I wanted to see myself how my husband says he sees me. It’s easy to forget that when you live day to day in sweat pants, and driving the kids around for all of THEIR needs. Being a mom of 2 boys, I forget that I am 29 and can have fun for myself, too!
And that’s just what I did, I had a lot of fun. I felt SO pretty and I got to have an adult afternoon with adult conversation. I loved the fact that from my face to my toes was posed for me. I never once was told “Look sexy, give me pouty eyes…” I would have looked like a deer in headlights! Kristen just told me where to look and she did the rest. I never once felt uncomfortable.
Doing a session forced me to buy some gorgeous lingerie, I saw myself as more than just a stay at home mom, for the first time in awhile and had a great time doing something just for ME… And maybe my husband a little bit too 😉 The look on his face was priceless when he got his album. I felt like a million bucks and still do looking back on these pictures!
Doing a boudoir shoot is something that I would absolutely recommend. Our bodies are always changing, as are our mindsets. So why not document that, in an empowering way, during different times in your life?! I got to look and feel great with exactly who I am, at this point in time. How awesome is that?
