What was your motivation for seeking a boudoir photography experience?
I follow one of your clients on Instagram who started posting some photos from her shoot with you and it made me VERY curious. And I wanted to do something entirely out of my comfort zone, so I figured why not?
Choosing your studio/photographer is super personal, why did you choose The GFE?
When I started following your studio's Instagram account, I took a deep breath and decided to contact you. I loved the images, and the artistry and the creativity behind every single one of those photos. I loved that you made what we call "real women" look absolutely stunning and glamorous. Plus, once we started chatting on the phone, I felt an immediate rapport with you. My decision was made pretty quickly.
Leading up to the shoot what were you most concerned about?
I was super worried about how my problem areas would photograph. I've lost and maintained 110+ pounds, and with that came a lot of loose skin on my torso and my inner thighs. I was SO worried and SO self conscious that my body just wouldn't photograph well. The stretch marks, the loose skin are the banes of my existence.
What was your favorite part of your boudoir experience?
I absolutely loved getting my hair & make up done and feeling and looking glamorous. I felt and looked like a model. What woman doesn't want to look and feel sexy? P.S. I love how great you made my ass look. :-)
Is there anything you would change or do differently?
I definitely would've taken more risks, more nudity and less clothes. I wished I didn't feel as self conscious the first time around. Which is why I'm going to do this again. More risks, more revealing shots, more sexiness, just more. This will be the shoot that should've been the first time around!
What would you tell other women about your experience, would you recommend doing something like this for themselves?
I would tell them to go ahead and do this and leave all the negative crap - should they have any - and check it at the door. A boudoir photo shoot is empowering and it is supposed to make you feel and look sexy, so take the opportunity and run with it. You'll be surprised at how much fun you have and how sexy you look!
