What made you choose Belle Allée Photography for your session?
My friend Leah recommended it and I saw some of her pictures she had done with them and fell in love!
What (if anything) were you nervous about BEFORE your session?
I was nervous about basically being naked in public. I was nervous that all my worries about not looking attractive would be confirmed, as I never liked pictures of myself.
Tell us a little about your experience during the shoot. What were your favorite parts? How was it different from your expectations? How did you feel before, during, and after?
I loved the session. Even before seeing the final products, I was feeling beautiful because of the feedback from Alyssa and Zach. I was a little worried it would be weird having a man/couple taking such sexy pictures but it was honestly just super fun! I was feeling a little nervous before, but during I was just having a blast, and after I was feeling physically exhausted but emotionally confident and grateful.
How do you feel now that your session is over?
I’m feeling so grateful for the opportunity. I’ve noticed more self-confidence and better body image. I’m amazed by the photos. I love showing them off because I never imagined I could look so sexy and confident.
Would you recommend Belle Allée Photography to others?
ABSOLUTELY. If you want to find increased self-confidence and self-acceptance, while hanging our with a super cool couple, definitely do this.
If you could tell someone who is thinking about doing their own boudoir session one thing, what would it be?
Nike that shit. Just do it. Not only will you have fun and feel good during the shoot, but also, when you see the finished products, you will not regret it. Alyssa and Zach have such a gift for emphasizing the most beautiful parts of you, physically and emotionally. They helped me tap into my confidence during the shoot, and it showed in the photos. If you’re even thinking about it, that’s the sign that you need to do it.
