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! 

IMG_6646

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! 

clevelandboudoirphotographer

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.

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION?
I have always wanted to try a professional photo shoot. The thought of it being a boudoir shoot didn’t cross my mind until few years ago. I just never felt pretty enough, thought they would never turn out good. It was 2 co-workers that finally encouraged me to make the appointment.  clevelandboudoir

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF?
Oh absolutely. I have more self confidence now. I walk with my head up, not looking down at the ground. I feel pretty on the inside and out now.  IMG_8370akronboudoir

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
That’s a tough question. The Whole thing was great. Ramona and Jessica, the hair and make up. Everything. I think my favorite though, would be the butterflies in my stomach. I haven’t felt like that in years! 

ohioboudoir

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
All of it! lol I was nervous how my hair and make would be done, would I like it, if not would they change it. What if I can’t pose right, what if I don’t like a single picture. I was a nervous wreck!  IMG_8240

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL?
I felt AMAZING I felt so beautiful and sexy and energized.  IMG_8299

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
“OH MY GOD, That’s me? That’s me!” I seriously did not think I’d like any. Total opposite, I couldn’t narrow them down!

“I wanted to celebrate my body and hard work” Cleveland Boudoir Studio

 

You ARE beautiful and sexy just the way you are. There is nothing sexier on a woman than confidence and it shows through your pictures!

clevelandboudoirstudio

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
There are two parts of the experience that stand out for me. After about 5 minutes into shooting I begin to feel super comfortable and confident. I have never felt so comfortable in my own skin. The second part was viewing my pictures. I was shocked that that was me in the pictures! It’s like viewing yourself through some one else’s eyes. I felt so great about how they turned out!

akronboudoirDID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF?
My confidence is definitely a lot stronger. Knowing that I could get in front of a camera almost completely naked and rock it out makes me feel like I can do anything!

IMG_9596

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION?
I am getting married and wanted to give my future husband something really special. I have also been working very hard in the kitchen and at the gym and this is the best shape I have ever been in and I wanted to celebrate my body and my hard work. Although I am not perfect, no one is, I wanted to celebrate my body just the way it is because I think the female body is beautiful in all shapes and sizes. I have finally learned to love mine and this is the BEST way to appreciate my body.

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL?
Like a bad ass! When I told my girlfriends that I was doing a boudoir shoot they all responded with “i could never do that!” And I went in there and rocked it out and felt comfortable doing it. I felt great about my body and about myself.

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?
“WOW THAT’S ME?!?!?!” I loved how they turned out, they were better than I expected!

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. 

IMG_3465IMG_3746columbusboudoirstudio IMG_3550IMG_3737

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. 

IMG_3768clevelandboudoirstudio

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. 

IMG_3779

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.
