Vee's Brand Ambassador Shoot - Mildura Portrait Photographer
Honestly there are some days I feel like a shoot wouldn't happen if I didn't have this girl working by my side. From slaying my client's make up, watering my plants, even play dates with my children!!! For every little thing you do behind the scenes, I can't thank you enough Vee. I love having you in the studio with me both in front of and behind the camera and I'm so exciting to shoot with you more in the new year. Never stop being the amazing ghoulish babe that you are.
Did you have any obstacles or fears about doing this session?
At first 100%, body insecurities
What made you take the leap of faith to do a boudoir session?
I became a brand ambassador
Did I provide enough pre-session info?
You certainly did and always do!
How did you feel BEFORE your session?
Nervous as hell!
How did you like working with my team? Did you love your hair & makeup?
Loved my hair! Thanks Mairee xx and loved my makeup by me hehe
How would you describe the session? (poses, direction, comfort level, thoughts, FEELINGS)
The session was incredible! I’m not flexible so my back arching was hard but in saying that, Lauren made it easy for me! In other poses too! My comfort level was perfect, not at any point was I uncomfortable- maybe the wedgie that I wanted to pick but nothing I couldn’t handle. My insecurities left me and I had the best time.
Was the session different than you expected? If so, how?
Of course it was! I don’t even know why I was so worried or damn nervous. I had the time of my life, even though I was still covered, I’d be happy to do it naked now. Lauren knew when I was getting in my own head, at the start especially. She distracted me by conversation and helped me empower and embrace the body parts that bothered me and now I don’t even look at them twice.
How did you feel AFTER your session?
Empowered, happy and excited.
What was your favorite part?
The whole thing! Mostly the laughter though.
What was your least favorite part?
the end of the session.
Would you ever do another session?
Yes and I have one booked!!
How did you feel when you saw your images?
Shocked, happy, emotional!
Did anything change about the way you see yourself after the session?
100% I am more confident now more than I have ever been in my life. My confidence grew more and more after having my experience and seeing other women have one also. It’s so sad seeing so many beautiful people have all these awful insecurities that shouldn’t exist at all. It hurts my heart knowing people are so cruel to their own bodies. Everyone is beautiful, nobody is the same and that makes you special.
Do you have any advice for women considering doing a boudoir session?
Just bloody do it! You don’t have to go to the gym to get into the “right shape” you don’t have to stop eating carbs to feel good. Just drink plenty of water and love your body for how it is. Book a session with who you are now. You’re beautiful and you deserve to feel it, Lauren is an incredible woman, and she can show you that you are too.
Any final thoughts on your session, or anything you'd like other woman to know?
I am so excited to do another one!! And I’m so glad I have already had one too. Be careful self love and empowerment becomes very addicting! And sharing it is so powerful. So go and book one otherwise I’ll have to steal your booking spot ;)
