boudoir photography built from fine art & the therapeutic power of the creative process


Styled and shot by artist-photographer Kaitlyn Stoddard-Carter, Equivalence represents a new method of boudoir photography—one built from fine art.

Equivalence seeks to combat negative messages from society by bringing you an experience of body positivity and allowing you to be a part of a carefully curated session that celebrates your quirks, curves and story. The resulting photos are the equivalent of your empowerment, beauty, confidence, self-care and love—whatever you seek will be reflected back to you.

Whether as a gift to yourself or a loved one, if you’re interested in adding your story to this ongoing movement towards positive body image please contact Kaitlyn to view examples and discuss pricing.

People are the equivalent—the sum—of our most profound life experiences.
We’re equivalent to our happiest moments of joy; we’re equivalent to our lowest points. It’s this journey, from the highest peaks to the lowest valleys, that weathers our bodies, forms our opinions, and shapes who we are. It’s a journey worth celebrating.
— Kaitlyn Stoddard-Carter

"When I first heard of this shoot... this idea of loving your body no matter what...I loved it! I was totally supportive and thought it was a cool way for women to feel empowered and to embrace themselves and to love themselves. But that was before I decided to be a part. It's different knowing you're the one that's going to be in front of the camera.     I am not skinny, and I do not look like a celebrity. I was really nervous, but I decided to go for it. I got half naked and I felt terrified and free and embarrassed and beautiful all at the same time. It was one of the best experiences of my life because I truly felt beautiful and not because I look amazing in underwear- I assure you Gisele will not be out of a job any time soon- but because I was just me. It was raw and real and honest and true. And THAT is the kind of woman I want to be. This shoot allowed me the freedom to be that: just me."

“I always loved the idea of doing a boudoir shoot. It seemed like this fantastic opportunity to feel beautiful and feminine but also totally authentic. At least that is what I believed for every other woman. When I really thought about it though I was terrified. I'm not a "classic" beauty. Usually I'm told I'm "pretty, for a big girl". I wanted to do these photos because I wanted to prove to myself and to other "big girls" that we are beautiful, period. During the shoot, I felt beautiful and feminine. Now looking at the photos I still feel beautiful and feminine but I also feel real. The photographs are all me with no shame because I am beautiful."
