A lot of times when Max and I tell people what we do, the person we're talking to remarks that they're too curvy to do a boudoir session, using terms much harsher than "curvy" to describe themselves. "Oh, if I could lose xx more pounds I may consider that". It really hurts my heart to hear statements like these. Every. Single. Woman. Deserves to feel beautiful. It hurts to think that there are women out there, loads of them, who don't feel beautiful because in their mind they weigh too much. Because at some point in their lives, or at many points in their lives, they were reminded that society reserves the "beauty" title for only those thin enough to grace the cover of our magazines. Well this is bullshit. All of our clients are all brave to trust us to photograph them in the most vulnerable way possible, but our curvy clients are extra brave because not only are they allowing themselves to be vulnerable, but they're also saying "EFF what society's definition of beautiful is! I'm beautiful too, damn it!"
"Before the session, my biggest fear was that I wouldn't LOVE any of the pictures because of my weight. I'm always self-conscious and there is always something I don't like about myself. I was SO wrong. There are no words to describe the way I feel about my pictures. Jen and Max know just what to do and just how to pose you to make you look flawless and make you feel incredibly sexy. When I saw those pictures for the first time, I was beyond impressed. I couldn't believe that was me!"
"They are genuinely in love with what they do and they are amazing at it. I felt so comfortable and relaxed."
"A friend of mine was so excited to step outside the box and do one and was getting so excited about it that I decided to set up an appointment too. From the time I set up my appointment until the day I walked through the door of the studio, I was a ball of nerves. I was so worried about everything (because that's just who I am). "What am I going to wear? How am I going to pose? What was I thinking? I'm overweight and there is no way I'm going to feel sexy." Boy was I wrong. As soon as you walk in and meet them, they make you feel comfortable. They are excited to work with you and are sure that you are going to look fabulous. The girls who did my hair and makeup were amazing. I felt so beautiful. During the shoot, Jen and Max would say things like "Stunning!" "Wow! That was incredible!" "Just wait until you see what I'mseeing." That is what truly stuck out to me. When they were raving about how beautiful and sexy I looked, I couldn't help but smile and feel even that much more wonderful."
"If you are terrified of booking a shoot, know that you are not alone. I was too. But now, I don't know what I was so afraid of. This was one of the most amazing things I have ever done. In fact, I would absolutely LOVE to do another one. It's almost like a high. You feel wonderful, you look amazing, and you leave there looking at yourself differently then when you came. Don't second guess yourself. Book a session with Jen and Max! You won't regret it." -Danielle
