When Jeni messaged me and said she wanted to have a boudoir shoot I was super excited.. then when she told me she wanted to wear her Harry Potter sweater during her shoot, I almost died! This isn’t the first time I’ve had Harry Potter boudoir shoot, I have been so lucky to have clients that adore Harry Potter as much as I do. Keep reading to hear what Jeni thought about her boudoir shoot.
I have had two kids and you can’t go through that without some changes (or in my case a lot of changes). My worst enemy has always been my own mind, I can’t look in the mirror without hating everything I see. That very loud obnoxious voice is always telling me your butt is too big, your thighs are too jiggly, your stretch marks are sooo deep and red. Even though I know that voice is being ridiculous and it’s never as bad as it seems I want something I can look at and show myself that I am beautiful and shut that voice up when it gets too loud.
Getting naked in front of someone I just met. I was terrified that I would see judgement in the eyes of the photographer.
Relieved and excited at the same time. I couldn’t believe that I just did that.
Yes, I am an awful decision maker. I loved being able to hold every picture and lay them all out to decide which ones I liked the best. Maggie helped a lot by giving her opinion, not only as a photographer but as a woman too.
Amazing! I knew I had something that I would cherish for a long time.
Totally different but at the same time still me. I’m not a photogenic person and I hate taking pictures but the way Maggie had me pose and hold my head gave me a confidence that I can see in the pictures.
You truly have talent for what you do. I was terrified going into this that I would get to the studio, get naked and be expected to know what to do. That wasn’t the case at all. Maggie listened to me about my insecurities and never pushed me to do anything. She was on my time and her goal was to make sure I was comfortable. She was kind and being a mother herself, she were very understanding. I never felt judgment from her and I know that showed in the pictures. She helped bring that confidence out in me. Thank you!
Just do it! Stop making excuses for the reasons you’re afraid to and just do it. It’s an empowering feeling knowing that you did it. You won’t be sorry.
