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!

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 

Yes! Over the past year I gained 30 pounds and honestly I felt like crap because I’m not used to seeing myself like this… I think everyone now-a-days is critical of themselves and I am the worst at that. I always beat myself up and this photo shoot completely changed how I view myself… I know that sounds cliché but it really did! I went to go see and choose photos for my album with Leah and I could not believe what I saw! Keep in mind, this was prior photoshop lol, I fell in love with myself, 30lbs more didn’t matter any more.  I saw not only beauty on the outside but on the inside too! Now I walk with more confidence because I am now reminded how beautiful I really am!

ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?

JUST DO IT! Just like Nike says lol. 

Just go with the flow when it comes to your shoot. I could tell a difference from the earlier images when I was trying too hard, and the images where I was feeling it! Just let your inner vixen shine! Just do what you feel and don’t worry about it Leah and the team know what they are doing! 

Also, I was worried about the financial situation of being able to afford what I wanted when it came to choosing a product but Leah has a great payment plan option that helps so much!

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?

I was speechless. I mean I was shocked at how amazing they turned out! I just expected to see unflattering pictures of me in too tight lingerie! Lol but let me tell you… I was like Damnnnnnn! I look gooooodddddd! Lol they weren’t just sexy they were BEAUTIFUL. I love them 🙂

Client of the Week! “I couldn’t believe how they turned out!”

Mrs M had a similar story to why I did my own boudoir session last month. Before babies it is easy to schedule your manicures and hair appointments and spending money on shoes is easy. When those adorable babies enter our world though, naturally they are our first priority. Our clothes haven’t been updated in months, maybe years. The last time I had a hair cut? HA! However, we have to remember to take care of ourselves as well and love on yourself!

 DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 
Honestly, it made me realize how much more I need to appreciate myself. I am way too hard on myself after having kids, especially #2. I have learned to love myself even more.

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION? 
I wanted to do one for my husbands wedding gift, but wasn’t able to schedule one in time because I actually had my second baby 2 months before getting married (Not planned!!). I forgot about it until recently, when I was thinking about what I could get him for our second anniversary.clevelandboudoirphotos

BEFORE YOUR SESSION, WHAT WERE YOU MOST NERVOUS ABOUT?
I was actually the most nervous about seeing my pictures and what I would think afterwards.I judge myself pretty harshly and I am my own worst critic at times!

AFTER THE SHOOT, HOW DID YOU FEEL? 
I felt amazing! So much energy to take on the world. The hair and makeup by Ramona was completely breathtaking. I actually felt like I looked better then on my wedding day! I loved how Leah directed me, but also made it fun and easy to do so.

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?

ANY ADVICE FOR OTHERS LOOKING TO DO A SHOOT?
Just do it! Seriously! Being a tired mom of 2, I was unsure about how I would look, but everything blew my mind! I am so happy I did it, because it helped bring into reality what I actually look like outside of sweats and a pony tail.

As a mom to five, there is not a lot of time to pamper myself. My favorite part was being pampered….hair, makeup, dressing…..it was so nice to be pampered!

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF?
Prior to my session, I could look at my body and tell you everything that was wrong with it. After my session, I can tell you I have some pretty rocking features, lol and pictures to prove it!

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION?
My husband, like many men, likes porn! I’m so vanilla….lol, I don’t do lingerie, watch porn, or anything “crazy.” Lol, so I wanted to give him something racy to look at! I wanted to give him me, all over again! I bought some sexy lingerie, and bam! Now he has something to look at that I approve of! Lol….I gave him my album as an anniversary gift! He LOVED it!
