Voted Best Maternity Photographer in 2018 by Looks Like Film

Becky Leanna Photography voted Best Maternity Photographer by Looks Like Film.

Back around the 1st of the year a very large photography platform, Looks Like Film voted me in a category of Best Maternity Photographer. I’m not really one to put my self out there, sharing in groups and quite frankly sharing online in general, mainly from personal anxieties, thus you’re just now hearing about this. 🙂 It’s an honor to have an image voted in by so many peers that later led to giving me this title. I’m so grateful for this community of photographers who inspire and lift each other up daily. I need to make it my goal to put my self out there more, share my work, stop the self doubting because you just never know!? It’s truly challenging to get out of your own head and not compare your self when you constantly see images from some of the best photographers from around the world in this group, but little old me even hitting the map just goes to show we all need to put our selves out there more. If you don’t take the leap how can we fly? (Is that a saying? Sounded right in my head!) They have created a boudoir category and I plan to enter some images in it see where it gets me, maybe Boudie By Becky and some of my gorgeous Boudie Babes will hit the map!

Top 5 Tips To Prepare For Your Boudoir Session: Sacramento Boudoir Photographer

Who and Why?

A boudoir session isn’t just sexy photos to give your significant other. A boudoir session is about YOU and for YOU. It’s to embrace every inch of your skin and curve on your body. Embrace the journey that your body has given you. Every single person in this world is unique and different, no two bodies are the same. Nor should they be, how boring would that be?! We all are beautiful, give me any woman and I will find the beauty and the sexy in her. Book a boudoir session because you’re a bad ass boss babe and you know it and are proud or maybe you book a boudoir session because you want to find that inner goddess. No matter what age you are RIGHT now, you are only getting older and older. There is always an excuse to tell your self you’re not ready. Trust me, I will guide you with the right posing and lighting and will show you how freaking gorgeous you are.

 

 

 

What to Wear?

First off, you don’t need sexy lingerie to be sexy. Your birthday suit is a great way to finish a session if you’re up for it! A sexy off the shoulder sweater with some cozy knee/thigh high socks. A sexy sheer feminine dress that you slowly undress. It’s all about the art of tease. With that, I love straps. Strappy everything! A body suit is major flattering on pretty much every figure! I have yet to see someone in a body suit and not love it. They also have straps so we can let that strap fall off the shoulder or give a little tug on it.

Ditch the thongs and the padding in bras when it comes to two piece sets. Thongs are great in real life but in photos more is less. Some cheeky underwear translate much better in photos. Something with a little more fabric to show off that booty and highlight it.  Padded bras, again great in real life but in camera, a sheer, lacy or strappy bra will be so much sexier.

I love neutrals as far as colors go. Black, white, pale pink, beige to blend in with your skin color, grey… Soft, romantic and classic.

Avoid slips and baby dolls. While they’re super cute they don’t translate will on camera. Find pieces that hug your curves, accentuate your assets and maybe hide what you don’t love.

 

 

H20

Drink lots of water in the weeks leading up to your shoot. Water will hydrate your skin and give you that natural beautiful glow so many of us love. You’r body and your skin will thank you for staying hydrated!

 

Skip the Tan

While I am an advocate for spray tanning over a sun or booth tans skip the tanning for your session. Your natural skin will photograph so much more beautiful then a faux tan which more then likely will translate to orange in photos. If you know you’re planning to have a boudoir session sometime in the summer or after a vacation make sure you lather up with the SPF when you’re outside to avoid unwanted tan lines.

 

 

Eat

Please, please, please eat before your session. Not eating that morning is not going to make you more skinny the day of your session. I repeat, not eating before your session will not make you more skinny. It will however leave you feeling, tired, drained and week and dare I say hangry? Many of the boudoir poses are more challenging and require you to hold the pose so I can work the angles. If you are running on an empty stomach you won’t be able to hold them and may start to feel light headed and dizzy. It’s like trying to do a strenuous work out or take along hike on an empty stomach.

 

Rest assure that once you have booked I send you all of these tips and more on how to prepare for your session. Most importantly though, come ready to love your self and trust me to do my job. You’ve hired me to make you look your best and that is what I intend to do!

Folsom Lake Family Photo Session

This family was just gorgeous and when they told me they were a lake family I knew we needed to do a water session. So we headed out to Folsom Lake to create these beautiful family photos. We are nearing the tail end of summer which means those perfect golden summer sunsets are beginning to fade. Lighting plays such huge role in how photos turn out, it really sets the mood, and unfortunately you can’t have this beautiful light all day long, but the light that day at Folsom Lake did not disappoint!

Boudoir Photo shoot, Roseville California

Boudoir isn’t just sexy photos to give as a gift to your significant other. Boudoir is capturing you, at this moment in time in your best light as gift to your self. No matter what your age is right now, in 15-20 years you will look back on these photos and think, dang, I looked good. I know I look back on photos from my early 20’s, photos I thought I didn’t like because I had a “pooch”. I look back 15 years later, and think what pooch? You are crazy. I know I will do the same thing again with my now 35 year old body when I’m 45. So don’t wait. Embrace your self, love your self, you are beautiful just the way you are. You look damn good right now so capture it, bottle it up and save it for another season of your life to look back on fondly.

 

I always encourage anyone doing a boudoir shoot to do it for them selves. Have your intent to be solely for you. This is empowering. Once you see those photos, yes share, give as a gift to someone you love or share with friends your rocking sexy photos, be proud of them. But do them for you, I can’t stress this enough. Check out this total boss babe who is the GM to two fitness studios and who totally rocked her shoot that she made a point to mention she was doing for her and her alone.

Sacramento California Senior Session

Emma is such a sweet mature girl for being a young high school senior . She was a senior in high school and completing  cosmetology school as well when we shot this session. So, a senior in both schools! It takes commitment from young girls, I feel, to take outside courses for their future careers when they could be hanging out with friends. Her mom should be and is proud of her dedication and commitment.

We started her senior session in my home studio space then drove to downtown Sacramento to get that cool urban hipster feel that I feel is Emma. Don’t you wish you looked like this as a high school senior? Senior girls these days are not the awkward still finding them selves fashions wise girls that I was or a lot of us were.
