What made you book in for a session? What were you hoping to get out of it?
Initially, I was just hoping to do something fun and sexy for my husband’s birthday. I thought I might get some good pictures to help with my self-esteem, self-image, and confidence, too. But what I got was so much more!
Describe how you felt before coming in for your session?
NERVOUS AS HELL! I totally wondered why the heck I thought I could do this! “What was I THINKING?! I’m not sexy. I don’t even like showing my midriff, how did I EVER think I was going to wear sexy lingerie in sexy poses IN FRONT OF A CAMERA?! WTAF, Nicole?” I was really (REALLY) surprised how quickly those feelings and thoughts were changed once I met Jen and Finn. They are so welcoming, comforting, and down to earth. And the vibe in the studio is super relaxing and enjoyable!
What made you choose Supernova Boudoir and Jennifer James?
A FB friend posted the photos from her shoot on FB and I was very impressed. I had thought (for, like, a millisecond) about doing a boudoir shoot before, but had zero clue how the sessions went or how to go about finding the right photographer. I knew I needed to talk to someone about it (extensively!) first. So I did. The timing was right, with my husband’s birthday coming up in a few months, so I took A HUGE leap of faith and booked. I was immediately impressed with Jen’s organization and attention to details, and I hadn’t even spoken to her yet!
What was your favorite part of your boudoir experience?
Everything! I know that’s cliche to say, but it’s true! There was nothing not enjoyable! The whole experience was fun, invigorating, sexy, exciting.
What is your favorite photo from your boudoir session?
Please tell me I don’t have to choose only one! It’s funny, bc I like all the b/w photos, and my husband likes all the color. He likes the shots with my face, but I like the ones without. We both love the booty shots and the back arch on the floor though!
How has your boudoir session changed your perspective about yourself and your body?
My body has changed recently. I’ve never had a weight problem. I’ve always had a thin build that was easy to maintain. I don’t know if it’s my age or stress or what, but recently I’ve put on some weight and maintaining is a struggle, much less losing. My clothes fit differently, and I FELT differently.. in an unsexy way. After the session, though, I physically saw that I was sexy in my skin. I felt it in my heart, too.
What would you tell someone who is on the fence or thinks she can’t do one?
Just do it! There’s never a perfect time to do it, and there will always be excuses. So, just do it!
You heard the woman! Just do it!
