Self love. I know, easier said than done sometimes. (I’m writing this as I sit here in baggy sweats, too much dry shampoo and still trying to fully recover from overdoing it on the weekend. Not really feeling like a sexpot right now.) Why do we let the opinions of others get in our heads? Fuck them. Would you speak to your mother, sister or daughter the way you speak to yourself? If the answer is no, it’s probably time to give yourself a break.
I really loved her review about her session. When I heard she had done this several times before, I was a little nervous. How would I compare to the other photographers? What if she was happier with them? The last thing I thought was that SHE wasn’t feeling confident! But she was amazing in front of the camera! So relaxed and up for anything.
The emails I get after the sessions are my favorite. These ladies leave on such a high and they haven’t even seen the photos yet! We want every single woman to leave our studio with a little switch in their hips, feeling like the total badass we get to see on the other side of the camera. Here’s what she had to say about it…
“ I do not even know how to put into words how great this experience has been. I started doing these shoots 8 years ago, since that time I have racked up about 15 different shoots by 4 amazing photographers. A friend introduced Boudoir to me… I had done a Pin-up shoot prior to my first boudoir, the pictures and experience turned out great, but it just wasn’t me and not really something I would want to do again. After doing so many shoots the outcome starts looking the same. The only way, for me to shake it up was to change photographers. While all of them are beautiful, this set from Nicole is my favorite.
I am not a confident person, my physical flaws have been pointed out to me my entire life; I have a dent in the middle of my chest, funky feet, “hockey sticks” as legs, you’re too skinny! did you gain weight? blah, blah, blah… I don’t see myself as these pictures depict me, but I am learning with a whole lotta time to be more confident and strong like she is.
My experience with Gina and Nicole was top-notch, they make you feel comfortable right away. I know a lot of ladies think, I could never get naked or half-naked in front of a camera, but you can and they make it so much fun. From the time I walked in the door and sat in Gina’s chair for hair and make-up to Nicole figuring out what I would wear and helping you stand, sit, lay in the perfect position that is flattering to you, these ladies have you covered and are SOOOO good at what they do! Seriously, you have to have an eye for this and Nicole has that eye. Her editing of the photos with the shadows and mix of black and whites and colors is totally bad-ass! Thank you both, we will be doing this again with you in the future! “
