"...true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul..." Audrey Hepburn

April 06, 2016  •  1 Comment

A year ago, I not only opened my first "studio" Le Loft D'Artiste, but  fell back in love with Portraiture.  I loved capturing the beauty of the human face and telling each person's story through my pictures.  I especially love Women's portraiture, which eventually led me into my first experimental session of "boudoir."  However, I said to myself that there has to be a way to showcase the sexy side of a woman without showing too much of their "assets" and really gearing it towards the older more mature every day woman.  You know the PTA Mom; Business Woman; Educator by day, but wife/girlfriend/lover by night.  The over 40 woman who wanted to feel sexy, but also wanted to feel classy.  Not only something to show off to their husbands/boyfriends, but something they felt truly comfortable with sharing with their friends too if they wanted.  I truly believe that a woman's beauty is reflected in her soul and her sexiness comes from her confidence in herself.  So from this idea "Before Dawn" was born.   I loved the whole idea of giving a woman a session of makeup and hair and a morning of pampering while ending it in some beautiful pictures of themselves.  So the journey began, and after my first few Sessions, I knew that I wanted to incorporate the finer side of boudoir into what I had to offer clients.  It only made sense since it is similar to the portrait work I loved doing of women...but a tad bit sexier.

Below is a few pictures from a creative session that I did recently where I took a dark and edgy approach to it and threw in some fun along with sexiness and beauty.  Thank you to my model, Kerry Ann, and my makeup/hair artist Debra who helped tie my vision altogether with their beauty and talents.  If you want to see more, just pop over to my Boudoir Link and take a look around.


Peace and Love....  Donna
