Miss K | Evansville Indiana Boudoir Photographer

I love working with Miss K! She's confident, beautiful, and a seriously hard worker! She did this session for herself and her new husband as a surprise. What a perfect wedding present to give the love of your life! 

She absolutely blew us away at her shoot with her willingness to try new things and fun poses; I'm so happy with how these images turned out, and I feel so blessed to get to work with this babe! 

Below Miss K shares about her session; I love how she talks about how beautiful the process made her feel and the way she encourages other women to participate in something like this for themselves as well! 

 

Why did you choose to do a Fearlessly Feminine shoot?

I chose to do a Fearlessly Feminine shoot because I wanted to do something special for myself and for my fiance.

What was your favorite part of the experience?

The whole experience was out of my comfort zone. I got my hair and makeup done. I got to wear sexy lingerie. Seeing the photos was my favorite part. It made me feel beautiful.

How did your boudoir session make you feel?

I was nervous at the beginning. I didn't know how to pose. Through the session, I became more comfortable and confident.

Would you do another Fearlessly Feminine shoot?

Sure!

Would you recommend a session like this to anyone else? If so, who?

Any woman!

What did you do to prepare for the shoot?

I bought a few new outfits. I took extra care of my skin and face including a hot bath the night before, eating well and drinking plenty of water.

What image was your favorite?

Honestly, I love all of the images I chose. The image that shows my booty is probably the favorite one. I think that is one of my best features.

What products did you decide on? Are you happy with your choice?

I chose the black leather book. I wanted it to be a surprise!

Miss E | Evansville Indiana Boudoir Photographer

Miss E came to me one day and told me she was ready for a fearlessly feminine session and I jumped for joy.. literally! I love getting my girls in front of the camera! Miss E is not only a badass babe in front of a camera, but she's also part of the ASP/FF team! And as you know, we believe in girl power, and owning your body. She's perfect example of confidence and self-love, and we wanted to celebrate her with a shoot that showcased her femininity.

Do More, Wear Less Workshop | Evansville Indiana Photographer

The first time I saw Ewan’s work, I was interested, deeply interested. He photographs in a way that’s impossible to casually scroll by. In the social media sea of being over exposed to images, his work makes you feel something right to your core. Whether it's love or hate, he makes you feel. And for me it was immediate love.  

I appreciate your support as my business and style evolve. My goal is less perfection and more passion. To photograph in a way that forces you to feel.

Today, I want to essay my love for all my fearlessly feminine babes and all the women who follow along with me in this journey!  You are phenomenal and i'm so thankful for your support! 

I want to encourage you during this lovely season of sister-land affection to celebrate!  Celebrate your girls and celebrate yourself!!  Treat yourself to something fabulous!  Do the things you love! Buy yourself a present!  Because Galentine's day is all about exceptional gifts and dance parties! Dance parties are ALWAYS a MUST on Galentine's Day.

 

10 ways to make your Galentine's Day top-notch! 

 1. A DANCE PARTY tribute to your favorite Lady Bosses! I recommend Selena, Taylor and Beyonce to start you off right! (told you, dance parties are a must!) 

This video is the product of a really fun day getting facials and celebrating at The Beauty Room with my team! We danced, we played and we applauded what it means to be fearlessly feminine!

2. Buy yourself something that sparkles!  Every girl deserves to have something fancy that she purchased herself! The Diamond Galleria has tons of options starting at $125 and I want them all!

5. Relax in the bathtub with a lush bath bomb. I promise you wont be sorry. Lush is my jam.  The company markets straight to me. A deliciously smelling macaroon shaped bath bomb that turns my bathtub into a pink glittery dream? Sign me up!!

6. Do something healthy and try a pink drink from sunshine juice.  Not only is it pretty and tasty its good for your insides!

10.  Try a zumba class.  Nothing gets me pepped up for the day like a dance party! And ladies, when the instructor offers to let you borrow one of her belly dancer belts... you say yes!! 

Miss B | Evansville boudoir photography

Miss B was just great to work with!   I love girls willing to get out of their comfort zone!  Miss B did her session as a gift for her man, but i'm so glad she did it for herself too!  Because this girl radiates in front of the camera!  Most of her pictures were reserved for his eyes only, but I'm so happy she decided to share a couple!  I just love this girls baby blues!  

 

This is what Miss B has to say about her session:

"I really enjoyed my fearlessly feminine session and loved the way my photos turned out.  I felt comfortable during the shoot, it was exciting and fun.  The photos showed me how I really look and gave me more confidence .  It's definitely something I'd recommend everyone do at least once in their life!"

Loose your Wings | Workout Wednesday : Evansville IN Boudoir Photographer

The dreaded BATWING. We've all seen it, we all know what it is, and it doesn't look pretty. Back arm jiggle is a problem that all females have been facing for many years now. Even though it's darn near impossible to get rid of completely, it is POSSIBLE to tone it up. By toning up this area you can wave your arms freely in the air with no worries!! 

I'm here to show you a couple of the best workouts for the dreaded batwing. First, let's talk a little science. The muscle that runs along the back side of your arm is called your tricep. This muscle sometimes gets over looked in workouts, because a majority of back and shoulder exercises utilize the tricep muscle, but don't focus on it. 

