Plus-Size Boudoir Beauty!
If you have followed my blog, or you are a member of my ladies-only VIP group on Facebook, (JOIN HERE) you know that I am a strong advocate of body positivity and that I often remind my group members that boudoir photography is for EVERY woman, most definitely including plus size women.
I have clients ranging from size 0 to size 5x. They are all beautiful and I love working with each one of them. Ms. A was a very special client, who came to her wardrobe consultation and photo shoot with some apprehension and a lot of enthusiasm, and left with a ton of confidence. Please check out her story and her gorgeous images.
Why did you do your boudoir photo shoot?
I wanted to create a beautiful Christmas gift for my husband, and I had been wanting to do a boudoir photo shoot for a while. I was just a little insecure about myself, as well, and wanted to improve my confidence.
What was your favorite part of your session?
It’s really hard to choose just one thing, because I loved the entire experience. Relaxing while my hair and makeup were being done was wonderful, and then doing the shoot and seeing my images was better than I could have imagined. I loved it all!
What did doing this shoot do for your self-confidence, self-worth and self-image? Tell me your story.
Oh, my goodness…my self-confidence has been impacted in a big way. I felt myself “owning” it during my photoshoot and really enjoyed “modeling” once I relaxed – and that happened pretty quick!. Every time I look at my gorgeous photos I am beside myself and so happy.
Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, what was different?
It was a lot more involved and better than I could have expected. Starting with the wardrobe consultation. All my life I have had a hard time finding clothes that fit me….let alone cute or sexy things like lingerie. But Kat had great suggestions and I ended up LOVING lingerie shopping and found so many cute things. The key is really listening to an expert about what’s going to flatter YOUR figure.
What was the best part of your experience? Would you change anything?
The best part was surprising myself! I never expected that my boudoir photo session would turn into a gift for myself. And my gorgeous album…I can’t wait to give my husband his Christmas gift. I just hope I can wait!
Is there anything else that you would like us to know?
Just that every woman – now matter your size – should do this for herself. It’s such a worthwhile investment.
