What was your motivation to seek out a boudoir photography experience?

I was trying to come up with the best gift for my fianc√© on our wedding day. When searching online I came across the idea of doing a boudoir shoot. When looking for a boudoir photographer, I knew I wanted to choose someone that would help me create the perfect album for my wedding night. What I didn’t realize is that this would end up also being a gift to myself. When I started college I began gaining weight. For the last few months I have really hit an all time low with my confidence and the way I feel about myself. I almost didn’t book the shoot because I didn’t want to look heavy and wide. However, I decided to just go for it and book a shoot with Stephanie.  


 Choosing your studio/ boudoir photographer is super personal, why did you choose The GFE?

I chose Stephanie because of her work and testimonials. I love the sexy vibe every photo has, even the ones that don’t show alot of skin. I was pretty confident that she would help me take beautiful and sexy photos. Also, each woman always looks so comfortable in each photo.

Leading up to the shoot what were you most concerned about?

My stomach and back rolls and under chin area

 What was your favorite part of your boudoir experience?

My favorite part of my boudoir experience was when Dessa revealed my hair and makeup. I felt so beautiful and knew at that time that my pictures were going to be beautiful. 

 Is there anything you would change or do differently?



What would you tell other women about your experience, would you recommend doing something like this for themselves?



Do you view yourself differently since your session? Do you appreciate your body more? Are you kinder to yourself?

I didn’t think I would, but I really feel so much better after doing my boudoir shoot. I realized how beautiful my body and features are. I am so proud of these pictures and can’t wait to do it again one day. I never thought I would look at them over and over again, and just be like “dang I look amazing” because for so long I have been in such a low place. Thank you Stephanie and Dessa for helping me see my inner and outer beauty and helping me give the most amazing gift for my wedding.
