See myself in a whole new way

As a gift, Ms. A’s daughter gave her the gift of a boudoir session at Belle Boudoir. She was in need of a self confidence boost. She needed to remember that even though she is a grandmother, mother, and wife, she is a beautiful woman first and foremost.

Ms. A arrived at the Belle Boudoir studio and immediately began her transformation through hair and makeup with Nikoma. She had never worn false eyelashes and loved how glamorous they made her look and feel. With a few hair extensions added to her already beautiful red locks, she was ready for her session with Cheryl to begin. Ms. A loved that Cheryl would laugh with her throughout the session and that she was also very encouraging – especially through the more difficult poses. 😉

When her session was over, Ms. A’s husband picked her up and he couldn’t keep his eyes off of her. She felt beautiful. Her session with Belle Boudoir  helped her to “see (herself) as a beautiful woman. When she needs a pick-me-up, Ms. A looks at her pictures to “remind (her) that (she) is beautiful. Both inside and out.”

“Thank you Cheryl and Nikoma for letting me see myself in a whole new way. I will remember this photo shoot for a long time and will always look back on it with fond memories (and also a few of the laughs with Cheryl). Thank you both for boosting my confidence.” -Ms. A
