What made you want to book a boudoir session? Was there anything holding you back from booking your session?
Originally, I impulsively booked my shoot as a wedding gift to my now husband. I was so nervous after booking and almost cancelled at least 5 times! I’ve struggled with body acceptance and self esteem, which played a role in the development of an eating disorder throughout my adult life. By the time my shoot came I had finished intensive treatment and was learning to accept my body. My experience with Katie taught me to not just accept it, but to love and respect it.
What started as a gift to my husband (which he absolutely loved btw!) really ended up being more of a gift to myself. The experience was healing in ways I could never describe and a beautiful part of my recovery journey that I’ll be forever grateful for.
What was your favorite part of the boudoir experience?
My absolute favorite part was Katie herself, and how she makes you feel so comfortable and beautiful. She’s the ultimate hype women! She was so supportive and encouraging given my ongoing eating disorder recovery, and all the emotions that come along with that. She checked in with me throughout the shoot, made sure I was feeling comfortable and offered as many breaks as I needed. I felt myself turning into a person I didn’t know I was capable of being by the end of the shoot. I felt confident and stunning just as I was, which is something I don’t think I’ve EVER felt before. I didn’t want the shoot to end! Whenever I have moments of insecurity I think back to my experience at KB Boudoir, and look back on the unbelievable works of art Katie produced, and am reminded of the beauty in every person, including myself.
What would you tell to someone else who is thinking about this experience but is feeling hesitant?
Absolutely 1000% do it! And do it for yourself! As someone who’s struggled with a lifetime of body insecurity I can promise you’re in amazing hands and will walk out of your shoot feeling like a whole new person. The confidence I gained still stays with me now.
Why KB Boudoir?
I knew Katie had experience in the mental health field and read about her body positive views and knew she’d be the perfect fit for me! She lived up to every expectation I had and even more. I cant imagine doing this with anyone else.
