Miss A took the scary plunge, and decided to come in for a boudoir session because she felt that It would be a good way to help her feel good about herself, and who doesn't want that feeling?
She told me that she was pretty anxious but excited too,
SO I feel like we all feel like this. None of us do this regularly (except if your a model... and That's awesome!) So no matter what, we are going to feel anxious and excited all at once, maybe it just starts with a voice in your head saying, that would be fun!
But then come those little negative thoughts... Like,
Oh who would want to see me like that!
I'm too old..
I need to lose (insert some crazy number here) pounds...
I'll never look that good!
I'm not photogenic!
I don't have anyone to give them too..
And the list goes on and on until we've talked ourselves out of doing something fun, exciting and a little out of the box.
But he feeling you get when you listen to the little voice that said, oooh that looks like fun!
or the voice that whispers, I'd love to feel feminine and sexy again, I just don't get to feel that way since I've had kids.
How that feeling last for weeks
How for weeks your lighter on your feet, confident, you walk taller, laugh more, because you did the scary thing and you feel more alive. And proud. And empowered.
That's where the beauty lies, in the fact that your lit up, Your one of a kind beauty and soul and everything that is you shine so bright it's a gift to this world. Because Girl, You are a gift to this world, exactly as you are. Imperfectly perfect. No one can do you as wonderfully as you. And you should love that. Embrace your uniqueness. Too often we've been told to dim down, play small ect.
That my friend does not make the world go round.
Here is a woman who did just that. She's an amazing mom, and if you can believe it a grandma. She works out and loves life. And she rocked her session, even while terrified!
When Iasked here what her definition of sexy was this is what she said,
What part of the session did you like best?
"I loved it all, but posing and getting to see how great the pics turned out made me feel young and sexy again!:) Right from the minute I walked in the door Wendy made me feel like a Goddess!:) "
What would you tell a friend who is thinking of having a boudoir session done?
"I felt very comfortable and relaxed once when the session started. Wendy made me feel like a million bucks!:)"
What are you waiting for? It's time for you!
Lots of love

Meet Miss A
Miss A came in early February for her 2nd Boudoir Session with me. When I asked what made her want to come in and have them done again, I was excited about her answer.
She replied " I have been working out and putting myself 1st. I really wanted to feel good about me and my body. Before coming in I had many days where I just felt yucky and like I couldn't see the results that I had hoped I would have been getting."
She is the busy mom of three and owns her own business. She just moved this year and has all kinds of the usual craziness that happens to us Moms.
When I asked her at her viewing session how she felt after looking at her images this is what she had to say.
It was breathtaking and motivating to see that all of my hard work is paying off. I felt hot! It was awesome to see myself through a different set of eyes. I felt like a princess. I would consider myself as a modest person. This definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone, It was totally worth it! The whole process put me at ease. It starts with the first conversations about what I want my session to look and be like. Then when I arrived and you did the hair and makeup, it really worked to relax and excite me. It certainly starts the process of feeling awesome! I had so much fun, and felt great and empowered for weeks after, Then even more so after seeing the images!
I highly recommended having this done! you will not regret it!
