When I asked Maggie to write about her boudoir shoe experience with us, she quickly responded with a “YES!” When I first read this it brought me to tears. Maggie’s reasons for doing a session, and transformation, has been one of the most memorable ones. Here is her story, written by Maggie herself.
Maggie’s Story – Through her Words
I have been a mom for two years. It actually goes beyond two years, when I think about it. It truly started when I decided that I wanted to become a mother. My mind changed and I started really taking care of my body because I knew a human would soon be relying on my health to have the best start to life. I was very focused on this goal and was so fortunate to be blessed with the gift of life so soon into my journey. This meant that I also didn’t fully consider the degree of change my body would endure to support a new human life. Something I started to understand was that my body had a new purpose.
At 3 months, I realized that my body was never going to look the same again. I wanted to have a celebration for my readiness to embrace this change in my appearance. A change that meant I was bringing my beautiful boy into the world.
That is when I decided that I wanted to have a boudoir session with Jolana! I wanted to capture my feminine strength and motherly readiness in one empowering photo session! I was excited to see how Jolanas artistic eye would enhance my almost showing baby bump. She immediately connected with me and embraced my ideas and vision for the shoot. I wanted some photos to proudly announce my pregnancy, as well as photos that made me feel and look sexy. Afterall, that’s how I got to this situation, haha!
Jolana sent me welcome guides with everything I needed to know to prepare for my session, lingerie guides, FAQ’s and also made sure to speak to me on the phone to answer all my questions. She was so personable and made me excited about the photos right at booking!
Her studio space was beautiful. She made me feel so comfortable that I was able to get dressed right in front of her! She embraced all of my varying outfits that I brought with me and was excited to work with my more unique choices.
I will say that her suggestion to stretch before your session is spot on. I actually did stretch beforehand but I was still sore for a day after! Pointing your toes and arching your back when 3 months pregnant was no easy feat! But boy oh boy were my photos beautiful. Her use of light and dark shadows really enhance your shape and make you look sexy AF!
I book Jolana for all my family photo sessions now and will definitely be booking another boudoir session very soon!
