D came in for her bridal boudoir photoshoot recently, she wanted to surprise her hubby to be on their wedding day. She has never done anything like this before and said her fiance would never expect her to be brave enough to do something like this… well he is going to be blown away as her shoot is INCREDIBLE!!!!
“It has always been a rollercoaster for me, I have always suffered with low self-esteem and had a hang up with being curvier than the friends I grew up with. Even before kids, my relationship with my body was never a positive one. After having two kids I have spent a lot of time trying to ‘lose the baby weight’ and exercising to try and gain some confidence back. Another big issue for me was to find myself sexy again and not just see myself a mum!”
None of us see ourselves how we really are. Throughout the shoot, I show you how you look on the back of the camera and every time I get asked ‘Wow, is that me?’ “HELL YES!!”
What were you nervous about before the boudoir photoshoot?
“Being in underwear in front of another person and baring parts of my body I often feel quite negative about. For me, I’ve always had issues with my legs and worried I was going to be flashing cellulite and wobbly bits on camera”.
It’s completely normal to be nervous before a boudoir photoshoot – many of us find it difficult to pose in front of the camera even when we’re fully dressed so a boudoir photoshoot can feel a little out of our comfort zone. My job is to make you as relaxed as possible and guide you through your boudoir photoshoot to create an amazing, confidence-boosting experience for you and achieve fabulous photographs.
Once you arrive, you’ll be greeted by myself and one of our lovely MUA’s. We’ll have a relaxed chat about you, how you feel and your outfits. We’ll discuss your makeup, and plan your shoot to compliment your looks. I’ll never push you to do anything you’re not comfortable with, and I’ll talk you through everything as we do the shoot. I do all the poses first and make fun of myself so you feel completely at ease. Once you’ve been in hair and makeup and had some pamper time, you’ll feel gorgeous and like yourself again. By the end of your boudior photoshoot you’ll feel so confident and natural in front of the camera, you’ll want to do it all over again!
“Strong, stubborn, optimistic”
“I would say having my two kids is my biggest achievement. It amazes me what my body has done and how wonderful and beautiful my little boy and girl are”.
“It was a lot less nerve wracking and it was surprising how quickly Amalia made me feel at ease. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect but I could tell I had made the right choice to have my boudoir shoot with her. Nothing felt sordid and it felt like everything was sexy but tastefully done”.
“During the boudoir photoshoot and afterwards I still felt quite unconfident about my body. However, once I saw the photos it certainly gave me more confidence and helped me see myself possibly more how my fiancé sees me and I felt very sexy. I also felt confident enough to share my photos with some friends and my sister as I couldn’t believe the pictures were me! I have recommended it to all my friends as Great confidence booster!”
“I think I would stop worrying so much about whether there was a roll of fat here or cellulite showing and be a bit more experimental. I think it would be much more relaxed to do it again and I would possibly be brave enough to do some more shots like the Art Nude shots”.
D’s shoot was AMAZING! I am so honoured that she chose to book her bridal boudoir photoshoot experience with me and let me share some of her stunning photographs and story with you all. I wish her every success with her family and the wedding and hope to see her again in the future!
