Why Boudoir? | Kansas City

Most women think you need a reason to book a boudoir session and the most common reason is to gift to their significant other. Surprise: most of my clients are single looking for a little confidence boost and an unforgettable experience. Getting glammed up and feeling like a celeb all day? Who would say no to that? I can't begin to tell you how much fun it is and how difficult it is to choose a favorite photo because you will love them all!

I'm not saying you need to be single or in a relationship to book. I'm telling you that you are worth it and can book because you WANT a boudoir session. It's all about being empowered and feeling like an absolute queen.

How gorg is this gem?! She booked a session to gift to her girlfriend for her birthday. She chose the ever popular fine art album. I'm going to assume her girlfriend loved it and handed this gem a Best Girlfriend Ever Award.

Boudoir Age Requirements | Kansas City

What is the age requirement for a boudoir session? How old do you have to be for this amazing experience and when are you out of time? You must legally be 18 years old, although I really prefer working with 21 and older. To answer the latter, no age is too old. I have yet to photograph anyone in their 60s or older, but I'd love to do it! I bet you'd never guess this gem's age..and no, I won't give it away. A woman's age is only her secret to share.

New Boudoir Studio Space in the West Bottoms | Kansas City

If you've been following along on my Instagram or you are apart of the Indium Gems FB group, you already know I've moved studio spaces! 

Previously, my studio was based in my home in Grain Valley. My photographer friend, Jesse, and I were casually looking for a space to rent, but we were super picky. I honestly thought it'd be a few months before we found something, but within a couple weeks, we found this space & we both had all the heart eyes. We signed the lease the very next morning. We have two rooms that are next door to one another so yes, we do share two spaces. However, we do not plan on ever scheduling two clients at once so it won't feel like a shared space.

Since I have a new studio space, staying in the Grain Valley house doesn't make a lot of sense so Daniel & I have decided to sell the house. We listed it last week and it sold that same day. We are so excited to live and work in the city! 

Here are some of my favorites from my first session at the new studio. All of these outfits are a part of the Gem Client Closet!
Wall Tapestry: Whisker Row
Necklace: Opal and Gold
