Body Liberation Portraits: Xia’s River & Coffeehouse Session

Here’s a look at a recent session with Xia, who’s recently divorced and is reconnecting with her body, confidence, heritage and interests.

Xia loves wild-water swimming, but it was a bit early in the year here for her to enjoy getting in the water for her session, so we chose a beautiful spot next to the Green River for the first part of her session.

For the second part of her session, we headed over to a local coffeehouse that’s similar to one where Xia spends a lot of time.

Far-flung adventures make for amazing portrait and boudoir sessions, but these quiet places and moments are so special, too. It’s lovely seeing clients relax and take deep breaths in environments that are familiar and comforting.
