When I was chatting with Miss C about her shoot, she let me know she would be nervous. When she saw herself glammed up after hair & makeup, and we began shooting, I could see her nerves melt away! She was just living in the moment.
Read more of Miss C's story below. Women like this is the reason I do what I do, and why I love my job as a boudoir photographer. If I can help women see themselves in a new light, and see the beauty that was always within them, then I have done my job.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO DO A BOUDOIR SHOOT?
I decided to do the boudoir shoot with Samantha from Crave Boudoir for a few different reasons. The first being the fact that I have only really started to fully love my body in the last year or so. I have always been extremely critical of my weight and size.
About a year ago I started to truly love the skin I'm in and I needed to do something to finally prove to myself that YES my body is beautiful. The second reason being that I am getting married in July, and what better gift for the man who has ALWAYS seen me as perfect in every single way.
HOW DID YOU FEEL DURING YOUR SHOOT?
As someone who has never even been comfortable in shorts or a bikini, I was extremely nervous to be photographed wearing lingerie. As soon as a met Sam, I immediately felt comfortable, she was so kind and genuinely excited for the shoot. She is truly amazing at what she does. While shooting I felt so empowered, with Sam guiding me and the music playing- I felt incredible!
HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU SAW YOUR IMAGES FOR THE FIRST TIME?
When I first saw the images at my reveal the feeling was overwhelming. I could not believe it was me in the pictures. Not because they were edited or altered, but because of the confidence that I could see in myself. It was a whirlwind of emotions that I was feeling. But mostly I was so proud of myself for doing something that up until recently I never would have done, EVER!
HAS THE PHOTO SHOOT HELPED YOUR CONFIDENCE?
This entire experience has made such a positive impact on me. I am more comfortable in my own skin then ever before! I have been working on loving myself for a long time, and I've always wanted to be confident in my own skin. Doing the boudoir shoot with Sam at Crave Boudoir was the final step of my self love journey, it was grand finale of realizing just how sexy, bold and brave I am.
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND OTHER WOMEN TRY A BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT?
If you are looking for an experience that will make you feel amazing in your own skin, I would highly suggest you contact Sam at Crave Boudoir. The feeling doesn't stop when the shoot ends, it's a feeling that will last forever! I think that every single women needs to experience a boudoir session with Sam- It is truly life changing!
