I’m Sasha owner/photographer of Sobas Photos. You might be wondering how I came to be a women’s boudoir photographer. That’s a pretty precise niche right? Well I spent a number of years after graduating from photography school doing art shows, photographing weddings, and really just about everything else out there. But none of these turned out to be as satisfying as one would hope. It felt like there was something missing. Then I responded to a general offer to join a Facebook group about boudoir photography. It’s crazy how much Facebook, of all things, has caused some significant changes in my life- side note: my husband and I met on Facebook just over ten years ago.
That boudoir group totally changed my photographic world. It inspired me to try something I had never really thought of before and I LOVED IT!! Here I was able to create stunning portraits AND make someone else feel just as good, if not better, about themselves as I did creating it. It fulfilled my photographic needs like nothing else I had done. Why? Because of the way it changed the way the women felt about themselves. That was the key. We go through our day to day lives and some of us, sometimes, forget to feel like the strong, sexy, and desirable women we know we are on the inside. Boudoir photography is an opportunity to embrace that side of ourselves. It’s just a few hours to ourselves but those hours can be life changing. Plus bonus since it’s photography we will always have that album or box of prints to look at when we need to be reminded just what a STRONG, CONFIDENT, AND BEAUTIFUL WOMAN we really are.
