This book is fantastic! Susan is touching on so many things that will take my beauty and boudoir business to a whole new level. She is putting to words things that I have been thinking and feeling for years...but I didn't realize I wasn't alone! I am only two chapters in and I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to photograph women and have more of an impact than just pretty pictures.

I'll come back and update when I finish the book...but there is a LOT of great info...so it might be a while! :-)

I have many, many boudoir books. As a long-time boudoir photographer, I love books even when I feel familiar with most of the information presented. This book is different from every other one on my bookshelf. Susan presents an incredibly balanced view of the art of boudoir, as opposed to focusing on solely the technical or the emotional components of this career. She not only touches on, but deeply explores, the emotional, transformative experiences that we give our clients. She also explores the technical side of shooting in a way that even the most seasoned professional is bound to walk away with new information and an expanded set of tools to draw from. She also reaches into the "starving artist" mindset and discusses the business aspects in depth as well.

I am incredibly impressed with Susan, not only as a writer and as a photographer, but as a woman empowering other women as a true passion. This is a book that will never leave my shelves.

I was fortunate enough to have read this book in its early draft and was immediately enchanted.

This GORGEOUS book is a work of art in itself. It amply combines the technical, artistic and psychological aspects of boudoir to create meaningful work for our clients. Susan masters all of these components so well, through her years as an Organizational Psychologist and an accomplished photographer. With every page turn, you will find beautiful imagery and contextual advice, optimizing the impact of what we, as boudoir photographers, can do.

I love this book, and it is a very treasured work on the shelf in my studio that I am proud for all to see.
