Before their shoot, my clients receive a questionnaire to help me tailor the shoot especially to them. One question asks them to tell me their story. Most women tell me about how they don’t feel pretty enough, skinny enough or worthy enough and share with me the struggles they have with loving their body. Some women go into great detail, and some women just write a few words. But the stories are all very similar and I can most certainly empathise with all of my clients. I’m so proud that they were brave enough to do a shoot despite their fears and insecurities, and the results are well worth it!
This was Tayla’s story:
“Beauty standards kill me! I always compare myself to every size 8 women with amazing boobs and automatically think I’m failing at life because I don’t look like that. My husband worships myself and my body so I’m trying to learn to love the skin I’m in.”
This is Tayla’s testimonial after her boudoir experience and image reveal.
“A boudoir photo shoot has always been something I have wanted to do, but I never had the courage to move forward with it. After deciding “what have I got to lose?” I decided to book a shoot with Renee and oh my goodness I am so glad I did! The second I stepped into the studio I felt amazing. I have never been or felt as confident as I did on my shoot day. There were so many laughs, so many smiles and so much fun had between Renee and myself. Not once during the shoot did I ever feel self conscious (which is a daily occurrence) I felt like a queen. Best ever surprise for my husband, and for my confidence. I feel like a whole new woman after that shoot, learning that I DO look amazing in the skin I am in. Thank you so so much Renee, your work is outstanding xx” – Tayla
