How did you hear about Holly Douglas Boudoir? I searched online for boudoir photographers in the Nashville area. I found a great deal, but looked into each one of them carefully. Holly’s work and mission statement stood out to me from the beginning because it wasn’t just about pictures, but an experience.
Why did you choose Holly Douglas Boudoir for your session? I kept going back to Holly’s webpage and just felt she was the best decision for an experience I was looking for. I firmly believe you get what you pay for and you will not regret a luxurious experience with Holly Douglas Boudoir!
What made you decided to take the leap of faith and do a boudoir session? My son, Levi, got his Angel wings this past May. He had a rare disease that ended up taking his life, so he required a great deal of care. I absolutely loved getting to be his therapist, teacher, nurse, cheerleader, and above else mom. I don’t regret one minute because we lived life to the fullest and was present in each moment. With him I knew who I was, but I lost sight of that after he went to Heaven. I wanted to fall in love with myself again and be proud of the person staring back in the mirror.
Were you nervous about the shoot beforehand? If so, what were you most nervous about? I really wasn’t that nervous other than not doing a great job “modeling”. I was more excited than anything!!!
Did you become more comfortable after the session started? If so, what helped to relax your nerves? As soon as I walked into Holly’s studio the little bit of nerves that I did have melted away. The environment is so relaxing that your mind and body feel at ease. Holly was a fantastic host and immediately offered refreshments and snacks. I had the pleasure of getting glammed up by her and enjoying easy conversations.
What was your favorite part of the experience and why? Ahhh! It is very difficult to pick a favorite part of the experience because every second was amazing. A few of my absolute favorite parts included the actual photo shoot and going through the pictures at the very end with Holly. I enjoyed getting to view the pictures through her eyes and watching her describe pictures she liked best.
How did you feel during your session? I felt extremely comfortable during the entire session. Holly and I had a vibe that just worked!!! I was able to take cues very easily and I felt more comfortable in front of a camera than I ever have in my life!
Describe how you felt when you saw your images for the first time. I felt proud of myself. I am trying to get more and more out of my comfort zone lately and Holly even helped me take another step by ordering pictures for my walls! I couldn’t be more excited!
How has your relationship with your body changed since your session? I have not necessarily had any changes with my relationship with body has I have had of my self-image. I am proud of stepping outside the box because had I not have done that I wouldn’t have met Holly or had the experience that I did. Meeting people and truly living in the moment is what it is all about!
What would you say to people who say they can’t do a boudoir session because they are too shy, nervous, etc? You absolutely can do anything that you set your mind to. Fear is a liar. Let Holly guide you though an experience that could change your life. Why not try it?!
