Today I have a very special boudoir blog post for you coming straight from my Grays Harbor Boudoir Studio, and it’s a Transformation Tuesday! It features Gerri, a gorgeous and confident woman who was an absolute pleasure to work with. As you can see, she is extremely photogenic. She doesn’t think so but I think this boudoir photoshoot helped her to see that.
The transformation that happens at my Grays Harbor Boudoir Studio is something amazing to see. I love showing these before and afters because you get to see what goes into your boudoir photoshoot. You get to see the styling, the posing, the editing, and the confidence grow from the beginning of the shoot to the end. It FEELS amazing to sit in my stylist’s chair and have her take care of you in the way that she does. It FEELS amazing to have someone do your hair and makeup and focus on YOU. And if you FEEL amazing then your confidence is going to burst out of you and you’re going to feel like the goddess that you truly are. She’s always in there, sometimes we just have to coax her out of you.
We met at my boudoir studio for her session and immediately got to talking and laughing. Her hair and makeup was done by Kennedy, one of my stylists who did an amazing job. Although we had already planned ahead in my pre boudoir photoshoot questionnaire, Kennedy confirmed with Gerri the exact look that she wanted.
Once Gerri was finished getting pampered and styled, we began the shoot. She brought five or six different outfit changes for the session and I loved them all. Gerri is a school bus driver and an EMT so we absolutely had to incorporate some of her profession into her photos.
We talked beforehand, and Gerri had initially booked this session to surprise her husband with a Christmas gift. Initially I was booked and not taking any more appointments in time for Christmas. But things worked out and we were able to get her in. I am so so happy that we did. When Gerri saw her images for the first time she was blown away. And her husband was equally excited on Christmas day to be given such a beautiful gift!
“Amber is an amazing photographer. I was so nervous going into my session. I was worried I would look stupid and not like the photos. She communicated with me and made me feel really prepared and like I had a lot of control in what the results would be by showing her what I wanted through a shared Pinterest board. When I finally got there the environment was really welcoming. Kennedy was awesome and made me look insanely beautiful. My husband doesn’t like makeup but he loved the way my hair and makeup looked and is encouraging me to do my makeup that way more often! The session was great and Amber told me exactly what to do. I felt really comfortable. After I walked out feeling like I had spent a refreshing afternoon with friends. But I also felt like a goddess. I wasn’t gonna share my pictures with anyone but my husband. Then my preview came in and I had to double take to make sure it was me but the tattoos matched so I knew it was. It was breathtaking and so amazing. I started sharing it with my friends immediately and they were equally shocked at how gorgeous it was. Then the gallery came in the day after my shoot I was speechless. I looked like Marilyn Monroe and instantly was in love with the photos. Honestly they are mine and my husband’s favorite photos. This experience not only met but exceeded my expectations and I cannot wait to do it again. And to top it off I now have a new favorite Facebook group to connect and share with women including Amber and keep feeling confident and beautiful. Thank you so much for everything. If you are considering doing a session contact Amber Carl and set it up you won’t regret it and will be thrilled with the results. Don’t let anything hold you back because you will be missing out on a great experience and she can work with whatever it is that you think isn’t perfect.”
I’m glad to hear she had such a positive experience!
Without further adieu, the stunningly beautiful Gerri!
