I chose to have boudoir photos taken because I have struggled with self esteem and confidence issues for years. I had kids at a young age and I no longer recognized myself. I struggled through a divorce in my 20’s and truly felt like a guest in my own body. From years of knowing Missy and watching her grow her career, I knew that she would be able to make me feel like the only other person in the world. My first boudoir session with Missy was in 2014 and it was so laid back that I felt right at home. In 2014 I was still really struggling with my weight and Missy still made me feel like a model. My first shoot with her boosted my self esteem so much that I knew I eventually would need another shoot with her. Fast forward to 2017: My most recent shoot with Missy was absolutely incredible. I had just come to the end of a year long weight loss journey and she made sure to let me know how proud she was of me and she made me feel downright sexy.
I chose Missy because I've known her since we were kids and I truly know how passionate she is about her craft. She spends every waking moment that she isn't with her family trying to do whatever she can to excel her skill. She doesn't do that for her, she does it for her potential clients. Her main goal is to let every women she knows just how perfect, incredible, and beautiful they are and to capture those feelings for them to cherish forever. Going into my session I think I had all the normal anxieties. I had thought about the possibility of doing nude poses and shots and I still was not 100% comfortable with my body. Missy never pressured me into doing nude shots but as soon as the session started all of my fears and anxieties melted away and I asked Missy if we could do the nude shots!
My favorite part about the shoot was how fun it was. Missy has you choose your own music station and she will laugh and sing with you to make you feel comfortable. It's not just getting your pictures taken by someone behind a camera. It's hanging out with a friend who just so happens to be holding a camera. Now that I've completed the experience I feel as confident as ever. There was struggle in the beginning and before the session on whether or not as a mom of 3 kids that I should spend money like this on myself but in the end I did this for myself because I am a mom, because women work hard and change everything about themselves for the people they love sometimes or for the career they are striving for or for the friends they want to like them. Every woman in the world is beautiful and incredible and they all deserve to feel that way all the time. These photos will be a constant reminder of how perfect I am just the way I am and I would do it over again a million times if I had the chance.
I would recommend Missy to anyone for several reasons: I love the she is constantly bettering herself to be better for her clients. She attends classes regularly and is always trying new and inventive poses and ideas. I would also recommend her because every person in the world has some type of insecurity no matter who you are and she knows just the right way to figure out what you aren't in love with about yourself and make you fall in love with it. Every insecurity you have about yourself melts away at the door to her studio and it stays there. Do this for yourself because you deserve all the best things in the world.
