"nothing could have prepared me for the absolute love I would have for myself following this"
Were you nervous about your session?
What did you like best about your boudoir experience?
WHAT DIDN'T I?! From the makeup, to the hair, to the actual photo shoot - I loved every second! Katie & the makeup artist make you feel SO comfortable in your own skin, and make you feel like you are most badass woman in the room. The experience is nerve-wrecking at first. You keep asking yourself "Should I be doing this?", "What if it doesn't look good?", "Do I even know what I'm doing?". But as soon as you get your hair & makeup done, and you step foot in the room for your shoot, Katie takes it from there. She helps you ease into it, she hypes you up the ENTIRE time, & your confidence SOARS through the roof. So, to put this long story short, I loved EVERYTHING.
What inspired you to book a boudoir session?
I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with these pictures as a 3 year anniversary gift. But it honestly felt like I surprised myself more, than I surprised him! Lol. After the session was over, I agonized the wait to see my final pictures because I was SO EXCITED & so nervous! Once I saw them, I was BLOWN away!
What made you choose Katie Lynn?
Not only is she the only one doing this around here, but she SHOULD be! She was MADE for this. No, I'm not saying someone else shouldn't do it-it's an amazing thing & I think more people should be open to doing these types of shoots! I'm simply saying, Katie makes you feel comfortable, badass, sexy, & powerful, all in the same time! Her photos are beautiful, not just the boudoir, but the weddings & maternity shoots are beautiful as well! There was no doubt in my mind that Katie couldn't make me feel beautiful in my own skin. She is SO down to earth & helps you the entire time through your session!
Did the experience help give you a more positive perception of yourself?
ABSOLUTELY!! Before this session with Katie, I didn't see myself the way I do now until I saw myself on the screen of that camera. I feel so much more confident now in everything I do, whether it be walking into a room, or simply just laying in bed with my man! I have so much more confidence in myself & I feel like such a powerful woman. This experience is something that I will never regret, & never forget.
Would you recommend this experience to a friend?
In her words-
Honestly, nothing could have prepared me for the absolute love I would have for myself following this outstanding experience. First off, I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to Katie. She made me love myself more than I ever thought I could. For the longest time, I have felt trapped in a body that I never thought I could bring myself to appreciate. This experience has opened my eyes & made me realize that I am a beautiful, empowering, & a badass woman & no one can ever take that away from me. The session was flawless, from start to finish. The makeup that I had asked for, was gorgeous, & truly made me feel amazing, even BEFORE I put my outfits on! My bestfriend did my hair for my shoot, & she killed it, which boosted my confidence even more! Then, it came down to start the photographing process - NERVOUS WAS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. But Katie sat down with me, explained to me in detail about everything we were about to do, & it honestly felt like I was sitting down with my bestfriend, having a simple conversation. When she started photographing, she started out simple, which made me feel so much more relaxed. As the shoot went on, though, I could feel myself getting more & more into it! By the end, I was HOOKED. When you look into that camera so fiercely, you feel like nothing but a badass & powerful woman, & let me tell you...IT'S A HIGH. You are on cloud 9 the entire. time. It's something I could never really put into words, but, it's something that I highly recommend to every single woman. If you're looking to book this shoot but keep second guessing yourself, here's your answer... DO IT. You WON'T regret it! I could never thank Katie enough for all the encouragement, understanding, & help she gave me throughout this entire process. I will never think less of myself, or degrade myself in the ways that I used to. Appreciate your bodies ladies! Appreciate what they can do & how beautiful you all truly are! This is our only life, & only body-CHERISH IT.
This gift wasn't just a gift to my wonderful boyfriend, it was a true gift to myself & my body. I will never forget or regret this experience. Never.
My body is beautiful, & so am I.
