ABOUT BOUDOIR BY EDUARDO
Eduardo Vega Colon
I decided to make boudoir my focus back in 2013 when a lifelong friend approached me for a session.
She was struggling in the aftermath of a breakup and was in need of affirmation. After our session, she understood what made her beautiful was not anything physical. It was resilience that came through her eyes and her body language. Because the photo shoot reassured her of her beauty and strength she was able to move on. My friend was able to come to a place of happiness and joy.
Body positivity and love for self
Since then, I have worked with women who have looked for that same reassurance.
Body positivity and self-love are everything for me. After moving to Houston in 2015, I have continued helping women on their journey to wellness. The boudoir pictures I take of them show everything they’ll ever need is already in them.
It's more than creating boudoir pictures.
IT'S MAGIC REALISM
What drives me.
I began taking pictures as a way of expressing joy in knowing how lucky I am to be alive.
To still be here in this beautiful world, among so many wonderful people. The immense gratitude for life and for the world shapes my vision and my approach to taking pictures. What may seem ordinary to others is so extraordinary and magical to me. I'm ready to create boudoir pictures for women who desire authenticity and emotion.
I can see it!
The sense of wonder I have for the world and for the people around me make it that I could see the miracle that’s in you. That one thing that makes you beautiful and unique.
My vision as an artist, who uses a camera as his medium, is best summed up by this line from a poem by the Sufi mystic, Rumi:
EVERY TREE AND PLANT IN THE MEADOW SEEMED TO BE DANCING
those which average eyes would see as fixed and still.
