This luxury boudoir photo shoot at The Driskill Hotel in Austin was exactly what Adrianna wanted.
Mom’s are the Rock
Adrianna is the mother to a child with special needs. Her daily routine does not allow for her to relax. She has to be her child’s best advocate in school, be attentive to any medical issues that can come about, while at the same time act as though everything will be alright.
Children have a remarkable ability of reading body language and mothers like Adrianna can’t flinch anytime life throws them a curveball.
In planning for our boudoir photo shoot Adrianna mentioned how tiring this can all be. She’d sometimes feel guilty if she did something for herself. For once she wanted someone to focus on her – to have someone who wouldn’t tell her she was beautiful but to show her.
Adrianna wanted to be shown she was beautiful and glamorous while allowing herself a breather in her day.
Boudoir Photo Shoot
It’s why I selected the Driskill Hotel in Austin, Texas.
I wanted for her to be in a setting that was far removed from her daily routine.
It took her awhile to settle in and relax.
After showing her several shots during the session it seemed as if she gave herself the okay to treat herself.
Believe What You See
Boudoir is one of those areas of photography that can’t be done with a camera phone.
It requires understanding angles, and light and shadow.
As a male photographer, the goal in my boudoir photo shoots is to help women come to an understanding of something that’s natural to all women. That quality is at the core of my vision as an artist.
What makes a woman beautiful is her ability to persevere, her resilience. Being able to conduct a boudoir photo shoot with this approach has enabled me to show Adrianna just that.
Women like her carry the world on their shoulders and do not allow themselves one moment of peace when so much depends on them. It is why the time for our photo shoot was so precious to Adrianna. She was able to reconnect with herself.
Being able to facilitate this journey is something that helps give my work a sense of purpose and drives me to want to work with women of all ages, shapes, and sizes.
Every woman has it in her to feel glamorous and sensual and strong, all at the same time.
And that, Adrianna is.
