As a mom of 3, a boudoir session was something just for herself
It’s been too long for me to remember, but as a self proclaimed workaholic I throw myself to the back burner ALL. THE. TIME. (I’m working on getting that fixed, I promise!) So, I can only imagine when you have 3 little humans to care for, mom isn’t really thinking about herself first. Scheduling her own boudoir shoot was motivation to get back to her pre-baby body and to see and feel herself as a confident woman again. She also wanted to gift an album to her husband, but we all know that’s just the bonus..AMIRITE?!
L started her search for a boudoir photographer in her area near the Baltimore and PA area and when she expanded her search to Washington DC she came across my work and knew right away that was her style. This is HUGE and let me tell you why. It’s so important to find a photographer whose work you love, that resonates with how you want to be captured. And then rest will fall into place. Trust me on that.
Because of the distance, I hopped on a video chat with L to learn more about “the why” for her session. During this call, we talked about outfit options, (which I know for most of my clients is the biggest challenge) how she’d like to display her photos and all the album options.
I live right over the PA/MD line, and I started doing research for a photographer near me or in Baltimore, and I couldn't find anyone with a style that I was looking for- more glamorous less amateur/cheap for a lack of better words. I was just disappointed. I couldn't find any photographers' photos that I fell in love with. I, then, expanded my search to DC and found Julie's website and the photos were exactly what I was looking for- I was sold instantly.
I think my biggest fear was that my photos would not be flattering or I wouldn't like my images as much as the ones on Julie's social media. It definitely didn't come true! I loved so many of my photos it was hard to narrow them down at my reveal.
I loved the experience as a whole- the entire package I describe to my friends as the VIP package: from consultation, extra help with lingerie, make up/hair, the actual photo shoot, to the reveal. It's such a fun and an empowering experience from start to finish.
I have recommended this to so many friends all ready! I tell them of course they have to use Julie because you will not be disappointed! This type of photography is her passion and no detail gets overlooked. You may start the experience planning to give the photos as a gift, but its a total gift to yourself as well.
