I’ve known Miss K for years but have been blessed to get to know her more intimately before, during & after her boudoir session. She is such a beautiful soul. Her smile is infectious. Her sense of humor is wicked. She’s an incredible mother & friend. She is just one of those women that you just feel connected to immediately. Also? She’s sexy as hell!!
Q+A with Miss K
I had been interested for awhile prior to attending the Grand Opening event last year. I was intrigued by all the gorgeous photos Elizabeth had shared but it was not something I would have ever considered for myself. The event is what made me realize that I would be in the hands of a great team that knew what they were doing. I decided it was time for me to invest in myself and once I talked to Elizabeth and booked, I got really excited. I am normally not a very confident person and I knew this would be uplifting and empowering for me. Definitely out of my realm of comfort.
Ha! It would probably be a shorter answer if I told you what I wasn’t worried about. Like many, I was worried about every little detail and imperfection….what if this, that and the other. When we look at ourselves, many of us are guilty of seeing every blemish, every stretch mark, everything that may be considered off or out of place. Prior to my shoot, this was definitely something I was more guilty of.
I definitely was given adequate info. I enjoyed looking at boards on Pinterest to get ideas. I also knew that I was in good hands, so that was comforting.
If anyone, male or female, is considering a shoot, I’d say DON’T over think it! I totally did. Again, I was worried about all the minor details that proved to be so irrelevant and insignificant once I got through my shoot. I have carried this over into my everyday view of myself since then.
I enjoyed the whole process. I took away different pieces from the process. I loved feeling pampered while I was getting my hair and makeup done. Each member of the team has a unique way of building you up and preparing you for the session. Each person makes you feel beautiful and confident…. they lift you up and prepare you for what will essentially be a celebration of yourself, your body, and your beauty- the way other people see you.
I would have worried less. I knew the Torrid team is experienced and fun, but my hang ups still got in the way while I was awaiting my much anticipated shoot. I wasn’t sure I’d like my photos, only because I typically hate pictures of myself and I prefer being the one behind the camera instead. Those foolish thoughts were a waste of time. I also would have booked earlier, because these folks are on FIRE and the schedule is pretty full now. =P
Absolutely! My boyfriend was thoroughly impressed with every aspect. When I mentioned the “possibility” of a couples shoot, he was basically asking when we were going to schedule.
I am more confident and I get caught up in the “minor details” much less often. Seeing myself in a different light was empowering and uplifting in so many ways. This is an experience I definitely won’t forget.
