"I felt sexy. It was my birthday and I owned it!" | Duluth Boudoir Interview with Leah

How old were you at your session?34

What made you decide to book a session?My cousin, Marcie, referred me. I saw her photos and they are BEAUTIFUL! I wanted to look and feel that good!

What was originally holding you back from booking a session?My body image, cost, & distance (I live in the Twin Cities).

What were you most nervous about for your session?Not liking the way I looked in my pictures/looking silly/unflattering in the photos. I was never good at serious-faced photos.

How did you feel about yourself before your session?Better than I felt in a long time. I just won a weight loss competition and got back from a vacation in Mexico! I was feeling really good!

Describe your experience.It was WONDEFUL! I loved getting dolled up - not having to put that pressure on me to do my own hair and makeup was SO nice! I loved having so many outfit options! Jes and Emily made me feel so comfortable.

How did you feel about yourself after your session?I felt sexy. It was my birthday and I owned it!

Were you nervous before your viewing session?Yes

How did you feel about yourself after seeing your photos?I felt beautiful!

What were your favorite products?The album

What would you tell anyone interested, but maybe hesitant, in book a session of their own?Jes said she can take 10lbs OFF with the camera. It's all about lighting and camera angles! Don't wait until you think you've got the perfect body - let's be real, it's not gonna happen. And you'll never be this young again!!! JUST DO IT! You'll look back in 10-20 years and be thankful you did - and wish you had that body again :)

How was working with Jes and Emily?Phenomenal. They are fun, easy to work with, and super talented. What's not to love?!

Will you be doing another session?Hopefully!!
