Its FRIDAY! And my lovely boudoir clients have hooked me up with some KILLER images to share with you over the next few weeks. Friday favorites are, well, my favorite! Boudoir can be a very vulnerable thing and I love to hear about it from my client’s perspective. When I got this email I was in TEARS! Her worlds seriously just lit a fire in me and reminded me why I do what I do! Ok, ok, I’ll let her tell her Blush & Tease story…
“My adventure with Adena started when I wanted to get “best wifey award” 😉 by secretly doing a shoot for my husbands wedding present. I mean what kind of guy wouldn’t like beautiful pictures of his wife that he can look at for years to come!?
After many emails we finally set a date. As I anxiously awaited for the day to come, I looked at her Instagram countless times wondering how in the world am I ever going to look like that? All of the women she posted were so effortlessly stunning. Their hair always fell perfectly, their makeup was spot on and of course their outfits (or lack there of) were AMAZING.
I started posting ideas to my Pinterest board and shopping for my own shoot. This was probably one of the hardest parts because honestly, I had never shopped for lingerie! I didn’t know where to start! With some guidance from the Victoria’s Secret employees I found my wardrobe for the day and I felt ready to conquer my fears of being in front of the camera.
Before I knew it it was the week of my photo shoot! Of course, I ate super healthy and did a few more squats than normal with hopes it would make me look better for my shoot. But who was I kidding…Adena could make a walrus look sexy! The day of the shoot my nerves were running high for a number of reasons, one of them being having to flat out lie to my fiancé about my plans for the day!
I stepped into the studio and I immediately felt welcomed and my nerves simmered down a bit (thank you mimosas!). Adena and her team have such a natural and easy going way of interacting with you. Conversations flowed easily and they did a stellar job preparing me for the shoot. I felt energized, naturally sexy and confident. As the shoot progressed I got more adventurous. Adena was always able to gage my comfort and never put me in a place where I didn’t feel comfortable. There really isn’t a word to describe how I felt that day. Empowered, gorgeous, spontaneous, giddy…..I could go on and on.
