My friend Melissa had been considering booking a boudoir session with me for quite a while. She’d worked so hard and lost some weight and the moment she saw a special I ran for a “buy one, get one” bestie session, she jumped on it. I think signing up for it with a friend felt less scary…which makes total sense if you have never done this kind of intimate photo session before.
She originally signed up with an old friend, but things fell through. She then decided to offer the other session to a work acquaintance that was becoming a friend. I’m thrilled to say that these two ladies have been inseparable best friends ever since. Planning their bestie photo shoot together brought them so close immediately. They even traveled on a cruise together a few months after their bestie boudoir session! So cool!
The set up for a “bestie session” is that while one of the ladies is in the hair and makeup chair, the other is doing her photo shoot. It’s really a lot of fun! It’s a great way to ease into boudoir if you’re feeling nervous or uneasy about doing it alone. Lots of bonding and woman empowerment happening!!
Q+A with Melissa
I recently lost a significant amount of weight and finally felt less self conscious about myself. I wanted an experience to make me feel good about myself and capture the beauty I haven’t been able to see, and so the boudoir idea was born
I was intimidated about wearing skimpy clothing or being too revealing.
Absolutely. I’d recommend to anyone else that they should try and plan out in advance as far as possible so that you have the opportunity to ask all questions find all wardrobe choices and more.
I chose Torrid Boudoir because I love Elizabeth Zimmerman. There is no one else I would have trusted, period!
Feeling pampered was pretty awesome, it was like being a celebrity for a day 🙂 having a friend there was great as well, it definitely relieved the pressure and fear of the unknown
Would you have another boudoir shoot with Torrid Boudoir in the future?
Absolutely… The only reason I wouldn’t do it again next month is because of the investment. I will absolutely do it again in the future.
I feel more confident and I feel better about myself.
