I was a little nervous to do a boudoir shoot. My body is just not the same firm and thin body it was before having my daughter. Things just hang a little different after kids, am I right? But Rachel talked me through the entire transformation, including where to purchase my clothing and sending over a Pinterest board for inspiration. Full makeup was included (I chose the option to add hair) and she also provided some mimosas to take the edge off! Once the pictures began, Rachel coached me through the whole thing! Telling me how I was owning the session and just really pumping me up and making me feel sexy. Which made me really loosen up and really appreciate myself in my own skin. After seeing the images she captured on that day I am really blown away. I am now able to see myself in a different light. Not the same ol new mom looking in a bathroom mirror at my imperfections, but how Rachel saw me that day. A strong, fierce, hot mama that embraces her curves and pale skin and loves herself for all that makes her different.
Let me just finish by saying, I did this for ME. Because I was ready to embrace the body I have now, and not yearn after the body I used to have. This new beautiful body birthed a healthy and gorgeous baby girl, and that alone is something to be proud of. You have to love yourself, that is something Rachel said to me during this journey and she was right!
Rachel, I cannot thank you enough for opening my eyes to how beautiful I really am, and showing me in a way I never thought possible. You made everything so easy and fun and I would do this again with you in a heartbeat and not even be nervous. I know for a fact I would be in great hands! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
