Bringing Out Your Inner Sex Kitten

When Miss R walked into the Belle Boudoir photography studio, she had no idea what she was getting herself into. She had decided that although a boudoir session was significantly beyond her level of comfort, that it would be an awesome gift for her boyfriend. When she arrived she was nervous, a tad scared of the unknown process of a professional photo shoot, and not completely confident that our hair and makeup artist, @NikomaSouza would know how to work with her naturally curly African American hair.

For most our clients, having 1.5-2hrs of hair and makeup prior to their shoot, allows time to calm down a bit, settle into their experience, and bring out their inner sex kitten. This is exactly what happened with Miss R. *rawr*

By the time Miss R was done with hair and makeup, she was dancing and prancing around the studio in excitement. She felt beautiful. She felt confident. She felt SEXY. Miss R had no reservations putting on a skintight one piece, thigh highs, and sky high heels. She arched her back and pointed her toes like a pro (with incredible direction from our Photographer, @CherylJones).

At the end of the day, Miss R left with more than an incredible gift for her boyfriend. She left with more confidence, more feminine empowerment, and more pep in her step than she had bargained for.

We LOVE this before and after of Miss R. What do you think?
