My husband and I are newly empty-nesters and realized that we have very few photos capturing our 14+ years together. After blending our families together and raising four teens, there never seemed to be enough time, money, or inspiration. I was nervous leading up to the session because I feel sassy on the inside but have always been shy or fearful of letting that out- afraid that it would not represent well or that "strutting" it would make me seem vain or conceited. My husband was nervous too because he isn't a smiling guy.
Carmen made us feel so comfortable and she helped us pose in ways that didn't require a smile. Her vocal prompts to elicit facial expressions and "eye expressions" really helped me. When our photos were revealed to us, we were both so thrilled. Carmen accentuated the positive aspects of our bodies and edited the photos in such a way that everything seemed flawless. My husband was so encouraged, that he immediate said, "I can do better next time, please book it again for next spring"- so we have!
I think that all women should do a boudoir session, it isn't even about feeling sexy- its artistic and seeing yourself the way that Carmen does makes you feel strong and powerful. The world does do much to drive out our positive images and self esteem- we forget who God created us to be- fearfully and wonderfully made - in His image. It feels really good to be reminded of that and to walk in the confidence that Carmen's photos can give you.
I was nervous to do this type of shoot as it was out of my comfort zone, initially, but that soon went away. It started with the makeup, which left me with such a great feeling. I usually do not wear makeup but the stylist really hit it out the park and I looked FANTASTIC! This shoot started out as more of a gift for my husband but it eventually turned into a great SELF-EMPOWERING experience that left me feeling super sexy and confident about me and my body. Carmen is a true photographer, very professional in her craft and always ensures you are having fun but also making the best of your time and money. I can't wait to do another shoot with her and recommend anyone looking for any type of photo shoot, not just boudoir, give Carmen a call you will be completely happy with the outcome!
