Queen Jenise-"To Celebrate My Body"

Have you ever done a boudoir shoot before? If so, how does your shoot with Quinn compare to your prior experience?

Yes. Quinn has it down to a precision art, from the poses to the outfits to the sets. I never felt rushed. She provided clear and extensive instructions, even showing me the pose herself first, and was remarkably detail-oriented, taking the time to do things like adjust my hair in each pose. I appreciate how many outfits and sets Quinn had me do so that I have a large variety of photos that I love. I especially appreciate how Quinn took the time to creatively incorporate the props that were important to me, making sure I had photos that showed my personality and what's important to me. 

Why did you do your boudoir shoot?

I have a genetic connective tissue disorder called Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which results in a disability, and I've had five surgeries in the past five years. My body is not in the best shape ever, but I wanted to celebrate it for all it's been through. Furthermore, disabled people are often not seen as hot or sensual. I want to change that. 

What was your favourite part of the session?

The variety of poses and sets.

What did doing this shoot do for your self-confidence, self-worth, and self-image?  Tell me your story.

Seeing myself with professional hair, makeup, and photography with editing is a new experience for me. I totally could have had a modelling career! I love seeing the possibility of what I can look like with editing and all that, but it reminded me that I also love how my body looks without any editing. 

Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different?

I wasn't sure what to expect, but it definitely exceeded my expectations. 

What was the best part of your experience? Would you change anything?

I felt supported from start to finish, but being part of the process and seeing the photos during our session was awesome.
