Hittin' you with that REAL TALK! | Sebastian, Florida Nichole Marie Boudoir

Okay, HOLD UP..

You know what most women are really, really good at? PUTTING EVERYONE ELSE FIRST! My mantra used to be "me first" until recently...

I lollygagged my way through Target shopping for cute clothes, shoes, etc. with every intention of spending money on MYSELF and as I’m unloading my cart at checkout.. I noticed that I had shit for my boyfriend and my pups and nothing for my own damn self. LIKE WHAT?! 

Also, tell me how I can spend $20 on dinner, but can talk myself out of spending $20 on a cute shirt for myself? YIKES. 

Anyone else… or am I alone here?

So hear me out… no seriously.. read it twice, print that shit out, memorize it, do what you have to do to achieve these goals: 

  1. Put yourself at the top of your “to-do” list EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.  Bc why did we ever stop that?! 
  2. Self love is NOT being selfish, it’s important. So practice it!  CAN I GET AN AMEN!?!? Haha.
  3. BELIEVE IN YOUR INNER BEYONCE. You are a badass. 

Think it. Believe it. Feel it. BAM!

You've spent too long spoiling everyone else, now it's time to take care of yo' damn self! 

So even though it's four months into the year and half your New Year's resolutions probably fell out the window (I feel you girl, mine too), let's do ourselves the favor and devote the rest of this year to loving ourselves.

Self-love is important, boo. I promise you.

XOXO, Court

STOP. DROP. CLOSET SHOP. | Sebastian, Florida Nichole Marie Boudoir

Hello lovey, 

Okay, so this is one for the bookmark especially if you are waiting on deck for a session. 

STOP. DROP. CLOSET SHOP. 

Yeah girl, you read it right. Closet, as in YOUR closet. Raid that shit..before you go swiping cards left and right.

Although it is the perfect excuse to get some retail therapy, you can spend it on your nails, a cut n’ color, or maybe even on drinks for your GNO after your badass session. (you’ll already be lookin’ smoookin’, so why not?!) 

Alright, so what the hell is in your closet thats “boudoir suitable” is probably what your thinking right now.  So where shall I even begin?! 

  • Bra & Panties Set. Don’t shrug like “ehh," even the most simplistic pair of black, lacy undies are super sexy. (especially if you drop your top and slip on some “fuck me pumps," thank me at your reveal, hehe.) 
 bra and panty outfit ideas with posing 
  • Booty Shorts. Oooookay, we all have some booty shorts lying around somewhere. Dig em’ out, try them on, yank them half way up your ass.. now check that shit out in the mirror. Hot damn, can I get a yes ma’am?! PACK THEM. I can’t wait to see! 
 booty shots with jean shorts 
  • Blazer. C'mon I know if you're a boss babe then there has to be at least one blazer in that closet. BRING IT!! Paired with some cute undies and thats hot hot hot
 blazer outfits with posing 
  • Dress Pants. Are you a hardworking boss babe? Have a few dress slacks hanging around somewhere!? There’s nothing like a hot business look in front of these lenses. #freethenipple 
  • Oversized Sweaters/T-shirts. Comfy is sexy. A big sweater and some long socks.. yeah girl, you’ll be lookin’ good! 
 oversized sweaters/tees bed posing 
  • Body suit. Body suits are flattering on every body type!! 
 body suits/ Teddys with posing 
  • White Tank.  WET NIPS, HERE WE COME!! (but I’m sure you saw that one coming!) 
 z
  • Body Jewelry/ Tattoos. Sooooo, if your cool with strippin’ it down, then body jewelry is a GREAT accessory to dress yourself with.  Jewelry just has a power to make you feel as if you are unleashing that inner sparkle, ya followin’ me? Are you tatted up? Bare it all and lets show off your ink! 
 body jewelry and tats    
  • BIRTHDAY SUIT- Shut the closet door for this one. You rock this one Every. Damn. Day. so why not in front of the lens?! Document that shit, girly. 
 nudes with white sheets and posing 

You rock your beautiful bod everyday so learn to embrace who YOU are inside and out. 

Graphic tees, flannels, some nip pasties,thigh highs, and high heels are all some more options you might have laying around somewhere. Look harder & put your thinking cap on. 

 oversized flannels with wet nips and posing 

Fishnets & High Heels are also a lot of fun to play around in. You may be thinking "oh hell no" but just take a look and have a little faith in that hot bod of yours. SEEEXAAYY. 

 fishnets with posing 
 high heel with posing 

You don’t need to spend $50-$80 on one piece of lingerie. Even if you do feel you still need to shop for a few items, then check your Walmart, Ross, Marshalls or Target! 

