Tell us about yourself!
A little about me: I’m a goofy, smart and caring person. I’m obsessed with cats and coffee! I’m a radiation therapist so I work with people overcoming challenges of skin cancer. I’m just a big kid at hear.
Why did you choose to do a session? What were you most excited about?
I chose to do a session because I was tired of not doing enough for myself. I’m a super caring person and sometimes I forget to take care of myself. I figured why not take a chance? Why not go out of my comfort zone and try something new? I was most excited about seeing myself in a new light, about gaining new self love and discovery. I knew this experience could not only change the way I look at myself, but the way I felt inside too.
What were your thoughts before booking the Boudoir by Billie Experience?
Before booking the experience I struggled with my self image. I didn’t know if I wanted to see photographs of myself. I knew it was out of my comfort zone, but I knew I needed to push myself. My anxiety kept telling me “You can’t do this, it’s not you. You aren’t pretty or skinny enough”. I ignored the voice in my head and pushed the book button without hesitation. Let me tell you I’m so glad I did.
How did you feel when you saw your photographs for the very first time?
When I saw my photographs for the first time my jaw literally dropped to the ground! I was hesitant to look at them in the beginning. As the slideshow started I couldn’t take my eyes off of it, off of me. It made me feel beautiful in more ways than I could have imagined. It touched my soul.
What was your favorite part about the whole experience?
My favorite part of the whole experience was feeling so comfortable! Billie was amazing! She made me feel like we had known each other for years! I felt like I could be myself and that helped me shine.
What do you say to anyone thinking about booking a session?
To anyone thinking about booking a boudoir experience with Billie: What do you have to lose? If we never tried new experiences or went on new and exciting adventures, have we even lived our lives to the fullest? I struggle with anxiety and depression & I was tired of it controlling me. This was one way I could express myself and get out of my shell. I recommend this for anyone who wants to find themselves again, who wants to feel beautiful, or who just wants a new adventure. Looking for a time to book for my next session!
Did a boudoir session with Billie change the way you see yourself?
A boudoir session with Billie completely changed the way I look at myself. After my body image changed over time, I grew a stranger to it. I refused to love myself because I looked different than before. I was heavier, I had stretch marks, I had lost self-confidence. I needed something to lift my spirits and to show me how beautiful I am inside and out. My album is my baby. I look at it all the time, especially on a really bad day. I now know I am beautiful and I learned to love myself again.
