Miranda Parker Photography » Blog

“I was nervous going in to the session, but knew Miranda would take great care of me. As soon as I arrived she made me feel at ease and the butterflies quickly disappeared. She has such a warmth and gentleness to her that immediately made me more comfortable.The entire experience was awesome. My confidence was immediately boosted as soon as I had my hair and makeup done. Then, Miranda showed me a couple pictures from the back of her camera and I felt like a rock star. The first sneak peak she sent was so breathtaking and my confidence soared. I can’t want to see my fiance’s reaction…that will probably be my favorite!
I knew that if I was going to have boudoir photos taken it would only be with Miranda. The beautiful and professional style of her pictures is unlike any other boudoir pictures I’ve seen. There was no way I was going to put myself out there like this with anyone else.”

Miss J was one of my very first boudoir clients over 6 years ago!  Since then, she’s become one of my boudoir hair and make-up stylists, my family stylist for myself and my kids, and I’ve photographed her engagement and wedding!   Recently, we had a second boudoir session for her 1 year wedding anniversary.  How gorgeous is she?! And so talented (she did her own hair and makeup for this shoot) as many of my other clients can attest.

I asked her how she felt about being in front of the camera a second time…

“I didn’t even feel like I was half naked the entire time. I felt like we were just chatting and complimenting each other. Seriously it was such an easy going experience that you really do forget that your in see through outfits or next to nothing outfits or nothing at all. You make the environment so comfortable and relaxing. Even though this is a “special gift” for my husband for our 1 year wedding anniversary. I wanted another go around at this boudoir shoot because I really try to take care of my body. I have gone through different periods in my life where I was heavier and then “skinny fat”. I feel like the last four years doing Crossfit I have gained a lot of confidence in not only my body but in myself. This is something I can always look back on as the years pass and be like “Damn Jamie!” When I look at my photos I can honestly say I felt sexy, in control, and completely confident in myself.”

Thanks girl for allowing me to share some of your images, and thank you sharing your talent with my boudoir clients and myself! <3

As someone who does not like to be the center of attention, I was slightly anxious being the lone subject of a photograph; no one else to divert the attention to! Miranda was made for this job though, she put me right at ease from the moment she welcomed me into her studio. Her personality is calming and warm, and I soon came to realize that I didn’t need to worry about being in front of the camera since she directed during the shoot – you know that you’re getting good images since they are coming from her professional eye.

How girly I felt! Even though I love love love makeup and fashion, it’s not everyday that hair + makeup + outfit are all done and coordinating! I felt glamorous and pretty.

She was hands-down THE BEST. I live over two hours away from her studio, but was happy to make the drive if it meant booking with her. When I first searched for boudoir photographers I had actually started to think I might not do it as so many of the photos I was finding were cheesy or too over the top. But then I found Miranda’s work, which was absolutely beautiful and tastefully seductive. The caliber of her photos were unmatched.

Yes! I was consistently surprised by the beauty she captured; I kept thinking “that’s me?!” during the photo reveal!

Yes, yes, yes! This was a great experience, from start to finish.

I was extremely nervous about my session. I had not eaten that morning because I was so nervous. Miranda and Lacey were so great in helping me get more comfortable with the idea of it all.

I couldn’t pick out a specific part that I liked best. The whole experience was amazing and I could not be more happy with the results. But if I had to choose it would be the beginning of the shoot. Starting off, being my first time on the other side of the camera was kind of a rush that I was really excited to get.

I chose Miranda because her work is amazing. I did some looking at various photographers and hers was hands down my absolute favorite.

Of course! I have never been more excited to look at pictures of myself than after this shoot. I can’t get enough of the fact that they are of me. I even gave my husband an early sneak peek at them, I couldn’t wait until our anniversary!

Definitely! I would even love to do this again for maternity photos some day. I only wish I had done it sooner.

Yes! I was very apprehensive not knowing Miranda and having to be in such a vulnerable position–I am not a very confident person when it comes to what most people consider “sexy” or “hot” , “beautiful” etc….those were all words I never thought I would feel about myself. You made me feel instantly more comfortable and showing me some of the pictures really made me feel like I could trust you to make me look good! So thank you!!

I loved getting my hair done–that was a treat. Also seeing the snapshots along the way was great way for me to feel more comfortable. I liked that.

I had seen some of the pictures on social media that Miranda had done for other ladies and read some of the comments from those who did it first. They all had such great things to say, and the pictures were amazing. All shapes , sizes, etc and they all looked gorgeous!!!

Would you recommend this experience to a friend?

DEFINITELY recommend this experience for ANYONE ! It was empowering.
