Last year I had boudoir pictures taken.
I did it to showcase the hard work I'd put in to losing the baby weight... for the second time.
I was very proud of all I'd accomplished, and had wanted to get them done for a long time.
So after having lost (most) of the baby weight, I thought "what a great anniversary gift for The Hubs!"
You can read about my experience here.
My family photographer and another photographer rented out a very nice suite in one of the nicest hotels in Dallas. They made it an all weekend-girls-only event.
I walked into the hotel room and chocolate covered strawberries awaited.
Champagne was there.
A makeup artist.
Music was playing.
There was laughing and cutting up.
The girls were HAVING FUN!
They did an AMAZING job of making this 5 month postpartum mom feel beautiful.
My pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined.
Allison and Amy were so personable, made me feel so comfortable, and made me look like a million bucks.
Look, I was 5 months postpartum.
To say I was nervous was the understatement of the century.
(and if you read the story about my experience, you know how THAT turned out.)
But I can also tell you that this was not some trashy lingerie photoshoot.
It was classy.
It was beautiful.
It was empowering.
And they made me feel that way.
And that's how my pictures turned out.
I'm not ashamed of them, which is why I will share a few with you.
What I'm telling you is this...
If this is something you've thought about doing...
If it's something you've wanted to try...
Even if you're not where you "want" to be body wise, etc...
I highly recommend everyone take boudoir pictures at least once in their lifetime.
And if you live in the Dallas area, you are IN LUCK!
Allison and Amy are doing it again this year!
And this Mama is partaking AGAIN!
I want you to feel beautiful.
I want you to love yourself.
I want you to be proud.
I want you to feel like I did when I got that little black album with my pictures inside.
I will be there.
And it is my goal this year, to feel even more beautiful than I did last year.
If this is something you've just even THOUGHT about, I can tell you, from experience that
IT IS WORTH IT!
I will be there. I'll help you out if you need a glass of wine to take the edge off!
Come join me, you sexy beast!
