Every woman that I shoot has a story. Every story is beautiful and unique in its own way. Ms. A’s story is no different. I loved reminding her who she is and that she’s brave, beautiful, and strong. Ms. A, I loved working with you. Read her story below. <3
“I chose to do a boudoir shoot because, honestly, I lost myself. I lost who I was. My brother/best friend died earlier this year. I was broken and devastated. I’ve never dealt with a loss quite that tragic. He used to always tell me, “you gotta live for the moment and take chances and stop being so afraid all the time!” I remembered that and that’s what I did. Along with losing my brother, I also recently became divorced. It cut down my self esteem a little because of my marriage failing. I am in a very healthy relationship now where my girlfriend consistently tells me how beautiful I am. I never really believed her, but after these pictures I’m thought, “Mannnnnnnnn! So this is what I really do look like to other people!! I’m fucking beautiful!” 🤷♀️😍 I have always envied the women who were brave enough to do a boudoir shoot and I figured what a great way to show that I’m not scared any longer!
Honestly, the reveal was my absolute favorite part. I have never felt more beautiful my whole entire life as I did when I was watching the slide show of my pictures. Thank God the lights were off. I had tears streaming down my face. I couldn’t believe it! The experience definitely was not what I was expecting. It was much better, actually. It was warm and welcoming and I was completely comfortable. It wasn’t awkward at all.”
Ms. A, thank you again for telling your story and hiring me to document your journey. I had the best time and loved every one of your images. <3
