Embracing The Journey | Kansas City Boudoir

Miss K is on the journey of IVF. She is a mama of 1, a wife, a girl boss business owner, and one inspiring woman. I'm so happy she chose to embrace her journey by signing up for a boudoir shoot mid-ivf. She actually thought she would have bruises from the injections and was still 100% into the shoot without Photoshop. We missed the bruises, but I hope her story inspires you to love yourself a little more just as you are.

"In the depth of an IVF fertility cycle would not be when most women would choose to do a boudoir shoot. After months of loss, hormones and feeling like a human pin cushion, I honestly can say that a boudoir shoot with Traci and her team was exactly what I needed at precisely the right time in life. Rather than simply powering through the struggle, I chose to embrace this time of extreme femininity in my life and fall in love with my body and its imperfections again. We women are so hard on ourselves - and I'm one of the worst! It was time to change my outlook from critical to loving and graceful and appreciative of all that my body is capable of doing, including fostering a human life. The experience was fun, uplifting and inspiring. I felt completely comfortable with Traci, she is extremely approachable and open and man is she fast at turning her final product! I would highly recommend Indium to anyone, any age, any stage of life."

"[Indium Boudoir had] the best boudoir photos I have ever seen. I followed her on instagram. And I preferred a female photographer."

"I think of myself as more beautiful than ever before, even though I know my body has had better stages in life, I feel more of the beauty that was always there on the inside as odd as that sounds."

Miss M totally slayed her session. She is so sweet, hilarious, and I am so happy she chose me for her boudoir experience! This is a great reminder that even though we love pleasing others and putting them first, we still need to pay attention to ourselves with self-love and care. I am certain self-love is a major key to happiness. Let's live our best lives, ladies! You are as important as the people around you. Don't forget that.

HER BEFORE THOUGHTS

"I’ve been dying to do one of your boudoir shoots, I stalk your page, and a lot of my girlfriends have came to you.. and they look BOMB!! With a busy nurse life and mom life, I just haven’t bit the bullet!! I have ZERO, I mean ZERO.. pictures of myself alone, because well I’ve taken on the roll of mom! I never do anything for myself anymore, so I feel like I need to get my Mojo back!! This would be to build me back up, show myself I still have it & show even moms can feel beautiful and sexy too!! You do amazing, and I love how you empower women!!!"

HER AFTER THOUGHTS

"I have always wanted to shoot with Traci, her work always has me in "AHH". I'm a mom of 2 and just wanted to feel beautiful and sexy again, and she did that for me!!"

"I chose Indium Boudoir because a lot of my friends have used her, then once I started following her on social media, I was obsessed. She made girls of every size look like bombshells and I could see confidence radiating from these women!!"

"Traci walked me through everything. Showed me what looked good. Not only was Traci amazing, but Mel the makeup artist was FANTASTIC!"

Why Do I Shoot Boudoir? | Kansas City Boudoir Photographer

WHY? Why do my clients choose me and why do I shoot boudoir?

Being the realest, I avoided photographing boudoir for years. I’ve been a photographer since 2007 and I didn’t have my first boudoir session until 2015. 8 years ugh *face palm*. If I could go back in time, I would. I always thought boudoir was “weird”. Not weird as in "ew why would someone want photos in their undies"...weird like "uhh why is the lighting and outfits and editing so bad?" I wasn’t inspired by it. I didn’t like the very few photos I saw of it. Cringey is probably the word. I was so sheltered in my early career because I worked for traditional studios so I honestly didn't see much of it. Our focus was weddings.

When I went out on my own, I really started exploring the whole photography industry and found worlds of talent. Then finally, I found a different kind of boudoir photographer and then I found even more after that. It sucks that it took me seeing other great boudoir work to realize it can be beautiful, but I wasn't ever interested in "fixing" boudoir. Like I said, I avoided it. So I am super happy I came across these amazing boudoir artists. Quickly, I'm talkin' days, I photographed a friend in my apartment. I instantly fell in love with the art and now it is my only type of photography I offer.

There are TOO MANY women in this world who have no idea how gorgeous they are. I’ve always felt this way. I’ve always seen the beauty in every woman since I was little. Now I have the tools to show someone else what I see. It’s such a gift. There are a lot of women too who think the only pretty photos of themselves are selfies. They don’t believe someone else can get a good photo of them. My work is nowhere near a selfie or a snapchat filter, but I promise it’s better.

My clients choose to hire me for my stellar reputation, my one-of-a-kind style, high quality of photography, and the amazing experience I offer. So come get nakey in front of my camera. You've got nothing to lose.
