Should I do a boudoir shoot if I am actually insecure? Miss K shares her experience. Wilmington Boudoir Photographer

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering, should I do a boudoir shoot? You’re not alone. In fact, most of our clients have concerns that they are somehow not “enough” — not pretty enough, not thin enough, not young enough, or not curvy enough. We’re here to tell you: YOU ARE ENOUGH. And, YES, you should do the shoot! The thing is, self-confidence isn’t the prerequisite for boudoir; it’s the result. Miss K shares her exact thoughts on the matter in her own words, below. Then scroll down further to see our favorite images from her session!

boudoir before and after

1. What made you choose Boudoir by indigosilver studio?
I was searching for a boudoir photographer in my area, and when I came across photos from indigosilver, I knew my search had ended! The moodiness, lighting, posing, hair and makeup, were exactly what I was looking for.

2. What were you nervous about going into your session?
I have always struggled with getting my picture taken, and I was so worried that I would see my pictures and not like any of them and that it would just lead me to pick myself apart and notice my insecurities even more. I was nervous about how all of my biggest insecurities would be on full display in a session like this.

3. How do you feel now that you’ve completed the session?
I was so nervous that having photos like this would lead me to focus on my insecurities even more, but what happened was the exact opposite of that. I saw the pictures Lori took, and it brought me to tears. I didn’t even know I could look like that, but those images were 100% me! There will always be things I will be insecure about, but these photos helped me notice things that I love about myself. Before the shoot, when I was asked about my favorite features, I really had to think about it. Now, I have a whole list of things I love about myself. I have truly never felt more confident.

4. What was your favorite part of this experience?
I felt so taken care of and understood throughout my whole session. From getting my hair and makeup done to having the photos taken to looking through them all together, I felt 100% supported, understood, and celebrated.

5. If you were to recommend us to your best friend, what would you say?
Every single part of the entire session day is done so intentionally and with great care. It was truly a customized experience. Lori took the time to listen to what I wanted and my experience and put so much thought and care into every single step of the process. So much time and effort went into highlighting my favorite features and making me feel beautiful. I am just amazed at Lori’s talent and compassion! Being in such a vulnerable position can be very intimidating, but it was such a fun day and I felt so cared for!

6. Anything we could have done to make your experience better?
I truly could not have asked for a better experience.
