Why did you chose Lux to do a boudoir shoot with?

I had set up a phone consultation. And the person I spoke to on the phone was just so very kind. She me feel very comfortable. I realized if I didn’t book it now there’s a possibility I never would. It was just the right timing.

Why did you do your boudoir shoot?

I have had the most difficult past 2 years. I just finished going through a divorce. After 23 years. It was the most difficult thing I’ve been through. It was very stressful. My mental health suffered terribly. I was always very strong until I wasn’t. I survived some very dark days. Thoughts that crossed my mind was shocking, and now unthinkable. I no longer have self harm thoughts. I did a lot of counseling, and very proud of what have accomplished to make myself better. So I wanted to do this shoot to capture myself. Represent where I was, where I am now and where I’m going. To capture my strength and resilience. I’m stronger than I realized. It’s been a long time since I did something just for me. This was for me. It was exactly what I needed at the time to give me a little extra push. I used this opportunity as one of the first steps of creating a new life journey. Realizing the possibilities that I can create the best life possible moving forward.

What was your favourite part of the session?

The whole day was amazing. Hard to come up with a favorite part. But thinking about it I think it was the confidence that I had gained throughout the photo shoot. To end with being so comfortable with myself to be able to get nudes done. that’s probably my favorite part Driving in that morning. I wasn’t sure I would do it. But so glad I did.

What did doing this shoot do for your self confidence, self worth and self image? Tell me your story.

Oh there truly are no words!, I feel empowered, beautiful, sexy, and very self confident. I didn’t see myself as others see me. I’ve always been told I’m sexy and beautiful. But never could believe it. My self-esteem had been shattered. All my life I struggled with that. I presented myself strong and confident, but the truth is I did not believe in myself. Felt I was never good enough.Making the decision of actually going through with the divorce took a toll on my confidence, my self-esteem and my self-worth. Once I began coming out of the darkness I was in. I knew I needed to do this boudoir shoot. I was so excited when I booked it and it gave me something look forward to. Although I had to reschedule twice because I struggled with myself, and didn’t feel I would accomplish what I wanted to accomplish.

So when I finally did my shoot, it was absolute perfect timing for me. I finally things in my life for coming together. I was ready to move on and start to discover me. From the moment I walked in to do my shoot I was made to feel that I was a queen. It was all about me. As women we don’t always get to be selfish for a day. I was so confident in myself that I was able to get photos done that I didn’t think I would be able to. My nude photos are amazing . Being able to be comfortable enough and doing it is very empowering.

I am 51 years old and for the first of my life I can see my sexiness and beauty. This whole experience has given me confidence and has empowered me in ways I did not expect.

Looking at my pictures, I can actually see myself as others do. I absolutely loved this whole experience. I cannot wait to do it again.

Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different?

Yes, it was what I expected plus beyond my expectations. It was the most empowering self-confident self-esteem thing I’ve ever done for myself. I actually see myself as beautiful, sexy and confident. I’ve never felt so good about myself.

What was the best part of your experience? Would you change anything?

Being able to just be me. I was able to bring out the lost girl inside. The constant encouragement and positive energy I felt all day was amazing. I love my music and I was able to play my own and really got into my zone. I wouldn’t change anything.

What advice do you have for others getting their boudoir pictures taken?

My advice I would give her any and every woman. Embrace your body. We all have flaws. Flabby parts we don’t like. Stretch marks we like to hide. But our bodies tell a story. Be kind to yourself. We are the hardest critics on ourselves. We are all beautiful, and as a woman accomplish some pretty amazing things. We produce other humans. We are caregivers. And a common story I hear from women as we forget about ourselves. It’s hard for us to make ourselves priority. Make yourself a priority for at least one day. Let your hair down be free be the person that’s inside of us. Do a shoot for no one else but yourself. It’s an amazing experience.

A huge thank you to this amazing Lux babe for sharing her experience 💜
