Interview with the sexy Mrs. J // Florida Boudoir & Glamour Photographer

Makeup by Amanda Hopcraft

What inspired you to do a boudoir photoshoot and why did you choose Bad Girl Boudoir?
My sister actually inspired me to do the photoshoot. As soon as she told me about it I was sold! I looked at the Bad Girl Boudoir website and was so impressed and you made it sound so fun and easy!

What were your feelings leading up to your session?
Prior to my session I was so excited about picking out/buying outfits to wear and imagining how it was going to be. The day of the session I was so nervous driving there. Once I arrived and met Lindsay and Amanda I thought wow, I can be totally comfortable with this and soon began to see you both as my friends, not someone I "hired". That's how cool you guys both are!

Tell us about your experience with Bad Girl Boudoir...
My experience was absolutely great, I would definitely do it again. Once I got the hang of the poses and relaxation of my hands, facial expressions, etc it was really a lot of fun. I think it especially helped that Lindsay showed me pictures as we went along. That way I could see where I was tense and make the next picture better. I loved the way Lindsay did my hair so much that I went out and bought the same curling iron but couldn't master using it. I really loved my hair! Amanda did a perfect job with my makeup and my sister and I loved her so much she did our makeup for my sister's wedding as well! I would have loved to have had Lindsay there to do my hair too :)

What was your husband's reaction when he saw the photos?
My husband was so happy and amazed with the pictures and book. At first he asked me, you know, questions like "who took these and where?" And "where was our son that day?" haha husband and father questions. Then he told me he wanted a monthly subscription haha!

What's your advice for future clients looking to have a boudoir photoshoot?
My advice for future clients is go for it because you won't regret it. Lindsay will teach you how to pose and make you feel so comfortable. You will be so incredibly happy with the results! Trust me when I say I had no clue how to pose for pictures like this and my pictures look like I model for magazines! Lindsay does excellent and high quality work!
