Miss S.’ Boudoir Testimonial | One More Hard, Scary Thing

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 S., who was photographed at our luxury boudoir studio in downtown Nashville, Tennessee!

How did you hear about Holly Douglas Boudoir? 

I saw an advertisement for Holly Douglas Boudoir on Facebook.

Why did you choose Holly Douglas Boudoir for your session? 

I chose Holly Douglas because she featured beautiful women of all sizes.

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

I’ve always secretly wanted to do a boudoir shoot. I’ve had some big life changes recently, and I turned 50. Part of those life changes have meant doing hard and scary things and I wanted to see myself differently. I wanted to feel beautiful, sexy and alive, so I decided to do one more hard and scary thing and booked a session.

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

I was terrified beforehand – literally broke out in hives, I was so nervous. In school, I was one of those girls that changed for gym class in the bathroom stall. I don’t even go around my house without a bra if there is someone else home. I was worried about being so exposed in front of other people and I was afraid I wouldn’t like my photos.

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

When I walked in, I was greeted like an old friend. I was told not to worry about my wardrobe and given the coziest robe to put on. We started with hair and makeup where I was liberally peppered with sincere compliments. We chatted and laughed and I began to relax as Holly worked her magic. Finally it came time to model some outfits and I took a deep breath and stepped out in front of Holly and Leslie where I was greeted with YES, Girl!! That is Hot! So much hype. From there it became easier and I stopped worrying about how my body looked.

What was your favorite part of the experience and why? 

My favorite part of the experience was hanging with Holly and Leslie. It reminded me of teen sleepovers with all the gossip, laughter and playing dress up. Thankfully no one froze my bra, but some of my assets did get hosed down with water.

How did you feel during your session? 

The session moved quickly. There wasn’t time to obsess or worry, just lots of “yes girl” and enjoying being the center of attention.

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

I was surprised and shocked when I saw my pictures. I truly didn’t expect to like them and there were so many I actually loved.

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

I’ll be honest, I’m still not in love with my body, but I’m more accepting of it. What absolutely floored me was my face. I haven’t felt pretty in so long and to see my face as beautiful is a total confidence boost. I don’t feel invisible any more.

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

Do it. Do the shoot. Holly will work within your comfort zone and still bring out the sexy. You will surprise yourself! I started in a long sleeved PJ top and shorts and ended in a red lace teddy.

Anything else you’d like to add? 

Don’t let wrinkles, bad skin, your size (big or small) stand in your way. If you want to do it, do it, and do it for yourself!

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