Kansas City's Newest Lingerie Boutique Now Open!

So we did A THING!

We strongly advise our clients to bring at least 2-3 lingerie/looks/sets with them to their session and we started to notice a pattern. Online orders wouldn’t make it in time. Clients shopping in person only to be disappointed by what they found or lack thereof. Clients bringing in lingerie and not ending up liking the way it photographed. Online orders coming in and not fitting properly or receiving the wrong thing or damaged items or simply not liking on in person as much as they liked it on the online model. So many probs.

I always had the idea of owning a lingerie store in the back of my mind. A “one day” thing or a far away dream. Something that might never happen, but I finally started down the path and it all happened VERY quickly.

Indium Intimates became a reality.

So exciting!! We are now open in the heart of Waldo at 75th and Wornall. Open Tuesday-Sunday. We absolutely love making our clients feel beautiful. Stop in. I promise it’s worth it! Check out our Instagram Story or DM us if you’re looking for something specific!

She Has Arrived | Kansas City Photographer

This gem has been through so much and is still going through so much and I am so proud of her for doing this session! She put herself first, just for 1 day, to get back in touch with her feminine side and to celebrate her for her. Here is what she had to say…

Why boudoir? ”For ME! It takes some time and some “life” to figure out who you are... and maybe it took me a little more time and a little more life to get here. I wanted to capture and celebrate who I am as a woman. There isn’t much that I think is more beautiful and powerful than someone who is able to find the courage and strength to bravely be who they were meant to be. Especially after surviving the epic shit storms life can brew. There is so much beauty in femininity. I wanted to honor that part of who I am. It was a long road to get to this place, but now that I’m here... why not get photographic evidence! Besides when I’m 80 years old... I’m sure the grandkids will love seeing their grannies boudoir photo book on the coffee table!!”

Why Indium? “After reading the blog, reviews, stalking Instagram and Facebook for a good 6 months it was more and more evident that Traci is not only committed to giving ALL women an opportunity to see how beautiful and valuable they really are...she’s passionate about women being in touch with themselves. Her work is passionate, detailed and genuine. There’s absolutely nothing fake/trendy about what she does. The quality of her work is a testament to who she is.”

“Traci has really taken Boudoir photography to a whole different level... really there’s boudoir.... and then there’s Indium Boudoir”

Has anything changed since? “Being brave, and feminine is powerful... and sexy.... and if you can be all that and climb on a couch in a bodysuit...c’mon! 
I had some nerves like anyone else would. I was also REALLY excited about doing this. I had a funny little moment the next morning when I was getting dressed and I’m standing in my closet and I just stopped and had this thought of “you freakin did a boudoir shoot yesterday... you little bad ass!””

Anything you wish you would have done differently? “No. It was the best experience. Zero regrets and would do it again in a heartbeat. I can’t even imagine how anyone would feel uncomfortable doing a shoot with you. The attention to detail, patience, genuine kindness was so much more than I expected. There is absolutely no way anyone would ever walk out of that studio with less than the very best experience and images to prove it. 
It is clear in every single thing that Traci does that she is all in, no holding back, genuinely, and fiercely committed to you having the best session.”

Come As You Are | Kansas City Boudoir

Sometimes I hear people describe boudoir as a '“once in a life time experience”. It’s only once in a life time if you want it to be! This gem right here is a 2 timer and I’m hoping she’ll be back for a third some day. It’s never a bad thing to document your growth as a woman. There’s this preconceived notion looming over boudoir where women automatically think they need to be their best selves before they book. That’s a lot of fucking pressure. Why not just embrace yourself as you are? That’s what boudoir shoots are really about. Finally seeing the beauty that everyone around you sees when they look at you. You’re more than a number on a scale. You’re more than ‘just a mom’. Boudoir is an experience, but it’s also a tool that has proven time and time again to be a major confidence boost and a way to look back on the powerful woman you always have been.

“There’s so many reasons why I wanted to do another shoot! As a mother, business owner, wife, daughter, etc I feel like there’s so much pressure to be what society tells us to be, but we’re so much more than that! I’ve never felt more liberated as I have since turning 30. Women are told to be this way, don’t do this, don’t say that...so this shoot was breaking all these narratives. I’ve never been more proud that this body has carried a child for 9 months, this body alone fed a child for his first 6 months of life, I’m proud I can be both a mother but feel incredibly sexy and that I’m still my own person. I felt like a queen that day, and I’m so thankful I did another one! I’ll cherish these images forever. Never been more proud to be a woman. Girl power all the way.”

What made you choose Indium Boudoir? “This was an easy choice, Traci you are insanely talented and there’s literally no one else I’d trust to shoot these gorgeous images. I love what you stand for and what your business is built on, making women feel like gems and that’s exactly what I felt like leaving. The entire shoot Traci walks you through the entire process all while making you feel comfortable yet sexy. I can’t say enough good things about Indium and Traci. Also can we talk about that studio? Absolutely gorgeous in every way, hands down the best!”
