Hot Mama | Kansas City Boudoir

Hot Mama | Kansas City Boudoir

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!!"

"I feel so much more comfortable in my skin, and feel like I have the "HOT MOM" thing totally back!! She raised my confidence more than I could ever repay her!"

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

8 Myths About Boudoir Photography

  1. You have to be model material.
    Nope. What even is model material? Size 0? Size 22? You don't have to be anything but yourself to have boudoir photos done!
  2. Boudoir is not for pregnant women.
    Say what?! Pregnancy is gorgeous. On average, women are pregnant 2 times their whole life. You deserve beautiful photos revealing that baby belly! It won't be that way forever.
  3. You have to be gifting boudoir photos in order to need a boudoir shoot.
    False. Believe it or not, most of my clients are single ladies. There are quite a few who used it as a gift (wedding, anniversary, birthday), but most come in for the experience for themselves. Treat yoself! You don't need a reason other than "I want to."
  4. You should only get boudoir photos done once in a lifetime.
    My boudoir shoots are so fun, you'll want to do them year after year. You change as does your looks and mindset. There is no shame in having boudoir done as often as you want!
  5. I can't do boudoir. I'm not sexy.
    It's my job to pose you to bring out that inner sexy model in you. I give you direction every minute of our shoot. It's all about the hands, hair, and hips. Plus, not every photo will be sexy! Some are more flirty and most are simply gorgeous.
  6. Boudoir photos are not for moms.
    Moms are my favorite clients! They're usually the ones that need it most. It's nice to have a few hours out of one day where it's all about getting taken care of instead of taking care of someone else. You get to look back on these photos anytime to see the gorgeous sexy you that's always in there somewhere.
  7. You need to have lingerie for a boudoir shoot.
    Not quite. You don't have to wear any lingerie at all. A baggy sweater with boy shorts and thigh high socks is one of my fav looks to photograph. The white sheet comes in at a close second.
  8. I can't afford this.
    Wrong. Anything you want in life, you can have. It's all about working towards it. You shouldn't think "I can't." You should think, "How can I?" That goes for anything in life. You're worth it! Invest in yourself. Treat yourself.

Indium Boudoir New Studio Space

As you may have heard, I am in a new location! Previously, Indium Boudoir was based out of my apartment, but we bought a house! I've basically converted every room into a shooting space. It's in Grain Valley, right outside of Blue Springs, only 30 minutes from Kansas City. I've got more space, more options, but the same style and light. If you're still on the fence about booking this summer, stop by to meet me at the Just For Her Event! Booth 1209. I'll have samples, surprises, and Gem Bags for the first 10 girls who book!! I can't wait to meet you! Plus, there will be other awesome shops & services there as well!
