Lake Norman Boudoir

Lifestyle boudoir photography in Mooresville, NC that empowers ALL faces of femininity. We celebrate motherhood, self love, autonomy and body positivity!

Operating as usual

Hey lady, just in case no one has told you lately...
✔️ you don’t have to wear lingerie
✔️ you don’t have to wear uncomfortable underwear
✔️ you don’t have to have long hair
✔️ you don’t have to hide your birth marks, freckles or moles
✔️ hyperpigmentation is normal
✔️everyone has stretch marks
✔️ babies have cellulite
✔️ there’s no wrong way to have breasts
✔️ the world doesn’t end if you have body hair
✔️ you are not obligated to get naked to have a boudoir shoot
✔️beauty is a social construct and the least interesting thing about you

My head is spinning with all that has unfolded lately in my personal and business life, so doing a shoot in the spirit of fun and creating was so very needed. Everyone encourages you to do the entrepreneurial hustle, but no one ever reminds you that hustle is not sustainable and rest -real rest- is needed. I know I will get there, I just have to push through this last bit!
.
.
Thank you so much @elizabethaimages for making this stylized shoot come to life. Liz is truly has incredible discipline and vision ❤️ @cruelladeville6 was our model for this shoot and completely blew our minds with her talent! @shysiren included amazing bits of handmade jewelry that brought the whole look together and @vintagesoulfloraldesign created a magical forest in my studio that was so beautiful, I literally couldn’t believe my eyes!

More to come ❤️

Today I feel compelled to talk about two seemingly unrelated things: sisterhood and Dolly Parton.

Deep in my bones, I feel a sisterhood with womxn. I am compelled by my instincts to want to hear them, share with them, protect them, serve them, see them rise and share joy with them. I have always seen womxn as my family, united together by something DIFFERENT -something as old as time itself. I’ve always believed my best friend is my soulmate, even though I am not a spiritual or religious person. There is just something metaphysical in the bonds between women that words cannot properly describe.

In a bizarre way, the song Jolene by Dolly Parton resembles this for me. In a culture that LOVES to write lore about women in love triangles where they tear each other down over a man, Dolly instead tells a very different story. Never once does she describe hatred towards Jolene, or degrade her morality or call her a slanderous name, or make Jolene worth LESS than herself. Instead, she reaches out to touch her heart and with great empathy, to tell Jolene who she is and ask her to move on.

Maybe that isn’t everyone’s interpretation of the song -but her respect of the other woman was what always transcended the “love triangle” theme to me. In its own weird way, the song laid foundation for me to want to be a better ally, sister and friend.

Womxn are MAGIC.

More 👏🏻 laughing 👏🏻 boudoir 👏🏻 PLEASE!

This doesn’t have to be all bedroom eyes and smoldering-temptress-vogue-couture-model-omgshedoesyoga poses. You can laugh. You can show your joy. I know not everyone’s vision of beauty wears a smile, but mine sure af does ❤️

Women deserve to feel safe and secure during our journey together through a session. I ask before touch them, before adjusting their wardrobe before touch their hair. I explain what it is I’m doing, where I need to touch, I ask them if they feel comfortable. I don’t believe that just because they’ve booked me for a shoot, that I’m entitled to their personal space by default. I don’t assume that every woman who walks through doors is going to be completely fine with being revealed in front of me -instead, I assume the responsibility to make her feel SAFE with me. I want her to feel in CONTROL and PART of her session, not that the session is just happening around her. If you think that’s excessive or redundant, I totally understand and I can modify my process to what makes YOU feel comfortable. But I want you to know, those are my factory default settings -not a special request you have to make.

Women. Deserve. Body. Autonomy.

I’m working really hard to become a crazy plant lady and once I get a solid grip on it, PLANTS EVERYWHERE IN THE STUDIO! Empty corner? PLANT! Ledge? PLANT. Gimme all the green witchy vibes!!!
.
.
But these fake plants are the best I can do right now...😂🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ I love using them to frame photos and I move them all over the studio during sessions. It’s amazing what a little bit of shooting through leaves can do 😂

I needed this shoot. I needed vibrancy and joy. When she walked in and showed me her outfit, it was like a sunburst went off in my heart. Ya’ll, the past 90 days has kicked my ever-loving-empath-ASS. Hell, I don’t know who ass it hasn’t kicked 😂 But damn, did I need this shoot. Shout out to my client, who had no idea she was filling my heart with sunshine whenever it was feeling dark. You never know how your presence in someone else’s day can bring a small bit of peace to them 🧡💛🧡💛

