Kelsea's Session Experience | Fayetteville, TN Boudoir Studio
Kelsea came to me in October of 2018 for a gift for her soon to be fiance( who by the way, had the sweetest reaction to her). We had the best time together!
Read what she had to say about the experience.
Why did you choose Whitney Browning Boudoir for your session? :
There are several reasons why I chose Whitney.
1st - I admired the way she was able to capture every clients unique beauty.
2nd - Seeing how so many of her clients talked about the self empowerment they felt after their session. I wanted that same feeling about myself.
3rd - I love how devoted to her job she is, and that she truly wants to inspire other woman to feel beautiful about themselves.
4th - I am in several wedding groups on Facebook, and a lot of girls will share their boudoir photo's. Let me just say this....Whitney's photo's are seriously PHENOMENAL and I have not seen anyone with the talent she has!
5th - I wanted to surprise my Fiancé with a wedding gift he would never expect.
What were your fears coming into the session? :
Oh boy, I was fearful of not looking as great as other woman in their photos. I remember showering the morning of, thinking what in the hell have I gotten myself into? I was scared to see how other people perceived me, especially naked.
Did those fears come true? :
ABSOLUTELY NOT. I was nervous and still shaky until the first outfit change. Whitney instantly made me feel comfortable, relaxed, and we had so many laughs! By the end of my session, I was completely naked and more comfortable in my skin than I had felt in a long time. I even went into a little bit of shock when I did my reveal with her, I could not believe it was me in the images.
What was your favorite part of the experience and why? :
My favorite part would have to be the feeling of self confidence and empowerment that I gained from the session. I went from talking negatively to myself anytime I saw myself naked in the mirror, to seeing myself in a beautiful and sexy way I haven't in years.
How did you feel DURING your session? :
In the very beginning my nerves and anxiety were in overdrive, but after the session began all of my worries and insecurities faded away. After the second outfit change, I was comfortable and just letting Whitney guide me and do her thing! In the beginning I told myself... at least just get one naked photo. By the end of my session, I was walking around naked and in-front of a stranger (at the time) feeling more comfortable in my skin than I had in a long tome. Half of my sessions photo's are complete nudes and I am so glad I didn't let my negative thoughts stop me because those are my favorites!
How did you feel seeing your images for the first time?:
In all honestly, I was in shock at first. I couldn't fathom that it was me in those photo's.
I loved ALL of my images, and having to decide which ones to put in the Album was the hardest part of the whole session. I ended up upgrading my package to keep all of the photos because there was no way I couldn't keep them.
Do you feel like you have a better relationship with your body since your session?:
Absolutely yes! On days that I am not feeling the most confident, I try to re-look at my images and remind myself of my own beauty. I had very hard insecurities about my butt, boobs, and overall body figure before my session. Now, I love all of my assets and don't see them as negative pieces of myself.
What will you do in the future to show yourself some self-love? :
Since my session, I have went through my photos to give that confidence reminder back. I have also tried to stop saying negative things about myself. I think we subconsciously view ourselves how we saw our mothers view themselves sometimes. I have always thought my mother was flawless, and so beautiful. I remember seeing her talk about her insecurities or imperfections as a child, and now as an adult I have seen myself repeat the same pattern. I want to break that pattern because I don't want my daughter (someday) to ever see herself in that way.
Would you ever do another session?:
Do you have any advice for women interested in booking a boudoir session?:
The best advice I feel is to tell women to go for it!! Please, please, please don't let insecurity or fear stop you. I almost did, and would have missed out on one of the proudest things I have done for myself. I promise you, you won't regret it!
Anything else you'd like to share?:
I just want to add how amazing Whitney is to work with and the overall experience you get with a session from her. She will have you laughing, make you feel so comfortable you could just be naked around her and feel you are fully clothed, and give you a gift of empowerment that is so amazing its hard to even put into words.
I previously wanted my photo's anonymous, but after a few months of telling so many women to go see her I felt like a hypocrite not showing my own face in her group. I asked her to change my release, and wanted to be able to share my own story in hopes that it could inspire more women to take the leap of faith and book a session! It truly is a changing experience.
Again, Thank you Whitney!!
