Miranda Parker Photography » Blog

Nerves….Yes! On the outside I always try to appear confident but on the inside I doubt myself and was nervous that my lack of confidence in my body image would show through in my pictures.

The atmosphere was inviting and not intimidating. From the beginning in hair and makeup all the way thru the session Miranda made me feel comfortable and Beautiful. This has been on my bucket list for a while now and I just decided to “Go For It”.  In my head I kept saying I would do it when I was in perfect shape and my body was perfect. Well I have been changing and becoming healthier for the last year and one thing I have learned is there is no such thing as a “perfect body”.  My husband always tells me how beautiful I am so I also thought he would appreciate the pictures.

Miranda’s work celebrates women of all shapes and sizes and I have been admiring her pictures for sometime now.

“SOMETIMES THE HARDEST THING TO WEAR IS YOUR OWN SKIN” This quote really sums it up! This experience made me realize I am strong and confident. It also made me feel proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone and gave me a new outlook on inner and outer beauty.

Were you nervous for your session?

I was a little nervous for my session because I had seen other sessions on Facebook and hoped that I looked half as good as the women that were featured. But I loved how comfortable I was after the first few pictures were taken. It was almost like a normal, natural thing for me to do with the help of Miranda for the poses. I was able to feel sexy especially after struggling with my weight due to breaking my ankle this past spring.

What made you choose Miranda?
I had done extensive research on photographers who provide boudoir pictures and none of them came close to even comparing to her talents. I chose Miranda because she is simply the best.

When going to the studio to review my photos for the first time after editing,- As the slideshow was playing I had never been so proud of myself for going outside of my comfort zone. Seeing myself in that way made me love my body exactly how I am.

Honestly, yes. Not because I didn’t trust you or think your work was flawless. I was nervous because of my own internal expectations. I have followed you for a while now and know your work is just beautiful. However, I have always struggled with positive body image and comparison and it was very difficult for me to put those aside. After sitting and chatting with you during makeup and a few shots in I was at ease. Since my shoot I have looked at the pictures no less than 100 times – you truly have a gift and calling in life.

 All of it. Seriously, from start to finish the experience was beyond my expectations. I felt beautiful and sexy and empowered throughout our entire time spent together.

There are hundreds of boudoir photographers in Metro Detroit. I chose you because your passion and expertise is lived out in the photographs you publish (and it was well worth the drive!). I told you this before, but I truly believe you have a calling in life. It takes someone special to empower a woman/group of women and you do that,

 Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. I look at the pictures and find myself in disbelief that it is me in that frame. I know that these pictures are something both myself and my fiance will cherish forever. More than the pictures I will cherish the experience because. I cannot thank you enough.

    • I WAS SO NERVOUS ABOUT MY SHOOT. I DID LOTS OF RESEARCH ON BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHERS AND IT WAS CLEAR MIRANDA WAS THE BEST. I HAD FOLLOWED HER SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS FOR A WHILE AND DID NOT THINK IT WAS POSSIBLE FOR MY PICTURES TO TURN OUT LIKE THE ONES SHE POSTED.  I HAVE ALWAYS WISHED MY BODY WAS JUST A LITTLE BETTER, OR A LITTLE MORE OF THIS, OR A LITTLE LESS OF THAT.   I LOVED THE WAY THIS EXPERIENCE MADE ME FEEL. I FEEL MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN I EVER HAVE BEFORE. MIRANDA MADE SURE THE EXPERIENCE WAS LAID BACK AND COMFORTABLE.  I FEEL BEAUTIFUL IN MY OWN SKIN. I HAVE VIEWED MYSELF IN A WHOLE NEW LIGHT.”

  • Amy - MIRANDA,

    Your work is beautiful! I am interested in a photo shoot. Can you give me a little information on how it works and pricing?

    Thank you,

“I was very nervous about my session – I generally prefer to not be in front of a camera, let alone doing so while half naked! Once I was dressed in my outfit and Miranda was directing me behind the camera, it felt beyond natural – as if I was talking with an old friend, while just so happening to be in my lingerie. I happened to be more nervous about the photo reveal than I was the actual photo shoot itself because I knew I would see the results and I had an anxious feeling that I wouldn’t look as gorgeous as the other women that she has photographed.

 I live south of Detroit and looked around in my immediate area for a photographer, but wasn’t satisfied. It was well worth the drive for the photo shoot and reveal to go to her. I would recommend this experience to anyone. Invest in yourself and capture this moment of time in your life. Don’t wait to lose those extra 10 lbs or to get in shape. Eat your cupcake, skip the gym for a day, buy some lingerie and let Miranda show you just how beautiful you really are.
