WHY I DID A BOUDOIR SHOOT AFTER HAVING A BABY
It's no secret that many women dream of doing a boudoir session for themselves. But more often than not, I will hear women say "I have to lose this baby weight first." I've been doing this thing quite a while, so I've seen the outcomes fairly consistent:
Five years later, the child is typically about 9 years old and they still have not prioritized their own desires.
One of my favorite clients, a stunningly beautiful goddess I call Mrs. A. is the picture of beauty and sensuality. She has a contemporary glamor merged with classic beauty; she's curvy in all the right places, and has a quiet, graceful presence that draws people to her. AND... On top of all that, she just had a baby and looks incredible.
In essence, she is one of those stunning women we just 'love to hate' because she seems picture-perfect. But, no matter how beautiful the facade, all women experience their own doubts and insecurities. Women like Mrs. A knew a boudoir session was the right thing for her to get over her 'baby blues.' So, she paid me a visit at my Red Bank, NJ boudoir studio...aka 'The Loft'.
MS. A booked a boudoir session JUST AFTER HAVING A BABY. AND, HERE'S Why...
"I was motivated to do a boudoir shoot. 8 months prior to the photo shoot, I had given birth and was feeling insecure about my body. I was always “in shape” but it was difficult to see my body go through the changes of pregnancy and child birth.
The experience itself changed my life in a way. I never felt so sexy in my own skin. Becoming a mother changed my body but more importantly my heart and my mind. It allowed me to see the beauty in the process and to love myself no matter what I’m going through.
I chose Cate because we connected during a photo shoot that I was on set for as the make up artist. I said to her, “Wow, I need to do this one day! Once I feel confident being naked again, I’m going to set a date and do it!”
(Note: I assured her there is never a wrong time to be naked again, LOL. But, that I would show her the very best of herself to exceed her expectations).
Really, I wouldn’t have done anything differently. I might have brought more outfit options, but I do feel what we chose together complimented my figure at the time. As a new mom, life comes with a ton of new insecurities.
If you can get past your emotions and show the world your beauty inside and out, you may be able to influence others to come out of their comfort zone and pursue a passion they might not of even known they had. That was my goal."
