Welcome to the Dallas's new Boudoir Blog!
Thank you all for joining in the relaunch for Wonderland Boudoir’s blog!
WHO ARE YOU?!
I am Korin, the principal photographer of Dallas boudoir studio Wonderland Boudoir. I have loved photography since I was a little girl. One of my first memories was going through my dad’s things when we first moved to Texas and picking up his camera. I took the lens off his Pentax 35MM and examined the inside. I loved the complexity of the camera and since then I was hooked. By the time I reached high school I signed up for photojournalism and I was hooked with the art of photography. There was no turning back from there.
I loved working in the darkroom. The idea of rolling and developing my own film felt like a safe haven to me. It was the place where I felt at peace and I just enjoyed working with my hands to create a beautiful image. After graduating high school I attended university and didn’t pick up a camera the entire time… but one never forgets their first love. Then in 2008 or 2009 I purchased my first Nikon DSLR and never looked back. Since then I started a successful photography company, UrbanJunglePhotography, which focuses on headshots, family, engagements, and weddings. Then in 2014 I established the brand Wonderland Boudoir.
WHY BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY?
When one is first getting into paid session with photography many people will take whatever gigs comes to them. Honestly, I think that‘s a good way to go about it because, in my experience, I knew after two years of trying to figure out my strong suit, that I loved working one on one with people.
During those two years of finding my groove I would have women reaching out to me asking if I did boudoir. As a shy person by nature I often backed away from it and declined offers. Then one day I decided that I was going to try this boudoir thing after so many requests.
I was nervous at first because you are seeing a woman at their most intimate state. However, after my first session I knew this is where I wanted to go. For me, it was easier to work one on one in a private setting. I enjoyed instructing ladies on how to pose to get the pictures they wanted. Unlike a lot of my family and engagement work, there aren’t a number of people around so my client doesn’t get distracted. It’s just a one on one session with the client and the photographer. Plus, as an introvert I like being able to build a bond with someone without having a ton of people around distracting either one of us from the end goal, beautiful photos you can cherish forever.
What I love the most are the reactions women have after they see their photos. Every time I see a smile on their face, get a gushing email, or an elated call it makes me love what I do more and more. We as women are taught to really scrutinize our bodies and how we look based on the media’s standard of beauty. The idea of beauty is not a cookie cutter mentality. Each one of us are different, therefore there is no way the standard of beauty can be the same for all of us. Our goal at Wonderland Boudoir is for clients to celebrate THEIR version of beauty. Forget society. Forget the status quo. Forget the doubt in the back of your head. Define what beauty means for you and got for it!
