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.
"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."
