Miss A.’s Boudoir Testimonial | More Confident and Positive

We at Holly Douglas & Co. believe that EVERY woman should experience a boudoir photoshoot at least once in her lifetime. We love empowering women and boosting their self-confidence through the art of boudoir photography! Of course, people expect to hear that from us, the boudoir photographers, because we do this for a living. A boudoir experience testimonial written by a past client who has actually had a boudoir session, on the other hand, is much more convincing! For this reason, Holly Douglas & Co. proudly features a new Boudoir Testimonial each week on our blog. 🙂

This week’s boudoir experience testimonial comes from the gorgeous Miss A., who was photographed at our luxury boudoir studio in downtown Nashville, Tennessee!

Please Note: Miss A. asked that we do not share any of her boudoir photos publicly. Because our clients’ comfort and privacy is top priority, we are honoring her request by posting some behind-the-scenes photos of Holly Douglas doing what she does best. (These photos were not taken during Miss A.’s boudoir session.)

How did you hear about Holly Douglas Boudoir? 


Why did you choose Holly Douglas Boudoir for your session? 

I checked out a few different boudoir photographers in the middle TN area and I liked Holly’s reviews and images the best.

What made you decide to take the leap of faith and do a boudoir session? 

I had been thinking about it for a couple of years, first for a milestone birthday gift for my husband, and then for a milestone anniversary gift for him. I booked a session with another photographer a couple of years ago, but ended up canceling it for a lot of different reasons, mostly my social anxiety and embarrassment of my weight and body. Then I had a couple of life events this year that opened my eyes and made me realize that if there are things you want to do, you shouldn’t put them off because you never know when you won’t have another opportunity.

Were you nervous about the shoot beforehand? If so, what were you most nervous about? 

I was most nervous about the intimacy of the situation – wearing lingerie (or nothing at all) in front of a stranger with a camera.

Did you become more comfortable after the session started? If so, what helped to relax your nerves? 

Holly’s positive energy and constant hype really helped me relax. And the shoot goes so fast that you don’t really have time to be nervous!

What was your favorite part of the experience and why? 

It’s hard to pinpoint my “favorite” part because the whole experience was so amazing!

How did you feel during your session? 

Honestly, I felt almost like I was outside of myself. It was hard to believe what I was doing and that I was having so much fun doing it.

Describe how you felt when you saw your images for the first time. 

I was amazed that I could actually see myself as beautiful.

How has your relationship with your body changed since your session? 

I’m much more positive and confident about my body now. I still see flaws, but flaws aren’t the ONLY thing I see anymore. For the first time in more than 20 years, when my husband says I’m beautiful, I believe him because I can see it for myself now.

What would you say to people who say they can’t do a boudoir session because they are too shy, nervous, etc? 

If I can do it, you can do it! You will be amazed at the confidence you have inside yourself.

Anything else you’d like to add? 

When I scheduled my boudoir session, the intention was that it was going to be a gift for my husband. It turned out that it was actually a gift to myself. My body image is so much more positive now. I’ve realized that my body image has had a huge – mostly negative – impact on my life. Since my session, I’ve been more confident and positive, I’ve smiled and laughed more, and people in my life have noticed. It has all been an amazing experience!

Thank you for sharing this boudoir experience testimonial, Miss A.!

Are YOU ready to have a more confidence and a more positive body image?
