I wanted to do a boudoir shoot because I have always admired women who could feel comfortable in their own skin. To let go of their insecurities and love their bodies. Now in my late thirties I felt like it was as good a time as any to show myself that I am a strong sexy woman.
I was nervous but excited leading up to the shoot. It was a reason not to miss my gym classes. It was only on the actual day that I had the photo shoot that I started to get nervous.
As soon as I walked through the door Leigh and Zena were so inviting and completely put me and my insecurities at ease. We discussed what scenes I wanted and how best to achieve them. From then I was whisked upstairs for my hair and make up which was incredible. The transformation was amazing and it gave me the confidence that I needed for the shoot. Leigh was great at directing me and within no time the shoot was well underway and I felt confident to bare more with every pose. As Leigh and Zena showed me the images as we worked though the shoot I couldn’t believe that the woman in the photos was me. Although the shoot was around 2-3 hours it went by in a flash. Before I knew it we were finished and I felt like a new woman. Zena and Leigh had shown me how beautiful my body was and I suddenly found a new sense of love for my skin.
On the way home after the shoot I couldn’t stop smiling. I couldn’t believe that I had spent all these years wishing for another body not realising that the body I have was so sexy! My partner and I couldn’t stop talking about my new found confidence in the shoot. I was completely fearless and it was the most exhilarating experience.
I can’t thank Zena and Leigh enough for making me realise I am a strong, confident and most of all sexy woman. I can’t recommend Mighty Aphrodite enough!
