I have always wanted to do boudoir session but I always gave myself an excuse. “I don’t have time,” “it’s too expensive,” “I need to lose weight first,” etc. In February of this year my husband and I decided to lose the rest of the “baby weight” (our son is 3 :) ). We went on a pretty strict diet and exercise regimen and we both did fantastic. As soon as I started losing the weight, I knew my reward (and my husbands) was going to be some boudoir photos. I wanted to feel sexy and feminine and while I love the titles “wife” and “mommy”, I wanted something that was just for me: A way to reclaim myself!
I had a friend add me to the facebook group and I loved all of the images I saw as well as all of the body positivity! In all honesty Melissa looked like my type of gal! She was totally real about her body and so open and positive about everyone else’s as well!
I am always a bit nervous taking my clothes off in front of other people. LOL! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect and I was nervous but it was a lot of nervous excitement. But she made me feel at ease and comfortable really quickly.
My favorite part of this experience was having someone hype you up and make you feel beautiful. I consider myself a fairly confident person, but getting your hair and makeup done and listening to someone tell you how hot and amazing you look is good for everyone’s soul!
Now that I've completed this self love experience, I feel beautiful and empowered. Seeing the finished product in my book is so awesome! I am really proud that I did this and quite frankly I am proud of how good I look without my clothes on.
I have already recommended Melissa to several of my friends. I really believe that all women should experience this at least once in their lives. Every woman should feel sexy, beautiful, empowered, strong, and confident. We don’t. We doubt ourselves; our beauty, our strength and we see women on TV and social media and we compare ourselves. After my session with Melissa, I’m not doubting me anymore. I know my worth and Melissa is a large part in me realizing that I had been selling myself short.
