I am going through a huge change in my life with being a mom to a toddler and finally coming into my own. I have gone through a huge transformation in my life in almost all ways. I needed it, for me. I wanted to look at my body as a new mom and enjoy it for the first time. I feel like I do now. I am comfortable in my skin and am not ashamed to cover up my body. I feel way more comfortable than I did in my 20's and wanted to show that mom's can be sexy too.

My session was better than I was expecting! I also feel like I've made friends with all the wonderful ladies at The Adore Girls. I would tell any lady out there thinking of having a session with The Adore Girls to stop thinking and start doing. Stop waiting for tomorrow..stop waiting to lose 20 pounds..stop saying "maybe sometime I will do this for myself." You're worth it and more beautiful than you imagine and these ladies will make you a damn believer.

I originally wanted to do the shoot for my husband for a wedding gift, but I realized as the process went along that it was more for me. Turning 40, being a mom, getting remarried and wanting to feel comfortable and beautiful. My husband loves the photos and is so proud, but I think in the end I did them for me. I am so proud of myself no matter what size or age.
Miss P -
This was something I wanted to do for myself as I'm fast approaching turning the big 5-0.
I was a complete nervous wreck. I don't consider myself sexy. More of a nerdy dork. I was amazed at how comfortable I felt and the level of sexiness that you guys were able to pull out of me.
Don't even second guess yourself for one minute. The Adore Girls are such a wonderful team and make every second of your shoot a complete blast. The minute you walk in the door it's almost like a fantasy land. You will leave feeling like a supermodel!
Miss S -
I could not believe the shots were of ME!
My husband really liked the gift but said, "I already knew you were beautiful, but I'm glad you can see what I see everyday."
it is a great gift but I think it did more for me. I was so happy and proud of the photos. They were down so tastefully, artistically and personal. It was not "corny" or "glamour shot-y" is that a word? Very high quality and a beautiful experience!

My session helped me see that I am able to feel sexy and confident. Once I saw the final images I found that I had a new found sense of who I am as a woman. I also found that I am now carrying myself in a much more confident manner.
Do not hesitate, do not listen to your inner voice of self doubt. It will be one of the best things you will do for you!!!
The ladies at The Adore Girls know how to make you feel comfortable and at ease with whole the process. You will come out of your session with a new sense of confidence. They are an amazing group of women and you will not regret taking the plunge and doing a session. It will be everything you could want and more!!! I can't wait to do a 2nd session.
Miss J -
Seeing the pictures, even during the session, I realized I was so focused on things that I didn't love about myself that I didn't realize some of the things that were amazing (like my legs lol). my session was one of my best life experiences. I would tell anyone considering a session to do it you won't regret it!
Miss C -
I decided to do another shoot, less than a year after my 1st one, for me. To remind myself who I am, and why I like me and gain some of my confidence and ego back (ego in a good way not cocky). I want to remember this time in my life, where I feel completely out of control, but also so steadfast in my decisions being for me and MY happiness. I know that can come off as selfish, but being selfish sometimes is a good thing, especially when it involves you being happy.
Miss L -
First let me mention the surprise for ME! When Courtney revealed the debut images to me, I was surprised to move through so many emotions: I was first grasped by the perfect music that was put to the images, then I squealed w delight at the created images. (I recognized the poses but didn't realize what classy creations would result). I was then impressed by the sexy lady I saw .....ME!! I knew that my Lover would be thrilled with such a personal collection. And so yes.... (I'm sorry Courtney), I finally just cried a little by the end of the debut.
Miss K -
The session gave me even more confidence than I was expecting. It made me want to continue my new healthy lifestyle. I even had the courage to take a new career path and I owe that extra boost to my session. Anytime I'm having a bad day, I glance through the photos on my app to remind myself that anything is possible.
A session will affect your whole outlook on life. For me, it was about finding the inner strength and motivation to accomplish a real-time goal that would make me feel better physically and mentally.
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 experience 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 women. 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!
Miss M -
I really didn't know what to expect from the session. I've never been a very shy person about my body, but I did have a little nervousness about being completely nude for some pictures. But after about one second of walking into the house, I was completely comfortable. All of the ladies make you feel so at ease!
DO IT!! Don't question yourself if it is something you have considered. There's no need to wait for a "better time" or "maybe later". Do it for yourself if nothing else!! All women deserve to feel sexy and beautiful!!
