CLIENT INTERVIEW // TOLEDO, OHIO BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER
Our babe today prefers to stay anonymous so you’ll see more booty and boob shots than normal but don’t let that distract you from reading her STORY. It’s powerful, and one I know so many of you can relate to. A new mom, struggling with loss and the feeling that her body had failed her - there’s so much redemption in this interview that it’s worth a read. Let me introduce you to Mrs. C.
How old are you?
What do you do for a living?
What made you take the leap of faith and do a boudoir session?
I have an 18-month girl, a new job, and recently suffered a miscarriage. I was not feeling like myself anymore, not to mention feeling sexy. I definitely don't have a lot of time for myself anymore so I decided to do this for me to help with my own self-esteem and find me again.
Did you have any obstacles or fears about the session?
My biggest fear was being in lingerie in front of others and the camera. I had not come to terms with my new body yet...there were curves in places I had never had them before.
How did you like working with my team?
Everyone was great! The Courtneys made me feel so comfortable from the minute I walked into the studio. From the gorgeous hair and makeup, to the encouraging words and smiles during the shoot, I felt like I was among friends. It didn't take long to get me out of my shell with all of the encouragement from Lindsay either...I felt like we were friends just taking some pictures! It was an amazing day!
How did you like your hair + makeup?
Hair and makeup were stunning! My eyes popped and the eye makeup wasn't too dark...even better than I had for my wedding! My hair was amazing...my husband couldn't stop staring at me when I got home!
Did you enjoy your session?
I loved every minute of the session...I felt so comfortable around everyone and the studio was open, airy, and bright. You all made me feel amazing and I feel like I want to do a session every year!
What was your favorite part?
Other than feeling like a supermodel, I loved hearing Lindsay tell me I was killing it! It made me feel so sure and sexy! I loved getting the sneak-peeks during the shoot too because it made me so excited for the reveal!
Did you like your images?
Love, love, loved the images! They were just as amazing as I had hoped they would be! Lindsay is an amazing photographer and was able to capture a sexy side of myself that I wasn't always sure was there. She also captured me - the me I found again - in some of the smiling pictures!
How did you feel when you saw your images?
I was swooning! I couldn't believe it was me...I totally felt like I could see my images in print somewhere :)
Would you ever do another session?
Yes Yes Yes!!!!!
Will you tell your friends about this session?
Absolutely! I told my best friend and invited her to the group! She has been interested in a boudoir shoot for years!! I can't wait to show her my pictures so she will be enticed to book a shoot!
Do you have any advice for women interested in booking a boudoir session?
You should just do it! It's hard to put yourself out there in front of other people...especially in lingerie...but Lindsay and the Courtneys make you so super comfortable and you feel like you're amongst friends! You will walk away feeling so sexy and powerful, I promise!
Did anything change regarding the way you see yourself after the session?
I feel stronger than I did before...and sexy, almost like I have a secret :)
Did you enjoy working with me and my team? (Be honest!)
I loved every minute of it...I felt like a member of the team (family) from the first moment and you made me feel like I was the sexiest woman you ever photographed! I felt like a million bucks when I left after my shoot!
