Intimate Indoor Portrait Session with Ms. M: Body-Positive Portrait & Boudoir Photography in Seattle, WA

These images were captured before March 2020, and were not taken during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Content note: Contains artistic nudity

I’ve started calling this kind of session a series of intimate portraits: not necessarily the intentional sexiness of boudoir, more vulnerable than a regular portrait session. An exploration of the body in a relaxed setting, guided but free to move in ways that feel good. This is such a good way to capture your body at a moment in time and connect what you feel physically in your body to what you see in the mirror.

These sessions are of course open to any (a)gender and body size, like all my sessions. They may involve full or partial nudity, like the images here, to your comfort level.

For Ms. M’s session, we did some exploring around sleep and self care. What do those things look like in a larger body? Where is the beauty? Where is the vulnerability? We incorporated elements of Ms. M’s real life as well, like her neck brace, favorite book and sketchbook.