Miss K -
My session helped me see that I am capable of being sexy and confident, and it made me realize that it's okay to feel good about myself and not feel bad about it. After I saw my pictures I definitely held my head a llittle higher and carried myself in a more confident way.
I keep saying that I think it's something that every woman needs to experience. The Adore Gorls do an amazing job at making you feel comfortable in your own skin and once you see yourself on the back of that camera during your session, you feel an amazing boost of confidence. It's unreal. Ignore any excuse you are coming up with and just do it. You won't regret it at all.
Miss M -
I wanted to feel confident and empowered by myself and my body. And the body that I had right now. My session gave me the confidence that I had hoped for and it made me feel that I can be sexy too! I felt more beautiful that day than I had before.
Don't wait! I was hesitate at first because I had never done anything like it and didn't feel like I had the body type or face for it. I was so wrong and I'm thrilled that I did it. From the time I got there until the end of the shoot, I had such a wonderful experience. Everyone makes you feel so comfortable and beautiful and they want you to have fun! Don't be afraid to spend the money because the outcome is worth it. Seeing how beautiful you are and how you felt that day through the pictures is so worth it! (and there's also payment plans!)
Miss N -
Just got home from my AH-Mazing image debut this afternoon....I must say my first shoot a year ago was awesome and I kicked myself for not having done it sooner, BUT this one has blown that one away. Jamie and Courtney are so talented and easy to work with....it is just ridiculous how quickly they can make you feel comfortable running around in just a bra and panties lol. The new videos that Courtney does while Jamie is catching pictures is such a great addition too.
For those of you that have been stalking these ladies for some time (trust me I stalked them for 2 years before I finally scheduled my first shoot), you NEED to give them a call and schedule a consultation. Even if you don't have a significant other to give the pictures to, you will be surprised how doing it for yourself will help your self confidence whether you are a size 2 or size 22.
Give them a call and release your "Adore Girl"!
Miss. C -
I like to think I'm a pretty confident person and that I am comfortable in my own skin, even not being a size 2. Nudity and being naked have never bothered me so I wasn't even nervous about taking my clothes off in front of 'strangers,' but when I saw my photos I couldn't believe the woman in the photos was me. The photo shoot and photos have just cemented the fact that I am beautiful and sexy, and curves are hot and man I got lucky I have them. I still look at them and think man Courtney you look amazing, and that is you!
I had no expectations going into the session, but Jamie and her team made it so much fun. I mean where else can a girl be laying on the floor in bra and panties with two other women, who you just met, not even 2 feet in front of you and just laugh and feel like you've known them for years? Only with the Adore Girls. If you want a confidence boost, or to show off, or to feel pretty, and sexy, or for your partner, or to push your own comfort, just do it. The Adore Girls is where you want to be to feel all of those things and more. I honestly cannot say enough good things about my experience.
Do it. Do it now. It doesn't have to be for a significant other, you can just do it for you. In fact I strongly encourage every woman to do this for herself at least once. It made me feel completely different, confident and beautiful. And the Adore Girls are so nice, and give you tons of direction, and make you feel so comfortable.
Miss C -
I almost feel this is a right of passage for women. If your married, pregnant, post baby, dating, single, 80, lol it doesn't matter, you HAVE TO DO THIS. I never would have thought standing in front of camera in lingerie or naked would bring my confidence up so much but it did! Its an amazing feeling to see yourself look like you came out of a magazine, and I wouldn't change anything about it. Ladies, its worth every single dime I promise. Every girl deserves a chance to release her inner sexy and this is the way to do it, especially with the ADORE GIRLS on your side!
Miss H -
I am from southern Mississippi and had looked for photographers for weeks, the moment Courtney answered the phone, I knew they were "the one". I felt like I had known her for years just from a phone call. This was truly an empowering experience for me. I feel so confident, and beautiful, and just SEXY. I would have driven 800 miles to get to these girls because IT'S WORTH IT!!! Every woman should do this. The Adore Girls team are hero's with cameras. This was a dream come true. Literally!! ✔ on the bucket list.
Miss A -
Let me preface this with two things…First, I have never been the type to want to be immortalized in my unmentionables (i.e., I never thought I would want to get photographed in my undies before). It wasn't something that I had been dying to do all my life. Second, I am a mom of 4 who is not altogether comfortable with her body and who consistently has some self-love issues.
That being said, let me tell you why you (yes, YOU) should consider boudoir photography…
Recently I had a shoot with The Adore Girls in Nashville and it was honestly the most liberating experience of my life. I was nervous and apprehensive going into it.
