Simply Luminescent Boudoir & Portrait Studio in NW Ohio.
In July of 2019 I decided to host a Body Positive Event that also showed off our local business babes.
We sold out our tickets and kept it relatively exclusive. Only females and female led businesses were invited because I wanted the participants to be able to wear lingerie. The gorgeous Shady Brook Acres of Napoleon Ohio was the hosting spot for our event. A gorgeous pond, bridge, gazebo, cabin and of course Anne is a dear to be around. Bonafide Customs also donated some gorgeous cars and trucks for us to use as well.
The female led business girls were rock stars. It was unbelievably hot that day! These girls had to fight to keep their products safe but it was so much fun for my first ever event hosting. I learned a lot for example, don't pick July for outside events unless it is dark haha!
We had 50 ladies attend and each one got 1 portrait from their shoot with me for attending. The entire point was for the attendee's to step out of their comfort zones, get a lesson in being body positive, and get a few moments alone with me and my camera. These ladies also got a prize from each of the female led businesses that attended but they also got gift vouchers to shoot a full session with me. I cannot wait til the next time I host a big event and hope you'll join!
Privacy has always been our top priority so only those that agreed to share will be included.
