In The Clouds

Well, I have been hanging on to these photos for awhile.  And, while I’ve shared them on social media, I haven’t yet put them on the blog but now is the time to unveil one of the newest creations in the studio!  It’s the cloud set – one of the most ethereal and creative sets I’ve ever put together.  When I set it all up, I took a step back and said aloud, “Well, damn, I want my photos taken on this set!”

It’s so ethereal.  It’s incredible magical.  It’s exquisite.

This is not Photoshop trickery.  This is the creative process.  Clouds, lights, special effects in camera, rainbow lights…all of it produced within the set, not in post production.

My past client came in to model for me after I had made a request in my private Facebook group looking for someone to help me.  She was a few weeks postpartum and she needed a day like this.  Her life has changed so much in the past few months that it was good to remind her of the fire that lives within her – she absolutely nailed it every step of the way.  When I brought out the rainbow lights, she started fangirling about it all!  It was a dream for both of us.

Here are a few photos from the session.  I can’t even believe this magic….

Feeling Confidence

This gorgeous beauty is a truly remarkable woman who has shared so much with me during her sessions.  One of her best traits:  She sees people, like truly sees people.  She listens intently, she remembers what you say, she has a supportive shoulder and a loving heart.  I adore her!
We did a live photo shoot in my Facebook group, and this is what she shared with the ladies after she had her photo reveal:

LISTEN up LADIES 💕✨
I hear you saying “I’ll schedule when I lose 10+ pounds”. I hear you saying “wow I wish I could look like her”.  I hear you saying “I wish I had that confidence” I see you supporting other women via comments.. Well guess what! YOU CAN DO THIS TOO!!

 Real talk. The time is now. I, much like everyone else in this group am your everyday girl.. I get pimples, bloated, and sometimes don’t wash my hair. As much as I’d love to tell you I look like this everyday, I do NOT. I LOOK this confident because of Maura’s incredible posing techniques, and FEEL this confident because of Maura’s outpouring love and encouragement.

pittsburgh boudoir photos, black scrappy lingerie posing on the carpetMaura is a angel on earth with the best gift of all- leaving people better than how she found them. She is the most comforting, welcoming, warm individual I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. At one point during my shoot I was sitting on the floor in front of her, hunched over, sitting unladylike, and mid conversation I said to her “I can’t believe this. Coming from the girl who ‘sucks in’ while walking through a store of strangers. I’m sitting here raw as could be, not a care in the world, just enjoying conversation. I could tell you all the reasons why you DESERVE to do this for yourself, but.. I’ll go with the one I find most important.

You deserve to truly see the beauty of yourself the way everyone else does. Not the dirty mirror in your bathroom, that’s hung at a bad angle, and has terrible lighting. Not the selfies on your phone that you try your best to hold the phone high enough for a better angle. And certainly not the image you paint of yourself when you scroll through the social media highlight reel.
I want to see this be you. I want to see you shine on this page, and have the confidence Maura is trained to instill in you like every girl posted in this group. If you’re still reading this, I appreciate you. I hope you really consider doing this. Today I had my viewing from my second annual shoot with Maura. I couldn’t help but get on here with some more pictures, and all the feels. If anyone has any questions about my experience, I’d love to hear from you!

More beautiful than ever before

The third time is the charm for this amazing woman!  Her #ChickClique #SuperPOWER is PHOENIX.  And that’s exactly what she is!  The power, confidence and ownership she has over her life is going to serve her well!

Here’s what she shared in my private boudoir group on Facebook:

When I booked my 3rd shoot in March I knew I was doing it just for me. I wasn’t sure why. I just knew. I saw those wings and knew I had to add them. Again, not sure why but I just knew. I knew it had to be done partially outside. That I know, because I love being outside! And I knew that I had to let Maura do all of the styling this time.
Little did I know that my world was about to implode. Never would I have imagined that I would be divorced after 22 years of marriage by the time my shoot happened in Sept.
Once that happened though, I knew this shoot was exactly what I needed! This shoot was confirmation that I am strong and beautiful and I can do this thing called life just for me!
And I then knew those wings would be perfect for a PHOENIX rising from the ashes!
It was an absolutely AMAZING day from start to finish, as any day spent with Maura and her camera turns out to be.
“And just as the Phoenix
rose from the ashes,
she too will rise.
Returning from the flames,
clothed in nothing but her strength
More beautiful than ever before”

Here’s what she sent me about her session:
Why did you decide to invest in a boudoir photo shoot?  At the time I booked my life was in a particularly rough spot. As I had already done 2 personal sessions and been involved in a few group shoots, I knew that some Maura-therapy certainly couldn’t hurt and would most likely be just what I needed.

How did you feel about yourself before your photo shoot?  Before my shoot I had just gone through divorce and was really just learning to find myself. I was learning just how strong I really am, inside and out.

How did you feel about yourself after your photo shoot?  After my shoot I felt strong, sexy and unstoppable! The day with Maura confirmed everything I was already learning about me! I was empowered! I was fierce and free to be me without worry !

Describe your session in 3 words?  fun, fire, freedom

What was your favorite part of the boudoir photo shoot?  My favorite part, as always, is spending time with Maura. She is more than just the photographer. She provides the most amazing experience from start to finish!

What value do you think a boudoir session brings to your life and the community of women you support? I cannot put a value on this experience! It is truly priceless!

What would you say to other women who are considering a boudoir photo shoot?  Don’t hesitate! Make the leap. Make the investment in you! You will not regret it!

