how a boudoir session changed my life | SEBASTIAN, FLORIDA BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER

Having met hundreds of women and spoken about boudoir, I can talk until I’m blue in the face about how doing a session is LIFE CHANGING. However, some personal testimonies are too good not to share and when clients have a specific story to tell, I never hesitate to post it. This experience WILL change you. And if you don’t believe me, keep reading.


Where do I begin? I’m 31 years old and just recently married the most wonderful man in December. My whole life is about him. I’m a full time hardworking nurse that requires late hours and hardly any time for me.

I forget about me sometimes.

A few months back, I came across a FB post for Nichole Marie Boudoir. I thought to myself, how many times have I tried to take a sexy pic of myself on my phone to send to my husband midday at the office?? Ha! Ridiculous.

I don’t ever want him to forget what he has at home.

Sooo I figured, what a great birthday gift for him, to see me glammed up and posing for him. I signed up! And then the price shock.

I’m getting naked and letting someone take racy pictures of me! Who am I??

The day came for the shoot. (TMI) I’m from Port Saint Lucie and on my way to the studio I stopped 3 times to use the bathroom, I was so nervous. I sat in the car for 30 minutes contemplating going through with it. I called my mommy and she is the one who told me to get out of the car and go!

As soon as I walked in, I was even more nervous!! I sat down in the chair for the ultimate make up and hair session, sipping my bubbly! The time came to put the first laced up body suit on. I tried to go to the bathroom to change.

All of a sudden, this feeling of power came over me and I stripped right down there in the hallway to put the most revealing outfit on! I was in! No turning back now.

Courtney directed me to the dimly lit room and directed me to slide down the wall! What??? I’m almost 200lbs in a black lace body suit and you want me to do what? 

After that was a blur. I didn’t have time to think about how nervous I was, Courtney and Nicole would make little comments how bomb everything was looking and even gave me a sneak peak on the camera. Holy moly!! 

After all was said and done, I came home still feeling the high of finally letting myself go, breaking down that wall of insecurity, and I decided this was the new me.

This was originally for my husband, the sexiest gift he would ever receive. Then it turned into about me.

Nichole told me, and kept putting that in my head to remember this is for you, not him. I didn’t understand what that meant. I do now...

Several weeks later, I make it a point to wake up 10mins earlier every day. I started a “healthy lifestyle” and am currently down 10lbs. My face has cleared up because it order to be sexy, you have to feel sexy, so I make sure to drink a little bit extra water everyday and to wash my face in the morning with that little extra time.

I think back to my initial thought about that “price shock." I would’ve paid $10,000 for someone like those two ladies to spend a couple hours with me to remind me how beautiful I am.

Nicole and Courtney, you have changed my life for the better and I hope your business takes you high and far, because you both have a gift to empower women, even if they are like me...with great husband, a job, a beautiful home and the perfect golden retriever puppy...

But shooting these raw emotional pictures gave me the edge and self awareness I didn’t know I was lacking.

Thank you again for all you’ve done, you touch lives more than you will ever know. 
(My husband thanks you too :)
