Doing this Quesnel boudoir photo shoot was very special to me as a photographer. I was honored to work with Melodie who gave herself the gift of revealing her sultry self with this boudoir photo shoot on her birthday! Turning 49, she decided what better way to embrace your age than to flaunt what you have? There is a beauty and wisdom we get through the years. Melodie shows in her photos that she knows who she is and not only accepts herself but fully embraces herself.
The class and dazzle she exhibits brings out all her inner vivaciousness and beauty. It is a gift to witness the transformation a women goes through when I get behind the camera. I see the light in the women I do boudoir sessions for even when they don’t see it in themselves. I am grateful Melodie was already well aware of her light. There is a sexy, playful and feminine character behind every woman even if they don’t feel it all the time. That’s why I believe these photo shoots are so important. It allows a woman like Melodie to be the center of attention. To put on make-up, get into something that makes her feel sexy and to have those pictures be a reminder to her every time she needs it.
There are so many messages we receive on a daily basis that aren’t so positive. We might be taken for granted in our home life or at work. Spoiling yourself with a photo shoot just for mom, wife, or executive assistant sends a positive message. It says that you’re worthy of pampering yourself, that you’re sexy and not afraid to show it. This negates all those other messages that seep into our daily experience. These intimate photo shoots for women say, ‘I am sexy, I am worth the time, I am a powerful and beautiful, feminine woman.’ The benefits to doing this for yourself can be quite life transforming for some. Some women have never seen their true light shine and I help them bring it to the surface. When I can bring that out at a photo shoot, I am always touched by the way women react to their photos.
We often don’t see how beautiful and strong we look to the outside world. We sit inside our minds, often with a chatter of negativity towards how we look. It doesn’t matter how young or old you are. What I am finding is that the older women are, the less inhibited they are. The more they’re willing to bare because they’ve found that confident part of themselves. When women walk in to do a boudoir photo shoot with me, they might not always start off with that confidence but they quickly open up to the process. I am happy to be a part of the process. Melodie was a joy to work with and had such a spontaneous vibe about her.
In Melodies Words…
Have you ever had a boudoir photo session? Yes or no, what made you decide to book your boudoir session with Photoheart Studios instead of another studio?
I had never done a boudoir session before. I chose Photoheart Studios because a friend had a session and the photos I saw were amazing!
How did you feel before going to your shoot? Any particular thoughts or concerns?
My session was a gift to myself for my 49th birthday. I was excited before my shoot.
What was your favourite thing about your photoshoot experience?
My favourite part of the shoot was how comfortable Paula made me feel.
How did you feel AFTER your session?
After the shoot, I felt beautiful and empowered. Ready to take on the world!
Is there anything you would do differently now that you have experienced a boudoir session?
I wouldn’t change a thing.
What would you tell other women who are considering doing a boudoir shoot?
I tell other women all the time that they should do a shoot. It’s so empowering. A huge confidence booster.
Anything else you would like to add?
As women, we tend to compare ourselves to others. We don’t see the beauty in ourselves. Once you see these photos, we can’t deny our beauty. It’s staring us in the face. I will book another session with Paula. I can’t recommend her enough. Truly an amazing experience from start to finish.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience Melodie! As you can see, Melodie unleashed a strength and beauty in herself in her Quesnel boudoir photo shoot. I thoroughly enjoyed working with a woman who had such a distinct sense of self. Happy 49th Birthday to this youthful, vivacious woman, I can’t wait to help you celebrate your 50th in 2019!!!
