I chose to get my pictures taken because after having a baby, I have been so hard on myself with the way that I look. My husband tells me all the time to stop putting myself down because I am beautiful, but that just didn’t do it for me. I needed to feel beautiful, and not just be told that I was.
I had looked into Melissa Adams before, for newborn photography. She is an amazing artist. I decided against it at the time, which was a huge mistake. After researching her Boudoir sessions, I realized that this was something that I absolutely had to do. There are a few other photographers who I had known to do Boudoir, but none like Missy.
First of all, I was a complete nervous wreck after the initial conversation that I had with Missy, because I didn’t know how I could ever gain the courage to let a stranger photograph me in a boudoir setting. She helped me get through the initial anxiety of it all, and after getting to sit down and actually meet her, she is one of the most patient, kind, and observing people I have ever met. She actually cared about what I wanted and she wanted to know about ME.
My favorite part of this experience was realizing how other people see me, and that I really am a beautiful person inside and out. Also, gaining a lifelong friend who I know will always be there for me through her photography, and as a person.
This is one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. This project was initially for my husband, but it quickly turned into something that I just simply needed to do for myself. I feel amazing after having those pictures taken. I know that I can be sexy and stunning all at the same time.
Melissa is one of a kind. She is such a talented person, and puts everyone before herself. Its such a blessing to have someone like that in your life. She loves to help people and is really, really great at it. If you are thinking about getting pictures done, whether its for yourself, a significant other, or just for fun, Missy is your girl. She is honestly the best that there is!
