Some came for their boyfriends. Two came for their fiance’s one of which is deployed in Iraq. A couple came for a treat for themselves celebrating a special time in their lives. As a boudoir photographer in Raleigh, shooting a specialized brand what I’ve called Vintage Vixens, I realize the value of what I do as a photographic artist, how I’m impacting their lives and more importantly, what these clients do for me.
I had put a shout out in early January seeking my new Vixens to be and I had a nice handful of girls step forward. I love their stories, where they come from, & why they’re doing it. The reasons are great and different. However they all have one thing in common, nerves! I tell all of them that once Margo/Belloviso does her magic they’ll feel differently and the nerves are typically quelled within the first five minutes of shooting.
So below you’ll see Suzi, whose fiance is currently serving our country in Iraq. You’ll meet Tammy, whom you may remember from several months ago. She came back now the second time around to surprise her fiance for Valentine’s Day. There’s also Meagan & Shelly, young friends whom came together to surprise their boyfriends for Valentine’s Day. Saucy and vintage inspired Lisa an older vixen and absolutely gorgeous in her own right, just doing it for herself. And last, but not least, Mandy, a professed plus-size girl who is turning 30 and has a list of things she wants to accomplish and being a vixen was one of them!
I celebrate all of them for all of their own reasons. These boudoir sessions are always so special to me. I love the stories of the women that come before me, the reward is what I do for them and their significant others. I have a feeling I’ll be shooting Vintage Vixens for a long time!
