Why did you choose Holly Douglas Boudoir for your session? I love the care she puts in to working with her models. Every detail is artfully planned and executed.
What made you decided to take the leap of faith and do a boudoir session? I have a wonderful man in my life and I wanted to see myself the way he sees me. I wanted to find the goddess inside to understand our relationship more.
Were you nervous about the shoot beforehand? If so, what were you most nervous about? I was insanely nervous about the shoot for weeks leading up. Surprisingly, I woke up the morning of the shoot calm and carefree. I knew there was nothing further I could do to “prepare’ and understood it was Holly’s expertise that would do the rest.
Did you become more comfortable after the session started? If so, what helped to relax your nerves? Holly and her team are amazing. You walk into the studio a total stranger, but an instant friend. The energy in the space is so positive and warm.
What was your favorite part of the experience and why? My favorite part of the day was the reveal. Being able to see myself as sexy, beautiful, stunning…wow, it was a powerful moment.
How did you feel during your session? During my session I felt llike I may need a chiropractor! Holly knows how to bend your body to create the perfect softness.
Describe how you felt when you saw your images for the first time. That reveal moment was incredibly powerful. Holly’s skill with light and her camera lens create magic.
How has your relationship with your body changed since your session? Since my session, I am trying to love the skin I am in better. I try not to shudder when I see myself in the mirror. Everytime I see my reflection I try to focus on something positive.
What would you say to people who say they can’t do a boudoir session because they are too shy, nervous, etc? I would say you can’t truly know what you will feel until you are in the moment. Just go for it!
