I asked Melanie to tell me how she felt about her boudoir experience with me.
Her response was amazing. I am so thankful she decided to do this. I am thankful I got to be her photographer. And I a thankful she decided to be so candid about her boudoir experience.
“I went into my boudoir session pretty nervous.
I am pretty shy and awkward, and have never had a lot of self confidence. I joked with Amy about how I have never shared a photo of myself without using Photoshop to fix all the things that I saw as flaws.
Well the nerves went away pretty quickly as Amy made me feel totally comfortable. I walked away taller, more confident, powerful and sexy.
And then I saw the images!
Seriously the first time I’ve looked at photos of myself that somebody else took and didn’t cringe. I couldn’t believe the sexy goddess on the screen was actually me!
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 8 years ago. Since then, the debilitating pain and fatigue, the medication side effects, the loss of my career and independence, and the major medication induced weight gains have steadily chipped away at my sense of self worth.
I have finally arrived at a place where I accept who I am and I realize I am still a valuable person despite my limitations.
This session was like the icing on the cake, allowing me to see myself and say wow, I look amazing even after everything I’ve been through.
