CLIENT FEATURE :: Hottie With A NEW Body | Austin Boudoir Photography

 

Devin is another one of my beautiful cousins.  (I am SUCH a lucky girl!)  She took some time off work and drove up to see my family in Michigan during our vacation this summer!  I was so excited to shoot her and felt extra enthused to do it for her because she has kicked MAJOR ass and lost 40lbs in the past year!

Devin works as a sophomore English teacher in Ohio.  She is a perfectionist (much like her dear older cousin – ME!) and is very sensitive and loving.  She’s an incredible aunt to her sweet 1 year old nephew, Easton, and cares deeply for her students at work.  The word I would use to describe Devin is PASSIONATE!  I am proud & blessed to call her family.

Devin wanted a more classic feel to her session — somewhat pin-up housewife, somewhat delicate traditionally sexy boudoir.  She rocked her session!!  See for yourselves!

Devin chose to wear this yellow ensemble because it’s her boyfriend Chris’ favorite color.  And the necklace above was a gift from him & is very special to her!!

Devin’s Story :: In Her Own Words

I recently lost 40 pounds and yet I struggle to feel confident in my new body.  I live in Ohio and when Elizabeth told me she was coming to Michigan I thought about booking a session.  After about a month of thinking about it I decided I was just going to bite the bullet and do it.  I was still apprehensive when I told E that I was going to do it, but as soon as she sent me the Welcome Packet and I filled out the Pre-Session Survey, I got extremely excited for my upcoming session!
.
Throughout the next month or so I was getting my outfits together and getting nervous that I didn’t have enough, or that I didn’t have enough accessories, etc.  I voiced these concerns to Elizabeth and she simply asked what I had.  After listening to me she told me that I had more than enough, that I would be totally fine, that it would be awesome, etc.  She was really good at making me feel comfortable again!
.
Shooting day came and I was ready!  I wasn’t nervous, which is strange for me.  Getting my hair and make-up done was so fun, especially since I had never gotten it done before!  When it came time to get in front of the camera, I was very comfortable and at ease.  Elizabeth is great at giving direction, and does so with a soft, calm tone; she doesn’t bark at you!  LOL!  I also noticed that she is really complimentary.  Many times she said, “Oh, that’s beautiful!” or something to that effect. It gave me confidence in myself and was very reassuring.
.
Overall, it was a really great experience!  When we were done I was disappointed it was over.  I even asked my boyfriend if he’d ever do a couples boudoir shoot with me!  I think that would be really fun!”  ~ Devin

Q&A with Miss Devin

What was your favorite part about your session with Torrid Boudoir?
My favorite part about my session was the whole experience! But, if I HAD to narrow it down, my favorite part would be getting posed and the photos actually taken.

If you could tell future clients one thing about booking with Torrid Boudoir, what would it be?
I would tell future clients that there is nothing to worry about. Elizabeth makes you feel super comfortable in your skin, and JUST HAVE FUN!
.
Would you have another boudoir shoot with Torrid Boudoir in the future?  Why or why not?
Yes, I would! I would try to talk my boyfriend into a Couples Boudoir shoot if I wasn’t thousands of miles away from Austin. I would have another session because it was such a fun experience getting my hair and make-up done, wearing sexy outfits, and getting amazing pictures taken.
.
What changes have you noticed in yourself after your photo shoot with Torrid Boudoir?
I have noticed that I feel more comfortable in my skin. Having recently lost 40 pounds, I have days where I still feel like I did 40 pounds before. Having these pictures will remind me of all the hard work I’ve done, and of the amazing results I have achieved.
Thank you, Dev!  I love you and am so proud of all the hard work you’ve accomplished in being more healthy and taking great care of yourself!  You are incredible!  #SelfLove FTW!
