Miss Emily | Fearlessly Feminine Friday

I love a girl that is all about focusing her Fearlessly Feminine session on celebrating herself!  What a beautiful time in your life to document!  I love my 20's and I love other fearlessly feminine babes that know how to embrace theirs!  Emily is a runner and works super hard! I had a great time taking her portraits! 

This is what Emily had to say about her session

"I had the best time getting my pictures taken!  Alisha made me feel so comfortable with myself and she just made me feel absolutely beautiful.  My pictures were amazing!  She is so talented and so professional!"

Bridal | How to Wear it Wednesday

Some of my favorite Fearlessly Feminine sessions are spent with brides celebrating their upcoming weddings!  My brides love these sessions because not only is a great gift for their groom but it's an amazing experience for them.  In the spirt of that were talking about bridal lingerie!  

For Bridal I love little lace details! Body suits and rompers are a great way to start the session.  I love all these flirty pieces.  Details are important so make sure that your engagement ring is shining bright!  I also love the midi ring and high waisted trend this year. Either would make a great addition to a 2014 fearlessly feminine session!

These fancy white bra and panty sets are amazing and sure to make you feel glamorous!  This is also a great day to break in your wedding shoes.  Many brides buy special heels for their big day!  Bring them along and we'll show them off without the dress hiding your feet!

Look fierce in Black | How to Wear it Wednesday

I get lots of questions from clients about what they should wear for their sessions and with all the options out there I understand how it can be overwhelming.  This will be the first post of many on this topic so I figured we'd start with lots of black options for all different body types.  I want all my clients to wear what they love and choose things that make them feel beautiful!  But, Its really important to dress for your body type.  Know the areas you love about yourself and highlight them! 

I love beautiful sheer robes with nothing on underneath!  They look great in front of a sunny windows.  Shape-wear that hugs all your curves just right look amazing on camera!  Feeling fun? Pair pantyhose with rockin' heels and a really amazing bra!

Miss E | Fearlessly Feminine Boudoir

Its Fearlessly Feminine Friday ladies!  So excited to be showcasing such a beautiful babe today! Miss E has lots of class and lots of sass.  I really enjoyed photographing her!  She rocked Paparazzi's dresses like a boss!  Celebrate yourselves ladies!  Celebrate your relationships!   You deserve it!    

This is what Miss E had to say about her experience:

"How to sum up my beauty and boudoir experience? A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!  My friend and I did the shoot on the same day so that help ease my nerves.  I was also nervous to have my makeup done by someone else but Alisha's hair and make up team made me look so fierce, I love it!  When I went to go pick out my pictures I planned on only getting an album but they all looked so good I couldn't choose!  So I had to get more than just an album!  My husband is defiantly going to love his surprise boudoir anniversary presents.  I highly recommend you let Alisha take beauty and boudoir pictures for you!  You will feel like a princess for a day and won't be disappointed- this girl is amazing with a camera"

Monday Mantra: Wishbone vs. Backbone

Create a life you want.  Take a risk.  Dare to dream a little bigger.  Stop wishing and start making your beautiful dreams a reality.

Introducing Sara Jasper: Fearlessly Fit

Hi, My name is Sarah and I’m working exclusively with Alisha to help her clients get  their bodacious bodies into prime photography form. I’ve been in the health and wellness industry for 5 years, helping clients with fitness, lifestyles changes, and diet. I have a degree in Exercise Science and a Masters in Health Promotion.  Outside of my passion for helping people feel great about themselves I also love cheesecake, red wine, french bulldogs (or puppies in general), the state of Ohio (go bucks!), and a great pair of shoes.

What does it mean to be fearlessly fit? It means not feeling guilty about that last bite of succulent cheesecake, or that handful of chips. It means being fearless in your own body. It is not a long grueling workout seven days a week, or a crash diet. Being fearlessly fit is a lifestyle change that you can make to get you feeling and looking AMAZING. Too many times we hear clients that want to do photo shoots, but are just waiting to “lose just 10 more pounds”, or “just tone up a little more”. Well guess what ladies, I’m here to help! Making small changes in your day-to-day lifestyle are GUARANTEED to make you feel great, lose weight, and tone up!  Time after time my clients have gotten to where they have not only lost weight and toned up, but KEPT IT OFF!  Today is the day to make a change with your lifestyle to becoming a healthier individual. Whether you want to tone up right before an upcoming session, or you want to book a session 3,6, or 9 months from now, I am here to help!  

My program doesn't involve a gym membership, or hundreds of dollars at the grocery store to change your diet.  I am going to show you how to become a fearlessly fit female by changing just small things you already do day to day. I hope you are ready to take this journey with us!

Loving me in Lingerie | Fearlessly Feminine Evansville Beauty and Boudoir

I'm so excited to introduce a new friend of mine, Shayla!  She's a talented actress with so much drive.  I really enjoyed working with her and was so glad when she wanted to write a post about her experience.  I'm so thankful for positive, fearless ladies in my life!  I'm happy Shayla wanted to share some of her images, she looks AMAZING!  This is her story. 

evansvilleboudoirphotographer_shayla.jpg

If someone would have told me a couple weeks ago that I’d be staring at a professional photo of myself in lingerie and saying “Damn, I look good,” I would have laughed. 

But that’s just what I did a few hours ago.

Okay, let me back this train up a second and tell you a little bit more about me.

I’m a 27 year-old actress who has been in the theater world for over two decades now. This has led to me becoming a simultaneously confident and insecure woman.  As females, we put constant pressure on ourselves to live up to this Hollywood standard of beauty and I am no exception. Man, it gets hard in that head of mine sometimes! 

I’m the girl with the bigger arms. I’m sure that’s what people think. Bigger arms and a flabby stomach. I could stand to lose some weight. My legs are pretty good, but I could still tone up my butt.”

And on and on the movie plays in my mind.

So, when Alisha and I talked about doing a boudoir shoot, I was a little nervous, to say the least. I have this picture in my mind of who I am and I was afraid that’s who I would see in the pictures. 

But I decided to go for it. Alisha’s an incredibly talented photographer, I already knew that. Surely, I thought, she could get something out of me.

Little did I know, what she would “get out of me” has been there all along.

After a really refreshing boudoir session (read: drinking mimosas, lots of silliness and leaving feeling pretty darn fearless after spending a morning in my skivvies), I felt a little bit more excited about how these photos might turn out. 

Alisha had me over to her apartment downtown for my photo preview. It’s worth the session just to get to check this place out! There’s something about her apartment that makes you feel high fashion just by standing in it. She handed me a glass of wine (who could say no under these circumstances?), turned on “Blurred Lines,” and directed me to look toward her 70 inch screen where my shots would be debuted.  

The first picture floored me. Ummm…that’s ME! The second picture- BOOM. Another great one. As she continued to show me what she’d captured, it really started to hit me. I AM sexy. I AM gorgeous. And hot damn, I’m fabulous.

I started to realize that the woman I picture in my head isn’t reality. Alisha has the talent of finding what is special and unique about each of us. Her craft is sexy, yes, but also soft, subtle, and feminine. I ended up having a hard time picking which ones I liked the most because she gave me so many options to choose from! She has an eye for finding shots that you’ll love. 

All and all, I wouldn’t trade this experience. Yes, maybe my boyfriend will like these photos (who are we kidding—he’ll LOVE them), but when it’s all said and done, I’m so glad I did them for myself.

I am fearlessly feminine and so much more. Thanks to Alisha Sims for helping me see that. I think every woman deserves a chance to feel gorgeous as hell and there’s no way Alisha won’t deliver that.