Had this treasure of a mama come in to the studio with her little chickabiddy and my heart just wanted to EXPLODE 😍 I wish beyond words I had an image like this of my daughter and I, because it’s these moments my heart longs the most for. Our bodies are magnificent and powerful things ❤️ Thank you @autumn.rpeace for showing the world that postpartum bodies belong in our newsfeed and motherhood is powerful 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

August is slowing down for me and honestly, I’m kinda okay with it 😂 I’ve basically worked every single day in the last three weeks and your girl is dying for a solid nights rest! 👀🤷🏻‍♀️😂 That being said, I have a MOUNTAIN of editing to do on some projects I did with a dozen local badass women that focuses on celebrating being present and stepping out of your comfort zone! I’m a workaholic, what can I say 😬😬😬

How are you guys? Remember to eat your 3 meals a day, enjoy snacks, take naps and don’t over wash your hair! ❤️

Just as a friendly reminder to all my sweet clients, it is very very important that you wear your masks when entering the nail salon to access the studio AND again when exiting the studio!

As you can imagine, it’s crucial that our building be able to comply with regulations and barbicide to remain open. If you forget your mask for any reason, just ask! I have disposable ones in the studio for you to use and I am happy to let you have one.

Cheers xx

UGH THESE PREGGO MAMAS GOT ME LIKE: 😭😭😭

"idontneedababyidontneedababyidontneedababy"

Well hot damn, I hit 1500 followers today so I decided to celebrate with a self portrait with my tiddies all out n about! 😂😂😂 But seriously ya’ll, thank you for the community. For choosing me as your boudoir photographer. For your vulnerability and inclusivity. Sharing my dream with you has been more humbling and fulfilling than I could have ever imagined. Everyday I wake up, in awe of my luck. Thank you ❤️

There must be something in the NC water because I’ve shot more maternity boudoir in the past 2 months than I have in my entire career! Ya’ll were busy this past Valentine’s Day, weren’t cha? 😂 But in all seriousness, this sweet woman and I have been DESPERATELY trying to shoot together...since before the damn pandemic...and just couldn’t get our schedules right! But FINALLYYYYYY 😍 This shoot was just want my spirit needed. And it was such an amazing surprise to find out she was preggers in the meantime! I am glad we waited and were able to create this beautiful images together of her in her power and glow ❤️

VACATION NOTIFICATION: hey everyone, I am on vacation while my momma is in town until July 8th! I will still be editing some photos in the evenings and answering emails as they come in ❤️ But speaking of my momma in town -I want to take her on a tour of our next of the woods! What are some great sights/foods/antique shops in the Lake Norman + Charlotte areas?

Humbled and thankful for this sweet soul. She is a local badass photographer, entrepreneur, creative and wife/momma who was kind enough to share this intimate space with me. It is always an incredible privilege to be asked to photograph someone’s most intimate moments. And being able to share their boudoir images is a truly a gift!

Can we all agree that there are not enough boudoir photos of heavily tattooed preggo mamas out there? I’m gonna have to spam Pinterest with photos of my talented and stunning friend @parisloran 😍

I love love love women like @jawthemeswimming for letting me sneak pictures like this, where she’s unabashedly in her undies holding her precious little chicken nugget. I can’t tell you how many times I cuddled my little one -just like this- and how sacred those memories are too me. And seriously, being me this baby back so I can snuggle him again 😂

New set!!!

My god it feels good to finally be done getting the studio together and start taking clients again! The waiting room, closet and beauty area is FINALLY finished so my brain can finally be at peace 😭😂 I cannot wait to see what the future brings ❤️

Hey friends,

Before I post another photograph of a beautiful soul on this page, it’s important that each and every follower of my business knows that my team and I vehemently support the BLM movement. Kristin and I believe 1st Amendment right is FIRST for a damn good reason. We fervently support the right to demonstrate, march and protest. We stand for the dismantling of systematic racism, ending a culture of white supremacy and will do our best to amplify black voices in any way they need us too.

