Hello blog, it’s been a minute! *hides in the corner* The truth is blogging and social media can be so overwhelming but I do love it and really miss connecting with you all! We’ve had a great 2017 and I am really looking forward to 2018, we have some amazing ladies coming in! One of the newest things we have been doing this winter is lots of Fire Boudoir Shoots.

DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT HOW YOUR SEE YOURSELF? 
When I left I had this new confidence about myself, being a working mom sometimes i forget I can be sexy and fierce.

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO DO A BOUDOIR SESSION?

I have always wanted to do a shoot but always felt like it wasn’t a priority with kids, but when a friend did hers I said, “it’s time to do something for myself and my husband?” ūüėČ

 I felt so sexy and confident and excited after, I walked in and felt so comfortable and free I just knew it was going to be amazing!

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL REACTION TO THE IMAGES?

I seriously almost died!! After you have kids things shift and hang and something’s you don’t love your body, looking at the pictures was blown away at how gorgeous they are.

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?? ūüôā¬† 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.

“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! 

IMG_6898

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!
