Coming Soon: The VIXEN Effect

Tucked away (not so very neatly) behind red velvet ropes and heavy curtains this photographer has been toiling away. Don’t be shy, come on in and have a sneak peak of what is to come!

The Makings of

I’m not sure how other boudoir and glamour photographers get their start, but when I unlocked the key to my powers of feminine sexuality I became completely enamoured! Don’t misunderstand, I was no prude before but I was admittedly stuck in some areas of life. I thought I already knew what sexy really was and could even be sexy myself on occasion. But I knew there was something I couldn’t put my finger on that seemed to be holding back and I had tried doing every thing by the book so to speak.

My concept of sexuality and how to use it wasn't wrong, but only a small narrow vision of the whole that we see today in everyday society.

I couldn’t even blog for Melody Rae Photography because I had nothing new I felt like saying that was truly worth saying! Well hold on to your panties because when it comes to my new venture I have Notebooks chock full and am bursting at the seems with EXCITEMENT!

Little did I know that being better connected to my own sexuality was a source of super energy and strength to be tapped into which caused me to have a huge, positive mental shift!  It made me see the entire world in a new BEAUTIFUL light and most importantly myself and my body!

 

Who knew that something so small from my past had shaped my idea of what it meant to be a good person and what society expected of me as a woman? By cutting myself off from my true raw sexual self to conform to those standards only stunted personal growth in other extremely important areas of my life.

 

“It is clear to me that when we are disengaged from any part of ourselves, including our sexuality, our hearts and bodies close in response. When we close, we stop evolving, and we no longer live and love to our fullest potential. Our lives lack creativity and joy, spontaneity and humor. As a culture, we have supported this unfortunate process in each other by ignoring the realities of our sexual instincts. Consequently, we are disconnected from the core of our sexual selves.”

–Marianne Brandon

Soon followed personal studies in psychology, sexolgy, and feminist studies. Posing workshops, and hours upon hours of new Photography techniques and learning ensued. Friends, family, and my own partner could drastically see the difference it made for me. Thus left the question of how I could continue doing the photography that I loved and some how combine my new love for feminine sexual empowerment.

And so was born, The Vixen Effect!


While I consider it my very own baby, this has been a labor of love from so many bodacious enterprising women here in the Netherlands that it wouldn’t be possible with out! Many whom I hope we’ll see as our very own Vixen inspirations from time to time. From hair and make up, to styling, fashion, logo, name and brand design…even catering of some of the sexiest bites you’ll ever nibble on!

 

We work together to provide a liberating, luxury beauty and boudoir experience. Helping women feel confident, beautiful, and sexy in their own bodies because we know that when a woman is better connected with her feminine and sensual side she can have a more compassionate understanding of her sexual self. We celebrate sexy in a variety of women of all shapes and sizes, styles, and backgrounds.

 

I am not  just another boudoir photographer because I hold a fancy camera and say I am while aimlessly photographing pretty models to show off my talent (no more than a blogger would give great writing on the type of their laptop) but it’s in the why!

I photograph because I think my ability to imagine and envision the types of scenes a woman might want to convey are both beautiful and valuable! They deserve attention and kindness and to feel as beautiful on the inside as the outside. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve had fellow photographers snap photos of me that well…just didn’t capture or flatter me at all! Maybe you can relate?

 

Thus one of my main purposes/ fixations is to show beauty (real, genuine, true beauty) through it (of any kind it may be) as much as possible and help people discover the ultimate visual (guilty) pleasures often forgotten today. I want to help show women how they really want to be seen, whether it’s for their partner and loved one or just for themselves!

As Vixens we believe everybody and every Body has it’s own unique story. And what story doesn’t have a conflict or two? We want to know where you are in your story to help give you the most fulfilling and fun boudoir experience. We as women have so many different sides. Sometimes sweet, flirty, serious, beautiful…even a little naughty can be nice.
