Oh Mama! | Oklahoma Maternity Boudoir Photographer

I love photographing maternity boudoir...it is just so special. I particularly LOVED photographing Ms. J. We bonded right away and found ourselves chatting for hours past the photo session and the viewing appointment. We have so much in common and I just know we are going to cross paths again. Maybe a playdate with our kids or maybe a creative shoot where she has promised to build me a an elaborate set. :) I asked Ms. J about her experience at Modern Muse and here is what she had to say:

My favorite part about the whole process was probably feeling like a gained a relationship with you in the sense of, you gave really great direction so I get really confident and comfortable. There was absolutely no awkwardness. It get very organic and I loved having that experience.

I felt extremely comfortable, there was no awkwardness and the pictures and the whole experience turned out better than what I had envisioned in my head.

I honestly didn’t have a big fear about taking these pictures. I had researched what style of maternity photo I wanted. I felt like I was in really good hands.

Super Sexy Studio Set | Oklahoma Boudoir Photography

If you know me....you know I change my mind no less than 100 times a day. I guess that is my over-creative brain working. Many times my ideas are total flops and every once in a while I totally nail it. (Its all about to keep trying, right?) Enter our new dark studio set which is a total home run. I honestly can't believe I have been in that studio for 4 years and never noticed the light and potential on that side of the room. The dark gray walls look so soft (almost milky) and just oooze sensuality. I added a gray tufted bed, charcoal linenes and dark drapes. And I am dying over that yummy light...it just skims the body in all the right places. I invited Ms. J over for some test shots last week and I am super stoked on the results.

Outside Her Comfort Zone | Oklahoma Boudoir Photography

Hooray for repeat clients! I have had the pleasure of having several "second time around" clients in the studio lately and I am loving it! Ms. K is so amazing and we share so much in common. We chatted about our kids, vegan diets and her amazing husband and friends. Like long lost girlfriends just catching up. Sometimes I pinch myself that this is actually my job. I get to hang out with super cool women and take beautiful images of them. So please enjoy some of my favorites from Ms. K's session and her what she had to say about her experience.

I think my greatest fear before my shoot was: “What if I end up looking foolish?”. I know I am not the only woman who doesn’t mind just blending into the background instead of letting myself stand out and shine. But instead, the out come of doing this not once but twice is that it has helped me stop second guessing myself when insecurities rise. You will never know what you are capable of unless you just take a leap of faith and try something out of your comfort zone.

I think the whole process is fun, relaxing, and allows you to slow down for a couple of hours and be the main focus.

If there is one thing I would tell anyone considering doing a photo shoot with Christie is that it will totally impact the way that you look at yourself. I think we often forget I take the time to do something for ourselves that just makes us feel beautiful. Weather you are doing this as a gift for your loved one or for yourself I encourage you to let yourself give into the experience and just have fun with it.

The Second Time Around With Ms. J | Oklahoma Boudoir

Photographing clients the second time around is simply the best. It feels like old girlfriends getting together. We catch up, laugh, talk about our kids, favorite tv shows and play dress up. I recently photographed Ms. J the second time and it was amazing. I love that she brings clothing pieces in addition to her lingerie (she wore a little black dress in her last shoot). We just adore Janelle and think she is so stunning! Here entire session will be broken up into two different posts and we will be leading off with her Gorgeous Light sets. Listen to what Janelle had to say about her Modern Muse experience.

 

I previously had boudoir photos done with a different photographer. The shoot felt forced and uncomfortable. It took months to see proofs and more months before I received my product. When I finally received my product, disappointed was an understatement. My biggest fear was this experience turning out like last time. My experience with Christie has been the total opposite. Ashley is a magician with hair and makeup. The shoot was relaxed and Christie was amazing. I felt at ease. With Christie’s direction the photos are nothing short of spectacular … AND they were available for viewing within a few days.”

My favorite part of the boudoir session was actually posing for the pictures. The poses have a way of making you feel your best and helped get me into the moment of feeling sexy. I also really liked that I was not rushed at all. There was plenty of time allowed for each outfit and that out me at ease. The whole session was pretty awesome!

