I‘m so excited to share Queen A’s story with you all! This was her first-ever boudoir shoot, she had it on her bucket list for a while, but after having kids, she had to put herself last before she finally got the opportunity to shine! Many of my amazing Queens are moms, so I’m used to hearing about the sacrifices moms go through for their kids. I’m so incredibly happy that I got to be a part of Queen A’s boudoir session, she definitely deserved a day for herself and the opportunity to feel as beautiful as she is both in and out!
“I started out a bit nervous, but you were able to provide so much support and professionalism that it quickly became more comfortable. My confidence has never been very high, but how sexy and beautiful I felt after doing that shoot and seeing the photos was mind-blowing.” Here‘s her story:
"As for my story, at the time of my shoot, I was 38 with 2 teenage boys, I had left my husband a few years before (2018) and had lost most of what I had worked for. When COVID hit in 2020, I got laid off, lost my condo and had to move my kids and me back in with my parents, my ex chose to have my car repossessed, leaving my kids and me without a vehicle. I had to take him to court over his choice to stop paying the mortgage on the marital home before he put it into foreclosure, despite his job not being affected by COVID. Prior to the pandemic, my youngest son (10 at the time) had been diagnosed with ADHD, depression, and severe social anxiety and had started avoiding school. He was placed in different mental health programs, and the pandemic didn't help matters. I did extensive therapy through the programs he was with and started working on my own mental health in an attempt to help him with his. It was the most difficult time of my life, feeling like I had lost my independence and not feeling adequate as a mom. Doing my shoot with Quinn helped me more than I can ever explain. It made me feel like more than a mom and more than the disaster I felt like."
Stories like hers are the reason I am so grateful for my job, empowering women is so important to me! I want to provide a space where all my Queen can feel confident and supported.
"I wasn't sure what to expect from the experience, but it exceeded anything I could have hoped for. Spending the day with Quinn and her team was exactly what I needed at that time, and I am so grateful for the experience. By the end of the day, it felt like we spent more time laughing than we did taking photos, and I had a HARD time choosing when it came time to choose." "I have absolutely passed Quinn's name around after my experience. When I did my original shoot, I thought it would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but it is definitely something I would like to do again in the future." "I am so incredibly grateful for meeting you, Quinn and what you do for women is incredible ❤ You are such an inspiration, and I think the absolute world of you! Thank you for creating such a memorable experience, I hope I answered your questions how you wanted, and it has been an absolute privilege to know you!!"
