I love my 40+ clients. . . I recently had one that cried tears of joy when I showed her one of her first images. . . and that’s why I love being a boudoir photographer, because my heart is fulfilled by my clients overwhelming happiness after their sessions are finished. We are getting older, we are more tired, there’s more wrinkles, more dimples, more gray, more curves. . . and it’s hard to imagine that we can be beautiful, sexy and bold. Allow yourself the opportunity to rediscover that you ARE perfect! So many ladies tell me “I just need to lose 10 more pounds,” or express how they are worried about their stretch marks, or “I’ve had 4 kids, and I won’t look good in pictures”. . . trust me, you will look amazing, and you will be so over the moon and so in love with your pictures!
Mrs. E is such a wonderful example of a real mom and real wife, who was truly absolutely so nervous about her photo shoot. The end result was amazing, and she loved her entire experience. Here’s what she said:
“So, what do you get for your husband after 15 years of marriage, 2 houses, 2 kids and 4 dogs later? I decided to step out of my total comfort zone and do boudoir pictures. I still to this day can’t believe I went through with it – but so glad I did. I was lucky enough to find Pink Door Boudoir online as I was researching all this. I loved what I saw online but was really nervous, etc about doing it. I still had my doubts up until the day of my photoshoot. My best advice: grab 2 or 3 of your bestest friends and have them come along for support and comic relief! Wow – what a day it was! Starting off with make up and hair in the morning was so fabulous. When we got to the studio and I changed I was still unsure – I think I laughed and joked my way through the entire photo shoot and Marie was still able to get some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen. My husband was totally surprised and was really impressed and amazed with the whole thing. I am not a supermodel, I am no longer 21 and stick skinny. I am a 41 year old mom with 2 kids and I do have some squishy places here and there and some imperfections – it took these pictures and this experience to remind myself that I have aged pretty darn good and should be proud!”