 

Add a couple of these moves into your next workout to really get those arms toned. Remember to use light weights and do about 12-15 reps and 3 sets. Add in your other favorite exercises to make this a great circuit! 

For example try this fat and arm burner!

20 squats with body weight

15 tricep kick backs with light weight

20 jumping jacks

12 tricep dips off of a chair

20 crunches 

15 tricep push downs. 

Repeat this workout 3 times to really feel the burn! Make sure to take breaks and get water when you need it!

Fifty Shades of Grey | Evansville IN Boudoir Photographer

So everyone is talking about Fifty Shades of Grey so I decided to jump on the band wagon. Most people are focusing on the sexual aspects of the movie, but no one is addressing the motivations behind the actions.

The main character was horrifically and destructively abused. Most movies are exaggerations on reality.  This movie is a very extreme take on being in a relationship with a battered person. When you love someone you have to decide if you want to forgive their crazy and work through their darkness. *Spoiler Alert*  If you're read the series, you know ultimately he changes for her.

I would never never suggest someone put them self in harms way for someone else. But I feel like the movie has two perspectives and one is the journey of a very abused person trying to learn how to let himself be loved. 

On a more positive note, I think the blind folds and hand cuffs make for playful pictures. :)

15 Reasons You Should Be.... | Evansville Indiana Boudoir Photographer

We've talked about the benefits of water and keeping your system hydrated. I'm hoping you fearlessly fit babes are keeping your reusable water bottles with you on a daily basis! Now that we've accomplished that step we are going to take it even further. 

LEMON WATER!

No, I'm not talking about lemon water that you get at your favorite restaurant. I'm talking about freshly made lemon water. (Side note, please don't ever get lemon in your water from a restaurant, in high school I was a waitress, you're going to want to trust me on this one.)

Fresh lemon water has so many benefits for your body. ESPECIALLY, when you are trying to get photoshoot ready. Firstly, lemon water helps improve digestion and cleanses out your system. The last thing you want to be is bloated before you get down to your skivvies. Second, lemon water helps keep your skin beautiful! No one wants a big ugly pimple when your getting photos done. (You're lucky because Alisha is one baller photographer, but nothing kills your confidence like a facial flaw!) Lastly, lemon water is a weight loss aide, need I say any more??

So, start out every morning with a big glass of lemon and water and you'll be looking better and feeling greater in no time!!

Your Beauty Date: Fearlessly Feminine Friday: Evansville Boudoir Photographer

Happy Fearlessly Feminine Friday ladies!  I hope you're having a great Thanksgiving weekend. 

I'm happy to share some new images of DaKyissa.  I get so excited when this babe comes into my studio because of how comfortable and fun she is in front of the camera! I also love hearing about her recent work and growing business. This is the second time she's come in to get pictures taken for her brand so I thought it would be fun to share the business behind that great smile!  

Here's some info about what she does for a living as well as some fun facts about her! 

I'm DaKyissa, your Beauty Date host.  I am a Professional Makeup Artist by trade and a Christian at heart.  You can think of me as your Beauty Coach. My goal is to help women and girls embrace and enhance their beauty from the inside out. Beauty Dates are provided for workshops, weddings, films, tv, photo shoots, proms and other special events.  I specialize in both airbrush and traditional makeup.  My skin care lessons are taught using Mary Kay and Natural Remedies such as honey.  Through my journey, I have recently been blessed to become a blogger and News 4 U writer. 

I was a professional actress and model for 7 years

Happy Halloween | Fearlessly Feminine

Happy Halloween Fearlessly Feminine babes!  Have your ever considered incorporating a theme into your Fearlessly Feminine Session?  Maybe your man just really loves a clean house so a french maid outfit would be fun!  I know lots of my fearlessly feminine girls love to bring their boots!  And I really love the fringe outfit below to go with them!  Your Fearlessly Feminine Session should be a really fun representation of you! 

Love YOU: Monday Mantra | Fearlessly Feminine

I feel like learning to love yourself and letting that be enough is one of the hardest things to accomplish.  But once you figure it out its much harder for other people to bring you down.  No one can dim your light when you're not relying on anyone else for it to shine.  Know your heart, invest in yourself and find what makes you happy.  The most important relationship you have is the one with yourself.  

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!"

This top can be purchase from Single Thread Boutique  here!

Then get excited to bring you for Love and Lemons bralette on vacation in the spring!  My favorite way to wear my bralette is under a tank top or backless shirt! 

Have to Courage to Ask | Monday Mantra

Have the courage to ask for what you want!  I know this seems so basic but when I really took this to heart it opened a lot of doors for me.  I mean the worst someone can say is no!  But so many times people say yes and it leads to amazing things you'd never had, unless you had the courage to ask!  Just make sure when you're asking for things, you're also giving an equal amount or more in return!  Be grateful for the people that take chances on you as you chase your dreams!  

What if you fly | Monday Mantra

Don't ever let fear stop you from doing amazing things.  From where i'm standing i'd rather fail than never try.  Take a risk this week Fearlessly Feminine babes!  Start a business, tell someone you love them, share or begin writing a blog.  Whatever it is just do something that scares you!      Overcome the fear and give yourself a chance to soar.
