21 Aug Jessica | Austin Boudoir Photography
I’ve known Jessica since high school. She’s actually the one that introduced me to the genius musician, Ani DiFranco. I fell in love with her music so hard and have since named my own daughter Ani, after her. So, thank you, Jessica!!
Jessica is a life coach and personal trainer and had been wanting to experience a boudoir session with me for years. The stars finally aligned and we made it happen…and, y’all it was amazing! So amazing, in fact, that she booked a second session during her gallery reveal appointment for this session. YASSS!
In Her Words
Why did you book a boudoir session? What’s your story?
I originally booked my session to have photos to share with my boyfriend. To send to him and to hang on the bedroom wall so that we could share them. Between booking my session and our actual shoot, we broke up. I was very sad about it, but then I realized that these photos are for me. For me to help earn to better love myself. I didn’t need them to give away to someone else. I wanted to wake up in my bedroom and see my photo on the wall and see how beautiful and sexy and confident I looked. I decided to really work on feeling me loving myself rather than hoping and waiting for someone else to love me.
Going into the shoot, were you worried about anything?
Before the shoot, I was worried about not being good at posing and about making weird faces. I worried about trying to look sexy and failing and looking strange instead. I knew Elizabeth would walk me through the process, but I still doubted my own ability.

What was your favorite part of your session?
Choosing a favorite is difficult… I enjoyed the hair and makeup part of the day, feeling pampered and eating snacks. Elizabeth has an outdoor space set up for photos and I really enjoyed that part of the shoot. Being outside, in the sun, scantily clad, that was exciting. I also really enjoyed spending time with Elizabeth, laughing and talking together and hearing her be so complimentary to me really helped me to relax and enjoy myself.
Would you have another boudoir shoot with Torrid Boudoir in the future?
Absolutely, I have my second session already booked in August! <– SIDE NOTE: She had that session 2 weeks ago and it was PHENOMENAL!
What changes have you noticed in yourself after your photo shoot with Torrid Boudoir?
