I met Catalina a couple years ago to discuss how we can bring body-positivity and feminine power to our communities in Israel, so when she decided to sign up for our Yom Ahava boudoir mini-sessions, I knew that she would be an incredible addition to the group of women. It never hurts to have a women's psychologist and coach on board! ;)
When discussing her upcoming session, she mentioned that she was going to be 35 weeks pregnant! I absolutely love maternity boudoir because there is a element of divinity and love intertwined with every single image.
I've always seen Catalina as a goddess with an permeating feminine and beautiful energy. To be able to photograph her during her pregnancy was a blessing and artistic pleasure!
Catalina said to me, "I love sensuality, my body and the beauty of all of it. It's being amazing the process to connect and integrate my sensual + wild energy into my new cycle of motherhood."
The connection she had with her body and her breath was a beautiful thing to witness and be a part of. Even though the session was only a half-hour long, there was a meditative feel to our flow.
This is one of my favorites...
Sigh. Catalina, you are everything! These pictures give me so much inspiration and joy.
As women with similar values, I know that our paths will continue to cross. We've already discussed her next boudoir session, and I am so looking forward to it!
