“I never SAW myself doing something like this”

IMG_6790

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.

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 🙂

Boudoir Outfit Inspiration: Simple is sexy

Sometimes the sexiest sessions are the ones with the most casual outfits. Here is a recent shoot where we focused on a bra with jeans and then *almost* nude with a panty.

Here are some other ideas:
• little black dress or a wrap dress with a sexy bra showing
•a tank top and panty (think calvin klein for inspiration)
• a cardigan or off the shoulder sweater
• an item of your significant others like one of his shirts, a tie, a jersey

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE?
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!
