WHY I CHOSE CHEYANNE MARIE BOUDOIR - MISS M
I have been wanting to do a boudoir photo shoot for a few years now. I almost booked with a couple of other photographers who were a lot cheaper. Money was a big issue for me.
But I waited and came around Cheyanne's Facebook page. I absolutely loved her work and knew she would be the one taking my pictures. I waited for a boudie call that caught my interest and jumped on it. It was something I wanted to do for my husband for our anniversary but also for myself.
I struggled for many years with my weight due to an inflammatory bowel disease. I have never loved my body. I have never been comfortable in my own skin. I was teased all through middle school for being anorexic and bulimic. It was very hard because at that time I had no idea what was going on, why I was so sick, why I was losing so much weight. I stopped going to school. I went into a bad depression which I still struggle with today. But my husband has slowly made me feel more comfortable with my body. Even after having three kids.
I knew this was something I HAD TO DO.
Leading up to my session I was so nervous and wanted to cancel. I kept telling myself my pictures weren't going to look good. I didn't know how to do those poses, I'm going to look silly. My belly looks gross from just giving birth. You name it and it was going through my head.
A couple of days before my session I started my period and tried to cancel. It was the perfect excuse! But no, Cheyanne said you'll be fine I've had women do their sessions plenty of times on their period. Just use a menstrual cup, which I had one. The day of my session I thought I was going to puke.
But the moment I walked in and sat in the chair to get my hair done all the anxiety, worries, nervousness, it all went away. The girls made me feel at home. Like I was just hanging out with friends. During my photo shoot I didn't even remember I was on my period. It wasn't a problem at all. Cheyanne walked me through each pose and made it so easy. We even laughed and talked during the photo shoot. Weirdly enough I was more comfortable doing the white sheet than I was with all of the other pictures.
I felt so sexy and confident.
When I came back to view my pictures I was in pure awe of them. Is that really me? Wow! I look sexy! I loved EVERY SINGLE IMAGE. It was so hard narrowing them down. I'm so glad I took the leap and decided to do a session.
Paypal credit was the best option for us and very affordable. I have my album in our room on display and every so often turn the page to have new pictures to look at. I recommend every woman, no matter your size, your flaws whether it be stretch marks, cellulite, scars etc. DO THIS JUST ONCE. It may not help you completely with the view you have of yourself but it's a huge stepping stone. I hope to do another session in the future and go completely nude!
