Have you ever felt like you’ve lost your confidence and self-worth? Maybe you’ve been through tough times that have made you forget how beautiful and sexy you truly are. Ms. L can relate to that feeling all too well. For years, she struggled with self-confidence after toxic relationships and an assault left her feeling unworthy. But then, she discovered boudoir photography. The idea of having a session to capture her beauty seemed intimidating at first, but she decided to step outside her comfort zone and do it anyway. And let me tell you, it was one of the best decisions she ever made. If you’re feeling hesitant or nervous about booking your own boudoir session, I want to share Ms. L’s boudoir session story with you and offer some words of encouragement.
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?
For the last six years I’ve been trying to rebuild myself confidence. After a couple toxic relationships and being assaulted I struggled to feel beautiful. I thought maybe if I could see pictures of myself looking beautiful then I could remember that I was. I’ve always thought boudoir sessions to be very sexy. So I thought I should just be comfortable with being uncomfortable and do it! So I did.
What was your biggest concern prior to booking your Boudoir Session? How do you feel now?
I was concerned that I had made a mistake and it wouldn’t help at me feel sexy again. I was wrong. It helped a lot.
What, specifically, did you enjoy most about your portrait session and why?
I really loved the encouragement from Melissa. Telling what to do helped me feel less awkward and more confident. Especially when she would say beautiful!
Were you comfortable during your session? How did I make you feel? Did my posing instruction help you feel more confident?
I was more comfortable than I thought I was going to be. You made me feel like we’ve been friends for years. No judgements or rude comments. Posing instructions made me feel like a model, it was great!
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 definitely helped me feel so much better about myself. I feel more confident and sexier than I did when I walked in here. I’m hoping this is just the beginning of building it back up.
Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different?
No, this was so much more than I expected. As a mother of a 13 I don’t really get dressed up or do my make up. Or take the afternoon to treat myself to something fun. This was such a great experience and I would recommend anyone do this.
What advice would you give someone who is nervous about or hesitant to book their own boudoir experience with me?
Get comfortable with being uncomfortable! You’ll love the experience. Rebuilding self love and confidence is so important as women! We deserve to feel sexy in our own skin no matter who is looking. You got this mama!!!
