As a boudoir photographer, I meet women at various stages in their lives. Some are struggling with accepting the changes their bodies may be going through, while others are in full-blown love with who they are. Ms. A was the latter, and her attitude throughout the planning process and her shoot helped to create an amazing experience – for us both!
Ms. A submitted an application to be part of my Body Love Project, and it was clear from our very first conversation that she values and LOVES photography. She had done a boudoir photo shoot back in December, with a photographer close to her home, and said it had been such an uplifting experience that she was eager to do it again. Especially since she would be entering the third trimester of her second pregnancy. Can you do a boudoir shoot when you are 28 weeks pregnant? YOU BET!! Here’s her story…
Have you ever done a boudoir shoot before? How did you experience with Kat compare?
Yes, I did one in December and that was my first experience really stepping out of my comfort zone. My experience with Kat was terrific. She really is there for you every step of the way. We had lots of conversations, text message and email exchanges about wardrobe, hair, makeup and nails. There was never a question that I had that she was not eager to address.
Why did you do your boudoir shoot?
I loved my first boudoir shoot and when I saw the opportunity to participate in the Body Love Project, I jumped at it! I decided to do this shoot empower not only myself, but other women – even those who are pregnant! Pregnancy comes with plenty of body changes, as well as the stretch marks that come with the territory, and I wanted to show other women that there’s nothing they need to hide.
What was your favorite part of your session?
All the poses! We shot so many photos on different sets and using a lot of different outfits that I brought. The variety of poses and the number of images made it really hard to eliminate any during my viewing and ordering session – they were all so different and so gorgeous! I loved getting an additional push out of my comfort zone, and by the end of my session I felt like a pro.
What did doing this shoot do for your self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth?
Before this shoot I was already in a pretty good place with regard to my self-esteem, but this sent me even higher. In my first shoot I was not given the option of doing a topless set or full nudity, so when Kat asked if I wanted to do it I hesitated for a quick minute and then decided to go for it! There was absolutely no pressure – it was just an option presented to me, but that experience truly boosted my self-esteem. And when I saw my images, well, they were simply stunning.
Was the experience what you were expecting? If not, how did it differ from your expectations?
Yes and no. I wasn’t expecting to have the option of a topless of fully nude set. My previous I had done a boudoir shoot hadn’t included that, so it was a fun surprise and I decided I needed to jump at the chance and really push even further outside of my comfort zone. I’m glad that I did!
What was the best part of your experience? Would you change anything?
Absolutely not! Every aspect of this session was simply amazing.
Would you recommend us to a friend?
Of course! Without hesitation.
Is there any thing else you would like to share?
I truly feel that you should always love your body. Every woman is amazing, no matter her age or circumstances. Even if you are pregnant, get out of your comfort zone and embrace the self-confidence that you will feel after doing a boudoir session. You’ll be glad that you did it, because it makes you feel so amazing! The important thing is to have fun and to really embrace that inner goddess lurking down inside of you. Own that confidence and those curves!
