1. What do you do for a living?
2. Why did you want to do a boudoir session?
My husband has wanted boudoir pictures of me, but I was concerned with security and privacy. A boudoir session gave me the opportunity to look my best with professional hair and make-up and then professional photographs taken in a studio with great lighting and props. I wanted a professional experience, product, and positive memories.
3. What made you choose Wallflower?
I looked at a number of different boudoir sites but Christina’s photographs stood out from the rest with tastefulness of poses, quality of the photographs, as well as the color and lighting. Christina’s sincerity and integrity came through the descriptions of the experience and client information. It was apparent that Wallflower was dedicated to the client’s privacy and security in their products through the steps to contact Christina for information as well as the location of the studio. I appreciated the parameters that were established that ensured the client would have a private session and that no others were allowed to attend.
4. Were you nervous at all to do your shoot?
I was not nervous until that day and then was terrified, because it was so far out of my comfort zone. Christina was amazing through her reassurance of the organization of the day. She was so personal, welcoming, and professional throughout.
5. What was your favorite part of the experience?
Working with the sheet and different poses on the bed was my favorite part of the experience. I think that was my favorite part because there were different coverage levels with the sheet and it felt more relaxed and fun. Christina did an amazing job of giving specific directions, showing excitement and being positive about how the photos were coming through as she shot. Christina was a consummate professional throughout the entire experience.
6. What would you tell a friend if they were thinking about doing a boudoir session?
I would tell them to go for it because life is short and a boudoir shoot is as much about the individual in the photos as it is for the recipient.
7. What was it like to see your photos?
I thought I would be looking at smaller individual photos so was a little freaked out when they were all on the big screen but it was completely private so I was able to relax more. The photos looked incredible and it was obvious that Christina knows what she is doing in how she posed me, the lighting and props used, and the quality of the pictures. It made me feel beautiful.
8. Was everything what you expected it to be when you first got in touch?
It was even better than I expected it to be because Christina was consistently prompt in her responses to emails and was great about giving specific information. Christina made sure that she provided all the information on cost, recommendations on what to choose when thinking about lingerie or other clothing options, and how the day would be organized.
9. Do you see yourself differently after having your session?
Yes, in a very positive way. My husband’s mind is going to be blown when I give him the album and wall art because he would never have expected me to do something like this, especially on my own.
10. Anything else you’d like to throw out there?
Christina takes any body type and enhances the positive. I am motivated to get into better shape and do it again! Thank you, Christina, for your sincerity, kindness and support throughout my experience!
