Way to "rock" your body | Client interview | Atlanta boudoir photographer
This client interview invites you into the idea that your 'excuse' for having a boudoir session can lie within a few different reasons. You can do this for someone else, and you can also do this for YOU (and let someone else reap the benefits, or not, who cares). I love it when clients come in and are mutually excited about having a session done for themselves AND their significant other. I also get incredibly inspired when a client brings in a personal prop to use during the session.
Here you hear (don't you just love the english language?) this lovely lady talk about her reasons and joy over having her session as well as a few of the personal touches she put into it for her husband. That is one thing that I love the most about this boudoir session; the special treatment that she gave her husband's passion! You'll soon understand (by looking at the images) that I'm talking about his passion for Metallica. When we were talking through her props she got excited about bringing in his VERY first guitar and posing in a shirt from his all-time favorite band. Being in a new relationship myself, I have a similar excitement at the idea of throwing in some tie-dye shirts and PJ pants in order to incorporate Phish into my next boudoir session. **Side note, I'm headed to my first Phish concert this weekend!!! Wish me luck
Her excitement over HER reasons for the session meshed almost perfectly with her desire to really surprise him, and I love that! It made the boudoir session such a mutual experience for both of them... even though he didn't know it was happening until after!
Read on and view on to hear about her experience!
Rock on, babes,
1) How old are you... or if you prefer, who were you listening to at age 14 :)?
2) What do you do for a living?
3) What/who made you decide to book a boudoir session?
I just lost 30 lbs. and wanted to do something special to show off my new body BEFORE kids enter the picture, plus give my husband an amazing anniversary gift. But, it ended up being just as much a gift to myself.
4) Did you have any obstacles or fears about boudoir?
I hesitated at first because it's obviously a little nerve-racking dancing around in your underwear with a photographer, but Sarah put me at ease from the get-go. And the champagne didn't hurt either. haha I'm so glad I have this snapshot in time of my life: my young, sexy, pre-maternity self. It wasn't just worth it, it was priceless.
5) Why did you choose OWN?
Sarah's online portfolio drew me in. Her light and dark styling. Simple, yet stunning. Plus, her personality was a great fit for mine.
6) How was the actual session different from what you expected (if at all)?
Sarah and the rest of her staff prepped me very well for the shoot, so I knew exactly what to expect the day of.
7) What was your favorite part of the entire experience? (priming, the shoot, seeing images, giving the images..etc)
All of it. The wardrobe consultant helping me pick out outfits beforehand, the hair and makeup artist making me look and feel incredible, and Sarah being the wizard behind the lens. Fantastic experience hands-down.
8) How has the response been to your images?
Everyone LOVES the images. Each person I showed them to can't stop raving about them.
9) What is your advice for women interested in such a session?
Do it! Book immediately! It was one of the best experiences. You'll thank yourself later.
10) Did anything change about the way you see your own beauty as a result of this session?
I saw my inner beauty shine through. Sarah captured me perfectly. I didn't know I could look and feel like this. It was a huge confidence boost!
