Boudoir Confidential: Mrs J

Back in December, Mrs J posted a photo from her boudoir session at my Denver boudoir photography studio on her Instagram with the comment, “This is why you should be proud of you.” It took some courage, she said … until the likes and comments started flowing in: 55 likes and 21 comments, to be exact.

“You’re stunning!” “You go girl!” “Yaass queen!” All were fun, and flattering and made her feel wonderful.

“I want other people to love their bodies,” she said. “That’s part of why I wanted to share my photos.”

Mrs J did a Signature Boudoir Session with me. She chose 2 lingerie outfits (soft & sensual and strong & sexy) plus an art nude set. Keep reading for more photos from her session!

3 reasons Mrs J did a boudoir session

Mrs J just turned 47. Over the past year, she dropped a lot of weight and worked hard on her body. She did a boudoir session to celebrate both her birthday and her hard work.

“I’m 47 and I’m not afraid,” she said. “46 was a pretty awesome year. I really worked to accept myself and my body, and it has really helped me in my life. You have to accept yourself even at your heaviest point to be happy.”

Then, there’s her husband, whose birthday was coming up. He’s notoriously difficult to buy for, she said.

“I don’t think it gets any more special than this, to be able to be beautiful and vulnerable and sexy for him,” she said. “My album and these photos are a work of art that he’ll cherish forever. And, I wanted to blow him away … and we did!”

Mrs J’s boudoir experience

“I found the whole experience to be empowering,” she said. “I wanted to be beautiful, but I wanted to be ‘me beautiful’, not looking like someone else. We definitely achieved it.”

Mrs J emphasized how comfortable she felt, even when she was also feeling vulnerable because we weren’t just taking pictures but also allowing her to have an emotional experience during her session.

“At the beginning of the session when we did the posing practice, I saw that you really know a woman’s body and how to enhance the beauty of it,” she said. “I recently had family photos done, and the photographer didn’t pose us at all. I’d just done my boudoir session, and the difference in the photos is striking. It just made me appreciate the attention to detail you have even more. And the mindset work was so helpful to make me feel sexy and beautiful.”

(I do mindset work with my Signature Boudoir Session clients before you change into your first outfit to help you get connected with your body and where your emotions live inside your body.)

She said she also appreciated the wardrobe guidance at her session planning meeting, then the outfit styling we did at the start of her session.

“I think we picked the perfect outfits for how I wanted to look and feel in my photos,” she said. “I also appreciated that you’re good with colors, and coordinating jewelry and shoes, which was an extra step I didn’t expect. Oh, and I loved my hair.”

But Mrs J’s favorite part of the experience was seeing her photos.

“I was crying as I watched them come to life on your TV,” she said. “I was very proud. I saw a different side of me, but it’s still me. It’s empowering. I love me. I’m a foodie, I’m athletic, I’m a marketer, I’m a wife. These photos show another side of me that most people never see.”

Mrs J says, “Put aside your fears.”

As she was researching Denver boudoir photographers, Mrs J said she came to my website and was impressed by the photos.

“The photos are stunning,” she said. “They are classy and beautiful and all of the women looked at ease. I think you are artistic. You are a really good photographer. And you were very good at helping me feel really comfortable.

Mrs J says she’s glad she went through the boudoir experience, and she strongly recommends that women put aside fears about their body or their age follow her lead.

“Any age is the perfect age to do this,” she said. “It was an amazing experience. If you’re looking for a gift for yourself or a significant other, a boudoir session is definitely the way to go.”
