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.

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL? 
A-MAH-ZING! My head was held a little higher, I had a smile that I couldn’t get rid of, it was like a little secret that only I knew.

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
“No way, is that me?!?!  I’d so do me!” cleboudoir

ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
Do it!! It’s so worth it!! Take the leap, face any fears you might have, it is totally worth it!  Ramona, Jessica, and Leah are the perfect team, they are amazing at what they do and you will leave feeling like you’ve known them forever.

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.

Client of the Week! “I couldn’t believe how they turned out!”

Mrs M had a similar story to why I did my own boudoir session last month. Before babies it is easy to schedule your manicures and hair appointments and spending money on shoes is easy. When those adorable babies enter our world though, naturally they are our first priority. Our clothes haven’t been updated in months, maybe years. The last time I had a hair cut? HA! However, we have to remember to take care of ourselves as well and love on yourself!

I absolutely LOVED feeling like a princess. Everyone was so nice and welcoming, which made it so much easier for me to have fun!

 DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 
Honestly, it made me realize how much more I need to appreciate myself. I am way too hard on myself after having kids, especially #2. I have learned to love myself even more.

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION? 
I wanted to do one for my husbands wedding gift, but wasn’t able to schedule one in time because I actually had my second baby 2 months before getting married (Not planned!!). I forgot about it until recently, when I was thinking about what I could get him for our second anniversary.clevelandboudoirphotos

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
I was actually the most nervous about seeing my pictures and what I would think afterwards.I judge myself pretty harshly and I am my own worst critic at times!

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL? 
I felt amazing! So much energy to take on the world. The hair and makeup by Ramona was completely breathtaking. I actually felt like I looked better then on my wedding day! I loved how Leah directed me, but also made it fun and easy to do so.

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
It was so hard to narrow everything down! They were all amazing. I couldn’t believe how they turned out!

ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
Just do it! Seriously! Being a tired mom of 2, I was unsure about how I would look, but everything blew my mind! I am so happy I did it, because it helped bring into reality what I actually look like outside of sweats and a pony tail.

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION? 
I have wanted to do a boudoir session for years. I put it off “until I lost more weight.” Then an opportunity to do a boudoir session as a Christmas Gift for my wife happened! So thankful I didn’t wait!

I’ve had “Glamour Shots” done in the past and didn’t like the photos! (Awkward) I was nervous that I wouldn’t like how I Iooked.

NSFW: Cleveland Boudoir Client Interview

**NSFW: CONTAINS AWESOME NUDITY**

Mrs B came into the studio when one of her friends was getting her session done with us. We chatted about doing a boudoir session for herself but there was some resistance from the husband. I think I probably told her 50 times that she should do it for herself then and if her husband was good, he could see the images. A week later, Mrs B emailed me ready to book her shoot and, a couple weeks later she was back in the studio!

Thank you for allowing us to share your gorgeous images. We all had a blast working with you and especially getting to step outside the box and work with some a little different in terms of outfits. The rope was so much fun and easily are my favorite from the shoot!

Enjoy this client interview:

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
My favorite part was getting into the ropes. I am very comfortable in them and I knew it was going to be an amazing experience!

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF?
I have always been a little self conscious  (as most women are) but after the shoot I felt like I could rule the world! I had my makeup done, hair done, eye lashes on, I was ready for anything!

Cleveland Boudoir | Client Interview

I say it often, “boudoir is for everyone.” It does not matter your age, the size pants you put on in the morning, your race, what you do for a job, where you hang out on the weekend, or how you take your coffee. Boudoir is for every woman. It doesn’t matter if you have all the confidence in the world, or none, the biggest boobs or the smallest. None of those things matter. All that matters is you want an experience for yourself. Boudoir can be a gift for someone else, but at the end of the experience it’s always for you and this beautiful client proves just that!

akron_boudoir

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
My favorite part of this experience was just letting go of any inhibitions I had.  After my hair and makeup were done by Ramona, I looked in the mirror and couldn’t believe it was actually me looking back in the mirror.  Ramona did an amazing job and I felt so amazing.  It was an awesome experience to just let go and feel beautiful.

boudoircleveland

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF?
After seeing the finished pictures, I realized that I need to stop being so critical about myself and focus on more positive things about myself.  Yes, I felt beautiful, sexy and amazing but looking at the pictures, I realized that I’m all those things as well as being a strong, hardworking, woman and mother.

boudoirakron

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION? 
What motivated me was going through a very rough divorce.   I had been married for 15 years and during that time I was in a very depressed state where I didn’t really care how I looked.  I had gained a lot of weigh and there would be days where I just didn’t care about doing anything.  I realized in 2013 that I needed to start living for me and instead of trying to make others happy, I needed to make myself happy.  I lost some of the weight that I had gained, as well as a husband, and started taking care of myself.  I am the happiest I have been in a very long time and recently reconnected with my high school sweetheart.  We dated all through high school and lost contact when he moved to California to join the Navy.  We reconnected last year through Facebook and he has since moved up from Florida to be together.  I now realize that he should have been the one that I married in the first place and so not only was the session for myself but for him as well.

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
I was most nervous about being in front of a camera.  I absolutely hate getting my picture taken.  It makes me feel very self conscious and a lack of self confidence. 

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
WOW!!!!!   I couldn’t believe that was actually me in those pictures.  They were gorgeous! 

clevelandboudoirphotographer

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL? 
After the shoot, I felt amazing.  Jessica made me feel very comfortable and I didn’t feel self conscious at all.  She had me do poses that I felt comfortable with and even went as far as doing a few topless shots which I never in a million years would have pictured myself doing, EVER!  That’s how comfortable she made me feel. 

budoircleveland

ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
My advise is just do it.  No matter how you feel about yourself, how much weight you think you need to lose or how bad you feel about those stretch marks you may have…. just do it.  I GUARANTEE you will feel completely different about yourself afterwards.  This was an amazing experience and am SO GLAD I did it.  I couldn’t be happier with the pictures and my boyfriend also absolutely LOVES them.  I can’t wait to do another session again.
