Miss L. had been holding onto a gift certificate for a shoot with me for nearly a year before she called. She was nervous. She was worried about being in front of the camera. She wasn’t sure how to “be sexy.” We chatted on the phone for a while and talked about the experience my clients have in my studio. Everyone is a little nervous, everyone is uncomfortable in front of the camera (at first!) and most women don’t know how to pose like a Victoria’s Secret model. We talked about what she had in mind for her images and went over all of her questions. Reluctantly, but still with a little excitement, she scheduled her shoot.
On the day of her boudoir session, L. arrived with her Mom to cheer her on and lots of outfits to choose from. We started hair and makeup and after shooting her first look, she was hooked on the boudoir experience. Having a blast, feeling totally comfortable and looking drop dead gorgeous. At the end of the shoot, hugs and lots of ‘thank yous’ were exchanged. I knew she’d had an amazing experience and left here with a renewed sense of confidence and femininity. I love that! It’s was makes my job so incredibly special. Seeing a woman, a real woman, not a model, blossom in front of the camera is magic.
After Christmas, L. sent me an email with the subject line “He LOVED my pictures!!
