Introducing client interviews on the blog! A more in-depth look into what a session is like and the empowerment that comes with doing a boudoir session. Read all about my beautiful friend Susie’s boudoir experience below:
Q: How old are you?
A: 47 years young:)
Q: What prompted you to do a boudoir session? Tell us a bit about your journey of self love.
A: I wanted to have something tangible that I could view and reflect on in my later years…I also wanted to do this while I still felt somewhat youthful. I envisioned a magical experience in a dark forest with butterflies. To our surprise, a squirrel joined us on the shoot which was definitely a highlight. I’ve struggled with self acceptance for most of my life so having this experience was a big step towards self-love. It was also super fun, and I absolutely adore the photographer and her work.
Q. How did you feel during your session? What was it like for you?
A. Initially I felt nervous but after a few minutes, I was pretty comfortable in my own skin (literally) and had a great time. Lindsay is awesome at making her clients feel comfortable and she makes it fun.
Q.Did you have any fears or concerns before doing your session?
A. I did have concerns. I was afraid that I would appear out of shape, overweight or even ugly in my photos. I know those words are harsh, but I’m still working on my self-image. Doing this photo shoot was part of my journey towards acceptance.
Q.What was your favorite part of your boudoir experience?
A. My favorite part of the session was being outside in a woodsy part of GG park…the butterflies and squirrel made it magical and the mini-nakey session was fun and empowering. I really didn’t mind if anyone saw me in my birthday suit. I felt free.
Q. How did you feel about seeing your photos for the first time?
A. I felt nervous and then pleasantly surprised by some of my pictures. The photos came out beautifully thanks to my awesome photographer. 🙂
Q. Any thoughts on the power of boudoir photography for women?
A. My thoughts on the power of boudoir photography revolve around a lot of “wow” moments and accepting oneself as beautiful, brave and adventurous. All women should experience this. I’m glad I did.
