About Ariana Rodriguez Photography Boudoir

My work didn’t used to look like this.

I used to put my clients in a flood of perfect lighting, in a “cute” outfit, doing a “cute” pose. I kept us safe— tucked away within our comfort zones, neither of us going beyond what we knew. And that was great, for a while (2 years to be exact).

Until I realized that nothing was changing— there was no growth, no breakthroughs, no transformation.

I couldn’t bear to photograph anyone in a “perfect” way, anymore. Your life, your story, the way you see the world... it isn’t perfect. I don’t want you to look at your portraits and see yourself pretending. I want you to see your images and say “That’s me, doing the thing I couldn’t do. It’s me, thriving in my vulnerability. It’s me, LIVING.”

SO, yeah. We are going to do poses that seem scary (trust me, they aren’t at all). You are going to scroll past this on your feed and think “Oh, not me! I could never do that!” And that babe, is the EXACT reason we are doing it. Because YOU CAN. You think you’ve lost this person because of the kids you’ve had. Lost her because of the weight you’ve gained or lost. Lost her because of the people who disappointed you and made you feel unworthy... you haven’t lost her. She is within you.

The reason you hire me, is because in a space where you feel so vulnerable, I am with you... guiding you, cheering you on, seeing you differently. You hire me because I know what in the hell I am doing. You hire me because I’m going to push you... because I care TOO MUCH about you to let you stay in the prison of comfortability that you’ve built for yourself.

Nothing you want is there. Everything you want is on the other side. 💋
