Cleveland Boudoir Repeat Client

Whenever I am feeling down or less confident, nothing pulls me out of a slump like looking at my boudoir photos!
DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 
 I am in my 30s and work in the corporate world, so truth be told, I don’t always get the chance to spend a lot of time feeling or looking sexy. As a result, I haven’t been feeling my best about my appearance. I also know that, as a woman, I am my own toughest critic. However, when I booked a session with Cleveland Boudoir, it changed my whole outlook and perspective on my own beauty. Instead of focusing on your flaws, you walk out of there celebrating your own unique beauty. You truly do just feel like a million bucks and that confidence stays with you even after your session!
I cherish my photos from my first session SO MUCH, that I knew I had to go back in and get more done!
BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
I had put on quite a bit of weight and am a few years older since the first time I came in for a session, and I was nervous I wouldn’t be as confident or love my photos as much.

From Leah: One of the biggest reasons we see for not doing a session is weight. I’d say out the 250+ clients we work with yearly, 75% of them tell us they are most insecure about their weight and how they will photograph. We always have the goal of “5 more pounds” I think weight is one of those things that most of us will always be working on. I think it’s good to through that excuse out the window and love you how you are now. Be comfortable in the skin you are in, or let us help you with your confidence! Don’t let this minor thing get in the way, we promise we can make you feel amazing just how you are now! 
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
 I know this is cheating because you can’t say the ENTIRE experience, but can I just say the ENTIRE experience?? 🙂  I loved my first boudoir session so much that I am a returning customer and came back to Cleveland Boudoir for a second session! The entire experience is just so much fun, and the end result photos are so beautiful that I JUST HAD to come back! From getting glam in the salon with Ramona, to posing around the studio with Leah, you just feel so beautiful and sexy throughout the entire day! Thank you Leah again for another fun session!
ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
 You just have to step out of your comfort zone and go for it! I have friends who say they want to do it when they “lose 15 pounds” or “get more in shape”, but I will tell you, time will pass and you will regret not going in for pictures! I think one of the best things about Cleveland Boudoir is that they really do see and celebrate beauty in all shapes, sizes, and ages, and they will make you feel beautiful and confident, because you ARE! There really is no better time than now to go in! Leah and crew do such an awesome job making the experience so much fun and ensure that you are comfortable throughout the whole day.

One boudoir shoot is never enough!

Do it!!! You will not regret one moment of it. Don’t look for a reason or a”best time” because it’ll never come. If you want to lose weight first (like I did) book the shoot a few months in advance to motivate yourself to lose even more. You know need a significant other to impress, do it for you! This experience is like NO OTHER! If you’ve been considering it, Cleveland Boudoir is truly the best place to go! The ladies on this staff are amazing and know just how to pose you so that you look and feel your best from start to finish!

 

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?

The entire day of shooting. From feeling like a Queen getting pampered with hair and makeup and then being the center of attention as soon as the shoot begins! I’ve now worked with both Leah and Jessica and they both have a way of making you feel like the most beautiful woman in the world!!!

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?

I was shocked! I was in disbelief at first that the pictures were of me and not just a photoshopped mashup of my facial expressions and body. I loved every image and had the HARDEST time picking the best ones. 

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 

Definitely!! The images created this confidence in me, I never knew I had. If I’m ever in doubt I look at the photos and realize I can do anything I put my mind to!! 

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION? 

I decided to do my first shoot as a birthday present to myself! I’ve always admired the confidence and pure sexiness that the women who have done Boudoir shoots in the past show. I wanted to show myself that I too can exude that type of confidence and be just as sexy! 

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?

The final outcome and my own level of comfort. I was worried that I would be asked to pose in a way that I wasn’t comfortable and it would show in my face or I would be too afraid to try it. Thank goodness for Jess and Leah! They both helped me to find the confidence in any position/pose we tried no matter how awkward I thought it may look. I trusted them and because of it, the pictures turned out flawless!!

Cleveland Boudoir, “I’m not just a mom, I’m still sexy”

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE? 
My favorite part was the entire day of the shoot! From hair & makeup to taking the pictures, I had a blast! 

 DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 
It definitely helped me see what my husband sees all the time! It also made me see that I’m not just a mom, I’m still sexy too! 

 ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
Just do it, there’s no time like the present. These women will make you feel incredible and you will walk away with so much confidence! I think it’s something that everyone should do! 

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION? 
I’m a mom of 2 little girls, and in this world of body negativity I wanted my kids to know that we are all beautiful just the way we are. I needed to practice what I preach! 

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
About how everything would turn out! Plus it’s not everyday that you pose in lingerie in front of someone! 

 AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL? 
Amazing! It’s absolutely something I want to do again! 

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
I couldn’t believe they were of me! They were gorgeous and I was floored that they were unedited. I think I was in shock for a good 10 minutes!

 WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
Just getting to do something “extravagant” for myself. As a mom, I don’t do a lot for myself (sure, the salon once in a while) so it was a nice gift to myself before my 30th birthday. 

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 
I’ve been working on loving myself more, and never looked at myself as being beautiful or sexy. Looking at the images…or hell, even in the mirror in the studio…allowed me to see myself the way my husband does.

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION? 
I wanted to do one years ago when I got married but didn’t have the guts. As I approached my 30th birthday, I just said “Why not?!” As I said, I’m working in loving myself and being confident in my skin and figured this would help with that. 

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
All of it! I have never liked photos of myself very much so the whole thing terrified me.

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL? 
Initially…still nervous. Although I felt good with how I looked during the session, I was still nervous to see if the images would come out nice and hoping that my nervousness wouldn’t show too much.

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
Surprised! I couldn’t believe some of those pictures were mine! I had such a hard time choosing, that I ended up just buying most of them.

ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
Just do it! My nerves were through the roof and I knew I would be my worst critic but I’m so glad I did it. You won’t regret doing it…but you will regret passing on the opportunity.
 ARE THE PHOTOS A GIFT FOR YOURSELF OR SOMEONE ELSE?
Honestly, mostly for me!
