I wanted to give my husband a special Christmas gift and he is always asking for sexy photos of me, so I decided a sexy, nerdy boudoir would be perfect. He loves Star Wars, Transformers, and thinks I would make an awesome Poison Ivy cosplay so I chose those for the shoot.
What made you decide to hire my studio for your session?
My friend hosted a party through you and I thought it looked fun. The prices were reasonable and the photos advertised were beautiful.
How were you feeling before your shoot?
What feelings were going through your head?
I was extremely nervous before my shoot. I thought I was way too fat and ugly to be getting boudoir photos. I also backed out several times leading up to the shoot because I was so worried about how I would look and if I would be judged for my size. However, I also wanted to try something new and once I starting getting my outfits and personalizing it to me I felt more excited about the shoot.
Now that you've completed your photo shoot experience, how was it?
My photo shoot was AMAZING! Lesley made me feel so comfortable the entire time and she jokes which eased my tension. I felt really beautiful in my outfits and Lesley had some great ideas for poses. I was really excited that Lesley was open to my ideas as well. My photos turned out gorgeous and my husband loves them so much. He had one of my digital downloads printed as a poster for above our bed.
How did your photographer make you feel during your session?
Lesley made me feel very comfortable. Once we started, I didn't feel nervous at all! Lesley is very straight forward in her direction to get a good photo. She helps pick poses that make you feel beautiful and not like a fat lard!
What would you say to someone considering doing a boudoir session?
DO IT! You will not regret it! Do it for yourself! It is extremely empowering and a confident boost that most of us need.
Is there anything that would have made this experience better?
For me the experience was great as is, I wouldn't have changed a thing about it.
