I can’t get enough of this beauty and her exquisite gallery!

I love when my clients feel like old friends and because we work so closely together during the boudoir photo session process- this happens all the time. Lots of warm hugs in the studio.

Read on to see just how nervous (and later on relaxed) Shaari felt during her boudoir session. Enjoy!

Q: What made you want to schedule a boudoir session with Lindsay Carlisle Boudoir?

A: I became interested in doing a boudoir session about 2 years ago. I found her on Facebook a couple months ago and began to follow her page. She is truly an artist. She captures images that are beautiful without Photo Shopping them.  I love that!

Q:How did you feel in the days leading up to your session?

A: Oh my gosh….I was so nervous. I wanted to cancel. I had doubts about my size, the wardrobe choices I had purchased, feeling like I’m not photogenic. All sorts of self doubt.

So I sent her an email. She responded quickly and assured me that everything would be fine and I am not alone in being nervous.  She made me feel at ease. I then knew I had to follow through.

Q: What was the actual session experience like for you? Were you nervous? How did you feel while being photographed?

A: I arrived and immediately felt like an old friend.  I was greeted with a warm smile and a hug! I knew right then it was going to be fine.  I went in and sat for hair and make up.  We all chatted and by the time it was done I was completely relaxed and ready.

The actual shoot was fun. Lindsay demonstrated each pose (sometimes more than once). It was so fun!

 Q: Did having your boudoir photos taken help shape your ideas at all about self-love and body acceptance?

 A: Absolutely. Seeing my images has made me feel beautiful. I never would have thought I’d have a hard time choosing my collection. I went in thinking I probably would only like 1 or 2…. Boy was I wrong! I loved them all.

 Q: How do you feel now, the days or weeks following your boudoir session? Would you do it again?

A: I will absolutely do it again. It was an experience I recommend every woman do at least once.
