CLIENT FEATURE :: Madame Me | Austin Boudoir Photography

HMUA + Model: Ashlyn Taylor of Madame Me Makeup and Hair
Wardrobe Stylist + Photographer:  Elizabeth Zimmerman

I met Ashlyn at the Stripped Down workshop in Vegas, in March of 2015 (see the blog about that HERE!).  She.Is.Incredible.  I just knew I needed her in front of my camera again, so when the opportunity arose I booked her in immediately.

Not only is Ashlyn a gorgeous model, but she’s also an incredible hair + makeup artist.  She owns Madame Me Makeup and Hair in Hayward, California.  She did her own HMU for our shoot, along with all of the HMU at the Stripped Down workshop.

Ashlyn absolutely exudes emotion.  She follows direction perfectly AND she’s an incredible date — she hosted me at her cozy abode and took me to out to homeroom mac + cheese for a lovely dinner.  Such a fun trip to Cali!

Q+A with Ashlyn

Why did you book a boudoir session? What’s your story?
I was lucky enough to meet Elizabeth at a photography workshop. When I found out she was goin to be in my neck of the woods, I jumped at the chance to shoot with her again.
Going into the shoot, were you worried or nervous about anything?
I was worried about EVERYTHING.  My body is in a constant flux now.  I can gain and lose weight so quickly.  My shoot happened to be at the tail end of a gaining spree and I was not feeling my best.
What would you tell other women about doing a boudoir shoot with Torrid Boudoir?
It is the best possible thing you could do for yourself.  Sometimes we forget our own beauty.  Elizabeth captures our best features…  Even the ones we forget we have.
What was your favorite part of your session?
Being told how pretty I was 🙂
Is there anything you would have done differently?
Maybe bring some brighter wardrobe pieces 🙂   (next time!)
Would you have another boudoir shoot with Torrid Boudoir in the future?
I would do it weekly if I could!
What changes have you noticed in yourself after your photo shoot with Torrid Boudoir?
Well my Tinder profile is off the hook now 😉  (kidding!!) (kind of)  It reminded me to love myself and make my self love and care a priority.
