Negative self-image can be a pervasive and damaging force in our lives. It can hold us back from pursuing our goals and dreams, and it can cause us to doubt ourselves and our abilities. But it’s important to remember that it’s never too late to unlearning negative self-image and to start building a positive and […]

Unlearning Negative Self-Image: Building a Healthier Relationship with Yourself

Maryland Boudoir Photographer, The Empowered Woman

I was talking with my mentor early last week, when it dawned on me. This wasn’t an option, it was a calling. An unshakable feeling down to the very last cell in my body that I had to share my passion for helping women realize how beautiful and powerful they are. Far too many women […]

Pour Into Yourself | Maryland Boudoir

A boudoir photoshoot with us is not about lingerie, being naked, booty shots, or making you feel ‘exposed.’  It’s a lot about joy—true, raw, un-bound joy.  It’s about finding it, dancing with it, letting it flood through the cracks.   It’s about not taking anything too seriously–it’s about celebrating exactly who you are, in this moment.  […]

When I opened the doors to my boudoir business, I figured I’d play with poses and watch my clients live their best lives in gorgeous hair/makeup…but I never considered this would mean anything deeper than that. The women who came in to the studio would get in the chair would be so nervous that they […]

Perfection? No such thing. | Annapolis Boudoir

Dark and moody boudoir photographer

I used to feel sad about never receiving all the things I longed for until I started giving them to myself. Acknowledgment, acceptance, love, forgiveness, encouragement, attention, time and peace of mind. There is more power in that than you realize–give these things to yourself first before looking to others.

When I was 18 (oh so many moons ago), I started a blog called “Memoirs of an Army Brat” I would chronicle my daily thoughts and weekly adventures which, at that time, were plenty as I was already living on my own. From time to time, I also wrote about how I felt I was […]

Confidence doesn’t come from achieving the ‘perfect’ body. It comes from embracing the one you have.  Make it a practice not nit-pick, obsess, avoid the mirror, to cover yourself up. Life is far too short not to enjoy all that you have been blessed with. You don’t want to look back at all the time […]

Allow me to reintroduce myself. I’m Veronica, your boudoir photographer. I’m intentional about practicing what I preach. These images are in celebration of my (upcoming) 40th birthday. I believe a woman should have body autonomy and the freedom to express herself in WHATEVER way she chooses. Women are powerful, beautiful, exquisite, intelligent, resilient and deserving. […]

From time to time, women share with me their greatest concern is the cost of the experience and products. Cost is an area often misconceived to be unattainable to some and is misunderstood by others. Is boudoir expensive? That all depends on your idea of expensive which is completely relative to your own perspective and […]

Thistle & Spire is one of those brands that make me ooh and ahh every single time. And one the things I love about Thistle & Spire is they also have buxom options. This means they’re size inclusive and their bra cup sizing goes beyond fitting only those with more petite bust lines. The designs […]
