Steph's Sportswear Boudie Call - Mildura Portrait Photographer
Steph is an incredibly hard working and motivated 23 year old who applied to be one of my sportswear boudie calls. Between working as a dj, personal trainer and retail assistant, she is on her way to becoming quite the entrepreneur. It was such a pleasure to have her in the studio and see her absolute kill it as a sportswear babe.
Did you have any obstacles or fears about doing this session?
I was nervous as insecurities got in my head but at the same time I love trying new things and I put all my fear aside and just go for it!
What made you take the leap of faith to do a boudoir session?
I actually got tagged in a post to enter a competition going at the time and I won it. I was so excited and glad I got that opportunity!
Did I provide enough pre-session info?
Yes! Everything was loud and clear
How did you feel BEFORE your session?
I was excited. Being really into fitness I am always putting extra pressure on myself with my body but when the day come I was just in the zone.
How did you like working with my team? Did you love your hair & makeup?
I loved it! The girls were beautiful and got me hyped for my shoot!
How would you describe the session? (poses, direction, comfort level, thoughts, FEELINGS)
AMAZING! It made everything so easy for me when getting told to go in certain positions and poses. The energy in the room really had me motivated!
Was the session different than you expected? If so, how?
Not really because I didn't really know what to expect so I already came into it not really knowing how it was going to be but as mentioned early I love a challenge and I think that's what made it more exciting.
How did you feel AFTER your session?
AMAZING! I felt so happy and left in confidence.
What was your favorite part?
The whole thing really but seeing the end result and not expecting to be as happy with my photos with my insecurities and seeing how much I loved them was an awesome feeling!
What was your least favorite part?
When it finished! Time went quick because we had so much fun!
Would you ever do another session?
How did you feel when you saw your images?
Very proud of myself to have the confidence I did and extremely happy.
Did anything change about the way you see yourself after the session?
It encouraged me to love my body and be confident and own it. We must love ourselves in order to be happy in life.
Do you have any advice for women considering doing a boudoir session?
As scary as it seems don't let fear stop you. The feeling you get is so amazing and feeling proud for something you have achieved for YOURSELF is unreal. Especially those lack self love really need to do something like this to remind yourself how beautiful you are and to let everything go and do this not for anyone else but yourself because you ARE beautiful and deserve it!
Any final thoughts on your session, or anything you'd like other woman to know?
I think I have cleared everything up. These images are something I will have forever and to look back on one day to either make my children proud or embarrass them :) however I did this for me and I will never forget it!
