luxportraiture Vancouver- boudoir-9“Having taken boudoir pictures by Kari was an extraordinary and empowering experience. I made the decision to have a photo-shoot session for myself since I have stopped seeing in the mirror the person I once was. Thoughts about aging, my 40s and losing body from my 20s were not a pleasant thought. I felt I lost myself while giving everything to my husband, family and work. Kari captured through the lens the person that is still there, Me: gorgeous, feminine, sexy, classy and hungry for life. The shots were showing the person that I should be seeing every day in the mirror. Now, I do see that person every day since pictures ended up framed all over my bedroom walls. Every woman should confirm and/or rediscover her femininity and have boudoir pictures taken by such a professional photographer.
Thank you Kari for capturing who I really am and giving me such an amazing experience with shots that will last forever.”

lux portraiture vancouver  boudoir-9269“Thank you so much for the wonderful experience! My original intention was that this would be a surprise gift for my husband, but I’ve gotten so much out of it myself!! The day of the shoot was so empowering for me. I was nervous and anxious, but Kari made it such a great experience. She made me feel really comfortable and I felt really assured of her ability to make me look great! After the shoot, I felt so amazing. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face and certainly encourage everyone woman to do this for themselves. The day I brought my husband in to view the pictures was awesome. He had no idea what we were doing and when we walked into to Kari’s studio and started looking at the pictures, he couldn’t wipe the smile off his face. The next day he told me that this was the best gift I have ever given him and the best thing for our marriage! Thank you so much for this great experience!!”

“It’s always been a secret dream of mine to pose for a boudoir photo shoot. Although I struggle with body-confidence (I’m all curves) I knew it wasn’t enough to stop me. Kari helped me to celebrate my body. Her artful direction and warmth put me at ease and encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone for some incredible shots. I had no idea I looked so good almost naked! I would absolutely recommend working with Kari and her beauty team. The entire process gave me a new appreciation and love for my body and all its curves.”
Miss C.

“I originally contacted Kari to have Boudoir photos taken for my husband’s 40th birthday, but after leaving her studio that day I realized that honestly, I really did this for myself.  I felt totally at ease with Kari. She was warm, and encouraging and ultimately made me feel amazing about myself the whole time.  I would say that for most of my life I have never considered myself beautiful. Now that I am in my 30s, I have a much healthier sense of self, but still have felt pretty average looking. When I saw myself in these pictures, for the first time in my life I felt beautiful. I couldn’t stop looking at them! I was in awe of myself. Thank you Kari for helping me see myself in a new way!”

Lux Portrait Boudoir -6513“Thank you, Thank you, Thank you – I can’t say it enough, Kari. I owe so much to you that I just won’t be able to put into words.
My decision to do a boudoir shoot came after several years of deliberation and absolute terror. The thought of having photos of me in my underwear taken by a stranger petrified me – especially as somewhat of a bigger girl.
But I decided after losing 30 pounds and getting engaged that now was the time. I would be brave and show up for my photo shoot, even though I felt sick to my stomach with fear. I decided to do this for my fiancé – I wanted to give him something spectacular as a wedding gift, and this is it.
The day of the shoot came, and once I entered your beautiful studio, I started to relax a bit.  After I was beautified by Sara, I almost felt ready to have the photos taken. She made me look amazing, and I felt good about myself. Within the first two shots, I relaxed, and before you knew it, I was actually having fun. It was such a great experience for me. The first photo I saw of the ones you took of me took my breath away, and I immediately started to cry. Not because it was bad, but because the photo showed a normal sized woman looking really great. I realized that was me – and it was nothing even close to what I thought I looked like,  especially after years of having serious body image issues. Kari was kind enough to offer me a payment plan over the course of about 2 months, but I just couldn’t wait for the photos and put money aside to pay earlier to get them rather than waiting. I needed those photos!
What I ended getting out of this experience is absolutely priceless. I realize this is a gift for my fiancé, but I now realize how much they really were a gift to myself . Thank you, Kari. You have done wonders for my self esteem and helped me shake off years of body image problems. Thank you for changing how I feel about myself for the better. I will be back one day….hopefully for a maternity shoot!”
