A New Branch: Portland, Oregon Boudoir Photography

As of February 2nd, I am officially adding a new branch to my business...boudoir!!! For years I have been wanting to help women discover their beauty, uniqueness, and self empowerment, and I have finally done just that. Boudoir is a very powerful form of photography. It's not exploitation or vanity. Boudoir is strength. It's loving yourself. It's beauty and happiness! If all we achieve in this world is self love and joy, then I think we've done okay. 

This tattooed beauty is Ashley. She's a fearless go-getter who graciously took time out of her morning to help me inspire other women like her. 

Despite the weather predictions (100% chance of rain), we had the most beautiful sunny morning to keep our spirits high. 

We found an Airbnb that advertised tons of natural light, open space, and close in Northeast. All great factors I thought.

There were stools, mirrors, and great space for making this session roll.

Ashley was amazing at taking direction, and helped me create these beautiful boudoir portraits. 

I am so excited to watch this branch grow on its own and become something new and creative with the help of local women. I want to invite you, your friends, your moms & sisters to consider booking your own boudoir session! Trust me, nobody expects you to be a model. Your size is the perfect side. And you are beautiful enough. 

For the month of February, I am offering a special "Love Yourself" discounted session of $300 to help you explore boudoir with me! Please email me at katie@katiedessinphotography.com or use the contact page to get in touch.
