Rebeka's Maternity Boudoir Photo Shoot | Mildura Intimate Portraits
I was so excited to capture Rebeka for her Maternity Boudoir Shoot, not only because it is such an exciting and wonderful time, but also because of the journey Rebeka has been on to conceive. It was my honour to capture Rebeka celebrating her beautiful body and embracing her confidence. Doesn't she just radiate in her pregnancy!
Did you have any obstacles or fears about doing this session?
Just a fear that I wouldn’t be able to pose properly.
What made you take the leap of faith to do a boudoir session?
I fell pregnant with my IVF miracle and wanted to capture something truly beautiful.
Did I provide enough pre-session info?
How did you feel BEFORE your session?
Nervous/scared but super excited.
How would you describe the session? (poses, direction, comfort level, thoughts, FEELINGS)
Full on (in a good way). I was comfortable the whole time (except some poses were uncomfortable due to my belly) Even doing the nude ones I never once felt uncomfortable. They are so well thought out and Lauren knows what she’s doing. I’m so happy with how it all turned out.
Was the session different than you expected? If so, how?
It was everything I thought it would be plus more. Being pregnant I felt amazing, beautiful and sexy and never once felt frumpy or ugly.
How did you feel AFTER your session?
I felt inspired, beautiful and complete.
What was your favorite part?
Honestly taking all my clothes off and showing my body properly.
What was your least favorite part?
The hot weather!
Would you ever do another session?
OMG of course!
How did you feel when you saw your images?
I almost cried seeing my little preview photo. I never thought I’d look that good and whilst pregnant too!
Did anything change about the way you see yourself after the session?
I'm more comfortable within my skin, and it made me realise I am beautiful and I can do anything!
Do you have any advice for women considering doing a boudoir session?
Just bloody do it! Don’t um and aah, just book the session, turn up and rock that boudoir shoot!
Any final thoughts on your session, or anything you'd like other woman to know?
Just be yourself and it will come to you naturally.
