Matt and Mikayla Couples Shoot - Mildura Boudoir Photographer
Upon meeting Matt and Mikayla I knew this was going to be a fun shoot! Mikayla a 22 year old retail supervisor, had already inquired about doing her own solo boudoir shoot before I announced the couples boudie call. This adorable couple had so much chemistry during their session and I can't wait to see what the future holds for this match made in heaven.
Did you have any obstacles or fears about doing this session?
We were both a little nervous but wasn’t really an obstacle or fear as such.
What made you take the leap of faith and do a boudoir session?
Because we are both our most confident selves when we are together. We knew it’d be something fun and different for us to do together and after having two kids, we needed that time to really appreciate one another again.
Did I provide enough pre-session info?
Absolutely. You were incredibly helpful whenever I needed you leading up to the session!
How did you feel BEFORE your session?
A little nervous but very excited.
How did you like working with my team? Did you love your hair & makeup?
Bloody loved it! All SO easy to get along with and very easy to make conversation with. No feeling of awkwardness with anyone whatsoever, it was the best. Such a talented team you have. Was in love with my hair and makeup today!
How would you describe the session? (poses, direction, comfort level, thoughts, FEELINGS)
As soon as we went into the room, any feeling of discomfort or nervous jitters were long gone. We were guided into every pose and even two people as clumsy and ditsy as us were able to nail them so literally anyone can hahaha! Honestly loved every minute of our session and would do it again in a heartbeat!
Was the session different than you expected? If so, how?
we were much more relaxed than we expected it to be which was the best!
How did you feel AFTER your session?
Absolutely fabulous!! Felt so relaxed and so confident and even more in love with one another than usual.
What was your favorite part?
Lauren falling off the bed (heheheh totally kidding, hope you’re okay tho! Hahahah) but honestly loved every second of it. Don’t have a favourite part in particular!
What was your least favorite part?
The only bad thing about the session at all was the cold weather hahahahah!
Would you ever do another session?
How did you feel when you saw your images?
AMAZING! Was actually stunned by how amazing they were!
Did anything change about the way you see yourself after the session?
Yaaaaass! I feel SO much more confident about myself because of it! It really makes you feel so beautiful! Matt said he still feels as sexy as always hahahahah
Do you have any advice for women considering doing a boudoir session?
DO IT! DO IT FOR EVERY REASON YOU FEEL YOU SHOULDNT! You feel too chunky? GO AHEAD GIRLFRIEND! YOU ROCK THOSE CURVES! Don’t like your stretch marks? SHOW OFF THOSE TIGER STRIPES WITH PRIDE GIRL! THEY ARE YOUR STORY! 100% DO IT FOR YOURSELF BECAUSE IT GIVES YOU SUCH AN INCREDIBLE VIEW OF YOURSELF THAT YOU NEVER THINK POSSIBLE UNTIL LAUREN CAPTURES YOU AND YOUR PURE BEAUTY. JUST DO IT GIRL!
Any final thoughts on your session, or anything you'd like other woman to know?
not really. Just know that it is the most judgemental-free, safest and most comfortable place I’ve ever felt outside of a home. It’s honestly such a beautiful environment with nothing but laughs, love and good vibes. Nothing at all to be afraid of.
