San Diego Boudoir Photographer | Krystal

1. WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE RACHAEL MARIE BOUDOIR? 

After Rachael did our Engagement photos, I just knew I wanted her to do my Boudoir photos. She was just so easy to talk to and made you feel so comfortable. I had many fears about doing a Boudoir session, but Rachael really did make me feel at ease about doing one. She made me feel like we had been friends for years and that’s definitely what I needed in a Boudoir Photographer. And I mean, you could tell from her other photos that she knew what the heck she was doing and I definitely wanted that to.

2. DID YOU HAVE ANY FEARS ABOUT DOING A BOUDOIR SESSION?

Absolutely! Before my engagement photos, I had never had professional photos taken of myself before. I always felt so awkward in front of the camera. Not to mention being so exposed in front of someone you barely know, I was so afraid I’d not know what to do and my pictures would come out terrible. And of course all the fears I had about the way my body looked! But Rachael knew exactly what to do and say to me to make me feel so comfortable and those fears disappeared pretty fast after the session started. 

3. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE?

 Just having a whole day focused on me! Getting all dolled up with hair and makeup. Sipping on Mimosas, laughing and just having a good time while I got ready. Then getting to get dressed in different sexy outfits and really embracing my beauty! So... the whole damn day was my favorite part! 

4. HOW WAS THE SESSION DIFFERENT THAN WHAT YOU ORIGINALLY THOUGHT?  

I really thought I was going to be super nervous and just awkward during my session. Some woman just have that sexy way about them and it just flows out in the pictures, that’s just not me! Im so awkward haha. But Rachael really knew how to bring that out in me and helped me every step of the way! The whole experience just blew all the expectations I had out of the water, but in the best way possible. It was amazing! 

5. HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU SAW YOUR PHOTOS?

 I was blown away! Like damn that’s really me? And getting to see my Husbands reaction, I remember him telling me, “I think you finally see just how much beauty I see in you everyday”. Those words meant the world to me. Because he’s right, I always am so hard on myself and getting to do this and see myself in this whole new way was definitely what I needed! I felt down right SEXY!!! 

6. DID ANYTHING CHANGE ABOUT THE WAY YOU SEE YOUR OWN BEAUTY BECAUSE OF THE SESSION? 

Like most woman, I’m my biggest critic. I’m not skinny enough, I need to lose more weight, I need to do more squats to make my butt bigger and on and on! I feel like most woman don’t take the time to look at yourself and appreciate all the beautiful features we do have. It’s always negative and I’m so guilty of this! So getting to finally see my pictures... I was blown away! Like damn girl, look at you! I absolutely felt so beautiful! I hadn’t felt that way about myself in a long time!! It really was an eye opener and the boost of self esteem that i most definitely needed!! I could never thank Rachael enough for capturing my beauty like she did! 

7. ANY ADVICE FOR WOMEN INTERESTED IN THEIR OWN BOUDOIR SESSION? 

JUST DO IT!!! Don’t wait. You will be so glad you did, even if you don’t think your body is perfect. Getting to feel sexy and all dolled up is one of the best things you’ll do for yourself and seeing the pictures..... you’ll see yourself in a whole new way. Like damn, that’s really me and Im Freakin GORGEOUS just the way I am!!!
