Miss M

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! 

  1. 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! 

  2. 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! 

  3. 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. 

  4. 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. 

  5. Is there anything I could do that would make this experience completely perfect?

    not that I can think of! I had a great experience 

  6. 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.

Miss B - Unforgettable holiday gifts.

Like a long tall glass of cool water, Miss B is all legs. Legs for days! We had such a great time in our shoot. She come to me with some pretty edgy ideas and we were able to make those a reality (not shown here, sorry!)

This was an incredible gift for her man and I am positive he was blown away!

Miss E - V is for Vixen

Oh Miss E. 

So kind, sweet, energetic and a great attitude ready to rock this shoot! She's stunning, and how about these images? Rrawrrrr!

Miss D - Gift for her boyfriend and herself

Our shoot with Miss D was nothing short of "Holy SH*T!"

I can direct poses, facial expressing and encourage you the entire time of your shoot, but some people just walk in and the camera makes love to them. Miss D is that girl.  Incredibly sweet and soft spoken, I really didn't know what to expect with her. The moment she stepped in front of the camera, she was smiling, flirting and just *knew* exactly what to do. Makes my job super easy! 

I am grateful for clients like Miss D that some into the studio and completely let it go. It was an incredible shoot and I am sure you will agree!
