This beautiful (GORGEOUS) lady is a fellow twin mommy and has an incredible story. I’m so lucky to have had the pleasure of meeting her, and photographing her.
When someone tells you that you aren’t beautiful, or your mom body just isn’t so great as it was before…this can do terrible things to the emotional & mental state of a mom and a woman. Every mom puts their children first. But we are still strong, confident, independent, WOMEN, who deserve to feel beautiful, empowered and wanted…even with a “mom body”.
We had such a fun time shooting together, with lots of giggles along the way (particularly when I showed her what she looked like on the back of my camera). As the session went on, this gorgeous mama had transformed. A new beginning was happening right before my eyes.
When she saw her slideshow on my big screen for the first time, her reaction was priceless. We both teared up. It really is a magical thing to see a woman become empowered by this experience.
Here’s what Miss D. had to say before her Boudoir Session:
What motivates you to pursue a boudoir shoot right now?
Learn to be proud of my body. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.
On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the most confident) how would you rate how you feel about your body? Elaborate.
What three words would you select to describe the look/ feel of the images you hope to create?
Natural, Soft, Sexy
What, if anything, would make you feel more comfortable and confident heading into your shoot?
Aside from beautiful images, what else do you hope to get out of this experience?
Increase in self-confidence.
