A Boudoir Perspective from the other Side of the Camera
Even for a boudoir photographer, making the decision to schedule a boudoir portrait session can be both exciting and nerve racking. I know this first-hand because I recently treated myself to the boudoir experience. I knew it would be a blast and also make me a better boudoir photographer. I wanted to share with my clients some of the things I learned in hopes that someone who is feeling too shy to make the commitment will take the leap! As a 47 year old mommy of three, if I can do it anyone can!
So here are my lessons:
1.) It’s intimidating to be on the other side of the camera, especially in your undies!
2.) Relax, it only takes a few minutes and a glass (or 2, who’s counting) of champaign to relax and get you in the groove (so I have heard).
3.) I was rocking it in no time! Victoria’s Secret model I am not, hot momma, I am!
4.) I found my sexy-self just waiting to burst out, HELLO?!
5.) I used the same tricks and tips that I teach my clients and they work! For example, when I found myself lacking confidence, I told myself, “You look frick’n hot!” I’m here to tell you, that attitude comes through in the images! I saw it myself!
6.) I’m glad I had my hair and makeup done. It’s not that I couldn’t have done it myself but it was so nice to treat myself. We just don’t do that enough!
7.) I had so much fun that I walked around on ‘cloud 9’ for the next 2 days.
8.) I looked waaay hotter in the images that I thought I would!
9.) I was waaay more daring that I thought I could be. If you saw someone standing on the window sill in her undies, it wasn’t me, I swear. Enough said!
10.) I can’t believe that I waited so long to do it! It’s a freeing and powerful experience that every woman should experience!
So, if you have been thinking about doing it, stop thinking and just do it!! Most of my clients say that they wish they had not waited so long!
