It's been soooo long. I know. But I've got some goodies coming your way, starting with this amazing client interview!

These interviews are some of my favorite blog posts because I let my clients tell you about their experience with their own words. It's so easy for me to tell you why doing a boudoir shoot is amazing, empowering, emotional, etc, etc.... but I know my words don't mean as much as someone who's been on the other side of the camera.

So here's one of my faves that I've been holding on to and I can't wait to share with you today. Maternity boudoir is it's very own kind of sexy and this mama killed it.

What made you take the leap of faith to do a boudoir session?
I've always admired the confidence that flows from viewing images of these sessions. I made a joke with Lindsey about doing a Maternity Boudoir Session and then it got real... I decided I owed it to myself to "try" and at least see if it was possible to view myself the same way I had view these beauties in the past of seeing boudoir sessions.

Did you have any obstacles or fears about doing this session?
Yes!!! Lol! I was honestly terrified! I'm very very modest, and have some pretty low self esteem.

How did you like working with my team?
Team was great!! Aside from their talent with the hair and makeup (which was just the start of making me feel so beautiful!) they were also so "chill" and seemed as if we had all been friends for years! They made me feel comfortable and relaxed. It was a great way to start, especially being so damn nervous! Lol!

How did you like your hair and makeup?
Hair & Makeup were awesome!! They asked my opinions but I didn't really have any! I wanted them to kind of make that decision for me, and they chose perfectly! Soft, feminine but confident....Thank you again ladies!

Was the session different than you expected?
Not really. It was what I had imagined... and felt silly afterwards for being so darn nervous! Lol!

What was your favorite part?
Being dressed by Lindsay!! Her selection was beautiful to choose from! I've never even worn anything as beautiful as some of the things she had me wear!!

What was your least favorite part?
Cliche... but when it was over! Lol! She gave me more then enough time, and was very patient with me... but it was just a really great experience and I didn't want it to end!

Did you like your images?
Like..... hahaha... that's a silly word to use! I ADORE my images!! I viewed them with Lindsay over Skype. And even just from my tablet viewing them on her monitor I could tell they were amazing already!!

How did you feel when you saw your images?
Emotional. 
I'm an awkward person as it is, but I sat there most of the time and giggled. It wasn't until Lindsey told me that she didn't edit myself in any of the images that it finally hit me... that was really ME!! I genuinely felt beautiful!!! In 31 years of my life, I truly looked at myself in a way I hadn't! And mind you, not too many women feel genuinely "beautiful" at 30 Weeks Pregnant!! Insert overflow of tears here.... lol!

Would you ever do another session?
Yes!!!!!! I would love to do an actual Boudoir session next! There's a fine line with it being maternity, and she did an amazing job at keeping it tasteful and beautiful AND still with a touch of sexy!!

Would you tell your friends about this session?
Oh yes!! Many of them couldn't believe I would actually follow through with it! And once I showed them a select few of the images, they were very very impressed!

Do you have any advice for women considering doing a boudoir session?
Just do it girlfriend!!! I didn't walk away with "some images".... I left with much muchhhh more!

Did anything change about the way you see yourself after the session?
Oh heavens yes....my boyfriend has told me time after time how beautiful I am, and even now pregnant, he would still tell me that! It wasn't until I spent this time with Lindsey and her amazing team, that I was able to really see myself in this light. All arrogance aside, I felt so confident and beautiful and as silly as it may seem, I felt Feminine for the first time in a Lonnnnng time. 
She helped me appreciate myself the way a woman should!!!

Did you enjoy working with my team? (Be honest!)
Absolutely 100% and can't wait to do it again!! Thank you!!!!!!

Any final thoughts on your session, or anything you'd like me to know?
I just want to tell you personally how much I appreciate and enjoyed this opportunity. All bs aside, this really changed things for me... in so many ways then having a kick ass maternity album! Lol! Thank you again times a million.
