This client left her joyful flower session feeling “absolutely alive.” Um, yes please, I’ll take everyday!

Like most people I work with, she was worried about not feeling authentic, or looking fake in her photos. She was surprised to find that she felt completely natural and alive during her Self Love Session! As a Virginia boudoir photographer, it’s my job to guide and hold space for you to be your most authentic self. She loved this session so much, she told me she’s considering a nature session for next time.
(Hellllll yeah to more nature sessions!)

She was so full of joy throughout the entire session, and it really stands out! She wasn’t afraid to smile, laugh, and get giddy with it. I’m all about inviting joy, and letting confidence radiate.

She started off in a big, white sweater, to get those cozy vibes. Then, we spiced things up by showing off strappy black underwear from the client closet. Her second outfit was a dark red, lace bodysuit with a sheer wraparound skirt. Then, we did some shots on the bed, with just the sheet. It is such a classic and beautiful vibe, and a look that I recommend everyone try!

My favorite part was including the flowers as a prop at the end of our shoot. I love how she used them as an extension of herself. It really added to the beauty that was radiating from her. It added a feminine and unique look to her pictures. 

It’s no secret that I loveeee LOVE this work in helping people discover their truest selves and build confidence. Hearing what my client had to say after this joyful flower session is exactly why I do this. Keep reading below to see her thoughts on her session!

What made you choose us for your session? 🙂

A friend shared that her experience was life-changing for her. This was not something I had considered before! Until she shared how her experience with you radically changed the way she felt about herself.

What were you the most nervous about coming into your session?

I was nervous that I would not feel authentic, and would look like somebody faking trying to feel confident and sexy.

How do you feel now that you’ve completed the session?

I feel absolutely alive, with every piece of myself, mind, body and soul coming together. I feel happy, I feel proud, I feel like a breath of fresh air. Not only did I do the thing, but I absolutely leaned in to allowing myself to be vulnerable and trust the process and love myself, deeply and wholly for exactly who I am. I felt and still feel beyond authentic and in awe of myself, and have no idea how I didn’t see that before. I feel like I’m on fucking fire and I just want to fan the flames and let myself keep blazing on.

What was your favorite part of the session?

Honestly, I loved the prep and meditation leading up to it. I loved everyone’s flexibility and that there was no rush. I had no idea how fast or slow time was going by, and truly just got to experience and live in the moment. I especially loved Hannah’s flexibility in that I could share and make suggestions and ask to try things when ideas came up. She was totally open and was able to tell me what would work well and what we might do alternatively. My creativity is one of my favorite things about myself, and this was such a safe space to be myself, share ideas, try new things, and also go along for the ride.

What, if anything, could have been improved about your session?

Nothing at all, it exceeded my expectations on all levels. I’m definitely thinking about an outdoor shoot for next time seeing how others have enjoyed all the big nature vibes. But, this was perfectly exactly as it was.

Do you have any advice for people looking to book their own session?

Definitely keep an open mind. Hannah & co create such a safe space and meet you exactly where you are at. No matter if you are anxious or exhilarated or feel all of the things, be kind to yourself and allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling. This is the best money I have ever spent because it was more than the experience. It was an investment in myself, and all I want to do is keep leaning in to the confidence I didn’t know I had been missing this whole time.

Would you recommend us to a friend?

Hell yes! I already have recommended to five other people.

I can’t recommend this experience enough. We are perfect in all of our imperfections, and I have never felt that more than during my experience with Hannah. This was such a warm, safe, and creative space where I felt loved and bathed in light for exactly who I am. If you are on the fence, you will not regret it. I can’t believe how much time I wasted not loving my body, and tearing myself down prior to this photo shoot. Afterwards, I feel so proud of myself and found a part of myself that I didn’t know existed prior to this. That confidence is carried forward with self-love everywhere I go, and found this a truly dynamic and transformative experience. Keep an open mind – you have nothing to lose and everything to gain, and I promise you will not regret one minute of it.
