WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
I think being photographed was my favorite part. I was so nervous but as soon as I had my favorite outfit on it was a breeze and everything became so fun and relaxing. It was such an experience, so different than anything else I’ve ever done.
DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF?
YES! I’m self conscious about a lot of things but surprisingly, I wasn’t nervous at all. Now I feel confident when I look in the mirror and when I look at my photos.
WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION?
A friend told me about it and gave me a pair of pj shorts to wear during the shoot. It’s a gift for my fiancé. I was motivated to do it to give him the perfect gift but it ended up being the perfect gift for me.
BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
Being basically naked in front of strangers. But Leah and Jess were perfect so I felt super comfortable. And I had never worn lingerie before so that was nerve wracking, like something was going to go wrong with my outfits.
AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL?
On top of the world. I was so excited to see the images. I felt sexy with my hair and make up done and I felt like I could do anything.
WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
I think my jaw dropped all the way to the floor. All of the parts of me that I love were highlighted and the photos were simply beautiful.
ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
Do it! Buy something new to take to the shoot, something that you feel beautiful and comfortable in and everything else will fall into place.
