St. Louis Boudoir Session- Why’s it worth it?

3V0A2744

A St. Louis boudoir photography session can change your life. I know you expect me to say that right?

It’s so true though.

A client posted this to her story following her boudoir session. “This weekend I did something I never would have done at this time last year. I gained some confidence in my own skin. Thank you @boudoir_by_tracy_lynn for the best time.”

So, what I want to talk about is how a session with me is different than anything else you have experienced and a gift you deserve.

A St. Louis boudoir session can make you feel empowered, confident, and beautiful.

The definition of empower is to give someone official authority or the freedom to do something.

With a boudoir session you are getting the freedom to feel beautiful and confident in your own body.

The natural progression of a boudoir session is being self-conscious at first and then relatively quickly shedding clothes and walking around topless in the studio. The confidence one gains in one session is crazy and amazing.

I’ve had so many clients reach out to me right after the session, before even seeing their images, just to let me know how the experience helped them feel more beautiful the way they are.

The emotional roller coaster of a boudoir session

When you first contact me about your boudoir session, you will be nervous, but excited. Once it’s booked, you will be even more nervous. Nerves are normal!

At the session, you are going to be nervous and self conscious at first. I have designed my first 4 poses specifically to help you get more comfortable in front of the camera. We choose a specific outfit that’s easy to pose in, but you are still covered so that your self consciousness won’t show. These poses are great for EVERY body type, and once I show you a few back of the camera images, you will notice your confidence get higher.

By the last couple of outfits, you will be walking around topless because your nervousness has disappeared, and you are feeling super confident in your own skin. As you leave, it’s like an emotional high and you want to savor it all. day. long.

At the ordering session and then later at the delivery, you will feel a range of emotions. You get to ride that high of the session day again. I’ve had clients cry because they have never seen themselves this beautiful. It’s an emotional experience but something every woman in the world should feel.

What clients have said about their session

Sarah said

“My husband absolutely loved the album…. He loves the different poses and that I looked natural and myself… I’m super happy he loved them but let’s be honest I literally can’t stop going through them! I’m so happy I did the photo shoot and loved every minute! Hopefully I’ll be able to do it again someday, maybe for a maternity shoot. Thank you so much for your professionalism and just for being a genuinely nice person! You made everything so easy and relaxed. I’ve been telling all my friends they need to do it!

“Tracy made me feel so comfortable in my own skin and the outcome was more than I could have asked for.The ordering session was great, being able to see myself through her lens in a way I had never looked at myself before. For the first time in our relationship, I know how he sees me. I have never felt more beautiful and confident in myself.The best part of this experience was that when the album was given to my boyfriend, he told me that he loved it but the real gift was how it made me feel. He saw the confidence that it gave me and he said I was glowing now.”

“Tracy has a calm, reassuring aura about her that instantly put me at ease. Tracy produce beautiful work. She personifies professionalism. I am extremely grateful for Tracy and her talent. She captured me in ways I hadn’t seen myself before. It has done wonders for my self confidence. After my photo shoot with Tracy, I left her studio feeling BEAUTIFUL AND CONFIDENT- two words that I never thought I’d use to describe myself. I have a BEAUTIFUL album and wall portraits to document this chapter of my life, and I made a friend :)”

The things most are worried about St. Louis Boudoir session and why they avoid scheduling.

Posing. Don’t worry girl. I have you 100% covered. I will pose you from head to toe, including getting the expression out of you that we want for these photos. Not once, but multiple times, I have studied with literally one of the best photographers IN THE WORLD, Jerry Ghionis. Plus I have shot 400+ sessions just since I have been in STL. I know lighting, posing for body types, expression, and how to get it out of you. You’re safe with me.

Feeling comfortable in front of the camera. Honestly, you won’t at first, but like I said above, I have designed specific poses to help you get comfortable super quickly. You’ll be fine after that first set!

Feeling comfortable with no clothes on. My studio is a judgement free zone. And guess what. We all have cellulite, weird scars, and things we are self-conscious about. By the end of the session, you will be walking around the studio topless. I guarantee it.

One last thing.

Remember the client I started this post off with? After her St. Louis Boudoir session, she felt so confident in her photos, she posted them on Instagram! That’s like the ultimate compliment to me.

Here’s what she wrote.

“So a few weeks ago, I did something completely out of my comfort zone. Primarily, this shoot was used as a wedding present for _____ but the other part was for me. I wanted to do this as something that made me proud of my body, the weight I had lost, and the confidence I’ve gained. I recommend this to EVERY SINGLE woman I know. I saw this picture and couldn’t believe it was me. i’ve come a long way in the last year. I love my body. I love the strength it gives me every day to get out of bed. I love how it has changed over time. Thank you @boudoir_by_tracy_lynn for these tasteful pictures and for allowing me to see myself for my worth. St. Louis friends, use her if you need a boost of confidence or need a great gift for your partner.”
