What made you want to book a boudoir session?
Wanted to do something special for my partner, who is ALWAYS asking for pictures of me and had heard how amazing women felt after doing the sessions. I needed a bit of a confidence boost as my body had changed over the last few years and I was not feeling 100% confident in myself.
Was there anything holding you back from booking your session?
Definitely, I didn’t feel like my body was ‘right’ to do something like this, and then realized I needed to embrace where I was at. Originally I wanted to do it as my husband’s wedding present, but just did not feel confident enough. Ending up booking to do as a first anniversary gift and it was perfect! I didn’t have all the wedding stress hanging over me, and really just got to enjoy this.
What was your favorite part of the boudoir experience?
My favorite part was the photo reveal, it was honestly so emotional for me because I have never seen myself in the way Katie was able to capture me. It was such an eye-opening experience in how I have seen myself versus what others see.
What would you tell to someone else who is thinking about this experience but is feeling hesitant?
DO IT!! You will absolutely not regret it. It is a day of pampering (hair and makeup) and hyping you up to be the goddess you are!
When you look at your photos, how would you describe the woman you see?
Looking at the photos I see a woman who owns her body and is full of confidence – which is honestly not how I would describe myself generally. That being said, every time I flip the photos in the album or electronically – the confidence Katie instilled in me during the shoot immediately carries into my current perceptions of myself. It truly is like having a reminder of who I am and the best version of myself!
Why KB Boudoir?
Heard about Katie/KB Boudoir through a bridal facebook page initially and starting following her. Over a year of her posts and seeing her style and hearing her just speak about her past experiences as a counselor and about different sessions, I knew it would be a great fit for this. After the initial consultation I really felt like Katie and I were on the same page, and knew that she would be able to guide me through this in a way that I felt empowered and comfortable. Cannot thank Katie enough for this experience!