Getting pampered with hair and make-up and then getting all dressed up really made me feel like a million bucks. The whole experience was relaxing yet exciting. Christie and the make-up/hair artist are awesome, easy and comfortable to work with, and seem to really love what they do!

Acts of Acceptance and Self Love | Oklahoma Boudoir

The moment Ms. C walked into our studio I fell in love with her and her spirit. She, on the other-hand, was nervous and very open about all of her insecurities. I was immediately drawn to her face and a certain connection in her eyes. I just couldn't see any of the things that were causing her so much self-doubt. Once we got into hair and make-up I quickly learned we had a very big thing in common. We were both single mothers. Not just single parents, but the only parent. I know what kind of struggle that is and know that it can also add to a loss in your self-esteem. Ms. C had triumphed over many hurdles before she came to see me, but one of the biggest was lying ahead. Was she capable of looking and feeling beautiful? Would she love her images? Or would she fall back into the comfortable yet painful state of self-doubt. Below you will get to hear how the experience was for her and how she felt about her images.


I signed up for the session on a last minute impulse, out of desperation to find anything to latch on to that could help pull me out of the emotional difficulties I was having. I feared that it wouldn’t give me the results I was looking for, to be able to feel and see that there is some beauty left to me and that instead, it would just prove to me all the things that I’ve been told I am, and that I believed I was.
My fear did not come true, the experience itself was amazing, I had never felt so uplifted or encouraged to embrace who I am physically and emotionally. That day, during my first photo shoot was the first time I had felt completely at peace in many years. I left feeling great, not knowing what my pictures would look like and not caring at that moment because I just wanted to enjoy the state of happiness and acceptance I had received from Christie and her coworkers. My confidence that day was through the roof!!!

It was the emotional response I got during the posing and photo shoot. She makes it so easy for you to be comfortable and not worry about if you’re doing it right or not. For the first time in a long time I actually felt beautiful, sexy and at peace. I didn’t have the self-hatred for myself bouncing around my head, not once did I think about my past and the reasons why I was damaged. I didn’t think about stresses of work, home or in my life in general. I didn’t care that I wasn’t the size society tells us we should be, I felt amazingly beautiful and at that moment no one could have brought me down. I had forgotten how to love myself, or what loving yourself and being at peace really felt like and thanks to Christie and the other amazing girls I have finally started to mend what’s been broken for so long.

When I received my first photos, I immediately started what I always would and instead of looking at the whole picture, I sat there and cried because I only saw the hatred and disgust I had for myself. I wouldn’t allow myself to believe that I could ever be beautiful because of how I’ve always been told differently. Until I showed the pictures to the select few who knew I was going to do the shoot. All of them were telling me how amazing the pictures were and how beautiful I was, and how I needed to stop searching for things to obsess over and just look at the WHOLE picture, to look at all of me. Every day for a week I would pull up one of my photos and just sit in front of my computer and stare at it determined to see myself differently. Each day the urge to pick myself apart got a little easier and easier until I finally could just look at the image without wanting to cry.

ANNNNNNNNND I was blown away….I couldn’t believe that the images I was looking at were the same ones I had looked at every day for a week, or that is was me. I saw myself in the way that others had, and damnit I deserved too feel good about myself for once. Christy gave me back a part of myself that I will forever be thankful for. She not only allows us to see how beautiful and sexy we all can be but she helps us to realize that we are ALL beautiful. No matter what size or shape we are and that’s something a lot of us forget about ourselves.

This experience is something that every woman should try, even if you aren’t seeking them for help to love yourself again, or have a significant other to take them for. Just do it for yourself, we all need reminders of how beautiful we are, and how others really see us. Christie has an amazing gift, the photos she takes are absolutely breathtaking. Not only that she makes the whole session comfortable and guides you through every step of the way. So even if you are afraid because you’ve never done it, don’t worry she will have you looking and feeling like a pro! Not only do you get to see yourself for how gorgeous you really are, but you get to meet some of the most caring, uplifting and just hands down amazing women during your experience with Christie and her co workers.

