Back in November my coworker told me about a Black Friday special that Shalista was having and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to get myself to do it, so I bought the package deal. After getting past my nerves I found a date that would work and got myself on the schedule to do the shoot.
When the day came around I was definitely nervous and if I’m honest I almost backed out of going. I can’t express enough how glad I am that I never backed out and went to the shoot! I ended up getting my hair and makeup done and it was a great way to start out the photo shoot because I was able to relax a little while feeling pampered.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from the photoshoot, but I will admit while putting on my first outfit I was a little shaky. Shalista quickly made me feel comfortable and natural in the shoot. Once we got going I was having a ton of fun and feeling extremely sexy. By the end of the shoot I was bummed it was over because I was feeling extremely confident and having a lot of fun.
I was beyond impressed with my images and I would definitely do this shoot again. I would say that even though this started out as a little something to surprise my boyfriend, with it ended up being a gift for myself. I left feeling sexy, confident, and beautiful. I would recommend doing a shoot like this to everyone, and I will always always recommend Shalista.
Thanks so much for a great experience!
- What made you decide to do a boudoir session? Please describe how you came to the decision and what finally made you take the leap!
I have always wanted to do a session, and once a coworker told me about the Black Friday special last year I thought it was the perfect time to sign up and get one on the books for myself!
- What made you decide to hire me as your photographer?
Honestly I had not seen any of your work before scheduling the session but after scheduling I wouldn’t go anywhere else! I am so impressed with the quality of work!
- How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?
I was definitely nervous. I was worried I would not look great in the photos. I like many females am very self conscious, but once we got going all of those insecurities and nerves went away. I definitely felt comfortable and extremely sexy. I recommend to everyone to do a shoot even if it’s just for yourself to build your self confidence.
- Now that you've had your own photo shoot, how was it?
Amazing. Like I stated in the previous question I felt so comfortable and extremely sexy. It’s amazing to be able to see yourself and not seeing every flaw. I tend to pick apart myself and I never did that when I saw my photos. I just saw a beautiful confident woman. Every person should do this to remind them of how beautiful they really are despite what we tell ourselves.
- Is there anything I could do that would make this experience completely perfect?
not that I can think of! I had a great experience
- How did you feel about having your hair and makeup done?
loved getting my makeup done! My hair looked great too; but I am a hairstylist so I would probably do my own next time.