Alright, so now you see why this is super easy to do?! Literally pack shit from your closet and show up. WE HANDLE THE REST. 

TRUST THE PROCESS!! YOU ARE GOING TO KILL YOUR SESSHH AND I CANT WAIT TO WITNESS IT. 

Tata for now, we shall chat soon! :) 

Xoxo, court

Who is NMB's new Associate Photog?! | Sebastian, Florida Nichole Marie Boudoir

Who is NMB's new Associate Photog?! | Sebastian, Florida Nichole Marie Boudoir

Hello lovely,  

I’m Courtney, Court, Ricca, (all the above and probably others that I would totally turn around to), NMB’s new associate photog..in training at least. I am a proud dog mom of two beautiful pitbulls, Sydney and Zeus.

 black body suit boudoir furniture less posing 

I am in a fun-loving relationship with the man of my dreams. I was lucky enough to find this hunk during my sophomore year of high school and we recently just purchased our first house;

so if you hang around long enough, you’ll be here for when he “puts a ring on it” and probably a shit ton of “court's engagement boudoir sesh” pics.. (;  

 red bodysuit posing furnitureless on brick wall 

So why NMB? Well, if you know Nichole, then really the question is why not NMB? But there’s something about showing women how beautiful they really are that just SCREAMS

“Courtney, do this every fucking day!” 

Also, not to mention that I have been blessed to meet so many intriguing women with their own stories to share; and I have already had the pleasure of making some dahhlingg new friends!!

Before I started at NMB, Nichole told me I had to do a shoot so I could see what it feels like to be on the other end of the lens… and HOLY SHIT..

Let me just say that I would do that EVERY. DAMN. DAY.

 black underwear and bras with garter on bed posing 

The shooting experience alone was one for the books!! Something about prancing around half naked, in a beautiful studio, with someone screaming how hot you are every two seconds, THAT alone just needs to be experienced more than once! AND THEN you leave and reflect on all the yoga-like poses you just accomplished while you soak in a luscious bath bomb with a glass of wine. 

BEST. FUCKING. DAY. EVER.  

 black body suit, couch posing ideas. 

But I do have to say that your reveal.. ohmygod, THE REVEAL.. Ahh!! its definitely going to be one for the same book on the same page BC HOLY MOLY. As I anxiously waited for the slideshow..I chewed off all my nails, turned a nervous red, and drank three glasses of champ (ain’t no shame in this champagne campaign). The photos start playing, and instantly all those nerves turned to relief and this “I’m a badass babe” confidence came rushing in, phrases like “holy fuck”, “omg”, and “ahh! thats me!!” were the only things I could say.  Seriously. I’m going to stop there because I could go on forever.

If you haven’t done it, GIRL.. as Nike would say “just do it” bc honestly, why the fuck not?!  You deserve all those feels, don’t deprive yourself. 

So after all is said and done, one of my badass booty shots hangs in my bathroom, high and mighty as a 20x30 glossy metal print and shines in all its glory! hahaha.  Why? Bc I see that shit every day and I am reminded of how sexy I AM and ALWAYS will be.

p.s. it reminds the bf to put a ring on it quicker! ;)

So thats me, a new member to NMB, ready to show YOU, that YOU do indeed “rule the world” and should start embracing it as well as wearing your “watch out world, I’m a beautiful badass” attitude every day. 

 nude white sheets with body chain bed posing 

OH, but wait. You should also know, the beach is my happy place (I know so cliché) , I can take down a whole roll of raw cookie dough..

& I feel strongly that any problem can be solved with a little tequila ;) 

XOXOXO, Court

My top 2 requested boudoir shots | Sebastian, Florida Boudoir Photographer

It never fails- I start talking to a woman about booking a boudoir shoot with me and she says "oh gosh, I don't wear lingerie.. I don't even know where I'd start." 

This is SUCH a big topic that I actually have plans to create an entire look book all about what to bring to your boudoir session with non traditional wardrobe ideas, lingerie, nudes, etc...  but for now, let's discuss the TOP 2 poses/shots I get asked to do.

Both are SUPER simple, and can be done in a variety of ways to fit each client's style and body type. 

THE WET TANK/TEE BOUDOIR SHOT

 Wet tank boudoir shot

Everyone has boobies. Doesn't matter if your thin, curvy, rockin A's or D's, perky.. whatever you got goin on... this look is simple, cheap, and works for everyone! Tank: Target- $4.99 Heather gray panties: Victoria's Secret- $7.99 Total outfit cost: $13 The result: A little peek at the goods without being completely topless.

