That since day one, she's already had everything she needs within herself. It's the world that convinced her she did not."
Hanalani Boudoir - Capturing the Daringly Feminine
I love capturing through my lens women of all ages, shapes, sizes, colors, etc., because I believe that femininity and her inherent power are one of the most unique, mystical, and important parts of the universe.
If I had to pick a very favorite part of the human body, it would be the eyes… always. They are full of light, mystery, depth, secrets, truths, life. They tell stories that cannot be hidden. As you look through my work, you will see that I like to make the eyes a central part of my portraits. When I create a portrait, I want the eyes to captivate; to draw you in and tell you a story that only the two of you can share.
I don't have to tell you how difficult it is to live in our society with a strong and healthy sense of beauty and self-worth because, if you are a woman, you already know. Mixed in with the cacophony of negative voices in our society and media, we occasionally hear voices saying the opposite… “everyone is beautiful… beauty is more than skin deep…" etc, but very few of us actually believe it. As a woman myself, I am intimately familiar with this struggle to find and experience value in a world that is so good at demeaning it. I am passionate about boudoir photography because I am passionate about women, and beauty, and instilling an understanding and embracing of self-worth, beauty, and empowerment in every single woman who comes into focus in front of my lens.
Often, a boudoir session is sought out to be a special gift for a boyfriend or husband, but to every session, I bring a deeper purpose… regardless of who the “gift” is meant to be for, my desire is for the woman being photographed to receive a gift she may have never even been seeking when scheduling the session… a gift of seeing, maybe for the first time or maybe in a new light, her exquisite, unique, inherent, one-of-a-kind beauty, and to embrace that and let the knowledge of it empower and saturate every aspect of her life. You are beautiful. You have value. You carry a divine, mystical, sensual feminine power that can change the world, starting in your small corner of it.
"Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women." -Maya Angelou
