Aaron | Boudoir Noir | Male Boudoir | New England Boudoir Photographer | Mon Chari Boudoir

Male Boudoir…. Dudoir. HA I hate that term. Its not something I typically offer. I have only ever photographed men in their undies during couple’s boudoir sessions or the occasional inappropriate groomsmen. LOL I had photographed a couple of men at a Boudoir Camp/Workshop- Camp Do More over the summer and really loved it. I am so used to working with the female form and accentuating curves and Men …are entirely different. After some friends mentioned their totally gorgeous friend who would be a perfect model for me.. I couldn’t resist! Cue Aaron! I think he did a pretty great job for a first time model. ;)

2018 | Year in Review | Shelby Chari Photography | Mon Chari Boudoir

2018 was a year for the books that’s for sure. I started the year off relocating not only my family but my business! After building Shelby Chari Photography from the ground up in the Northern Indiana area for nearly 8 years- We packed up and moved to Western Massachusetts. I was apprehensive, scared, nervous, excited, delighted…pretty much every emotion you can think of but it has ended up being the BEST adventure.

I traveled back and forth 6 times in 2018 for some of the most beautiful weddings and got to squeeze in so many amazing portrait sessions at the same time. I am literally SO thankful to my Indiana clients who have stuck with me throughout this process and who scheduled their lives around ME. Literally insane. I am so honored to keep capturing your love. Now to my Massachusetts clients- You guys! You welcomed me with open arms and I am SO thankful to those of you who took a chance on me.

Being in New England definitely has its perks- We’ve been able to travel all around taking in our new home. We visited New York City a couple of times and fell in LOVE with the city. I even got to travel out of the country this year to the Do More Photographers Boudoir Camp- Camp Do More where I met so many amazing boudoir photographers and friends. We have made SO many new friends along the way who have made this place feel like home.

In 2018 I photographed 52 BEAUTIFUL boudoir clients, 37 AMAZING families & portraits, and 15 UNFORGETTABLE wedding days.

To those of you who graced my camera in 2018, THANK YOU. There are simply no words for how grateful I am for all of you.

To those of you who will grace my camera in 2019, I CANT WAIT!!

XOXO
Shelby