Let me speak candidly...I cannot and will not bring myself to tiptoe around this exhaustive truth. I am a child of the Midwest with generations of family deeply rooted in the memory of a Jim Crow South, it is my absolute responsibility as a white person to stop being a coward in the face of confrontation with family who use a casual racist rhetoric. I have allowed the fear of familial rejection to shut me up and in doing so, I have been an enabler.

I refuse to have my voice be lost in the echo chamber of the internet, reaching only people who share my values but never to those who need to hear it the most; my family and families just like mine

So I will have confrontations at the dinner table. I will have the uncomfortable conversations -I see what my silence has done.

And I solemnly swear, never again. Lake Norman Boudoir stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.

With fierce love,

Kristina

If I get 1500 followers on instagram by July 1st, I'll hire a model to do a boudoir session with my corgi 😂

Until then, here's a halloween throwback of my best friend holding my weiner.

(pun 100% intended 😘😂)

I keep telling y’all -YOU DONT NEED LINGERIE FOR BOUDOIR! It’s optional! This session is about YOU, not what social media or even society shows you is the expected version sexy 👌🏻I will never forget when I felt ashamed because some idiot laughed at me for being the only girl in my group of friends that didn’t own lingerie 🙄 (Listen, that was 2008 Kristina -2020 Kristina gives 0 effs 😂). This memory stuck with me for my E-N-T-I-R-E adult life because it made me feel like I would always be obligated to put myself in an uncomfortable position to be “sexy”. 🖕🏻That. 🖕🏻Shame. How you wear your sexual empowerment is nobodies 👏🏻 freaking 👏🏻 business 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

(Please hire my talented and inspiring friend/model @parisloran because she needs to be famous!)

It’s amazing what surprises one year can bring ❤️

WE ARE OPEN! I am now taking clients and studio reservations for June 1st+ ❤️
.
.
.
My sweet friend @parisloran stopped by the studio so I could practice after two months without touching my camera. It was so wonderful to feel creative and energized again after weeks of feeling so down. My best friend @chelseeleeva stopped by to help me FINALLY finish the studio and honestly, it felt good to be working on something -even if my AC did go out and it was hot as balls 🤣

I cannot wait to start serving badass women again 🙌🏻

[05/20/20]   IT’S OFFICIAL!

Gov. Cooper is moving us into phase 2 on Friday at 5pm! My studio will be open and taking clients again, with a few modifications.

As you know, clients must enter Pinkies On Main. As such, I ask that all clients please respect the salon’s requirements and wear a mask while entering the salon. 😷

To abide in social distancing requirements, I unfortunately have to restrict bringing additional persons to your session for the foreseeable future. 😕

I will now begin rescheduling and booking appointments for June!

NOTE: MY FAMILY AND I ARE STILL GOING TO BE PRACTICING LIMITED SOCIALIZATION

If you are not comfortable having your session in June but would still love to support my business with a future booking, I am happy to schedule a session reservation through September 2020 🙌🏻

And lastly...I have to express my gratitude.

I cannot thank my clients enough whose generosity SAVED my studio during this uncertain time. I literally owe my ability to re-open my doors to a few incredible women -you know who you are- who prebooked with me.

I don’t know if I will ever be able to thank you enough for your kindness. ❤️

[05/04/20]   I don't know who needs to read this right now but:

Your weight during these uncertain times does not define you. Your disordered eating during this shared traumatic event does not define you.

You are always worthy.
You are always enough.

(TW: mental illness)

For those of you asking, here’s an update on my business: I am still here and I won’t permanently close my doors without a fight. Boudoir photography will likely fall into Phase 2 of reopening NC -which I am going to estimate to be around June. I haven’t taken a paycheck this year to pay my lease in advance, through June, and my lease is up in August. I am one of the lucky ones!
.
.
.
If the worst case scenario happens, I will have to close my studio and return to working as a “satellite studio” (Airbnb’s, hotels, client homes, hourly studio rentals). Believe me, the idea of saying goodbye to this place before I even had the chance to have my grand opening, makes my throat feel like it’s in a vice grip. THAT BEING SAID: it’s not over. I’m not giving up.
.
.
.
But I have also been wrestling with the
reality that my mental health is struggling. Depression and anxiety have always been little dark passengers in my personal wellness. And sometimes, they take the wheel. Please know that my absence online or lack of interaction is not because I have lost my passion, I am just coping. Healing. I will come back, it will get better. ❤️
.
.

Stay home. Stay resilient.
