fearlessly feminine

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.

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 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!

Feeling Foxy: Fearlessly Feminine Friday | Evansville Indiana Boudoir Photographer

Happy Fearlessly Feminine Friday (night)! Tonight i'm all about that sultry black lingerie!

What is it about wearing the color black that makes you feel like a total fox?  You put it on and walk out the door feeling fierce and polished!  

I'm all about bringing this confidence into your Fearlessly Feminine session! Black is such a glamorous choice for one of your lingerie pieces! But I think I love it most because it absorbs the light and allows your to SHINE! 

Check out the latest styles from some recent Fearlessly Feminine babes!  Also don't forget if you book now and mention you follow the blog, you'll receive $50 off now through feb 14th!

Monday Mantra: This year I will be | Evansville Boudoir Photography

Happy New Year Fearlessly Feminine babes! Life is all about living a life you love.  Head into this year with an open heart and a lot of spirit! Be furiously intense in the direction of your dreams!  

What are your goals for the year? Tell me all about them!  

Mine you ask? 
Personally, to travel... I'm so excited to get to take a long vacation with my main man and see some great new countries!


Professionally, to keep up on this blog consistently and share my work more!  I love photographing and sharing all your incredible stories!

Goal Digger: Monday Mantra | Fearlessly Feminine Boudoir

Hustle.   Aspire to do great things. There's nothing more attractive than a woman with ambition.  

Be a Goal Digger!  Design a life you love and make no apologies.  Goal Diggers aim to be resilient, self sufficient women who take on their life in full force!   

Challenge for this week? Write down your goals!! Why? Because people that do are astronomically more successful than those that don't!  Check out this great study here.  

Don't hold back, dream big and make all those awesome goals a reality!   

All about that plank: Workout Wednesday | Fearlessly Fit

Planks are one of the best exercises that you can do for your body. When you hold a plank you are working so many different muscles in your body, this is something that not every exercise can do.

In today's workout I have added a 5 minute plank workout. Trust me, 5 minutes seems like it would be nothing, but your muscles will be burning after this workout.

When you do different variations of planks, you work different muscles. So, in this workout, you will not only be working your core muscles, you will be working your shoulders, arms, obliques and most importantly your booty!

 

Five minutes is the perfect amount of time that you could do this workout everyday. Although, make sure to give your body some rest. Increasing the amount of time you hold your planks will make this workout even tougher.

You could also add in a couple of other exercises, like squats or lunges to make it a full workout. Try adding this to your next workout routine and I bet you'll feel the burn!!

Mountain Climbing | Monday Mantra

I'm not really an outdoorsy girl.  There are a lot of aspects about it that just aren't my thing.  But  the end goal always pushes me through the bugs, sweat and discomfort.  I have a deep desire to climb a mountain just to take in that view from the top.  Keep your eye on the prize in this way with all your goals! (real mountains and mountains of paperwork)  When focused on how satisfying the end result is going to be its easier to push through the routine.  Take each day this week one step at a time!  You'll feel like queen of the world standing on top of that mountain!  And you'll be moving onto the next goal with a positive outlook. 

Take Chances | Monday Mantra

It seems these days you notice more people standing by and watching and less people doing. People are scared to take the chance of being embarrassed, or getting hurt. But in order to live life to the fullest we have to get out of our shell and take chances. Everyday. Don't be so focused on what others will think. Live your life for you.

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! 

Make Something Marvelous | Monday Mantra

Can you look at a heart drawn in the sand on a beach and say "The waves have made this beautiful drawing"? Of course not. Someone took something as simple as their finger and used it to make something beautiful. But without their effort you wouldn't have seen the marvelous beauty of something so simple. Apply that to your life. Look at the things you want and don't just wait for them to happen. Make them happen.

HITT Workout | Fearlessly Fit

  A HITT workout is my favorite kind of workout. Firstly, HITT means high intensity interval training. This is my favorite kind of workout because it's quick and powerful.

  If you're like me you have a busy lifestyle, you don't have 2 hours to work out every day. HITT workouts can take as short as 15 minutes. Check out this workout listed below. It's perfect because it involves simple movements, but trust me you'll be sore tomorrow. Good luck my fearlessly fit girls!!

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!"

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.  

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!

Lady in the Water | Fearlessly Feminine Boudoir

I’ve been in the dark, been damaged

Thought I’d never feel passion again

But haven’t we all

I was searching for perfection then

For a worth or love that was definite

Less vulnerable than it is to validate yourself

A coward to redemption

Now I feel I am bearing witness to a whole gender

Finding no fault in their own skin

I want to walk beside beauty discovering itself

I want to ache with humanness

To feel insignificant

I want to feel only water clinging to me and

Make my peace with all the ripples in it

My reflection as a conduit
One has to nearly drown to gain the boldness to be raw

The most saturated beauty emerges in the wake of

One learning to love themselves fiercely

-Madison