Fierce AF | Oklahoma Boudoir Studio

I am finally getting around to blogging one of the first boudoir sessions I photographed in the new "Dark" space. This session was everything that fills my soul as an artist and more. Ms. L is just one of the types of women...and she is fierce AF. When she took out her outfit options...I squealed like a giddy school girl. Everything was so fashion forward and fit like a glove. But as much as I loved her outfits, my favorites were the tasteful topless images. Something I have been doing more and more of.  So without further ado...here is Ms. L. Please enjoy and leave a comment below if you are so inclined.

Simply Dark and Daring {Oklahoma Boudoir Photography}

Welcome to our new boudoir shooting space...so perfect for our Dark & Daring sessions. The light is simply delicious! This space is in the same building as our current studio and is the complete opposite of the bright, feminine big sister. Outfitted with moody lighting and dark wood floors...it is the perfect space to create a moody vibe. I love the simplicity of the space and how the light just kisses the body. Stay tuned for more!

Tribal Vibe | What To Wear Boudoir Session

Storybook Bride | Oklahoma Boudoir Photographer

Ms. K came in to a session with us as a groom's gift for her fiance. She was a blast to photograph and was a natural when the session started. I thought she looked like a modern Snow White with her raven hair and porcelain skin. I loved the white lingerie with lace robe she choose for her first outfit. The detail looks amazing next to her dark hair and vibrant lip. For the second outfit, we decided on the (client favorite) white sheet set. So crisp and clean....and a perfect bridal look. 

My biggest fear was that I would go in and be too nervous to open up and be myself. I feel like the exact opposite happened! I was almost instantly comfortable and had a blast the entire time! You were so friendly and warm is was impossible to not feel the same.

Here is what she had to say about encouraging her friends to do their own session.

I would tell them that I feel like this is something they would have zero regrets doing. I’m in love with every single image and I can’t wait to look back at these in 30 years and remember the time I looked like that. I really couldn’t be happier with the entire experience and it is something I will definitely be doing more than once!

Ashley Angel Heats It Up

Well, I am getting all settled in the new studio space and I am LOVING it! The light is everything I hoped for and exactly the direction I want the style of images to take. I invited the beautiful Ashley Angel over for a session to demonstrate what a boudoir session in the new space would look like. Here are a few examples from the session. Enjoy!

Here's To New Beginnings {Oklahoma Boudoir Photography}

Greetings all! Well, it has taken me a bit to finally put this in words and send it into the universe...so here it goes. After much thought I have decided to move out of my wonderful space that has been my magical boudoir home for almost 4 years. It was so hard to finally put in the notice to terminate my lease. That space means a lot and has really helped define my style. In that space I have created some of my best work to date, met so many amazing clients I consider friends, collaborated with the most talented models and won some international awards. And it is my little piece of heaven...my zen. But, like any artist, I have to stretch my wings and chase new ideas. And that little space is just not enough to hold all of the creativity I want to pursue. So where will I end up? Right back where I first started...a studio in my private residence. In my home the scenarios and looks are unlimited, more luxurious, floor to ceiling windows and plans for a dedicated outdoor space with a clawfoot tub. It is something I have been dreaming of for years. And the light....oh the light. It is the exact reason I bought my home in the first place. I will share more details on the new space as it develops. But for now I will be shooting sessions in the current studio until December 31st. And as a huge thank you to all of my past clients, fans, supporters and VIP's....I will be offering a very special package session until the end of the year. Make sure you sign up for the newsletter to receive the offer. 

Sincerely,

Christie

Little Sahara Outdoor Boudoir Session

I am so excited to share these images of Ms. J's outdoor boudoir session taken at Little Sahara Sand Dunes in Oklahoma. We traveled just over two hours from Oklahoma City but it was TOTALLY worth it. Little Sahara has been on my list to shoot for a a few years and I just knew Ms. J was the perfect person for it! We styled her with a nude lingerie set, boho lace coverup and statement jewelry for a perfect Desert Rose look. We battled high winds (25-30 mph OMG), harsh sun, off road vehicles, possible snakes and I even had a sprained ankle. Try walking in deep sand with heavy gear and a sprained ankle. But Ms. J and I handled it like pros and I couldn't be happier with the images. They far exceeded my expectations of what this location could be and I have a serious desire to shoot more outdoor boudoir. I want to especially thank Ms. J for her amazing spirit, beauty and the openness to entertain my crazy idea. So, I hope you enjoy....I know we did!
