Tell us your story! Why did you want to do a boudoir session?
This was my second boudoir session. I wanted to do something special, both for myself and for my boyfriend. A year earlier, I had major knee surgery and through my rehab I went through a bit of a body transformation. I wanted to capture this time in my life when I was feeling extremely confident, and I remember how awesome my first experience with Laura was.

What made you choose Own Your Sexy?
I originally found Own Your Sexy on Living Social. I had never done anything like this so it was a total shot in the dark and I did not tell anyone about it until my session was complete. For the second session, I received an email about another session promotion package and jumped right on it!
The black little dress came from Target 🙂 The lace bodysuit was from Laura’s collection, it’s from Victoria’s Secret and I want one of my own but it’s been discontinued!! I also did a golf theme for one of my sets so I brough my own accessories for that one. I don’t own much jewelry so I went for Laura’s collection for the various jewelry items.
I am always planning , so I had thought out my whole session before I arrived. I knew which sets and outfits I wanted in advance. It made the process go very smoothly. I brought most of my own clothing because I know how it fits me and honestly, something simple can be the sexiest thing.

Would you offer any advice to other women who are considering doing a boudoir shoot?
Laura makes the whole session so easy and comfortable. My advice is to plan out your outfits and sets in advance so that you don’t have to think about that part. Give yourself a little pep talk beforehand so that you arrive feeling confident, and then just listen to Laura, she is an expert at suggesting poses that make the photos fantastic.
How did you feel during the experience? What was your favorite moment?
I felt great about the experience. The makeup artist, Zuleika, is soooo fantastic and made me feel like I had mermaid hair. She is literally the only stylist who has even been able to make my hair do what she does with it. My favorite moment, though, is looking at the photos immediately after the shoot to see how amazing everything looks. You don’t always expect it working in a small studio, but I am always impressed with even the untouched shots.
What does SEXY mean to you?
Confidence, being yourself and letting your personality shine through.
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?
Immediately after my session, I always feel super confident and beautiful. That sort of starts to fade after a couple days back to normal, but then you get your final photos and the whole feeling comes back! And you have the images to share with someone special and that boosts your confidence even more when they tell you how much they like them 🙂
Is there anything else you would like to share with us or our blog readers?
I just can’t recommend Own Your Sexy enough. Laura delivers a fantastic experience and an amazing final product.
