I love it when my clients share their thoughts with me after their sessions through boudoir photography reviews.
Here are some of the kind words I’ve received. All photographs are used with permission (and if it’s a photo of undies, it’s ‘what she wore’!).
I wanted to let you know how much my husband LOVED LOVED LOVED the boudoir book. He opened the book to the first picture … saw it … freaked out and slammed the book shut. He was in total shock! He was wondering if the whole book was like that. He then got really emotional (which was very sweet) and really savored every page. It think it took him 30 minutes to look through it. He would have never imagined such a gift. So … with that … I want to thank you again for a forever memory.He was truly overwhelmed and thought it was beyond perfect.
I wanted to feel beautiful and capture on camera the way I feel on the inside. I valued the emotions I felt during my session. You made me feel so comfortable, and I was surprised I felt so comfortable nude. You were outgoing, which opened me up and made me feel like I already knew you. You were thoughtful about how I felt and about how I wanted my husband to see me. You were meticulous in getting just the right shot, which made me know I would get the results I came for.
My boudoir session was a gift to myself. I just wanted to have a fun experience and some beautiful photographs that would make me feel good to look at. I told my girlfriends that they MUST do it too! I loved everything about my session, and plan to do it again. I really enjoyed Lynn, who is delightful in every way. I did share the photos with a select few intimates, and they all loved them. Very generous compliments. “Breathtaking.” “Stunning.” “Beautiful.” “Sexy!” I rate my session a 5 out of 5!”
*Note: Mrs. C was my very first client back in January 2011. I asked her in early 2015 about her experience, and this is what she said 4 years later.
I was not secure in my own skin and was looking for a way to find beauty in myself. I was hoping that by having a professional take photos of me, beauty would be captured and I would be able to see myself on the outside differently, better or through the eyes of someone else. I wanted something that would make me feel proud of myself.
Looking back, I really wasn't aware how much I let my insecurities get in my way. I remember walking through the lobby of the hotel on the way to the room...wearing sweat pants, a t-shirt and no make up...and feeling like I didn't want anyone to see me. I wasn't dressed the right way, I didn't look good, I wasn't good enough. I'm really not even sure how I had the confidence to even show up.
I'm a mom of 3 kiddos and my life revolves around my kids and I like it that way. But being an "all-in" kind of mom, they come first, always. I'm rarely "all together"... but they always look great and have everything they need. I have thousands of photos of them and only a few of me. I actually like when my family takes pictures of me because I never see myself! In my little suburban world, I can get away with wearing my pj's to the grocery store at 7am and not washing my hair for 2 days! Never would have have thought I could look "good enough" to be photographed...especially by someone other than my grade school children!
I respected you as a professional (and as just a pretty fierce chick!) so I figured if you thought I could do this, maybe I could! Hands down, I value the photos you captured of me!!! Your talent and artistry are unbelievable! I was in awe of the finished result! Maybe even more valued was the way you made me feel about myself. I didn't feel like an ugly, frumpy mom. Through your patience, coaching and encouragement, I felt a huge weight lifted, confident, playful, and even a little sexy!
The experience was just that...an "experience." It wasn't a photo session. It was therapy and training to be a Rock Star! Maybe you didn't know it at the time but while you were capturing the good, I was letting go of the bad.
Just want to thank you again! My hubby loved the book! You are so talented, professional, and fun, I truly enjoyed my experience, and loved the finished product! I will refer everyone to you!
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your hard work which resulted in the most beautiful photos of myself I’ve ever seen… I was married in late July and gave my husband his book of photos right before he saw me for the first time that day. Needless to say he was elated and speechless (trust me that’s hard to do).To this very day I often see him thumbing through it and I’m still so proud of the way you turned a total tomboy into a beautiful bride. Sorry it’s taken so long to share these sentiments with you, but the praise is well deserved and I will most DEFINITELY be working with you again.
I was scared that I couldn't do this. That I wouldn't be sexy. That my face would look weird. But you made me feel so comfortable! I stopped worrying about 10 minutes into the photoshoot, and that’s because of everything you did to pose me and tell me what to think about (mmmmm chocolate). This whole experience seriously blew me away from start to finish! You pay such close attention to all of the details, from the “what to wear” phone call to the mimosa and all the jewelry you let me borrow, and then the beautiful albums and even how you wrapped everything up for me like a present. You made me feel so incredibly special, like I was your only client ever. And the photos. Oh my goodness. I never thought I was pretty before. You showed me that I am pretty! I am looking at myself differently every time I glance in the mirror. I can’t wait to come back and do some of the poses and the art nudes I was too nervous to try this time.time. I know I can do it! This is honestly the best thing I’ve ever done for myself, and every penny was well-spent.
My boudoir session was a gift to myself, something I wanted to do for a while. My session with Lynn was a fantastic experience. It’s something every woman should do just for herself. I loved the variety of outfits, poses, styles. My husband loves the pictures and the album. He thinks it is beautiful. I would definitely do it again!
