Miss "J" | Portland OR Boudoir

Reason 345,693,291 why I love shooting boudoir! Meet Miss J...

Throughout my life I have struggled with my body image. As a teen I did a lot of modeling, so I was always hyper focused about my appearance. At age fourteen and a height of 5'11" I weighed only 135lbs, yet I distinctly remember the modeling agency telling me I was overweight and needed to cut back. This was devastating for me. Eventually I got out of the biz, but I continued to worry about my weight and being thin. I'm twenty-seven now, and have finally realized that I am beautiful and healthy at whatever weight I happen to be. It was this realization that led me to The Beauty & Boudoir Studio! I chose to do the boudoir photo shoot with Lanett to celebrate myself and my body in all its beautiful forms.

I wasn't nervous about being in my skivvies or birthday suit, but I was concerned that I would be an awkward model who made the wrong face/pose and ruined the photos! However Lanett was incredibly good at posing me and telling me how to form my facial expressions or when to relax my face!

The photoshoot was a blast! Lanett was personable and funny. We chatted casually throughout the shoot and her excitement after snapping a particularly sexy photo was so adorable! The session felt more like taking photos with a best friend rather than with a complete stranger.

What I liked most about the experience was the boost in self-confidence I felt during and after the photoshoot. Lanett made me feel so beautiful, and I was on cloud nine even before I had the chance to see the photos! And of course Lanett has a real eye for this stuff, so the photos turned out to be absolutely stunning.

I would tell them not to think twice about it! Working with The Beauty & Boudoir Studio is not something you will find yourself regretting. There's no risk. You may feel nervous or awkward at first, which is completely natural, but it won't be long before you're laughing and having fun with it. Whether you're a professional model or a single mom, your photos are going to turn out beautifully and the confidence boost you're left with will make you feel like you can take on any challenge!

I feel more confident, beautiful and accepting of my curvy body. Best decision of 2017!
