Miranda Parker Photography » Blog

“I decided to give the book on the Thursday before our wedding. In the chaos of family in town and last minute items, this was to be the last moment where it was just us. I sat him down on the couch and handed him the wrapped book. As he opened it, every page he let out a gasp or wow. He slowly flipped through each page in awe that this was his soon to be wife. He said it was the best gift he has ever received and he will cherish it forever.”
Were you nervous about your session?
I would say it was a combination of nervousness and excitement. I had been waiting a long time to find the perfect time to do this. When I drove the two hours to Miranda’s studio, the nerves were definitely building as I got closer. However, once I started hair and makeup my nerves faded and I was ready to do this!
What did you like best about your boudoir experience?
How it made me feel during, immediately after and once I received my book. My shoot gave me an insight into how my husband saw me and how I should be seeing myself. Now I have this beautiful printed piece to look back on when I need a little pick me up or if my husband does ; )
What inspired you to book a boudoir session?
I wanted to give this as a present to my husband for our wedding which took place on New Years Eve. I could not think of a better present for him to have right before I became his wife.
In addition, I did this for me. A confidence boost and to see myself for how beautiful I really am.

What made you choose Miranda?
I found Miranda on social media and as soon as I saw her page, I knew she was who I wanted to go with. Her talent for posing and lighting is unmatched.
Did the experience help give you a more positive perception of yourself?
Of course! When I got the sneak peak, I sent it to my sister and said “who is that”? I was blown away by the images and had a really hard time choosing which pictures to put in the book.
Would you recommend this experience to a friend?
I would recommend boudoir to any woman who wants to see herself in a new positive light. I am so happy that I did this.

Miss A contacted me just prior to the New Year about fitting a session in before her upcoming move to Vegas. I happen to have one date open I could schedule and we squeezed in the session just in time. I’m so glad the timing worked out as she was so much fun to work with, not to mention she is absolutely gorgeous!

What inspired you to book a boudoir session?
I wanted to look st myself from someone else’s point of view. It’s easy to forget sometimes, how beautiful we really are. So this shoot was a treat and a reminder to myself…

Were you nervous about your session?
Yes. I am very camera shy, so I was very anxious.


What made you choose Miranda?

I came across her website online and was instantly fascinated with her work.

Did the experience help give you a more positive perception of yourself?

I think so, I was worried some of the pictures I may pick apart, but after getting them back, I was 100% satisfied with the results.


What did you like best about your boudoir experience?

I really enjoyed how easy it was to be photographed by Miranda. She is very helpful with everything.

“Just wanted to write and thank you for such a great experience! I have been stalking you on Facebook and Instagram for a year or two and have known if I were to ever make this leap that you were the only one to take this journey with.”
“In hindsight I probably should have warned my husband a little of where we were going on reveal day since part way up the stairs he figured out we were at a photographers so he thought we were getting pictures taken- then once he reached the top of the stairs he thought “oh crap they are all naked!” Imagine his relief when he found out the photos had already been taken!”

“But in all seriousness Thank you for an amazing experience- I never imagined I’d be that comfortable during the photo shoot and then when I saw the photos- it just didn’t seem like that could be me. I’m usually the one who says “eww not that one- I don’t like how I look, etc”. But these photo?!!! They turned out beautiful! Your vision for the perfect shot and trying new things so everyone is unique truly sets you apart. You are such an expert in your profession- the photos that I thought as we were taking them that I would like the least turned out to be my favorite.” “It was such a wonderful surprise for my husband for our anniversary- the timing was perfect and he was in awe that his conservative wife would do this for him. He loved the photos and is already negotiating at which anniversary I will be coming back. He said he thought it was a great confidence boost for me as well as he said he didn’t think he heard me say in any photos that I didn’t care for how I looked. The words we keep describing the photos are hot, sexy, beautiful and classy.
A million thanks for the perfect gift, for him and for me.”

What did you like best about your boudoir experience?
At first I was very nervous about the upcoming photo shoot, not really knowing what to expect. Miranda was very calm and made me feel very comfortable. She gave good directives for poses and her excitement about the photo she just took made me feel more confident. She had obvious knowledge of boudoir and had a great studio for the shoot. Not to mention, the preparations of getting my make-up done was also an added bonus to the experience.
What inspired you to book a boudoir session?
I recently went through a divorce; struggled with self worth, emotional damage/stress and I pushed through a lot of storms to get to where I am today. – , keep my head held high, and to continue to be the strong, confident, independent woman that I am today.

What made you choose Miranda?
With my recent change in life, I wanted to find something memorable to experience, something that I did just for me. I was referred by my best friend (she had photos taken prior by Miranda), she also attended my session with me for moral support.
Would you recommend this experience to a friend?
Absolutely, I already have! The experience was fantastic and so empowering to me. I would highly recommend any woman to get photos taken from Miranda, no matter what walk of life, you will not regret it.

Any final thoughts?
I would have never thought that a photo shoot of myself could do so many positive things. After struggling with the idea of a broken marriage and the finality of a divorce as a young adult, my self image of who I thought I now was, was damaged. My friends and family called me words such as beautiful, strong, and confident, but at times that was the opposite of how I was feeling. This photo shoot was truly for myself. I was finally able to “see” that beautiful, strong, confident woman and be proud of it. The photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined and I am so proud of myself for being courageous enough to do something a little risque. Thank you Miranda for giving me this gift, it was a pleasure working with you on these photos!


Were you nervous about your session?
I was very nervous! But as soon as I arrived and started talking with you and Jamie while getting my hair and makeup done, I began to relax. Once we got started I was totally comfortable!


What did you like best about your boudoir experience?
I loved how confident and sexy I felt during the session and the huge confidence boost it gave me seeing the photos for the first (and hundredth) time. Your guidance on posing made a huge difference in my confidence level. I was so worried going into it that I was going to look awkward but you made it so easy to look great and feel confident throughout the shoot.

What made you choose Miranda?
A friend’s recommendation. I started following on instagram and knew that if I was going to do a session I wanted you to do it. I couldn’t be happier and will definitely be back to do it again!

 

Did the experience help give you a more positive perception of yourself?
Absolutely. It is such an amazing feeling to see the end results. It gave me a huge confidence boost and has encouraged me to do more for myself, more often.

 

Would you recommend the experience to a friend?
Absolutely! It was wonderful. You were so great to work with, I felt comfortable with you from the very start which says a lot because I am usually very shy and awkward, especially for being as nervous as I was. You made the entire process east and your talent is undeniable. I am so thankful for the experience and to be able to give my husband (and myself ) this gift!