THE DENIM SHORTS BOOTY SHOT

Ok so this one is sometimes a little trickier but it also works for almost everyone! I've shot this look on 20 year olds and also 50 year olds!! Yes, 50. years. old. and rockin' denim shorts and a booty shot. High waisted shorts are super sexy and in right now, but low rise can work too. The key to making this work is: you've got to be able to hike up enough of the denim to show off your booty. Less is more my friend, especially for this look.

There are only 2 dates left on my calendar before Christmas cut off. If you've got a boudoir session on your mind for a Christmas gift, you better get on it! Use the box below and contact me for more info.

Back to school, back to you - part 2! | Sebastian, Florida Boudoir Photographer

JUST when I got into the whole school thing (that glorious time of the year when moms all over the nation celebrate regaining their freedom), what happens? A frickin hurricane hits and my kiddos are home with me for 11. straight. days. 

Just typing that makes my eye start to twitch a little.

I love love love my kids with all that I have in me, but 11 days of non stop “Mamma? Mommy? Where are you?? Are you POOPING in there??” had me feeilin’ like a walking time bomb ready to explode my 1 ounce of my remaining patience all over the floor. 

This week, the kids went back to school which meant 3 things. 

-The routine started back up (and I’m a total TYPE A personality so routines are my THANG GIRL!)

- Bedtime at 7:30 isn’t a struggle anymore because the boys were literally falling asleep while we read books.

- Extensions and makeup became a part of my normal daily routine (can I get an AMEN for feeling #sexyAF??) 

That last part.. yea the part about feeling sexy AF? When was the last time YOU used that term to describe yourself? Us moms (I say us because most of my clients ARE), we need ME TIME. We need quiet bubble baths, and wine, and scrolling pinterest for a new recipe time. SHHH time. Which is totally not happening with 3 kids running around for 11. straight. days. at the Rea house. 

But now that we’re back to school, that means you can get back to YOU. In fact, you could start off working towards feeling sexyAF by checking out my Top 5 (almost free) tips for instantly boosting your self esteem. 

Or... maybe you're feeling like really sassy, and want to reward yourself with something super special..even a little pampering maybe. In THAT case, click here to read about the Nichole Marie Boudoir Experience

Most of my clients are moms themselves. They get up, get their kids ready for school, rush everyone out the door, and fly to their session with wrinkled lingerie and a frazzled look on their face as they race through the studio door. But you know what?

I have a GREAT steamer and mimosas waiting for them as soon as they get there.

I'm sure you can guess what happens. 1 hour into their experience, those same moms who were flying out the door eating a half a peanut butter bagel just to get something down on the way to the student drop off line are totally at ease. They're giggling, taking selfies, and filling us in on how they "hid" their session from their hubby. 

SEBASTIAN, FLORIDA BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER NICHOLE MARIE -6.jpg

I help them forget, if only for a few hours, the PTA meeting and the science project and the grocery list that's getting longer as the day goes on.

During each session, I help you REMEMBER that sending kids back to school and getting back to YOU isn't a crime. It's NECESSARY. 

I mean HELLOOOOO. Look at those LEGS! I'm sorry but no selfie is going to do those legs justice! It just won't happen.

All you have to do is run to Target, grab a super inexpensive white tank top, and show up (with or without panties!) and I swear, I will do the rest for you! No matter how frazzled or busy you think you are. YOU. NEED. A. BREAK.

BUBBLES AND BOUDOIR - A UNIQUE BACHELORETTE EXPERIENCE | VERO BEACH FLORIDA PHOTOGRAPHER

 BRIDE AND BRIDESMAIDS IN TULLE SKIRTS AND BRALETTES

If you're planning a bachelorette party that doesn't involve bar hopping and you live in the Sebastian/Vero Beach Florida area, you might be out of luck. Having lived here for almost 15 years, I can tell you that unfortunately there isn't much for the 20 something year old female to do, especially if you're not a night on the town type of girl. 

You were probably searching google for "unique bachelorette party ideas" and want to do something that's more exciting than painting pottery, but doesn't involve raunchy shaped cakes and lollypops. There's got to be a middle ground, right? 

Yes girl, you've found it! It's called Bubbles & Boudoir, and it's a fun, chic bachelorette party experience that is totally nontraditional.

Imagine a twinkling light curtain, soft color palette, a talented hair and makeup team, and a pretty space for you and your friends to spend the day being beautiful together before having group and individual portraits taken.

When you arrive at the studio in Sebastian, you'll have some time to lounge around and sip champagne while everyone has their hair and makeup done by my team.

The studio provides tulle skirts and bralettes (pictured here) that you may use for your photos, or you're welcome to bring your own outfits.

Some girls would rather have a sexy session in bodysuits and fishnets, or maybe stage a pillow fight in cheekies and tank tops. Your session is totally customizable!
