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.

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?
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!

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!

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.

“Even though my boob was falling out!” | Cleveland Boudoir Photographer

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?

My favorite part of this experience was EVERYTHING! Especially Leah, Jessica, and Ramona! They were amazing! When the day came for my appointment, I was so nervous/anxious/scared… I have never done anything like this and from the moment I walked up the stairs in to the studio, I felt so comfortable! Ramona did an amazing job with helping me with my hair and did my my make up perfectly! Jessica was an amazing photographer! She made me feel so comfortable even though my boob kept falling out of this one particular outfit… Lol! And Leah was so fun and exciting! I love them all! I would recommend Cleveland Boudoir to everyone!
