Exciting news, boudoir fans!! The Boudoir Café was featured on the popular current news website, The Daily Beast! :   Journalist Samantha Allen was kind enough to contact me and The Boudoir Café team as prime contributors to her article, “How Boudoir Photos Are Redefining Sexy.” The article itself is lovely, and has a lot of good words to say about boudoir by those who have participated and been changed by it; and by boudoir photographers (including Hedley and myself!) who have found a great passion and art in capturing such intimate and beautiful moments.     Do yourself a favor and read it! Just like a boudoir photoshoot experience itself, it promises not to disappoint. Xoxo, Cherie

Hello all my lovely ladies of all shapes, sizes, genders, and abilities! The power of boudoir is that it recognizes the beauty in every woman. Because every woman is beautiful. The team at The Boudoir Cafe has had the pleasure of working with plus size girls -- of which we say: Plus Size? How about natural, normal, gorgeous size. Though the industry has coined the term "Plus Size," we don't necessarily believe in it, because it implies that this is a specific category of girl recognized for her beauty apart from a norm unhealthily established by the industry. Girls can be -- and should be -- any size or shape they want, whatever size or shape their body is naturally. Because natural is beautiful. Hedley, the team, and I believe in body empowerment, in positive body outlook. This is part of what makes our job at The Boudoir Cafe feel less like a job, and more like a purpose enjoyably fulfilled. We have found our passion in boudoir photography because it shows every girl that they are beautiful, they are sexy -- and most of all, that those two things come from being uniquely themselves. Boudoir is freeing, it is…

Hi wonderful world and beautiful readers! We had the total pleasure of hosting four beautiful Korean women today to do a photo shoot for one of the girls. Hany was amazing and her friends came along to help her to make her fell loved and pampered during this process and experience!! Well to tell you the truth it was an amazing afternoon -- all the girls had an absolute blast!! This really made me think of something that is important to us at The Boudoir Cafe: making sure all cultures feel comfortable in their own skin, wherever they are. In this country, we have this great right of freedom, and such a huge amount of acceptance. The final passage of marriage equality shows how we are making leaps of tolerance. But I want to talk about more than tolerance here. I want to talk about cultural pride, loving one's own skin because of the heritage, ethnicity, and history you own in yourself. The Boudoir Cafe -- Hedley, me, and our team -- love seeing girls' cultures show through in their photographs. It is a part of them; and not only that, it is a part of them that makes them…
