Sassy in Sooke – Boudoir Photo Shoot Follow-Up
“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”
– Coco Chanel
As you may recall, over the summer I had some boudoir photos taken in East Sooke Regional Park. The photographer, Roxanne Low, and I had an awful lot of fun! We laughed and laughed and laughed…at each other, at ourselves, at the circumstances. And I think that joy and lightheartedness is reflected in the photos.
From the Search & Rescue exercise underway around the corner (sexy guys in uniforms, need I say more?), to the multiple hikers who traipsed right through the middle of our photo shoot, to the fact that, try as a I might, I just couldn’t get the hang of “ballet hands” (a way of holding one’s hands so they look relaxed and graceful), it’s rather amazing that I was able to stop laughing long enough for Roxanne to snap a few pics.
But snap she did. For I was in the hands of a pro who captured the essence of me: sassy, smart, strong and sporty 🙂
Here are a few of the photos:
