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! 

“I never SAW myself doing something like this”

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!

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?

Oh boy, this is a tough one. I really loved everything from the time I walked up the stairs for my shoot to me viewing my photos. But I guess if I had to choose it would be the shoot itself, because it’s not something that I’ve done before but I’ve always wanted to do it. I had a blast with my shoot. I was nervous at first but the nerves faded and it ended up being really fun.

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 

Absolutely, I waited awhile to do my shoot because of the weight I put on after having children. I lost 15lbs and decided that even though I still have 20 more I would like to lose I would just go for it. Well I am very glad I did. I was terrified that when I viewed my photos I would look terrible. However, my viewing was nothing like I expected. I loved all the pictures and it was VERY hard to narrow them down. I love the way I look in my photos.

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION? 

I’ve always wanted to do one, but like I said before the weight after my kids was holding me back. I’m currently in my journey of a healthier lifestyle and I’ve lost 15lbs. I’m not where I ultimately want to be, but with that weight gone, Leah having a promotion, and my husbands birthday coming up. I thought why not. So I took a leap of faith hoping it would be worth it. And it totally was.

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?

Before my session I was most nervous about viewing my photos. I was afraid I wouldn’t like any of them and I would be leaving feeling terrible.

After leaving my shoot I felt like I was on a high. I felt wonderful and elated that my pictures looked amazing. I felt beautiful leaving and impatient to get my final product in hand.

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.
