Have you ever done a boudoir shoot before? If so, how does your shoot with Kim and Jennie compare to your prior experience? Never have prior to this one! However, I loved this experience and can’t imagine anyone else that could top their atmosphere!
Why did you do your boudoir shoot? I had a very tough 2020 into 2021. I have always overlooked my own self-care and self-love. I finally decided it was time for me to love me. Going through the most emotionally and physically hardest time in my life made me realize just how much I forgot about me. So, for my 40th birthday, I treated myself to an experience unlike any other – this boudoir experience. I’ve had many major surgeries from the age 20 onward and was 7 months post hysterectomy.. I wanted to reclaim and see the beauty in the body God gave me, scars and all! This boudoir did exactly that – I feel sexy and empowered!!!
What was your favorite part of the session? That’s a tough question! My favorite part?!?! The whole thing! The way lingerie made me feel! So womanly! Seeing my images after was mind blowing!
What did doing this shoot do for your self confidence, self worth, and self image? Tell me your story. To spill all the details… the pandemic, two hurricanes back to back, discovering betrayal of my husband and our vows, starting the divorce process, then finding out I had a grapefruit sized tumor on my ovary and uterus, being thrown into a hysterectomy, major post op complications, then rebuilding my home alone, and finally catching Covid all inside of a year was the most humbling, terrifying, grief inducing, life changing year of my life. I’ve become a different person and reconnected with my own self worth and I wanted to dive deeper, treat myself, gain that sexy back!! And capturing that essence at 40 was more than empowering… it has been the best confidence booster! No woman ever has the chance to see herself with bedroom eyes.. with a boudoir you are capturing that sultry, sexy, simple confidence that only your lover sees… and looking at myself in that light has brought out a side of me that I’m very proud of! That woman inside is looking at me in the photographs and it is OUTSTANDING!!!
Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different? I thought I would be super nervous! It was very easy to walk out in next to nothing (and nothing) and have no inhibitions! These ladies make you relaxed and the are so professional and form a sweet sisterhood connection! They genuinely want your best and most beautiful and will do whatever to achieve it for you! It was more comfortable doing this boudoir than trying in clothes in a dressing room!
What was the best part of your experience? Would you change anything? Seeing my images was the best part! I think it was so shocking to see myself as a work of art! I loved it! If I were to change anything I would have splurged more and gotten a larger package; I would have arched a little more and now I know I can push further for a more badass woman picture!!!
Is there anything extra you would like to tell us? Thank you so much for seeing in me what I didn’t; and I deeply appreciate what you ladies do for women! After going thru this awful, emotionally draining, divorce debacle I am all about women supporting women and I feel you ladies have a very special role in that circle! Cheers to you both and the way you lift up women! I’m looking forward to next time!
