What do you do for a living?
I am an engineer and scientist. I work in the food industry managing a team of scientists in North America to develop new food ingredients.
Why did you want to do a boudoir session?
I’ve thought about doing a boudoir session for over 6 years but I was always really nervous to do it. I guess I always had this image of what I needed to look like before I did the shoot, but I finally realized I was just having some fantasized image of what I “should” like and not fully appreciating my body the way it was/is. Once I had this realization, I was excited to book my boudoir session to capture this moment in time!
What made you choose Wallflower?
I did a ton of research in and out of the state of Kansas (seriously, a lot of research…) and Boudoir by Wallflower was heads and shoulders above the rest. I was impressed by all of the stunning and tasteful pictures I saw online. Then once I talked with Christina, I knew that I had to choose Wallflower – she was incredibly organized, easy to talk with, and unbelievably talented as a photographer.
Were you nervous at all to do your shoot?
I thought I was going to be nervous, but the moment I met Christina I really wasn’t nervous at all. She was very kind and knew exactly how to guide me throughout the session to ensure I was comfortable the entire time. But if you’re someone who may get a bit nervous, Christina is definitely the person to work with as she will make you feel as calm as possible with her uplifting and respectful nature!
What was your favorite part of the experience?
The whole thing! From the hair/makeup to discussing my boudoir outfit choices to taking all of the pictures, the whole experience was unforgettable! It was 100% because of Christina – she’s truly the best!
What would you tell a friend if they were thinking about doing a boudoir session?
If you’re thinking about doing it, then you already know you want to! I would definitely encourage my friend to do a session because they will be so grateful afterwards! It is very empowering and confidence-boosting, and I think every woman would love to have that in their life. If you have any questions about the process, I highly recommend setting up a consultation with Christina as she was great answering all of my questions right from the start.
What was it like to see your photos?
It was so incredible to see all of my photos! I was already excited to see them and then the pictures turned out even more amazing than I had imagined. I think Christina’s photography, dance, and modeling experience allows her to really have a great vision for taking photos that are truly beautiful and unique.
Was everything what you expected it to be when you first got in touch?
I was very impressed with how everything was so seamless and fun from start to finish – everything was above and beyond what I expected!
Do you see yourself differently after having your session?
Yes! I find myself going back to look at my pictures frequently because I’m so in love with them! I’m also proud of myself for doing something that felt out of my comfort zone initially.
Anything else you’d like to throw out there?
Christina is really the best! I’m so glad I found Boudoir by Wallflower, and I had such a fun time that I hope to do it again someday!
