What do you do for a living?
Full-time graduate student, full-time cat mom, part-time teacher and barista.
Why did you want to do a boudoir session?
I wanted something special to give to my fiancé as a wedding gift!
What made you choose Wallflower?
The photos in Christina’s portfolio are absolutely gorgeous. I could not find any other photographer in the area that had pictures which even remotely compared to her body of work. The reviews and Boudie Blog helped me feel comfortable with my decision, and I loved her before and after photos.
Were you nervous at all to do your shoot?
YES. I was so nervous. I briefly considered canceling. I thought, “average people like me don’t do boudoir shoots,” and “you aren’t pretty enough to do these kinds of photos,” and “your photos won’t turn out as good as the ones on her website.” But I was so wrong. I assumed it might be like working with one of the photographers you see on America’s Next Top Model, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. I am so happy I did not chicken out! Christina is so encouraging and helps create the perfect poses and looks for the shoot and captures amazing images!
What was your favorite part of the experience?
Christina makes the entire experience like doing a photo shoot with an old friend. It was fun to feel pampered and have my hair and makeup done. I was so sad when my session was over!
What would you tell a friend if they were thinking about doing a boudoir session?
I would tell them to book a session with Christina ASAP! It is some of the most fun you will ever have!
What was it like to see your photos?
It was unreal. Christina made a beautiful slideshow and I could not believe the images on the screen were ME! The photos all looked like me, but I looked sexy, strong, and empowered. I am stunned at how it turned out.
Was everything what you expected it to be when you first got in touch?
Not at all. It was better than I had expected! At the consultation, Christina answered all of my questions, discussed what looks I was hoping for, and how to select outfits that would look best for me in photos. She made me feel confident and prepared for my upcoming session!
Do you see yourself differently after having your session?
Yes. I have always struggled with body image and self-confidence issues. My session showed me that I can be empowered and beautiful just the way that I am.
Anything else you’d like to throw out there?
Do yourself a favor and schedule a session! You are beautiful. You are worth it. Your photos will be incredible. You will not regret it.
