HI BABE! / a little about me
LAUREN / Nihen
I like confident, feisty women. I want you to not feel judged for showing a little skin. I want you to be bold and sure of yourself in a way that makes you feel you can conquer the world.
I want you to keep discovering things you love about yourself. Your body should be a continually changing landscape reflective of your full and adventurous life. Your body is not the same as it was yesterday and that’s how it should be. Embrace the imperfect and help others do the same.
My lovely clients tell me they wish I followed them around because I hype them up and fill the space with positive compliments. Encouraging voraciously. If I could follow every women around filling them with positive words and self love, I would do it in a fucking heartbeat!
My job is more than just a job. It is my passion. Deep within my soul I know the following to be true:
Every woman is beautiful. Every single one.
That includes you. But you have to discover that for yourself. I invite you to come along for an experience that will surprise you, excite you and most of all, motivate you to do better, be better and feel better.
Women are beautiful. Our bodies are curvy, intricate and hold all the memories of our adventurous life. I want to celebrate that. My style is feisty, sexy and playful. I love incorporating movement, laughter and sultry moods into my work. I play up your inner bad ass and I love instilling a sense of feminine confidence with a little sass.
The word sexy doesn’t satisfy me. I want you to own your space so completely that you view your body as a work of art worthy of the space it occupies. I want you to have so much confidence and love for yourself you can’t help but spread it to other women. This is a movement beyond sexy. It’s about empowerment.
I photograph all my sessions out of my home in Auburn, California! I love my studio space. It has tons of great light. Sometimes I’ll set up a pool/milk bath session in the backyard, shoot on location at Folsom Lake, or even go to my client’s home. The possibilities do not stop at my studio so let me know what your vision is!
Women come to me for boudoir sessions for all different kinds of reasons. Whether they are getting married, having an anniversary, going through some life changes or celebrating milestones (my favorite reason is the “just because” reason). Whatever your reason for stepping through my doors, you deserve to indulge in boudoir. Seeing these women transform in front of my eyes is such a blessing and I want to help all women see how beautiful they are – to help them see themselves how I see them.
I had someone write to me once and they said…
“I think if I saw all my vulnerabilities turned into something so beautiful as a whole, the everyday insecurities would have less power over my thoughts and less control over my self-worth.”
Wow. I literally came to tears reading what she wrote me and I was so touched she took the time to do so. I mean, what if, right? What if you saw yourself how I see you? What if you saw all your insecurities and self perceived “flaws” in a way you haven’t before? Would you feel empowered? Would you feel beautiful? Would you feel like enough? That’s my hope and my dream and my overall goal with Just Peachy Boudoir.
MY LIFE OUTSIDE THE STUDIO
When I’m not photographing beautiful people, I’m either hanging out with my wonderful husband, or out at the barn riding my horse. I love baking cakes I shouldn’t eat, drinking champagne anytime of day and traveling. I enjoy working out, cuddling the crap out of my pit bull and scolding my cat for eating my plants (!!!). I love coffee, gummy bears in my frozen yogurt and kiwis are my favorite fruit! I love reading, writing and having constructive and mind exploring discussions.
