It all started eight years ago, when professional photographer Daysy started thinking beyond weddings and family events. She had always been a passionate advocate for raising women's self confidence and esteem. As a photographer, Daysy had witnessed too many women who were unhappy with the way they looked and felt about themselves. She wanted to do something to help them love themselves, but what? Daysy tried all sorts of different types photography, including glamour shots and boudoir. Daysy wanted to practice more boudoir photography, but where could she find a woman willing to be her guinea pig? The answer was Kelly, who was a friend of a friend and willing to do all the poses and sessions Daysy needed to hone her craft. During this intense experience, Daysy fell in love with Boudoir photography, and she and Kelly became close friends.

Once again, Kelly fell in love with the photos and was able to see for herself how truly gorgeous she is. Daysy was excited to offer her services to other women, so she started the VIP [...]

Meet Boudoir Bombshell Susan! “BE YOUR OWN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL” SERIES

We are so excited to welcome hottie Susan to the elite Boudoir Bombshell Club! Susan isn't new to glamour photoshoots--in fact, she had a "somewhat" boudoir-style photo session when she was in her twenties. Susan ran across those photos recently and laughed at her "big 80's hair." Another difference between her early experience and the photoshoot with Daysy? That first shoot was "definitely not as risque" as her shoot with Daysy. Ooh-lah-lah! Susan confessed that she had been feeling down about her menopausal body and was looking for something she could do to feel excited about again. Another reason was as a gift to her husband. But the coolest reason, for Susan? "My mom, who passed away in a car accident in 1999, had done a boudoir shoot when she was about the same age as me."   How awesome is that, to have side-by-side boudoir photos? Susan loves the similarity of her headshots and those of her mom. Let's talk about the shoot. How was your experience? At first, Susan was definitely nervous about being scantily clad in front of someone other than her husband! Daysy quickly put her at ease, however, and soon Susan forgot about being nervous and [...]
