50 and Fabulous | Colorado Boudoir Photography
So you think you can only do a boudoir session if you are young, in perfect shape, and society’s idea of beautiful? The women we see in magazines, in movies and on TV are glamorous, sexy and beautiful but, they’re also probably 14 to 25 years old, have personal chefs and trainers and they are just a tiny percentage of the female population. There are actually a lot more ladies 50 and over, but we hardly ever see them portrayed in a sensual way: 50 and fabulous!
I recently photographed a Mrs. K who has a beauty, confidence, sense of humor, and terrific smile. Going into a boudoir session with everyone, attitude is the most important component and mature women have been through more and exude their strength. Yes, the right lighting, posing, wardrobe, and makeup are but, there is a sensuality that knows no time or age, a beauty that goes beyond skin and clothing that only life experience can give you.
Let’s be honest, most of our preconceived ideas of age are directly influenced by what the media has presented us over the years. Sometimes it takes inspiration from ladies like Mrs. K to change our outlook on age. She is absolutely stunning and I know her husband believes that too as he wanted her to do a boudoir session.
Thank you Mrs. K for trusting me with this experience for you. I’m glad you took time to celebrate how beautiful you are!
