What motivated you to want to do a boudoir session?
Originally as a gift for my boyfriend, but as the shoot approached I realized I needed the shoot for myself and missing self confidence more than anything.
What were you most nervous/excited/worried about coming into your session?
I was going through a very big self hate period and was constantly critiquing my legs, stomach rolls, etc. I had a general sense of anxiety about if I would look remotely attractive!
How did you feel during your session, was there any part that stood out the most to you and why?
Relaxed. Meeting Kay when I first walked in made me feel at ease. She has this warm cheery disposition that makes you feel comfortable. Michele joined us not long after and I felt immediate relief meeting her face to face. The boudoir Facebook group is so full of love and empowerment and Michele brings that to the shoot. During the shoot I felt more comfortable and relaxed and got to enjoy every second of it til the end.
What were your thoughts/feelings leaving your session?
I have told everyone I have shared my experience with that this was by far the best self love experience I have ever done for myself. For what I thought was going to make my boyfriend smile, made me smile ear to ear walking away from the session. I felt incredible. I felt strong. I felt beautiful. I didn’t care that my body isn’t ideal or that I have cellulite everywhere all of that was behind me after the shoot.
Any other things you want to share about your experience to other ladies who may be wondering what a boudoir session is like?
Don’t hesitate or wait for the “right time”. Do it now. Do it for yourself. You deserve it! You are a god damn rockstar, you deserve to feel like one during this shoot. You’ll fall in love with things you criticized before on yourself. Trust me. I have tears in my eyes writing this and cannot stress it enough, you will love the love you have for yourself after the shoot.

It sounds cliche, but 10 years from now, you'll look back at photos of you from now and tell yourself how beautiful you were. How wonderful would it be to see yourself and appreciate yourself as you are TODAY, right now?
