When Kandace came for her photo reveal, she was a completely different woman walking into the studio from when she walked in for her session. I know it sounds cliche, but I seriously believe that a boudoir session changes you. Sometimes the change is subtle. And sometimes the magic that happens when you let go of those insecurities and trust in the process, tends to lead to a significant change. A boudie session is so good for your soul. It’s way more than pretty pictures. Sometimes, it can be life changing.
In Boudie Girl Kandances own words, read about how her session impacted her confidence.
Why did you decide to book a boudoir session?
I decided to book a boudoir session for a few reasons. First reason was I wanted to give my boyfriend something extremely personal and amazing for his birthday. He deserved to have an amazing birthday considering his past few haven’t been all that great. Secondly after having three children I wanted to see myself as my boyfriend sees me and the only way I thought I could see that is by booking a session. Lastly, I just wanted to experience something that I never thought I would have the courage to do!!
Did you have any concerns or apprehension before booking?
Before booking I was not very confident in myself and was very worried about letting myself be vulnerable to someone who I had never met before. I mean, I was going to be stripping down and be half naked to someone else other than my boyfriend! It was a big deal for me because I always covered up. I had stretch marks, scars from my surgery and a little bit of extra weight that I never had before. I had lost my pre-baby body which I loved and could never find the confidence once I had lost it. I had a hard time learning to love the new me.
How did you feel before, during and after your session.
Before the session, I was nervous as hell! My hands couldn’t stop shaking and I could feel my legs getting weak at the knees! Changing into my first outfit I remember just thinking to myself, well you’re here there’s no turning back now. During the session, I started to come out of my shell. I could feel the confidence starting to come out and I was having fun. Who knew you could have fun with someone else half naked! Finally, after the session I couldn’t believe that it was already over. I wanted to keep going!!! I wasn’t the same woman walking out of the studio that I was when I walked in. It was a whole new me that was confident and felt amazingly beautiful. I remember the last thing I said was I will most definitely be back again and this time it will be for myself!
I never thought that I could ever do something like this. I was a nervous wreck and had a hard time seeing myself as other do, as my boyfriend does. I had been through hell and back again and it took such a toll on my confidence, on me as a whole. I had gone from being a confident woman to someone who I couldn’t recognize anymore. It didn’t matter what others said about me being beautiful or sexy, I never believed them. I went from having a flawless body to now a body with stretch marks and scars. I just didn’t feel sexy anymore. I didn’t have the confidence to get the jobs I wanted, my nerves would always get to me. I decided I was going to do this for my boyfriend. I wanted to live outside of the box and give all of me to him in a completely different way. After searching around, I found Deb and I am so thankful that I did. She made the whole experience feel comfortable and amazing. Since I have done the session I have become a new woman! My past, the hurt, the tears, all forgotten. I am more confident than ever. I walk into a room and own it. I am getting the jobs that I wanted, my goals are being accomplished and I have a completely different attitude! All I can see now are new beginnings and a bright future. I would highly recommend all woman to book a boudoir session. It gives you a whole new perspective of yourself and the confidence that all of us women need. I will be back again. There is no doubt about that.
Thank you, Deb, for showing me that I am beautiful, gorgeous and sexy! You gave me back the confidence that I lost long ago and brought back the beautiful woman that I am. I will see you again soon!
