A Bridal Groom’s Gift
“She really wanted an implied nude artsy look…“
Q: What brought you to book a boudoir experience?
A: I was always intrigued with the idea to do a boudoir shoot but was never confident in myself or my body. I would always say “I’ll do it after I lose X amount of weight, tone my stomach more, or as a wedding gift to my husband. I will for sure be skinnier by then.” Well then I had a baby and got engaged. So that loosing of the weight didn’t happen, if anything I got further from my goal, but with a wedding only 7 months after I had our daughter I knew I wanted to do it now. I knew the time was to decide was fast approaching and I went for it!
A: I was pretty nervous. I actually had to drive 3 hours to get to Amanda since I live in southwest Wisconsin. So the nerves were building the whole drive. That morning I literally brought a bottle of wine and as soon as my makeup as done and I was one step closer to the actual shoot my stomach was in knots! Needless to say I opened up that bottle of wine and had a glass or two while getting my hair done. Then Amanda and I went over outfit choices, from what I brought and what she had that would fit my vibe! As soon as the shoot started Amanda did amazing at hyping me up and even showed me a few pictures she already took on her camera unedited! That was all I needed for that boost of confidence to rock the shoot!
A: Literally as soon as I got the sneak peak I sent it to everyone! I told all my friends, my aunts, my mom, everyone! I told everyone that it was 100% worth the drive and that Amanda is amazing. Most the responses I got were a lot like my thought process before my shoot. “I have to lose weight etc…” But girls if there is one thing I can tell you is that you DONT need to lose the extra pound or two to do this. Amanda captures your best feature and ones that you may not of known you had! Just go for it! Its well worth it, not only for your pictures but also your confidence in yourself!
A: LOVE LOVE LOVE Felt like a total badass and its been really hard to keep them from my fiancé since I love them and just want to show him like NOW!
A: It has helped me love my post baby body like I never thought possible! Confidence and self esteem are no long a problem!
A: If you are thinking about doing it…well… What is that saying from NIKE… oh yeah JUST DO IT!! You wont regret it
