Hello & Welcome!
I'm Stephanie, your photographer at Brooklyn Boudoir. To me, boudoir photography is about WAY more than just physical beauty; it's about confidence & freedom -- the ability to step outside your comfort zone, be brave, and connect with your sensuality, which is powerful and oh-so-important for us women! There's nothing like feeling sexy in your own skin -- when you do, you truly feel as if you can take on the world! So while a boudoir session can make a great gift for your loved one, it is more importantly a great gift you can give to YOURSELF! With this in mind, I encourage all women to embrace their unique femininity and celebrate it.
My mission is to make women feel FANTASTIC about themselves though a first-class photo shoot experience -- to help them remember the fierce, fabulous, sexy, woman within them, regardless of age, weight or relationship status, and I am really good at it! I strive to redefine "traditional" (read: cheesy) boudoir photography and create artful, modern portraits in a safe, judgement-free environment. I aim to capture the essence of a woman's beauty & personality while giving each woman I photograph an experience that is transformative, sexy, adventurous, and fun. These are not cookie-cutter photos -- I see every woman for their unique self and pride myself on providing a bespoke experience for all of my clients so that the photos truly reflect YOU.
I'm a city girl, born & raised in Brooklyn, NY. I'm a new(ish) mom to a spunky little girl, love to see the world, and have always fancied the road less-traveled. I believe in saying yes over saying no, and that a bit of bravery can lead to some unforgettable adventures. To me, every woman -- of every age and size -- is inspiring & deserves to feel beautiful.
The marriage of portraiture, sensuality, and *Girl Power* makes boudoir photography a perfect fit for me. I genuinely love connecting with different women, learning their stories (ALL of which are important), pampering them with a few hours of "me" time, and giving them an opportunity to feel sexy. I want my clients to walk away from their boudoir session with me feeling fearless, fierce, and empowered by accepting themselves as they are... and to carry those feelings with them always. It's a tall order, and I feel my work is truly important.
A member of the Association of International Boudoir Photographers, photography has been a passion of mine since embarking on a daily self-portrait project in 2007. I am constantly studying and working to improve my craft - you can watch me taking some self portraits in this film by Verso:
I have studied under some of the country's top boudoir photographers, including a mentorship with Kara Marie Trombetta, a maternity masterclass with Lola Melani and a start up class with published boudoir educator Christa Meola. In addition to boudoir photography, I love coffee, film, chocolate and wine (but really, who doesn't?), and have been know to start impromptu dance parties around Brooklyn. I have an absurdly large collection of jeans, black jumpsuits, vintage cameras & ex-boyfriends. I am available for boudoir, maternity shoots, motherhood portraits, editorial work, fine art commissions and modern headshots. You can find some of my other work, including travel photography, holgas, and more portraits (of men, even!) at expresstrainphoto.tumblr.com
