Ask my parents and they will tell you that I’ve been able to strike up conversations with strangers since I was very young. And lucky for me, Kim was one of these strangers! I attended a photography ‘retreat’ of sorts in Marfa, Texas in February, and while we chatted in a random group of people one of the first nights of the event, I started talking to Kim (of course I complimented her on how gorgeous she is) and she was totally up for ‘modeling’ for a boudoir session with me in my hotel room!!
Believe it or not this is the first time I’ve done a boudoir session in a hotel room. Normally I get an icky feeling when considering shooting boudoir in a hotel but this hotel was magic!
Kim is also a photographer (no pressure there) and had never done a boudoir session or modeled before! And the best part is that she has a little baby bump in the photos because she and her hubby are expecting a baby!!
While I didn’t ask Kim to write a review on her experience, she did reply to the gallery of photos I sent her and said, “OH MY, thank you so much for documenting me during such a special, weird time. I’ll cherish these forever — thank you, thank you!!!”
**Side note, but not overly important: these photos aren’t retouched.**
Huge thanks to Kim for volunteering and making the session so much fun!! I LOVE photographing new people in new places.
