Bella's Brand Ambassador Shoot - Mildura Boudoir Photographer
So in these blogs I'm always writing from Lauren's perspective, Lauren's love and pride in her clients is so loud it has been easy to resonate with her and write about everyone but I thought it's time I say what working with Lauren has meant to me. I first met Lauren after hearing about her donating a package to the Rotary Charity Ball when she was first launching Pure Beauty. I honestly couldn't have been more excited, as a lover of lingerie I'd been wanting to do a shoot for so long so I was very quick to book in a consultation. From the get go Lauren was this absolute ball of positivity and enthusiasm and I couldn't wait to work with her. It has been such a pleasure to work alongside Lauren in her mission to empower women and help them see the pure beauty within themselves. I have grown so much more confidence in myself being apart of Pure Beauty and felt so much joy seeing women of all shapes and sizes discover how truly beautiful they are both inside and out. I can't wait to see what the future holds for Lauren and Pure Beauty, I know the future is bright for this amazing woman.
Did you have any obstacles or fears about doing this session?
I just hoped my own insecurities wouldn't get the best of me like my first shoot. Was an absolute breeze this time!
What made you take the leap of faith to do a boudoir session?
Being a lover of lingerie it's something I had always wanted to do but always told myself "when I get skinnier". Finally started to accept my body for what it was and learn to love it.
Did I provide enough pre-session info?
Absolutely. Did not feel under prepared at all
How did you feel BEFORE your session?
I felt great, I knew I was going to have a great time with the girls
How did you like working with my team? Did you love your hair & makeup?
Loved my hair and make up, felt fabulous!
How would you describe the session? (poses, direction, comfort level, thoughts, FEELINGS)
Lauren is just so involved, you can just see the thoughts and ideas ticking through her head as she gets down on the ground to show you poses. You feel so much more confident seeing it demonstrated for you
Was the session different than you expected? If so, how?
No, it was exactly as fun and wonderful as I expected
How did you feel AFTER your session?
Exhausted! Prepare yourself for a bit of a workout!
What was your favorite part?
Just having a fun day with two incredibly energetic ladies!
What was your least favorite part?
That it ended
Would you ever do another session?
Silliest question ever. YES
How did you feel when you saw your images?
I actually got emotional and teared up a little when Lauren posted my first completed photo to the VIP group, I was just so proud of myself
Did anything change about the way you see yourself after the session?
I have always disliked smiling with my teeth exposed but I got to see some really lovely shots with a big smiling grins
Do you have any advice for women considering doing a boudoir session?
As hard as it can be, you just need to absolutely let go of any inhibitions you have and give in to the experience.
Any final thoughts on your session, or anything you'd like other woman to know?
I just had the best time and can't wait to do it again. The excitement for my reveal is crazy! Lauren knows how to bring out the pure beauty in all her clients so there is no way this can be an experience you will regret!
