I have never thought of myself as sexy.
Even when I was 100 lbs.
It has taken a lot for me to start loving my body again. I know that my husband loves my body no matter what, but when you have gained and lost as much weight as I have and carried a baby it can be hard to ever feel that love for your body again.
Then I found out about Boudoir Photography Sessions.
I could never do anything like that. I have just never been that comfortable with my body.
One day I received an e-mail from my good friend and former college roommate, Jen, who works for Daily Deals For Moms. She wanted to inform me that they were offering a deal for a Boudoir Photos Session at more than half off the regular price. I thought about it for a while and figured what the hell.
I was nervous about it for months. I thought about giving it to someone else or just backing out altogether. I couldn’t imagine getting photos of myself half-naked or whatever they do in those photo sessions.
After freaking out about it for a few months I finally e-mailed Brady Kesling from Mobile Boudoir. My friend Jen did it and had a great time with it. She was very conservative with hers, but still managed to be sexy. I figured if I was going to do it I was going to go all out. No showing my coslopus or floppy boobs but I like the idea of looking like you’re naked without showing anything. I think that is so much sexier than showing all of your goodies.
The date was set. November 19th at 3:00 pm. I texted my SiL, Michelle, and begged her to come with me. Of course she agreed. Who doesn’t want to see their slightly chubby SiL half-naked. I was so glad that she joined me for my adventure. I couldn’t have done it without her.
Mobile Boudoir will come to your house or Brady will take your photos in a studio. It is up to you. I opted for the studio. I wasn’t all about trying to get the family out of the house for my photo shoot. Dave was very appreciative, especially because it was his birthday and football was on.
I researched poses and ideas for my shoot. I went to Dots and bought some cute accessories. When I arrived at the studio my mind went blank. I freaked out a bit. I forgot all of my ideas. Thankfully Brady was super nice and NOT CREEPY AT ALL! You never know what you are going to get and I was so pleased at how nice Brady was. He was very respectful. Luckily my SiL had some fabulous ideas.
Like I said before, I couldn’t have done this without her. Let’s just say she saw a lot of me during the photo session and helped out a lot in adjusting my floppy boobs. She was a lifesaver.
Brady took about 1000 photos. I was so impressed. Of course, not all of those photos were pleasant, but I was able to find some very flattering photos. Brady Kesling really did a great job.
And now what you have all been waiting for….
I think I may have found my sexy…
Have you ever thought about a Boudoir Photo Shoot? I highly suggest it!
