Ms. C came to me because she wanted to create a memorable gift for her fiance. When she typed "best gift for groom" into the Google search box, Her Story Images came up, and she contacted me about her boudoir photo session. Ms. C had never done anything like this before, which is what most of my clients tell me. She brought her dress, veil, bouquet and even Chinese tea ceremony items to celebrate her wedding during the shoot. Here's what she had to say:
"I was so nervous before my photo session. Then I got here and met Niki and Diana and we started talking, and after that I felt fine. Once I met everyone and saw how warm the environment was, I felt much better. Oh and you also made me coffee and we went over all the outfits and having my favorite music was great. All those things made me feel more comfortable."
"I was so shocked when I saw the photos because they looked so nice. I didn’t recognize myself. It was really nice to sit and be able to see the photos one at a time and to see the black and white and color photos. Now that I have the prints and albums, I look at them at home and I’ve also shared them with my sister."
"If you are thinking about doing a boudoir photo shoot, I would definitely say book with Niki because Niki makes it so comfortable….she is very personable and we talked about life too. It wasn’t all about posing. It feels very safe. Niki relieved all my nerves. I didn’t think I would know many people who would want to do a boudoir session. But, I’ve talked to my sister, and now she’s coming to do her boudoir session next month. I think it’s a really empowering experience, and I think every woman should do it. If anyone is nervous, it’s ok to be nervous, but all the emails and communication help so much. Also talking on the phone before the session helped a lot too, to know what to expect and know more about the process."