Red Fantasy Wings

March is women’s history month. You typically hear the stories of those women who have paved the way for where we are now. Mostly famous women we all know by now.
But, the history of each and every woman is worthy of being shared. Your story, your strength, your qualities and attributes … they are all admirable and should receive recognition and praise.
I have decided that this month I will share about the special women in my life, those who have had an impact on my history, my life, my journey. I am always one to make sure people know how I feel about them, and I will use this month to continue to do so.
On my personal FB page, I will be writing about the women who’ve been a force in my life. Continuing to uplift and encourage women will always be at the core of my being. I encourage you to tell the women in your life how special they are!
**
I now get to introduce you to the new RED WINGS!
Awhile back, I had this idea for a snow session, and it was a waiting game for some good snow that sticks on the trees.
Then I purchased the red wings, and thought to myself – well, that might just be a killer combination!
And, as any creative knows, once an idea comes into your mind that’s all you can think about until you get your vision to come to life.
On the perfect winter day, this beauty ventured with me into the cold snow, and this magic happened!
Enjoy all this boudoir goddess goodness (maybe I should trademark that, hahaha)

Embarking On A Journey

My clients are THE MOST AMAZING WOMEN ON THE PLANET!!!!!!!!

Here’s what this beauty posted about her session in my private Facebook group (join us):

Okay so where to start, where to start.
A little backstory on me, this was not my very first boudoir shoot – I did one once before several years ago. The photographer did them as a one-day special so there were multiple shoots that were done in one day. While they did get some nice pics it was very wham, bam, thank you ma’am. I left the day with some good shots but it wasn’t something that I felt that I needed to do again, I mean how many pics in my panties do I really need.
Then I found the Pics By Chicks Photography Self Love Group.
And I joined.
And I waited.
I sat by the sidelines for one year, two years, and I watched and read.
I watched woman after woman talk about embarking on a journey of self love and empowerment and acceptance and growth.
And a nagging little feeling began to grow.
I wanted to be beautiful, accepted, empowered. I wanted someone to hoot and holler for me. And most of all I wanted to do it for me and only me.
So I took a breath and took a chance.

Can I be honest, it exceeded even my wildest expectations. Maura did my styling and it was incredible. I wouldn’t have ever put any of the pieces that she chose on my body. I mean, they were sexy pieces, they weren’t for someone built like me. Then I slipped them on and I couldn’t believe it – they were for me. They hugged my curves and with one approving hoot from Maura I was sold on every one. And then at the viewing, I couldn’t believe that it was me. It was a whole side of me that I have never seen, let alone felt.
This was not just a photo shoot. It was an event, an adventure. This has been one of the most freeing moments of my life. It allowed me to take a step on a journey of self love, acceptance and growth. It gave me a chance to glimpse myself though the eyes of Maura. And you know what, I like what I see. There aren’t words enough to thank you Maura – because I now have the privilege to know you, I am now changed, for good.

Here’s what she sent me about her session:
1) Why did you decide to invest in a boudoir photo shoot?  I had previously done one before and while it was nice and I got some great pics it was quick and I felt like I did it for the wrong reasons. I was doing that one for a gift for my hubby but this time, this was for me. This was for me to feel beautiful and empowered and for me to step out of the clothes I hide behind and for me to feel sexy. It had been on my bucket list to do again for quite a while and finally I stopped making excuses and took a breath and took a leap and went for it; there would be no perfect tomorrow to wait for – today was the time to own it.

2) How did you feel about yourself before your photo shoot?  I was so excited about it. Maura doing the styling seriously relieved the biggest pressure that I felt on my first go round, (which was what the ever loving goats do I wear) and with that aside I really just geared up to have an amazing day. For me their were moments when I would glance at myself in the mirror and like I had a little secret with myself. It was like I knew something about me that not everyone gets to see and it was a heck of a confidence boost.

3) How did you feel about yourself after your photo shoot?  So the day of my shoot was absolutely incredible and coming off of it was liking walking on cloud nine. I felt like I had gotten to bring out a side of myself that the world doesn’t see. Maura is so incredibly vocal and encouraging and positive that there is no way to not start to see yourself through that lens too and for it to spill forward into your life after. Afterwards, I would catch myself checking out my own butt in the mirror at work and just giving myself a second to smile and remember.

4) Describe your session in 3 words?  Empowering Transforming Renewing

5) What was your favorite part of the boudoir photo shoot?  Okay so my absolute favorite part was when Maura handed me the outfits for the first time. Maura styled my shoot (highly, highly recommend it) and it was this mix of exciting and a little scary to see what she had picked and to see that first glimpse of how she could see me in ways that I couldn’t see myself yet. It was like that moment when you first get to see the presents under the tree and you don’t know exactly what will happen when you open them but you are flush with adrenaline and bubbling with excitement.

6) What value do you think a boudoir session brings to your life and the community of women you support? I think that it truly is one of the most empowering things I have ever done. And it is truly for every woman. Every single woman is beautiful and powerful and creative and authentic and I think that boudoir gives every woman a chance to connect with that awesome woman inside. I also believe that it is incredibly healing to see yourself through the lens of someone who is seeing you in a positive light of love and acceptance and beauty and that is exactly what Maura does.

7) What would you say to other women who are considering a boudoir photo shoot?  Do it. Now. There is no way to ever use words to explain truly how incredible an experience it was. There will always be reasons and goals and excuses and tomorrow’s and in the end none of them matter. You are beautiful and powerful and worthy today so allow yourself to take the leap and experience really seeing yourself in that light. It is an investment in yourself and the best present that you will ever give to yourself.
