We had the good fortune of connecting with Violeta Brown and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Violeta, have you ever found yourself in a spot where you had to decide whether to give up or keep going? How did you make the choice?
That is a good question. I will tell you what I believe in. I think it has a lot to do how much you trust your intuition, how badly do you want achieve your goal and how it makes you feel. It has to be a healthy balance though. There are people who give up without even starting, and there are people that would rather die but won’t give up on their goal. Rule of thumb: If it doesn’t make me feel happy and be proud, If it doesn’t make me better If it doesn’t brings me success If it doesn’t make me have an orgazm I Don’t waist your time on it. ….I LET IT GO and move on ….

How you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’m an award winning photographer. My fine art nude work has been exhibited in New York and California art galleries. I have been doing photography since 2007, boudoir style photography since 2010. My love for boudoir photography started from my own experience. Postpartum weight gain led me to low self-esteem, and having my own boudoir session helped me get my self-confidence back. After the session and seeing my pictures, something clicked in me. I finally accepted my new body and fell in love with myself again. It was the most revealing moment of my life. On that day, I told myself “that’s it… this is what I want to do for a living”. Help women heal their broken hearts by falling in love with themselves again.

Has it been an easy path? What were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I knew it wouldn’t be an easy path to become a successful boudoir photographer. But the most challenging experience was leaving my family, all the people I love.

In 2012, my son and I moved to the USA and started everything from scratch, with no proper English, no friends, and no support. When you have faith everything is possible. I made new friends. Build my business. So Here I am… a full-time boudoir photographer – the Boss Babe behind the camera.  I couldn’t be where I am today without the support and love of my family & friends through all those challenging times. I’m proud to say that through what I’ve learned along my journey, I have been able to overcome and push myself to be a better person, daughter, photographer, business owner, and a mom to a handsome smart boy who is my world …

I know there will always be a challenge in being a single mom and running a full-time boudoir photography business. One thing I know for sure no matter what challenges or obstacles face my future, I will never stop healing women and help them fall in love within themselves again.
Tell us about your business?
There are so many misconceptions about boudoir photography… 
Here is what you need to know when it comes to your Boudoir Experience with Violeta Brown Photography:
 – Boudoir is the best gift you can give to yourself and your Significant Other. 
– Numbers do not define you. You’re beautiful & sexy, no matter what size/age you are. Trust me! 
– Boudoir is for EVERY woman. 
– You don’t need ANY type of experience at all. 
– My client’s are not models, they are just like you and me – average, everyday women that you see at the local grocery store. 
Lastly, LET THE CELEBRATION BEGIN!!!! Join our ladies only private FB Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/RevealPortraiture/
 
The boudoir studio is located in The Woodlands TX area —featuring beautiful hardwood floors, exposed brick wall, huge windows with a ton of AMAZING natural light, and so many possibilities. Hair and Makeup is provided in the studio along with a complimentary glass of champagne or mimosa. 
 
I also have a studio wardrobe closet. If lingerie isn’t a client’s thing, she can borrow items from the studio wardrobe collection to wear for her sexy session. There are various styles and sizes ranging from XS-XXXL, and shoes ranging from size 6-10. If a client just wants to supplement her outfit with accessories or shoes from my boudoir studio closet, she can do that too.
We are each uniquely beautiful – even when we don’t feel it. My mission is to show women their beauty, sexiness, strength, resilience, and spirit by providing them a place to be true to their inner sexy selves for a few hours. Allowing them to remember that feeling for a lifetime; with keepsake photos in a luxury photo album.
What sets you apart from competition? 
Only at Violeta Brown Photography Studio, you will feel rush and stress-free. When a client books her session, I lock the whole entire day just for HER, so she will have plenty of time to relax and feel comfortable in her own skin. My luxury, cozy, and one of a kind studio along with the overall experience sets me apart. When clients come in, they know they can trust me. For my clients, boudoir experience is more than a photo session, it is sort of a trust session, transformation, and energy exchange between me and them.

I am hilarious… honestly, we laugh a lot during the session with my clients. Most of my bombshells I had the honor of photographing, calling me a PHOTOGRA-THERAPIST! No complaints here :).  I’m not just a photographer, I am their therapist, biggest cheerleader, and coach.

My job is to reconnect a client’s inner glamorous persona with the real version of themselves. It’s all about who THEY are in their personal space. Between womanhood, temper tantrum time, mom time, bath time, wife time, and dinner time, they have lost sight of what a precious and unique gem they are. I follow the mood of my client and capture her in the way she imagines herself from classy boudoir, risqué, and provocative poses to kinky style.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
During the day I love the local museum district. The art museums are some of my favorite places to visit and get lost for hours in. I also love live events in that same area of town, like plays and theater. In the evening though I let my wilder side out and really enjoy going to live music events or pubs with live bands. I enjoy listening to the music and getting up and shaking my booty while having drinks with great friends.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Huge Shoutout to My parents. My daddy taught me what unconditional love is and always be honest within myself. My mom taught me how to fight for what I want. My son- every day helps me grow as a mom. He is my biggest motivator and cheerleader. Well don’t get me wrong he is not an angel he drives me nuts sometimes too …..

Shoutout to Tatiana Cossinerio, my bestie and best life coach in the town. I don’t know what I would do without her. She is my shoulder to lean on.

Shout out to Thyra Clagg founder of WGNO Woodlands Girls Night Out networking group https://www.facebook.com/groups/WoodlandsGirlsNightOut/. Thyra and boss babes from this group helped me with my business success tremendously. When you are a boudoir photographer word of mouth and referrals plays a huge role in your business.

Shoutout to the most amazing Leader and founder of Texas Gulf Coast Hispanic Chamber Of Commerce. Dr Carlos Sanchos He is a great business coach and mentor.

Shout out to all my clients, followers and members of my Boudoir Group ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/RevealPortraiture/ ). Thank you for your trust, love and support bombshells!!!

Every person I have met in my life shaped me into the woman I became today and helped me with my success!
