I think we all have our “whys” in this world. But, I really wanted to share with you Why I Started EB Boudoir. For me, it was an amazing journey to find my passion – Boudoir Photography.
Taking that leap was truly empowering not only for me but for my future clientele. Shifting and pivoting career paths when you’re established as a wedding photographer was a giant leap of faith. Built solely on listening to your gut, having a solid foundation of your craft, and investing in yourself #1.
Why I Started
Figuring it out
I was a professional wedding photographer for years! That’s me, Emily Brault, Fine Art Photography! I had built a whole business as a photographer, which isn’t a guarantee and, like all freelance work, can be a rocky road of thrilling days and weeks to very passive months.
My niche has always been portraiture which I was fortunate to refine over the years. I loved working with couples on their exciting and eventful wedding days, yet I found I was not too fond of the rush of the day. It was hectic and chaotic, and the moments I captured were magic, yet I knew something was missing.
One fantastic fateful day, a bride to be asked me for something I had never expected….to photograph her in her bridal lingerie. Of course, I accepted! It was for her husband to be; the darling and gorgeous bride wanted to surprise her hubby with the gift of Boudoir!
The experience was incredible, and I had never had the opportunity for such a challenge. After I edited the photos and sat down to review them, that noteworthy “ah-ha” lightbulb moment illuminated both of us. Not only was I so in love with these photos as an art form, but her transformation inspired me. It was as if someone had just shown her a mirror for the first time, and she was shocked by her confidence and beauty. This was not just a simple lingerie shoot; this was so much more, a gift of empowerment of self-love and personal expression to oneself.
And ergo the beginnings of my newfound career as a Boudoir photographer!
Whether a bride gifting their soon-to-be spouse or a woman who needs that boost, it’s a super rewarding job. It’s not just about the art or pretty photos; it’s about making a difference in how women see themselves. I have never lost sight of that vision; that is the core of EB Boudior, my mission, and my values.
Building something is not easy, especially as a solo female entrepreneur. There were (and TBH still are) many challenges of uncertainty, the responsibilities and balance of motherhood, and just being a genuinely cool person navigating her way through life, like everyone else.
I believe that every woman should experience the gift of Boudoir. Every woman is strong, beautiful, and unique – and now it’s time for you to see it.
Experience it for yourself! Take that leap of faith as I did many years ago. I promise you will not be disappointed. You may be nervous, which is normal; however, that hidden diva or divine goddess you have in you will come out, babe. Trust in your magic.
