Boudoir Photographer // Photo Studio Review and Testimonial from Mrs. M

Makeup by Amanda Hopcraft Makeup Artist

Jacksonville, Florida Boudoir photographer before and after photoshoot

What inspired you to do a boudoir photoshoot?
I wanted to do something for myself that would make me feel as sexy as my husband always tells me I am. Valentine's Day was coming up as well, and I wanted to give him a more intimate gift than I had ever given him before.

What were your feelings leading up to your session?
I was EXTREMELY nervous, as I'm a pretty shy person, especially with people I've never met before.

Tell us about your experience with Bad Girl Boudoir...
When I arrived at the Bad Girl studio, Lindsay and Amanda met me at the door. They were both extremely warm and welcoming, as if I had been a friend for years! We discussed my thoughts on which direction I wanted to go with makeup and wardrobe, then they helped me pick which outfits would look best for the style I was going for. Amanda did a fabulous job on my makeup and understood exactly the look I was trying to get. Being as shy as I am, I expected to have a difficult time being in front of a camera, but Lindsay and Amanda made me feel so sexy, I wasn't nervous at all.

If you gave the book as a gift, what was his reaction?
He was completely shocked! In the past he had asked me to do something like this for him but he told me he never thought I actually would. Now he says he'll pay for the next session so HE can choose the wardrobe. :)

What's your advice for future clients looking to have a boudoir photoshoot?
DO IT!!! If for no other reason than to remind yourself what a goddess you are.

Well said Mrs. M! :)

Curvy Pinup Girl Mad Men Themed Boudoir Studio Photoshoot

What inspired you to do a boudoir photo shoot and why did you choose Bad Girl Boudoir?
I've wanted to do a pinup style shoot for a few years now. I have a fascination with pinups, even have a tattoo of one on my upper arm. Pinups are a classy type of sexy and leave something to the imagination. I did a boudoir shoot 3 years ago in my home and absolutely loved it! Getting photos done is a definite self-esteem booster. I chose BGB after doing an on-line search. They were the closest to me and after looking at their web site, had all your ducks in a row! Their web site was very informative. They were also quick and friendly in your e-mail correspondence with me :-)

What were your feelings leading up to your session?
Thrilled and excited! I loved going shopping for outfits before my shoot. I went to a lingerie store to get corsets and stockings especially for my shoot. Picking out clothes, jewelry, and props got me super excited. I couldn't wait for my day to come. I also looked at their list of things to keep in mind (nails painted, shave your legs, don't wear clothes that will leave lines) and felt totally prepared for my perfect pinup shoot.

Lindsay and Amanda are a fantastic team! You girls made me feel like a total sex pot. From the beginning e-mails to the finished product of picking up my book and photos, it was a fantastic and non-stressing event. Amanda is on point with the makeup! I told her the look I was going for and she nailed it. She's phenomenal and definitely knows her stuff. Lindsay is professional, friendly, open to suggestions, and did great with coaching me during my shoot. She asked me what I wanted out of my shoot, looked at my outfits, and planned everything out. She had a game plan and I liked that. We all laughed and joked around which made me feel at ease. She showed me the first few photos on her camera and I couldn't believe that was me.

I recently found out I'm pregnant and will without a doubt be using BGB for my maternity photos! I've recommended Amanda and Lindsay to all of my friends. I couldn't have asked for a better gift to myself and my hubby.

You gave a photo book as a gift--what was your hubby's reaction?
My hubs flipped out (in a good way) when he saw the pics! Although I did this shoot more for myself, I gave him the book and edited photos. He's in the Navy and goes underway frequently. No doubt these will make the lonely nights a little easier. We looked through the photos together and picked out his favorites for final editing and printing. His favorites were of me smiling, of course, I was the total opposite and liked the ones where my face was more dramatic and serious. None the less he loved every single one of the photos!

What's your advice for future clients looking to have a boudoir photo shoot?
Don't hold back because you're scared, ashamed, or don't think you're "sexy" enough. I told many of my friends I was doing this and several of them were shocked. They said they could never do something like that. I have no idea why so many women are uncomfortable with their bodies? Don't be ashamed of what you have! Not every man finds a size 2 the sexiest thing on earth. I think EVERY woman should do this at least once in their lives. Don't doubt yourself and think you aren't good enough. Go for it! You deserve to feel beautiful!

Peacock Pinup Retro Boudoir Before and After Makeover Pinup Makeup

What inspired you to do a pinup photoshoot and why did you choose Bad Girl Boudoir?
I have always loved all things retro: hair, fashion, makeup...everything. Unfortunately, I don't work in a profession that would allow me to dress that way so this was the next best thing. I chose Bad Girl because they seemed the most down-to-earth, professional, and fun. I didn't have to go to a hotel and book a special room to have the photos done and it included hair and make-up.

What were your feelings leading up to your session?
I was so excited. And since it was a surprise for my husband it was hard to keep quiet.

From the very beginning, I felt like I was "one of the girls." Amanda and Lindsay are so much fun and professional and they really know what they are doing. The photography was a blast and Lindsay really knows her stuff. I never felt prettier!

You gave the book as a gift--what was your husband's reaction?
I never actually got to see the book and when it arrived at the house, my husband was the one that got the mail. I told him, via text message, to go ahead and open it. He was flabbergasted. When I told him that I plan to do the same thing with my maternity shoot in September, he was excited!

What was your husband's reaction when he saw the photos?
(From Husband) - "I was shocked that was my wife--she looked like a model, she looks so beautiful in all the photos! She was extremely sexy and she had owned the camera that day."

What's your advice for future clients looking to have a boudoir photoshoot?
My advice would be have an idea what you would like to wear, because I had no clue. I didn't plan outfits. I brought jewelry and totally forgot about it.

What inspired you to do a boudoir photoshoot and why did you choose Bad Girl Boudoir?
Bridal boudoir for my Groom-to-be and I chose because the website was extremely informative with all the right answers to my questions. It made me feel much more comfortable right from the get go because all the info I needed was right there up front.

What were your feelings leading up to your session?
I was a little nervous and insecure, but that was quickly resolved upon meeting the girls I worked with.

When you gave him the book, what was his reaction?
He cant stop staring at it!! :) He carries the small one around with him in his uniform pocket and plans to take it out to sea with him. He said it made him feel extra special that he knows the photos (esp the uniform ones) were made just for him. Was a very personalized gift.

What's your advice for future clients looking to have a boudoir photoshoot?
Have your outfits/theme planned out. It makes it go much smoother than trying to bring a hundred different options. I went in there with a plan of knowing what I wanted out of the photos, a certain "look" if you will and I think it helped make it a smoother process.
