For the maximum amount, because I abhor the cold, it was today 7 years ago I decided to start my own boudoir brand and my own studio, Demi Girl Photography,. it had been negative 34 degrees today with wind chill and that I made a photo film outside at the lake. It wasn’t always the cleanest thing at the time, but I had so much fun making the movie. This was the second time I had shot with this Chicago-based photographer and that I remember after the film, I visited Starbucks on Diversey and Sheffield in Lincoln Park to warm up.
Mind you, at the time when I was sitting with my latte and starting a business I had dreamed of since childhood, I didn’t own a camera, computer or know anything about photoshop. Although I grew up in my photographic business and in dark rooms, I never used photoshop or a camera in the Boudoir-founding half-daughter era. My experience in photographic work began in the early days of photography. just like the time we do not use Walkmans and fixed. Although I attended college as an X-ray technician and did not intend to open my own studio as an adult, I knew that my passion took me back to my roots and instead of photographing the body in a medical setting, I knew that I had another vocation and photography was in my name .
What I knew is that I was willing to need an opportunity to do something that I loved and believed in, and to hope that people would love what I used to do with boudoir photography in the world. I know it sounds crazy to create a business page before I owned a contemporary camera, but I knew I was attacked earlier to create a beautiful and safe space for ladies to celebrate themselves and be photographed in their nightwear.
My career started at a young age. I grew up photographing everything under the sun in my aunt’s local photography business and the darkroom is running. We have also travelled everywhere to show professional show horses. She taught me the peculiarities of photography; light, color, posing and operating a camera. At this point, 30 years ago, I also learned how to use your ink darkroom to fulfill our print jobs. While I was fascinated to learn the entrances and exits of cameras and thus the darkroom, I loved spending time with my aunt, traveling to the shows on weekends, staying in hotels and riding on our own horses during our downtime. She was one of my best friends and I love that I could start my own little internship at such a young age. it had been a boom and I loved the adventure!
In high school, I might find backdrops with ceiling or material we had lying around, and lamps for light. I had a film canon eos and these pictures in the blog are a number of my first creations! Mind you, these are screen prints of photo prints that we dug up and are not of the simplest quality, but it’s fun to identify these gems and think of the beginning of my journey almost 30 years ago.
Seven years ago, I took the opportunity to believe that I could eventually create beautiful art and help other women tell a story, close the book about a chapter in their lives, or help them open a spare chapter and celebrate the next step they were close to. I just wanted to celebrate, inspire and help women seize an opportunity . That’s what the boudoir is about, that’s what life is about. It requires that a lady needs an opportunity and believes herself. The transformations are amazing and it is not only the body, it is also the mind.
Although yes, the photos are beautiful, the mental breakthrough after this experience is so effective. Women see themselves as worthy, brave, powerful, attractive, fearless. often life can cloud the sunshine or dissipate the spark and joy of life we once had. I cannot tell you how I have seen again and again how the desire for all times has reappeared in the soul of my customers. It is a beautiful thing and that I almost love that quite the beautiful pictures themselves.
There is always something to celebrate. In my world, the glass is usually half full and I want to celebrate it sensually every day . I am also a Sagittarius, and this mantra is only a part of me. My customers will often thank me for making everything very easy and always saying, “what’s the point of doing something when it’s not fun!”
I really see the sweetness in every client I work with, and that I count my blessings every day, that God has given me the chance to start Demi Girl’s Boudoir studio and help numerous women see that they are going to do something they never thought possible. this is often what my-clients ended up doing to me and that I believe I do for them jeder andere . We inspire each other . When my client comes from inspiration and I’ve never pulled it, I say, ” let’s offer it a shot!” I always tell my clients to think of this studio as our space. It is our Playground for the day and it will be incredible! I want customers to feel welcome and comfortable . A customer might say OMG Adrienne, I even have to thank you for making me look so good. I stop them because this is often a collaboration. I am a presenter and that we made this art together! My-clients want and openness have everything to try with the art I create.
I have an exquisite makeup, editing and printing team that combines this dreamy luxury experience with the finished art. You see, life is a great collaboration. We all need others to make the planet much better and more beautiful place many thanks to all or all the women who have supported and cheered Demi girl Boudoir Photography for the last seven years. They really help women in the world to see themselves as beautiful, and I applauded them!
