Couple’s Boudoir – Abbotsford
When you hear the words couple’s boudoir the picture that pops into most people’s minds is probably an erotic one. Two people intertwined in a passionate embrace sharing each other in every sense of the word. While that is a great way of documenting what you and your partner have together I’d like to show you another perspective. With Jessica’s Intimate couple’s boudoir experience it’s more about the connection, the intimate moments of love, laughing and vulnerability. It’s about getting lost in your partners eyes and connecting with them on a level that you don’t always get to share. When you get these still… perfect moments everything around you just seems to fade away. The images captured in those instances are the ones you will take with you. Her unique perspective and artfully edited black and white images will be something that is always treasured.
I’ve had the pleasure of taking part in one of these Intimate couple’s boudoir sessions. At first I was probably like most people, shy, awkward, nervous, but with Jessica that soon went away. She gained and kept my trust and while I felt a little silly at first, it didn’t take long for the camera to seem to disappear. It is a time, with the love of my life, that I will always hold on to. The first time I saw the images I knew I hadn’t been wrong to trust her. It actually made me catch my breath and I couldn’t speak at first. I remember thinking, as I looked through our moments, that these images showed how I felt about her better than I ever could express. It’s more than documenting what two people share during the act. It’s about showing those intimate moments that lead up. The shared laugher and joy of two people who love each other. The anticipation as your partner sits next to you and reaches out. It’s the excitement the moments before their lips touch your neck, or feeling your worries melt away as you embrace. In my case Jessica captured the raw moments in such an authentic manner that I could actually see myself being vulnerable in a way I never imagined. I couldn’t wait to share it with the world. I would do it again in a heartbeat and highly recommend that everyone should experience an intimate couple’s boudoir session at least once in their life. I left looking at myself and my partner with different eyes. Check out my session here
