Miss C.’s Boudoir Testimonial | Creating a Core Memory

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. Boudoir testimonials written by our past clients who have actually experienced a boudoir session, on the other hand, are the most convincing! For this reason, Holly Douglas & Co. proudly features a new boudoir experience testimonial blog each week.

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

Miss C.'s boudoir experience testimonial about her boudoir session with Holly Douglas & Co. in Nashville, TN.

How did you hear about Holly Douglas Boudoir?

I was researching boudoir photographers in Nashville and Holly Douglas Boudoir was on a top 10 list on a blog I stumbled upon.

Why did you choose Holly Douglas Boudoir for your session? 

I immediately fell in love with her aesthetic. The moody, shadowy vibe was exactly what I was looking for. There wasn’t a photo of hers I didn’t like.

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

It’s been on my bucket list for a hot minute and I came to the realization I’m not getting any younger or any hotter so now is the time, why keep waiting?

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

Of course! I think most people are nervous to do something new for the first time, especially when it’s something so bold. I was nervous I wouldn’t know what I was doing and be the first client who she couldn’t pull a sexy facial expression from. (spoiler, that did not happen!)

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

Yes! I think sitting in the glam chair getting all dolled up, listening to music, drinking some bourbon, and laughing with the team was what put me at ease immediately.

What was your favorite part of the experience and why? 

Oh heck, that’s a hard one! I have never had professional photographs taken so it was a ton of fun for me to be glammed up and posing; not to mention Holly is the BEST hype girl in town. I felt so sexy and empowered during the shoot. But also, the reveal. Seriously the whole thing was my favorite part!

How did you feel during your session? 

I felt sexy, empowered, beautiful…. I felt like I was creating a core memory of doing something bold in life & it was just for me and nobody else.

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

Literal gasps when I saw the photos. I couldn’t believe it was me. I felt so beautiful, confident, sexy, just wow!

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

This was a huge step in my journey to seeing myself as the main character of my story. I’ve had a bad habit of seeing myself as the cute & funny sidekick who was always a little too chubby and didn’t get the boys’ attention. I assumed sexy wasn’t on my list of adjectives. But now, when I look at myself I can see all the facets – the sexy, bold, beautiful, sassy, bad ass boss babe that I am. Now, when I start down that path of negative self-talk, letting society tell me I don’t fit their beauty standards, or picking to pieces my body I can pull out my boudoir photos and be reminded of the TRUTH. Healing negative body self image is a slow and continuous journey, but I’m so glad I took this fun leap in the right direction.

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

You can be shy and nervous and still do bold things! If this is truly something you want to do for yourself then don’t let self-doubt, nerves or being shy hold you back. Holly will make you feel so comfortable and never push you past your boundaries of comfort. I promise you the experience and the results will be so worth those butterflies. Just do it, babes!

Thank you so much for this boudoir experience testimonial, Miss C.!
