Miss Ashley's Boudoir Session
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Strong, brave kind
Share a little about yourself.
I am married with 2 kids, I work in the dental field. I love to work out. Hitting the gym is my stress relief!! The harder the workout the more I push myself! A life struggle of mine is body image. I have always struggled with this, I feel that many women struggle with this. I'm learning to love myself for who I am. It takes strength to overcome that mentality. Some days are easier than others but I keep pushing forward!
Why did you want to do a boudoir session?
I wanted to do a boudoir session to overcome my own insecurities with my body image. I've always struggled with not loving myself the way I am. After a few years of really working on myself, I felt that this would give me the opportunity to be me in my own skin.
Are you planning on sharing your photos with someone else, or are these just for you?
I plan on sharing my photos with my husband!! I hope I can work the courage up to show my close friends and my sisters!
Before your shoot - what do you remember thinking/feeling?
I was soooo nervous!!! I stressed about it for months!! I couldn't find any outfits that I loved. My planning came down to things I felt comfortable in and 1 outfit I was completely not comfortable in.
What were your feelings and emotions on the day of your shoot? Before, during and after?
Driving to the shoot I was nervous, once I got there and started with hair and makeup I started to relax a little. Cat really made me feel comfortable with myself, more than I ever thought I would be. After I felt amazing, now I want to do another.
How did you feel the day of your reveal? Before arriving to see your photos and when you saw them for the first time?
The day of my reveal I was a wreck!! I am never in pictures so to look at pictures of just me is very intimidating. It was hard for me truthfully. Now I cant wait to get my pictures back and show my husband!!
Knowing what you know now, would you do it again? Would you have changed anything?
I would totally do a shoot again!! Although I think next time it will be different, I will give myself more credit and not stress out so much!
What do you feel other women need to
Be yourself. Do this for you and not someone else.
