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! 

Cleveland Boudoir Photographer | Mrs J

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE? 
I can’t pick just one! It was seriously the whole thing! From getting my hair and make-up done, to going back and looking at my photos. 

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF?
Definitely, my husband always tells me how beautiful and sexy I am and now I believe it. The whole experience really changed how I look at myself and my body. 

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION?
I was going back and forth with the idea for over a year actually. But I finally decided to do it this year because this year has been a year of firsts for me. Life changing experiences and so I decided to add this to my list, and I am so glad that I did.

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
I was nervous about how I would look and actually what the photographers would think of me? Silly right? But they made me feel so comfortable, it was so easy to be around them, I didn’t feel judged at all! 

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL?
Amazing! I immediately knew I would do this again. I felt special, in the way a every woman should feel!

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
I couldn’t believe it was me! I looked hot! I looked confident!

ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
I truly think every woman should do this! You get pampered, and it is all about YOU! Every woman deserves to feel sexy, to feel confident and to get pampered.  
WHERE DID YOU SHOP FOR YOUR LINGERIE?
I shopped all over, trying to find the perfect outfit and actually ended back at Victoria’s Secret, which I am glad I did because the color was perfect on me.


ARE THE PHOTOS A GIFT FOR YOURSELF OR SOMEONE ELSE?

Both, I did it as a Christmas gift for my husband but for myself too. I needed this. An experience I wouldn’t change for anything!

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
It is so so hard to pick a favorite part. I would say EVERYTHING! From the hair and makeup to the actual photo shoot onto the viewing of my photos, the entire experience was amazing! Ramona, Jessica and Leah were so sweet and didn’t act like they were at their “job” even though they were very professional but more so, they were personable.

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF?
I never SAW myself doing something like this to begin with. So by making the decision to do this made me change how I see myself. I never thought I could but I DID and I would do it again! 

IMG_6898

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION?
A friend of mine had one done a few years back. When my husband found out about it he said he wished that I would do something like that for him. I said “NO WAY” but in the back of my mind I thought that when we got to our 10 year anniversary I would try to do it for him. The amazing thing I came to find out was I COULD do it and enjoyed every second!

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
The obvious things, being naked in front of someone else, not knowing how to pose, and afraid I wouldn’t like any of the photos.

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL?
I was surprised! Surprised that I was down to my undies and felt comfortable. I couldn’t believe I had done it! and I was so excited to see the photos! 

clevelandboudoirphotographer

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
I couldn’t believe it was me! I couldn’t believe how many of the photos I loved! I had such a hard time narrowing it down for the photo book. I could have sat there all day and stared at ME! Usually I avoid the mirror and photos of myself. but it was a completely different experience looking at those photos!

ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
I am sure everyone else says the same exact thing that I am about to say, but if you have multiple people saying the same exact thing it has to be true right??? JUST DO IT! Do it for yourself, do it for a significant other, do it just to say you did. I promise you that you will NOT regret it! It truly is an experience that is like nothing else in this world. Put any self doubt you have to the side and give this a try. Have fun with it too! Go lingerie shopping, go to a spa, get your hair and nails done. Have Ramona do your hair and makeup the day of the shoot and make it a truly memorable experience.
