why boudoir photography?

How would having a joyful relationship with your body – the way you look in a mirror right this minute – change your life?

I often say my boudoir sessions are “not boudoir.”

I believe there is a place for the body to be celebrated beyond overt sexuality, and beyond only its capacity for procreation. A place of beauty and wholeness. A place of art.  

Think about viewing classical art, figure drawings by DaVinci, grand scenes painted by Michaelangelo. The people are naked because our bodies are beautiful, nothing more and nothing less.

YOU are beautiful too. Let’s celebrate this amazing body you get to live in. Let me help you form a new relationship with your body, a joyful one. Let me challenge those old stagnant ideas about “problem areas.” 

Seeing yourself through fresh eyes and as a piece of art is a powerful tool to forming a new self image, and I promise you are worthy now. Not in 10 pounds, not 10 years ago. Right. Now.

We should probably chat before I see you naked!

“I had asked Tula to do a boudoir shoot on a whim, and a few days later I found out I was pregnant with my third child. Having these images to look back on, especially after such a huge bodily change in the past year, makes me feel invincible. I can be sexy and bring life into this world in the same skin.” “It was so casual and comfortable. I didn’t really know what to expect but Tula is so easy to talk to and knows how to put a person at ease. Her confidence behind the lens helps, too.” 

“Tula’s work is beyond. She has done multiple photo sessions for us, including maternity photos, Fresh 48 photos, and some fantastic tasteful boudoir and nude photos. She is also an unbelievable birth photographer. Her loving and supportive personality makes you feel entirely comfortable in your own skin. I love how she uses a mix of film and digital cameras while taking her time to find the perfect moment to capture each image. Her patience, skilled eye, and natural creativity create gorgeous photos and memories. We will continue to use her photography services again for our soon-to-be-born children and as they get older. As far as photographers in Wilmington, NC, go, Tula is the most thoughtful and skilled photographer for timeless images.” 

“I just want to say that if you are considering doing a boudoir shoot, do it. You won’t regret it and Tula’s style (more fine art than pin up) is really beautiful and will truly make you feel special.”
