"I wanted to celebrate me..."-Miss D

blue lingerie

The Adore Girls' recently had a little Q and A with Miss D about her experience becoming an Adore Girl and this is what she had to say:

TAG: How old are you, if you don't mind us asking? Totally optional!

Miss D: 34

TAG: What do you do for a living?

Miss D: Emergency Room Nurse

TAG: Why did you decide to have a boudoir session?

Miss D: I wanted to celebrate myself for who I am and who I have become over the past many years. I have always taken care of other people, professionally and personally. I decided that I wanted to do something special for myself! Knowing that it has been on my bucket list for many years, I figured "its now or never!"

TAG: Has your session impacted you in a way you weren't expecting? If so, how?

Miss D: My session has helped me in ways that I never thought it would. It provided me with a sense of confidence that I have not experienced in over 10+ years. Struggling with my weight since my teenage years, I had forgotten what it felt like to be considered beautiful and sexy. Being significantly overweight, I would always look in the mirror and try to remind myself that I am an attractive woman. Since I have had my session, I can look at myself in the mirror and BELIEVE it! It is as if, I had to see myself through someone else's eyes to believe it!

TAG: Did the session differ from what you were expecting?

Miss D: Yes, the session differed from what I was expecting. Only because I expected to be so nervous that I would not relax enough to enjoy myself and celebrate me being me. About 10 minutes into the shoot (and this was without mimosas), I noticed how much fun I was having and I found myself laughing before I even realized I was! (This says a lot about how comfortable the environment, and how relaxed Jamie and Courtney made me feel, being that I am a rather quiet, shy, soft spoken women!)

TAG: Why did you choose to have a boudoir session? For yourself or to create a gift?

Miss D: I chose a boudoir session for myself, and only myself! Being a size 28 for most of my adult life, I wanted to honor myself with the qualities that I have been given. I wanted to have a celebration of me, not just my body, but everything about me!

TAG: If you could talk straight to another woman who is thinking about having a session, what would you tell her?

Miss D: If you have ever considered doing this, do it for you! For all the women that are out there that have always thought about it, your size is just a number. It does not define what is sexy and what is not! You do not have to wait to lose 10 or 20 more pounds to be beautiful. Every women is attractive in her own way. Beauty comes in many different shapes and sizes. You do not have to be a size 6 or 8, or even a size 18... let your beauty that is in your mind, heart, and soul come out and shine though! The most beautiful thing you can do is to be yourself and love yourself for who you are! None of us are made to be the same, so why not be proud of who you are!

Miss D was a pleasure to have in The Adore Girls Studio and we couldn't agree more with her message!  Everyone woman does deserve to feel beautiful, sexy and confident.  We are all different and we should celebrate that!  Thanks to Miss D for sharing with us her Adore Girl Story!

The Adore Girls pride themselves on providing an amazing experience from beginning to end. One of the most integral parts of becoming an official Adore Girl is the styling to get our girls photoshoot-ready. We have a professional team of artists that work exclusively with us in our studio. Having your hair and makeup done for your dream shoot by one of our talented artists is just icing on the cake. When you arrive for your session at The Adore Girls studio is when the real fun begins. After going through your wardrobe with Jamie or Courtney and choosing the best outfits for your session, you will then hop into our hair and makeup chair. We always ask if you would like a beverage, mimosas are one of our favorite cocktails so we keep those stocked in the studio. Perhaps a little bubbly isn’t your thing, we also provide coffee or water to keep you comfortable too. Most of our girls spend around one hour in our hair and makeup artist’s hands. Our artist will talk colors and styles with you to be sure that you come out looking like the most glamour-esque version you have ever seen of yourself.

Everyone on our team has had her own shoot and understands that you may be a little nervous when you get here. One thing that we have found very useful is to put ourselves in your shoes by getting our whole team on the other side of the lens. This way any nerves or inhibitions someone may have, anyone on our team can talk about their own shoots and how it made them feel, also sharing tips and tricks to help relax you. Let’s meet our hair and makeup team shall we?

