So, I spent the week leading up to my boudoir session writing about different tips for getting ready for a boudoir session. So, here I am. I’ve gotten all of my photos back and I wanted to do a bit of a write up and share some of the photos.
Images are by Kent and Stephanie Photography.
The experience itself: So, it was fun and interesting. As a plus size woman, I’ve always struggled with my own body image, so it was very very much out of my comfort zone to have a photo shoot like this. Typically, only the men I have been with have seen me in such a state of undress (and only my husband, now). I am a fairly private person – believe it or not – so it was very new for me. Thankfully, my photographer – Stephanie – is someone that I went to high school with. We did musicals together, were in marching band, etc, etc…So I was familiar with her. It was sweet because she is due this month, so it was kinda comical to watch her get into positions to take photos with a very pregnant belly. She was professional, complimentary ( “you’re sooo beautiful!!!” ) and did her best to make sure that I was at ease and comfortable. All in all, I would definitely recommend Stephanie and her husband as photographers (check out their site….lots of great work), and Stephanie in general.
Would I ever do it again? No. But that’s not because I had a bad experience. Just too far out of my comfort zone!
Anyways, without further ado, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from the session! Be kind! I’ll refrain from body snark about my *own* body, but I have to say, in the fourth photo, you can really see how much migrated tissue I have on the sides from wearing the wrong size bra for sooo long. Just remember, this is why scooping and swooping is SO important.
Well, lingerie knows no size.
