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!!

You are beautiful with Cleveland Boudoir

 Just relax, these ladies are amazing at what they do, all 3 of them, just trust. You ARE beautiful and you will love it!

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION?
I have always wanted to try a professional photo shoot. The thought of it being a boudoir shoot didn’t cross my mind until few years ago. I just never felt pretty enough, thought they would never turn out good. It was 2 co-workers that finally encouraged me to make the appointment.  clevelandboudoir

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF?
Oh absolutely. I have more self confidence now. I walk with my head up, not looking down at the ground. I feel pretty on the inside and out now.  IMG_8370akronboudoir

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
That’s a tough question. The Whole thing was great. Ramona and Jessica, the hair and make up. Everything. I think my favorite though, would be the butterflies in my stomach. I haven’t felt like that in years!

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
All of it! lol I was nervous how my hair and make would be done, would I like it, if not would they change it. What if I can’t pose right, what if I don’t like a single picture. I was a nervous wreck!  IMG_8240

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL?
I felt AMAZING I felt so beautiful and sexy and energized.  IMG_8299

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
“OH MY GOD, That’s me? That’s me!” I seriously did not think I’d like any. Total opposite, I couldn’t narrow them down!

Confident and Beautiful, Cleveland Boudoir Studio

One of our most popular items is our 8X8 album and today I wanted to share an example of the layout of one of my client’s albums. We love to keep the design simple and really keep the focus on the images, that is in fact, the main focus!

Getting my hair and makeup done was my favorite experience. I don’t get to pamper myself often so it was nice being pampered.

I have more confidence in how I look. I’ve always been body conscious and I feel more confident now.

011-012

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL? 
I felt confident, I felt beautiful, I felt relaxed and comfortable. I felt like I could take on the world! 

013-014

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
I couldn’t stop smiling. “Wow that’s what I look like?” Every time my boyfriend said I looked beautiful, I wouldn’t believe him. I never saw myself the way he sees me. And now, I see myself the way I should. Confident and beautiful.

ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
Just do it. 

“Don’t let the fear of failing stop you from playing the game.” You will leave with a new sense of confidence and it is something we all need a boost of.

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 

Yes! Over the past year I gained 30 pounds and honestly I felt like crap because I’m not used to seeing myself like this… I think everyone now-a-days is critical of themselves and I am the worst at that. I always beat myself up and this photo shoot completely changed how I view myself… I know that sounds cliché but it really did! I went to go see and choose photos for my album with Leah and I could not believe what I saw! Keep in mind, this was prior photoshop lol, I fell in love with myself, 30lbs more didn’t matter any more.  I saw not only beauty on the outside but on the inside too! Now I walk with more confidence because I am now reminded how beautiful I really am!

ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?

JUST DO IT! Just like Nike says lol. 

Just go with the flow when it comes to your shoot. I could tell a difference from the earlier images when I was trying too hard, and the images where I was feeling it! Just let your inner vixen shine! Just do what you feel and don’t worry about it Leah and the team know what they are doing! 

Also, I was worried about the financial situation of being able to afford what I wanted when it came to choosing a product but Leah has a great payment plan option that helps so much!

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
And what an experience It was! There is nothing more liberating than doing something that you’ve never done before and fighting your inner inhibitions. My favorite part of the entire experience was noticing how it became “easier”, I literally could feel my fear diminishing as the session progressed.

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 
I definitely have a new appreciation for my body. We as women are always so hard on ourselves, the shoot gave me new found confidence and helped me see the beauty that I don’t always observe.

ARE THE PHOTOS A GIFT FOR YOURSELF OR SOMEONE ELSE?
The album is for my fiancé, but after seeing the photos and having this experience – it turns out that the “gift” is really for me. It gave me the gift of new found confidence, the gift of feeling sexy, and the gift of realizing that I can do things that I fear.
