BEHIND THE LENS AT BELLA BOUDOIR

My name is Petra and I'm your boudoir photographer. I simply adore capturing the beauty of brides, moms, professional women, women in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s, women who have big boobs and little boobs, curvy hips or boyish figures, wrinkles, cellulite and baby pooches, tall girls, short girls, girls who are shy and girls who are bold. In other words:   I love to capture the beauty of all women!

I am a 40-something mom of three beautiful children and one adorable grandson, my "mister" and I have been together for over a decade. I am a breast cancer survivor.  I am on a mission to give women of all ages, shapes and sizes an amazing way to embrace their sensuality and to tell the story of who they are, right now.

I’m a true believer in the power of intimate portraiture. My clients inevitably tell me that their boudoir session gave them new self-confidence, turned up the heat in their relationships, and helped them be more accepting of their bodies. I know this personally because I’ve done four boudoir sessions myself.

I believe …

I believe in following your passions … and taking the necessary risks to follow them even if it means you might fall flat on your ass.

I believe in the Law of Circulation (what you give comes back to you multiplied)

I believe in love. I didn’t used to. It took learning to love myself to truly allow myself to be loved.

I believe that right now is the right time. because if not right now, then when?  Time escapes us all.

I believe that Reese's peanut butter cups are the key to great health and coffee is the nectar of the gods.

Fun facts...

I have three children and a grandson.

I will set down my camera and forget where I've put it at least three times throughout our session.

I was born with the gift of gab and a wickedly dirty sense of humor.  One might even say that I can be a bit silly at times.

I will ask you to put a cock in your hip and say 'banana' in your sexiest voice.
