A big part of boudoir revolves around your experience from the day you book your session up until you're ordering appointment. Feeling comfortable, prepared and confident goes a long way in ensuring that your journey is filled with positivity and empowerment. Queen K's booked her session as both a gift to herself and her partner, it was a way for her to appreciate how far she's come on her path to self-improvement and to share that with those who've supported her throughout.
Have you ever done a boudoir shoot before? If so, how does your shoot with Quinn compare to your prior experience?
I had never done a boudoir shoot before, but I had been curious. I have been on a path of self-improvement that includes pushing myself out of my comfort zone at times. I decided this would be a great way to celebrate turning 47 and my weight loss (78 lbs. lost at the time of my shoot). I thought it would be a great gift for myself and an anniversary gift for my supportive hubby (15 years).
Why did you do your boudoir shoot?
I did a lot of research and was blown away by Quinn’s webpage and social media sites. Her reviews were amazing, and you could FEEL the skill of her photography and the empowerment of her clients coming through.
Was your experience what you were expecting? I loved the prep emails with tips for grooming, what to expect, and even where to buy lingerie. I had no nerves on the day of my session because I knew what to expect. In fact, I showed up with 13 outfits! I loved shopping for unique colours and outfits. The shoot itself is a workout. You are holding poses you don’t normally do. I felt it the next day.
What was your favourite part of the session?
The best part of the session was how comfortable Quinn made me feel in my underwear and in front of the camera. I was not one to take or enjoy photos prior. I practiced taking selfies to get better at being in front of the camera. I felt so glamorous with my makeup by the talented Jessica Mercury. Quinn was fantastic at posing me and talking me through the shoot. She coaches you with humour and kindness. She really wants you to look your best. I was able to relax and have fun with it. Her skill is second to none in capturing all of her client's beauty. She has the eye and talent of a true artist, and I love that she celebrates all body sizes and shapes. I wish all my friends and loved ones would do this experience at least once to celebrate their beauty. If they do, they need to see Quinn. I know I hope to come back in the future and do a session again!
