The Rumors are True....

We have had a lot of our clients asking and hearing rumors that Christian Pleva Images may be expanding a bit....and we are happy to announce the rumors are true!!! 

For the last three years in Boston we have been focusing our business purely on the love of weddings and engagement photography and as we listened to our clients we saw a void in our offerings.  Many of our brides were asking for boudoir sessions as both gifts for their husbands to be as well as just for themselves.  At the time, I have to admit that I thought it may be a fad in the market.  That is, until I did a session myself and saw the beauty and empowerment that can come from the session.  I, like many women I know, are super critical anytime I look at a photo of myself.  "My arms look fat", "I look like I have a double chin", "I used to be so much skinnier", etc...
As I looked further into the art of boudoir and what can come out of a session I began to feel stronger and stronger about what it can do for a woman.  The confidence, empowerment and sexiness a woman can feel, once she lets herself feel vulnerable and comfortable in her own skin.  That, paired with purposeful posing and styling of a shoot to make her look and feel her best, can have fantastic results!  When a woman sits down and sees herself for the first time as many others see her everyday, as beautiful in every way, it is an incredibly powerful moment.  To look without judgement and say, "Wow I look amazing!", I believe every woman should feel that.  Whether it is for a gift, tomark an accomplishment or age, or whether it is just for herself, I know first hand how the experience can change the way you look at yourself. 

After discovering this passion for helping each woman feel this I decided I needed pursue it!  Now in a full service boudoir experience, I will finally have the opportunity to go through this journey with our brides to be, as well as new and past clients!  I am so blessed to have an amazing fiancee that has taught me so much about photography, even when I wasn't sure I wanted to learn, and is so supportive in my quest to expand and do this on my own.  It is such an exciting time to be growing the Christian Pleva Images name, while also doing something I feel so passionate about and being able to have that independence without leaving what I already love to do!  Thank you Christian for pushing me along and helping me to jump into this venture!  I wouldn't be able to do this without the love, support and teachings you have already given me and I know I will be leaning on you even more as I jump in fully!  Ok...enough with the mushiness....

For our current and past clients we will be offering a 10% discount on full boudoir experience packages when booked before April 30th.  I can't wait to be on this journey with each and every unique and gorgeous woman ready to go on it with me!
