I can go on all day about boudoir but it’s important to hear what client’s experience as well. Today Kristine is featured on the blog and here is what she has to say:
I’ve always wanted to do a boudoir for myself. I’ve hesitated on booking because I always had it in my mind that I wasn’t the right size to do it and that I needed to lose weight before I could. After working with Jackie a couple times for other non-boudoir sessions, I decided to take the plunge and just do it. I find there is never a perfect time to do something and that you just need to do it.
The experience was amazing. I was on the nervous side while having my hair and makeup done. Once my makeup was finished, I was almost in tears seeing myself that way. I knew it was me but couldn’t believe it was me. Once we got into the session, I immediately relaxed. The best part of the day was just feeling amazing about myself and hearing Jackie’s reaction to photos on the back of the camera.
The first thought that comes to my mind is disbelief when I saw my images. I couldn’t believe the woman on the screen was me. I may have even asked if that was really me. Once it kind of sunk in that it was me. I just seen myself as this amazingly beautiful woman, which is not how I normally perceive myself to be.
The biggest benefit for myself, was actually being able to look at myself in the photos and go yes thats me and I am freaking beautiful as I am. Just having that feeling of feeling beautiful changes everything.
Don’t wait to do a session, just do it. Just jump head first into it and do it. You will have no regrets.
I think boudoir is an amazing thing to do. It changes the way you think about yourself. With myself I’ve gone to a mindset where I can actually look at myself in a mirror and not pick out every little thing that I see as a flaw. I can look at myself in the mirror and says there’s the beautiful woman I love.
The whole boudoir experience was my favourite part, but if you are going to make me choose one, it would be seeing my images and not believing it’s me. Seeing myself in that more positive light has changed everything for me.
