It's time for our next Featured Adore Girl!
Miss C came to us for a shoot in July to celebrate how far she has come in her weight loss journey.
The session ended up being so much more than that. Courtney helped show Miss C how far she has come and how beautiful she is today.
A little background on Miss C.
How old are you, if you don't mind us asking? Totally optional!
Are you from Nashville? If not, where are you from?
Yes, I'm from the Nashville area.
Are you married?
No, but I have a boyfriend and we've been dating for close to four years.
Do you have kiddos?
I don't have any children but I have the sweetest dog named Cece.
What do you do for a living?
I'm a General Manager for a local chain called Twice Daily.
Now let's talk about your shoot!
Have you ever had a boudoir session before?
No. This was definitely a first for me.
Why did you decide to have a boudoir session?
I decided to have this session to celebrate my weight loss. Before I started losing weight pictures of me were few and far between. Once I got close to my goal weight, I decided that I needed to celebrate by having my own shoot.
Has your session impacted you in a way you weren't expecting? If so, how?
My session had an unforseen impact on me. I expected to receive high quality images of myself in flattering lighting and poses. What I did not expect was how truly beautiful I felt when I looked at my images. My brain is still hardwired to see the old 320 pound woman that I used to be. The Adore Girls helped me to see myself as I am now and I can not thank them enough for that.
Did the session differ from what you were expecting?
Going into the session I was a bundle of nerves. I tried to read any and all advice on having a boudoir photo shoot that I could get my hands on. I read the suggestions on the TAG website at least 10 times to try to reduce the butterflies I was having. But, once I walked in the door, I felt immediately welcomed and at ease. I was in front of other people in next to nothing and I didn't care. These ladies were making me laugh throughout my session and I was so relaxed that I forgot why I was so nervous in the first place.
Did you have your session to create a gift? If so, what was it for?
I had my session as a gift to myself. It was to show me how far I've come in my journey to be a healthier, happier person. But I would be lying if I said it wasn't a little bit for my boyfriend as well.
We would love to hear about how you gave the gift and their reaction if you don't mind sharing!
My reaction was disbelief. I could not believe that beautiful woman in the pictures was me.
My boyfriend loved the pictures! When I gave him the album I asked him if he knew his girlfriend could be that hot. He told me that he always knew I was that hot but the difference is that now I know it too.
If you could talk straight to another woman who is thinking about doing a session, what would you tell her?
Do it! I can not tell you how wonderful having a session is for your self esteem. This session has brought my confidence miles from where it was before I had it done. Say yes to doing something amazing for yourself. I promise that you won't regret it.
Now let's have a look at her gorgeous session!
Miss C you were AH-MAZING!!!
Stay tuned for the next Featured Adore Girl!
