It's so special when a Queen comes in having prior boudoir experience because it means I can give them another opportunity to embrace their beauty! The amazing Queen S wrote such a sweet response to this questionnaire that truly warmed my heart and made me feel so grateful that I can continue to work in the field of boudoir photography. It's clients like her that reinforce the reasons why I do what I do, and I'm so honoured to have been a part of her second boudoir journey.
Have you ever done a boudoir shoot before?
Yes, I have!
If so, how does your shoot with Quinn compare to your prior experience?
The shoot I did prior was more on a smaller scale. This experience with Quinn was so customizable and well worth the money. I had so much fun and loved my first shoot, however, this shoot with Quinn exceeded my expectations.
Why did you do your boudoir shoot? I did it for myself.
The last shoot I did, while I loved the images, I was judging myself harshly, which directly contradicted with why I did the shoot in the first place. So, when I saw the healthcare booking fee, I just had to jump on the opportunity to work with Quinn. I wanted to see all the changes I've made over the last year and be able to give myself the credit I deserve for my journey.
What was your favourite part of the session?
Honestly, the personal touch and atmosphere. I came into the shoot feeling very well prepared, with all the resources and tips from Quinn leading up to the shoot, I found I had less apprehension because of all the information I received beforehand. I knew which outfits to try, I looked over my shoes, my nails and my skin ahead of time. The info is provided for you to refer back to, accompanied by a personal touch of affordable mentions to ensure anyone can experience a shoot in outfits that make you feel confident and sexy. Quinn provided different examples of different styles to help me choose which makeup/shooting style would fill me with the most confidence. Truly a very personalized experience! The personal touch did not end there, coming into the shoot, Quinn's studio was warm, clean, beautiful and smelled nice. Quinn herself was warm and welcoming, launching us into comfortable, friendly banter with relatable topics. She kept that energy up throughout the session, which kept me out of my head and more focused on the fun I was having and the excitement for the finished product. Not to mention how much she hypes you up throughout THE WHOLE THING!
What did doing this shoot do for your self-confidence, self-worth, and self-image? Tell me your story.
I was incredibly stressed with prior changes coming up and currently happening, I also felt it was time I tried to look at myself in a different light. Hearing the reassurance of someone such as Quinn, whose experience is evident even in the layout of her studio, I felt incredibly confident. I truly did feel that I was nailing the poses, and every time Quinn showed me what had been captured, I was in awe. My self-worth and image increased for sure. To the point where I was telling coworkers about the shoot and even showing them some of the photos!
Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different?
It was not; I was expecting to be put in a few poses, struggle to hit the suggested angles, and feel awkward and much more naked than I usually am. This entire shoot felt fun and light, and when I wasn't quite getting the pose, Quinn was reassuring and patient. I never felt that I was taking too long or that I was stupid; I just felt light and pumped up. Quinn was easy to talk to and joke with, so I never felt a lull in the energy.
What was the best part of your experience? Would you change anything?
Honestly, I don't know where to begin. I think the best part has been the personal touches that Quinn does to help make the session yours to own! From the moment you walk in to the time your head hits the pillow later that night, you feel like you rocked the shoot and that you are the hottest thing to bless your mutuals.
