Real Client: Andrea
I started looking into doing a boudoir session soon after I bought the most beautiful “Belle” and “Snow White” corsets from Wonderland Corsets for my birthday last year! I had so much fun during the shoot that I immediately decided that I was definitely going to do it again and booked my second shoot for the following year and upgraded to the Sex Kitten Session! Before walking into my recent Sex Kitten Session, I had already decided that next year, for my 40th birthday, I will absolutely be booking the Ultimate Goddess Session!!! And I can’t wait!!!!
“My boudoir experience made me realize that I am beautiful, sexy and fierce. Being a woman is so much fun and I completely embrace it.”
What made you choose Own Your Sexy?
I did a simple google search for boudoir sessions in NYC, found a few and reached out. I received a response back from a few places but it was when Laura at Own Your Sexy called me back with info I knew immediately that this was the place I wanted to proceed with. She was so nice and down to earth on the phone and very accommodating getting me into a session asap. She even rushed a few photos to me after my session since my birthday was the week after the shoot!
I was nervous/excited for my first shoot and then probably more on the excited side for my second shoot. Laura sent over a very detailed email about what to expect, how to prepare and so on. I followed all instructions, especially up-ing the moisturizer and water in-take a week prior and made sure to get that mani/pedi and felt super ready walking into both shoots.
“It’s so much fun to dress up and be fierce!”
Where did you shop for your lingerie/shoes/accessories? Do you have any shopping tips?
My beautiful my princess corsets are from Wonderland Corsets and my Queen of Hearts corset was from DecayCouture. Besides those I shopped at Yandy, and Victoria’s Secret. I ended up purchasing the main piece of each look, and then used the Dream Closet for all shoes and accessories. I had my bestie at both shoots to fully accessorize me, which was amazing!
Would you offer any advice to other women who are considering doing a boudoir shoot?
To any woman interested in doing a boudoir shoot – I say to absolutely do it!! It’s so much fun to dress up and be fierce, I recommend having some sort of tiara incorporated in one of your looks – nothing better than being royalty!!
How did you feel during the experience? What was your favorite moment?
I felt amazing during the entire experience! From the moment I walked into both my shoots, Laura and her team made me feel so welcome. It’s such a treat to get your hair and makeup professionally done and to play dress up.

What does SEXY mean to you?
To me sexy means feeling in your skin. I felt completely sexy and in my skin for both of my shoots. And can’t wait to do it all again.
How did your boudoir experience impact you? Have you noticed any changes in yourself, be it your self-confidence or anything else since your session?
My boudoir experience made me realize that I am beautiful, sexy and fierce. Being a woman is so much fun and I completely embrace it.
If you are on the fence about doing a boudoir shoot, I’m here to tell you – do it! You definitely will not regret it!!
