Mrs. W – I Felt Like a Star | North Carolina Boudoir Photographers

mature boudoir before and after

Mrs. W. found us earlier this year when we were running a special for my birthday. Like many of our clients, Mrs. W was concerned about how she’d look on camera. I noticed the morning of her session that the first few outfits she showed me were “safe” options with lots of coverage. I challenged her to step outside her comfort zone (because boudoir is for doing just that). Suddenly she started digging to the bottom of her duffel bag to pull out items that were a little more edgy and adventurous. These outfits were actually more flattering — a lot of “safe” outfits can be frumpy or bulky — and they better represented who Mrs. W truly is.

Note: every boudoir session includes a wardrobe planning guide and links on where to shop, and every client can also reach out to me personally for wardrobe advice! I’m so glad that Mrs. W opted for these gorgeous outfit options in addition to the ones the voice in her head was telling her were “appropriate” and “safe”. My goal with boudoir is to help women reprogram that voice in their heads, so they can step into the light and see how beautiful they are when they stop holding back!

Here are Mrs. W’s thoughts on her session:

1. What made you choose Boudoir by indigosilver studio?
The [promotion] was what got my attention. Your photos online [are] what sold me!

2. What were you nervous about going into your session?
Looking fat and unattractive.

3. How do you feel now that you’ve completed the session?
Amazing. Sore because of the yoga and Pilates class involved during the session. But amazing.
[Editor’s note: boudoir posing can be very strenuous! We joke that our clients get a workout during their session — and many are sore the next day from the back arching and holding a pose. But we promise it’s all worth it!]

4. What was your favorite part of this experience?
The all day attention. I felt like a star getting hair and make up and going thru wardrobe. I really felt very special.

5. If you were to recommend us to your best friend, what would you say?
It was lots of fun. Totally relaxing and no body shaming.

6. Anything we could have done to make your experience better?
The entire experience was wonderful. Not sure what I’d change. Everything ran smoothly and was lots of fun!
