Jess's Brand Ambassador Shoot - Mildura Boudoir Photography
Battling with her own self image like so many of us, Jess was a prime example of what immersing yourself in a group of supportive and empowering women can do for your self esteem. I chose Jess as one of my brand ambassadors as she is exactly what I see as a Pure Beauty, someone who may not have always seen their own beauty but has the willingness to embrace the support of others and in turn support them in discovering their Pure Beauty along with their own. From the first group shoot Jess has just flourished on camera and exudes so much strength and elegance.
Did you have any obstacles or fears about doing this session?
I compared myself a lot to the other girls so I was excited and pooping myself all at the same time. It took Lauren milliseconds to make me feel comfortable
What made you take the leap of faith to do a boudoir session?
Being a Brand Ambassador and having the most amazing support of everyone the leap wasn’t that hard to take
Did I provide enough pre-session info?
Everything was provided, price list, what is included all my questions were answered in depth
How did you feel BEFORE your session?
I was Pooping myself and I was so dam excited at the same time hahaha. I had a decaf before my shoot because I so didn’t need caffeine haha
How did you like working with my team? Did you love your hair & makeup?
Hair and makeup were amazing made me feel even more excited about my shoot.
How would you describe the session? (poses, direction, comfort level, thoughts, FEELINGS)
The session was absolutely amazing!! I had the best time so many laughs with Lauren, the poses are so much fun and Lauren doesn’t make you do anything you are not comfortable with, Lauren is very supportive in every way possible, I felt amazing afterwards and wanted to keep going but we had done all the poses we could think of and more hahahaha
Was the session different than you expected? If so, how?
I was expecting exactly what got Lauren makes you feel comfortable, excited and amazing as soon as you walk through the door.

Would you ever do another session?
OMG YAAAAASSSSS is do one everyday if I could
How did you feel when you saw your images?
I couldn’t believe I could actually look that amazing in lingerie all my fears went out the window.
Did anything change about the way you see yourself after the session?
I see myself in a whole new way. I walk around taller and more confident, I love myself more than I ever used to and if any doubt creeps in I look at those photos and I’m back on a high once again.
Do you have any advice for women considering doing a boudoir session?
DO IT!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!! It is the best feeling you will ever experience. Have fun with it, laugh during the session, try things you never thought you would do and don’t forget “POINT THOSE TOES”, “ARCH THAT BACK.....MORE.....MORE”, “STICK THAT BUTT OUT.....MORE.....MORE” and HAVE FUN
