We love sharing more than just beautiful photos from boudoir sessions. We like being able to share stories and words about why this is important and what makes women want something like this. Here’s some amazing words from Ms. A’s boudoir session.
Tell us your story, a little bit about you and why you decided to do a boudoir session? Is your story what made you decide to do this for yourself?
I am typically a “wait and feel the situation out before you do anything” kind of person, at the same time, I’m laid back and go with the flow nine time out of ten. The main reason why I decided to do a boudoir session, is because I wanted to gift my fiancé (now husband) something that he never seen before of me and also something that he would never expect. A secondary reason was for me to step out of my comfort zone and do something for myself at the same time. My story is what made me decide to do this for myself.
What was your biggest concern prior to booking your Boudoir Session? How do you feel now?
I was really nervous when booking my session because I did not know what to expect, and my biggest concerns prior was what the atmosphere will be like, and what my body will look like on camera. Now, after my Boudoir Session I feel proud and even more confident and comfortable in my own skin.
What, specifically, did you enjoy most about your portrait session and why?
I haven’t been pampered with hair/makeup and the center of attention at all prior to my session, so taking the time to just do something fun for a change was amazing, getting to laugh and feel like a celebrity was more than I could have ever imagined. This was especially a welcomed experience, given the stress-related life events I have/had been experiencing.
Were you comfortable during your session? How did I make you feel? Did my posing instruction help you feel more confident?
I was extremely comfortable with my session. You made me feel like we have known each other for years, we just clicked. The posing instruction was a God send! You made me feel more like a model vs a wet towel just laying and hanging around the room. (To which I was worried about. Lol)
What did this shoot do for your self confidence, self worth, and self image? Did you discover anything about yourself that you didn’t know was there or that you forgot was there? How has your boudoir experience affected you or changed you? Tell me your story.
This shoot made me realize that no matter what, I am beautiful both inside and out! I felt like I stood taller each and every passing second of the shoot. I discovered that no matter what life is throwing at me, that it is extremely important to take the time to do something nice for myself. In doing so, it allows me to reflect and focus on what it is that I want to do, and to be kind to me. As a person, walking through each day almost “zombie like” it becomes an ordinary, mundane thing- a person needs to add some spice to their life and have something to look forward to! This session was just that for me. It came at the most perfect time in my life, and since then- I’ve been able to take time for myself to spoil myself once a month.
Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different?
I really did not know what to expect, to be honest. I was hoping there would be laughter and sharing of life stories/events… which there certainly was! I am very grateful for it. However- I did not realize that at the end of the session, walking out the Femme Farm’s door, I’d feel as if I had gained two new amazing friends, who would be there for me on one of the most important and monumental days of my life
What advice would you give someone who is nervous about or hesitant to book their own boudoir experience with me?
I’d tell them, go and do it! Run with it and don’t look back! It was the most fun and uplifting experience that you will have. Just be yourself and be prepared for an amazing experience of a life time!
