Miss H did a session for her honey’s 30th birthday, and ended up getting the gift of confidence for herself. #IndianapolisBoudoir
I secretly love when women come in to do a session as a gift for their significant other’s. I love to walk them through the experience, and see how their mind starts to change a bit, and think about what THEY really want from their session. Once they’ve chosen their outfits carefully, based on what their partner likes AND what they like, they start to think about poses, and maybe pour through my IG and website, to get ideas. They start to really imagine themselves in those poses, but doubts creep in. “I don’t look like her”, or “I’m awkward, I don’t think I can pull that expression off.” Then they start to relax in hair + makeup, with a glass of champagne, and get to know me over some gabbing while Heather does her thing. By the time we start shooting, we’re friends, and they’re like, “Ok, this girl, knows what she’s doing, I’m just going to do what she tells me, and everything should be good.” They leave the session feeling confident, but still a little nervous about how THEIR images look. Once I send that sneak peek though, fears start to go out the window, and excitement sets in!
At their reveal, they can’t believe the weird poses and awkward facial expression I had them do, resulted in images that are sexy AF! “Is that ME?” is a question, mostly in shock statement I get all the time at our reveals. They can’t believe it’s actually hard to narrow down the images they’re going to put in their album or image box. It took us almost 2 hours to narrow down to 30 images, that made up the highlight reel of Miss H’s session, to fill her album with. This is where doing a collection that includes your full gallery on USB comes in handy! This way we can make your album or image box, the highlight reel, and you can still look back on all the gorgeous images from your session year after year. <3
