Let me tell you how F'n awesome it is once you get to the point in your life where you know who are you and are actually comfortable and confident with it! This boudoir shoot was exactly how Miss L practiced self-love and celebrated this body and the state of mind she was in! And it could not have come at a better time because between booking her appointment and her shoot date she was newly engaged!
Beside booking yourself a boudoir shoot, there are other ways you can implement into your daily life to practice self-love.
"I found Laura through Instagram. I was instantly attracted to the outdoor setting and ethereal, editorial style of her work. I wanted to have this boudoir shoot for myself. I've never been so confident, both inside and out, so this was the opportunity to document it, and Laura felt like the right person to do the job!"
How did you feel BEFORE your session?
Before the session I was excited and slightly nervous. I've never done anything that required any kind of modeling, so I knew I had to rely heavily on Laura's guidance.
How did you feel AFTER your session?
It seriously felt like I had just gotten off of a roller coaster, I felt a RUSH! I was filled with excitement, adrenaline, happiness, and pure confidence. On top of that, in the few hours I spent with Laura, it felt like I made a new good friend. Laura is an amazing person and easy to bond with.
"To every woman that has considered hiring Laura for a boudoir experience -- take the leap. I can't express enough how amazing this experience was. This was my first time doing a photo shoot, and in the end I felt amazing, glamorous, and one with nature. As a photographer, Laura is great at getting you to relax. She plays music and encourages you to take deep breaths and dance around a little to loosen up. She talks you through your poses, showing you how to angle your body, arms, legs, hands, etc., and even shows you shots on her camera along the way so you can see just how amazing the photos look! I started out nervous and a little stiff, but as we kept going I was really able to loosen up and feel free and relaxed. Once we were through, I felt such an amazing rush -- like getting off a roller coaster!!! I'm ready to go again!! I can't thank Laura enough for this experience."
"Laura's photography style transcends the stereotypical boudoir photo shoot. Being outdoors in the beautiful Austin wilderness is so fun, liberating, and whimsical. This was my first time in front of the camera, and I had no idea what I was doing. Laura provided a speaker playing 90s jams to relax me. We would dance between photos to break me out of my shell a bit. Then she walked me through how to position my body from head to toe. It made me feel really comfortable having such a strong, fun-loving leader! At the end of the photo session I felt such a rush. There was a couple of people that walked past and saw me in my lingerie and I didn't care one bit! I've been called "pretty" and "cute" but never "sexy". I've gotta say...this experience made me feel sexy. Now, even when I go out without my hair or makeup done...it's like I know how hot I can be if I turn it on! Ladies -- if you're considering a boudoir session -- I recommend Laura ALL THE WAY!"
