Words from a Chicago Boudoir Client

Last week I headed to Chicago for a weekend of boudoir sessions. This time around I got to meet this gorgeous soon to be, MRS! She and her fiance are tying the knot next weekend in Michigan and
is doing this as a little wedding present. Thanks again for coming and being only the sixth redhead I have ever done a boudoir session with! (yes, I know how many I’ve done!) 😛

What was the reason you decided to book a boudoir session? And why with Leah?
I wanted to do a boudoir session as a wedding gift for my fiancé.  It is totally unexpected and I know he will love it!  Leah seemed to capture the exact style I would have envisioned for me.  Soft, mostly natural, and really sexy. 😉

Did you do anything to prepare for your session?
Research!  I looked at Leah’s blog as well as others to find out what style and outfits I wanted to use in my shoot.  And I got to go shopping, one of my favorite things.

How do you feel about your session and the photos?
The session was great!  Leah got right into it and put me at ease.  I thought the photos turned out so great that I found it to be really difficult to narrow it down and pick my favorites.

Out of the process what were the top 2 things you loved doing the most?
Having my hair and makeup done in a way that I would never wear it in real life was transformative.  Also, for my shoot, I wore pieces that my fiancé bought for me in the past.  This reminded me of why I was doing this for him.

Would you recommend this to other women and if so, why? Or why not?
YES!!  Anyone I told about doing a boudoir session seemed envious of my bravery.  I am not brave and I don’t have a perfect body but I decided to be a little daring because I knew my fiancé would be surprised and thrilled.   Leah will make you look amazing!!
