My Own Personal Boudoir

Well, I finally did it.  I took the leap and had my own boudoir photo session done.  I was nervous, because I am at the biggest weight I have ever been.  I have a ‘I’ve had 2 babies’ body and I’m a size 14-16.  I’m by no means thin.  But I’m real.  I get countless email from women saying ‘I will do it once I drop 15-20lbs’ or ‘I couldn’t do it, I’m not thin enough’.  This is to show you that you do not have to be thin to be beautiful.

I originally did this session for my husband as a Valentine’s Day gift.  But… during the session, I realized that I was doing this for me.  I now know how all of my clients feel.  I was so nervous during the planning of the session.  Picking out what I was going to wear, making sure my hair and makeup were perfect.  But, in the end the results came out better than I’d imagined.  I’d never thought of myself as ‘sexy’ before.  I didn’t think I could be.  But, when I look at these photos I do see sexy!  I see pretty even!!!  Every woman deserves to feel this way!

Thank you so much to my sister for helping me take these photographs.  ❤