Sarah Kay is our house artist. She has been with us since 2013. Sarah has proven herself time and time again, creating the boudoir look flawlessly.  Sarah seems to know every shade and color that blends perfectly with each individual Adore Girl that sits in her chair. She has also been on the other side of the camera for us more than once. Sarah loves what she does as an artist and she loves what boudoir has done for her self-esteem and feels strongly that every woman should experience it for herself. Sarah also has an exceptional eye for style and a steal. Sarah is also available for wedding styling.

Elisa is an associate hair and makeup artist and has now been dolling up Adore Girls for a little over a year. She has been a professional makeup artist for five years and is also certified in lash extensions. We met Elisa when she came to the studio as a client and we soon found out that she was an artist too. After her first shoot with us, we brought her aboard to join our team and haven’t looked back since. Elisa is truly passionate about what she does as an artist. She loves helping women feel beautiful and transforming women through hair and makeup perfectly for their very own shoot. Elisa is also loves to create makeup tutorials on her EisEverything YouTube Channel (we love watching them too). When Elisa isn’t at the studio or making youtube tutorials she likes to spend her time at the gym, “I like to get back to the basics and sweat it out a little, I’m not a glamour girl 24/7.” Elisa is available for editorial, music shoots and also wedding styling too.

We are also pleased to welcome our latest edition to our team, Nicki. Nicki hasn’t had her own boudoir shoot yet, but she is in our books and we can’t wait to share the experience with her. She came in for interview and blew us away with her work. Nicki has been a professional hair and makeup artist for the Adore Girls since February. She worked for Advantage Modeling after graduating from Empire Beauty School in 2012. Nicki is also a hair and make up artist for weddings and editorial shoots as well. You can find her portfolio here.

We believe that it’s important that you love your hair and makeup completely before beginning your session. We will snap a few images at the start of your head shots to make sure that you are happy with how it looks on camera. From start to finish we have you covered.

Adore Girl Tip:  If you are a bride-to-be planning for a boudoir shoot of your own consider this;    It has become common practice that our brides love their hair and makeup so much in the studio that they then book one of our artist’s for their wedding.  Just something to think about.  Save yourself the time and cost of a trial run.  Two birds, one stone.

WHAT TO WEAR?

There is no text book definition of what to wear for Bridal Boudoir. It doesn't have to be all white or just panties and your veil, although that works too!  If you choose the dream session you will get 4 wardrobe changes. Anything that makes you feel sexy and confident is perfect. Many girls include something that represents him; like his favorite lingerie you wear, an old tshirt of his, a tie, or even just his favorite color. One the house favorites are our signature sheet shots. We wrap you in one of our soft white cotton sheets and that is one wardrobe change. The sheets shots are classic and beautiful with endless possibilities for posing. We have you covered for heels too! We have an endless supply of sexy pumps to go with any outfit. We do suggest bringing your wedding shoes too!

Images are purchased separately. Purchase 15 or more images and receive our complimentary mobile gallery app and your purchased images printed in an album.  Click here to learn more. You can now add video too!

WHO WILL TAKE MY PICTURES?

We are an all female staff. So have no fear! From the beginning to the end of your experience you will only be with women. From our hair and makeup artists, to our photographers and shoot assistant, we are all women who have been on both sides of the camera. We understand boudoir and the nerves that come along with it. We are Nashville's premiere boudoir photography studio, from your session to designing your album, boudoir is what we do, book with the best in the biz. Meet our staff here.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

The session itself takes about 3-4 hours. You will spend a little time with your photographer before getting into hair and make up to discuss your wardrobe options and what you want to get out of your session. From there you will spend approximately 1 hour in hair and makeup getting all dolled up! The photoshoot is then 1-2 hours spent on all of our different sets and your wardrobe changes. After your session is complete we will schedule your upcoming image debut. Your image debut is when you will pick your favorite edited images 1-2 weeks after your shoot and place your order. **We recommend all sessions are held at least 4-6 weeks prior to the date that you need your images and product in hand**

WHAT TO EXPECT?

You can expect to have an experience you will never forget. You will feel sexy and beautiful. You will have fun, we share lots of laughs in our studio too.  Imagine sharing your images with your groom on your honeymoon as an extra spicy gift! He will love it and so will you! Many of our girls have sessions for more than one reason. You may be coming in to make the ultimate sexy gift for him, but this is also a time in your life you never want to forget.
