In her own words:
I know the feeling of being scared or nervous but once you get there. Jenny does your makeup and hair. Missy poses you. The nerves and fear melt away. I thought every picture I would look so awful but I had so many amazing pictures I could barely narrow it down.
How did you feel before your session?
I was incredibly nervous and scared. I kept thinking how would my body look, about my rolls or flab. I even almost cancelled. I wrote out a text and everything but something told me not to send it.
What made you book your session?
I wanted to look sexy and remind myself that even though I’m flabby, or have stretch marks that I am a beautiful and sexy woman.
How was it different than you expected?
I’m not sure what I expected but I know I was nervous about feeling judged for being a bigger woman but I never once felt judged or different. I felt like my weight wasn’t even an issue and that’s a big thing for me.
What do you think is the biggest misconception about Boudoir Photography?
That it’s for slim women with “perfect” bodies. Some of the most beautiful pictures I’ve seen are of regular women with beautiful imperfect bodies like myself.
What do you say to people who say they can’t do this because they are too shy, nervous, curvy, skinny, etc?
You’ll never know how beautiful you can feel until you step out of your comfort zone and take a chance. I promise you won’t regret it.
Anything else that you would like to share about your personal story/journey?
I have battled with insecurities all my life and feeling like I wasn’t enough in so many ways. It’s been a hard road but this experience has given me so much confidence and I can’t thank the ladies enough for doing this for me and so many others.
