“I have never done a boudoir photoshoot before! It was something I’ve longed to do and when the opportunity came up for me to do finally do a photoshoot I jumped for it! I did this photoshoot to remind myself that beneath my baggy clothes and tired eyes I’m not just a tired messy mother. I’m a whole person! A women who loves her family and wants to love my post child body. And these photos do not disappoint! The pre edited photos were stunning but the post edited photos match how I see myself in my head!
My favorite part of my photoshoot with Angela was probably the posing. I learned that I can in fact do some maneuvering with my body!
This photoshoot bolstered my self confidence to an all time high. I felt like a model.
I love knowing that I don’t have to be just a hot mess, that people can look at me and see that I have a whole identity besides my title as a mother.
I feel like there is a Goddess hidden inside me that I can unleash anytime I want, whereas before the shoot my inner Goddess had to be locked up at all times.
My experience wasn’t necessarily what I was expecting! Haha I was expecting to be shy and uncomfortable seeing as I’ve never been that exposed in front of someone before. But honestly it felt freeing and empowering!
The best part of my photoshoot was learning that I can do some challenging poses and obviously seeing the half finished pictures! It was shocking seeing the photos and realizing that the person in the photos was me!
The hardest thing I found during the photoshoot was the facial expressions! 😅 every time I thought I was relaxed I had to have a gentle reminder, though I found laughing helped to get my facial expressions just right!
I couldn’t possibly think of anything I would’ve changed for a first time boudoir shoot!
If I had any friends who still lived out here in Washington I’d be telling them all about how amazing this process was and definitely would recommend they jump at the opportunity to do a boudoir photoshoot with Angela!”
