Miss A – I was nervous I wouldn’t look like the gorgeous women on your Instagram…
Were you nervous about your session?
I was nervous. Surprisingly, I was not at all nervous about being half-naked and posing for photos with someone I had only talked to via phone and email. I was nervous that there was a strong possibility that I wasn’t going to be happy with my photos. That I wouldn’t look like the gorgeous women on your Instagram, Facebook and website. WOW, was I wrong! You were incredible. You told me literally everything you needed me to do – point your toes, arch your back, tilt your head, put your arm here, pop your booty! You downplayed the areas I was least comfortable with and focused on those I was most confident. You made me feel and look like those “models” on your social media. Little did I know…those are all normal women just like me!
I love the confidence it’s given me. I have never been satisfied with my body….EVER. At my skinniest; too thin, not muscular enough. At my fittest; not lean enough. I was never content and happy with my present state. That is, until this shoot. I’ll never forget the moment when you first showed me an image from behind the camera. I remember you saying, “Girl, look at your legs.” I was in awe and said, “Wait, that’s me? That’s me?!” (All while grinning like a fool). You responded, “Yes, that’s you! You’re gorgeous!” From that moment on, a switch flipped. Whenever I look at my photos, I’m reminded of how empowered I felt that day. It’s the most incredible feeling!
Prior to booking my shoot, I had been following you on Facebook for nearly 6 months. I fell head over heels in love with your work! I researched different boudoir photographers and no one compared. Your style is what I fell in love with. So classy, sexy, artistic, unique. You have a great eye!
OMG…where do I begin?! I joke with my husband all the time that, “I’m a woman of many faces.” The one I wear most often…confidence. I’m in sales and that’s part of the gig. But even though my professional self exudes confidence, I have never been 100% happy or satisfied with my body. When I initially booked the shoot, my goal was to be the most fit I had ever been. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. I changed careers this past year and amongst the chaos, my workouts took a backseat. The day of my shoot came and I wasn’t my skinniest or most fit self. But there I stood in my blue body suit ready to bare it all. I had such high expectations for myself and would give anything to look like the sexy, stunning girls on your Facebook and Instagram. When you first showed me a glimpse from behind the camera I couldn’t believe that was ME. I was in shock. I was finally able to see what my husband sees. Following my shoot, my body image has never been better. I’m not so critical of myself. I appreciate my body and how strong it is. I can’t thank you enough for helping to give me that confidence. All women should feel this way.
