MISS M's DREAM SESSION
Have you ever done a boudoir shoot before?
This was my very first. I was very comfortable the entire time, which was surprising.
Why did you do your boudoir shoot?
I want to remember my body as it is now. I’m still breastfeeding, and I wanted to get my shoot done before they go back down to a smaller size. Also, as a result of breastfeeding, I lost a lot of weight. Basically, my body will never look this way again, and I want to remember it. I also wanted to enjoy my body after being disappointed with it for not giving birth the way I had wanted. This was a very healing experience.
What did doing this shoot do for your self confidence, self worth, and self image? Tell me your story.
It was wonderful to see myself as beautiful and feminine. I like seeing myself as a sexual person, now that so much of my identity is connected to being a mother. I just showed my husband the prints tonight, and his face was more special than I can describe. His eyes lit up, and I love that I could be the reason why.
Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different?
I was much more comfortable than I expected to be. I didn’t know if I’d be able to handle having so much of my body on display, but it didn’t seem like a big deal at the time. We laughed and joked, and everything fell into place.
What was the best part of your experience? Would you change anything?
I can’t choose a “best,” but picking out my pictures was so fun. If I could change anything, I would have saved up more and bought more prints. I bought more than I planned to, and I have no regrets about getting the additional photos.
