making excuses for not doing something wonderful for yourself.   Please !  Never let the fear of what someone else might think stop you from doing something for yourself.   BE BRAVE !

Let me tell you this, You are worth it and You are beautiful NOW !

It's impossible to describe the benefits you will experience without you actually being there.  Of course you'll have the beautiful images but there's so much more...  I've seen the transformation where my client is a little nervous and unsure about what to do in the beginning and after about 10-15 minutes she is a different person.  Definitely more confident and flowing with the experience.  It's a joy for me to see the change and also the reactions when they see their images and can't believe it's them.   I love it.

Don't just take my word for it, here are the words of one satisfied customer...

The experience was unique. I've never done a boudoir photoshoot before, so in the beginning I was a little nervous and self conscious. But, shortly after, I got the hang of it and magic happened. It was so much fun! I absolutely love the images. They are me at my natural, vulnerable, sexy state. They bring the moment to life.
I would recommend other women do a boudoir shoot at least once in their life to cherish the moment of her youth and beauty. It brings so much confidence and happiness within yourself. It's an important asset to have when growing older and our bodies changing in the process. It's a key reminder that our hearts were and will always be that young beautiful woman in that picture.

I look forward to hearing from you in the near future to discuss the possibilities. 

 

How to prepare and what to wear?

How to prepare and what to wear?

If you're curious about treating yourself to a Boudoir Session and want to know just what to do to get ready, here's a couple of the best videos I've found on advice to prepare.  They give some very helpful information.

 

I've noticed that pronouncing "Boudoir" can be a bit confusing, so this should help with that...

 

Why would you want to take pictures in your underwear?

Why would you want to take pictures in your underwear?

Being a boudoir photographer in Miami, I get the way a lot of people see this style of photography, as just pictures of women in lingerie and eventhough the results are beautiful and exhilarating, I understand how a boudoir session can be a bit intimidating. Truth is it can be easy to misunderstand the benefits of Boudoir without experiencing it for yourself.  Here are the words of someone who has experienced a session with me:

 -  I had a great experience shooting my boudoir photos. I had the chance to see the images of the pictures that were taken, and I couldn't believe my eyes of how beautiful they came out.  Almost couldn't believe it was me.  I would definitely encourage other women to have their boudoir images taken of themselves.  At first I was a little hesitant of what others might say, but then  I realized the reason why I wanted to take those photos to begin with.  I wanted to take those boudoir images solely for me to have. Time is something that not only doesn't stop for no one, but it surely doesn't wait for no one to pass you by neither.  I wanted to have a memory of the best stages of my life that I could look back at once I grow older.

 I think every women should have that.

I realize that there are many things happening in your day to day life, however, I hope that you will make or take the time to do something wonderful for yourself.

 

 

 

Intro...

Intro...

Let me begin with, Thank you for your time.   As this is my first entry, I'd like to introduce myself, give a little background and explain why I shoot boudoir.

My name is John Miller.  I was born in Detroit, where my passion for photography began.

I've been a member of the Army Reserves, the Army National Guard and the USMC, 9 years total service.

I worked at Chrysler for 6 years. Before moving to Miami in 2000.

I've shot many different subjects, looking for ways to service the needs of whomever needed photos and for whatever reason.  This was ok most of the time because I love taking pictures, I now have just a couple of areas that I focus on exclusively.  This is one.

I love Boudoir Photography because it helps improve the self-esteem and confidence of women while producing some beautiful images.  

In future posts I will provide tips and links to more information on preparation for and benefits of a Boudoir Session.
