I LOVE how much thought she put into her survey answers, scroll down to read!
|Did you feel comfortable throughout your session?
Yes! At first I was very nervous about walking around the studio half naked; I don’t even do that at home. That didn’t last long though! By the end of the session, I was walking around the studio completely naked and didn’t feel uncomfortable at all!
|How did you feel when you first saw your images?
At first I had a little vulnerability shock. I feel sometimes as women its hard to look at images of ourselves without picking out every little detail we don’t like about ourselves. However, the more I looked at the images, the more I fell in love with them. I loved that Cassie captured the most raw and real photos that have ever been taken of myself. Yes, I had a full face of makeup on, but at the end of the day, these photos are capturing a moment in time where I’m being vulnerable and quite frankly pretty damn brave. At brave is the most beautiful thing a women can wear.
|Tell your favorite part(s) of your experience
I loved that this experience forced me to see myself the way my fiance sees me. Typically when I look in the mirror I see all the parts of my body that society as ingrained in me since a young age as “flaws” or “problem areas”. My fiance tells me all the times how beautiful and sexy I am to him, but I never truly believed him. However, after seeing the pictures, there was no denying. These pictures made me feel flawless and undeniably sexy, which is something I have never felt before.
|What are your thoughts on your final products?
The photos were beautiful! The leather cover and thick durable pages made the book feel nothing short of luxurious!
I was incredibly shocked at how excited I was to show the photos off! These are a gift for my fiance the night before our wedding, but I truly want to show all my friends!
|Would you do another shoot with us?
|What advice do you have for other women who are considering a boudoir session?
Do it! You deserve it! I spent months contemplating whether or not I should do a boudoir shoot, and even up until my shoot I still wasn’t convinced I was making a good decision. I thought I needed to lose weight and tone my body before stepping in front of the camera. Not only was I wrong, but I now know that this wasn’t a photo shoot to capture the “ideal” body type. This was a shoot to capture me. All of me. All of my rolls. All of my hair. All of my freckles. All of my cellulite. This was a photo shoot to capture me, in this beautiful stage of my life.
