Since the recent launch of our Brand Ambassador Program, my team and I have been absolutely swooning over the incredible women who have applied thus far.
It’s such a joy to get to know more of our community members through hearing your incredible stories about personal growth as well as what makes you so passionate about empowering others.
Last week, we had the pleasure of interviewing our newest BA, Lorena to ask her some questions about her boudoir journey and what led her to join the squad!
Being a Brand Ambassador is so much more than receiving the amazing perks (like a complimentary mini session once every 6 months!) that come along with it and Lorena is a prime example of what that means.
As she puts it, “being a Brand Ambassador means spreading positivity to others as well as continuing to remind myself that we’re all beautiful no matter what.”
Lorena’s first shoot with us was at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah AND (wait for it…) next month Lorena is going to meet me in Tulum to do her second shoot in celebration of her 40th birthday!
Read on to get to know more about this incredible soul…
What led you to boudoir photography?
I had just retired from the Air Force and never really felt very “girlie” I was in a male dominant career field.
What drew you to Lindsay in particular?
I had been following her on Instagram for a while and just fell in love with her work.
How would you describe your first session experience to a friend who was thinking about doing one themselves?
I’ve said to them that I was a ball of emotions on my 2 hour drive out to West Wendover. I was nervous and anxious. Once I met Lindsay I felt completely at ease. During my shoot, my nerves eased up and felt comfortable. Afterwards I felt amazing and surprised that I actually did that.
What was it like to see your images for the first time and what products did you choose to display them?
I was completely blown away during my photo reveal, I cried and had never felt more beautiful. I got the metal art display, an album and an 8 X 12 print.
How does it feel to look back on your images now?
I love looking at my pics, it’s a reminder that I’m beautiful when I’m not feeling so hot about myself.
How has your relationship with your body shifted since having your session with Lindsay?
I’ve learned to love my body a lot more and to not be so hard on myself.
Why did you decide to apply for our Brand Ambassador program?
I love everything about Lindsay’s photography and I love talking about how great I felt. I want to continue to get the word out there for others to do it.
What does empowerment mean to you and how does boudoir tie into that?
I have two teenage daughters and while at times I’m hard on myself, I’m quickly reminded that we’re all beautiful. My pictures definitely give me that reminder daily.
What self-love advice would you give to your younger self?
I would say to myself that if I want to eat something to just eat and that the size of my clothes don’t define who I am.
We are beyond thrilled to have Lorena onboard to be a source of support and encouragement in our community and can not wait to share more of our Brand Ambassadors with you!
