Oklahoma Boudoir Photographer: Mrs C

We can tell you all about how amazing this experience this, but we feel like its even better when our beautiful client's tell you! Mrs C was so amazing during her shoot and so gracious to allow us to share a little of her session with you. 

 

I am just your average 49 year old Nana with a bucket list. I was not raised to believe that I would ever be beautiful or even pretty.  I have never felt anything other than ordinary & even though I usually have a smile I just don't feel it for myself.  I had been wanting to do a boudoir shoot just to see if a person like me, Miss no self esteem & not a size 2,  would or could possibly take a good pic, one worth showing off.  I hem hawed around about it & one day Adoralee, the photographers I had been checking out for a year put out a model call. A friend had told me about how great the photographers were here and it's nice to know the studio is not set up in the back of someone's house.

 "So, guess what?  I thought they'll never pick me & I sent em my info, told the ladies that it has been something i have wanted to do for a while but being a little on the curvy side I didn't think anyone would take me seriously & I am a nana who takes care of lils everyday. There was no way they would choose me as a model.  I thought I would lose some weight and call 'em up to make  a shoot later in the year & mark it off my list.  Then my decision was made for me when Ashley sent me an email sayin Hey Lovely we want to  bring you in for a shoot.  Excitement, panic, giddiness, anxiety and shaky hands opened that page to set up the appointment.  I gave myself a couple weeks so I could find something to wear.  I had the old standby white button down business shirt, a pair of sweet bedroom heels that i'd only ever worn to see if i could actually stand in them, and then I went on the hunt for that perfect nighty or something fun to try."      "I picked a few things and got them home the week before my big shoot only to find that, Yes it looked good on the gal on the front of the package, no I'm not 6 foot tall, and OMG it even tho it fit, it did not fit ME!  at this point panic set in and i tried to cancel the shoot.  Fortunately for me I emailed the wrong person, & then I got the confirmation text the day before my shoot that they were excited to see me.  Yup this girl was not sure I could go &  do this after all.  So thus far I have learned that you can not return lingerie, no matter what you pay for it, &  you should face your fears & have fun. Life is too serious and way too short to not have fun."

 So I arrive at the studio, which is above an art gallery a few minutes early & as I'm standing by the door alone on the sidewalk, I contemplate just leaving and backing out.  As I am getting more anxious, up walks Kadi & it was too late!  Oh she had me in the door, up the stairs, and under her masterful makeup pallet before I could back down.  I'm not a make up kind of girl, and she made me look natural and make my eyes pop!  I have naturally curly/wavy wild long hair and she  tamed it and  made it perfect.  So as we talk while she works on my hair I am starting to feel better about myself as a person & am starting to look forward to just seeing my face all dolled up.  if nothin else they would have nice head shots I thought.  Then in the door comes Ashley with her camera and my nerves were settled completely within a few minutes.  When we start the shoot she is so comforting and fun.  I felt like a kid again, like when i used to play dress up and have tea parties.  She made me feel at ease and we had a blast.  Afterwards waiting for the proofs to download was the most anxious time for me.  Yes I knew there were some great shots in there and I was afraid that there were more bad than good ones.  When it came down to it I had such a hard time  picking my faves that she had to help me out.

  "So now I have a new list and it includes getting boudoir pics with my husband in them as well.  Believe me if I had my choice I would be doing a shoot 3 or 4 times a year now.  I did not do this for anyone other than myself.  My husband didn't even know about the shoot till the day of.  So if you have even thought about doing a boudoir shoot, DO IT!  Don't put it off till you drop the weight no matter how big or small the amount.  Just call or email these ladies and enjoy yourself for a few hours.  I can not tell you how much this few hours has restored my fun natured side and I am feeling more confident about myself as well.  Thank you Adoralee, for helping me to see my fun daring side again.  You ladies are the best & you are superb at what you do.  Thank you for letting me do this."
