Lingerie, Guitar, and a Tank Top

Ms T scheduled her session the day before Valentines Day. Luckily I announced a couple of weeks ago that with some studio improvements, I am now able do same-day edits and photo viewing, so we were able to have the digital images picked and ready for her to surprise her hubby the very next day! I am told he really enjoyed his gift. The fabulous Erin Hunt did her makeup. She was so much fun to work with and brought at least 10 bags full of lingerie and wardrobe ideas. We could easily do another session and not repeat a single thing.

Thank you so much for letting me share these beautiful photos! She had this to say:

“I am a 50 yr. old mother of two teenage boys. I have gone thru breast cancer and was diagnosed nearly 5 yrs. ago thru the Swedish Institute in Seattle.

I was told I would need a complete mastectomy, which just devastated me and I thought I would never be attractive again. Thru chemo, much plastic surgery , and time I had come to realize that “this is as good as it would get” for me.

I heard about Boudoir photography thru GMA, a morning show, and decided to look into it “just for fun”.

I found ”Belle Boudoir Photography”! I did a lot of looking around and found that Cheryl’s work was simply far superior and just beautifully tastefully done! She is a true artist!

We spoke, I scheduled a appointment to have a shoot done for myself, as my 50th birthday is just a couple of weeks away and for my husband for Valentines Day.

The session was easy, enjoyable and Cheryl was great to work with. She made me very comfortable. She had great suggestions and has a real eye for what will look great! I really can’t say enough about it, but that it was one of the best decisions I have made for myself in a very long time. It was a investment, but what better time than now?!

I am SO glad I did it! I am looking forward to going back to do another, I am hoping SOON!

Look into it for YOU! It is so well worth it! There is even a lady that will come do your hair the way YOU like, as well as your make up if you choose! She is the best in Seattle!

Thanks again Cheryl!”
