I absolutely LOVED getting to know this woman from start to finish. She is kind, and humble beyond belief. She is an absolute knock-out (And could easily double for Mila Kunis) But that’s all besides the point. She is beautiful from the inside out, and I am BEYOND thrilled about what this session did for her and her self confidence. <3 Check out some of my favorites from her boudoir session!
Have you ever done a boudoir shoot before? If so, how does your shoot with Jaclyn compare to your prior experience? nope 🙂 virgin here.
Why did you do your boudoir shoot? I did my boudoir shoot for a number of reasons. I had always wanted to do one because I really struggle with self-image, lack of confidence, and self-worth. I thought seeing myself in a beautiful photo would help me see that I am THAT BITCH and I don’t need to compare myself. I also wanted to embrace being super feminine because all of my hobbies are things in which I wear masculine clothing or athletic wear AND I never do my hair and makeup (I work from home in my PJs) , so I wanted to dress up and have fun 🙂 my final reason was that I take pretty good care of myself and I want to have these photos to look back on and be like “damn ok, I had it going on”
What was your favorite part of the session? THE WINGS. just an aspiring VS model kardashian/jenner over here lol. no honestly it was how COMFORTABLE i felt with jaclyn shooting. i was anxious because i know i can’t keep it together for a ‘straight -faced’ photo and i literally had 0 problems doing it (for most of the poses, some cracked us up lol). it’s an extremely vulnerable situation to be in so it was great that she has such a comforting energy and i felt like myself 100%
What did doing this shoot do for your self confidence, self worth, and self image? Tell me your story. I literally felt like I was on a high for the day of the shoot and days after looking at my images. like I could not believe that was ME?! It’s amazing how you can see yourself in a whole new light and be like holy shit, I am beautiful?! I highly recommend this as an act of self-care because it is SO FUN and it made me feel so good about myself. it really has brought me that wow, I DID that and it turned out amazing, what else can i do now?! honestly I’m still in shock that those photos are of me I’m just in awe I could cry lol. if you’re having issues with confidence, self-worth, and self-image, DO IT!!!! you deserve to feel absolutely BEAUTIFUL the way others see you <3 it’s so hard to see that in yourself sometimes but your images will scream it so loud at you, you won’t be able to miss it.
Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different? I was expecting it to be incredible because i knew multiple women who had a session with jaclyn and they gave raving reviews. and i saw their photos and they were just so insanely perfect i was in awe. however, the self-critic that i am, i was like well I’m sure it will be awesome and she’s an amazing photographer but there’s no way mine will be THAT good, because it’s ME. wrong!!! it was what i expected but then times a million. i didn’t expect to feel SO comfortable with both jaclyn and beth. they made me feel like a supermodel and definitely calmed my jitters.
What was the best part of your experience? Would you change anything? I would not change A THING. the whole experience is wonderful from the moment you walk in until the end. the best part is really hard to say because it’s all so great… but feeling special, pampered, hyped up, and beautiful, really does a lot for a girl. the ordering appointment might be the best part because the look you get on your face when you see yourself on that screen is priceless. i was red as a tomato and smiling from ear to ear. i couldn’t believe it hahaha.
