A Chat with Neka Rae Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I’m drawn to raw, organic emotion. The mood I like to paint in my art is ethereal, nostalgic, and expressive. The human spirit needs to be documented in its true essence. My clients can rekindle self-discovery when they view themselves through my lens, creating evocative imagery.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
It took four years of seven to really know why I started, and this was when I discovered boudoir imagery. Boudoir imagery is much more than “sexy” photos. I am able to empower a woman’s spirit by documenting and capturing [her] strength in my images. That is why I do this, to empower others!
What do you love most about your job?
There is no other feeling than seeing the look on my clients face or getting that phone call when they see their images for the first time, thanking me. I love what I do because I get to empower women. I am able to show them their true beauty and remind them of their confidence.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
That would be when I received a phone call from a client crying. She was so happy with her images that she couldn’t believe that was her in the photos. She thanked me 1,000 times for reminding her that she is beautiful. She quotes: “You gave me back my confidence.”
