Babe of the Week / Ericka
Q: Why did you choose to do a Boudoir Session?
A: I’ve always seen so many amazing pictures from boudoir shoots that made me wonder if I could ever look like that. I am very self-conscious about my physical appearance, so I never thought I could do it. While I was on vacation this summer, I was scrolling through Facebook and an ad for a boudoir studio popped up and it really made me think about doing it when I got home. So I did my research, found Billie’s studio and it all went from there. It was mostly for me, but the potential for surprise gifts were definitely a plus! 😉
Q: What were your thoughts before booking the Boudoir by Billie Experience?
A: I was terrified. On the one hand I thought “wow this is fantastic, I can totally do this,” and on the other I thought “what am I doing?! I’m not pretty enough for this???” I hovered on the booking page for weeks. Eventually I found the VIP group on Facebook and saw how much love, empowerment, and acceptance there was - it was incredible. That’s when I decided to just book it.
Q: How did you feel BEFORE your session V.S. how you felt DURING / AFTER the Experience?
A: Nervous does not even begin to cut it. In the weeks leading up to it I kept thinking I needed to make myself “better” before I got there. I thought I needed to lose weight, tone up, get a haircut, re-dye my hair…a lot of silly things that were totally unnecessary. I was going to be me no matter what, so there was no reason to try and change myself. The day of, I was sitting in my car outside the studio wondering if I could even do it. But the second I walked into the studio nerves just disappeared. There was an instant feeling of comfort the moment we said hi. After it was all over, I got in the car, texted one of my friends and said “13/10, would TOTALLY do that again!”
Q: How did you feel when you saw your photographs for the very first time?
A: I saw a few shots in the middle of our shoot and I think at some point I looked at Billie, said “NO WAY YOU JUST TOOK THAT. We can print this right now and I’ll be happy.” When I finally saw my full gallery, I was floored - absolutely speechless. I could not believe that those were photos of ME. I couldn’t stop looking at them.
Q: What was your favorite part about the whole EXPERIENCE?
A: Honestly? The fact that I forgot what I was doing there in the first place. Nothing felt like I thought it would. There was nothing awkward about it and I wasn’t thinking about the fact that I was doing something so far outside my comfort zone. I had a blast and it just felt like I was hanging out with the girls. I laughed a lot more than I thought I would and I felt like I was on top of the world.
Q: Did a boudoir session with Billie change the way you see yourself?
A: Yes - a thousand times yes! I have always been so critical of myself and the way I look – but my session and the awesome photos I got out of it really made me forget about all of that. It made me wonder why I was so hard on myself in the first place. Billie made me feel like an ABSOLUTE QUEEN the whole way through and I cannot even put into words how amazing that felt.
Q: What do you say to anyone thinking about booking a session?
A: Booking your session is literally the HARDEST part of the entire experience. So if not now, when? Just go for it! You are perfect the way you are, and if you don’t believe it – the proof is in the photos!
