Interview with Miss K
Why did you decide to do a boudoir session?
It was coming up to my ten year anniversary, partner's birthday, our wedding, I've been attending the gym regularly for the last six months and it's something I've always wanted to do in my "middle age" for posterity.
What made you decide to hire our studio for your photoshoot?
The professional response and your own studios. Other photographers required hiring a hotel room or had responses that were "cute" (colors, lots of fonts) but not professional. The costs were clear up front. I appreciated the attachment sent beforehand that answered a lot of questions (finding lingerie in Sydney is tough!) and my expectations were clear going in.
How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?
Very excited leading up to it but very nervous going in on the day. Looking back, I could barely hold a conversation with Chris while getting my make-up done.
Now that you've had your own photo shoot, how was it?
Excellent. I mean, personally, I cringed through the whole thing because it was just so out of character for me and I'd have trouble hyping myself to do it again because it was hard work (thank you for all the reminders to arch my back and breath through my mouth). But really excellent. Chris was professional the whole time, I felt like I was in a safe space, thank God that air-con was blasting because I was so nervous, I trusted his technique and really, really appreciated his guidance as I had no idea what I was doing. I'm sure it was a lot of work for him too so all credit to his efforts. I also appreciated seeing a range of photos beforehand (sweet to more provocative) so I knew me getting naked wasn't outside Chris' comfort zone.
What would you say to someone considering doing a boudoir shoot?
Absolutely do it. I've been telling my friends all week it was one of the most empowering things I think I've done as an adult and I've walked taller since. It was amazing to see myself in such a beautiful light and I'll treasure these photos for the rest of my life.
