"I always saw myself as a mother and not very sexy. This experience changed that for me!"
Were you nervous about your session?
What did you like best about your boudoir experience?
I thought there was no way I was looking sexy in these photos, until Katie showed me the back of her camera. What a confidence booster mid-session! It gave me the courage to keep going and let my nerves subside.
What inspired you to book a boudoir session?
I started following Katie on Instagram one day and fell in love with her work. But her work wasn't what inspired me. What inspired me was Katie's passion for instilling positive body image in women. I wavered back and forth for over a year before I actually got the courage to book the session.
What made you choose Katie Lynn?
She's inspiring and empowering to not only her clients but all women that read her posts and blog. Katie is not just taking boudoir photos, she's changing women's lives!
Did the experience help give you a more positive perception of yourself?
Absolutely! When I had my viewing session, Katie and I started talking before we looked at my photos. She had my first photo up on the screen and I literally had to stop our conversation and ask if that was really me! I was in tears at how amazing I looked. I always saw myself as a mother and not very sexy. This experience changed that for me!
Would you recommend this experience to a friend?
Is there anything I can do to make the experience better for you in the future?
Honestly, not that I can think of. The afternoon was PERFECT and I had so much fun!
In her words-
Life altering. If I could only pick two words to describe this experience, it would be those. The past couple of years have been very difficult for me personally. I've drastically lost and gained weight, battled with depression and anxiety issues, and had a very poor self image. I only saw myself as the mother of a 5 year old, with a c-section scar, cellulite, and wrinkles around her eyes. I definitely did not see the woman that Katie was able to capture. I spent over a year reading Katie's Instagram posts and participating in her discussions in the VIP group. She was inspiring and empowered me to see the woman I am in a different light. I reached out to her last fall to inquire about a session but I chickened out. I wasn't ready. I spent many more months reading about each woman's session and how it changed them. Each one giving me hope that I could one day love my body like they did theirs. Then one day, Katie put a post on IG telling women to book a session because they deserved it. To take a day to love your body. So I did. I reached out to Katie and again and scheduled that session. I scheduled it for me and for no one else. And I'm so glad that I did! I will always look back on this experience and be thankful, not only for these photos, but for the entire life altering day. I am always one decision away from a totally different life. Thank you Katie, for everything that you do for women! You are truly a bad ass.
