Meet Bekah - Owner & Photographer

 

I'm a wife, a mom, a middle-child, and a photographer. I've been in photography for over 20 years, and I've photographed everything! For a long time I concentrated my photography on families and landscape, but really found my passion when I found Boudoir Photography. 

As a woman and busy mom struggling with weight issues, I needed to find something to make me feel good in the body I'm in. I had heard of Boudoir Photography before but because I didn't like my body as it was I was afraid to have a session. I came across a photographer who was advertising her Boudoir Photography as a way of accepting and celebrating the body you're in. I contacted her immediately for a session. I just knew she would be able to help me accept my new body and find a way to feel like myself again.

This was when I decided I needed to do this for others. I know most women find themselves at a point in their lives where they feel like they've lost themselves. I decided to help as many people as I could through my photography. I changed my focus to Boudoir Photography and threw myself in as far as I could go. I studied everything I could get my hands on, and I attended as many seminars as I could find before I took my first client. I've studied with some of the top boudoir photographers in the country, and I've built my business with my focus on helping as many people as I can. I am always attending conferences and workshops to continue my growth as a Boudoir Photographer and serve my clients in the best way I can. Boudoir has been my only focus in my photography for a few years now, and I graduated as a Certified Professional Boudoir Photographer in August 2018. 

I love to empower my clients and help them reclaim their beauty, find confidence and acceptance for who they are, and celebrate wherever they are in life. For every paid Session, I donate to a local organization called Women's Advocates. This organization helps women and children leave a life of abuse and get back on their feet by providing shelter, therapy and education. 

Thanks for stopping by and reading about me!

Meet Hannah - Studio Manager & Lead Stylist

 

My name is Hannah and I am the hair and makeup artist for New Light Boudoir. I have been in the business since 2012, and have worked with New Light Boudoir since it first opened. I have always loved the idea of boudoir but didn’t fully understand it, and when Bekah asked me to join her team as a stylist I jumped at the opportunity. 

 

My favorite thing about doing hair is creating connections and helping people feeling confident and beautiful. When I started to work with Bekah I truly got to understand the importance of seeing yourself and acceptance of yourself. The beauty of boudoir is finding self love and owning your story. I feel so lucky and blessed to be a part of that journey for the women who come into our studio. 

 

My mission is to help you feel strong, confident and beautiful for your session so we can help you see yourself in a New Light.  I am so thankful and honored you are here and ready to take on a new adventure. See you in the studio!

Our Studio - New Light Boudoir

New Light Boudoir was officially opened by Bekah in 2018. Since then we have photographed over 100 Boudoir Clients in our studio and on location.

 

Located just outside of Downtown Stillwater, MN, our studio is conveniently located off Hwy 36 and Greeley St. Our expert, all female staff are pros at working with people from all backgrounds, of all sizes, colors and ages. Our favorite thing about what we do is getting to know each and every one of our clients, and being part of their journey. 

 

We offer full, professional hair styling and makeup application from one of our licensed stylists right in our studio. We schedule enough time in each appointment for clients to have a makeover before the photo session without having to make multiple stops. Our clients love not having to worry about traveling through Minnesota weather with their makeovers.

 

We have multiple studio sets to ensure there's something for everyone and any outfit our clients bring. Our studio provides a private, cozy, luxurious atmosphere made to add something special to the photos without taking focus off the main subject - YOU!

 

We also have a "No Wait Policy", which means we schedule enough time with each session to go over your photos right after we are done! You don't have to wait to see how beautiful you are!

 

We offer virtual tours of the studio, by appointment. If you'd like to schedule a tour and have a chance to meet us, you can drop us an email or send a text to schedule a time.
