New Year Who Dis? Intimate Tacoma Studio Shoot
Mrs. T came in for her intimate Tacoma studio shoot this past fall. Instead of me telling you all about her session, I’m going to let Mrs. T talk about it. Here’s what she had to say:
I originally wanted to do a boudoir shoot when I was in my early 20’s. My friend’s mom had done a shoot and had a canvas hanging in her bedroom and I remember thinking “Wow she looks stunning in that picture!”. That sparked it for me. It got put on the back burner after I became pregnant for the second time. After that I had some serious image issues with my body and didn’t think that I would look good in pictures like that. Here I am now in my mid-30’s and I still avoided the mirror. My husband kept telling me that he wished that I could see what he sees. I figured the only way to do that was to have the pictures done. I figured if nothing else, my husband would like them because he sees something different than I do. All I can say is I am bummed I waited so long!
I was a little nervous leading up to the meeting with Autumn because I wasn’t sure what to expect, but shortly after sitting down to talk with her it was like having coffee with an old friend. She got me excited for the shoot, talking about poses and props sparked that light in me. I really wanted to do this, I could do this.
The day of the shoot I was pretty relaxed. Autumn works with some awesome women for hair and makeup that really take the time to get to know what you want. I felt pampered for the first time in a long time. It helps to look in a mirror and go “WOW” when they are done. it was a boost to my confidence. I felt like I was in a safe place that I could really be myself and damned the imperfections. We all have them, we just have to choose how important they really are.
During my shoot, Autumn took me to the next level. Her comments and excitement made me feel like I was on cloud nine! The few sneak peeks really boosted me. I even found the courage to go fully nude. I can’t tell you what an amazing experience this was for me. There are not enough words to fully express how amazing I felt walking out of the studio.
The reveal was the best part! I couldn’t believe it was me in those pictures. I was shocked and in awe. I was stunning. I couldn’t believe that I was saying that, but I am. Honestly, I have never felt this sexy before. My confidence is through the roof now. I could finally see what my husband had been seeing for years. I really am beautiful and there is no greater feeling than when you truly love yourself. That is what this experience has done for me. I love myself again, imperfections and all.
I have now found that I encourage every female I know to go and have this done. Not just for a significant other, but for yourself. Single, married, dating doesn’t matter. The true inner beauty that comes out and the confidence that ensues is worth more than anything. This has been an amazing experience that has changed so many aspects of my life. I no longer avoid the mirror and I find myself smiling at my reflection. I feel sexier, which in turn has boosted my intimacy with my husband. My daughter has even mentioned that I carry myself differently since I had my pictures done. I walk with my head up and I know I am beautiful. I want every woman I know and even the ones I don’t to know what it truly feels like to find your own beauty. I can never thank Autumn enough helping me on my journey, she is absolutely amazing!!!!
Mrs. T is such an amazing client! I’m blown away by her kind words and I have to say she ROCKED this intimate Tacoma studio shoot!!! I hope Mrs. T’s words inspired you. Make 2018 your year of self-love!
