Read ahead to see how Ms. G felt about her session, she had me in tears by the second paragraph. Maybe it’s because this story resonates so much with me… Why do we feel less than after children? Our bodies do this miraculous thing, and then we look at ourselves completely different. One more shoot that just shows my why… Empowering women left and right. <3
Why did you do your boudoir shoot?
I chose to do my boudoir shoot as a means of empowerment and reconnection to myself and my body. The changes that come along with pregnancy and post partum are beautiful but disorienting, I felt so disconnected with myself. My body felt like it was meant to produce for others and didn’t feel as beautiful to me anymore. I wanted to feel beautiful, sexy, and empowered again.
What was your favorite part of the session?
The consistent feedback and hyping up I got from Jaclyn during the shoot meant so much to me. I felt unsure of myself and how things would turn out, but her reassurance made me feel so comfortable.
What did doing this shoot do for your self confidence, self worth, and self image? Tell me your story.
So much. I couldn’t believe I looked like this when I got my pictures. Like, I always tell my partner he’s crazy when he compliments me or calls me sexy. Is this what he sees? Doing this has made me realize what he sees a little more, and I think will change the ways I prioritize myself and cultivating my self image. I hope to take the time to do more like this in the future.
Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different?
From what I heard from others experience before having their shoot my experience was very much in line with what they were telling me. I expected support and encouragement throughout and that’s what I received!
What was the best part of your experience? Would you change anything?
The best part was seeing my photos and literally wanting to cry. The pictures were all so beautiful. I wouldn’t change a thing.