I've never been completely comfortable with my body, and even less so now that I am almost to 30 and have stretch marks and scars and even some lovely VEINS that mark who I am and where I've been throughout the past 28 years.
I kept having the thought in my head that these people who would see me half-naked would be completely grossed out and would be disappointed that they could not make me look decent in any photos.
Boy, was I wrong.
I got to spend a few hours with amazing people who, very honestly and sincerely, thought that I looked beautiful, and did everything they could to make sure that I knew it. And not only KNEW it, but FELT it, too. Nobody ever once looked at me and said, "Oh, I sure wish you were thinner," or "Wow, those stretch marks really take away from this photo."
What I heard instead was, "Oh, you have a killer body!" and "You look so hot in that pose, for real!" I could NOT believe my ears. And really, that was all it took for me to suddenly realize this:
I'm freakin' HOT!
It doesn't matter about size or scars or weight or anything. What matters is how you FEEL. And I have never been more amazed at how comfortable I could be with myself.
So. If you can swing it, you should totally consider boudoir photography because:
1. You get to be comfortable in your own body, even if you were already.
2. Lots of people complimenting you and telling you how hot you look!
3. Did I mention the wonders it does for your self-esteem?
4. It's an excuse to buy really cute lingerie.
5. Again — what better way to encourage self-love?
Oh and if you're wondering, "But what will I actually DO with the boudoir photos?," Your spouse/significant other/soon to be husband will have an answer for that.
I've spent most of my life in the company of books. My closest friends lived in the pages. I've never been extroverted or had much self-confidence. I was bullied constantly as a child because I was never considered pretty. The first time I sat in front of the camera with The Adore Girls, all of my insecurities melted away. It was a liberating experience. For the first time, I not only felt pretty, I felt GORGEOUS. It was a huge step for me. Since then, I've posed for them on two more occasions. And, each time, my self-confidence has only grown. I can never repay these ladies for opening my eyes to the fact that I am a beautiful woman. I've realized I don't need to be beautiful for anyone else. I am beautiful for me.
Love and smooches,
Miss L -
Sooooo.....This is a call to any and ALL ladies even thinking about doing a shoot with The AAHHHHHMAZING Adore Girls, let me just tell you....I won the starter package in a Facebook give away, I NEVER win anything....already scored!! With that being said, I would have NEVER thought for a millisecond that I would actually even turn my head at booking this on my own. But since I won it...how could I not?? After thinking about it for days, I decided to upgrade to the Dream Session....seriously, me??? WTH, am I nuts?? I don't know how to pull off sexy!!!! I had a pretty good idea what I was in for, but, did they know what THEY were in for??? They had a lot of work ahead of them with this awkward tom-boy!! I rarely dip my toes in the girly pool! I didn't know what to take to wear, what to buy...completely clueless! I just threw together what I thought I could pull off (with a little help from my best friend) and headed to the studio. First stop....hair and make up with the sweet, talented and beautiful Sarah!!! Good conversation along with a couple of mimosas, made a great start to a super fun day! When she was done....oh LAWD when she was done!!! She is a magician!! I was ready!!! I had the lovely Courtney for the day...or should I say she had me!! I knew what I was getting myself into but I never thought it would be so easy!!! I knew how much fun it was going to be but I never thought there was "that" girl in there!!! These ladies have a way of truly showing you that you DESERVE to feel beautiful! You DESERVE to know how sexy you are! You DESERVE to be completely comfortable in your OWN skin and OWN IT!!!! I walked in an awkward tom-boy but walked out a bad-ass!! Thank you ladies!! -"Today you are you. That is truer than true. There is no one alive that is you-er than you!" Dr. Seuss
What a beautiful experience! My husband surprised me with this photography session for my birthday. I have to say I was very skeptical at first because I just wan't where I wanted to be physically. "What on Earth is he thinking!?" I thought to myself...but he seemed really excited about the gift he had chosen, so I went with the mindset of making the best of the experience.
This turned out to be one of the best gifts I have ever received! The staff at "The Adore Girls" are phenomenal! They are down to Earth with great personalities. They were also the consummate professionals, and were fun to work with! This is definitely an experience that every woman should have at least once. Jamie, thank you for making my session so memorable and fun! I had the best time. You helped me feel beautiful, completely comfortable, and like a movie star. The photos you took are amazing! When my husband saw the pictures he said "You're beautiful and I wanted you to see yourself the way I see you."
Wow!! What a priceless memory.
