How old were you at your session? 23

What made you decide to book a session? A boudoir photo session was on my bucket list, and I wanted something to help cope with post partum depression after having a baby.

What was originally holding you back from booking a session? Expensive and would be out of my comfort zone

What were you most nervous about for your session? That it was out of my introverted comfort zone and that I should wait until my pre-baby body is back.

How did you feel about yourself before your session? Dealing with body image issues and a new body change after having a baby.

Describe your experience. I was so excited that I came overprepared. Emily helped relax some nerves while she spent 1+ hour on hair and makeup. I also got to pick out items to try on and use for the photo session. There were so many good pieces I wasn't even sure I wanted to use what i had brought! Jes came and made things right and we created a mood and outfit choices that best fit me. The music and good laughs helped make the session so much fun!!! I didn't want it to end.

How did you feel about yourself after seeing your photos? I was speechless as I wasn't sure she had the right girl up there. She captured many aspects of me I had never noticed before that was beautiful.

What would you tell anyone interested, but maybe hesitant, in book a session of their own? It's totally worth the investment and gift for a special loved one in your life.

Anything else you want to add? Thank you for your art of boudoir photography and having me be a part of it! My husband and I just love seeing the artistry and professionalism in the wall hanging and albums! Most importantly, thank you for empowering women to be confident, know that beauty is a fact, and helping me know that I am always beautiful. Love you guys!
