Post Boudoir Session Interview with {Abby} ~ Pittsburgh, PA

Often times, my clients are so excited about their boudoir experience and their photos, that they will take a moment to humble brag about it in our VIP group. Not only does this help other ladies understand the experience, but my clients also get showered with love from their fellow #taylorraineboudiebabes. A few weeks after Abby’s Boudoir Photography Pittsburgh session, Abby shared her experience with the ladies in the group. They say a picture says a 1,000 words, but I think that in this case, her words were more powerful.

“When I say that it takes me a lot to feel beautiful, I mean it. I have spent most of my life finding a reason to hate myself. Recovery is hard. Doing something like this, giving myself a chance to feel beautiful is something I wouldn’t hesitate doing again. My photo shoot made me feel amazing. From the second I walked in I felt completely at ease. I adored getting my hair and make up done. They did an amazing job. Taylor did everything she could to make sure I was comfortable behind the camera. She did an amazing job posing and directing me. My photos look stunning. I feel confident in myself. I feel more beautiful than I have felt in a long time. I cannot be more grateful towards all the wonderful women that helped me feel beautiful that day.”

Literally still crying from reading this and seeing how much this experience helps my clients. I am also obsessed with how stunning she is. When Abby had originally contacted me about her boudoir session, she told me she wanted to incorporate retro vibes into her photos. So when I found this retro airbnb in the heart of Pittsburgh, I knew magic was going to happen. And girl, did it ever! I think the rest of Abby’s testimonial and photos speak for themselves.

What was your #1 motivator to book your experience?

I wanted to do this session to improve my self confidence and experience something I have always wanted to do. I absolutely adore boudoir and pin-up photography.

Did anything change about the way you see your own beauty/sexuality/sensuality/body confidence as a result of this session?

I felt incredibly at ease behind the camera. Taylor was an amazing photographer and she really helped me feel comfortable and directed me exactly the way she wanted clearly and decisively. It was an amazing experience. I loved having a day to focus on me.

What was your biggest fear before booking your session?

I have PCOS, which means its harder for me to maintain my weight than a normal person without hormone imbalances. It affects my skin, my weight, my mood, and leaves me constantly exhausted. I was terrified that the way I see myself was what I would end up looking like. I have always been extremely insecure with my body. Fortunately, Taylor did an amazing job and I adore all of my photos!

What specifically was your favorite part of the experience, and why?

My favorite part was getting my hair and makeup done! I loved just sitting there chatting away. Every woman there helped me feel welcome and did an amazing job making me look perfect for my photos.

If you were to recommend us to your best friend, what would you say?

Taylor is an amazing photographer and she will do everything she can to make you feel welcome, confident and beautiful. I loved my experience and my photos! I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.

Anything else you’d like to add?

I am so happy I was given this opportunity and I loved my experience. I loved getting pampered and I loved all of my photos. I can’t wait to get my album! I loved doing this for me. I feel more confident and more beautiful than I have in a long, long time. I was nice to take a break from my constant fight with my body just to be happy and confident with the skin I am in. Thank you, Taylor!
